IIFYM ~Why do it?

IIFYM, aka if it fits your macros, is a flexible “diet” that allows you to eat basically what you want (keep in mind you should still focus on a healthy and balanced diet considering we eat healthy for our bodies to truly be healthy so eating nothing but junk totally ruins the purpose) as long as you hit…

12 weeks to Apex program review

Wow, I cannot believe it’s been 12 whole weeks since my last post. Yes I’ve been m.i.a. lately but I had a huge project I was working on! I was one of the few who was picked by the @apexvisionfitness team to go through their workout and diet plan (for free!) for 12 weeks. The…

Finally finished!

Yeaaa!!! After 6 long and aggressive weeks, I have finished my¬†Evolution workout program. Here was the rundown: Week 1: Not very difficult, still challenging though. This is the week you learn the ropes. I really loved weeks 1-3¬†because each week was a new challenge that was fun and different from my normal routine! No results…

The Next Big Step

Over the past few months I have studied my personal training book through and through because I had a goal. I am only 17 and I have dreams bigger than I can explain, but one dream is my career. When I started studying I knew that this was my first step to this specific goal…

Latest update on the Evolution workout

Carb cycling complete

Hey everyone! Here are my final thoughts on carb cycling I had promised, although it took me a little while to get it up. I ended up carb cycling for 2 months because I wasn’t satisfied with how I followed the carb cycling “schedule” during the first month. In those 2 months I did not…

Carb cycle update!

In my last post I explained my new diet which was carb cycling that I was to do for a month or so. After so much traveling in June I barely had a chance to carb cycle as strictly as I’d like to…. Getting the most accurate results are crucial to me so I am…

Low sugar protein pancakes!

Goodmorning everybody! Today is my high carb day for my carb cycling diet which means I FINALLY get to eat pancakes for breakfast! Last night I was brainstorming how I can make pancakes that have basically no sugar and packed with protein. I looked on pintrest for recipes but most of the recipes had bananas……

Carb Cycling

Something I struggle with is finding a diet that can improve my muscle gain while not gaining fat. Because I lift weights 6 days a week, it is extremely important that my muscles do not feel deprived from carbs and protein! I don’t bust my butt at the gym to not see results right? There…

Fresh tomato soup

This is my dad’s homemade tomato soup recipe that is GM diet friendly! From a girl who hates her veggies, he figured out a way to make a complete vegetable soup with 0 seasoning taste GOOD! This recipe is definitely worth trying whether you are doing the GM diet or not. Start out with 3…
