Win a copy and transform your life with 8 Weeks to Wow.

The world's leading celebrity transformation duo and the creators of the Original Bootcamp Chief Brabon & Emilie Brabon-Hames have recently released 8 Weeks to Wow. 

This book is essentially an 8 week plan that includes workouts, nutrition & recipes and motivational stories and information.

This program really works and includes a total diet overhaul that kickstarts ketosis. In just over 10 days on the program I have lost 4 kilos and Pete has lost 5kg. The hardest part is giving up refined carbohydrates, but we both feel the cravings have lessened with each day that has passed. 

The book includes some great success stories and practical information that will keep you motivated to stay on track.

To give you a sneak peak of the kinds of food you will eat on the program, I have included two of my favourite recipes from the book: BZB Fritters and Protein Pancakes.

BZB Fritters

Serves 4

2–3 slices lean bacon, trimmed
2 zucchini (courgettes)
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 handful shredded basil
chilli flakes, to taste
salt and freshly ground black pepper
lime wedges, for squeezing

Avo smash (optional)
2 cherry tomatoes, diced
1 small handful shredded basil
lime wedges, for squeezing
salt and freshly ground black pepper

To make the avo smash, roughly mash the avocado in a bowl. 
Add the diced tomatoes, basil and a good squeeze of lime. 
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and mix until just combined. 
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium–high heat. Fry the bacon until cooked and golden on both sides, then drain on 
paper towel. Cut into small pieces and set aside.

Grate the zucchini into a bowl and squeeze with your hands to remove the excess liquid. Stir in the eggs, basil and bacon 
pieces. Add the chilli flakes and season with salt and pepper, then mix well.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spoon the mixture into the pan to make four fritters. Cook, turning every 1–2 minutes to ensure even cooking, for about 8 minutes in total or until the fritters are golden and cooked through.

Serve the fritters with a squeeze of lime juice and a side of 
avo smash (if using).

NOTE: These fritters are lovely topped with a poached egg. Cook the fritters in non-stick egg rings to help them hold together.

Protein Pancakes

Serves 1
3 tablespoons low-carb Greek-style plain yoghurt
2 eggs + 1 egg white
1 scoop (30 g/1 oz)  banana protein powder 
teaspoon ground cinnamon
sachet of stevia (optional)

Whisk the yoghurt, eggs and egg white together in a bowl.

Combine the protein powder, cinnamon and sweetener in 
a separate bowl. Pour in the yoghurt mixture and whisk 
until smooth.

Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Pour in a ladleful of the batter and cook for 2–3  minutes or until bubbles start to appear on the surface. Turn and cook the other side until golden. Remove the pancake from the pan and keep warm while you cook the remaining batter. 

These pancakes are delicious by themselves in the early weeks, but feel free to top them with a little yoghurt and a few fresh berries once fruit is back on the menu (starting on the weekend of Week 4).
