Hi there!! My name is Lisa Madson, one of the coaches that lead the 90/10 nutrition community! I am so excited to join with you on your journey to better nutrition and health! A little background on me:
I’m a mother of 3 adult children, and a grandmother “nana” of 5 grandchildren. I’m also a marathon runner and triathlete. I live in WA state and love the Pacific Northwest and the outdoors! These days, when I’m not preparing for a marathon or triathlon, my life is filled with spoiling my grandchildren and my 3 fur babies, a Golden Retriever, A Great Dane, and a Papillion, (talk about extremes), and coaching 90/10 nutrition groups….
I discovered 90/10 nutrition in September 2012. I had previously lost about 70 lbs, but still had about 40 lbs to lose. I had been at a standstill with my weight loss for over a year. I had tried every diet known to man, it seemed! I had mostly been successful losing weight by restricting my calories to as low as 1200 calories per day and being super active. At the time I joined my first 90/10 challenge I had been training for my first marathon. Even with running 30-40 miles in a week, and restricting my calories, I could still not lose the weight. I would cut my calories way down and then binge eat on my long run days because it was IMPOSSIBLE to keep my calories low on those day (at least for ME). Seemed every diet I tried was NOT sustainable. Even the ones that were “successful” were impossible to maintain.
After 2 weeks of eating 90/10 nutrition I remember thinking, “I could EAT like this forever!!” It was the first time in my life that I was able to lose weight and NOT be starving! I thought it was too good to be true…But, it wasn’t! I continued to lose weight until I reached my goal weight, 4 months after starting my first challenge group.
From that point on, I knew I wanted to help others that have struggled with trying to find a sustainable nutrition “diet” system. I hesitate using the “D” word because 90/10 nutrition is the farthest thing from a diet that I’ve ever known. I truly believe that I WILL eat like this forever!
