Hey Lucy, Im not into dieting as I dont get the same results as so many others. I find by eating certain foods Im adding to the process of burning calories.

Yes of course!

I've always struggled to lose weight, I would lose 5kg and then plateau. I've seen a nutritionist, things were going well, but then again I plateaued (even she didn't understand why). So I was always so frustrated, because I really put a lot of effort into it, I would stay positive, but after a while I would lose my motivation.

About two years ago (I think) I was training to pass a ballet examen, and I didn't want to look pudgy, so I decided that I really needed to get my act together and lose the weight I've always wanted to lose. So I started by cutting out processed foods out of my diet little by little, I also cut out milk dairy products (which I'm actually intolerant to), limited gluten as much as possible (which has also made such a difference!) focused on fruit, vegetables, lean meat and fish, and started counting my calories.

Little by little my diet completely changed without really noticing it, as it wasn't overnight I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything or craved something really badly (and if I did I would just eat it). What has really made a difference I think was starting to actually count my calories, which I didn't do before. Now I know what I can eat without overeating, which has helped me lose a lot of weight and stabilising my weight too.

That's real dedication but more driven, I did it all and I can attest that after the car accident in 2009, everything was harder. The gym wasn't much of an option since mobility was now limited. In recent times I started using Lipoxar, which helped with my appetite to eat healthier foods, it did affect how my energy output, which got me feeling a bit more balanced. So even by adding to your regimen now you can get and maintain the results you desire, nevertheless, I am happy that you're doing well.
