Like most young girls I’d never been entirely happy with my figure, but I had a fairly active lifestyle and my fast metabolism as a teenager meant that my weight had never caused me a real issue. That all changed when I went to uni, with the pressure of freshers’ week meaning drinking every night, and my student budget leaving me with little to spend on fresh foods, I found I’d started to pile on the pounds. My typical daily diet would be carb heavy, and microwaveable, with weekends meaning a cheeky takeaway. And of course, being a student, there was always an excuse for a celebration, and always a drink to celebrate it with. Pick n mix were also a huge vice for me, with a sweet tooth, I’d fill up on sweets instead of taking time to prepare meals.
My lowest point came half way through my second year, I’d gone to a party thinking I looked quite nice, but when the photos appeared on facebook the next day, I couldn’t believe how big I’d gotten. I’d gained 2 stone and was now 12 and a half stone, and a dress size 16. That summer I went on holiday with my now ex boyfriend. We visited a waterpark on the first day, and the pictures of me in my bikini made me feel so embarrassed, I banned all photos from that holiday from facebook!
My action plan
Seeing those photos completely changed my outlook on life. I made a pact with my housemate to get into healthy eating, and stuck to it. I’d fill up on protein and slow release carbohydrates, eating eggs, lean meats, and snacking on nuts and greek yoghurt, rather than sweets. I got into exercise, and went to every class I could afford, trialling High Intensity Training, lifting weights and kickboxing, which was also a great stress relief! My workout buddy mentioned that she’d been trialling a new weight management supplement called MetaBurn. I’d never considered natural supplements before, but these contained raspberry ketones, and green coffee bean extract, which I’d seen in magazines, so I decided to give them a go. I’d take three a day, before a workout or a big meal, and found that they helped to speed up my metabolism, and gave me an instant energy boost when I wanted to push myself harder in my daily workout, as well as helping to tone up stubborn areas which I felt like I wasn’t getting to with exercise alone.
Now I’ve graduated and I’m in full time employment, I’m managing to keep the weight down. I plan my meals in advance, and bring healthy meals and snacks to work with me. I’ve also cut down on my drinking, and although I still can’t resist the odd bag of pick ‘n’ mix, I save them for very special occasions! I love my new figure, it’s strong as well as slim, and I know how hard I can push myself to achieve my fitness goals. Now I take part in endurance races and blog on my health and fitness goals, and I’m proud of what I’ve achieved, bring on the facebook photos!
Metaburn helped me slim down, taking me from flab to fab!
I’d always been into baking, I’d make a cake at every opportunity, for friends’ birthdays, work events or even sometimes just for a weekend treat. My friends always encouraged my hobby, for obvious reasons! But it got to the point where I’d regularly find myself whipping up cakes and treats for no reason whatsoever, it was like I was rewarding myself every day of the year! I don’t know what I was celebrating, but before long, I’d gained three stone, and was now 11 and a half stone, and a size 16, which looked severe on my tiny 5ft 1 height!
It got to the point, a year ago, where my friends wanted to arrange a summer holiday, and I realised I couldn’t bear the thought of them seeing me without my skinny jeans on, or covered up in layers of clothes and scarves. I told them I couldn’t afford the holiday and they didn’t ask me any more questions, but really, I couldn’t face up to seeing myself next to my skinny mates in the holiday photos.
That Christmas, I asked for a bike, and started cycling everywhere, it was easier for me as the prospect of running scared the life out of me. I cut back on snacks and vowed only to bake cakes once a week, or for a special occasion! I also started taking MetaBurn, a combination slimming tablet. I’d heard celebs talking about raspberry ketones, and green coffee bean extract, but never really thought much of it until a friend told me she was testing a new supplement which combined all the celebs favourite ingredients, a combination of Raspberry Ketones, Green Tea extract and Green Coffee Bean. I’d only take two to three Metaburn fat burner pills a day, usually before a meal, and I found that they really helped shift the fat in what I’d always seen to be my problem areas, my stomach and thighs.
Today I weighs 7 and a half stone, and I’m a size 8. I feel it suits my body shape more and I can do so much more of the things I used to avoid through embarrassment before. This summer I went on holiday to Italy, and made sure there were lots of pictures of my new figure! I’m proud to show it off and I feel healthier than ever. Now I’m so much more reasonable when it comes to treating myself. I’ll make myself a really nice fresh vegetable soup, or treat myself to fresh fruit as a snack. As long as I’ve got my MetaBurn fat burner tablets and I know that a treat should be just that, a treat, I feel happy and confident within my figure.
