What if I told you we got these results with ZERO food restrictions and WITHOUT added cardio?! 🤯
(Please note… calories NEVER went below 1600 AND these results were achieved DURING quarantine)!!!
I promise I’ve heard it ALL before, “No Serena, my body doesn’t work like that! I can’t even eat more than 1200 calories without gaining weight!”
I’ve even SAID it before myself! (Long before I truly understood how the body worked)!
I’m NOT special or an exception… and neither are you! I’m a human being just like all of you, and so is Mallory (transformation posted above).
You THINK you can’t eat bread 🍞 or carbs (seriously, how sad, I LOVE carbs and eat them all the time)!
You THINK you can’t eat over 1200 calories without gaining weight.
You THINK you have to work out like an insane person doing double o back to back workouts to get results (and keep them).
But this just ISNT true. In fact, OVER doing the workouts and having the WRONG approach to nutrition is why MANY people who come to me for help are not where they want to be.
You have to work WITH your body! (THAT is non-negotiable). You should work SMARTER not necessarily harder… 🧠 💪
The BIG problem is this takes TIME 🐢 but people are impatient AF if they don’t drop 5 lbs in the first week & get fed up and give up within a few weeks of slow progress.
BUT IT’S A MARATHON NOT A SPRINT.
Another common problem…maybe your plan is so low calorie (or low in one macronutrient group) and unsustainable that by the time the weekend comes you totally say “F**k it, I’ll go back to my plan on Monday” 🤦♀️ I hear this ALL the time too!
I can promise you… it doesn’t have to be this way!
There are few basic concepts that are applied to multiple eating strategies (IIFYM, meal plans, intuitive eating) that will set you up for success. Here are my top 5️⃣
1. Regular eating times (consistency & regulating hunger)
2. Balanced meals (fueling your body & activity properly)
3. Adequate water and fiber (good hydration & digestion)
4. Movement (Increase calorie output :))
5. Periodization of programming (Programming designed for you and your goals, NOT random uninspired workouts)
Are you ready to start working smarter instead of so EFFING hard (with little results)?!
What’s your biggest struggle when it comes to your fitness goals? Tell me, I want to know :)
