About

Assalamu Alaikum,

I’m Rushdhi Ismail, the founder of Lean and Healthy.

I’ve embarked on a huge mission. My mission is to help the Muslim Ummah get leaner, stronger and healthier, bi’idnillah!

I know, it sounds like a pretty big mission, but that’s how any mission starts in the beginning.

My Weight Loss Journey

My story begins 20 years ago when I was struggling to lose weight. In the last decade, I have tried more weight-loss and diet programmes than I can possibly remember.

Some of the methods I’ve tried include:

  • Counting calories
  • Weighing my meals
  • A 30 day flat belly crash diet
  • Atkins and Weight Watchers

You might be wondering these diets worked. Yes, they did. But there was one catch – I was bound to them for life. Every time I stopped a diet, I would put on more weight than I had started with. Every time I quit dieting, each programme would taunt and haunt me every time.

What made the cycle of losing and gaining worse was that my life became so food-and-weight-loss centric I forgot my priorities. Priorities like prepping for my meeting in the Aakhira; being a father to three gorgeous princesses and being the significant other to an amazing wife.

In my own pursuit of becoming lean and healthy for life, I ended up learning nutrition and did not stop until I was good enough to be certified as a nutrition and exercise coach.

Since then, I’ve been coaching people offline and online in more than 30 countries around the world in 5 continents, Alhamdulillah!
