|Healthy eating results!!|
Deciding to stop dieting was a big deal for me as I am a diet queen, I am not naturally slim so I have been on many diets to help control my weight. Post wedding and honeymoon I packed on a sweet 10 pounds and was desperate to lose it. For the first time most diets did not give me the quick results I wanted so I started counting calories like a maniac and limiting my intake to around 800cals a day with 1.5hrs workouts sessions. The result were migraines, irritability and a massive BINGE on day 4, I have never really binged before so I was surprised when I felt this need to eat everything and anything. I even sneaked out of bed when my husband was asleep at 1am and ATTACKED a jar of NUTELLA! This was a new low for me :(.
I woke up the next morning and decided not to beat myself up or starve instead I decided to make a lifestyle change so that it does not happen again. I decide to stop dieting, restricting any food groups or counting calories. I was apprehensive what if I do this and put on a lot of weight? Then remembered the words of Jamie Eason(fitness model and coach) trust your body, treat it right and it will let go of the fat. Sounds quite simple but I did it, I started eating carbs and it gave me sustained energy during long walks and I ate smaller but frequent meals up to 5 times a day and it worked I've lost 4.8lbs and I have 2.6lbs to go!!!

I am quite happy about this lifestyle change and I to encourage you to love, trust your body and say NO to fad diets.
Have you made any lifestyle changes this year? I would love to hear about it and let us encourage each other to be best version of ourselves.
Have a wonderful weekend!
