Most people probably wouldn't characterize weight-loss programs as lenient.
No, the words that usually come to mind are more along the lines of "difficult," "impossible" and "I need a cheeseburger now, or else I will die."
Caitlin Rose, on the other hand, had the privilege of enjoying pizza, wine and burgers during her eight-week program.
Rose, 27, knew she wanted to start losing weight after she managed to rip two pairs of jeans in the span of one week. At the time, she weighed in at about 163 pounds.
After dumping her jeans in the trash, Rose — who works as an executive assistant in Sydney, Australia — signed up for something called RAW by Varlah, which offers a myriad of fitness programs, all designed to cater to various ages, fitness levels and interests.
The program costs $69.95 for unlimited workouts and a nutrition plan. It also incorporates weight lifting into its on-demand exercise classes.
Rose told Daily Mail Australia,
The biggest appeal of the program to her was the ability to continue eating all the foods she loved while she trained.
Over the course of eight weeks, Rose lost approximately 13 pounds and 40 cm off her body measurements.
As if that wasn't awesome enough, the health benefits she's seen from the program have actually gone beyond getting her body in shape.
Rose is so pleased with the results she saw with RAW, she's already signed herself up for another of Varlah's programs, called DICED.
So, not only has the 27-year-old seen some amazing physical health benefits with this program, but it sounds like she even found a way to cultivate a natural, intrinsic motivation to keep her weight-loss journey going.
