Will this help me lose weight?
100%. You'll get everything you need to SHIFT weight, plus you’ll look and feel amazing too if you embrace the challenge and are consistent.
How much weight will I lose?
Everyone is different, so this can vary, and you have to be realistic too. Trying to lose 2 stone in one month is not realistic and dangerous. To be in line the with healthy guidelines you should be aiming to lose 1-2lbs a week in line with the calorie deficits I have created. This will also help prevent malnutrition.
How do I know how much weight I should be aiming to lose?
A good indicator to use is calculating your BMI (Body Mass Index) and comparing this to the healthy weight range *below.
Formula: weight in KG divided by your height in metres, once you have this total divide by your height in metres again = BMI.
EG: James is 85kg (13.38 stone) and 1.8 metres tall (5ft 11).
BMI Calculation: 85 / 1.8 = 47.22 / 1.8 = 26.23
James’s BMI shows he is currently in the overweight range (26.23 overweight) *below.
James wants to lose 1 stone (6.35 KG or 14lbs) and get down to below 12 and a half stone.
Let’s see if this amount of weight falls into the healthy weight range.
85 KG – 6.35 KG = 78.65 KG is 12.38 stone
78.65 / 1.8 = 43.69 / 1.8 = 24.27
We can see 24.27 falls in to healthy weight range zone below. This is a realistic weight loss goal over a suitable time frame.
*KEY: Body Mass Index (BMI)
Under weight: a BMI of up to 18.4
Healthy weight: a BMI of up to 18.5 – 24.9
Over weight: a BMI of 25 – 29.9
Obese: a BMI of 30 – 39.9
Morbidly obese: a BMI of 40 or more
Why do I get 2 days before the challenge starts?
To get familiar with the course and get the resources you need to get the best results (food scales & recipes ingredients etc) before the training workouts countdown kicks in. But you could probably go through the course in around an hour or so.
When is the best time to join?
The workouts UNLOCK 2 days after you join so I recommend you join on a Saturday for them to release on the Monday and daily there-after. Personally I find it easy to keep track this way but you can join whenever you are ready too.
You get access to the introduction sections 1 to 4 as soon as you join so you can get familiar with how the challenge works, along with the recipes / ingredediants you'll need.
Why is it a countdown?
To prevent overwhelm and the Netflix effect... information overload. So after the 2 days of getting familiar with the course the workouts unlock (on day 28) and release on a daily basis thereafter. You can complete your first fitness test on day 29.
How long do I get access for?
It is a 30-Day Challenge so you have a total of 30 days to challenge yourself, be held accountable and implement. Failing and putting things off until next Monday or the week after next is no longer an option, so you actually get real results in as little as 30 days.
Why is this different to other challenges?
We don't just give you the training plans, nutritional protocols and then watch you struggle. Our aim is to have the biggest success rate of people getting in shape. We will show you exactly how to get in shape and keep yourself accountable so you never fail. Each week has different workouts to put you through your paces and keep you moving forwards. Plus, you'll have accountability check ins (Start of Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4 and your final day), a fitness test at the start and at the end to see how far you have come, your daily non negotiables, enough delicious recipes/snacks and meal planners... so failing is no longer an option. Plus, a bonus challenge waiting for you at the end too!
Can my partner do the challenge too?
Yes. The beauty about the 30-Day Fat Loss Challenge is we have both men and woman's. Both challenges / recipes are the same for simplicity so you can work together and support each other. However, the calorie deficits differ so although the recipes / ingredients content is the same, the actual portion sizes / measurements vary to prevent malnutrition and to ensure you have the suitable deficits to lose weight.

FAQS - NUTRITION
Do I need any special foods?
No... I have provided enough delicious recipes and snacks, along with meal planners for you to follow and enjoy.
What if I can't find some ingredients?
You should be able to get all the ingredients (foods) required in most of your local supermarkets. Ask for assistance, or depending on the time of season if you can’t find an ingredient simply swap it with an alternative with similar calories. EG: fingerling potatoes, swap for Jersey Royals or small / baby potatoes.
How many recipes & snacks is there?
I have purposely kept things super simple so you have enough variety of well balanced recipes and snacks to prevent overwhelm making your life easy for you.
Can I eat other foods not on the plan?
Yes, you can mix things up if you wish, but remember to stay within the calorie deficits as stipulated in the recipes book here in the how it works area (page 3). My suggestion is to stick to the plan as all the calorie deficits have already been worked out for you.
The Rainbow Rule – All the recipes are colour coded and done in a way so you get a good variety of foods / nutrients. If you want to change a recipe on the planners, simply swap it with another one from the same colours - trying and stick to the rainbow rule.
For example, if it’s a blue recipe meal (Fish) simply swap it with another blue (Fish) recipe. Once swapped check the calorie contents is similar, if they differ greatly i.e. it’s a lot higher then manipulate the amount of snacks you have (for example reduce by 1 or 2) so you remain within daily calorie parameters.
Are there meal planners and done for you shopping list?
Yes, so it’s really easy to follow and to help save you time and money. There are blank ones you can use too if you decide to mix things up.
Why do you use the same recipes in week 1 and 3 and week 2 and 4?
This is to make life really easy, after you have completed week 1 & 2 you will be familiar with the recipes along with the ingredients. So when you shop again its easier plus you may have some saved over ingredients which you can store to be used again saving you time and money.
Do I have to weigh out the foods with food scales?
Yes, to get the best results portion control is important... this could be the one thing holding you back. All the content sizes for the recipes ingredients are mentioned in the recipes book. Remember... "What Gets Measured Gets Managed".
Do I need any special equipment?
No... you will need some bog standard equipment which most people have. Food scales to measure out the ingredients, a blender for the super quick smoothies and a food processor for the delicious snack balls.
Are the recipes the same in your digital "Healthy Meals In Half The Time" collection?
No, all the recipes in the 30-Day Fat Loss Challenge are different and cannot be purchased anywhere else.
Do you have a vegetarian plan 30-Day Fat Loss Challenge?
Not at this time.
