Testimonial-It's Not All About Me!

It's easy for me to talk about eating clean but there are many others out there who subscribe to this same lifestyle. I thought you'd like to hear testimonials from some fabulous women who don't just talk the talk but walk, squat, run, lunge, push and pull their way to their best every day! My hope is that their words will help take you to that next level in eating nutritionally whole foods that your body needs to perform at it's absolute best every day!

My first testimonial comes from Rebekah. I love this girl! She inspires me, keeps me motivated and we push each other in friendly, yet competitive ways which keeps us both going day to day, week to week, month to month. She's a fitness friend I will cherish forever!

I’ve always considered myself to be a healthy eater, but wasn’t experiencing the changes I wanted in my body as far as lowering my body fat and building muscle without feeling like I was starving all the time. I was never a big processed food eater, but I would still have something most every day that was processed, such as packaged, low-fat burritos from Trader Joe’s, protein bars, no fat, sugar free Cool Whip, jello, etc. Beginning January 2011, I began working with a nutritionist who is teaching me about eating whole foods and eliminating all processed foods from my menu. After the first week of eating all whole foods, I felt like my body had gone through a cleanse and when I weighed myself, I was down 5 lbs. My stomach wasn’t bloated anymore and I felt lighter. Growing up I was conditioned to view my progress and my self-image by the number on the scale. It has taken me some time, but I’m nearly free from that perspective. I view the scale now as only a tool to chart my progress. The way I feel, how I fit into my clothes and how I look in the mirror are so much more important to me than how much I weigh. I’m now in my fourth week of whole, lean and clean eating and I feel better than I can ever remember! To date, I’ve lost 6 lbs. in three weeks. I have much more energy, a clearer mind, my body doesn’t feel starved, I don’t have the urge to binge eat, I don’t require as many hours of sleep, I have more time and energy to devote to my family, my friends and my attitude and emotional well-being has dramatically improved. Working out is important to me and I’m in the gym at least five days a week, but what I fuel my body with is the most important factor in achieving the goals I have set for myself. In turn, I’m building the muscle and lowering my body fat in the process. I feel like a winner and this way of eating is now my way of life! ~Rebekah
