Getting in shape is HARD.
When you get to that stage where you know you have to try and reduce your fat content, build a little muscle or even just feel healthier, something needs to change. Invariably, the overwhelming factor in the getting in shape equation comes down to what we fuel our bodies with; our nutrition.
Weighing 119 kilograms at 188 centimetres tall (6’2ish in the old language) I was squarely sitting in the ‘obese’ category and in need of change. I knew this; my family knew this and my reflection reminded me the baggy clothes weren’t hiding anything.
My initial stage of weight loss was from counting calories – just eating better through a food diary. Before long I knew I had to find something that suited my lifestyle and foods I liked - a mind-shift that involved telling myself I’m fasting certain foods and consuming others.
Enter Justine and her fantastic cookies..!
Most of my diet is natural foods, low-carb, high fats, relaxing into this after initially being on a very strict keto regime. Foods that come in a packet generally don’t fit the bill, however taking the opportunity to have a Justine’s cookie with a coffee in the afternoon or following a workout does. And they’re such a great treat!
Experts often say we need cheat meals or treats and Justine’s cookies are the best of both worlds, in that they are a treat and yet fit within my food choices. They certainly help for a nice protein boost without the massive sugar load or high carbohydrate content.
I’m a massive fan and it’s fair to say my local supermarket knows this! I’m now buying them on-line so I can get them delivered. At home I now have my own designated ‘Dad Tupperware’ container to prove it too!
If you’re looking at making a change, implementing a new eating plan, or just want something nice to eat, I definitely recommend them. The bulk of diets or your own individual lifestyle change can and should include Justine’s cookies.
Take it from me – I’m now 77 kilograms, with a total loss of 42 kilograms.
And I eat Justine’s cookies!
