If you’ve always lived by the adage that less is more, it may be time to switch things up!
Nessa – a 39-year-old finance worker from Luxembourg- turned this idea on it’s head, and STILL achieved the figure of her dreams.
After starting a new high pressure role Nessa began gaining weight and feeling less than her best.
“I was focused on my job and not on my body. I was making poor food choices, and I constantly felt stressed and tired.”
And like many dieters before her, an unflattering photo provided the wake up call she needed to make changes to her lifestyle.
“I didn’t realize how much my body changed during the time that I didn’t care enough about it.”
So in March last year she started taking steps to becoming both happier and healthier. Setting her alarm for 5am, she committed to a gym session before her working day. Her workouts centred on Kayla Itsines’s Bikini Body Guides – a series of high-intensity interval training.
While her new figure slowly but surely began to take shape – Nessa noticed that things started to plateau at the six month mark.
And after an honest assessment of her eating habits she realised that while she’d been eating pretty healthily 80 per cent of the time a few old habits had begun to creep back in. Swinging from 1,000 to 3,000 a day calorie intake, her balanced diet was out of kilter.
But instead of cutting back, she opted to eat more. And enlisted a colleague with a personal training certification to devise a healthy meal plan.
Eating every three hours, she packed in five to six balanced meals. Her total calorie count? A surprising 1,900 to 2,000 calories a day!
And while she now takes a break from her plan at the weekends, she stuck to it diligently for the first 11 weeks. And the results are impressive!
