My name is Jean-Paul Röscher. I started my journey to my new self in August 2014 last year and to date I have lost 30kgs.
I was very overweight and an obsessive eater. My weakness was coca cola. I polished a 2litre a day. I tried protein diets and lost rapidly in the first week but would then pick it up so quickly again. My brother is a physio and stays in Durban so I don’t see him often. I spoke to him in August and he told me that him and his wife started banting in June and they had amazing results and suggested that I try it out. The very next day I purchased the Real Meal Revolution book and it changed me completely.
I thought that dropping the sugar would be the hardest part for me but it wasn’t. I found that going cold turkey on the sugars and carbs was the best thing to do. My mindset was right because I could not face myself in the mirror anymore and what also made it easier was that my wife is on the journey with me. To date she has lost 18kgs and still going strong.
In my first week I dropped 4.5kgs and that motivated me even more to pull through and stay strong. As the weeks past it got easier and easier and now it will be my lifestyle.
I actually found out that my diet was boring and very repetitive where now my food choices are exciting and actually fun to make. I can talk about yummy food for hours and not get hungry.
When I started banting my pants size was a 44 and now I am on a 36. Shirts size was 4xl and now xl. Around my waist I have lost 27cm’s.
I have motivated a lot of my friends and colleagues at work to start looking at what they put in their body.
Hope in the future I can motivated more people!
