LeAnn attributes her weight gain to a very active social life and the eating and drinking that involved. With the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet and support from our dietitians, LeAnn learnt how to keep her social life while eating healthily - and losing 20kg in the process*!
*In 6 months. Individual results may vary.
"I turned 40 and life started to throw too many curve balls. As many people do I used bad food to get through the hard times. When life got better I surrounded myself with people who like to socialise, eating out too much, overeating and drinking far too much."
"My weight has been an issue my entire life. I’ve been a yoyo dieter but have managed to stay at the most 73kg - but then I hit my 40’s! 14 weeks ago I stepped on the scales and saw my weight was almost 90kg - I had to do something."
"I was feeling bad and ashamed about myself. I had been working with a personal training for a good 7 months but I was getting bigger purely because of my diet."
"I would drink every night - 2-3 glasses of wine - and more if I was with friends. Hot chip at the pub and fatty foods. Even when I was eating good food it was just far too much."
"I work in the medical field and my job is all about clinical outcomes. Because the Total Wellbeing Diet is research-based with strong clinical evidence to support the diet, I know that if I followed the diet I would be successful."
"I eat less and choose better my enjoyable food. I drink less. I continue to train with my trainer but at a higher intensity."
"I’m going to continue on the weight loss campaign. Once I get to the weight I feel happiest at, I'll never let myself move too far from it again!"
"When I signed up, I thought having the help from a qualified professional would encourage me to complete the diet successfully and guide me to get the best results from the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet."
"Where I truly benefited was long-term knowledge I gained from talking to my dietitian. The information she gave me helped me better understand weight gain and weight loss."
"My dietitian helped me understand the Total Wellbeing Diet and made me comfortable with the options available on how to best make the diet work for me and my lifestyle. We had a great discussion in one of the sessions around the myths around certain food and making better choices."
