A mother-of-two claims to have transformed her life by losing almost 50 kilos and six dress sizes – without any exercise.
After struggling to lose weight following the birth of her two children, Lenka Kulikova believed she would live out her days as an ‘overweight woman plagued with health issues’.
But everything changed in 2017 when the 36-year-old, from Sydney, discovered 123 Diet, an Australian brand founded by Emma Moroni that promises to help users lose weight with powders and drops that suppress sugar cravings.
Ms Kulikova said the products helped her to reshape her relationship with food and shed 30 kilos in a matter of months.

That loss saw her drop from a size 18-20 to an 8-10, but she wasn’t finished there.
Ms Kulikova restarted the programme for a second time in April 2021 and lost a staggering 18.5kg in just 72 days – bringing her total loss to a remarkable 48.5kg.
‘I never said no to sweets,’ Ms Kulikova recalled.
She said she constantly made unhealthy food choices, bingeing on McDonald’s and cooking indulgent meals laced with butter and cream at home.

Ms Kulikova said her previous experiences with diets had been overwhelmingly negative, calling them ‘ineffective’, ‘unsustainable’ and ‘unhelpful.’
She credits 123 Diet Drops with curbing her sugar cravings and keeping her on track.
The drops – made from green tea extract and gymnemic acids, a sweet tasting substance that suppresses the desire for sugar – are designed to be mixed into a glass of water, three times a day.
Before starting her weight loss journey, Ms Kulikova said she ‘never exercised’ because she found it unenjoyable.

‘I [felt] so heavy. I didn’t have power and I was so lazy,’ she recalled.
But once she began to make healthier food choices, she found herself unintentionally walking more often – although she still hasn’t found a workout or sport that works for her.
When she looks at herself in the mirror, Ms Kulikova said she now sees her ‘amazing’ transformation and is proud of her progress.
‘It’s the best feeling I’ve felt for such a long time,’ Ms Kulikova said.
She added: ‘My turning point was first to feel better for myself, but I also wanted to be more active for family’s sake.’
