Martinette now consumes around 1,200 calories a day. She said: “About a month into my diet I introduced other food.
“For example, I’d take an Exante soup and make it into a flatbread dish by adding zero fat yoghurt, avocado, and tomato too.
“Now, I mostly try to eat healthy meals which are high in protein and low in carbs, but I don’t beat myself up if I have a juicy burger or treats every now and then. If I feel like I’m plateauing, I’ll incorporate more Exante meal replacements into my diet.”
As for exercise, Martinette “joined Wapping Running Club, which really helped me to stay motivated, because people would compliment me on my weight loss and help me to be consistent with my exercise”.
