First of all i want to say that there is no perfect recipe for weight loss, like there is no perfect recipe for happiness in life.
In the beggining of this lifestyle i was a little bit obsessed with my weight, after 1-2 monthes there where no changes still i was waiting , i was still hoping, then i gave up and said to myself that i will lose weight maybe latter when my body will be really clean and healthy. Sometimes begginers on this diet except miracles in some weeks after YEARS of eating garbage, sorry but that's what eats our societty today. And i was one of them. Then i gave up struggling, i said to myself that this is a longterm lifestile which will probably give me best results in years not weeks or months. I gave up the ideeas of restricting and i let myself, first time in my life , to eat all what i deserve(i mean all fruits, and some cooked veggies) in the quantities my body really needs.
Last month i was very very busy , especially last week with extracurricular stuff and when today i weight myself... guess.. i lost 5 pounds, i even haven't done something special, i continued to stuff myself with fruit and when i haven't fruit by my side i did't starve'd, i ate cooked veggies. I really was surprised when i saw that lost weight because actually i was eating more then ever. So what i learned: that on 811 diet- the more fruit you eat the BETTER, and never you eat too much of it. Is like water- never enough, the more you drink the clear is your body and mind.
Once you give up that you must lose weight, once that you give up restriction, once that you begin to really love you body and nourish it for real the weight that needed to be lost it will be melt and you even don't realize. This is what happended to me.
I know that this lifestyle isn't a fad , fast diet, but i wrote this because i noticed lost of people struggling just like me so i want to share this experience of mine.
811 diet will give all of us best results after YEARS of practice , not WEEKS.
Go and enjoy you life, enjoy the fruit, don't care about nothing, and you will achieve everything!
Isabelle, I take it that is your photo by your post? May I say that you look stunning and I just don´t see where you have any weight to lose. I do believe that results are best after time!
no, it isn't my photo, is a photo which inspires me :)
people often gain blood, bone, muscle, glycogen, lymph and or hair weight on this lifestyle. Those still caught in lack mentality will instantly say 'IM GETTING FAT!! OMG!! HELP ME!!!'
Sounds like your on the right insight track Isabelle. :)
Girls need to start seeing me as a girl. Look at my long slender legs, flat stomach and defined face. I would be a cat walk model if I were born a girl.
It must be because of all the calories he eats. ^^
cute sister you have harley!