Since having my two children, I've never managed to lose the extra weight that I put on during pregnancy. Plus, being a single mother and having a stressful, full-time job has meant that my weight reached an all time high of 16 stone in September 2013.
Having tried and failed to lose weight with a string of extreme diets that just caused my weight to yo-yo, I decided to finally make a real change to my life and lose weight properly. I planned every one of my meals to make sure I had a balanced diet and got plenty of fruit and vegetables everyday and replaced fast food with home-made versions. I also decided to start exercising and so tried to fit in some walking or jogging most days of the week.
I felt happy that I was making a change in my life but the results were not as great as I expected. I barely lost a pound in two weeks. My friend recommended that I try METABURN, a new powerful thermogenic weight loss aid. From the day I started taking it I noticed a huge difference. I felt energetic and refreshed and it really started to melt the fat away. With the same sort of diet plan and exercise that I was on previously, I lost almost 3 lbs in two weeks with METABURN. Now, almost 6 months down the line, I'm still taking METABURN and I've lost close to 2 stone. METABURN is fantastic, it has boosted how fast my body burns fat to new levels and has delivered results that exercise and diet alone could not.
My top tip would be to make sure you have two snacks through the day to tide you over between meals and it's important to occasionally include some naughty treats in there too like chocolate and crisps – they really helped me power through.
I would put 70% of my success down to METABURN and I strongly believe that if you want to lose weight, you need METABURN to really make your body burn fat and lose weight.
I had a weight problem for years. I would hate looking in the mirror and dresses would become too small to wear after a couple of months as I slowly put on even more weight but I'd keep them all, telling myself I'll fit in them one day. When I started having respiratory problems, my GP told me I was clinically obese and that I needed to lose weight to reduce the risk of even more serious problems. I realised I really needed to make a change for myself but also to set an example for my children.
My work colleague recommended thermogenic supplements because she had had some good results with them. I have tried weight loss pills before but didn't tolerate it well so I was a bit sceptical. I have previously tried MaxiMuscle's Thermobol and hated it because the ridiculously high caffeine content made me feel jittery, nauseous and gave me a headache. I started looking for thermogenic pills without caffeine and I read a lot of material on the benefits of Raspberry Ketones, Green Tea and Green Coffee.
METABURN was the one miracle product on the market that combines all three of these amazing ingredients in one pill with the added perk of several other active ingredients.
The active ingredient Sinetrol is a new one on me. It's not as popular as the three main ingredients but there is some good literature out there on how this citrus fruit extract has caused a significant reduction in body fat in actual clinical trials; quite impressive. I'm not sure how exactly it works, but combined with the other three ingredients, METABURN has been super effective.
In the two months that I've been taking METABURN, I've lost almost a stone and a half. I make sure I take METABURN three times a day, go for a walk every single day and try to reduce my meal size too. METABURN really is an amazing product, it feels like it is doing all the hard work for me. I feel better and look better in the mirror with every week that passes and I'm motivated to do even more to lose weight for good.
I have struggled with weight for as long as I can remember. My fiancé and I finally set a date for the wedding which really spurred me into action. Plus I had already found my dream wedding dress and I needed to lose weight fast to look my best for the big day.
I decided to take real action and change my diet and start exercising. I've tried loads of diets before where they force you to starve for most of the day but found that I actually looked ill. So I didn't go on a 'diet' as such but just watched what I ate, making sure I didn't eat more than I needed to feel full and tried to avoid eating too much fried food. My fiancé was a huge help and supported me all the way through my weight loss plan. He is a huge fitness freak, going to the gym at least 5 times a week and helped get me started in the gym too. He designed an exercise regime to suit me which included incline treadmill walking, short bursts of high speed jogging for high intensity and also some light weight to lift. It was actually him that discovered METABURN and recommended that I take it.
So I started taking METABURN everyday and it has been a huge help. Every time I take it, I really feel like it working from the inside to burn more calories and make my body work harder. I started losing weight really quickly and lost the bulk of fat that was sitting on my belly. Before the wedding I managed to drop a couple of dress sizes and managed to fit into my beautiful white wedding dress and actually had to have it taken in a little bit! METABURN is fabulous. I would never have lost all my extra fat fast enough before the wedding day without it. I'd recommend it to everyone, whether you're looking to lose weight quickly for a big day or even if you want to incorporate it into your everyday routine like I now have to keep losing weight slowly.
