At the age of 30, Christine was diagnosed with gluten intolerance, which forced her to learn how to eat all over again. She tried various diets but found that counting things like calories or carbs only led to obsession. This is a common issue with restrictive diets that focus on counting calories, macros, or other factors. These diets may work for weight loss in the short term, but they often lead to rebound weight gain and a negative relationship with food.
Christine eventually discovered Molly’s book and decided to follow the plan Molly outlines in it. After quitting sugar for only two weeks, Christine noticed improvements in her skin, weight, and sleep. The benefits only multiplied as time went on, and Christine even reports having much less stress and a better relationship with herself and her family. Christine has been imperfectly sugar-free for three years now.
Christine discusses the self-care routines, support system, and motivation behind her personal transformation. This conversation serves as a valuable reminder that there is no universal formula for well-being and that treating ourselves with kindness and empathy yields the most positive outcomes.
- “I always have to go back to my why. There is a reason why I am doing this.”
- “You just have to put one foot in front of the other, wait, be kind to yourself. Be patient because it’s not a quick fix. It’s a process, and it’s a practice, so you don’t have to be perfect at it you just have to keep going.”
