Fast Diet Weight Loss - Before and After
We do not often post before and after photos but when Monique sent hers to us we felt her pictures were a good demonstration of how the R.T.F. Diet proportions...Thank you Monique for your permission to use these.
Monique Steven - Roodeport
Age : 34
Weight Loss : 9.9 Kgs.
I joined the Younique* weightloss programme as I wanted to lose a few extra kg's that I had gained during the course of the year and was just battling to get rid of, I wanted something that would work quickly and be sustainable, someone I knew had very successfully lost weight on Younique* and kept it off so I decided it was the way to go.
My results were quite rapid and it was very motivational to see my weight dropping on almost a daily basis. Whilst I found Phase 2 very challenging due to the amounts of physical exercise I was doing, the motivation of the daily losses kept me going as did Vivienne's unwavering support, there were times that I was ready to give up but Vivienne very tactfully kept me on track. Initially, I was concerned that the support might be an issue with me being based in Jo-burg and the support being provided remotely from Durban, however the support was excellent, Vivienne was very responsive and very quickly responded to SMS'S and e-mails.
In four weeks I am within 1kg of my ideal weight (something which I had actually given up as unachievable quite a few years ago). All I have wanted to achieve from a weight loss perspective, is to shamelessly wear a pair of shorts in the summer. I think I have achieved that already and not only that, I might even be able to shamelessly wear a bikini this summer. I am thrilled with the results!
Mr. Ahmed Desai - Stanger
Weightloss : 12.1kg
Testimonial: "Overall the program helped reduce cravings and minimized my shoulder and lower back pains, which I suffered from. I use to suffer tremendously with Lower back pains due to a disk bulge, two weeks into the program and the pain began easing off. Six weeks into the program and the pain is down almost to 90%.
A Big Thank You - Vivienne"
Mrs. Laveshnee Singh - Phoenix
Weightloss : 10.45kg
Testimonial : " The program has assisted with the excess weight I had 'weighing' me down but also came in as an added bonus the amazing vibrancy and energy I now have after re-setting my body and detoxing.
Be Strict and stick with it, it pays off in the end. It is a challenge, teaches discipline and shows that most didn't realise weight gain wasn't the only problem, the body, energy, mind suffers from bad eating habits.
I started the program with my main concern being weight loss, but was lucky enough to walk into the right place where concern is not just about the weight but its also a way of life, lifestyle change that concentrates on a person well-being holistically. Once fully emerged in it, does one realise the great benefits. The weight loss is a bonus. It leaves you with a truly refreshed, energized feeling with a new zest for life. It is tough for a person with no discipline in their diet; but once you get the hang of it, it comes as second nature, it is as it says, "YOUNIQUE" "
Mrs. Raffaella Kent - Glenashley
Weightloss : 7.75kg
Testimonial: "Impacted most positively from a health/well being perspective. I use to suffer from headaches, fatigue and dizziness most days, since this program, those are ailments of the past. Amazing.
Highly recommend this program but cannot stress enough to them the element of dedication, commitment, discipline and self-control you need. Its great coming out at the other end of 8 weeks and seeing the results that one has reaped a result of "keeping it together and staying focused.
Truly is one of a kind. I have never experienced anything like this and more importantly results like this.
Where do I begin? Thank You Vivienne for this new chapter in my life. It feels wonderful and I didn't think I would achieve these results. Thank you for your encouragement and support throughout. We wouldn't be able to cope without you and all the advice, knowledge and nurturing that you provide. At times it was difficult to stay focused but you helped with that too. Meals were very easy to prepare and delicious to eat on phase 2. Phase 3 is definitely like Christmas but still learning what affects weight gain/loss due to the freedom. Hope I will be able to maintain with time. Cravings have definitely subsided although now and then I dream of chocolate or a nice drink, but it's not serious. I remind myself of how I feel and how I got here and I get over the "desire" of having the "not allowed" at this stage.
Thank you so much for sharing this program with us It has certainly changed my life, my health and given me confidence, which I have always lacked. At 45 I had accepted that trying to lose weight and feel good and it was not going to happen, until YouNique. Thank You!"
Mrs. Renee Bishop - Durban North
Testimonial:" First time in 10 year off the "Happy Pills" as a result of feeling in control. Headaches, fuzzy head, sinus, chest infections cleared. YouNique diet is just that - Unique.
The fun thing was having to put on weight to start diet and then that exercise was not necessary, in fact not allowed in Phase 2 - The daily losses were so encouraging and having daily interaction with Vivienne felt like having a knowledgeable friend on hand - always helpful."
Mrs. Roz McCarthy - Durban
Testimonial: " Realised how toxic my diet was, prior to YouNique and you need to commit but the rewards are high.
My indigestion, which I suffered from daily, disappeared. I didn't realize I could live without sugar and alcohol but surprisingly did. It completely changed my outlook."
Miss. Zelda Bolace - Durban
Testimonial:" Positively impacted all areas of my life, especially health. Do It!! Every step you take is a challenge, Vivienne provides amazing support and guides you every step of the way.
Going into this program was a little nerve wrecking, as I never attempted this before. I always thought "I could do it myself" ... I was wrong. Vivienne has taught me so much, not just during the program but how to implement this way of living into my everyday life. The journey is worth it."
Mr. Devon Palanee - Yellowwood Park
Weightloss : 20.1Kg
Testimonial:" Diet Program - only positive, very easy to follow. Results on a daily basis, always positive - confidence boost - miraculous weight loss with minimum effort. Do it, you will always regret why you didn't do it sooner."
Name: Mrs. Farhnaaz Jogee - Durban
Weightloss : 12.35kg
Testimonial:" Firstly I joined this program because I was confident it worked, as a few of my friends had excelled on the program. I made a conscious decision to join and make it work, and 11kgs later YouNique changed my life. It's the only program that worked for my body and me. I have learned a lot about my health and most importantly about myself. Thank you. It's an experience everyone should try.
The only advice I would give is, have a strong will power, change your mindset and be discipline. Thereafter it's a walk in the park. Sit back and watch the kilos literally shed.
The whole YouNique weight loss experience has been amazing. I'm very satisfied and glad I embarked on this weight loss journey. YouNique has changed my lifestyle positively. Onwards and Upwards. My journey has been successful.
Thank You Viv, you are a Super Star."
Mrs. Keseri Harinarain - Durban North
Weightloss : 7.1kg
Testimonial:" I need to lose weight because everything I tried like gym and Pilates didn't help in my weight loss due to my spinal op. I need to lose my tummy so that there is no pressure on my spine. And I achieved that. Thanks a lot. This program is something you must want to do for yourself or else it won't work. Stick to it and you will love the results.
The beginning it is hard, but once you start to prepare yourself and use your imagination. Food is divine. It is a goal you have to try and achieve. You don't just lose weight but cm too. Nothing is impossible. The word I..m..Possible."

