Holy crap. SOMEONE PINCH ME. Is this real life?!?!
Originally I intended for this to be a secret blog to keep myself accountable. Now I can't imagine keeping this a secret. I'm no instafamous fitness model, bodybuilding competitor, or expert. I'm just a normal person who had a crazy slow metabolism due to starving myself for six years. I went from being depressed, isolated, and afraid to the happiest I have ever been in my life because of this "macro experiment". I am not exaggerating. No more fear of ANY food whatsoever, no more eating disorder.
I have gone from 947 calories to 1,418 calories (+471 calories) in a little over 2 months. I'll keep adding in calories until I max out my metabolic capacity without weight/fat gain.
Someone please tell me -- why the heck does the world not know about this?!?! I am going to do everything in my power to share this evidence. Please spread the word with me. I am living, breathing proof that the metabolism can be reversed! People can eat a ton more and not get fat! Isn't that everyone's dream come true?? Oh, and by the way, I've had a massive bowl of REAL ice cream EVERY NIGHT during this entire process. Just had to throw that out there too. You don't have to SUFFER by eating bland boring food. You can eat whatever you want, whenever you want as long as you follow a few simple guidelines.
Sorry for this epic soap box post, but I just cannot help myself! I am so passionate about this I LIT-CH-RALLY want to yell it from a mountain top. If I were near one, I would be up there right now yelling like a crazy person! But alas, I am in Nashville so maybe I'll just write a song about it. Hardy har har. :P
In other news, I am working on a new addition to this blog. I am making a straight-forward, streamlined, step-by-step guide in layman's terms to reversing/rehabilitating the metabolism. I want people to know I have no ulterior motives so I'm NOT going to sell it. It's my desire to share the gift that has been given to me with anyone who has struggled as I have. I've spent the last year gleaning from tons of different sources and watching a few others do it on instagram, etc. Now I can say I am SUCCESSFULLY coaching myself through this reverse diet. I know how it works. I want to take all my knowledge and experience and STREAMLINE it for YOU in a way that is not overwhelming. I want to create the kind of guide that I wish I would have had when I first started out.
SO STAY TUNED. I'm working hard to get that section up ASAP! I'm also thinking about doing some V-logs. Kind of nervous about that because I am such a dork, but you already know that about me anyways so I might as well just go for it, eh??
I've been getting more and more emails from people all over the world with incredible stories. Just this morning, I was reading another email that moved me to tears it was so similar to my own… Please don't hesitate to email me you guys. I would love to be a friend and help support you in this or answer any questions! Love you all!
