The Elimination Experience: Created with the Yo-Yo Dieters in Mind

What started as a little accountability with a partner has turned into an incredible weight loss and mindset revolution.

What is the Elimination Experience? 

I am little over one week into The Elimination Experience that I am running with a few of my coaches. It's been a unique, challenging, and amazing experience to be on the other end of what I do as a coach. I get to be a challenger all over again and focus first on my own results as well as my own limitations.  As a challenger, I am learning quite a few things about my habits, my triggers, and my food sensitivities.  It's really pushing me outside my own comfort zone and allowing me to combat some of those long term issues I have with food.

This is considered a BETA phase as I have been actively adjusting the meal plan and making a few small tweaks to my morning routine as well as the way I plan to run this type of group for my own challengers!

I also want to note that the reason I created this Elimination Experience is because the overwhelming response to a post I did recently about yo-yo dieting. Women like me were coming forward sharing their struggles with the "diet mentality. I too was struggling with the sugar triggers and it was negatively impacted my energy level. 

This is definitely not a restrictive diet or intensified workouts.  This is a plan that focuses on the psychology of our weight struggles. It's about our mindset before we focus on the scale number.

Within one week of  eliminating processed sugars and carbs I noticed a change in my weight but also in my mindset.  I noticed that I had more energy, and my cravings weren't as heavy as they had been.  I know the difference between hunger and boredom, and I've had to really focus on the fact that I am an emotional eater.  I picked up my journal and started documenting my physical and emotional progress.  I started to write how I was feeling as well as some of the deeper issues I think I've been trying to mask with food.

  • Processed Sugar 
  • Alcohol 
  • Dairy
  • Grains 
  • Whey Based Protein
  • Commitments that exhuast me
How Did My Body React the First Week? 

The first couple days were an adjustment.  I had a mild headache and noticed that I was a little more tired than usual.  I felt somewhat foggy and my creatity was basically shot.  I had minor chills.  I really spent a lot of time resting and reading. I dove into the book The Goodess Revolution.

Within the first couple of days, the bloat started to dissipate.  My energy has started to come back, and my digestion is all gravy baby.  It was a clear detox from the sugars I'd been feeding myself.

What Does My Meal Plan Look Like? 

I am giving intermittent fasting a try right now. Intermittent Fasting is limiting the time of day you eat so that your body can fully process the food and optimize fat burning.
My window for food consumption is 11 am to 7 pm. This actually hasn't been an adjustment for me. I am shocked at how incredible this has been.  It's really helped me see amazing results fast, and I love that I am consiciosuly thinking about real hunger vs. boredom or comfort.  In many ways it reminds me of Whole30.  I am eating 3 larger meals a day, but incorporating shakeology.  I am not cutting calories, but I am aware of the types of calories I am putting in:  healthy fats, lean proteins,  veggies and fruits.

I am also incorporatating bulletproof coffee.  The whole bulletproof thing was so bizarre to me at first.  I couldn't wrap my head around healthy fats and coffee without thinking it would be greasy. But what I am learning is that it helps with that window of time before it breaks my fast. It's keeping me full, and I actually like the taste! It's a great alternative to rich creamers!

What Supplements Do I Take? 

I drink Shakeology everyday (Vegan Vanilla)
I use MCT Oil in my coffee
I take a B12 Supplement (I use this every fall and winter)
I drink energize before my workout

What Type of Workouts Am I Doing? 

Throughout the 30 days I am focusing on a mix of cardio workouts as well as weight training.  This past week I participated in a preview of a new program our company is releasing in January called A Little Obsessed.

I plan to follow the 21 Day Fix Extreme, a program I have done in the past with great results. It's great for toning and burning fat because it's so focused on the large muscle groups!

There are great modifications for the program, but it is definitely not a beginner's workout.



What is the #50hoursleepweek Challenge? 

I was talking to my friend about how the holidays get so busy, and throughout the season, it's easy to get caught up in the to do lists, the baking, the shopping, the parties and the demands of the whole season.

I shared that one of the best things I've learned to do in the past is focus on rest.  I am really intentional about getting enough sleep throughout the week. Throughout the challenge, we are having teh participants track their rest and the impact it has on their energy and their mood!  I am a firm believer that you cannot run if you cannot rest!
