This was my Ah-ha moment, the moment I realized that what I was doing to prepare for my physique contest was so effective I could tailor it for anyone who wanted to lose weight.
The key was this: my competition eating was based on eating only whole, nutrient dense foods. There was ZERO sugar in my diet. ZERO! I was eating plenty of vegetables, some berries, healthy fats and protein but nothing else.
I had stumbled onto the success formula for losing weight and feeling well again. If I avoided all refined sugars and man made foods, I would lose weight and not only that, I would feel absolutely bursting with energy.
