As a child I was overweight, and got teased back in grade school. I remember as far back as 8 years old, crying to my Mom that I was "fat."
By my early teens I was all-too-familiar with the world of dieting. I spent all of my years as a teen constantly on fad diets, restricting myself, then eventually getting frustrated and “falling off track” and binging… Making me feel worse than ever. It was a vicious cycle.
My freshman year of college my diet consisted of cereal, M&M’s, muffins, Pop Tarts, pizza, diet soda, vodka and sugary coffee drinks. I didn’t see the inside of a gym ONCE that year…
By the time I came home from school in the summer I was MISERABLE about how I looked. I had put on 25 pounds!!!
I started trying to eat better and lose weight but the truth is, I didn’t have a clue about proper diet and nutrition.
Every diet attempt ended in failure. And with every failed diet (followed by a binge) my metabolism slowed a bit more, and my spirits sank to new lows.
Feeling like you have to give up your favorite foods, or sacrifice taste for a fit body is NO way to live.
I was tired of giving up my favorite foods, or feeling like I could only have them as an occasional "cheat meal."
This book encompasses my philosophies and my approach on how to eat for a fit, healthy body for a lifetime.
I believe in eating wholesome, nutrient-dense, minimally processed (or “clean”) foods about 80-90% of the time…
But eating right does not mean having to eat bland, tasteless chicken & broccoli all the time.
If you enjoy what you are eating then you do…
