"I am currently training for my first marathon in April. I had previously lost 3 stone through a slimming club, and have tried everything from 5:2 to low GI to low carb diets to shift the remaining stone, but found that either I felt deprived and got bored, or they just didn’t make any allowance for the amount of running I was doing.
I started working with Tony in November, to lose the remaining weight and work towards my goal of completing my first marathon. As an athlete he completely understands how to lose weight without it negatively affecting my training. In fact it’s only been positive.
The habits based approach works brilliantly for me psychologically – I don’t feel deprived at all, and feel like I can eat what I need when I need to. I have so far dropped 10lbs, but more importantly I have dropped body fat percentage and inches, and increased my lean muscle mass. I don’t feel like I’m on a diet, I don’t in any way feel deprived, for the first time I feel like I have a more healthy attitude towards food and body image, and my training has been going from strength to strength. On Sunday I knocked 5 minutes off my 10 mile personal best, and I’m sure that is a direct result of being 10lbs lighter and a lot fitter.
I can’t recommend Tony or this approach to nutrition and training highly enough, whether your goal is to complete a marathon or just lose weight."
