LORNA LOSES A STONE WITH REVITALISE SILVER

LORNA

Lorna started the New Year with a goal in mind to become healther and fitter and that’s exactly what she is doing! Lorna had been attending Pilates classes in Northaw.

Just over halfway through the Revitalise Silver programme and Lorna has lost a stone!

To increase her fitness Lorna has taken on new exercise classes and now attends the Revitalise workout class on a Tuesday at 7pm in Goffs Oak.

Lorna’s words:

I am really pleased with everything so far, the meals and the weight loss. Loving some of the recipes and I’ve not really been one for cooking either but I’m enjoying experimenting with food. I can certainly seeiing the benefits and it is working really well for me.

I would recommend it to anyone, like any healthy lifestyle programme you HAVE to be really disciplined and focused with it to make it work with the outcome you want.

I have to admit I do find the Revitalise class more challenging than the Pilates classes I attend, however I know that I am going to feel better afterwards.  I feel that I am becoming more flexible from doing the exercises and toning up, plus it is helping with my weight loss.  Again you have to plan this into the week and know that on certain nights you need to be committed to it for it to work effectively.

For my family life,  everyone has their own agenda, however when I cook my meals I do it in bulk, everyone else is keen to try them so they are also participating in the new healthier meals I am using for myself. They have enjoyed all the dishes I have prepared which means I can continue to make them, then it will be easier for all of us.  Everyone in my family has been really supportive and I am showing them how they can also improve their lifestyle.

Being part of the online Revitalise community you feel like you have got more support. The recipes are really useful and also I have learnt a lot from the research information offered. Davina has been giving weekly feedback and suggestions all the way through the programme with a huge amount of praise and encouragement which keeps the motivation and willpower going.  

I will stick to the liquid chlorophyll plus investigate some other options to help with my new healthy lifestyle. I feel this has become a new lifestyle for me and I will definitely continue with the program during the week days as it helps with my working day.  

The Revitalise programm has helped me get into a much better routine than before. I would also like lose a little more weight say another half a stone, if possible. I think until you have personally tried something yourself you cannot assume or speculate. For the best results you have to be 100% committed to the plan for it to work.

If you would like to know more about the Revitalise programme then do not hesitate to contact Davina.

 

NUTRITIOUS SOUP

IMG_0669

This soup I found in one of Patrick Holford’s books.

Patrick designed this soup to help his wife get over a virus.  It is now a renowned health tonic by his readers!  It is incredibly rich in vitamin E and beta-carotine as well as anti-inflamatories from onion, garlic, ginger and tumeric.  The coconut milk is a saturated fat which is not stored as fat in the body but used as energy.

I like it because it is very quick to cook and extremely nutritious!

I changed this recipe slightly by adding a whole chilli to give it an extra kick and speed up the metabolism.   Adding red lentils to give it that extra protein.  You could add chicken too. Adding courgette because I had one to use in the fridge.   Soups are always a good way to use up any vegetables you may have.

Serves 2-3

1 tbsp coconut oil or olive oil

½ red onion, roughly chopped

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 large carrot or 2 small-mediums ones, peeled and chopped

1 large sweet potato or 2 small-mediums ones, peeled and chopped to the same size as the carrot to ensure even cooking

1 heaped tsp grated fresh root ginger

¼ tsp turmeric

2 tsp Marigold reduced salt vegetable bouillion powder

1 red pepper, diced

75ml (2 fl oz) coconut milk

1.    Heat oil in pan and gently sauté onion and garlic for a few minutes.

2.    Add carrot, sweet potato, ginger, turmeric and bouillon powder and just  cover with boiling water and bring to the boil.

3.     Cover and simmer for 15 minutes

4.    Add red pepper and coconut milk, then blend until smooth.

This recipe is one of many that can be found in my 6 week online diet and tone programme.

Hi Davina,

Great menus and the flavouring on my food now is very tasty making you want to cook healthy food, plan your week so when you are busy you can still eat healthy which is when you need more energy too. Everyone should do this course look how fit and healthy Davina is you don’t even have to diet just eat healthy and the weight will naturally come off great start to 2013 . Thank you Davina xx