Mr. Mithan Paparam - Durban
KG Lost: 13.65
Testimonial:" This program taught me a lot on the values of the different types of foods. It showed me how advertising is used to provide false claims to consumers. Eating the natural foods instead of box and canned foods. They say the best things in life are free with this diet it illustrates that the value of water is important for the well being of ones health.
Listen, Focus, Practice. Use the information gained in this program for the rest of your life and educate others how they can improve their lives.
Vivienne than you for all the knowledge shared with me. You have given me support when I found it tough and helped me complete the program successfully.
To You and your family. God Bless."

I struggled with loosing weight for the past 4 years. I had tried different slimming programs and products without loosing the weight. When I saw testimonies about YouNique weight loss program. I got very interested in wanting to know how the program works and if they were also true and I booked myself for an appointment. When I was given the guarantee that if I do not loose weight within the first week I will get my money back that's when I decided to join. Within my first week I had lost 5.1kg and was so excited and at the end of my phase two which is a period of 10 weeks - I had lost 11kg and my weight was 48kg. The program works wonders and improvement on my skin is great."

Miss X (Total anonymity requested)
Age : 26
Weight Loss : 8Kgs.
Miss X was a dedicated dieter despite falling victim to carbs in the early weeks. Chocolate bars were her weakness but after a few weeks she managed to gain control and lost weight quite regularly. She was happy to allow her testimonial to appear on our website to encourage other dieters, but wanted to completely hide her identity.
Miss X's comments: " YouNique* Weight Loss programme changed my mindset. I'm now aware of the food I consume and what I should abstain from eating and the overall impact it has on my health and wellbeing, I now drink at least 2 litres of water a day compared to what I used to drink.
To all those that have tried every diet on the market and lost hope with no results, I recommend YouNique* diet programme to you. This diet has amazed me and exceeded my expectations. Vivienne is truly a God send with her constant guidance and support. I have lost weight almost everyday which motivated me. I'm 100% sure that it will do the same for you. "
Camilla Moodley - Morningside
Age : 33
Weight Loss : 12Kgs.
Camilla had tried to lose weight for over 2 years and tried various other diets before coming to us. Like many new clients, when she heard how strict it was, she was nervous that she would not be able to stick to the protocol fully. She did.
Camilla's comments: " This programme is life changing. Although it is very challenging, you see daily results which keep you motivated. Definitely worth it but not for the faint hearted.
Vivienne is a great support and her advice is both personal and practical. "
Sheetal Karshan - Durban
Age : 40
Weight Loss : 20Kgs.
Sheetal was a great dieter and embraced what we could do for her. Sheetal gained weight after her 3rd child and struggled to lose it. Sheetal and her husband run their own business as well as a family so as you can imagine she has very little time. She was one of the few of our dieters that did not cheat at any time.
Sheetal's comments: " The was the best thing I have ever done! It worked faster than gyming and I would recommend it to anyone. The diet has given me more confidence, a spring in my step and more energy especially after 3 kids. I look fantastic! "
Susan Celliers - Johannesburg
Age : 29
Weight Loss : 33Kgs.
Susan has always had a problem with obesity since her teenage years. No diet she tried worked for her until a friend referred her to YouNique*.
Although very skeptical at first, she started to see results within 48 hours and went on to lose a total of 33 Kgs over two sessions, one of 12 weeks and the second lasting 5 weeks, with a 3 month break in between.
Susan's comments: "I am still in shock that the diet worked and cannot stop looking in the mirror. I have never been so vain! Your support was unbelievable, even long afterwards when I was scared to try eating normal foods again. I could not have done it without you walking me so carefully through every phase. Thank you so very much! "
Cynthia Thompson- Durban
Age : 67
Weight Loss : 30 Kgs.
Cynthia suffered with heart problems and arthritis in the hips. Cynthia needed to lose weight quickly. She took to the diet very well and lost 30 Kgs in 18 weeks.
Cynthia's comments: "I am very happy that I did it, I lost 30 kilos in 18 weeks & everyone I know is complimenting me on my size and looking much younger. At my age it's amazing that I lost weight at this rate but I know that if it had been slower I would have given up as I have many times before.
Thank you Vivienne ".
Dianne Gold Parkes - La Lucia
Age : 62

