Maria’s amazing meal prep
You don’t have to clear a day to do meal prep, if you just don’t have the time. Maria was able to prep on and off over a weekend.
“I extended my prep over the weekend as it was the only way I could fit it in,” she says. “So I took my time and done some each day. Most of them didn’t take long especially the snacks.”

Maria’s weight loss story
Maria, 30, is based in Hertfordshire and has lost 3 stone following the Challenge.
“I no longer suffer from night sweats and have slightly less daily pain as I have less weight to carry around,” she says.
“Mentally, I have learnt to love myself not judge myself or hate how I look but keep working at the changes. I also noticed how much more variety I eat in foods and not restricting myself, learnt to balance my food healthily.”
