"Being on The Biggest Loser taught me how to eat to balance my hormones.".

I went on The Biggest Loser and started eating a low-carb, low-sugar PCOS diet and walking for weight loss, as well as incorporated strength training and HIIT, to reach a healthy weight for me.

About three months after my spinal surgery, I started gaining weight.

I was still having a hard time learning how to exercise with a spinal injury, and for the first time in my life, I felt completely worthless.

I was also told that with PCOS, it's not only difficult to lose weight, but also difficult to maintain a loss.

Enter: Season 11 on The Biggest Loser in 2011.

I had never watched a single episode of The Biggest Loser before my sister Olivia and I were on the show after being scouted by a casting producer.

I had the best and most difficult experience of my life.

It was exhausting and amazing and incredibly life changing at the same time.

The Biggest Loser taught me that the only thing holding me back from the life I always wanted was me.

I learned that a moderately lower-carb eating style works best for my hormones to stay balanced.

I learned that moderation is an eating style.

For the first time, I truly learned about the power of insulin?

I would define my eating plan as a low-sugar, lower-processed carbs eating style.

I do leave room for treats and have learned to respect food as fuel, but I also know that food can be medicine and can truly heal the body.

After the show, I found my ideal weight at around 25-28 percent body fat and learned how to put on muscle so my calorie burn stayed high.

I stay accountable in my Facebook group “The Weigh Down” with other women focusing on health while having a life.

Social media can be a dark place, but with the weight loss community it has been very supportive for me!
