When taking your Before-and-After photographs, it is important that you use the guidelines below and follow the tips in the video: Please send the images via WhatsApp to   082 976 6161 or as attachments by email to photos@truefatloss.co.za



  • Take photographs of the FRONT, SIDE and BACK.
  • Tip: photograph the front twice — once holding up your mobile device or newspaper in front of you with the date clearly visible and the second one without any device or newspaper.
  • Take the picture in a room with good lighting and a high-quality camera.
  • Take BEFORE-and-AFTER photos in nearly identical conditions.
  • Take pictures in front of a bare wall with white or light background.
  • Try taking an AFTER photo weekly to see progression of fat loss over time.
  • Take a full body (including your head), front facing picture while standing up.
  • Use pictures with date stamps.
  • ONLY report results from the 40 Day Meltdown Challenge.


  • Wear baggy, loose fitting clothes making it difficult to see fat loss results.
  • Take pictures that cover your face or cut off your head.
  • Take your picture in front of a cluttered background.
  • Take pictures in a dark room.
  • Twist and turn your body during pictures.
  • Use pictures of results from other weight loss systems.
