MY NUTRITION JOURNEY

An incredibly important part of your road to fitness is what you eat: the amount of protein, calories, healthy fats and carbs you take in each day and I love to take in lots of them. I don't usually follow a meal plan and try to eat intuitive as it seems to work best for my body and I feel like stressed about always checking how much i'm eating. BUT with that being said I still like to add in my meals once in awhile to MyFitnessPal to track and see how I am doing if I feel like dieting down for a trip or a photo shoot.

My Mindset When it Comes to Food

My mental health and physical feeling plays a huge role in my relationship with food. I have a lot of sensitive when its comes to food, I get bloated, fatigued, depressed, when i eat something that doesn't agree with my body. I try an listen to my body and nourish with things that make me feel good. With that being said I still struggle with maintaining a perfect "diet" that fits with my body and that's OK. Don't worry about following a diet perfectly "unless your prepping for a competition" just eat what feels good for your body and try not to over eat and listen to your body when it's full.

 

ALL ABOUT MARCOS

Some feel it's important  to track their macro-nutrients in order to meet their goals. However, it's also important to keep in mind that everyone's goal is different-and therefore everyone's macros should be different
Lets simplify things:
To lose weight- you must burn more calories than you consume. The more you burn, the more you can consume, etc. You get the point. It's also important to focus on the QUALITY of calories you're consuming. 
The easiest way to ensure quality calories? EAT REAL FOOD. 

AND REMEMBER: DO NOT OBSESS. Counting calories can become truly obsessive and detrimental to your mental clarity. Beware and practice balance, babe.

I sometimes go to the gym twice a day, Cardio in the morning and weight in the evening. On these days I usually up my protein and carbs as i'm burning my than my body is use too. I usually always have a few protein balls or a planet-based protein shake after the gym to make sure i'm getting that post workout fuel I need. On rest days I still follow my same meal plan that do on lifting days, I usually only cut out the post workout snacks as i'm usually not as hungry on those days.

REST DAYS VS GYM DAYS

An incredibly important part of your road to fitness is what you eat: the amount of protein, calories, healthy fats and carbs you take in each day and I love to take in lots of them. I don't usually follow a meal plan and try to eat intuitive as it seems to work best for my body and I feel like stressed about always checking how much i'm eating. BUT with that being said I still like to add in my meals once in awhile to MyFitnessPal to track and see how I am doing if I feel like dieting down for a trip or a photo shoot. Here is a few more tips I follow when preparing for a trip or a shoot:

DIET IS SO IMPORTANT

1. Water. I Drink as much water as possible. At least 8 glasses per day.

2. No Alcohol or Soft Drinks and all other juices, I cut them out.

3.Endless Veggies. I snack on them instead of chips, or granola bars.

4.If craving sweets  I snack on fruit or a healthy protein ball.
