In this new year, as a personal trainer I have many clients working with me trying to lose weight and shape up and as I am always telling my clients it is more about the diet than the exercise.
A few of my clients have worked with Jane Michell of JanePlan in order to address their weight loss and nutrition and inparticular one client even had success during the christmas break!
So, although I can ill afford to lose any weight myself, as “there is nothing of me” according to some of my clients, I thought I would try a week of the JanePlan way myself so I could honestly share my opinion with my clients.
The idea behind JanePlan is that you have a detailed telephone consultation before you start and then a few days later, hey presto, your food for the month turns up at your door. What you receive is based on your answers to the questions during the phone consultation, and you then get another call on the first day of your plan.
So, I have duly had my consultation and my welcome call on Tuesday morning and off I went, with Porridge for breakfast, Tuna salad for lunch and chicken and vegetables for dinner. As I am doing this for the experience and not to lose weight I have been adding in lots of fruit, nuts, and veg etc to keep my energy levels up.
I have also decided to increase my exercise for this week, whilst I am following JanePlan; 2 days in and 2 workouts!
So, I have to say that I am really enjoying the experiment so far! It has focussed me on my food and nutrition and made me exercise more regularly than I might otherwise do. My wife and I are very happy that we don’t have to worry about an evening meal for me for a whole week! (Yes, we share the cooking folks!) and I don’t have to think about preparing my lunch each day or try to be as healthy as possible with my shop-bought lunch.
I will let you know how I have fared at the end of the week………….
