Asha started the SnS method over a year ago with the goals of optimizing her health after engaging in restrictive diet and exercise behaviours as an ex-bikini competitior. She was ready to commit to prioritizing her health and repairing the metabolic adaptation and hormone down regulation that was standing in the way of enjoying life. After a year of dedication and daily self reflections with our thought provoking check in's to help her understand the WHY behind her goals of reaching a certain a body weight, she stated that her new goal with the SnS program is no longer to reach a certain a body weight, but to LOOK and FEEL strong! This is such a powerful message as these mindsets have been ingrained in us over a lifetime and take consistent effort over a long period of time to reframe in order to develop a healthier relationship with food, exercise and our body. We're so proud of your dedication to the SnS Program Asha!
"1 year ago, I started working with @snatchesandsamosas to repair my hormones after competing, and this journey changed my life!
Starting at 123 lbs
*Working out and doing cardio obsessively 6-7 days a week
*In a caloric deficit
*Felt like I was constantly depriving myself
*Continuously physically and mentally stressed
Now at 111 lbs
*Working out 5 days a week, no cardio and incorporating NEAT movement
*Not being in a caloric deficit and eating whole foods, cutting out sugar, dairy and gluten
*Having occasional treats and making better choices while eating out
*Focusing on mindset, nutrition timing, energy, digestion, satiety, sleep, recovery and stress management
Thank you @snatchesandsamosas for teaching me that your hormones are more powerful than any fitness or nutrition plan!"
