Nowadays, weight loss transformations are a dime a dozen, and it’s getting harder to tell what’s real and what’s plastic surgery. But the most significant or meaningful measure of all is when a person is not only able to keep it off, but they are able to tell you how they do it.

Kadija, better known as OMG_Kdja on Instagram is one of those people. The beautiful mother of two gained over 100 pounds over a two-year period and knew she had to do something, but what?

On her website, she details how she lost all the weight and kept her incredibly gorgeous curves, using a method or diet that not many people are familiar with.

Here’s Kadija in her own words:

Let me start off by saying that I am not a fitness instructor or a dietician, I am an ordinary divorced mum of two amazing little boys, who are the motivation and driving force for not only my weight loss but also in getting my life back on track.

These are not grains in the conventional sense, but cultures of yeast and lactic acid bacteria that resemble a cauliflower in appearance.

Over a period of 24 hours or so, the microorganisms in the kefir grains multiply and ferment the sugars in the milk, turning it into kefir.

Then the grains are removed from the liquid, and can be used again.

So basically, kefir is the drink, but kefir grains are the “starter kit” that you use to produce the drink.

Kefir originated from parts of Eastern Europe and Southwest Asia. The name is derived from the Turkish word keyif, which means “feeling good” after eating.

The lactic acid bacteria turn the lactose in the milk into lactic acid, so kefir tastes sour like yogurt, but has a thinner consistency.

Although weight loss was one of the major benefits, another health advantage I found was the positive effect Kefir has on those who suffer with anxiety, depression and sleep disorders like myself.

So, what is the Kefir plan?

According to her website, Kadija created a plan should not be seen as a “weight loss plan” but rather as a stepping stone to a healthier lifestyle. It is simple, easy to follow and…
