Tracee Arnup: "I learnt to give less f*cks."

"For 12 years of my life, I was highly dependent on anti-depressants."

In the beginning, my depression was fuelled by a constant need to compare myself to others. This lead to self-sabotage, which resulted in a never-ending viscious circle of constant weight gain and weight loss.

I was a serial yo-yo dieter who was looking for every quick fix to make me feel better, always craving that "If I lose just another 5kg I'll be happy", instead of tackling the real underlying issues.

I was quite happy to flog myself with 2 workouts a day and try to survive on less than 600 calories a day, as well as eat foods that I was intolerant to, just because I thought that I had to eat broccoli and dry chicken to get results. 

This only led me to eat my body-weight in whatever I could get my hands on, which at the time was chocolate or anything sweet.

These past 3 years have been about breaking down the habits that I had built up over 30 years of my life, and for me to get the results I wanted, it forced me to split them down one by one (and still is). 

It wasn’t until I started seeing results from this that I understood that nutrition is never about the food. 

Three years of breaking habits has paid off for Tracee

I can now proudly say that I have successfully been off the medication for almost 2 years now. I'm not gonna say it has been easy, because no journey worth having comes easy, but what I can say is that I have the tools to be able to handle the situations that arise in a much more calm and “less fucks given” attitude.

Yes I have lost some weight and downsized with all my body measurements, but what I'm most proud of is that I've kept it off. I've learnt how to fuel my body correctly in line with my goals, and that I am mentally stronger than ever before.

My life is a lot calmer, more focused and is setting me up for an enjoyable healthy lifestyle that I can share with my kids for many years to come. 

To say that this program has saved my life would be a massive under-statement.
