Think of the last time you tried to get fit, you signed up to a new health plan, joined the gym and was pumped until something happens. You slip up, fall of the wagon and your back to square one. I’ll be honest with you since putting on my weight I’ve tried so many health plans without luck, I’ve lost count. What changed I discovered Bright Line Eating (BLE) and discovered the power of accountability.
It’s only been 30 days but I feel lighter, happier, I can see a healthier future where I will reach goal weight because unlike most plans I’ve discovered, BLE is so focused on community and support.
So how does it work?
There are 4 bright lines: no flour, no sugar, quantities and 3 meals. Yes you read correctly no sugar or flour shock horror. When I first heard about this plan I was like wait no pizza, pasta, popcorn again. Not my food. NMF! But I’ve now learnt that you can cook so many wonderful meals without the need of sugar or flour. What about Quantities? On the plan you also have to weigh your food each meal is carefully planned out in ounces and this brings with it so much relief. What you share out is what you eat there’s no ambiguity about over eating or snacking because 1oz of oats is simply just 1 oz of oats. So no snacking this was a hard one to get my head around as I am someone who had build up a habit of eating when I’m bored. Especially during lockdown I realised I was literally walking into the kitchen and stuffing my face with crackers and bread not necessarily because I was hungry but out of sheer boredom. So I’ve come to respect and appreciate just eating 3 meals.
I’ll be real it’s been a hard adjustment I have had years of building up bad habits so it’s a complete culture change and adjustment to my relationship with food. But I definitely feel like I’m moving in the right direction. But the most important part which is probably what your wondering does it work? I have lost so much weight the inches are shrinking I’m feeling more flexible and active. We’re not meant to exercise as it uses willpower that we need to focus on our eating but I’ve been going on light walks each morning.
I’ve been meditating and journaling and spending more of my days focusing on what I’m grateful for and what I can do to serve others rather than obsessing over food. They say that BLE isn’t a diet it’s a lifestyle and I believe it’s true it’s completely shifted my mindset. I have gained a buddy who I message daily to hold each other accountable to commit to the food we planned the night before. Moreover I’ve joined a mastermind group which I use to check in with 3 other lovely ladies. If you’ve been struggling with your relationship with food and have weight to loose I would recommend checking out BLE it could just be the answer you’ve been looking for.
