    I have kept off a 50lb weight loss over the past 8 years,however I don’t think I ever really learned to let go of the “diet” mentality. In the past 8 months I have started a weight training program and while I don’t know if my way of eating is working for me anymore. Do you offer nutritional counseling? I sort of feel like I need some help learning to eat at maintenance. I’ve been having a hard time finding a strong female roll model that isn’t anti-carb etc.
    Hope to hear back from you,

    My God – This could have been me writing this. It sounds just like me. I’ve not dropped 50lbs but I’ve been working out for the better of 25yrs and have not learned how to let go of the “diet” mentality. I’m working with a trainer right now and my goal is to get as lean as my body will comfortable take me while eating a good clean diet. I don’t want to be a carb-a-phobic any longer I just want to eat healthy clean diet.

      Letting go of that diet mentality and loving the body you are in takes time. It’s a process of learning to trust your instincts again and eat when you are truly hungry but stop when you are full. Normal eating means some days you overeat, some days you under eat but you listen to what your body really needs. When people get to this point, they find it freeing.

      And yes, I eat carbohydrates! Too few carbs or calories and I space out :)
