“Amrit, you are an incredible inspiration, thank you so much for all the support that you’ve given me on this programme. I have been absolutely re-educated by you. I’m now near the end of your programme and now, I feel so much healthier and fitter. I don’t know if I can explain in words, here, how phenomenal your programme has been for me. Many people around me know that I have been struggling and struggling with my lungs, infections and colds. I could not commit to anything in case I was ill. Last year around this time, I tried to do Zumba classes, I could hardly breathe. I couldn’t do a whole class, or even a whole routine. I felt so unfit and unwell. Your healthy eating and fitness programme has given me back to myself. I will remember this day forever! Today, was my breakthrough day. I did a a whole Zumba class, I felt light and I danced and danced! I could breathe again. It was the most freeing and beautiful sensation, I whooped for joy at the end of the class. I was crying with joy and sadness at the same, I felt so happy to have this feeling of freedom and lightness and wellness and yet so sad for myself, that I had let this problem go on for so long. Basically, I was so unfit, it was destroying my health. This is the doorway to a new and better life for me. Thank you Amrit for everything you have done. Xx The Enfield’s Fit page has been a great support on my journey too, it made it so easy to find good classes on the spur of the moment. I love Kevin’s Bokwa classes, Cathy’s Yoga Classes, Kate’s Zumba at The Place Studios and also Maria’s Zumba, at Highlands Village Hall , which I did today, for the first time in ages, today. That’s where my breakthrough happened. I’ll remember this day forever. I just want to say, if you think you haven’t got the time to get fit, or fitter, then I would reply, don’t waste your body and your life, treat yourself well and kindly and then you can truly live your life to the full. All I can say, is Thank you. Xxx”

When she told me about her Skinny Me programme I was keen to try it and even after completing it, I have continued with many of its themes.
“I have just finished the Skinny Me Programme and feel fantastic! Not only have I lost a dress size – I feel energized, healthy and my skin looks better. I had not done any exercise for so long it was tricky to get going at first. It was all well worth it as I have a renewed discipline to keep up with the fitness again. My clothes fit me properly once more and I’m back in my super tight jeans! I’ve learned a lot about my body in the last 30 days and will be continuing to follow a lot of this guidance simply because it works. Highly recommend this programme, thansk for all the support throughout Amrit.” Sukhjit Kaur Gill Dymond, Visual Effects Producer
Before I started this skinny me programme I was spirling out of control and thought I couldnt get out of it, if you told me a month ago that I wouldnt want chocolate I’d never have believed you ever ever ever!! All my cravings have vanished!!! Xx Amrit is always there when you need her. Thanks Amrit you have been AMAZING!!! I actually love you xxxx” Kalia Costa, Freelance Beauty Therapist
“I lost half a stone which was ok and lost a few inches around my stomach and an inch around my hips, and I have definitely noticed my clothes were (and still getting) a lot looser. I can honestly say I feel soooo much better not eating many carbs or dairy and it is easily achievable on a normal veggie diet too. AND …i also think it has done wonders for my scalp. My scalp used to be itchy and dandruffy and unbearable to manage and now i feel i have a normal scalp, i think it is from drastically reducing the carbs and dairy. SO a big thank you to you Amrit.” Raakhi Ladwa, Senior Reward Manager
“I agreed to do SkinnyMe with my husband as I was being supportive …At the start of the 4 weeks I had just completed 6 weeks with my personal trainer, where I was training twice a week with him and twice a week on my own, so I was happy with my body shape, and improved tone all over the abs etc ……at the start of SkinnyMe I was 50kg, at the end I am still 50kg. However, at the week 2 stage I lost 3 kg, and decided that I needed to regain that weight (introduced fats and come carbs) as my butt was not filling my jeans!….. I exercised 3-4 times per week …….. At the end of SkinnyMe I am 50kg, which I am pleased with as I did not want to lose any weight ” Monika Mandal, Consultant
“Stuck with the programme, definately lost weight and inches, as clothes are loose. Eczema has gone so that is fantastic!definitely grateful for the programme and thanks for all the support through the weeks too x” Morven Maciomhar, Graphic Designer
“Ok, the stats are in. 4 weeks in and I’ve lost 10lb in weight, 8cm (3 inches) off my hips and 13cm (5 inches) off my waist! Wish I’d taken a chest measurement as I’m sure my back has toned up too. Looking forward to toning up some more in next few weeks. New recruits, first week is hard; then it just becomes a way of life because you really feel so much better in yourself. Xx” Angela Meade, DPhil, Senior Research Scientist
“I embarked on Amrits Skinny me programme after a very indulgant holiday and was struggling to get rid of the extra weight due to working night and day on setting this group up!! The plan was great, I lost over 1/2 stone in weight and everything is now looser! Rings, trousers, tops! I feel so much better and no where near as toxic and heavy as I did a month ago. Thank you so much for all your support Amirt and to my skinny me girls! You know who you are xx” Emma Rigby, Business Development Manager/Mum/Love Your DoorStep Founder

this last month has helped me back to my pre breast cancer self in motivation, energy & health than anything else in the last post chemo year. The idea of giving a month to yourself to make your body as good as it can be and acquiring some good habits along the way has been really helpful in my recovery. Many thanks to you for this Amrit. Xx ” Marina Palmer, Event Producer/Organiser
“I have lost 7lbs which was pretty much in the first 2 weeks I am sure if I had of stuck to the exercise I could have done more!!! Have def learnt a lot but am also still missing weetabix 🙂 thank you Amrit and everyone x let’s keep sharing the recipes!!! X” Clare Fusedale Dagger
“Before joining the Skinny Me Programme I was quite wary of what it would involve and did have quite a few (and I’m sure quite annoying) talks with Amrit about giving up ‘carbs’ as we know. I was quite unconvinced that I would be able to enjoy food without potatoes, bread and rice but I was desperate to lose weight so finally gave the programme a go!
Having completed the programme, I cannot emphasise enough how glad I am that I joined. I did find the first few days difficult as I was stuck for ideas and initially felt the diet part was a lot stricter than it actually was. Once I started experimenting with Amrit’s lovely and very straightforward and easy recipes did I begin to enjoy the diet side and really felt a lot lighter and energetic.
Trying to cook the Skinny Me way may be difficult for some at first but once you get into the swing of things you don’t want to go back. I must admit that since completeing the programme, I have been eating carbs again but my whole attitude towards food and how much to consume has changed! I have started a new cleaner way of living and am very grateful to Amrit for making this a programme which is easy to follow and adaptable to suit everyone’s lifestyle.
It didn’t feel like a strict diet and after trying other diets where I have had to eat certain things on one day and different things on another or keep track of timings this was an absolute breeze!
Although I didn’t follow the exercises as much as I should have I did find them very do-able and fun! If my friends read this they would think it was someone else writing this!
Overall I suggest anyone should give this a try! You really will change the way you think about food!” Sabrina Shah, Crafty Chefs
