@brianna__sky: I know, I always go on and on about the importance of eating, and my experience with IIFYM and reverse dieting, but I just love it. Share what ya love, right? ❤️🙏 2 months ago I began the process of reverse dieting and the IIFYM lifestyle. Before that I was eating 1200 calories a day of a strict/clean diet and working off about 600 of those calories with hours of cardio. Bad. After watching @biolayne’s videos and reading up on damaged metabolisms, I realized I had destroyed my body. I decided to make a change!
I began IIFYM and reverse dieting. I began eating the things I used to enjoy that were considered “dirty” (in moderation) and adding more and more calories into my diet each week.Those calories were coming from carbs and fats, things I would dread before. Now, two months later, I am the same weight as I was before and I am eating 1850 calories (only going up from here) that consist of nutrient-dense foods AND treats. I do way less cardio then before, and mainly focus on lifting and boxing. I am seeing results in my body that I wasn’t seeing before. The thing that makes me happiest is that I am able to eat a lot and not have guilt. My current relationship with food makes me proud of how far I have come after suffering from athletica anorexia and orthorexia.
