About Me

For nearly my entire adolescence, I have been either overweight or obese. At the start of my third decade on this planet I decided to make some significant changes to better my body and my mind. What followed is my fit life adventure.

  1. Dear Amanda,
    You give such hope to someone to lose weight. You are amazing and you look wonderful. Such a beautiful accomplishment . It is wonderful that you share what you have done to accomplish your weight goal. I am going to start this way of eating starting Monday 10/17/16 in hopes I can hear from you in an email. Thanks for sharing.
    Always,

  3. Amanda: I so very much enjoyed you artilce in Women’s World. I just got the magazine about 45 minutes ago and have read the article twice. I have lost about 73 lbs. since 2012 following the basic Diabetic Diet. I am not Diabetic but my mom was. I find your eating plan very interesting. I am not exactly stuck in my weight loss, but it is getting challenging to stay on it and the scale creeps up every so often. I am 65 have A-Fib, high blood pressure and had a TIA in January. My doctor is quite pleased with me but I need some kind of change. I would love to have a clearer guide-line of what you eat. Please help. Thank you Caren M. Farquhar e-mail- ggreen0513@rogers.com

    • Hi there! Thanks for the comment! My latest blog post gives actual sample meals that I ate a year ago as well as today. You’ll find they’re quite similar. As well, I did a blog post in April that you can find in my archive section on the home page all about my dietary choices as well. The key to me choosing foods is just to ensure they are as little processed as possible. Other than that, I’ll eat just about anything! Feel free to send specific questions to my email at amgarant@hotmail.ca

  9. Just read your article in Woman’s World. You look fantastic. The article and your blog has inspired me tyr this “plan” — (I was seriously thinking about joining weight watchers yet again before I picked up the magazine). Love your blog. I’m wondering if you ‘d be willing to share some daily food journals (for lack of a better term). The magazine had helpful ideas, but the meal planning it the toughest part for me-if I don’t want smoked salmon on my toast for example, what’s a good substitute? I hate counting calories, etc., so I don’t want to spend lots of time trying to figure out what is 1500 calories per day.

    • I plan to have a blog post up soon with pictures of what I eat in a day and that should give lots of meal ideas. There was a post I did back in April about my food choices, so in the meantime why don’t you give that a read. Message me anytime!
