One week after starting a 12-week daily eating and exercise plan designed for them by LiveLighter experts, Sarah and Josh Griffiths are already feeling and seeing the benefits of their healthy lifestyle changes.
Sarah, 27, who has an office job, reports she has lost 3kg and husband Josh, 29, a sales rep, has dropped 4kg after just a week of eating home-prepared, low-fat meals and starting exercise.
Besides some soreness from muscles that were unused to cycling, the adjustment had been much easier than he expected, Mr Griffiths said.
"I've got a massive boost of energy and my concentration levels have gone through the roof. My work level has stepped up and I have found I have been able to cope with it better."
He had enjoyed the greater variety of the food and had been sticking to his resolution to make time to prepare and eat healthy food before going out on the road to avoid the temptation to "eat on the run".
The dietary changes combined with exercise had been refreshing and easy to sustain, Mrs Griffiths said.
She had been confident to utilise leftover muffins from the meal plan, to substitute for breakfast one day when she did not have time to prepare the omelette recommended on their menu.
Extended family members visiting for dinner had also enjoyed the healthy menu and she had allowed herself a glass of wine.
Online shopping with home delivery had helped the busy couple keep their previously bare larder well stocked with fresh ingredients to continue their guided eating plan for the next week.Friends following her progress on Facebook had also signed up for the program that is available free at: livelighter.com.au.
