Louisa has gone from a size 22 to a size 8 after following Atkins Nutritional Approach. She spent years yo-yo dieting and only ever reached a size 14, on any diet, and always regained the weight; and more.
Louisa says "I've never ever been a size 8 even as a teenager and it feels strange taking size 8 clothes of racks in shops"
Louisa started on Atkins on Feb 15th in 2015 and hasn't missed any high carb foods or ever got bored with the choice of foods on Atkins. She swears she'll never go back to her old eating habits. Even on holiday she made wise choices and had chicken wings, pickled eggs, salads etc. Louisa loves finding new recipes on the Atkins UK website and on Pinterest.
She has the support of her partner, Craig, although he does make fun sometimes but is supportive and will eat a lot of the same foods, as will her daughter, Alex. Her Stepdaughter, Maisy, also follows Atkins too just to lose a little puppy fat and she did well.
Louisa enjoys the Atkins drinks & bars all the time and they are a great snack to have at work. Although she has to hide them from her daughters who love them too!
Having struggled with his weight since childhood, Paul Timmins, 43, went on to develop worrying health problems including shortness of breath and high blood pressure. Paul was determined to shift the pounds once and for all.
“On 19th January 2012 I was told something I never expected and ultimately changed my life forever. After routine blood tests my GP told me that I was suffering from Type 2 diabetes. My initial reaction to this news was sheer anger, I refused to be diabetic and I didn’t want medication to control my life."
