In the AENpeeps community, we aim for optimizing our health, fueling our body with what it needs and prioritizing a sustainable and long term approach to achieving weight loss and wellness dreams. A sustainable approach to achieving your weight loss goals is not only essential for long term success, but also for mental health! We have to LOVE how we feel, what we're doing and what we're eating - that's what LIFE is about!
That's why in the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle, we focus on the mechanisms that turn fat burning ON in the body while minimizing the effects that turn fat burning OFF. And all of this is done WITHOUT feeling hungry - in fact, optimizing satiety is another one of the KEY aspects!
Today, I'm sharing AENpeep Jennifer's story. Jennifer used her body's own fat burning mechanisms and satiety hormones in her favor to achieve her wellness goals and feel GOOD in the process - while eating meals she loved! Check out Jennifer's inspiring story below!
Tell us about yourself!
Hi everyone! I'm Jennifer and I was born and raised near Pasadena, California. I've lived a few different places throughout my life, from Hawai'i to Canada. I am currently living in Phoenix, Arizona but plan on moving back to sunny California in the near future. I work as a nanny, but my dream is to work with exotic animals one day.
Which Program are you following?
How did you find AEN?
I found the amazing Autumn on Youtube! I had a vague understanding of Intermittent Fasting, and was doing it my own way for about a month or so. I felt like I wasn't doing IF properly, so I went on YouTube to see if I could learn more about this type of eating style. Autumn was the first video I clicked on. What caught my eye was her smoothies at first! I am in love with smoothies, so I was excited to see what recipes worked for IF. After I watched her first video, I watched another, and another. Not only did she give great recipes, she also provided nutritional information about the ingredients that went in them. But what really made me want to try her program was the way she explained intermittent fasting, and the science behind it. She answered every question I needed answered to better understand IF.
What was your wellness goal with the Program?
My wellness goal was to lose my tummy fat, which in turn would help me to develop the abs I've always wanted. I wasn't happy with where I was physically. I am 5'1" and petite, and was 120 at my heaviest. For my body type, I personally wasn't happy with the little extra fat here and there. And with my short stature, even a little extra fat made me look heavier than I actually was. So, I wanted to change it.
What else have you tried in the past to achieve your goals?
In the past, I've hired personal trainers, bought at-home dvd programs, and tried going to the gym on my own. I learned great information from each of these methods, but something just wasn't clicking. Most programs I tried just told me what to eat and when to eat without giving any information as to why, so I lost motivation because I didn't know why I was doing it. I believe Autumn's program was such a success for me because of the in-depth detail she went into, from the benefits of the food that went into her recipes, to the science behind IF.
Did you have any hesitations before getting started?
I had no hesitations before starting the program. I had watched many of Autumn's YouTube videos, looked through her website, and read testimonials from people who had also used her program. After doing my own "research" I was 100% confident in Autumn's program and excited to see the results it would bring.
What were the biggest wellness wins that you experienced?
My biggest wellness win that I experienced was fat loss. This was my number one goal so I was thrilled with it! Along with this, I also gained more knowledge about nutrition and the science behind how food affects my body. All the information I learned I can now use to maintain a healthier me for the future!
