Five years ago, I lost 50 pounds of fat rather quickly while on a grain free, sugar free eating protocol, along with hormones. I only ate wild caught fish and seafood, as well as lots of vegetables. The number 1 helpful tool for me was drinking a gallon of water a day. When I drink lots of water (with lemon) I can identify whether I am truly hungry, or just socially and emotionally hungry. Plus, I learned that the way fat leaves our body is through perspiration and urination. More water in means more water out.
Afterwards, I studied everything I could from cutting edge scientists, fitness professionals, podcasts, doctors, and authors. There was no way I was going to allow the weight and fat to come back.
Friends and family began asking me to help them as well. And so I did.
For me, this was a springboard into the Paleo, primal, high-fat, ancient ways of eating real, whole foods. Eating a high-fat very good fat diet, and grass fed, wild-caught everything, as well as drinking a gallon of water and sleeping 9-10 hours a night has kept me living like our ancestors. I do yoga and meditation daily, I walk a lot and hike a lot. I also waitress in the evenings, so I lift heavy things and walk six hours an evening. I live by the 80/20 rule.
I teach people why we should not eat anything that has eaten grains, how to give up processed foods and sugars, and how to have fun while doing it all. My workshops are always free because I reach seniors and lower economic communities.
After helping others through my workshops, participants have come back to me with stories of their healing from diabetes, gout, high blood pressure, eczema, allergies, fat loss, and renewed energy.
I am passionate about helping others achieve what I have, as somebody who at age 51, changed their life for the better on many levels. If I could do this journey, so can you.
