There is no wrong answer
There is nothing wrong with the above picture. She looks healthy and all I really find wrong is she is in need of a bang trim. What does she eat? Probably lots of fruit, salads, and vegetables. She enjoys herself on the weekend slacking on her diet because she hass been strict all week. She enjoys long leisure runs and lifts little dumbbells every now and then. If something comes up it’s not a problem. She’ll skip her workout or eat at a drive thru…no biggie. Again, nothing wrong with this. She is happy with herself.
This girl likes her muscle. What does she eat? ALOT. Meals are spaced every 2-3 hours, each meal between 200-400 calories. All meals include protein and carbs. The more muscle you have the more your body will burn all day long. Meals are for example, oatmeal with egg whites and whey, fish,veggies and rice, chicken and sweet potatoes and healthy fats spread out when her body needs it. Why does she carry a cooler? Seh’s NOT stopping at a drive thru or going off of her meal plan. Her workouts are killer. She is sprinting until she is about to puke, lifting until you can’t lift anymore. Oh, you want to go to the mall at noon? Make it 2p she has to get in her workout first.
These are just 2 different types of physiques. There is no wrong answer. To each their own. The last may sounds extreme to some people. I mean 5 years ago I would have thought she was off her rocker.
I started with my trainer in 2007. Before this I ate maybe 700 calories a day. I worked out out like a freak and just figured I was meant to be fluffy.
After only 8 months with Tony I learned how to eat right and put on the muscle I wanted. It wasn’t easy. At first I felt like I was missing out. Now I look at pizza and it doesn’t even look good. I look at a can of nuts or jar of almond butter and THAT looks good 🙂 I do still enjoy treats every now and then. Like when i’m on a cruise! I always say don’t feel sorry for me. I enjoy the work it takes to look how I want.
I don’t mean for this post to be taken the wrong way. I just want others to know that what I do may seem extreme to some. I DO eat and I DO workout alot. I’ve always loved to work out. I would rather eat chicken and broccoli and be hungry again in 2 hours than to eat 2 slices of pizza and get heartburn. For me this obvisouly works. I do have a magic weight number that I want to be at and for me it is healthy and sustainable. This came about after reading little April’s post yesterday. She is doing what she needs to build muscle and doing well I might add. She keeps getting hounded and I feel like she’s my little sister 🙂
What’s your story? How often and what kinds of things do you eat throughout the day? Someday I might change my tune. I find that getting older you experiment more when you are having issues. Your body is a science experiment. You have to play around until you find what works for you. I don’t recommend the starvation diet because it does NOT work!!!!
