Minesh

My family have always owned shops. So it was a natural progression for me to have my own Post Office. But, with it came constant exposure to sweet stuff – not great when you love chocolate! I would snack on sugar. A chocolate bar here and there but honestly, one bar doesn’t really matter does it? Then I did the math... I had been gaining weight since I was in the shop at around 1 stone per year. Each month it was just 1-2lb that’s around. No big deal right?! But that’s around 140 extra calories a day (half a chocolate bar) and I wasn’t moving and was still eating the same in my diet.

I was at a wedding Dec 2014. I told myself I looked okay, but then I saw the photos. Wow. I was the biggest I had ever been and the pictures look terrible. With a one year old girl I started to become concerned about what type of Dad I was going to be. With the GP telling me I was two chocolate bars away from diabetes. All I did, all day was sit. I would move a couple of boxes but that was it.

 

I had to start my journey. The good news was I lost weight really fast, 5lb per week nearly every week, it was easy for a while. But, then it started to slow down, I started to become disheartened because I wasn’t near my goal yet. I had to lose 13 stone. Basically I had to be half the man I was before. A friend told me about this guy who was helping people lose weight, eat healthy, change their bodies fast and holistically. I decided this was the type of person I need to help me someone that wouldn’t just tell to train harder and lead me to injury.

I have to be honest, I had read up a lot about weight loss and thought I had a very good grasp on it, I come from a family that has many doctors so I was informed. When I met Anthony he told me down to almost the cellular level what was happening in my body when I eat or train a certain way. It was very interesting. But, what I needed to do to get results. He lived up to his word, he would tell me how my body would change, I would be able to lift this amount in kilograms, loss these pounds, gain this amount of muscle. Each week he would measure my body fat and muscular development and each week I followed the plan and I kept losing the weight.

 

Then came my brothers stag do. Now, I am not a big drinker but I will drink a lot when I am out with friends and this was 7 days of nonstop alcohol. It turned out I gain weight even faster than I lose it! My fat jumped up massively, my weight went up by two stone. It was very depressing, I had undone 6 weeks of work in 7 days. Anthony met and told me how we were going to deal with it, a week later all the “emergency weight” as he calls it was gone again. I wasn’t starving myself either, just eating the food and following the exercise plan he set out.. Back on track!

 

All was going great a couple more stone away from my target of 13 stone weight loss and… Rip. I turned my knee rigorously during a game of badminton and tore my ACL (the ligament in my knee). No exercise for 8 weeks and this was 8 weeks away from my photoshoot I'd planned.

 

Anthony stepped in again, assessed the damage, gave me some simple exercises to rehabilitate my knee faster. Three weeks later I was back on track and pushing it again. I reached the photo shoot with only 6lb to go, considering I had gained 2 stones and couldn’t work out for three weeks it was incredible I got this close.

Perhaps I would have found a way to lose weight without Anthony, but he doesn’t guess, he listens to what I want, learns about my life, looks at my body and applies a holistic and scientific approach. I got the results, loved the training and now I live to eat and exercise the healthy way.
