I used to diet and exercise. Now I eat and train. This mindset shift has made all the difference and I want to help you achieve it as well through Mission Lean. Like many women, I controlled my portions and avoided carbs for years. This left me hungry and constantly depleted of energy. I often consumed diet products (which I thought were the healthier alternative) – including diet soda – Orange Crush was my favorite. Despite this, I would still spend hours at the gym. I drank coffee to have energy throughout the day and, of course, this affected my sleep. Looking back now, I see how unhealthy these habits were and I want you to learn from my mistakes!
Eventually, together with Jon, I learned the holistic approach to health that you will find here on Mission Lean. I started to focus on the nutrition in my food (rather than the calories) and after a few months (and pounds lost) I started to believe that you can actually eat well AND look good. Now, I always eat to satiation, often enjoy dessert, and have so much energy to work out powerfully and still be able to focus and concentrate throughout the day. This is the reason Jon and I created Mission Lean– to teach others the right habits and mindsets to feel their absolute best every day. I want everyone who undertakes our Get Lean Program to “graduate” thinking of themselves as an athlete. To work out hard to get your body to perform at its best and make sure to fuel it with nutritious food.
You will learn to focus on the nutrition in your food and never worry about calories. Because you will be in tune with your body (and it won’t be going haywire due to crazy chemicals from unnatural products), you will be able to trust your instincts in terms of hunger and satiation. I never experience the cravings that I used to and now that I know what being healthy feels like, I will never live any other way. Start this program and you will feel the same!
