In 2013 I set myself a goal instead of a resolution. As a result I’ve lost 27.8kgs in that time. This is a pic of me at my heaviest of 93kgs in 2010 and now 60kgs. Don’t make a resolution. Set a goal, shoot and score! Over 22kgs was lost with the bikini cookbooks. Best decision I ever made. Julie.


When I first started this journey I had no I idea how easy it would be. I tried to lose weight so many times before and nothing worked, I will always be grateful for the day I met Michelle and bought my first book. I was 92.3 kgs the heaviest I had ever been! I loved how easy and tasty all the dishes are so I then bought the complete set. In 12 months I lost a total of 22.3 kgs, in that time I was laid up for four of them with a broken ankle but I still managed to lose 7 kgs with very little exercise. I am now 70 kgs and on my way to my goal weight of 62 kgs. These recipes have become a lifestyle myself and my family enjoy everyday. Forever grateful Michelle, thank you xx


From 89.5kg to 68.5kg she lost over 20kg a couple of years ago with the bikini cookbooks and still maintains that gorgeous curvy body! Oh and still cooking bikini cookbookmeals all the time, she has been one of my regular recipe testers for most of my books. This girl rocks and is someone I am proud of, so glad to have her in our little community!


My highest weight was 73kg and after 5 months of my bikini cookbook recipes I dropped 18kg and got down to my goal weight of 55kg. I have never been more fit and healthy in my life! Now after 4 years of my bikini cookbook lifestyle I have been able to maintain a healthy weight. This is the best thing I could have ever done for myself, I never want to go back to how I was.

The Bikini Cookbook series introduced me to simple and healthy meals… I have all Michelle’s books and regularly refer to them; impressed by the colourful photos and appetising recipes.  Another plus is that Michelle is always contactable and this creates a feeling of ‘being’.  I feel as if I am a member of the BCB family.  I honestly recommend her books to put you ‘on the right track’ food wise. Sincere thanks Michelle.
