Read below 12 week results:
“I didn’t start the KSFL 12 week problem because I needed to lose weight. My weight is fine, my diet on the whole is good. I’ve always lived very healthy during the week, and less so at the weekend. I ran half marathons every couple of months, making me relatively fit. This all changed 2 years ago, when my Dad who suffered with alcohol addiction became very ill. I work in the cycling industry and spend a lot of time driving up and down the county, it’s not uncommon for me to drive over 1000 miles over the week. Following a tough week, I was finishing work on Friday and driving to Lancashire to look after Dad. I would head back to Surrey late Sunday evening. This went on for 6 months until the inevitable happened.
His death hit me hard and to cut a very long 18 months short I found myself in dark place, self medicating with drink. I wasn’t sleeping or eating and the thought of putting on my trainers and heading out for a run was the last thing on my mind. 6 months after losing Dad I had quite a serious operation and was laid up for 12 weeks. I was in a terribly dark place and could see no way out. I looked terrible and was an emotional wreck.
A Chance meeting with Lindsay Gillam (Total Body Fitness), she told me about KSFL and invited me to the launch night. After listening to Rachel talk about KSFL, and the topics covered throughout the 12 weeks I knew I had to give it a go. I wanted to get my life back, after all I wasn’t the one who died.
I chose to do 100% detox for 28 days, the results have been life changing, both physically and mentally . In the first 4 weeks I have lost 1.5″ from my waist, 4.3/4″ from my hips and 1/2″ from my left arm. This is great, but more importantly I feel a sense of calm. I meditate 3 times per week, I’m sleeping through the night. I’m up early to do KSFL workouts, which I do twice through. I’m also running again. It has changed my life. I can’t thank Lindsay enough for telling me about KSFL and inviting me to the launch night, that very first night I started a life changing journey, initially to get like back, but it’s given me so much more.”
“I want to thank Lindsay Gillam for introducing me to the KSFL programme. It’s amazing how my mindset has changed over the last 28 days. Although I have chosen the scenic route (mainly because my choices as a vegetarian who doesn’t eat fish would be limited), I have generally stuck to it apart from when I have been out or at special events. I have not touched a drop of caffeine although I confess I’ve had the odd glass of wine but I don’t really like it anymore! My friends seriously don’t believe I have gone off wine! Anyway, the food I’ve been eating has been amazing and so easy to make. I need that being a busy working mum of two! My clothes feel looser but I’ve not measured myself for a few weeks so I’m hoping I’ve lost a few more inches but I have lost half a stone.
Lindsay has been extremely supportive and active on our Facebook group always answering our questions and giving advice, encouraging us along the way. Enjoyed the weekly meetings/HIIT workout , her live videos (even though I didn’t watch them until the following day!) and all the posts regarding specific topics – she has been a superb mentor.
Having attended Lindsays classes over the past few years and knowing what an excellent fitness instructor she is, it filled me with confidence to commence this 12 week programme and I am so pleased I signed up to it!
“I have not had anywhere near the weight / inch loss that others have. I’ve lost just 4 pounds and 6.5 inches, but as you know I am not doing this to lose weight. I only weighed 9stone 1lb when I started so I didn’t consider myself to be big and I was worried that if I lost too much weight I would lose it off my face and look even more haggard than I do anyway. So, I’m very pleased with the results I’ve had and I’m keen to remain at my current weight.
I started to lose weight last year when I found the 8 week blood sugar diet, written by Dr Michael Mosley. It is aimed at people who are either bordering type 2 diabetics or who have already been diagnosed as such. I wasn’t either of those. I chose to make the food in that book because I was fed up with meat and 2 veg. The recipes in his book are so gorgeous. I didn’t follow the strict 8 week diet, but even so I lost 4 lbs following those recipes and most of it came from my waist. A great result as I had tried for years to reduce my waistline and it didn’t matter how much exercise I did it just wouldn’t go down. On the fat loss diet you remove the bad carbohydrates from your diet so when I started KSFL I was already weened off them.
So, in total since about March last year I’ve lost a total of about 8lbs. My clothes feel so much more comfortable.
There are a number of reasons for doing KSFL:
I was keen to enhance the knowledge I had got from the low blood sugar diet.
I wanted to reduce my sugar intake, permanently and cut down on the amount of alcohol I drank.
after my best friend moved to Spain last year I was feeling a bit lonely and wanted to meet some new people, who, like me, are concerned about looking after themselves and not just allowing themselves to become blobs! So many think that is just inevitable.
I wanted to find a new fitness regime as I was fed up with my old gym after going there for at least the last 20 years!
So, how’s it gone? Well,
the information we are getting from both Rachel and you is fascinating. It supplements the information in the Michael Mosley book and broadens it. I believe both sources are well researched and reliable so I’m very happy to follow both.
