I was a massive clean eater, chocolate was a no, sweets? no thank you and bread? You’re having a laugh! I was obsessed with ‘eating clean’ and although I still am in a way since becoming a nutrition coach I have learnt so much. You may have seen in vlogs and blogs that i’m now eating a lot more than I did, i’m now eating what my body needs… & here’s what happened:
I’ve always thought I was a relatively happy person, but unless someone has slipped me a couple doses of happy pills, my family as well as myself have noticed a hugeeeee difference. I’m not having strops & I actually say hi to people in the mornings now…
Now this one isn’t a joke… I don’t nap anymore (WHAAAAAT) & I don’t rely on coffee (WHAAAT X2). I have my usual coffee in the morning because I love it but my mid afternoons slumps are no longer.
I eat them & a lot. My carbs come from a variety of things whether that’s chocolate, rice or sour dough bread – I now eat a lot more and with that, my gut and stomach is happier.
Because of the whole eating more, it also means I can eat more of the yummy stuff. I now have chocolate most days (blog post on this to follow) with 0 guilt!
I feel like I say this every few months, but i’m actually in the best shape i’ve been. I’m thicker but also leaner, i’m more confident and mostly i’m happier.
