Emily signed up to the programme because her friends had success with it in the past. She wanted to try something new as she had found her mental health suffered with alternative programmes. Emily noticed changes in her mind and body within 3 weeks of being on the programme!
My name is Emily Milsom and I’ve been on the Second Nature Programme for 6 weeks.
I signed up as my best friend had done the programme 18 months ago, when it was called OurPath, and had found it really useful for changing a lot of healthy habits. I was intrigued and ready to try something different.
About 3 or 4 weeks in when I looked in the mirror and saw that my body definition had changed, under my ribs in particular. It really made me feel ‘wow this is working.’ Seeing the work I was doing result in change was amazing. I’ve also noticed that I feel satisfied more often than over-full and that I don’t crave sugar or processed foods as much. In fact, I often decide against them. Being healthy to me means having a fit and healthy body, and eating nourishing food. It means having healthy habits that I could take anywhere with me when I travel.
In comparison to other programmes, I’d call it chalk and cheese. I did Slimming World in the past, and I lost weight but my mental health did not do so well. Once I even cried in the car due to putting on a lb. Not a great way to live, and certainly unsustainable in the real world. Second Nature is more immersive and supportive and gets under the skin about those deep mental issues involved with health. Really supporting you to move forward into the world we live in.
I’ve found the daily articles really helpful. I’m a learner, so having the knowledge about what’s going in my body i.e insulin and caffeine effects, has meant I now understand why I’m making the changes that I am. The other thing is mentoring, having the chat has been amazing. I have a lot of questions, so being able to leave questions for my mentor Grace and get personalised answers is super helpful.
The savoury slice recipe is one of my absolute faves, a great lunch or breakfast option. Haddock casserole is also one of my favourite dinners, so creamy and yummy and carb-less, so was great for my carb-free meal.
I would describe the programme as David Attenborough. He’s passionate, educated and driven, but he never makes you feel like you’re wrong and he’s right, or that you’re silly for not knowing things. He’s calming and empowering, which is how Second Nature makes me feel too.
Before you start, really think about the reason you’re doing this programme. Why are you wanting to change your health habits? Weight loss is an obvious goal, but it’s also very external. Think about why you’re doing this for you on the inside, better mental health? Feeling good? Tastier food? This is the long run will help you stay committed to yourself and your goals. Your future self will thank you.
