Praise for Donna & Tora
Here are some of the lovely things people have been saying!
I lost the last 11lbs (5kg) & I take amazing care of myself!
Donna & Tora’s program keeps me on track. It keeps me at my preferred weight. I feel in control and I feel I have options and choices. The best bit is that I can be in control but still have a lot of fun (with NO guilt). I have balance and I am healthy. I could not be any of these things without Donna and Tora. Life is a never ending journey of knowledge and they provide so much of it. Their emails are always a joy and I love learning new ways of looking after myself. Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest difference – especially to mental attitude. So I’ve now got some Donna/Tora mantras that I couldn’t live without. They really work!!!!!! I can’t thank you guys enough for changing so much about my life – mostly mentally which has had such a big impact physically. ~ Wendy, Australia
I feel confident about my weight for the first time in many years
“I didn’t think I could do what Donna and Tora do, but I followed the simple steps and lessons and have now lost 18kg/40lb. I actually wore a skirt to the Christmas party for the first time in 10 years!” ~ Melissa, Australia
Donna & Tora’s training, lifestyle and philosophy have infused into my brain
“I now know what thinking of mine was holding me back. I now know that I really have to stop fooling myself and do the work. I now know that weight loss is not a destination but an ongoing journey. I have lost half of my weight and have kept it off for six months now. My waist measurement is 82 cms. I now exercise regularly, yes, four to five times per week. I consciously choose whether it’s going to be a Donna size plate or a Tora size (!). I now believe, truly believe, that I can get to my target weight. ~ Gay, Australia
Hugs to you both, all the work has paid off
“Since Donna & Tora’s program I have changed my mindset about day to day eating habits, I have lost about 8kg/18lb, reignited my passion for running, run a personal best in the 1/2 marathon and took on the role of President of my running club. None of this was on the radar last year.” ~ Paul, Australia
The UWC Formula has taught me that the changes I make should be for life not for a means to get to a weight that I am happy with, because now I realise that it doesn’t work like that. UWC has made me understand that there are much bigger reasons to want to lose weight. Being around and fit for my family and the lifestyle that I have chosen were much bigger reasons than vanity. The weight is just a symptom of all the stuff that isn’t right in my life. Why am I not important enough to put myself first? Because no-one else will do that job. When you start valuing yourself, it becomes self-perpetuating. Then it’s not about just losing weight. The excess weight started coming off because I wanted to nourish my body with food that I knew would do that for me. Going to the gym was a way of keeping myself fit, not a chore, because if I didn’t go, I would never be slim. No-one said it was going to be easy but with the advice from Donna and Tora, there is always someone there to support you. Make a promise to yourself, no more quick fix diets or unrealistic gym routines. All the answers are here on this no nonsense programme. ~ Suzanne, UK
Having tried several different diets and techniques to lose weight I have finally found something that works. Donna and Tora’s UWC Formula really gets to the heart of my weight issues. Their videos are not only informative and interesting, but fun as well . Even over Christmas and the New Year I could see and hear Donna and Tora’s advice, and even though I wasn’t perfect over the holidays I haven’t been beating myself up about it. I think that’s the biggest thing I have learnt is to watch myself and understand why I have the naughty things, even when I don’t really want them. Thanks Donna and Tora, my husband thanks you too as I am a much happier (and getting slimmer) person! ~ Jane, Australia
Thinking about the teaching side of your healthy living concept and being able to go online to have YOU REINFORCE IT has been great. I love trying out the new recipes and tweeking my old ones. It’s NOT a diet but more about being aware of what to eat to help you. I feel in charge, thank you. ~ Carolyn, New Zealand
I’m back to my confident weight and embracing life again
A fantastic programme! It was refreshing to debunk the myths and learn the secret to your successes. You are both powerful, engaging and inspirational facilitators who have earned the right and respect through your achievement in your own personal journeys. ~ Alison, Australia
Thanks heaps Donna & Tora! Your videos were fun, easy and informative, and my mindset, motivation and metabolism journal kept me motivated and focused on my goals. ~ Simon, USA
Thank you sooooo much Donna and Tora. Your knowledge, insights and support are all brilliant. The fact that you’ve both gone through the weight horrors and survived (and both look so fantastic) is inspiring. I love your no-nonsense advice served with extra dollops of caring. Your comprehensive counsel is the only wisdom needed to experience good health, positive self-esteem and weight control ~ Deanne, Australia
For the past 3 and a half months I have followed your 90 day program and it’s worked. The online support has been great, and my head now rules my stomach – a big switch around. Having been stuck in my ways for many years, it’s quite amazing to learn that change is possible and wonderful, and it all started with you two. To coin a phrase, I’m in charge – first time for many years, so thank you Tora and Donna. – Jean, UK.
I’m going to be forty. And, if I said I’ve tried a different diet for each of my years, that’s probably not enough. I’ve tried them all. Sometimes I would lose weight, sometimes I’d put weight on. Once I lost 2 stone…. Then I put back on 3! You name it… I bet I’ve tried it. And the older I got, the heavier I weighed. I took the plunge and asked Donna & Tora to help me. Despite being on the other side of the world i’ve found that my coaching once a week has been amazing. As time went on, I found that my whole relationship with food has changed. More than anything, this isn’t a fad, or a short lived trawl, it’s an ongoing brand new relationship with food and a healthier way of being. The work is simple. The change is powerful. The feeling is great. - Fiona, UK
