How Valerie Escaped Diet Restriction
Show Notes

Valerie has struggled with her weight her entire life. She’s tried everything, been on all the restrictive diets, and her weight has yo-yoed a lot along the way. 

A year ago, she had just completed yet another low-calorie weight loss program and was getting ready for a cycle endurance event. Coming off such a restrictive plan and diving straight into intense training meant she gained 30 pounds. 

After the event, the disappointment and shame she felt pushed her to get back on track, but in a different way. Valerie soon discovered the WLCC and joined the 6 week reset. In this chat, we find out just how much this program has impacted her life and relationship with food.

If you’re a notorious yo-yo dieter, there are many pearls of wisdom to learn from this inspirational journey.
