My relationship with health and wellness started at a young age when I watched my father suffer a major heart attack at only 42. I was involved in a severe motorcycle accident that left me in a coma, with rehabilitation and a lifelong disability.
I have a family history of heart disease and type 2 diabetes, on top of my acquired brain injury. I needed to sort my health out, I was now 40 and had a morbidly obese BMI of 38.8 with high blood pressure! I had tried all sorts of diets and exercise programs. Every option I tried and failed at left me feeling more defeated.
I noticed friends in UK having success with The 1:1 Diet so, my wife and I were thrilled to discover it was accessible in Perth, and they had a tasty range of products and an amazing network of Consultants to support me through every step of the program.
I began at stage 1B and was quickly encouraged by the results to continue with simple calorie and portion control.
I am relieved to have found a nutrition program that is easy to follow and has changed my relationships with food and beverages. This has encouraged me to have enthusiasm for exercising and challenging myself. Since joining the program and reducing most of my weight, I have completed several triathlons, an 80k duathlon, an international running event and next week will complete a 24hr ultramarathon!
Since I began, I have lost around 40kg, I am determined to smash these results even further with the help of Claire and The 1:1 Diet!
