Having spent over 25 years riding the dieting roller coaster I had a good understanding of why diets didn’t work, having tried probably every diet on the market and failed. Thinking it was me and not actually the diet.
When I saw that behind photo of me in 2015 at the Wangaratta Mother’s Day Classic I knew I could not diet again as I had been dieting for over 25 years and was still fat. I would lose the weight and then over time put it all back on plus more. I would exercise extensively and as soon as I stopped the weight would return. Everything I had ever done was put under a microscope and dissected. A wealth of knowledge I had gained having dieted for so long.
When you go on a calorie restricted diet your body goes into what is known as starvation mode, your metabolism slows down so much so that your body enters a state where weight loss can stop completely. Losing weight should be all about reduce the number of calories in and burn more calories which should = weight lost. Our bodies don’t see it that way, when you reduce calories it thinks it’s the beginning of starvation (as our bodies have been conditioned for thousands of years to act this way) and will do everything it can to reserve its fat cells. It can trick you into being hungry and craving food so you consume more.
So, with the help of my sister in law who runs an international Natural Health Care Company, with over 15 years in the health industry we began researching diets and products. We both knew that I needed to target the three areas of weight loss BURN fat, BLOCK cravings which were completely out of control and I had to BUILD muscle that didn’t require extensive workout sessions because quite frankly when you were as overweight as I was exercising was the last thing I could do and maintain it. (as I had proved this time and time again in the past)
I also knew that I could not out run my fork so it was important to develop weight loss products that had proven to help in the weight loss fight.
So, after months and months of research we created a three-unique product formulation that would see me fight these three stages of weight loss (which had not been used in Australia in combination before) BURN fat, BLOCK cravings and BUILD muscle.
XLR8 BURN PROTEIN SHAKE
XLR8 BURN was introduced to not only to get more protein into my diet as this was needed to burn fat, but also to help control eating and portion sizes with a controlled amount for the meal. It is a quick an easy way to have a meal that is under 5 grams of carbs.
Protein in your diet is extremely important if you want to lose weight, gain energy and create more toned and efficient muscles.
XLR8 BLOCK Raspberry Ketone blend helps your body break down fat more efficiently and help increase your metabolism. It provides 100% natural and safe way to help you lose weight quickly and easily
To help assist with the of blocking cravings XLR8 BLOCK combines the ingredients of Raspberry Ketone, African Mango Extract (Irvingia Gabonensis), Acai Fruit, Green Tea Extract, Resveratrol, Apple Cider Vinegar (powder), Kelp, Grapefruit (powder)
Apart from the benefits of Raspberry Ketone which serves to regulate adiponectin in the body, this powerful complex includes a variety of other substances which are known for their weight loss properties.
African Mango is known to act as a purgative. Separate studies in 2005, 2008 and 2009 demonstrated that the intake of African Mango results in greater weight-loss, body-fat loss and an improvement in blood pressure.
Acai fruit and Green Тea are natural antioxidants which help neutralizing free radicals in the body, slow down aging and reduce the risk of cancer and heart-related diseases.
Resveratrol is a substance which is produced by a number of plants as a type of defensive mechanism. It has been shown to have cardio protective, antidiabetic and anti-inflammatory effects, amongst others.
A 2009 study in Japan demonstrated that a regular intake of certain amounts of Apple Cider Vinegar can have positive effects in reducing obesity. It is also thought that Apple Cider Vinegar prolongs the feeling of satiety and thus regulates hunger.
Kelp, a seaweed that has been used for many centuries in Asia and Europe, is a very good source of iodine and iron. A 2010 study by the University of Newcastle demonstrated that Kelp was also good at preventing fat absorption.
Grapefruits have been shown to lower cholesterol and to have strong antimicrobial properties. This combination of supplements is a powerful boost for your weight-loss efforts.
XLR8 BUILD is an amino complex blend containing nine essential amino acids (EAAS). EAAS cannot be produced by the body and must be supplied from dietary sources. Deficiencies in EAAS can lead to loss of muscle tissue or tone.
Amino Acids are more widely known as an after work out drink product for sports and fitness as they are considered to be building blocks of protein. They have been clinically studied to work at a cellular level to assist and speed up muscle repair, promote muscle growth and limit muscle breakdown.
We discovered that adding Essential Amino Acids to our weight loss program encourages the body to produce enough fat-burning hormones, in a natural manner, by stimulating protein synthesis and boost fat oxidation. This is a very important part of the fat loss process.

I have completed my Diploma in Human Nutrition. This has enabled me to gain the knowledge to understand how the body works and the importance of foods especially carbohydrates. I have also written four books to give people the knowledge and education I have learnt through this whole process. We have also developed our mobile app - MY XLR8 your weight loss buddy.
We also suggest that people on XLR8 follow a low carb diet, which has been around for decades and massive amount of research on it. A quick google of it and you will find thousands of sites to look at.
Carbohydrates are sugars that break down inside the body to create glucose.
Glucose is moved around the body in the blood and is the primary source of energy for the brain, muscles, and other essential cells.
The healthy body attempts to regulate glucose levels by using a series of hormones – insulin and glucagon, which are produced by the pancreas gland.
Insulin lowers blood sugar levels by moving the glucose to the various parts of the body and aiding its absorption, excess glucose can be stored in the liver or in fat around the body.
Glucagon increases blood sugar levels by releasing glucose stored in the liver back into the bloodstream. Blood sugar levels are usually kept in check if the pancreas and liver are healthy and functioning normally.
Why go low carb?
We have been told that eating fat will make you fat. It is when you eat fat AND too many carbohydrates that can make you fat. When you eat carbohydrates, they are converted into glucose by your body. The pancreas then secretes insulin (or it may need to be injected) to reduce the blood glucose levels. Insulin is our fat STORING hormone and fat burning is switched off. If we restrict the amount of carbohydrates in our diet, we will require less insulin, and therefore store less fat and able to burn fat. This is when our body switches from glucose burning to fat burning.
WHEN YOU RESTRICT CARBS IN YOUR DIET YOU
- stabilise blood sugar levels
- stabilise insulin release
- stabilise hunger signals and learn to really recognise true hunger
- stop insulin spikes which lead to crashes in blood sugar then insatiable hunger
- lose weight
- improve blood lipid profile – increase good cholesterol decrease bad and lower triglycerides
- improved nutrient intake
- can help prevent developing type 2 diabetes by reducing your insulin levels
- reduce inflammation in arteries and veins which is a contributing factor to cardiovascular disease and dementia

We have an online XLR8ME COURSE that takes everyone through everything they need to know about XLR8, carbs, planning, out and about, support network, moving forward and the most important one being MINDSET. It is vital to have the right mindset and I have spent months re adjusting mine to allow my mind to catch up with the body. It’s time to love themselves and know they are worth it, not a failure and have done the best they can with the information they had. XLR8 provides this amazing platform for them to do it as they are learning from someone that has actually done it.
We also have a massive online support group with our XLR8 Riders that provides amazing support to each other daily.
I also educate all riders on how to shop in the supermarket, I spend alot of time shopping with people and showing them and also in their homes showing them the foods in their cupboards, how to read and understand food labels and getting yourself ready for your new lifestyle as I said this isn’t a diet but a whole new way of living.
My mission is to ensure everyone is given the opportunity to finally get off the roller coaster of dieting.
