I am autistic and live independently. I started with the Lite n’ Easy meal delivery service one year ago, and since then, I have seen a massive improvement in my health and diet.
Being able to pack my esky with my lunch and snacks to take to my part time job is just so easy.
Over many years I have struggled with my diet and nutrition, using support staff to help me prepare and cook meals or resorting to buying takeaway meals. With Lite n' Easy I don’t have to worry about shopping or buying takeaway anymore.
Being lighter on the bike I have seen a massive improvement in my performance. I was able to lose 15 kilos and now I am more easily able to maintain my target weight for competition.
I currently hold 4 national cycling records. Earlier this year I was accepted into the Queensland State Para Cycling Team. This was a massive boost for my confidence, with the extra training and assistance with nutrition promising to improve my riding even more.
I now compete with able-bodied cyclists in open events and recently finished 59th out of 230 riders in the 160-kilometre Noosa Classic. I am seeing better times and speeds than I had in 2020.
