My WildFit Story

This is a bit of a longer story. As a lifestyle change epiphany doesn’t happen overnight!

 

Being the biology geek that I am, I became very interested in health. During my clinical as a nursing student, I worked in a residential care home (old folks home). This is where I saw many people suffering with cognitive disabilities, heart problems and diabetes.

My grandfather, at the time, was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, as well as type two diabetes. You can say that I was given a lot of exposure and insight as to how I do NOT want to be at the age of 80.

From this I began researching and got into more holistic health.

This ultimately lead me to the concept of healing through food. Through researching I discovered how some scientists are calling Alzheimer’s the third diabetes, as it is strongly correlated with the amount of sugar an individual consumes.

I also discovered the report on how the sugar industry paid to have a study done to tell the world that fat is bad for you. Not sugar, but fat. Even though with consuming high amounts of sugar you are creating fat stores within your body.

 

Hmmmm

Now I looked at my own health. I was 19 at the time and well I knew that I was highly addicted to sugar. I once tracked the amount of sugar I would consume in a day and it easily was over 150 grams. Let me tell you, that is a lot! I didn’t even know what a sugar high was anymore because I was living one every single day.

As an avid athlete in high school, I had tried many times to eat ‘healthy’ and every time had failed to do so.

 

Now what?

After all my research and knowing that things needed to change for me or I too could end up in a residential home unable to tell you my name; I looked into a new diet.

As a follower of Mindvalley, I saw that they were putting on a free 7 days to stop eating sugar quest. On a mission I decided to try it, why not! I made it to day 3 and couldn’t continue. I was that attached to sugar…

So I dug deeper and found that the root of the quest was from a program called WildFit. A 90 day challenge to help you get your health back on track. One of the promises on WildFit is to remove sugar cravings, I didn’t even need to look any further, that was all I wanted!

Excited to have finally found something that might help me I looked at where I could sign up! Well the price tag got me…$1497 USD

Where am I going to find $1900 to do a health program that as a 20 year old, I didn’t really need?

Let me tell you a little secret, when you really want something you’ll find a way. That is exactly what I did! I had a mission and a purpose to better my health so I could live a longer, happier and healthier life.

There were many challenges and I recorded them all! It isn’t everyday someone tackles a new lifestyle while working 14 hour days and shift work so I documented my journey which you can watch here!

In the end WildFit:

  • Gave me the pride and ability to eat zero sugar without cravings
  • Helped me to release weight that I never thought I would
  • Boosted my confidence (the biggest plus)
  • Made me a WAY better cook
  • Allowed me to be free of the food marketing industry
  • Left me free of everyday back pain
  • And reduced the inflammation throughout my body
10 Ibs. down and 5 inches lost overall!
