WHY BRITT DOESN’T FAST ANYMORE
These before- and- after photos at right show what happened to 44- year- old Britt McMartin when she stopped skipping meals and started a high- fat, very- low- carb regimen. Here are the thoughts she shared about her experiences with fasting and meal skipping: “Since high school, I was on a pattern of starve- binge. A roller- coaster. I did not realize that I’d been perpetuating the problem each time I skipped or delayed meals, which just made my rebound eating worse. I could not have escaped the pattern, though, had I not also let go of the myths of calorie- counting and low- fat diets. It’s amazing how misled we can become, and it came to affect every aspect of my life and even my ability to conceive.” In our June issue, we’ll share Britt’s full story of how she lost 48 lbs., conquered her decades- long eating disorder and social anxiety, and regained her fertility, her full head of hair, and more after attending an online Total Transformation Program and a Kat James retreat in Scotland. There she learned to “read” her body’s signals to maintain a fat- burning mode and enjoy amazing carb- free, high fat foods, while avoiding the hidden pitfalls of typical Paleo and keto diets.
