No. I use it for reference and guidance but I practice my own version of balance and clean eating and allow myself a small portion of the week to eat whatever I like. You can read my guidelines for clean eating and what I eat in a week here.

No. I do all my workouts at home in my dining room, or I’m walking outdoors.

Did I breastfeed during this program?
Yes. I was exclusively breastfeeding for the first 8 weeks ( my baby was then nearly 6 months old) I didn’t diet during this time but I tried to eat nutritious food but keep my calories up around 2000 per day and my milk supply was not affected.
How long before I started to see results?
At the end of week 5 was the first time I saw a difference, up until then my waistline seemed to fluctuate every week.
