Starts Monday 2nd May. Registrations Closed
Registration for my "Mondays Matter" 8 Week Programme is currently closed. But please join my wait list to be the first to know when I open up the next Programme intake.
The programme utilises key strategies to help get some quick wins, plus embed the strategies required to help you stay on track and find the right mix of food, meals and time restricted eating (TRE) that you can use long term to maintain your weight. Those strategies are:
Fasting without Feeling too Hungry
Protein sparing modified fasts (PSMF): Fasting is increasingly utilised as a tool to help drop body fat, however in some instances, there are concerns that the lower overall protein load in this scenario can cause accelerated muscle mass loss. Muscle is ESSENTIAL to preserving metabolic rate (i.e. the number of calories you burn every day to exist) and good amounts of muscle mass are associated with longevity. PSMF helps combine the best of both worlds. Maintain protein intake on these days, reduced caloric load on that day, accelerate fat loss BUT not feel too hungry. On these days, you will consume predominantly protein-based foods.
Fasting Frequency Matched to Your Goals
Your level of desired fat loss will determine the number of PSMF days each week – but everyone will have at least one day of PSMF per week, and that is on a Monday (and that is why Mondays Matter).
Time Restricted Eating
The only way to lose body fat, whichever way you spin it, is a calorie deficit. Regardless of whether you are keto, paleo, vegan or follow a consistently low calorie diet, anyone that successfully loses body fat does so because they burn more calories than they take in. The approach of some TRE days can be easier to sustain, as you then return to level of food intake that leaves you feeling satisfied. The recommended period for TRE on the PSMF days is to eat within 8-9 hours (with a 15-16 hour fast). On other days, aim to consume your food within a 12 hour window (i.e. between 7am and 7pm).
Diet Breaks Without Stalling Fat Loss
Diet breaks: during the plan you will cycle through periods where i encourage you to eat MORE food, to eat 'off plan', to practice eating in maintenance. I'll explain more in subsequent information, but while people fear that this will stall fat loss, in fact the psychological break from dieting, combined with a 'reset' of appetite hormones, allows you to continue your fat loss plan for longer than you would otherwise.
Higher Protein to Support Fat Loss
Protein is a key nutrient to support fat loss - it takes longer to digest (keeping you fuller for longer), it regulates blood sugar levels (helping avoid cravings) and takes way more calories to digest than fat or carbohydrate - significant when creating a calorie deficit. If in doubt, turn to protein.
An Abundance of Vegetables to Regulate Appetite
Our stomach has receptors that let us know we have eaten enough food when they are stimulated, and this is related to food volume. For some people, this is a more important regulator of appetite than for others. Most vegetables can be eaten freely without fear of overeating calories, and as such I encourage you to eat your fill at each meal to ensure you feel satisfied, on non PSMF days.
Integrated Workout Suggestions
Workout suggestions throughout the programme to help you integrate short, sharp bouts of physical activity.
Advanced Preparation to Save Time
Tips for advance preparation, and cook once, eat twice meals - so while some preparation is key, you're not always in the kitchen.
Contact, Community and Accountability
Weekly emails, ability to message me 24/7 ( I see and respond to all of these) and fortnightly Zoom calls (that will be recorded and available) with me to help support you for the eight weeks. We will have specific topics each week, but enough time to answer individual questions.
What my members are saying
Micalla, I am absolutely grateful for this plan. It’s working for me in terms of satiety, weight loss and not even wanting to binge. Nothing is ever going to be perfect but I am just so bloody happy I chose this and I am positive I will continue to succeed.
Thank you! 🥰🙏Becks T
I’ve been weighing on Friday, so today was my final weigh-in for the first round - I’ve lost 9kg in the 8 weeks! Complete fasting has never worked for me, but I find the PSMF days really easy (almost easier than the “normal” days). On the non- PSMF days I’m much more mindful of what I’m eating and what will make me feel good. I’ve cut a lot of dairy and gluten out of my diet too, which I think has made a really big difference. Thanks so much for this plan, Mikki! I’m feeling so much better, more energy - just more “myself” again.Lauren D
Eight weeks of Monday Matters is done and dusted and I am so grateful I committed to this program! It was very overwhelming for the first couple of weeks but the support here and from Mikki Williden, PhD has enabled me to make good progress. I've lost 8.2kilos... but gained so much more! 🎉. I promised myself if I got under 80 kilos then I would buy myself some fancy tights etc. Very slim fitting for me but I'll be confidently rocking them, not because I'm slimmer but because I know I put the mahi in to get here.Ngaire
Never before have I followed a plan that I don’t weigh at the start and I haven’t weighed at the end of 8 weeks…..I have absolutely no idea how much weight I’ve lost, that feels cool…like it’s taking it away from the number on the scale making it more about my health & wellbeing, quite powerful! I do know I was squeezing out of my size 12’s heading towards my size 14’s, now I’m comfortable in my 8-10’s and still going strong, as in I’m not feeling like “right 8 weeks is done, it’s now (traditionally) self-sabotage time!!! That for me is…..”Life Changing”Pania P
I got myself some new clothes as a reward for sticking to the 8 weeks. Today I'm wearing them as I'm so proud of myself! And hey jeans are looser than when I brought them a month ago! Well done to all you peeps who have worked SO hard and thank you all for your daily inspiration. This 8 weeks has been literally life changing for me x Mikki Williden Real Food NutritionRachel M
