Meet Jayne, 

My name is Jayne Hayward, I’m a 43-year-old single mum to a disabled child. For as long as I can remember, I’ve struggled with my weight, and most importantly, I never believed I would be able to change. 

For years I had accepted that being overweight was who I was and that dieting and weight loss were unachievable. 

In October of 2020, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, after months of lockdown, where I had continued with unhealthy eating habits and minimal exercise - I weighed over 24 stone, but this wasn’t my only concern, my Hb1ac was at a dangerously high level (114). I had been told that I was lucky to have not been hospitalised.

When I received the phone call from my doctor, I was in the middle of cooking a large pot of Macaroni & Cheese, after the phone call I found myself crying and throwing away the meal I had just prepared. I knew then that I needed to change - So I threw everything in the bin and decided to start fresh. 

Why did you choose to use the Skinny Food Co products?

Jaynes weightloss journey with skinny food co

After receiving the news regarding my diabetes, I instantly began making changes, and I saw quick results. All of my friends & family were so pleased with me, they kept asking me how I felt and how happy I must’ve been.

But I wasn’t, I was miserable! I have always had a love for tasty foods, and now I was left eating dry & bland foods, as I was so scared of sugar & calories, I felt there was no joy in my day-to-day life when it came to meals. 

But then, one day at my local shop, I found a bottle of The Skinny Food Co’s chocolate syrup. I must’ve read the label 10 times, I couldn’t believe it was zero sugar & virtually zero calories!

To be honest, I bought it thinking it would taste disgusting, I had no hope or expectations, but when I got home, I dashed a small amount into a pot of plain zero-fat yoghurt… and OH MY GOD, suddenly I had taste again. 

The next day I went straight back, I bought another chocolate syrup & ketchup. The sauces continued to amaze me, I had to try them all!

What are your favourite Skinny Food Co products?

I continued to try all of your products, from sauces to syrups to snacks, but my absolute favourite products are the Ketchup Sauce & the White chocolate and raspberry, Bakewell tart & Black Forest Gateaux syrups.

How has Skinny Food Co helped you achieve your goals?

Since starting my weight-loss journey I have gone from 24 stone to 8 stone! I genuinely believe I would not have been able to continue with my diet plan if it wasn’t for The Skinny Food Co’s sauces & syrups because I was SO miserable.

My Hb1ac has also gone from 114 to 29 - without any medication.

But most importantly, I’m happy. I can taste and enjoy foods, everything has flavour now. Skinny Food Co’s sauces and syrups are the absolute best product line on the market for people who want to reduce sugars for whatever reasons.

Now 2 years later, I am a health & wellbeing coach in my local GP Surgery! I specialise in weight loss & supporting people managing their diabetes. Whenever my patients ask about your products, I proudly say that I love them and encourage everyone to try them!

What would you say to others who wish to achieve their goals?

Helping people achieve their goals is now my career, and I absolutely love it. My advice to anyone looking to make a change in their lives is, the smallest changes make the biggest differences. 

Changing one or two small things every so often is far easier and more sustainable than trying to completely change everything all at once. 

Swapping out one of your unhealthier products for a skinny one, will slowly over time add up. 

If you notice that you regularly pour 2-3 teaspoons of sugar into your hot drinks, then swap it for a zero-sugar syrup. Small changes will eventually turn into big ones, and you will have achieved your goals without feeling like you're sacrificing all your joy.
