After YEARS of trying various well-known commercial diet programmes, an NHS programme, getting a PT and dealing with injuries alongside mental health problems, I found myself throughout lockdown the heaviest I've ever been. I had followed Diren for a while and was dubious about how a coach could help me when he's online and we've never met. But Diren took me seriously from day one and told me the kinds of things I could do with his support, the most important thing being his accountability. So I signed up.
8 weeks later and I have now begun my long weight loss journey. -11lb down and -35cm. I have a long way to go and have signed up to the next project X. Diren holds you accountable but also works with you to challenge your mindset and to give up the all or nothing attitude that so often causes us to fall off the wagon and never try again. The workout videos that he shares with us are great (as are the recipes!) but the best thing is the interaction with him. Diren always replies to any emails that you send him with genuine advice and support, and if you ask him to give you a boot up the butt for motivation he will do that too. The check-in and Q&A twice per week are great to listen to others but you get the most out of it if you ask questions and get involved yourself. Don't be start struck or shy - Diren is down to earth and wants his clients to get results.
After years of searching I've found that I had the tools that I needed all along - what I needed was a coach like Diren to unlock that knowledge, push and motivate me and encourage me whilst at the same time not cutting me slack and allowing me to give up on myself. His message of consistency and accountability is strangely not something that is seen elsewhere but is so important to get results. There is success in simplicity, and Diren makes it as simple as possible for his clients - if you follow his guidance, you will get results. No two ways about it.
I'm now more active than I was, making better choices with food and seeing this as a journey to better health, improved strength and better mindset. This is no quick fix and you only get out what you put in. Having someone like Diren by your side to guide you is just what the doctor ordered!
