Upon meeting with @jereymilongpre from @thefitnesslab.ca we went over my eating habits, foods I usually ate, the times when I ate, etc. I kept thinking why does this matter? Give me a meal plan and I will execute it. That is what I was used to. But Jereymi didn’t budge. We logged my foods, and then began changing my habits. Jereymi never measured/calculated my calories because he didn’t believe in doing that right away in my case. He focused on me eating whole foods, clean foods, and making sure I was fueling my body with enough nutrients. This was all new to me. I was so used to solely focusing on a calorie number to see change. This was a completely different approach. Jereymi focused on getting to the underlying issues, which were my habits, and wanted to create something more sustainable. He recognized my yo-yo tendancies, and didn’t want to repeat what I had been doing for the last 5 years. So Jereymi made me a plan where I was eating 2 meals and 2 shakes per day. I was hesitant at first, I kept thinking how will I lose weight if I’m eating so much. I questioned him lots because I didn’t understand it. Jereymi took the time to explain things to me, sending me videos, articles, and answering all my questions. I trusted him, and it began to pay off. He helped me understand nutrition at a much deeper level. I wasn’t starving myself like I was used to, in fact I was actually always quite full and still losing weight and seeing my body change. This blew me away. There were no cravings, no gulity feelings, and no binge eating. Jereymi’s approach incorporated foods I liked, allowed for “fun” foods (not cheat days) and ultimately has been sustainable.
