Holly Has Lost 40kgs!
Holly spent 25 years of her life hooked on sugar in any form - takeaways, cookies, and chocolate - before she finally took control of her body and her mind. Nowadays, Holly has gone from 105 kilograms to 66 kilos - and learned to love herself in the process. "My sugar addiction is no longer in control of me,'
Holly's weight gain problems really started when she moved away from home at age 17 and discovered alcohol: 'I suddenly had this ability to do what I wanted and eat what I wanted,' she remembered.
'The problem wasn't so much with the alcohol, it was that the alcohol led to bad food choices.' Confessing that she didn't really know what a healthy meal looked like, Holly would survive off a diet of takeaways, cookies, and chocolate and eschewed food prep and fruit and vegetables:
'It's funny because when you're bigger, you never look at yourself as bigger - you don't realize your size,' she explained. It wasn't until she developed tonsilitis and was placed on the scales at the doctors that Holly even realized she clocked in at 105 kilograms. 'I remember bawling my eyes out on the phone to my mum and saying things had to change,'
What followed was not a smooth weight loss journey. Instead, Holly spent three years on various challenges, trying to go entirely without sugar and 'crashing off a lack of sugar all the time as I was used to it'.
Holly eventually joined our program, because it allowed her to eat what she wanted but also made sure that she re-trained her mind when it came to her nemesis, sugar:
'Drew cuts nothing out. The method gives you that perfect balance of carbs, fat, and sugar,' she said.
'Before I would eat my chicken, rice, and broccoli and feel good, and then eat something bad later and be filled with self-loathing.
'On this programme, I can eat goat's cheese carbonara - which I had the other evening - healthy homemade chocolate and pasta, it's all about moderation.' She also now weighs 66 kilos but said the main improvement has been in her mind: 'I love myself now. I don't pick at things I hate, I eat what I enjoy,' she said.
