MY #BOROMANCAN STORY:

“My dads got diabetes, I’m a South Asian male, I was very overweight and was going the same way. A healthy Heart check set me on the right course”

Omran was well aware in Summer 2017 in advance of his heart check that he needed to lose weight, so he started a month early and lost one stone before he had even walked in the room. Even then, he was still at 18 stone, he admitted he would need much more help to motivate him to a healthy weight. He was referred to New Life, New You through his local mosque’s health rep, Imran Naeem, and joined on his birthday in September. Two days later he was in the Live Well Centre for the first of two weekly sessions which he still attends. Having been introduced to trainer John Yarro, he also goes to a further two other classes on a Monday and Wednesday at Borough Road Methodist Church for 2 x 1 hour cardio workouts.

 “I eat more meals, more regularly and in smaller portions, with lower fat, lower sugar and eat more fruit. I drink more water and feel great, much happier. I’ve lost 4 stones now to 15 stone and lost 6.4 inches around my waist!”.

Omran also told us about the New Life, New You 2 programme for the management of diabetes that men can attend. Full details below.
