My Story & Experience With Eating & Exercise

I have gone through it all, yo-yo dieting, IIFYM, and even binge eating. It took me 2 years to figure out that when it comes down to it, it’s how you approach the way you look at a diet. I don’t look at food as “good” or “bad” but rather by its nutritional value. There is no secret diet, no magic pill, no detox juice and no body wrap that will magically make you reach your goal to a different physique or body composition. What it comes down to is how much you eat and how much you move. These two factors are most important. My approach is a whole foods approach while enjoying the treats I love in moderation. I find this has worked the best for me. I typically go to the gym 5 times a week and lift weights because it’s what I prefer. I also try to go for a 30-minute walk on days I don’t do physical activity. I love walks and enjoy being outside but if you’d rather walk on the treadmill or go on the stair master, do what you enjoy! It’s about finding the simplicity that works best for you. The reason you might consider choosing a whole foods approach is that it keeps you full longer, you can eat more because most plant-based foods have more volume and fewer calories, you are maximizing your energy for better performance and lastly, you are BETTERING your health which should honestly be your main focus. Like I said before to do what works for you in order to reach your goal. In the end, it’s your body, not anyone else’s.
