Hey BellaNaijarians,

I’m Destiny Amaka – Cool FM OAP and Actress, last year May 2015, I had an emotional breakdown and unlike before instead of stuffing my face, I just lost my appetite and couldn’t eat as much as I did before.

WOW, what a shock to my entire system because I love food so much. I lost a lot of weight in a short period of time (no fun at all and I certainly do not wish this on the next person).
When my appetite came back, I just didn’t want the extra weight back so instead of going back to my old eating habits, I started cutting my portions down.

I realised that my body doesn’t need as much food as I was giving it. I’ve lost a total of 23kg in 14 months with portion control, eliminating certain foods hitting the gym and drinking a lot of water.

My lifestyle completely changed and so did my health for the better, I sleep better, and have less aches and pains during the day.

Destiny Amaka 2016 BellaNaija Workout

I started of at 89kg and gradual worked my way down to 66kg. I was afraid to say anything before because I thought the weight would creep back as it usually does but this time it is gone for good :)…Well, until it’s time to start a family.

For now, my goal is to stay under 70kg and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

It didn’t happen overnight and what was different this time is that I wasn’t looking for quick rapid results as before but I focused more on not gaining the weight back and sustaining my weight by setting smaller goals and keeping an eye on my weight by weighing my self every Sunday.

That way, I have an idea of how I can manage my food intake for the coming week. Therefore, I know if there is  room to slack or if I needed to be a bit stricter that week. Let me not spoil it all, due to the overwhelming number of messages in my DM, I thought it would be easer if I did a Vlog explaining my journey, my does and donts and ideas of yummy healthy local delicacies.

The key for me was slow progress, this way it becomes a way of life, my body is still changing, I’m still learning new things and setting new goals.

If I can do it then so can you.

No pills.

No surgery.

Just a determined mind to stay healthier and happier.

    Is it just me or does the 2016 Destiny Amaka looks weird and sickly?

    Anyway, congrats on your weight loss

      Oh it’s just you. Why won’t u just keep this kind of unsolicited opinion to yourself eh? Imagine Destiny seeing this after all her breakdown, hardwork and self rebuilding? I wish people were more conscious of the effect of their words on others. Your tongue can either make or break. Choose the former. Thank you.

    Slimming tea and green tea does the magic. Even without stressing to do any exercise. I’m a living witness.

      Im currently using the Super Blend Green tea. Its a combo with lemon and ginger. The result is amazing. From my arms, thighs, stomach it burns the fat completely. Used to weigh 74kg, today I weigh 63kg. I love the feeling, cus i look trimmed and sexy. Lol. I still do my squats tho to maintain my round bum. Cus I noticed my bum reduced in size due to the effect of the tea.

      Slim tea/green tea only “supports” weight loss with its high caffeine content, nothing more. I’ve been a consistent organic green tea drinker for years and cannot solely credit green tea for my over 30 pounds weight loss in the last few years.

      The formula remains 80%diet and 20% exercise. Forget tea…teas.

    Nice figure. Unfortunately for her she’s very pear shaped and her face and upper body look gaunt and aged.


    August 5, 2016 at 1:15 am

    Her transformation is impressive plus that shape, get it girl!

      Yea right Her Body, so your opinion does not matter, keep It to yourself!!!

  15. hmmmmmmmmm

    August 5, 2016 at 11:53 am

    Well Done Destiny on reaching your goal. Now real work starts with the maintainence. Remember all it 80%,what you eat, 20% fitness, good luck in your journey

    Yeeessss, she looks fabuous. Being health, fitter and stronger is ALWAYS a better option. For those not blessed with that super metabolism, discipline is the answer not tea. Let’s stop deceving ourselves that bigger is better – it’s not when covered with layers of fat that shorten your life span. I had a similar reaction recently to a stressful period and I have to say I’ve never felt better and although I never had lots to loose, I am keen to maintain. Carrying fat around your midriff is not safe.

  17. Ummmm

    August 5, 2016 at 1:53 pm

    This entire post feels like a thirst-trap.

    To each his own. If she likes what she sees in mirror then good
    I am 5ft with big nyansh, aiming to be voluptuous petite curvy like Kim, I’ll hate to be skinny like Kourtney. I told my personal trainer excercise to slim my thighs and not loose my round ass. As for abs lucky me flat tummy big ass runs in my family. I can easily get a six pack in 8weeks. Easy piezy. My big thighs are my main problem. Nothing fits, everything needs to be altered

    Yea Right, HER body, so your opinion does not matter, keep it to yourself.

    WOW! WOW! I am totally totally jealous! what an impressive transformation… go go girl…. hopefully, some of us get on the program.. to think she was bigger than me by 10kg but has done it beautifully

    From these pictures ,I prefer the old Amaka .. but hey that’s just me and my opinion, dont shoot me yet. If this works for her ,fine. I couldn’t help but notice how effortlessly beautiful she was in the former pictures but the recent ones seems like shes trying too hard to be fine lol..
    Beautiful babe

    When your weight loss shows too much around your neck and shoulders like a starving refugee at a camp, that’s not a good look. She’s single abi? Well I can guarantee her most men will prefer the former.

    Wait a minute isn’t this the girl I always see hanging with Ebube Nwagbo? Oh ok so I guess Ebube too lost weight same way huh and Ini edo too. Okay ohhhh 🙂
