Last July Coach Damien and I went to a talk about Flexible Dieting and it has turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

I've spent the last 35 years or so in a pretty bad relationship with food. I've lost weight, gained weight, starved myself, gone on all out binges and had resigned myself to believing that I had to work out hard every day to keep myself at some kind of acceptable body weight.

Flexible Dieting has given me a new, healthy relationship with food - and a physique - that I wish I had found years ago.

Here are a few of the lessons I've learned over the last year:

  • Be 100% consistent, not 100% perfect
  • “Cheat” with 1 or 2 meals a week, not days
  • You can't out-exercise poor diet choices
  • Having an accountability partner is awesome
  • There is not one solution for everyone...but we all need to eat a calorie deficit for successful weight loss
  • Be honest with yourself, but be kind too
  • You'll be surprised how much food you can eat if you balance your macros
  • Don't be obsessed with the number on the scale
  • A diet break is OK as long as you know when it's ending
  • You can have your cake and eat it, as long as you track it
  • There are no quick and easy solutions to sustained weight loss and maintaining training performance
