Ditch the diets, get in the best shape of your life, for the rest of your life, with me, your Coach, Aqilah Norazman.
It’s time to stop yo-yo dieting and start changing your life for good, 1-habit at a time
How can I be so confident? Let me tell you how.
In 2010, I was diagnosed as being clinically obese. I was standing at 84kg and I fell sick every few weeks, needing to take time off work and school. I was jumping from diets to diets, trying out numerous plans such as the Low-fat Diet, Paleo, Meal Replacements and so much more.
But it never worked.
Until I decided to study what is right for the body, and get myself a mentor. That’s when things started to change a whole 360 degrees for me. That’s when I started to lose 20 kilos in eight month and changed my life forever.

Now let me tell you this.
Even if you don’t like your body and how it looks like right now. Even if you overeat and run to the nearest cupcake shop when you’re stressed. And even if you tried every single diet there is in this planet and failed.
You have the power in you to become healthier, happier and with so much confidence.
I know this because I’ve been in your shoes. I know this because I know what it’s like to fail over and over again. I know this because I used to hate my body as much as you do.
And you are not alone.
Over the last two years since 1-Habit Nutrition started in Singapore, we have helped hundreds of Singaporeans change the way they eat, move and live without any crash dieting and exercise. Just look at these people I’ve had the honour to coach.
These women are not fitness models. They are not someone with better genetics than you. And they are not multi-millionaires who can afford the money and time in the world.
Some of them are working adults, some are stay at home mums with three little kids.
Some are single, some are married.
Some work a 9 to 5 job, some does shift work.
Some are in their 20s, a few are even in their 50s.
All of them live in Asia, or more specifically, Singapore.
They are all different women, all from different walks of life. But despite that, they have one thing in common.
They all have failed jumping from one diet to another and they feel tired and terrible.
They know what it’s like to feel tired spending money on just another diet and yet failed.
They feel terrible for the amount of years they’ve spent hating their bodies, and they know it’s time to make a change.
But over time, and after putting their trust in me and my team of coaches, they developed a healthy relationship with food, exercise and most importantly, their bodies and themselves.
Even with a very busy schedule. Even with tons of responsibilities at work and home. And even if life was a struggle every day.
They made just one simple choice: To trust me to take care of their nutrition and exercise for many months and even years.
And over those times, they learned how to:
- Sustainably lose weight without needing crazy diet pills or meal replacement shakes.
- Learning how to make good nutrition choices without dieting, and then binge eating later.
- Include healthy eating habits and exercise into her busy schedule without sacrificing her life.
- Treat herself and her body better without needing to follow a diet again.
And in the next few minutes, I will show you how they can do it, and how you can too.
Welcome to 1-Habit Nutrition
Here is something I am intensely proud of: We do things very differently in 1-Habit Nutrition.
After training and coaching so many clients from all walks of life, some of them you’ve seen above, I’ve managed to solve the puzzle and answer one very big question – why do most people go on diets and still fail?
I’ve researched, cracked my brain and surveyed so many people just to find the answer. But specifically and most recently, I asked my first batch of coaching clients one very simple question – “How did you feel before you started coaching with me?” Yes, these are the people you’ve seen above, who’ve gone through tremendous changes after coaching.
Here are their raw and most honest answers.
“I feel like giving up… I’ve tried so many diets and programs and nothing has worked over the long term”
“I needed accountability. I know how to be healthy and I know I needed to exercise but I hate my body so much I don’t think I can do it myself.”
“I guess this is how I’m going to be for the rest of my life… So why bother changing?”
Can you relate to that?
I know for sure I can. I know what it’s like to feel terrible about myself. And one reason for that is because we expect too much from ourselves.
We have high standards. We beat ourselves up too much for being lazy and incompetent and when things go way out of hand, we decide to do something about it. That’s when we start to Google for diet plans and books and start proclaiming to the whole world that you’re going to change your life.
But sadly, that positive energy does not last for long. Without accountability and help, we will run out of steam. And then we get carried away back to our old habits, self-pity and laziness and the cycle repeats itself.
