I’m Nick, 48 years of age and an International Airline Pilot. I am the proud dad of 5 children and the luckiest husband to the love of my life, my beautiful wife Penny. With a family of 7 consisting of 4 teenagers and a 1-year-old, our household is nothing short of ‘active’. As an Airline Pilot, aside from regular technical assessments, I undergo a vigorous medical examination annually. Flying long hours through the night, sleeping at irregular intervals, and enjoying many fine international cuisines during my travels over the years would see me gain weight, only then to rush and lose it before each medical. My eating habits needed a serious overhaul, it was time to put a stop to this amount of ‘excess baggage’!
And then came COVID. Lockdowns, excess eating, and a further reduction in activity exacerbated the weight gain. I desperately looked into weight loss ideas. I needed to do this for my family and for myself.
After hearing about the Cambridge 1:1 diet through a family friend, I decided to make an appointment with the Oakleigh Clinic and discuss my goals and all options available with Maria. My Consultant became Aspa, who put together my plan after reviewing my goals and aspirations. The first month was aimed at me losing weight for my baby daughter’s baptism- one has to look their best in photographs! And did the weight disappear.. 10kg in fact!
So after 3.5 months, I have lost 27kg and I feel absolutely amazing! I am more active with my family with increased energy levels. My BMI has significantly dropped and I look forward to blitzing each medical examination from here on. I am forever thankful for the guidance received whilst on the 1:1 diet and fully recommend this program to anyone who is serious about changing their life for the better.
