Safe to say I've made some gains: physical AND mental. #StrengthFeed
Changing my mindset was hard: understanding that eating MORE can help you achieve your goals can be confusing. Especially through seeing your weight on the scales changing. This is 3 years difference, and 15-20 pounds difference (I'm heavier now🙌🏼💪🏼) #HealthBuilding ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👈🏼On the left I was lost: I was terrified of food, I was weak, and my anxiety was controlling my life. I had panic disorder. I was a cardio bunny and only saw exercise as a way to burn calories, and I was massively under eating (and then binge eating on 'clean'* foods). If you are struggling with an eating disorder PLEASE seek expert help: trust me, you will NOT regret it. 🙏🏼 Please realise that eating 300 calories per day is NOT healthy and is highly disordered eating: it is NOT good/healthy and it is very dangerous.
*There is no such thing as a 'clean' food. Sure, some foods are more micronutrient dense than others, but eating foods which aren't micronutrient dense is OKAY! Everything. In. Moderation. 🙌🏼
👉🏼Now: I have educated myself and LEARNED so much. I weight train 4 or 5 times per week and eat over 6x the amount I was eating on the left! I do HIIT once or twice per week if I feel like it, but if I don't then I don't stress about it! It's all about what works for YOU and your lifestyle! Remember: your goals HAVE to fit in with your lifestyle/job/uni/etc. My lifestyle means I travel a LOT: on the left, this would stress me out massively. I was so obsessive over eating MY foods and training in an exact way, but learning how to ADAPT is so, so important for long term success!
