I was trying to improve my body composition. I was working out and dieting and not seeing results.
I workout 3 times per week and on the weekends my hobbies include kayaking, hiking, snowboarding during the winter.
My biggest challenge was letting go of the fear of eating so much food. When I started the reverse process and my macros were being increased, I was shocked by the amount of calories I was eating and I was so fearful of eating so much food. Then I started noticing how much more energy I had and how I had better performance on my workouts.
My biggest success I would say was learning all the things I can eat. I was always under the impression that I had to cut certain foods out of my diet if I was going to be successful and going through this process has totally changed my mindset on that! And of course the change in my body composition.
I can eat what I want as long as it fits in my macros. I actually eat more things now that I avoided before because I thought they were not healthy. For example, I eat way more nuts now.
Fruit, nuts, granola.
I don’t eat a lot of meat so I supplement with protein powder a lot. My protein powder is plant based and I can get different yummy flavors.
The accountability. The fact that I have to check in weekly helps keep myself accountable. Also, when I have questions or concerns, she there to explain everything and give me peace of mind.
Absolutely! I have had great results and still working on more! I have the energy to get through the day and workout and enjoy my hobbies. I have learned so much about food.