“Oh I’ve been on that diet!”
Another thing I asked my coaching clients is their history with diets and what they’ve tried in the past.
And here’s what we gathered. Most of my clients have tried at least THREE of these below before working with me:
- Calorie counting and MyFitnessPal
- Personal training
- Group workouts
- Low-carb, low-fat, low-calorie diets
- Instagram workouts from a certain trainer
- Slimming centres
And yet they do not get the results they want. Which led me back to my first big question – “Why do these people go on these diets with specific exercise programs and meal plans and yet still fail?”
I knew there was something stopping them from getting to where they want.
I knew there was something. So I researched, interviewed hundreds of my followers and got three main problems.
1. They try to do everything on their own.
Let’s face it. Something sad happens as we grow older. There’s not many people around us who truly cares.
When we were younger and in school, we have tons of friends, BFFs and besties who are always there for us. But as we grow older, most of those relationships tend to slip away. We grow out of relationships and sometimes, we just part ways.
That’s when most of us try to do things ourselves, especially when it comes to exercise and eating.
That’s when we start reading books and searching through the Internet for answers.
And that’s when we go out and try to do everything on our own.
It’s great and all, but often we fail. Here’s what really happens when we keep doing things ourselves.
- We take on too much.
- We start really strong and then give up.
- We feel terrible because we can’t stick with it.
- We return back to our old self.
- We start again with another diet when we feel okay again.
- We repeat the cycle.
Now here’s the truth: We know it’s better if we have someone there for us. We know it’s better if we can turn to someone especially when it comes to a lifelong change. We just don’t do it.
2. The solutions they go to does not dig deep enough for long-term change.
Temporary solutions that doesn’t solve the problems from the inside.
That’s what we normally do. Let’s think about it. Those methods I’ve mentioned above makes us feel good for a while, but rarely do they help us change our lives from the inside.
Want to count calories? Here’s an app you can use.
Want to workout in a gym? Here sign up for this membership.
Want to lose weight fast? Here replace two meals with this chocolate shake thing.
The problem with these temporary solutions?
They do work, but only when things in your life are going smoothly. But think about it.
What happens to our gym membership when things get busy?
What happens when you’re stressed at work and you really don’t want to drink those shakes?
What happens when you’re just not motivated to do anything?
What happens? We fall out of the bandwagon and all our hard work is over. We go back to where it started.
The thing is, when I first started out in my career as a trainer and a coach, I used to use these temporary solutions. I gave meal plans. Taught my clients some meal tips and the latest research.
It works. They love what they’ve learned from me. But they were having a very difficult time changing their habits.
Which is why when I noticed this, I started to learn how I can help them better. And that’s when Coaching was born.
It’s a system. It’s a step by step, easy to follow process, something you can follow even when life gets in the way.
3. They follow an “expert” advice.
There’s a good percentage of us that don’t really do things ourselves. We do go out and get help. But the problem is, we go and get it from the wrong people.
I put the word “expert” in quotation marks for one reason and it’s definitely not to doubt the knowledge and expertise of certain people in the fitness industry.
I’m definitely not saying that people who are knowledgable and well-respected in the fitness industry is fake.
The reason why I put that in quotes is because there’s a difference between an expert and a coach.
And here’s where I want you to know.
An expert is charming and knows how to talk, give advice, present, write articles and so on about their beliefs and their ideas. A coach is a guide on your side. We listen, learn and adjust. The spotlight is not on them. It’s on their clients.
When you’re trying to change, you don’t need to know what worked for someone else. You need to know what will work for you, based on research, constant testing and experimenting and feedback.
Sadly, most of us get help from experts and rarely do we have a coach beside us.
Which is what makes 1-Habit Nutrition different too: We coach our clients. We listen to you and understand you fully before even giving you any solutions. And when that happens, there’s a lot of adjustments on the fly and adjustments. So it works for you.
I’m not going to give you the solution of what works for me. We do it for you.
