    Keen to turn her life around, Evie signed up to Roar Fitness, a gym chain run by three-time Olympian, Sarah Lindsay.

    At Roar, the concept is relatively simpleparticipants stick to three nutrient-dense, high-protein meals a day with healthy snacks, while lifting heavy weights under the guidance of superfit trainers.

    Roar promises to give you the body of your dreams in as little as 12 週.

    Evie, who stands at a petite 5ft 3ins, MailOnlineに語った: ‘I was really unhealthy when I started; I was very overweight and on blood pressure medication which was directly linked to my weight.

    ‘My diet before was just everything in a huge quantity. I’d make everything from scratch but it would be a lot of pasta, a lot of wine, crisps, chocolate – all of it.

    ‘You can be a lazy vegetarian or vegan because there are a lot of meat substitutes.

    ‘I also have a family history of problems including arthritis and I had to do everything in my power to not let that become my future.

    So she threw herself into the new regime, going without any junk food or wine for more than a year.

    ‘When I signed up to the plan I just thought, there’s no point complaining, I can’t have it. I’m an all-or-nothing person so as soon as I started, I managed to shut it offno crisps or junk for a year and a half.

    ‘I really loved it. But at the start, my body went through withdrawalwe cut out carbs and sugars so I was going through withdrawal symptoms and suffered bad headaches.

    ‘I didn’t miss any foodI was so happy to follow a plan and I knew I could come back to chocolate, it would be there forever. I didn’t have chocolate for a year and a half, and wine on special occasions only.

    ‘I’m not sure how I’d have done if we weren’t in lockdown thoughbecause I work in a very sociable industry. But when Boris ruined Christmas, I crackedit drove me to a G&T.

    「今、, my thighs don’t rub, and I feel healthier, even just moving around is easier. When I was a size 18-20, I would feel it in my joints. Now I’m a size 12-14.

    Evie had around 12 gym sessions but once lockdown started in March 2020 she was just following a diet plan and walking her dog, aiming for 10,000 1日歩, ‘at least.

    彼女は付け加えた: ‘As soon as we were allowed back in gyms, I was there. The government would lift restrictions on the Monday and I’d be in the gym, その朝. We focused on lower body or lower body, alternating between the two three times a week, one hour at a time.

    Evie was spurred to lose the weight after suffering an injury at university.

    彼女は言いました: ‘I grew up doing ballet followed by a degree in musical theatre so I was always active until my early 20s, when I tore ligaments in my anklethen it went downhill and I put on weight, very quickly.

    ‘Between November 2019 と1月 2020, I convinced myself that I couldn’t lose weight.

    ‘I was watching the TV show House one evening and they diagnosed someone with Cushing’s disease and I convinced myself that I had it – I had some of the symptoms, and even went to hospital and had loads of tests done.

    ‘I had put on 8kg in two months. But all the tests came back negative, and I was like c**p, I’m just fat.

    今, Evie is working on maintaining her new streamline figure while trying out new exercises.

    ‘I try to do at least 10,000 steps a day and go to the gym. この時点で, I’m just trying to educate myself about nutrition and exercise.

    ‘I make sure I get enough protein because I’m a vegetarian, I started an Instagram to try to help others and I’m just trying new thingstrampolining, bikesto figure out what I enjoy.

    ‘I eat balanced meals, and really just practice listening to hunger cues and mindful eating – which can be easier said than done.

    ‘When I was doing Roar I ate 1,500-1,700 calories per day. I don’t calorie count now, which can be stressful without the structure and accountability, but I try to be mindful and remind myself, 番号, I don’t need the third piece of toast.

    ‘My plan was to get to a size 12, which I did, then maintain that for a year then see if I want to go smaller.

    ‘I have to buy a whole new wardrobe for winter because I only have size 18 clothes.

    ‘I got taken off blood pressure medication because it came down to a normal range and moving around is now so much easier. I feel a world of difference and no longer get heartburn.

    Evie added: ‘I don’t miss anything now, I have it regularly, but listen to my body. There is chocolate in the house if I really really want it.

    ‘I would definitely do the programme again, and would tell anyone to do it, especially when you need a big life change like I did.

    ‘I also lost a few people I love to Covid; it makes you really think about underlying health conditions. It made people realise they’re a bit more mortal than they think.

    ‘I’m making sure I give myself the best possible foundation for myself in years to come.
