Want to know more? Below are some of the most frequently asked questions from our members. If you have any questions that aren’t answered here, contact us and we will do our best to help.

Our plans are suitable for anybody who wants to lose body fat and improve their overall health and well-being. You should be willing and open to learn about how to diet without restrictions in food, and looking to adopt new and healthier habits with regards to movement and exercise. Our plans are also suitable for anybody who wants to make a change to their lifestyle, those who are willing to take a slow, steady and sustainable approach to fat loss and a healthier, happier lifestyle. Above all, our plans are suitable for anyone who is willing to make some sacrifices and changes to their current lifestyle.

Contact us for a personal consultation call to make sure we are the right fit for each other. Or simply sign up, complete the diet and lifestyle questionnaire and return it to us. When you’re ready to get started, we will draw up a meal plan based on your likes and dislikes when it comes to food. We will also suggest an exercise/movement protocol that will complement your personal meal plan.

Macro is short for macronutrient. The food you intake daily is made up of macros: protein, fat and carbohydrate. These are the main fuel sources for the human body, and each is needed by the body.

  • Protein helps you grow, repair and build new muscle tissue. Proteins are made up of amino acids, which are the building blocks of many structures within the body. Protein is also the most satiating macronutrient and a specific amount is required by every human being. An adequate protein content in your diet helps to keep you feeling fuller for longer. 
  • Carbohydrates are our main energy source; the body needs carbohydrates to function on a day-to-day basis.  
  • Fats are required for your body in order to absorb fat soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K. Fats are also required to insulate your body, protect your vital organs, support cell growth and regulate hormones.

Every macronutrient corresponds to a specific calorie amount per gram. This is why our strategy is based on calories and macros.  

All plans are calorie-based plans. We calculate your calories for fat loss based on your needs and goals. Calories are based on weight, height, sex and current/planned activity levels.

We currently offer two options: 

  • Our IIFYM (if it fits your macros) plans involve coaching to help you track your food and macro nutrients using apps such as MyFitnessPal. Based on your needs and goals, we tell you your calories and macros for each day and it’s then up to you to plan your own food based on these. You will receive a PDF guide explaining how to do this if you sign up for this option.

  • Our tailored meal plans are 100% tailored to food you like and enjoy. We don’t believe in bland and boring! We believe in variety and incorporating nice things to eat in your plan – this makes it a long-term sustainable eating plan. We aim for results but not quick fixes and not starvation. Food for fuel and food you like. This plan tells you what to eat each day and is specific to you, your goals, your activity levels and your calorie requirements.

Weekly check-ins and plan alterations are provided with both plans. We offer 1-1 WhatsApp support seven days a week during working hours, along with access to our Group Chat where recipes and hints and tips are shared.

If you haven’t tracked macros and calories before we would recommend that you start with a tailored meal plan; after 4-6 weeks you could move to flexible dieting if you are interested in that method of eating. While on a tailored meal plan we always encourage you to get familiar with an app like MyFitnessPal so you feel able to make swaps to meals and snacks on your plans. By doing this yourself, over time you will become more aware of the nutritional value of foods. 

In short, you will learn how to live a healthy, happy and sustainable life. You will also:

  • learn how to diet without food restrictions – no food or food group is off limits when dieting
  • learn how to incorporate social occasions during your dieting phase
  • learn about portion control and moderation
  • learn about how other variables impact your fat loss journey – stress, sleep, water intake, movement, hormones, food sources etc
  • learn that is not always about the scales – it’s about how you look, feel, energy levels and performance in training

For general fat loss, exercise in some form is recommended. Exercise and nutrition work very much in tandem, and it will be expected that you will incorporate some form of exercise dependant on your goals.
