Eat More Fat: How to lose weight eating what you're not supposed to
Tue, March 21, 2017, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM PDT
I've struggled with my weight for a long time. I can remember my senior year of high school, when I hit my all-time high of 150. Well, it was my all-time high then.
Thankfully, I got Tae-Bo tapes for Christmas that year and I fell in love with I kickboxing. Jabs, kicks, uppercuts, it was all so fun. It didn't take long for me to shed several pounds and feel a little better about myself.
However, I eventually gained weight back, lost it again for a brief period of time in college - taking a volleyball class and a Total Fitness (LOTS of running) class at the same time will do that to anyone. Had four kids, gained it all back plus some. Got inspired to get fit and lost a bunch of weight then hit super a stressful period in my life and gained it all back.
Over the last decade, I've been active off and on, with yoga, walking and (very infrequent) running being my main sources of exercise. A little over a year ago, though, I got tired of the on-again, off-again cycle and decided to start doing CrossFit with my husband.
Best. Decision. Ever.
I lost inches, but not a single pound in 13 months. It didn't matter, though. I was so much stronger. And I felt GOOD.
But it definitely drove home the truth behind the saying, "You can't out train a bad diet."
So I decided it was time to level-up and tackled my diet. I wanted to get more lean without losing any of the hard-won muscle mass and I knew I needed to make some changes to what I was eating.
I've had a pretty good diet over the last several years. We eat whole foods made from scratch and, wellness-wise, I was pretty healthy. However, I knew that most of weight loss is attributed to diet so I started tracking what I was eating.
Using a free phone app, I started keeping track of everything I was eating. EVERYTHING.
What I found was that while I was eating healthy foods, I was:
a) Eating far more than I should
b) My diet was high in foods that were keeping the weight on
So I started tweaking my diet, using some of my favorite internet resources and that same app. Do you know what happened? I melted. Like, I lost 20 pounds in two months.
Now, I've done this once before a few years ago, but it wasn't sustainable. I had only addressed one part of the equation and, because of that, felt hungry all the time and kept binging on the wrong foods. Needless to say, I couldn't keep it up and gained all the weight back.
That's not the case anymore.
That perpetual hunger-binge cycle is over. My hypoglycemia issues I've since I was a kid? Gone. At first, it was hard. But it all shifted when I figured out some simple hacks to make it work.
Now, twenty pounds later, I've gotten faster at my workouts, increased how much weight I can lift and I'm wearing clothes I never thought I'd fit into. It seriously works, y'all.
Since making these changes, I've gotten a LOT of questions about how I did it. What did I eat? What did I change? What apps was I using? How on earth did I make it work as a busy mom?
So, rather than continue to answer all these questions over and over again :) I thought I'd put it all in one place with resources and tips to help you on your journey.
