    Hi there,
    Started yesterday with my journey to getting my body back and need to loose 30kg. Have a few side effects, feeling the dry mouth and high energy levels and have increased my water intake . On day one I felt a bit faint and un easy but carried on , today I was at work and kept on with the water. I had fruit for bf and salad for lunch and normal chick and veg for supper . I am not on a strict calorie counting eating plan but have increased the fruit and veg intake and cut out the junk food and alcohol. If you have any advice or sugestions , please do share as I have not exercised , so does it still work if I do not go to gym? I love the fact that I feel good when I wake up in the morning with this new energy level but its still early days.
    If there is anyone out there that would like to start and share the journey with me I would be greatful....I am detemined to make this work so I can have that to die for body in summer.
    SW 100.00 kg
    GW 70.00 kg

    Will monitor weights weekly and record every Sunday.

    Any advice welcome! Lets do this

    Wishing you the best of luck on your weight loss journey xx
    I'm also interested in hearing if people have dropped big numbers without exercising! I know one of our members, VEE, managed to drop alot of weight with no exercise. But not too sure if that's the norm?? I always hear losing weight is 80% food and 20% exercise.

    Thank you Christine V, im super excited and determined to shed this unwanted weight. I have been on many diets before and hope this one works and that I am able to handle the side effects as it is still early days . I can feel a difference in my body so I will see if I can adjust and maybe add exercise later. Well it certainly does keep you awake, I have been awake since 1am but felt like a slept a full night and it 2h22am now
    Cant wait to see my 1st weeks results.
    Has anyone else done this without exercise?

    I have lost my weight so far through healthy eating and only exercising here and there really. And when I have it has been more for fun rather than must burn calories. So it is possible but I definitely do encourage exercise it definitely helps me when I'm down but will also help tone that body.

    Hi Kayla, thank you , I will try to add some activities so that the weight can drop as I have so much weight to loose. What does your healthy eating consist of ?

    My stats are pretty similar to yours now that I've lost some weight already. I started at 111.6kgs and when I last weighed myself I was 100.5kgs. I am looking to get down to 68 kgs which is what I have been before after losing weight.

    This is what I eat and what I find works for me. I like to have a high protein diet although I'm not super super strict on it like I was when I lost weight a few years ago. I'll save that for when I plateu.

    Breakfast: I have 2 poached eggs and with short cut bacon with fat cutoff (because I don't like it) that is cooked between a price of baking paper on a sandwich press, no oil.
    *I know some people will gasp at my breakfast but it what i used to eat as part of a high protein diet and it works for me*

    Lunch: i have a small serve of chicken and veggies or salad. As i only way chicken sometimes I'll just have a big bowel of veggies if I'm bored of the chicken.

    Afternoon snack: either some fruit or almonds

    Dinner: usually some form of chicken in a wrap or stirfry etc

    I try not to eat after dinner anymore. Sometimes I will treat myself to a low calorie hot chocolate with a biscuit.

    I try to drink at least 2 ltrs of water daily but I've been bad lately.

    The reason I like to follow a high protein diet although it's not that high at the moment as it worked for me in the past and in the past I did of weight lifting to lose the weight so need the protein to help with muscle repair. I used to have additional protein supplements to get my intake level up as I don't eat red meat or fish. In limiting your carb intake especially all processed carbs your body needs to get energy from somewhere else and rhat somewhere else is your fat stores. This is called ketosis.

    I also really encourage weights for females. Your are not going to get big or bulky, we don't have enough testosterone in our bodies what it will do is develop and build muscle to help your burn more calories when recovering from workouts and also when resting. It will help create shape and tone you up and also help fill some skin. I only lifted weights last time with cardio only for warm ups as I hate it and I had an amazing body, we'll I think so anyway. If i can find some photos of how I looked then after losing 20 kgs I'll post them on here if you are interested.

    Update: Feeling rather tired and weak today, I dont feel hungry but I feel the urge to snack and snack all the time... I keep fruit, almonds nuts and bought veggie crisp to nibble on . And increased the water intake . Weight in after braai day was no good , weight went back the the previous day. Dont feel to do anything and too tired to even think... seems like my body use to the pill as I dont have the same energy as on monday.? How long does it take to kick in ... anyone? I have not started exercising so im wondering if it will work?

    Hi I started my duramine 30ml journey yesterday, after dealing with children with disabilities and drug abusing partner for the past 10 years I decided to sell my house and move states, and now that I'm settled I've decided it's time for me to actually concentrate on myself and be the healthy active mum I once was, I currently weigh 94 kilos and am 158cm in height, I'm got little goals to start with so my next goal is to be in the 80s.. Oh and I must mention I've been separated from my partner for nearly 12 months and lost almost 16 kilos and it just stopped.. So fingers crossed guys, and Goodluck to everyone :)
