I’m an ordinary girl who has been fighting about 15 years with being overweight, then fell in love with science and lifting heavy things at the age of 30.
I realised that the best diet is the diet which you can turn into your lifestyle and stick to it long term, without any major restrictions.
I remember when my partner sent me my first science book and I said, “I won’t be reading that crap”, as it wasn’t something I was interested in. How times change. I swapped the magazines for studies and nutrition, training books and found a massive passion in it.
I started to make healthy recipes and the overweight girl has turned into a fit chick.
Doing something with love and passion is an amazing help on a fit journey. Some days lifting weights it’s not just to get fit, it’s therapy as well.
It’s maybe easier to stick to a diet which someone designs for you, and it’s definitely a great start to a healthy lifestyle, but learning what your body really needs and turning it into lifestyle is more pleasurable for long term.
