As a child I was a little chubby, as a teenager I became stocky and after that things got out of hand. And not because of a slow metabolism, heavy bones etcetera. No, things got out of hand because I ate too much, and I ate too much of the wrong things in particular. I didn’t move enough and this plunged me into a spiral of growing overweight. When the scale tipped over 140 kg (I don’t exactly know how much I weighed, but the scale ends at 140kg). I knew it was time for a change. I tried every diet under the sun, some worked but I ended up losing and gaining weight like a jo-jo. This all changed when I started to follow the Prodimed diet, I wasn’t very hungry and I kept my muscle mass. What really helped was when I changed my diet counsellor and went to Beauté Totale. They provided personal attention, support and encouragement for the tough moments. Providing me with answers on all the questions I have. They provided me with good recipes, but most importantly they provided me with a diet counsellor that really put energy in what I needed to get to a healthy weight. This all contributed to me reaching a weight of 65kg. I really can’t believe I’ve managed it. It takes a little getting used to my new body, but it feels good. Now I have entered a new phase, the phase of maintaining my weight, but also the phase of enjoying my new body and what comes with it. I’d like to tell everyone who is struggling with these issues that you deserve a good diet as well as a good diet counsellor, if you have a counsellor that you don’t click with, I recommend finding a different one. This will make the fight so much easier. This was the key to a healthy weight to me.
