I was so super excited and proud to be featured in a health magazine and what an amazing experience did I have with my photoshoot…if only I could say the same about my article.
It was a bittersweet moment as I began reading and realizing how I have been misquoted. I never got to read a copy of the article before it went to print. Today was my first glance…
There are a few things I must clarify, and I feel I owe it to you. I believe in clean eating, all in moderation, lower in carbs and higher in protein due to my strength training exercise regime. It was also published that I have ‘decided to take anti-depressants and reclaim my life’. I have reclaimed my life but made a point to do so in a clean and natural way. It was my personal decision not to take any medication. I feel especially passionate about this point because this is one of the reasons why I had created this page…to share my journey of how my entire life and wellbeing has altered by eating healthier, losing the excess weight and becoming the happiest and healthiest I have ever been.
I am obsessed with health and fitness magazines and happen to enjoy the inspiring articles in this magazine- but the magazine promotes banting dieting. I am no banter, Mediterranean-, egg- or any specific dieter. I adopted a Clean Eating lifestyle limiting processed foods, being more active and mindful.
I wish I could have felt happier about this feature- it’s somewhat contradictory to what I stand for.
I will remain proud of my accomplishment and my journey…I guess this forms part of it…another valuable lesson learned.
Staying true to my journey and my path ahead.
Thank you for all your love and support.