I have reduced both my sugar intake and alcohol and I have every intention of not slipping back into my old habits
the support that the Facebook group give to everyone is invaluable. I feel a bit like an interloper as I only know one other person who is doing KSFL but I have been treated in exactly the same way as everyone else whenever I’ve posted on Facebook. I’m really looking forward to getting to know everyone a bit better over the next 8 weeks.
I have enjoyed your Wednesday evening classes, although I thought I was going to die after the first one I did. Once my gym membership has ended I’ll definitely be doing more of your classes.
AND, (don’t worry, I’ll finish soon) I think that by cutting out dairy products I have cured the bursitis I had in my left hip for 8 or 9 years and I’ve manged to reduce the heart palpitations I’ve suffered for the last 3 to 4 years since I started with the menopause. The low blood sugar diet does not cut out dairy, but I am going to do my utmost to cut it out of my diet from now on.
So, all in all I’m very happy with KSFL, even though I’ve hardly lost any weight. Thanks for letting me join.
“So I started KSFL to lose some pounds and support Mr P but I am thrilled to discover that I am now totally converted to a completely new way of eating which I believe in the profession is called a “Paleo diet” with no snacking in-between meals. I have enjoyed cooking which quite honestly I used to hate. I have discovered the joy of Yoga and the benefits of HIIT . I have enjoyed making new friends who are also sharing this lifestyle change and the best bit is I haven’t felt particularly restricted as I have always eaten healthily and exercised but by cutting out the sugar , diary and wheat in my diet I have seen a massive change in just 4 weeks. I have also noticed that I haven’t had any heart palpitations (caused by an increase in my thyroxine dosage ) since starting KSFL !! And here are the results
I have lost 10lbs of fat and 8.5 inches
1 inch from my chest
4.5 inches from my waist
1.5 inches from my hips
1 inch from my right thigh
.5 inch from my left thigh
both arms stayed the same
My Body Mass Index has reduced from
25.7 to 24.7
My Body Fat has reduced from
33.5 to 31.4
My Body Water has increased
from 46.2 to 47.8
Thank you to Lindsay Gillam for introducing us to KSFL and for all the support and tips you have given us as well as the great HIIT class.
Not forgetting MrP Andrew Price who has done amazingly and has also supported me on my journey. regards
Honesty is the best policy.
I’m BIG!. And I know I’m BIG! (Angela Price keeps telling me)
I’ve never liked discussing my actual weight but with everyone in the group being honest and open I thought I would put it out there, mainly so I don’t stop the journey I’m am on.
Highlights of the last 28 days.
1: The food. It’s has been tasty (with the help of great herbs ? and spices), and with zero sugars my taste buds are loving everything.
2: The group. Inspiring, informative and honest. That’s all I can say.
3: Not doing double Bootcamp workouts 3 times a week. (Loving that ?)
4: Found Lindsay’s boxercise tough but very enjoyable (and amazingly de-stressing) which may have been a contributing factor to my inches lost off my neck (Kerry) and my chest.
5: Getting to bed earlier and Sleeping alot better
Now for the brutal bit.
11.01.17 to 12.02.17
I have lost 6inches in total
Weight 19st 7.5 to 18st 3.5 (18lbs off)
Body Mass Index reduced from 36.2 to 34.4
Body fat reduced from 48 to 44.6
Body water increased from 37.2 to 39.7
My goals for the next 28 days.
You may notice my Bmi was, and still is way to high.
Over 30 is clinically obese ?.
So I’m aiming to be at 29.9 by the end of the 12 week program.
Oh, and to buy a really nice fitted suit.
Thank you Angela, Lindsay and the KSFL Jan 2017 crew.
Couldn’t do it without you.
Best of luck and results in your own journeys.”
“I am much better able to cope with my busy lifestyle and much calmer when dealing with my 2 year old and any day to day niggles in general. Nothing comes easy, and the wine and chocolate monster will always follow me, but I now know how to cope with them, and still have the odd treat so that it’s all worth it. Oh, and I look fantastic in my new sexy trousers.”
“So final weigh in was a loss of 11 lb and a total of 13 inches lost.
My son came home fom a school trip on Saturday and when he hugged me he said oh my god mum you feel really skinny! Lol
That was nice ?
Skinny is a little optimistic! ? but it’s nice to feel comfortable in my clothes !
Anyway I’m pleased with the results. I took the scenic route enjoying the odd sweet potato, berries and breakfast bars.
Anyway we as a family have made quite a few lifestyle changes that we are going to stick to and I hope to continue to lose more weight over the next 8 weeks.
I’m trying to look at this as a long term thing and hope by Xmas I’ll be where I want to be.
The first four weeks has had some really tough moments but I got through it with the support of lindsay, Facebook group, my friends and my family.
I’m definitely feeling better but the main thing for me is having control back which I’ve lacked for a long time!
