Woman Loses 150 Pounds By Following Simple Rules From Nutritionist – See Her Transformation


At 37 years old, Amanda Wood was deeply unsatisfied with her life — and her own body. Weighing in at 375 pounds, she felt tired, unattractive, and unhealthy. She wanted to change so badly but didn’t know where to start, so in 2015, she got in touch with a nutritionist, who said she needed to do three simple things to start losing weight.

Here’s a #tbt #throwbackthursday With this never ending winter, I wish I was back on this beach….but I sure don’t wish I was back at this size! 🙈 Old photos give amazing perspective as to how far you’ve come, especially when the scale is being a b*+$h! . . . . . . #fatloss #fattofit #fat2fit #obesetobeast #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #weightlossblogger #transformationinprogress #girlswholift #workoutmotivation #countingcalories #weightlosscommunity #healthyhabits #goaldigger #workinprogress #fitlife #extremeweightloss #extremetransformation #beforeandafterweightloss #beforeandduring #naturalweightloss #fitstagram #workforchange #aboutme #bethebeastyoucanbe #naturalweightloss #usedtobenowfree

First, she started with the foods she ate.


“I follow balanced macros, which for me means that I try to ensure I am getting 35 percent of my calories from carbs, 25 percent of my calories from fat, and 40 percent of my calories from protein,” Wood explained.

Exercising was also a crucial part of the process. After consulting a personal trainer and getting started on working out, Wood was surprised to find that she really enjoyed it.

“Now going to the gym is one of my favorite times of the week,” she said.

Skipped the cardio today after today’s crazy spin class and jut focused on a back and bicep workout followed by some abs and accessory muscles. Felt the burn and tried a few new things which was fantastic! Lat pull down, seated dumbbell curl, shotgun row, reverse barbell curl, medicine ball slam, cable row, hammer curl, ez bar curl and then the thigh adductor and abductor machine. Finished up with flutter kicks, sit ups, and dead bugs. . . . . #fatloss #fattofit #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #workoutmotivation #naturalweightloss #countingcalories #weightlosscommunity #healthyhabits #girlswholift #goaldigger #extremeweightloss #150lbslost #sweatitout #obesetobeast #effyourbeautystandards #dailyfitness #workforchange #chasinggoals #weightlossblogger #feeltheburn #bestrongerthanyourexcuses #getupandmove #showyourhustle

Perhaps the most important thing Wood learned was to set several small goals for herself, rather than focusing on her end goal: to lose 200 pounds.

“Five pounds is much more manageable than the 200 pounds.”

She also got into the habit of drinking a lot more water every day.

“Before I started my weight loss journey I drank maybe 1L of water a day and never felt thirst. I have now worked my way up to about 4L of water per day and crave it all the time,” Wood said.

“I’ve replaced all my calorie-filled beverages with zero-calorie options, keep my body well hydrated and feel so much better! I have way less headaches, more energy, less hunger pangs, clearer skin…there are tons of benefits of staying hydrated.”

Wood did a great job of sticking to all of these changes, and over the course of two years, it paid off in a huge way. She’d lost 150 pounds, but gained her life and confidence back. Now she hopes to inspire and encourage others to do the same.

It’s #transformationtuesday – so here is my before and during. No after yet, but I’m working on it. My during may be similar to many peoples before photos, but it took a hell of a lot of hard work and focus to lose the first 150 pounds and I’m pretty proud of how far I’ve come so far! 💪🏻🤛🏻 . . . . . #fatloss #fattofit #fat2fit #obesetobeast #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #weightlossmotivation #weightlossblogger #transformationinprogress #f2f #girlswholift #workoutmotivation #mealsharing #countingcalories #weightlosscommunity #healthyhabits #goaldigger #workinprogress #fitlife #extremeweightloss #extremetransformation #facetoface #beforeandafterweightloss #beforeandduring #naturalweightloss #fitstagram #workforchange #aboutme

“You will have days where you want to give up, where you get off track, or where you struggle. Just don’t give up. Grant yourself grace and get back on track with your next meal or next workout.”
