Now I am eating 2200 calories a day and dropping body fat. I now eat foods I enjoy. My energy has improved a lot especially at work, I am training four days a week and my strength has increased dramatically. I was having back issues all the time and no longer have these issues. I no longer have any cravings; I haven’t eaten potato crisps for months. My sleep has improved slightly I still need to improve in this area I believe this is also related to stress. My digestion has improved and I very rarely get bloated.

Yes but they have to have an open mind.

She took my advice and increased her calories to 1800 and included more carbs including milk and she has already lost 3kgs.
