Heather Testimonial

Heather Before & After

My name is Heather, and I am 38 years old. I live in Boise, Idaho. I ate relatively well before attempting to go Paleo, but refined carbs were definitely a good part of my diet. I would also occasionally do things like eat taco bell quesadillas or chick-fil-a. No more of that though! It’s amazing what self control comes with realizing refined carbs and chemicals are doing to your insides!

I definitely have not gone 100% Paleo, but my biggest goal is to eat as much whole food as possible. I’ve replaced pasta with spaghetti squash. I will only eat flour-less bread, in moderation, as I have found it doesn’t irritate my stomach.

I’ve also largely given up dairy. I still partake in high quality unsalted, butter, but I buy coconut milk instead of cow milk, and one of the biggest things I’ve stopped doing is buying cheese! I’ll still put a small amount of feta or goat cheese in a salad, but I’ve definitely stopped with the blocks of cheese and box of crackers… that has been a challenge, but obviously worth it!

In the first photo I weighed 131 lbs. and in the second I weigh 127 lbs. definitely have noticed a difference in the way my clothing fits, and that’s always exciting. I am looking forward to getting started with the Flat Belly Flow workouts and continuing to expand my Paleo skills. I think the stronger I get in the kitchen, the more able I’ll be to finally go 100% Paleo, and that will be a fun goal to work towards

The biggest thing I’ve noticed since cutting the refined carbs is not feeling bloated at all, but still being able to eat enough to feel satisfied. That is definitely important to me, because I don’t like being hungry. I am a massage therapist which means I need energy to give my clients the best care possible. They deserve that and if I walked into my studio looking like I was trying to starve myself, they would probably run in the other direction, as they should. Who wants someone weak and frail to try to release their rectus femoris? Not me!

As a therapist, I am always looking for ways to improve on presenting myself as the healthiest and strongest I can be. As I get older, taking care of my muscles, joints and bones is going to determine how long I am able to be a deep-tissue therapist. So far making some steps in the Paleo direction has been one of the things I could confidently say will point me in the longevity direction.

Thank you, Dr, Chad and Dr. Brenda! You two are so committed to your clients and I find that inspiring!
