Elaine Stobbs and Amanda Love of Gosforth, Newcastle, felt their energy levels soar when they abandoned low-fat foods – and lost weight too.
And they were so impressed with the results, they started running their own classes.
Amanda said: “Both Elaine and I are in our 50s and have demanding jobs and family responsibilities to juggle. That said we are loving runing the classes – it is great seeing the results people are getting and helping people every step of the way.
“It started with an avocado and has ended up with a business. It is increasingly being recognised that looking and feeling good is not all about weight loss but just as importantly what you eat.
“I was fed up of being told I could eat low-fat yogurts – which I knew were full of sugar – but not an avocado which I knew was really good for me! So I googled just that – losing weight but being allowed avocados.
“Kick Start Fat Loss came up. The nearest class was in Leeds so I gave it a go using one of their online courses and did the seven-day detox to start with. I could not believe how fantastic I felt after just seven days! The longer I followed the plan the more fantastic I felt – my skin, energy levels etc.
“I wanted to bring KSFL to the North East as I knew from my own experience that it is often vital to have group support rather than online weight loss programmes. As a result a friend. Elaine Stobbs and I purchased the KSFL franchise in NE3 in August.
“We are both in our 50s, have other day jobs and have never run a business before but truly believe in KSFL. Our first class are already having fantastic results. We have included photographs of us both as we are on the lifestyle change together.”
Amanda has lost 18lbs to date and Elaine 16lbs.
Top tip: “Our top tip is stop dieting and start living by making sure you do not eat low-fat foods as they are full of sugar. It is increasingly being recognised how bad for your health sugar is. Good fats keep you fuller for longer. And scales are for fish – concentrate on measuring yourself not weighing!”
