“Follow the plan and you’ll get the results you want”

Seb, 32, from Essex, used New Body Plan to ditch his belly and build and action hero physique in just 12 weeks

I’d really let myself go and I wanted a proper programme to follow. I was overweight and I had put on a serious gut from drinking and eating rubbish – and a gut is the hardest to shift. You may not have looked at me and thought I was really out of shape but I felt really sluggish, really demotivated. I wasn’t sleeping well, I wasn’t eating well. And then you look in the mirror and you’re not happy and you know something has to change. 

The diet side is a huge part of a transformation. There’s no point smashing out the sessions and going home and pigging out. I used to eat what I wanted. It wasn’t anything crazy but it was chocolate or ice cream or a few beers. You say to yourself it’s only a few here or there but it does add up. So when you take them out of your diet or you minimise them, you notice the difference. 

I was actually surprised by the foods, like burgers and curries, that were in the diet. I say diet, it’s not a diet. It’s just nutrition. It’s just eating. So I was never starving myself and I was enjoying eating the foods that I was eating. It wasn’t at all restrictive. It was just the right foods to complement the plan. 

A few of my friends and family asked me, how are you finding the food side of things? And I said, I’m eating foods that I like and I’m not hungry. So any mental challenge that you might expect with the food side of things, that was just eradicated.

I was just an ordinary guy following a plan. I said to myself, if I’m going to get a result I need to be all in. And you need to be honest with yourself. If you finish a session and you think, “I haven’t given that my all”, you need that self-check and you need to motivate yourself to push on. If you really want it then it’s quite a simple process. You follow the programme, you give 100% and you’ll get the results that you’re looking for.
