Hi

Im considering buying the guide however I'm very small/skinny and would really like to put on weight. There are some wonderful posts about women feeling good about themselves but I did notice for nearly all the goal is/was to lose weight. Does this mean it's mainly geared to losing weight? I notice in certain sample recipes there isnt as many carbs in addition so they are quite low calorie. My metabolism is really fast so if I lost more weight I would look unhealthy :-( My main goal is improved diet, less tiredness and to relieve some IBS like symptoms after eating certain foods e.g. bread etc. I am going to try and increase more muscle at the gym to help gain more weight. Im just a bit wary of investing £50 if it might not be for me so any help/advice/experiences would be greatly appreciated Xx

I am definitely not doing this for weight loss. I bulk out some of my meals and adapt a bit as I have 2 young kids and I haven't lost any weight which is fine for me. I take 1 day off a week exercise wise and I have a treat evening where I all ow myself a bit of chocolate but that's generally it. I wouldn't say people are here to loose weight- this journey is so much more than that and the weight is a by product x

Hey gorgeous, all the recipes are dietician approved and really balanced! Everyone is different on the plan but you can definitely up your portion sizes and add in things like sweet potato, porridge and complex carbs like quinoa to bulk out any meals. Let me know how you get on xx

Plus you could eat the healthy meals and have something extra with it or modify for your needs?

I don't think this is a weight loss programme at all. I think it's a side effect for people like me who probably have few pounds to lose. (I have some baby weight hanging around!) The programme does have carbs and it has actually quite a lot of healthy fats! For me it is a healthy eating programme and the fact that I have shifted 3 lbs is a side effect because it probably needed to happen! I haven't set out to do on a diet I just wanted to eat right. You eat so much on this plan - no joke sometimes I look at the plate like its Everest!!! Not because it tastes bad but because the food is as high as a mountain!!! X

It's best £50 I spent . If you trying to gain I would increase your carb and protein intake

Hi there it's a bit of a different story but I have just recovered from anorexia and I am still a small frame so I definetley do not want to loose weight. To be perfectly honest if I were to follow the plan food and exercise wise as it is shown I would definitely loose weight no doubt about it. So I use it mostly for the yoga and mediation as well as a few meals ideas. So the porridge and breakfast ideas are generally good, however a lot of the lunch and dinner ideas need carbs adding in. I also suffer from IBS so the meals which contain beans I defiantly do not have as they are a trigger. U less you are celiac there is not need to avoid good quality bread such as sourdough or rye or spelt bread. These are all good quality and slow realising carbs. So it wouldn't be a waste of money you would just need to make sure you add in healthy carbs to meals and probably a couple of snacks a day. At the beginning of the plan maddie did a video and mentioned it is about 1400 calories so definetley aimed at weight loss. Hope that helps X X X
