Taking care of my body

I have been following a low carb, high fat diet and have been feeling fantastic. I started this journey at the end of January this year and have been steadily losing weight due to my body running more effectively. I have lost a total of 35 lbs. just eating real food.

I eat when I am hungry and I eat until I am full. I do not count calories, I do not count carbs, I do not count anything! I choose to eat real foods, that means I have dropped most boxed foods. It’s not as hard as it seems. I do not eat pasta, I do not eat bread, I choose full fat condiments and it’s been great. I can delve into the science a bit more later on.

Real, full-fat foods are a great energy source for our bodies. Some days I feel like I am eating all day and that is ok! I just keep on making the healthier choices. There are also days where I hardly eat and that is ok too! I am learning to listen to my body and it has really been paying off.

Do I cheat? Yes I do! This is not a diet to me, it’s a lifestyle change. I know that this sounds cliché, but it’s true. If I choose to eat a food outside of what I have deemed the norm, it’s because it is worth it for me that day! Cheating was once a weekend thing for me, now it’s a single item choice any time it comes up. I was super strict in the first few weeks and have felt the way food effect my energy and mood. Now I choose healthier and happier me day to day.

I would love to chat with you all more about this. It’s been a short journey this far but so rewarding!
