I'm 23 years old and currently a master's student in electrical engineering. In my free time I exercise a lot (soccer, Freeletics and since a few weeks CrossFit) and I like to play the clarinet.
This constant feeling of discomfort in your own body and little things that you encounter again and again in everyday life (e.g. when some shops are simply not on your radar when you go shopping because nothing will fit, or it just gets uncomfortable when friends start talking about weight, ...) . A few years ago I had already lost a good 20 lbs (wrongly and therefore not sustainably) and I always knew that losing weight would work again at some point. I also just wanted to live a healthier life and still be fit later.
I never had a specific weight goal. I just wanted to lower the number on the scale, finally eat healthy and feel good in my body.
I've always done a lot of sport - so far it has failed because of the diet. During my studies, I then started to acquire some knowledge about nutrition and at some point I also knew what was wrong - basically too many calories and too much fat, not enough protein. But I never wanted to track calories, it always seemed too time-consuming. So I tried different plans. But none of them really suited me, so I never stuck with them for long. I discovered feastr by accident and was won over from the start. The first recipes I tried tasted super delicious and the quantities were really sufficient. In November 2020 - in corona quarantine - I then decided to follow the plan really consistently and just keep going, no matter what. And that was the beginning of my weight loss story. By August 2021, 35 lbs were gone, and I'm fitter than ever.
feastr formed the basis for my weight loss with the delicious recipes. It made me find joy in eating healthy, and most importantly, the app did the calorie counting for me.
The big goal is, of course, to maintain the same healthy diet. I would also like to build a few muscles with CrossFit and just be fit and healthy for life.
Everyone who can perhaps identify with my story, but also those who have completely different requirements and would like to change something. Believe in yourself and stay tuned - consistency is key!