Dianne's comments: "Thank you Viv for bringing me to this stage and listening to my horror stories on life. Your friendship is valued ".
Manuela Pearson - Durban
Age : 51
Weight Loss : 12 Kgs.
Manuela was exremely sceptical and expected the diet to fail as all other before have. In fact Manuela continued to frown through her appointments until she was happy that the weight loss was consistant. Manuela was a great dieter and did not cheat.
Manuela's comments: "The diet turned me back into the person I was before my body decided to go crazy. Happier and more positive about myself and hot flushes gone.
Not for the faint hearted but you will not be sorry that you did it ".
Alisa Reddy - Durban
Age : 33

Alisa's comments: "I am so confident dressing up and feel energised. I have not been happy with my weight since I had my daughter 6 years ago.
I am incredibly grateful to Vivienne for her continued support and motivation and I personally feel her approach makes this programme work. "
Keseri Harinarain - Durban North
Age : 45
Weight Loss : 8.2 Kgs.
Keseri did not have a lot of weight to lose but a spinal injury meant that weight she carried on her stomach was causing great discomfort. Keseri took well to the diet and used the allowed spices and herbs to enhance the flavours. Keseri hit her target weight and took the pressure from her back.
Keseri's comments: " It is someting you must do for yourself or else it won't work. Stick to it and you will love the results.
In the beginning it was hard but once you start to prepare youself and use your immagination the food is devine.It is a goal you have to try and acheive. You don't just lose weight you lose centimetres too!
Nothing is impossible...The word is "I...m..Possible" ".

Shanice's comments: " YouNique* Weight Loss is unlike any diet I have tried. The constant weightloss you see keeps you motivated to carry on as well as the support given to me.
It has been a good experience and the diet has given me excellent results. "
Jennie Dallas - Johannesburg Age : 55 Weight Loss : 18 Kgs.
Jennie joined us because she wanted to look good for her daughter's wedding. She extended her programme as far as she could to achieve maximum losses without compromising her ability to stabilize in time and ended up doing it for 10 weeks. She gave such an extensive feedback comment that we will let her speak for herself ...
Jennie's comments: "I have always struggled with my weight and could motivate myself to lose up to 4 or 5 kgs but then lost the plot and put it back on and had to start again - gradually gaining weight over the years due to bad eating habits and lack of understanding as to what are GOOD diet foods and what not i.e. I thought lentils and Chickpeas were great proteins not realizing that they are also a carb etc.
This diet was really tough for the first two months with really limited options to choose from to eat especially someone like me who already has a big list of foods I don't eat anyway - some vegs, no cooked veg at all and no Fish for example so my choices were even more limited - I may never eat cabbage or spinach again after crunching and munching raw almost daily what a lot of effort!!
But the feedback/ explanations and weight losses were impressive and very motivational and it was only for a LIMITED SHORT TERM PERIOD so it was MANAGEABLE and DOABLE and the reward was there - it helped to have a wedding to attend 2 months down the line - this is the best kind of motivation of all of course - to KNOW WHY you are "suffering"!!!
The maintenance / protein / fats diet has been super although I was never a big meat eater (and not a fish eater either) but I have loved it as there are lots of choices and options and I can enjoy the yoghurt/seeds/fruit dish (like ice cream or pudding treat) as well as eggs/cheese which are among my favourites and eventually got used to the steaks etc .
Am looking forward to going forward although nervous that I will lose the plot but I feel that Vivienne will be there to guide me and the Fasting water day with Steak was a great success so I am sure I can keep the weight at the level it should remain at even if I overdo a day here or there as there are ways to "fix" when necessary and my overall MIND TRAINING is now STRONGER and more determined than previously so I CAN DO IT if needed..AND I have learned SO Much about the GOOD foods and foods to be avoided so I am SURE we can go forward positively."
