The point of no return
Everyone gets to a time in their lives where they hit the point of no return: the moment in their life where they realize that they are going down the wrong path, and they are jolted into taking sincere action to make meaningful change.
For Eve, this moment took the form of elastic-band jeans.
I was going to have to wear those because all of the size 24s didn’t even fit anymore … this was before [because] I think now some of the sizes go up to 28 even, but [back then] size 24 was it. I couldn’t get into anything, but the pull-on jeans and I was like “I’m in my twenties and I’m not wearing this shit”. (Eve Guzman)
This moment is a crucial one for anyone in their lives, whether it is about giving them the courage to quit the job they do not enjoy, or to seriously get on track with their health and fitness and to get their vitality and physical health back into shape.
In many ways, reaching rock bottom can be a powerful moment that will propel you to really take action, if you let it.
What makes it stick?
In order to see real and long-term change, it is important to have stable and sustainable goals that you can follow, even if you can follow it 80% of the time.
That means no crazy diet fads, no quick fixes, no six-week programs: it is finding the balance between food and fitness that works for you and your body in a way that allows you to push yourself but that does not harm your health.
I focused on hitting the goal 80% of the time so if I had hiccups here and there that slowed it down a little, it was better than completely stopping the breaks, feeling guilty for a week and then restarting again. (Eve Guzman)
Switching meal plans for science
My journey went from all of those crazy things to calorie tracking and then I progressed to macro tracking … so you know following a caloric deficit of calorie-based program … and when you focus on the quality of where those calories are coming from, your body composition changes unbelievably. (Eve Guzman)
The main changes that Eve created into her diet were:
- Macro tracking,
- getting her protein and fiber levels up,
- varying her sources of carbs,
- not avoiding good fats, and
- completing weight training
These aspects all helped Eve to recreate her body and allow her to maintain its levels consistently without major weight fluctuations or changes.
