What if you could finally lose the weight for good and get the body, confidence and lifestyle you want?
We get it. Not being happy in your own body sucks.
You’re low in confidence and think you’re not good enough.
You feel embarrassed and ashamed, so you do anything to avoid attention.
You run from having your photo taken, you’re afraid to wear bathers, and you avoid shopping for clothes.
You’re desperate for a solution, but you’re also afraid.
We know how you feel because we’ve been there as well.
But we have the solution, and we know we can help.
We take the guesswork out of long-term weight loss
Through our Diet Antidote Transformation System (DATS™️ Program) we help people just like you lose weight for good and gain confidence.
We know that you’ve been working hard to lose weight, but nothing you’ve done seems to work. You may even be wondering if there’s something wrong with you.
Believe us. There is nothing wrong with you.
It’s the fitness and diet industry that’s at fault because they’ve been selling you solutions that only leave you feeling worse than before.
And then they’ve blamed you for not being able to lose weight.
A different approach to weight loss
That’s why we created the Diet Antidote Transformation System (DATSTM Program), The Not-Diet Diet for people who are sick of diets and want more than a good body.
Our DATSTM Program will show you a new way to lose weight that doesn’t involve food restriction, calorie-counting or feeling guilty about eating.
It will give you all the answers you’ve been looking for, so you can lose weight for good and never have to worry about it again.
Through our program, we help you address the habits (beliefs, mindset and behaviours) that have led you to become overweight and unhappy, so you can finally lose weight and reclaim your health, vitality, confidence and freedom.
And as our program is delivered online or face-to-face, you can work with us no matter where you are in the world.
THE IMANI STORY
Think about your goal to lose weight. Why haven’t you accomplished it yet?
If you’re like most people, the answer comes down to fear.
You see, weight loss isn’t about food or exercise. It’s always about our fears (habits, beliefs and mindset).
This explains why people keep going on diets.
They’re afraid they can’t lose weight unless they restrict their food.
They’re afraid that if they don’t lose weight, they won’t be enough.
They’re afraid that being overweight makes them unworthy
And they’re afraid of being judged for what they look like.
Like any fear, the way to overcome it is to face it head-on, not run away.
To lose weight, you need to let go of your fears and face them head on, because fear is a poison that will ruin your entire life.
The good news is that there is an antidote to fear — and that’s faith.
IMANI (Pronunciation: i-MAH-nee) means FAITH in Swahili.
If you’re struggling with your weight, you don’t need another diet or exercise program. You need IMANI.
WHAT IS IMANI?
IMANI means choosing faith over fear because the fears we don’t face become our limitations, and those limitations become baggage that prevents us from losing weight.
IMANI is to stare down life’s most difficult and terrifying challenges and still take action.
IMANI is living a happy and fulfilled life.
IMANI is love, self-belief, self-worth, confidence, the courage to be vulnerable, authentic and brave.
Finding your IMANI is a place of mystery where we find the courage to believe in what we cannot see and the strength to let go of our fear of uncertainty.
IMANI is the missing link between who we are and the best version of ourselves.
Unfortunately, most people live in a restricted circle of potential without finding their IMANI.
FIND YOUR IMANI
Lack of IMANI is the missing link that will stop you from achieving the health, vitality, confidence, freedom and anything you really want.
Lack of IMANI distracts you from doing what you need to do, to have the life you want.
Lack of IMANI leads to excuses and a life of mediocrity.
But it doesn’t have to.
Finding your IMANI is one of the most liberating pursuits you can undertake.
FIND YOUR IMANI…with us.

The ‘I’ stands for IMANI, which means faith. The ‘T’ stands for Tribe — a close-knit, supportive and non-judgemental community. Together they represent the human body, mind and soul.
The circle represents our holistic approach — How you LOOK (body shape/ composition), how you FEEL (your health) and how you FUNCTION (energy levels).Our program is a complete process that constructs the correct environment for permanent change. It provides you with the knowledge, systems, tools and skills, which can be used in any situation, every day of the week. The circle also signifies unity and the efforts of all those involved in supporting your journey.
The puzzle pieces fitting together represents us helping you put the pieces of your puzzle together and finding the missing piece from within. The puzzle represents patience because just like a messy and scattered puzzle, it takes time for the pieces of your life and Transformation to come together.
Transformation is like a puzzle — we have all the pieces, we just need time, love.
