“Meal prep is a must for me or I end up standing in the cupboard and freezer all day picking at things that probably aren’t going to do me any favours,” says Elyce.

“If don’t meal plan and do one big shop I end up spending way to much with ‘little’ trips to the shop and I end up buying things I shouldn’t.”

Elyce’s INCREDIBLE 22kg* weight loss story

Not only has Elyce lost an amazing 22kgs through the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and gained a whole heap of confidence.

She says, “I got sick and tired of looking unhappy and fat. I suffer from depression and having that amount of weight hanging off me was not helping my mental state. I did not like what was looking back at me in the mirror and always thought, ‘How could anyone else like that too?’”

Elyce reveals she used to waste money on takeaway, but now she eats what she likes – just healthier versions of it – and meal preps all of her meals and this helps her lose weight.

“I would say eat things that you enjoy and adjust them to make healthier meals. So swap fattier cuts of meat for leaner cuts, white rice, flour and sugar for brown,” she says.

“I replace cream and ice cream with Greek yoghurt and I replace cow’s milk for unsweetened almond milk.

“If you enjoy what you are eating and don’t feel like you are missing out, you will succeed with so much more ease.”
