Nikki shares that she began dieting in junior high when her entire family went on a diet program together. Looking back over life, Nikki realizes, “I was always either on or off a diet.”
In 2018, she found IF through carb cycling. She dabbled in it, but was't consistent. She read Delay, Don't Deny in 2019. In May of 2020, after her second pregnancy, Nikki went back to IF. She has lost 20 pounds, has a ton of energy and improved mental clarity, is more active, and no longer needs her afternoon latte!
The advice Nikki would give to new IFers: "Be patient. The weight loss may not happen right away. Don't overthink it. It's a lifestyle, not a diet."
