I have just finished week 5 of the Real Meal Revolution – Beginner Banting Course and have reached the end of the course. If you would like to read up on the other 4 weeks, please click here – week 1, week 2, week 3 and week 4.
I have to start of by saying that I have learnt so much in the 5 weeks and that I feel so very privileged to have been able to take part in such an amazing course. Before I give you a summary of my results, let’s first chat about what week 5 offers.
Week 5 is the final week of the course. The focus of this week is to support you if you have reached a plateau (that stage you may reach when you don’t seem to loose any more weight). This gets beautifully explained in the videos and Sally-Ann gives amazing tips on how to get through this stage and to kick start your weight loss again.
To summarize – there are 4 compulsory video lessons and 9 cooking demonstrations to watch in week 5. Over and above the compulsory videos there are lots of text notes and additional videos you can also watch if you like. Once you are finished watching the videos, you have to complete the quiz. This will give you a good idea how much you understand from the lessons.
The final results?
I lost 5kg in total and I lost 7cm around my waistline! I couldn’t be more thrilled! Besides the weight loss I have also experienced many other benefits:
- I have so much more energy!
- I have less cravings, because my blood sugar is far more stable! This is a big one, since the cravings are usually what gets me to loose control and then ultimately fail.
- I’m feeling far less hungry this week. This is another great aspect of banting, since your blood sugar is stable you can go without food for longer.
- I am less bloated and my water retention seems to have disappeared.
- Finally, my skin is looking clearer and my breakouts are under control!
My final thoughts about the course!
I am so thankful to have been able to take part in this course. Not only have I seen amazing results, but I have learnt so much and I feel confident that I can successfully continue with this healthy lifestyle going forward. The highlights of the course for me were the amazing video lessons from Sally-Ann Creed and Prof. Tim Noakes. I also thoroughly enjoyed the cooking demonstrations from Jonno Proudfoot and feel like a chef in my own kitchen now! Another highlight of this course were the incredible support I received form the certified instructor. All in all, I would highly recommend this course to anyone that wants to live a healthier lifestyle.
