Rose was 50, frustrated with her weight for a long time.
Rose was 50, frustrated with her weight for a long time. Menopause had thrown her for an extra loop. For years, she had tried to lose the weight, trying one fad diet after the other, nothing seemed to work long term. The results were temporary at best. Her metabolism had become ‘soft’ and unresponsive after years of ‘yo yo’ dieting. And to top it off her body stored fat like nobody’s business.
We started with measurements and body fat %, not weight. We changed her training to focus on body strengthening and shaping which was one of her goals. We added a bit more structure into her meals (timing, portions, and more nutrient dense foods). With these simple changes, her body learned to ‘let go’ of the weight nd she was seeing shape in her body, feeling stronger and more confident. Her posture changed and she felt good. She is once again enjoying carbs in moderation. No guilt. She eats to nourish her body and allows herself her favourite foods in moderation when and how she wants. There is no ‘cheating’ because now she listens to what her body needs. This goes for exercise too, we train harder when the energy is there. Lighter with more volume when it’s not. And we mix it up. This keeps her metabolism stoked and her body (and spirit)happy…no suffering.
Rose’s journey is a lifelong strategy that is simple and sustainable, and fits her goals and her life! Bravo Rose.
