A few years ago, I was stuck on the dieting rollercoaster. I knew exactly what I 'should' eat but couldn’t seem to stick to it.
I was either super healthy or eating ice-cream straight from the container. There was no in between. Honestly? I had tried every diet, program and meal plan. But after a decade of waking up every day and ‘trying to be good’, I weighed more than when I started.
I realised that I didn't want to spend the rest of my life stressed about my weight and feeling guilty for eating something ‘bad’. I decided to get Back to Basics instead.
I adopted a completely different approach to eating, that doesn’t involve counting points, obsessing or cutting out foods.
Within four years, I had lost 20kg. But that turned out to be just an added bonus. Now, my life isn't controlled by food. I eat well to feel healthy and energised. I love my body and myself. My health, not my weight comes first and I exercise because I enjoy it, not for punishment. And I no longer feel the need to console myself with food. Best of all, I feel so comfortable in my skin….
You can heal you relationship with food and stop struggling with your weight - even if you've been dieting for years.
