"My consultant explained that my hypothyroid and hypoparathyroid were causing me to be consistently tired and sluggish. He believed the Habitual programme would help with this. Within a few days, I was enrolled and ready to go! I was excited, but inwardly worried about whether I would actually manage it."
“I won’t lie, the first few days on TDR were very hard. You go from eating whatever you want, when you want, to suddenly having 800 calories per day. It’s a shock to the system, but my view was (and still is!) to take each day as it comes. My clothes started feeling looser by day four, and by the end of week one I had lost 8 lbs! Having the constant positive reinforcement of constantly seeing the scales go down is incredibly motivating.”
“I can honestly say that I have been no saint. Yes, I have broken and had the odd biscuit here or there (I’m only human). But the daily exercises have got me thinking. It’s not about what I eat, it’s more about my thinking around how I eat. In the past, I would have shamed myself for eating that kebab, would have become depressed because of it, and ultimately continued down this negative spiral, eating more and more as I went. “
“I found the nutrition emails so so helpful to help me understand how food works not in terms of taste but what it does inside you, so you can use it in a wise way when choosing meals. I learnt how things actually worked and for different people. I did know something from my job as a nurse, but I learnt how to focus on myself and what works for me.”
“I’ve discovered a lot of new foods - i am eating things I didn’t eat before, in ways I’ve never eaten before. It was difficult in the beginning when I would eat something i shouldn’t, because i would feel really guilty, but the programme helped me overcome that guilt.”
“I lost motivation many times. It’s impossible to change your mindset fully overnight. But when I ate poorly, I immediately noticed the change in my health. If you lose motivation, allow yourself a day or so, but as you’re eating the foods you used to eat, be aware of how it makes your body feel and know in your head that you’ll get bck on track. This has definitely worked for me.”
