My name is Cathryn and I have been training with Inge for 5 years. I would like to share my weight loss and fitness experience with you.

I had been complaining to Inge regarding my muscle wastage, gut issues with the likes of bloating, constipation and reaction to certain foods, plus the fact that I couldn’t lose weight no matter how little I ate. Inge kindly organised an introduction to Dr Shirley Alexander who in turn initiated her weight loss program with me. Although sceptical at first this way of eating and exercising allowed me to lose 7 kgs in 8 weeks which has transformed my stomach problems. I am still working on muscle gain.

It has not been without its ups and downs. However, I can say that I was never really hungry. I am a vegetarian so it proved a little more difficult to eat the required amount of protein needed. But it can be done.

It made me realise just how much fruit and bread I was eating. It was also frustrating when you were so diligent with food intake but plateaued and remained the same weight for long periods. However with encouragement from Inge, who consistently measured me, the difference was that I had dropped two dress sizes.

The program is quite easy to follow once you get into the routine and become familiar with food quantities. My protein sources are fish and cheese but for meat eaters it can be quite varied.

I am on the maintenance part of this program now, which allows more carbs in the form of fruit and bread per day, plus the occasional tipple, and feel so much stronger and healthier.
