  1. This article pretty much summarized a good portion of my life. I started in high school with low fat everything. Then did Atkins. Then starving and over exercising. Then vegetarian, vegans, Paleo etc. It was a miserable cycle. The funny thing is, I never was fat. I was more skinny fat/flabby most likely due to the crazy diets I was always on! I read TRYIS and a book called In Defense of Food and something just clicked. I am eating small portions of whole foods, not eliminating any food groups, ignoring all the “studies” and am so much better. The diet roller coaster is a f’ing nightmare.

  2. This is wonderful news! I’m so happy you figured it out. *High five* ..Curious: is this something maybe you could do a little write-up about sometime? I’d love to have a spotlight post on you where you share your story and success. Please think about it! <3 - AMD

  3. Surely! I need to dredge up some of my old photos 🙂
