I have always been a big fan of food. My father is a chef, so I have always been surrounded by lovely foods. I have never really been a huge fan of dieting, so the Yan Plan seemed perfect and the great results I have seen by friends and family I had to give it a go. After being in contact with Yan I started a ten week plan, although based in London this was not an issue, with weekly Skype calls with him and support via email and by phone while also receiving exciting recipes via email, throughout the whole process Yan was very supportive. During my second week of the ten week plan I had to undergo surgery and was off work for six weeks – so exercise was out of the question. So for the first 8 weeks I was purely following the food direction, eating regularly and often. It was great, by following this eating pattern I was never hungry or craving anything naughty – I was eating the right things at the right time. By doing this my energy levels were through the roof, being a student we love our sleep but there was no need for a sneaky afternoon snooze. I was bit skeptical that if I wasn’t doing any exercise would I actually loose any weight? However I lost 25lbs! Just under two stone with no exercise what so ever! I wouldn’t say that The Yan Plan is a diet, it’s a lifestyle choice and I am definitely a changed person – pasta and breads were a staple in my diet which obviously isn’t great for the waistline and after my ten week plan he has changed my health, wellbeing and outlook on food for ever.

His ‘Yan Plan’ is a dietary and fitness regime which dispels a lot of myths about what you can and can’t do or eat. If you are interested in finding out more about the ‘Yan Plan’ you can find him on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Yan-Plan/187403324649593?fref=ts or visit his website here www.theyanplan.co.uk

Hairy Dieters


The fabulous Hairy Bikers, Simon King and Dave Myers embark on a new journey and weight loss campaign; Hairy Dieters. In this series they have accepted their overindulgence over the years and are determined to ‘still love their food and lose weight’. Their aim to reinvent the classic dishes they love, making them big on flavour but low in calories. With the power of group motivation, they have joined forces with a group of similarly rotund foodies to help test out the bikers recipes.

So with their great tasting food and smart cooking, I am looking forward to seeing more of this series and perhaps stealing some of the lovely recipes. The series started on Thursday where the Hairy Bikers began to eat themselves slim in a bid to lose two and a half stone in three months.

Appy Days..


ShopStyle has to be the best app i’ve downloaded recently; housing all the stores you love in one place.
ShopStyle brings together the most fashionable stores and the best designer brands. You can shop the latest styles within not only clothing, but home, lifestyle and children’s ware from over 300 retailers ranging from Net-a-Porter to ASOS and Topshop, so there really is something for everyone, and my favourite aspect of the app while browsing through products on the app, simply hit the ‘Sale Alert’ button and you will receive notifications of when the items are on sale, so you can get first dibs.
