I didn't purge, but boy did I binge.
My journey to understanding and overcoming issues with my weight started way back in high school
I struggled with my weight since I was a teenager. I am no stranger to binging, starving myself, and dieting. In fact, my friends and I used to have binging sleepovers. We called it ‘porking out’. Honestly, I am not sure what I was more excited about - hanging out with my friends or pigging out! I remember lamenting “wouldn’t it be amazing if junk food made you skinny and healthy food made you fat?”.
I never would have guessed that my fantasy would one day become more possible than I could imagine. I know it sounds too good to be true. I once thought that too.
Back then I used to say food was the devil. And I meant it because it felt like food was ruining my life.
One of my weekend rituals - before starting yet another diet on Monday - was to buy a bacon double cheeseburger and fries at Mc Donalds, plus a chocolate bar, chips and a Mc Cain cake from 7 Eleven for dessert. All just so that I could get my 'fill' before Monday - after which I would starve myself and do aerobics (think back to the days of VHS, Susan Powter and Denise Austin!).
To top it off, I would buy at minimum 8 fashion magazines (Teen, Seventeen, YM, Sassy, Vogue, Cosmo, Glamour and Elle) and then rent a movie with a beautiful thin Hollywood actress in it - probably to punish myself by comparison and motivate me to start my diet.
Back then, I thought you had to exercise yourself to death and eat like a rabbit to lose weight.
Of course raw carrots, celery and iceberg lettuce didn’t sound fun, sexy or glamorous at all. At the time, I didn't even think it was possible to enjoy eating food and actually maintain a healthy weight (hence food being the devil).
Fast forward to today, I eat the most nutritious, luxurious and delicious foods. I eat way more decadently than ever and stay slim without counting calories and exercising.
I was shocked to discover that the diet gurus have had it wrong all along with the whole 'eat less, move more' approach of calorie counting, which is why 97% percent of dieters fail - no one wants to exercise themselves to death or deprive themselves for life!
Eventually, I refused to diet and instead embarked upon a journey to discover the truth about health and weight loss. I discovered that healthy food is actually way more delicious than any junk food - and that when you know what you are doing in the kitchen, you can make and eat any treat to your heart's desire without getting fat.
It turns out that all of your sinfully delicious favourites can be turned into angelic alternatives.
You've come to the right lady if you are done with the hellish world of fad diets, starving, deprivation and slaving away at the gym and ready for the heaven of finally being able to eat whatever you want without gaining weight.
It turns out that the fantasy is real. You really can eat cake and lose weight.
I dropped 12 dress sizes eating myself sexy and you can too!
I can't wait to show you!
