How You Can Lose Weight By This Natural Drink
London based lawyer, Samira Khan has shared with the Express.co.uk how she managed to transform her life at the age of 46.
Inspired by Jennifer Lopez on a magazine cover, Samira decided to change her exercise and eating habits.
She said: “I had tried everything. I tried dieting, eating healthy, going to the gym, and drinking smoothies. I also followed the trend of drinking meal replacements for lunch and breakfast or even skipping lunch, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t lose the weight.
“Being British Asian… I never saw any successful female gym personalities with Asian ethnic backgrounds. Growing up I didn’t have any Asian role models to look up to either. Asian families focused more on academics, then counting carbs and calories.
“And being a size 14 didn’t help. Shopping for clothes was a nightmare…Besides, I never looked good in anything. I was overweight, my body felt heavy and tired, and I couldn’t run for more than 15 minutes, as my knees started hurting. At the time, I didn’t know how I let myself go.”
Samira spent between 12 and 16 hours a day at the office and worked weekends too. This meant it was easier for her to grab lunch and dinner on the go rather than making it at home.
She explained: “I realized I needed a big change…It’s so easy to have that takeaway after work, but waking up at 4:30 am, seven days a week, pre-planning your meals and eating healthy, staying away from processed foods, carbs, and sugars every day is something entirely else.
Samira explains how she thought about contacting her local gym for a personal trainer but had one previously and didn’t see much of a result. via express co uk
