Improved My Life!
I'd like to thank you for all your help and support over the last few months, it really has helped me get the best from this programme and made a significant improvement to my life.
Thanks so much for all your advice, support and inspiration in helping me get back on track with a healthier lifestyle and the many rewards I am getting already: more energy, waking up looking forward to the day ahead and feeling so much more lively (and fitting back into some of the clothes which I thought I would have to kiss good bye). The most lasting and positive changes are those that happen subtly, over time, rather than suddenly and dramatically. Thank you so much for helping me introduce better nutrition in a way that fits in so well with my day to day life - and for helping me achieve such a positive change in such an enjoyable way with some truly delicious recipe ideas.
