Ultima client loses 50kg in 9 months.
Ultima client Erica Carstens of Cape Town shares her story on how she lost 50kg in 9 months with the assistance of our Ultima1 product, read her story below:
I started taking Ultima 1 on 23rd February 2013 as I was so tired of being big and always buying a size 16! My goal was to lose 50kg and to go from a size 16 to a size 10.
I replaced my breakfast and lunch with the Ultima 1 shake mixed with 200ml of fat free milk & 2 ice cubes. I made a habit of drinking 2 litres of water a day, and also had a glass of water half an hour before my dinner which normally consisted of either grilled fish or chicken with white and green veggies or a green salad. Once a week I would have 2 boiled eggs with a green salad.
If I was hungry in between I would snack on an apple and raw almonds.
The first two weeks were difficult, but I had made up my mind to give it my best shot. I weighed myself once a week in the morning when I got up. The first month I had lost 12.5kg!
Three months into the diet I started mixing my shake with water & 2 ice cubes, instead of milk.
It took me 9 months to reach my goal and I now feel so good about myself. I feel confident and can go to any shop and buy clothes! Never before could I imagine myself buying an item in a small size!
I recently started with some exercise to tone my body a bit, but the most important thing is my mind set. I have started a new way of life and decided to exclude rice/pasta/bread and potatoes from my diet.
Going forward now I still have my Ultima 1 shake in the morning, fruit for lunch and pretty much the same dinners.
I love my life now – I have energy and I have maintained my weight for 3 months.
Ultima 1 is the way forward and will be my way of eating for the future.
