A new mom with a healthy lifestyle before giving birth learns the ABC of eating good foods and exercising with the help of JoinCrave mobile app.
Oana G. is a 31 years old mother who enjoys traveling and cooking. Before giving birth one year and a half ago, she had a very active lifestyle with plenty of weekly exercising but also an active job as a restaurant manager. Oana enjoys being a mom and says it is an extraordinary experience but this new role turned her usual schedule upside down.
Even if she worked out until her 8th month of pregnancy, after giving birth she started to spoil herself with food after putting her baby to sleep so the kilos added up in an instant. When she couldn’t control it anymore, she knew she needed help so she enrolled in the JoinCrave program. She knew about it from the gym and she was sure Cori is the best choice to help her out. This is Oana’s story after managing to drop 14 kilos with JoinCrave.
Need for a change
I knew I needed the JoinCrave program when I didn’t feel myself anymore. I was getting tired so fast and I didn’t recognize myself in the mirror. I was never skinny, I always fought the kilos with different diets but this time all I wanted was to feel better and lighter. I just wanted to go back to the appearance I had before the pregnancy.
JoinCrave was of enormous help to me. The community is genuinely united, both coaches and other members. I loved the support I was getting in real-time. I learned so many things about healthy eating. For example, never skip meals, eat my veggies, eat carbs and still lose weight. Moreover, making mistakes is human so when you make them just go back to your usual diet the next day and everything will be ok.
Better mood after the first week
I learned so many things about healthy eating with the help of JoinCrave. It’s what kept me going while aiming to lose 14 kilos because I saw its efficiency and I felt better after the first week only, when I lost 2 kilos. It was 4 months of work for me to reach the weight I had before the pregnancy and I still have to lose some but I feel so much better on all levels. Besides learning to eat better foods, the 300 minutes of exercising per week are non-negotiable to me.
