- Her mom had a weight problem as well as several other family members.
BUYING INTO DIET CULTURE
- Amy was always on a diet, she went to weight loss camps, she spent all of this money, and nothing helped her.
- She still bought into the moderation and calorie fantasy.
- She tried every fad diet there was and never stopped to think: maybe it’s more than just these diets.
- THIRTY FIVE TIMES she tried Weight Watchers.
- Several years ago, though, she realized she needed a health and lifestyle change, not some unsustainable diet.
- Within two weeks of eating low carb, she felt so different.
- She was satiated.
- She ended up cancelling her surgery and she’s so glad she did.
- When she began, she kept it super simple.
- This is the best way to start.
