You may have seen them pop up in our articles and on the website: the Fitgirlcode Guide. Maybe you've already seen some Fit Girls in our articles or on Instagram who have started with our guide and have shown their transformation. But you might still be in doubt... You've already tried so many diets, so what is it about our guide that makes it worth it? Well, first of all, it's not a diet. The guide is a helping hand in learning how to live a healthy lifestyle. No crash diet, no hunger, no crazy ingredients you've never heard of. Nothing of that! To show you that our guide can really help you, we're happy to share some success stories we've gathered! ?
Karlijn: "After a lot of diets and an attempted to eating healthy, I looked for help to lose weight because I wanted to lose those extra kilos. Of course, I had hoped that the process of losing weight would be faster and more drastic, but when I look back on it, I had eaten so deliciously all those weeks and did see quite a difference in the end. Meanwhile, I'm 6 months further and I see that my body has changed quite a bit. And it's still changing! Every two weeks I make a progress picture and I always see a difference. And I see that if you want to change in the long run, that change doesn't have to happen fast. Change takes time, no matter how difficult it is (I really have no patience at all...). Every step forward that I make, I truly enjoy. Whether I break my personal running record or get way less tired after doing an exercise, I'm proud and happy with what I have accomplished and what I am now."
Iris: "The recipes (more than 80!) have been prepared in collaboration with nutritionists. The ingredients are easily found in the supermarket, so no fancy products for which you have to travel half the world for to find them. In addition, the recipes are very easy. Everything is described step by step of what you need and how exactly to do it. Also, the macros are listed, which may be useful for some people if they don't adhere to the strict dietary schedule, but want to keep their food more or less up to date. So, you can just use the recipes separate from the dietary schedule."
Mandy: "On the Instagram account of an acquaintance, I saw all kinds of delicious meals and recipes. I asked her what she did and how she got her hands on all those recipes. She referred me to Fitgirlcode, and to me that seemed like the perfect new beginning. It was time for me to start a new lifestyle and leave everything bad behind me. The biggest highlight of my journey was finding a balance for my body. I've always found that very difficult. Now that I've finally figured out what works for my body and I know what I can and can't eat, I'm starting to lose weight and I hope a lot more. By losing 17.5 pounds with the Fitgirlcode Guide and quite a few inches, I also see that I'm being noticed much more. Before, I used to see myself as the chubby or ugly duckling. There weren't many people paying any attention to me. Since I started my Fit Journey, more people have received admiration for me. This feeling is actually pretty great."
Melle: "Before I started, I mainly hoped for inspiration for recipes and workout exercises. Also, insights on how I could do things differently. But as time went by and I got to know the Guide, my interest in macros was also awakened. The Guide has taught me a lot of new recipes and a different way on how to stay fit. It was the mindset that I really needed to get used to, but now that I am I feel very good about it. The aim of the Guide has already been achieved! In addition, my personal progress is also good. Since last December, I started strength training to get my skin tight. Every 6 to 7 weeks I measured myself. During the last measurement I had only just started working with the Guide, for 2.5 weeks. And guess what, for the first time since December there was a real difference. My weight had increased, my fat percentage had fallen by 1.5% and my muscle mass had grown. I'm building muscle!"
Gudrun: "I think the food section of the guide is really useful for people who have just start with their fit lifestyle. You really get a full dietary schedule, containing more than enough variation in recipes and a complete shopping list. This allows you to start your Fit Journey without having to find out everything by yourself, and you already learn a lot through the schedules alone. Are you already further in your Fit Journey, then you don't need to follow the whole diet plans. You can see yourself which recipes and ideas you want to use and which may inspire you."
Claudia: "The Fitgirlcode Guide gives you handles to hold on too. It specifies what you can eat, how much you can eat, when you need to train and even when you have to take a moment for yourself. This works very well. I used to spend quite some time on exercise preparations on Sunday's. This didn't leave a lot of time for planning my food. The trainings are easy to do at home and with the step-by-step lists and clear pictures you know exactly how to do the exercises. I always went for 100% but after a few days I tended to slack off. With the guide this wasn't the case as I could keep up with it. I wasn't even slightly bothered by cravings or a hungry feeling!"
Happy healthy guide
In case you haven't heard the good news, we have recently launched our second english e-guide, the Happy Healthy Guide! Are you actually doing pretty well on your own when it comes to exercising, but are you struggling to maintain that healthy diet? No stress! The Happy Healthy Guide is here to give you a helping hand with your diet and provides you with a 12-week nutrition plan you can easily follow! The guide has certainly worked for Anna, read her story below.
Anna: "When I started my new job at ThePerfectWedding.nl, some changes didn't go unnoticed. I wasn't surrounded by those die-hard Fit Girls everyday anymore, so I let myself go a little bit. In summary: I exercises less fanatic and I ate less healthy. No idea how much weight I gained exactly because I've thrown my scale out of the window a while ago, but it was definitely a kilo or 5. Maybe even 7... Ouch. The guide made me focussed again. I know how to eat healthy, but by following the nutrition plans in the guide, I became aware of the quantities. You underestimate how many calories you eat unconsciously throughout a day, mainly when snacking. Many people around me doubt that they are going to start with the guide because they are afraid that they will give up when prepping the food in advance. But people, you have to cook anyways, right? Whether you do this the evening before or between noon and lunchtime. You have to do it anyway! This way, you can look forward to that delicious cauliflower curry with coconut in the morning. I rest my case."
