Transformation Tuesday – Sasha Weiss
It was an absolute pleasure to have the opportunity to catch up with one of my clients when we were at Uncanny Fitness in Orlando recently.
Sasha and I worked together for a month and in that time she made tremendous progress. Sasha has dropped 10 lbs. and seen a significant change in her body composition. With her diligence and consistency, Sasha’s been able to improve her metabolism and is already at the point where her body needs more food. Read on to find out how Sasha, a self-proclaimed Chick-fil-a addict, got started and how she made flexible eating a sustainable part of her life.
you start Flexible Eating & how did you get started (i.e. what package did
I started October 22nd and purchased the one month coaching package.
What prompted you to get started?
I had tried Paleo, I had tried another program (Christmas Abbott), cutting dairy, low-carb, and nothing had stuck. I have been working out regularly almost every day for the past 5 years and sometimes twice a day and I was not seeing any change in my body. I was about to spend an excessive amount of money on nutritional coaching with a different program when my CrossFit coach at Uncanny Fitness referred me to Own Your Eating. I felt like I had nothing to lose to try out their programming and spend a lot less money than planned.
What changes have you noticed in your body?
I have lost about 10 pounds and 5% body fat. Both my squat and clean have PRed, I have yet to test out other lifts but expect to see some more progress. I also feel a lot better and fueling myself with more carbs than I have in years!
What has been your biggest obstacle that you have overcome or are working on?
I used to have a lot more anxiety in relation to food. With flexible eating nothing is off the table. I don’t have to cut anything in particular. I am less anxious about the idea of going out to dinner and finding something that I can eat. I am still getting used to the idea of when I see weight plateaus that it can actually mean I need more food.
What’s one piece of advice you would give someone that is just getting started?
My Fitness Pal is key! The logging gets easier because as you add certain foods in the app it saves it, eventually becoming quicker and seamless to log your food. Consistency is key, but don’t freak out if you have a bad day. If you’re consistent a bad day will not undo everything you’ve done 🙂
