The Ultimate You Transformation: Does It Work?

Failing one health kick at a time.

So it certainly surprised a lot of people when in the New Year, I decided to sign up for the Ultimate You Transformation (UYT) program, designed for participants to lose 9 kilos (20 pounds) in a matter of 6 weeks, which, at first glance, is batsh!t insane.

Like many people, I had tried lazy girl's way outs. Swore to not eat carbs for a day or two only to find myself hovering over a pizza:
