In March I received a three month voucher, as a present from my family, to come and meet you and to learn about diet with a view to losing weight. I came along to your home where you made me feel relaxed about the whole idea. I have tried various diets but the one to one aspect of your programme suited me very well.
The initial session, which was a presentation of how you wanted to help me and the introduction to the zest4life programme was very clear and set me on my way. I was weighed and we discussed what the way forward for me. I came away feeling I had new information, like the importance of protein, which I was going to take on board. At my age, 69, you think you've tried everything and know everything there is about dieting, but no, Linda's programme showed me a new way.
I attended four sessions and had contact through the telephone and e-mails. I lost over a stone and have taken on a new lifestyle, my choice, for eating sensibly. I had to change bad habits and find ways to eat which fitted in with my timetable. This was not always easy to work round, but with Linda's help I have found a way.
I would recommend this programme to you if you have a problem with weight or just want to learn about healthy eating. The thing that stood out for me was that I liked the diet! I actually really enjoyed the recommended foods and to learn about diet too was such a bonus.
