Once you develop healthy lifestyle habits, you experience how being healthy and fit feels you never want to go back being sick, tired and overweight
I had been overweight from three years old until 30. Tried all the diets under the sun, but only had short-term results, and after getting off the diet put the weight back on and sometimes even more. After I read Dr. Mark Hyman’s UltraMetabolism book, about nine years ago, I learned how to eat healthy and how to make healthy eating a life-long habit, because one thing I have learned from my life-long dieting, is that you have to get on a diet that you can keep up for the rest of your life, otherwise it’s a struggle. I was sick and tired of being overweight and had nothing to lose trying out one more diet, but this time it was the right one; and I have lost about 50 pounds in less than a year.
Kept the weight off for four years, and then I decided to become a vegetarian. For three years, I have been a vegetarian but that didn’t work out for me, as I slowly I started to put some weight back on – about 15 pounds over the three years. In the same time, I had some dental work done – root canals, wisdom teeth pulled out, amalgam filling taken out without any protection (so I got heavy metal poisoning from that), and found mold in my bathroom and bedroom. All of these thing took a toll on my body weight and health. From a holistic doctor’s recommendation, I went on a high-fat, low-carb diet about seven months ago and all things got better, including my weight coming down.
Now, I am on the Eat Fat, Get Thin program and for the first time in my life, I am not hungry all the time. My biggest problem with dieting was my constant hunger, the worst was when I was a vegetarian. Since I began eating lots of healthy fats, my hunger is gone, I never wake up hungry and I never go to bed hungry. I only have three meals a day (before I used to have four to six meals), my portion sizes went down naturally, cravings are gone, energy level has never been this high, and my mental focus is amazing. Healthy eating and regular exercise is a part of my everyday life and my job, too.
Once you develop healthy lifestyle habits and you experience how being healthy and fit feels, you never want to go back to being sick, tired and overweight. Nothing tastes as good as being healthy and fit feels.
