A year ago I had come out of an unemployment/lockdown slump where I had gotten very comfortable with snacking and laying about. I knew something had to change but struggled for the motivation to do anything about it. Green Zone was advertising an 8 week challenge at the time so I decided to try it.
The team running the challenge showed us how to choose a healthy option/substitute for every day foods, showed us how to use certain apps to help us manage our calorie intake which helped us understand what was going into our bodies and how hard we needed to work to burn anything off. I had given myself a realistic goal of one year to lose 20kg. I still wanted to enjoy takeaways once a week with my family without feeling guilty for not sticking to eating stereotypical diet food. Although I’m still a couple of kilos from that goal, I’m still very pleased with my results so far.
I don’t use the apps anymore because I haven’t counted my calorie intake since the challenge but have a better knowledge and understanding of meal and portion sizes.
Thanks Green Zone. If it weren’t for the challenge, I think I’d still be struggling.
