For the past few years I have slowly been gaining weight. My attitude was always that I would “work out a little harder” to lose that extra weight, although that never happened. I was injured at the end of October, and as a result of the injury could not exercise. My weight gain accelerated and I didn’t have the “work out harder” lie to rely on anymore. I finally got to a point where I knew I had to change something, and after seeing the results of everyone on this program, decided to give it a try. I couldn’t be happier with the results.
I lost weight at the beginning of the 12 weeks without doing much activity, showing that it really is more about what you eat vs how hard you workout. Over the weeks, I was able to exercise more and more. Although part of it was due to the normal healing process, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I started feeling better as I was eating better and losing weight. I truly believe that I would not be as far along in my recovery if I did not do this program.
- The whole process was a great learning experience and many of my learnings are similar to what I’ve read from other’s testimonials:
- Planning is key, and if you plan I feel hitting the macros is not that onerous of a challenge
- Having a plan allowed me to easily cut out my biggest downfall in the past – mindless eating. I never realized how much that was sabotaging my efforts in the past.
- I was never hungry and sometimes was eating when I wasn’t hungry in order to hit the macros – very counter intuitive
- Eat a lot of protein
I learned about portion size and what kinds of foods are good for which kind of marcos
I’m very happy with the end results, but I also enjoyed the entire process – the direction, advice, encouragement.
