"Well here I am, six months after starting Living Lean. I am 23 kilos lighter, 5 dress sizes smaller, 4 bra cup sizes smaller, 10 kilos of organ (visceral) fat lighter, bright eyed, clear head, zero headaches, crazy amounts of muscle tone I never had before and boundless energy every day."

Faith 42, from Sydney

"I was sceptical to begin with but once I started and saw the weight virtually fall off me I knew everything I had learnt on the Living Lean program is 100% accurate. I have had so many people commenting on my appearance and new look. I only wish I’d found this 10 years earlier."
