I hear all the time girls saying I want a big booty or guys say I want a bigger chest but they eat like birds, literally. If you want to grow, if you want to change your body, you need to think about growing then leaning out. Since there is no way (unless you decide to take performance enhancing drugs) to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. You need to do one and then do the other.
This weekend you and your friends decided to go out and get some food. You ordered a chicken salad because you want to eat something clean or because you want to be a good person. One of your friends, instead, decides to order a burger. Would you judge her? Would you tell her she is a bad person for ordering a burger? No? That’s what I thought.
Eating out is something we can’t avoid, it is a huge part of our lives. This is one of the reasons why I believe that being on a diet that requires you to eat chicken, sweet potatoes, and broccoli out of a tupperware container every three hours isn’t sustainable. Trust me when I say that this kind of approach isn’t going to work. Do you really think you will be able to stick to the same diet/meal plan for the rest of your life?
Last week, I was reading some fitness articles and one of them focused on The Myths in the Fitness Industry. While I was taking notes, I couldn’t believe that some people still think that those statements are true. But honestly, what upsets me the most is that there are still people out there that promote and support this way of thinking.
Blend: 1/2 cup cashew milk, 1 tsp chia seeds, 1 scoop of protein powder (I used Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup from PEScience), 100 g sweet potato (cooked), 35 g banana.
If you have been following me on social media, you know I’ve been following IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros/Flexible Dieting) for a long time. Here I’m just going to share my experience, thoughts, and the reasons why I think it is so beneficial.