60 day results:
Lesley: “Well I did it, completed the 8 weeks of healthy eating, I have to say it has changed the way I think of food & certainly myself and I’ve lost 1st 5lbs.
I have not been happy with the way I looked for a very long time, in fact I hated the way I looked, buying new clothes was depressing, the only other time I felt like this about my body was after having my son, at least I had an excuse for the weight gain. I hit 50 this year & it was never in my plans to feel & look the way I did, the menopause has a lot to answer for, early on in the year I was inspired & slightly jealous of Lin Sheldrake’s determination of following KSFL so when the opportunity came up in September I reluctantly signed up, I was panicking to whether I could really give up all the things I loved to eat, well I did it, could I have done more yes definitely Exercise, but with a very demanding job that wasn’t always easy but certainly an area I can work on, as Lindsay would say pick a challenge for the week ? Thank you everybody in the group for the motivating posts, the endless recipe ideas I have never used so many herbs & spices, thank you lin for encouraging me to sign up & a HUGE THANK YOU to Lindsay Williams here’s to next years hols & possibly wearing those ? again ? — ￼feeling proud.”
“I’ve lost a stone and 11 inches all over. Simon (not an official member of the group I realise !) has also lost a stone. He bought some new trousers today….34 inch waist….he was in 38 inch ones previously ! Aside from the weight and inch loss we’ve both benefitted enormously from the KSFL programme…our sleep has improved, our stress levels have reduced, the brain fog has cleared and we both feel great ! We’ve really enjoyed the clean eating too (some of the recipes have become family favourites which all four of us enjoy). I think we definitely have the tools now to incorporate this into our lives going forward. There will be indulgent days and weekends and holidays, days when we fall off the wagon and days when only a G&T will do ! but we now know what to do to get back on track. A big thank you to you and the group for the invaluable support. And I’m now a big fan of green juices !”
Julie: “Regrets about starting KSFL in September, HELL YES…
I should have done it at the beginning of the year and I’m ever so slightly angry with myself for not doing so.
This time last year I was in therapy for PTSD, doing Lindsey’s exhausting classes was my only rest… from thinking.
By the time I rocked up to the launch night (crying most of the way though it), I’d not slept properly for 15 months, I was an utter wreck.
So gains… Sleeping like a baby (and I’d thought I wasn’t sleeping because I was stressed, in fact I was stressed because I wasn’t sleeping). I feel in control again and so much more organised. I’m enjoying cooking and eating (my fussy teenager still hasn’t got used to clean eating, so he covers everything in ketchup). No debilitating period cramps or uncomfortable bloating.
Lost, 12lbs and 11″, I’m dead chuffed with that and yes, I could have done better if I’d not had alcohol at the weekends but I like wine and this had/has to be sustainable for me.
So thank you Lindsey for encouraging me to do this and your support throughout but why didn’t you make me do it sooner? ?
Thanks to everyone else for doing it with me, the team effort, knowing we were all in it together meant I stuck at it.”
Hollie: “So here are my week 1 and week 8. Im so happy with my results and glad I signed up as Ive got back into pre pregnancy clothes which took me nearly a year with my first. After having my second I felt I lost not only control of my weight but maybe the `baby blues` carried on a little longer than last time. I relied on coffee and sugar to get me through the day and nights. Thank you to Lindsay Williams and everyone in the group for all the encouragement and support, I didn’t post much but I did read all the posts which definitely got me through the 8 weeks.”
“It took me a while to decide to commit to this programme as I thought I knew everything there was to know about eating good and bad food. How wrong was I?!
I did it because of my increasing waist/abdomen and also I was becoming so lethargic, not sleeping well and a bit stuck in a rut.
I can honestly say it has completely changed the way I eat.
I now have breakfast every morning and look forward to my big colourful and healthy salad at lunch.
I am not snacking in between because I just don’t feel hungry.
I will be continuing to eat healthy for most of the time, knowing that having the odd treat is absolutely fine, because I never want to go back to how I was eating before.
Thank you for all your support and encouragement.
I may not come to many classes but I have been doing most of your online HTT videos and will be doing weight training from now on.
Thank you again for such an inspirational course I will certainly be recommending it to friends.”
“I never thought I’d send anyone this first photo but as KSFL has taught us we’re all in this together & changes can be made.
I started KSFL in January with an attitude of let’s give it a go. Wow what a change it’s made in my mindset & how much I’ve learned in how I look at food.
I’ve always exercised but now I do the style that suits me best. With Lindsay’s help & choices offered I can do a quick HIIT session at home or group session with loads of motivation.
The KSFL family are a great group & even though we all know what we need to do in the future with the tools we’ve been given. I for one am looking forward to the next KSFL challenge as we achieve more together.
Results for The 60 Day programme 8 is 12lbs & 12inches.
Once again many thanks Lindsay”
