Sonal Patel: Probably, quite having carbohydrates and probably have cereal or a little porridge for breakfast, sandwich, of course, some probably chocolate. I'm eating snack, maybe a cake, and then probably rice, a portion of protein, maybe chicken and vegetables in the evening.
Georgina Burnett: So, are you going to be changing your eating habits occurring side of the power plating?
Sonal Patel: Yeah, I'm going to actually do the Gillie diet, so actually cutting out a little bit of carbohydrates on which I'm currently eating and increasing a lot of protein.
Georgina Burnett: Right. So, what are your preconceptions as to power plating? What do you think it's going to do for you?
Sonal Patel: I believe it's going to turn off a lot of my major muscle groups; so my legs, my bum, my stomach, and arms. I'm hoping that increasing the muscle tone will then burn a lot fat that I have already got.
Georgina Burnett: Now, obviously the aim is to lose weight, to drop your dress size. Why is that you want to do that?
Sonal Patel: Because truly I'm not happy with the way I am. I wouldn't feel comfortable in a bikini, so I just went to tone up physical holiday at the June by and its quite proportionate.

Power plate is a machine, which gives your body a high speed workout, the vibrations of work on muscles to fifty times of second, which is great. So, 15 minute workout as much as an hour in the gym. Perfect time to be fit session in your lunch hour.

The high point was my stomach and being able to get into jean that I've never been able to wear before, which was tough that and I'm dropping the dress size. The difficulties of the poses, especially towards the end was where when my friends are going out fossilizing and keeping to a healthy diet of what have people with exercise was most difficult. It seems not six days, it's such an achievement. She has slimmed down to a sexy sized angle, sustaining weight and she is happier than ever.
Sonal Patel: I definitely recommend it to others because having struggled with my weight this is the first thing that I have done that I've actually really notice the change with, so I definitely recommend for those people out there that you know who are looking to turn off and things to shut those pounds and have minds to do so with things that this would one of the thing that could work for them.
Jennifer Dunkerley: Power plates are widely available in gyms all over the country, so you could do that too.
