Today, I want to share an amazing story of how just a few weeks can CHANGE your life! Let me introduce you to Elizabeth. I've had the pleasure of following along Elizabeth's journey and keeping up with how quickly her wellness goals were achieved. She's such an inspiration to everyone out there that is tired of not feeling GOOD.
Elizabeth, I'm SO proud of you and I can't wait to see where your journey takes you!
Tell us about yourself!
My name is Elizabeth and I am a 23 year old from good ole Louisville, KY! I’m currently in school getting my doctorate to be a Pediatric Physical Therapist. I am a former college soccer player and I am always on the go – whether it be my morning workouts or afternoon walks.
What was your goal with the 21 Day Intermittent Fasting Challenge?
My goal was the whole 9 yards. I wanted to lose weight, bloat, emotional breakdowns, irregular body systems (PCOS, IBS), and gain a better relationship with food.
What made you want to try the 21 Day Intermittent Fasting Program?
I have tried literally everything else. I did SkinnyMe Tea, Low FODMAP, IIFYM, counted calories religiously not caring about macros, worked out to the point of exhaustion. I always failed – whether it be because I lasted 2 days on whatever new fad diet I was trying or if it was simply because I made it 4 days and then was in tears because it wasn’t working. I needed something that would keep me accountable.
Did you have any hesitations before starting?
I had SO many hesitations. I’ve contemplated Intermittent Fasting prior to seeing your account and always told myself that there was NO way I would ever be able to wait until 10, 11 or even Noon to eat. I am a very routine person and would wake up at 5am to workout, eat breakfast by 7am and then snack at 9, lunch, another snack, another snack, and then dinner and DESSERT. So doing this was living life on the extreme edge for me.
What were the biggest changes you experienced?
There were SO many changes I experienced, but the main ones were my hunger levels, I felt lean (not like some huge inflatable like I usually did), my face = no more breakouts, REGULAR POOPING (huge upgrade from going every 5 days LOL), and lastly – I didn’t crave dessert anymore (or rather, I could now resist the temptation).
