The internet company director tells how she was always bigger than the other kids at school and would find excuses not to get changed into the PE kit because she was so self-conscious.
‘I never really felt that I fitted in. By the time I was 20 I weighed around 14 stone,’ she says.
‘I used to try going to the gym and went to a few exercise classes, like body pump, but I just found I couldn’t keep up.’
Jane’s weight fluctuated over the next 16 years, and by the time she got married in 2014 she weighed around 15 stone and was a size 20.
Jane, who is now single, was determined to shed her excess pounds, but nothing worked until she found the diet pill (pictured after her weight loss)

She says: ‘Seeing my wedding photos gave me a bit of a shock. You don’t realise how you look sometimes, and up until that point I think I was in denial.
‘How I looked on my wedding photos made me want to lose the weight. We’d also been on a holiday and I struggled to get my seat belt around me – I was just so uncomfortable and miserable being that size.’
Jane, who is now single, was determined to shed her excess pounds, but it wasn’t as easy as she had hoped.
‘After the wedding I cut out carbs for a month, but it just made me so depressed it caused arguments,’ she recalls.

A friend recommended Jane tried Phen24 slimming pills, taking a morning and evening dose, and within a week she says she was 10lbs lighter (pictured before her weight loss)
‘I found it impossible to stick to anything for very long. I tried Weight Watchers, the Atkins diet, I cut out dairy and wheat, but all the diets I tried just resulted in me feeling miserable.’
A friend recommended Jane tried Phen24 slimming pills, taking a morning and evening dose, and within a week she says she was 10lbs lighter.
Within six months she’d gone from 15st 7lbs to 9st 8lbs and needed to buy a whole new wardrobe.
‘I couldn’t believe how quickly and easily the weight came off,’ she says.
‘I’d tried other slimming pills I’d bought online, but they made me feel really anxious and shaky from the amount of caffeine in them.

Having tried other slimming pills, which made her feel really anxious and shaky from the amount of caffeine in them, Jane opted for the natural supplements
‘I was willing to try anything, but the fact this was a natural supplement was also a plus.
‘I’ve got dogs and have always enjoyed walking them, but as the weight came off I felt I had more energy and found I could go a bit further.’

And she’s not the only Brit snapping up Phen24. The makers, who guarantee a 1st 2lb weight loss within a month, claim to sell one every 90 seconds in the UK alone.
It was created by UK nutritionist Angela MacRitchie, after she became alarmed by the number of clients suffering from side effects after taking other diet pills.

She says the specially formulated morning and evening tablets work with the human body’s different responses to being awake and sleeping.
It works with your own metabolism to boost thermogenesis, a process where the body produces heat by burning calories.
Who should not take Phen24?
Phen24 should not be used by individuals who are pregnant or nursing, under the age of 18, those with depression or who are taking anti-depressants, diabetics, those with endocrine or autoimmune disorders, those with prostate cancer or hypertrophy, those with liver or kidney disease, or those with breast cancer or testicular cancer
MacRitchie says: ‘Metabolisms can be tricky. Sometimes when you do all the right things, you still don’t see the results you want. That’s why I formulated a natural supplement that heightens the thermogenesis process according to your sleep and wake cycle.
‘Sadly in my profession I have come across many clients who have had bad experiences with slimming supplements.
‘Some of the side effects they have noted are horrendous. It was after seeing one client who was struggling with her weight that I decided to conduct research into natural ingredients that I know will biologically help with weight loss.
‘Three years later I launched Phen24, confident that the unique combination of natural ingredients will deliver safe weight management without any side effects.’
The treatment involves taking one morning supplement that makers claim ‘adds fuel to your metabolism fire to heighten thermogenesis process’.
Ingredients include Zinc to boost metabolism function, Guarana Extract –the ancient Amazonian extract used to reduce mental and physical fatigue – and Cayenne powder, which has been proven to whilst boost athletic performance.
The capsaicin in cayenne has shown to help improve metabolic functions, blood circulation, and digestion. Whilst the night-time ingredients are said ‘to strengthen your resting metabolism’.
Jane adds: ‘Being slimmer I’m much happier and more confident in how I feel and look.’
