How Did I Start Nutrition?
You’ve asked how I started, so here’s my story. I’ll break it down into two parts: nutrition and fitness. I currently sit at 6’ and around 180lbs. I haven’t had weightloss/plastic surgery or used any specific weight loss products on my journey. Instead, I made simple but effective changes to my nutrition and fitness.
When I started in Spring of 2014, I was morbidly obese with blood pressure and thyroid issues at over 300 pounds. I’d failed to get healthy enough times to lose count. I was resigned to being the sore, tired, fat girl for the rest of my life. And then I wasn’t. Something clicked and I realized my life would be what I made it. I’d been through enough failed diets to know what DIDN’T work for me…. so I started there.
When I began, I didn’t have a specific diet plan. I was so nervous this was a temporary change that I didn’t bother adopting anything substantial – nothing I could cling to as doctrine. Instead, I just adjusted my diet. I ate lots of clean foods and removed all starches and processed sugars. I stopped eating out. I stopped getting take out. I stopped buying junk at the grocery store. I stopped having alcoholic drinks with friends. I stopped binging on crap.
That was it. I didn’t under eat or starve myself. Instead, I ate a ton of food but changed what I was eating: Five or six meals 8 to 10 oz of protein (mostly raw, sashimi grade tuna from the fish market down the street – conveniently, one of my favorite foods) with large servings of green vegetables. I drank lots of water. That was it.
I’ve used lots of methods: carb cycling, macro counting, intuitive eating…. but that’s not how I started. I simply stopped eating junk.
