It had been a few days since I started actively sharing The Healthy Eating Made Easy Cheat Sheet, and I got an email that simply said “Thanks EJ. Healthy eating has never seemed easier.”
It was an email from Lola, a lawyer who was ready to stop feeling sick from all the diets she’d tried in the past.
Needless to say I wanted to find out more about this professional woman who’d taken fast action and started to feel the difference in such a short time.
I asked if she would get on the phone with me to talk with me about how she put her food choices on autopilot with the Cheat Sheet, and she agreed.
And I had to share her progress with you to show you what’s possible when you take action – no matter how small it is.
Read the interview with Lola…
…on how her life has changed since she took action on what she discovered in The Healthy Eating Made Easy Cheat Sheet.
What diets did you try in the past?
“I tried the Ketogenic diet and straight up starving myself by skipping meals. When I used these methods, I was weak most of the time, my concentration at work was off, and I didn’t feel healthy at all.”
Tell us more about how these diets impacted your health…
“I would lose weight, but I was falling ill constantly. There were the stomach ulcers, and I was dizzy and weak almost all the time.
I kept getting colds and coughs. My health was not 100% to begin with due to some of the preexisting health conditions I had and these fad diets seemed to be beating down my immune system even more.
I didn’t like how I felt because I needed to be focused in my work as a lawyer, but I didn’t think I could reach my ideal weight by eating properly instead of starving myself or feeling deprived all the time.”
So what have you done differently since with what you discovered in the Cheat Sheet?
“Now to be honest, it is simply portion control, lots of water, veggies and cutting out processed foods and drinks. But I’m keeping my coffee…lol.”
And how has this worked for you so far?
“Very well! I feel healthier and lighter and I drink more water. My digestion is humming and I sleep better at night.
I’m asthmatic, and since I started eating healthier using what I discovered the Cheat Sheet, I haven’t needed to use my inhaler. And this is usually the worst time of year for me with the weather change.
I also feel more in control. I’m not starving myself and I’m not over-the-top indulging either.
And being more controlled this way makes me feel better about what I’m doing.
I thought I wasn’t business inclined to be honest, but now that my mind isn’t focused on worrying about my weight, I feel clearer and it’s opening up my world. I’m seeing business opportunities that I could do that I didn’t even think of before.”
What was the difference maker that took you from struggling to the breakthrough that you’ve achieved so far?
“The difference was finding someone who confirmed what I hoped to be true – in the article I read where I got the cheat sheet, you were saying just what I thought was impossible ~ that I could eat properly without starving or feeling deprived and still reach my ideal.
I didn’t believe it was possible, but I thought to try.
And the fact that you responded to my email and took the time to talk to me, I feel like I know you, like you take interest in me and that attention helped.”
Where do you see yourself going next?
“I’m happy with my progress. I’ve lost 3 kg on my own since I first sent you that email saying thank you.
I wasn’t even trying to lose weight per se. I was just eating healthier and then my clothes started feeling looser and I was feeling less bloated.
Plus I’m going crazy with the vegetables. I eat them all the time now.
I’m happy with my progress and I intend to lose 7 more kg and maintain it. And I know I can sustain eating the way I am right now. I’m happy with the fact that my weight isn’t on my mind all the time.
Before I was either worried about my weight or feeling ill from recovering from the cheat days where I overindulged. Now I’m not on a diet, and I’m seeing progress that feels almost effortless.
I can’t wait to channel my new-found focus towards being a Lawyer with a successful business of her own. I’m so excited.”
