  • Tannith's Transformation - Part 2

    Tannith's Transformation Our first photo together – December 1999 – almost 18 years ago

    This week sees me feeling quite emotional.

    On Friday, I received an email from our divorce lawyer advising us of the court date to finalise our divorce. It is happening this week Friday. In a way it will be good to be finalised, and I can get on with my life. But in another way, it will be the official end of my marriage. It will all be final. The end of an 18 year relationship.

  • Tannith's Transformation Journey Starts

    2017 - At my highest weight ever, at the start of my adventure with Herbex.

    Hi. My name is Tannith. I’m 33 and I live in a lovely seaside suburb of Cape Town.

    I haven’t always struggled with my weight, but looking back, it was when I started high school that I started to take notice of my weight. When I started high school, I moved from an all-girls primary school to a co-ed school high school. The boys started making fun of me, and I was teased a lot. I wasn’t overweight or fat, but I wasn’t as small as the other girls in school.

    Even though I didn’t think so at the time, I actually wasn’t overweight in high school!

    I started trying different eating plans and diets, and even went as far as taking appetite suppressant pills (my mom had to sign a special register for the pills at the chemist!). I remember the one diet; I was only allowed to eat every 5 hours. But the amount of food allocated to each meal wasn’t enough to keep me full for 5 hours. I was starving.

    Reboot Your Metabolism After 40

    As women grow older, sweeping changes in their bodily functions emanate from shifts in their lifestyles, metabolisms and hormones.

  • 6 (important!) tips to lose weight with healthy snacking

    Cropped shot of an attractive young woman carrying a grocery baghttp://

    Is it really possible to eat more and weigh less? Sure it is! For those of us who find it hard not to eat in between meals when trying to lose weight, snacking is a great solution.

    When you eat too little and you’re constantly hungry, your body can go into a state of famine. This slows metabolism and makes it easier to pack on the extra weight.

    Eating small, frequent snacks keeps your metabolism revved up and helps normalise your blood sugar. However, it’s important to remember that this doesn’t give you permission to eat whatever you want. Continue reading
