Vic­to­ria Braver­man has lost four stone in a year — by eat­ing as much as she liked

The Jewish Chronicle - - People -

LON­DON-BaSeD Vic­to­ria Braver­man has lost more than four stone in a year — and she says she did it by eat­ing as much as she liked.

Ms Braver­man, 43, joined a Swiss Cot­tage weight-loss group two years ago af­ter she says she had piled on the pounds in her 30s. the prin­ci­ple she says, is to ed­u­cate your­self into a low-fat diet, where you can eat an un­lim­ited amount of cer­tain “free foods” on cer­tain days. at 5ft 5in, is now a slim size eight. “I feel com­pletely more con­fi­dent and happy,” she tells Peo­ple.

“I had tried to lose weight in the past, but it was when I turned 40 and I looked in the mir­ror and thought: ‘I don’t want to look like this any more’.”

Re­luc­tantly, Ms Braver­man joined the Slim­ming World weight-loss group through her mother, who per­suaded her to give it a try. “I didn’t be­lieve it at all. I thought it was ridicu­lous but it just works.”

Does she worry about putting the weight back on? “No, I know what I can get away with.”

Ms Braver­man, who runs a voiceover agency, says she has al­ways loved her food. “My mum was a bril­liant cook when I was grow­ing up. Food has been one of the ma­jor rea­sons for be­ing.”

She adds: “I used to go through life hun­gry, but now I’m never hun­gry.”

Per­haps not too many bagels, though.
