Hey guys, guess who’s back!! Sorry I’ve been completely MIA on the blog the past few weeks. It’s been very crazy. I’m more active on Instagram though, so if you want semi-updates from yours truly, make sure you follow me on there! 🙂 Now, the reason I’m writing this blog is to discuss something that is close to my heart: fear of food

To be honest, this post has been saved for three months, in my drafts, as I was waiting for the inspiration to hit me. I’ve been going through a rougher patch, where I went back to old habits in regards to food. I was, once again, scared of eating something different or outside of my usual food choices, even though I’m following a flexible diet and count macros to hit my daily numbers. For some reason, I was still scared to eat that ice cream cone, even though I could make it fit into my daily macros.

Maybe it’s just me, but I can really see the fitness industry booming in the last two years. More people want to be fit, healthy, and happy. More people join gyms, and sadly, more people buy into the whole Fit Tea Detoxes or Detox Wraps *shameless eye roll*. Being a personal trainer, many people come to me for advice on so and so diet or training regimen. Very often, their misconceptions on training or diet aren’t based off of something they read, but sadly, by something a previous (or current) personal trainer advised them to do. Now, I’ll be very polite throughout this entire post, but I might shake some feathers with some people. Oh, well.

I’m am currently writing this from my bed, surrounded by cough syrup and buried in blankets, so please bare with me as I try to summon my strength to write this. Some sentences may not make sense, blame it on the cough syrup and the lack of food in my body. Speaking of food (smooth transition, I know), let me actually address what the title states: why your flexible diet isn’t working.

Hi, my name is Sarah, and I am addicted to carbohydrates. I don’t care what form or shape they come in, I love them all equally. Being a carb-lover, imagine my reaction when I had to go on a low carb diet last October. I thought it would be impossible for me to sustain a low carb diet, mostly because I love carbs so much. I didn’t even think about the benefits it will bring to my body, I just thought – no. Regardless of my feelings towards the approach, I trust my coach’s knowledge in his craft and my body, therefore I went forward and did it. I tried the low carb diet. Here’s what happened.

Dieting isn’t easy. You want to lose weight though, which means you have to make some sacrifices in order to reach your goals. Sometimes, this means choosing the vegetables instead of the donuts. Sometimes, it means having the self-control to eat half the donut, because the other half doesn’t fit your calories for the day.

Binge eating is the cause of many athletes’ weight gain after competing or after being in a calorie deficit. Normal individuals can also be victims to binge eating, restricting their calorie intake during the week to finally cave and binge on the weekend. This cycle can mess with one’s metabolism and hormones, turning one’s body into a fat gaining machine. This article will discuss how I overcame my binge eating and what recovery entails.

You read many things online about protein requirements. Most of the time, you’ll hear people say, “eat more protein, bro!”. The bro is optional, but you get my point. You hear everyone around you claiming that protein is the most important macronutrient, that you need protein to gain muscle mass. They’re definitely right – you do need protein to gain muscle mass. Do you need protein to lose weight? What are the protein requirements for someone looking to bulk? To lose fat and keep lean body mass (LBM)?

In this week’s blog post, I want to address a question/complaint I often get: will squats make my legs look big? Usually, it’s followed by the statement: I don’t want to get too bulky or lifting heavy will make me look too big. Ah, if only it was that easy to put on muscle mass. This post isn’t about weightlifting (if you want all the details of lifting weights, you can read Lift Faster: The Science of Weightlifting), it’s about squats. Why should you squat?

It’s early in the morning. You wake up. Move around between your sheets, trying to find the motivation to get out of bed. You throw the covers off your legs and sit up on the side of your mattress. You try to open your eyes, but they feel so heavy. Opening them is hard, like they’re stuck together with glue. Your face feels like it’s dragging, as if it got longer and heavier overnight. You stumble out of bed and somehow find yourself in the bathroom. You do your business and then walk up to the sink, to wash your face and wake yourself up. Every leg you move or finger you lift feels heavy, as if you’re carrying ten pounds of extra weight. You step on the scale, the number increased by five pounds from yesterday morning. You start tearing up. You feel bloated and obviously look bloated too, since the scale sees it too. This day is shaping up to be a pain.
