About Healthy Weight Loss Help .com and how it all began.
Hi my name is Catherine and I created this web site because of my passion for healthy living.
I had struggled with weight loss and illness since my late teens.
In my 18th year I was diagnosed with UC (ulcerative colitis) which is a nasty disease that makes it difficult to properly digest your food.
Doctors quickly put me on medications to control the symptoms. To my disbelieve their advise was not to eat any raw foods which of course included fruit, vegetables and salads. You know all the things that are good for you.
My new meal planning was filled with hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries, pizza, meat and potatoes, in other words, a whole lot of things that weren't good for you. It was certainly easy enough to follow because after all it included pizza, one of my favorites.
Coming from a family that wasn't genetically skinny to begin with, man oh man, did the pounds every start adding up. I really ballooned out.
I became tired, overweight, depressed, frustrated and my self esteem was at an all time low.
It seemed that all the medications and meal planning advice were making things worse.
That was the turning point in my life and that's how this site about healthy weight loss help .com slowly began.
Total frustration led me on a journey to find out how to lose the weight for good and cure my digestive issues.
I spent countless hours studying, researching and experimenting with every diet plan out there and analyzed medical books, journals and all the self help books I could get my hands on. The whole point was to learn as much about nutrition and how the digestive system works in our bodies.
Then I applied what I learned into my own life. I started to eat more real foods, yes, lots of fruits and vegetables, the same foods I was told to avoid.
But the most important thing I learned was making simple changes (and they are easy once you know what and how) really added up which helped promote weight loss without the pain of dieting.
I’m happy to say that I am at my ideal weight most of the time (I'm definitely not perfect) but most of all I am in remission.
Now this didn't happen overnight. Natural and healthy weight loss does take time.
