My name is Chanden. I used to be sick and tired of being fat and super depressed about it. So I decided to do something.
On the 13th March 2015 I embarked on a weight loss programme called the Cambridge Weight Plan (Step 2) and to date (16 July 2015) I have lost 70lb and gained a bundle of confidence. I’ve still got a long way to go, but the last few months have got me thinking about my mind set and my attitude and approach to a healthy lifestyle.
This picture shows me at my 30th birthday party at the start of the year and then me about to go shopping 10 weeks after starting this plan.
My weight loss plan replaces meals with shakes and bars except for my one evening meal. I have an allowance of protein and vegetables and I use herbs and spices to make this one small meal super special and delicious. The meals I have shared have received a lot of positive feedback so I wanted to create a space where I could post these recipes and answer any questions about them or cooking in general.
The weight loss isn’t purely diet related- it is a lot of mind over matter at times, and so I’d also like to use this site to start a dialogue about wellbeing and being holistic in the approach to weight loss. I sincerely hope you enjoy the recipes and content that I post and welcome comments and suggestions for topics to write about.
