‘If you run as much as you run your mouth you’d be smaller’- Anerlisa Muigai

We all know Anerlisa for her body transformation, well this morning, she threw tantrums at people who have been attacking her for constantly loosing and adding weight.

Anerlisa said she added weight in a span of five years. But she managed to lose a lot of that weight through living a healthy life. Her weight loss journey was definitely not easy and because of that she created an app that would help other people struggling with their weight.

‘People mistook my wife for my sister’ Mvita MP speaks on why he hit the gym to lose 46 kgs

Mvita MP Abdulswamad Shariff, is considered Kenya’s fittest legislator.

However it wasn’t always this way. The member of Parliament, who has left women dying for a piece of him, has battled with excess weight until a trip to Dubai made him snap out of his comfort zone.

In 2014, Shariff was in Dubai looking forward to sky diving, unfortunately the guides dropped the bombshell that he was too overweight for the balloon to manage his weight.

“They said, ‘You are overweight. You won’t defy gravity and the parachute won’t hold you’,” he recalls.

Mvita MP

Most parachutes are made to hold up to 120kg for men. If that weight is exceeded, the gear is much more likely to tear, to break lines or even to disintegrate during the course of deployment. At 130kg, Abdulswamad would simply put his life in danger.

And fitness is important, too. The most difficult and potentially dangerous part of the jump is coming in to land. He could easily break his ankles.

“In 2014, sometimes people also mistook my wife for my daughter,” says the MP, now the Public Investment Committee chairman.

This was one of his lowest moments in life. But it was also the moment he took complete hold of his life, making decisions that have inspired thousands of people across Kenya.

“I immediately decided to live healthily. The most difficult part for anyone is mental, not the physical part. But you have to be disciplined to do it,” Abdulswamad says.

He slowly dropped from 130 to now 84kg, mostly muscle weight. Abdulswamad says his regime involved physical training and proper diet.

Where he was previously chubby, the second-term MP is now lithe and one the most vibrant politicians in Parliament.

His wife began training earlier than him. But soon, Abdulswamad hit the gym, training five or six days a week. Each session lasted one hour, sometimes two.

“I also completely cut out carbohydrates. But now I eat carbs moderately. But you should not blindly follow what I’m doing but seek advice from a nutritionist.

Weight-loss specialist Dr Nyambura Mburu told the Star it is important for people seeking to live healthy to work with a nutritionist because all bodies are unique.

Weight, she says, is carefully regulated by hormones, and people do not control it any more than they control their heart rates.

“This is automatic, under the influence of hormones. Our weight has nothing to do with how much we eat or how little with exercise. Weight gain is a hormonal imbalance, not a caloric imbalance. Insulin is the major hormone that drives weight gain. The other is Cortisol, to a lesser extent,” she explains.


She says high insulin, excessive cortisol, insulin resistance or a combination of all three causes weight gain.

“Identifying the right trigger for a particular individual is the key to weight loss,” says the UK-based Kenyan medic.

“The logical treatment is to regain the hormonal balance by adopting strategies that lower insulin, lower cortisol and reverse insulin resistance. This is why a personalised strategy for weight loss makes sense. It is not just about losing weight. It is about changing how your body works, to keep the weight off — for good,” she says.

Dr Nyambura, who operates a London-based weight management consultancy called Insulean, says as well as frustrating problems like breathlessness, fatigue and joint pain, excessive weight gain can lead to severe psychological problems and serious health conditions.

“Losing weight, therefore, confers a whole host of physical and psychological benefits,” she said.

Abdulswamad also believes in professional support,he however discourages people from checking their weight too frequently to avoid disappointments.

“When they train, people think their trainers do not know. You should listen to them. You also cannot defy science. Your body will react to how you treat it.

You get demoralized if you weigh yourself daily. What you did to your body in 30 years cannot change in six months.”

Abdulswamad encourages people considered fat, saying sometimes their bodies respond better.

He wishes he began early enough,he is however grateful for the benefits that come with working out

“You should stop procrastinating. I regret I didn’t do this early in my life. I have now changed from fat to packs. I wore trousers size 44 but now I’m size 34.

The benefits keep pouring in. “I can work 16 hours a day. Sometimes I go to eight events in a day without fatigue. It was impossible to do that in the past,” he says. “I also sleep deeply for six hours every day.”

At 44 years, he feels more vibrant in his legislative duties and in the community.

“I’m finding deeper happiness and value for life now than ever before,” the legislator says.
