Never knew that in 3yrs, I’ve changed (and quite damaged) my body. Here’s my story:
Anorexia nervosa. Found out a fad diet, restricted myself to the good stuff, I lost weight! From 60kg, in a month I became 53kg! Then I feared a spoonful of rice, I feared eating meats. Went to an everyday cardio, 7x a week! No rest day! Then I feared gaining even a pound of weight. I became anorexic. My manager even told me I looked like a cadaver straight out from a coffin. 😐
I stopped the fad diet because I felt like I craved for all the foods I restricted my body from. I began introducing my bod again to meat, beef, noodles, pizzas, doughnuts, name all the good food! Day after day, though I am not overeating, I can feel I was gaining weight. True enough, I was (basing from photos). I still did cardio. Only cardio. I GAINED BACK ALL THOSE NUMBERS I LOST ON THE WEIGHING SCALE AND EVEN ADDED A BIT MORE. From 53kg, I went up to 67-68kg even! My metabolism was totally destroyed because of that fad diet! 😩Even incorporated a dietary supplement because I was so frustrated to lose all those weight I gained!
Never thought I could be back in shape again. I lost hope til I approached coach @mikefitph of Gold’s Gym New Manila. We set goals — and not only a 30-day challenge. Made sure that he checks on my macros everyday. I am still on a diet, but not on a restricted and a fad one! Also, 10min cardio nalang ako! More on weights. I loved beef, rice, whole eggs and from time to time, I also had MILKTEAS, takoyakis, munchkins and some fast foods too! Hehe sorry coach! I may not have lost all the weight I gained but I started building muscles and seeing a toned bod. Such music to my ears when someone says,, “Grabe! Ang tone mo Tine!” Pero, when that is followed up with “Kumakain ka pa ba?” I certainly answer “Oo naman! Tara kain?”
I still have questions about my progress though. There are times I gain pounds but lose body fat, or vice versa — lose weight but gains body fat! Thankfully, coach Mike knows the hows and whys! We’re still not finished with the goal yet, but I’ve been stronger ever since!
