A number of people at the Nuffield Leatherhead gym had told me about Nancy`s classes and how good they were so I tried them myself and that is how I first got to know her. I then started reading her blog and was very impressed with her scientific and factual approach to weight and fat loss and in particular how she had achieved a huge change in her own life by following these principles. Whilst I had a healthy BMI ( just about) I knew I was carrying more fat around my middle than I should. And I also knew that I was eating too much although I managed to justify it to myself on the grounds that I was eating “ healthy” food.
I decided to download My Fitness Pal and set myself a calorie target, more out of curiosity than anything else, and realised after a couple of weeks that I had lost about 1kg. I then decided to enlist Nancy`s help online. It didn`t take me too long to work out that I was eating more than I needed to and that I was making meals into major events, carrying on eating even when I wasn`t hungry. I found it very important to work out “ how” I was eating too much and “why” I was doing it. The discipline of having to send Nancy my weight and measurements every week was very helpful as I knew I couldn`t cheat. Over a 20 week period, I lost about 8 kg and about 6% of bodyfat.
Nancy is incredibly supportive and motivating. She makes it abundantly clear that when it comes to weight and fat loss, food is fuel and calories are calories – there is no need for fad diets or omission of food groups. Nancy also encourages you to think about making changes to your food intake that are sustainable in the long term – she doesn`t expect you to cut out things that you really enjoy but instead makes you view them as part of your overall calorie intake.
Nancy was always available to answer questions and comment on any particular issue I had. Most importantly, her approach has instilled in me a different approach to food and as a result I have not lapsed into bad habits!
I would wholeheartedly recommend Nancy. I couldn`t have done it without her.
