“ If your doctor lifts, he or she will know these things.
Protein has gotten a bad reputation.
1. In healthy individuals, high protein diets have never been show to harm your kidneys. In fact, at very high levels done in Jose Antonio's lab, they showed no harm over a year of a very high protein diet. There are some big reviews recently showing the same. I would discuss with your doctor if you do have kidney disease because you'll want to adjust.
2. People always ask if they can handle more than 30 grams of protein in each feeding. This was started due to protein synthesis maxing out around that level but you also have to look into protein breakdown. Higher levels of protein in a meal my lower protein breakdown and also be used for other things in the body.
3. The last thing I hear often is how protein is bad for your bones. This is BS ... ESPECIALLY if you combine it with resistance training. Eat it up and stay hydrated and lift weights.
If I could go back in time and say something to myself, I’d tell her several things:
I’d tell her that her own self imagine shouldn’t ever be dictated by what others say. That having a 6 pack and flat stomach won’t bring her happiness (even if she thought it would). That even when she achieved her goals, she would still think it wasn’t good enough.
I’d tell her that overtraining and being TOO strict on her diet would cause a binge eating disorder, that she would end up eating her feelings because she was now “too skinny”. I’d tell her to let go of the past, Bullies move on with their lives and unfortunately, completely forget who they bullied, and just how much it impacted their daily lives, mental well-being and completely deplete their self esteem. I’d tell her to stop letting negative thoughts invade every aspect of her life, and that dwelling on the negatives in every situation would only lead to self destruction. I’d tell her that having a “thigh gap” wouldn’t suddenly make her beautiful to the people who’d called her ugly through high school. I’d tell her that being shredded wouldn’t make her any less lonely, or being her friendships. And most importantly, I’d tell her that nobody else’s opinions, words or actions would ever dictate her life decisions, self esteem, mental well-being or self respect in her future, and that she is good enough. I’d tell her that she will find her own inner strength and conquer the past and never let it dictate her future again.
Looking back on that photo now goes to show how truly unhealthy I really was. Zoom in on my arms and look at how veiny I am and how bony I look. It’s saddening to see that I let everyone’s opinions of me get the better of me and that I never felt good enough, but now I can say I am strong, I am happy and I am confidant and those twig legs are going to one day be giants. #truth#motivation#fitness#motivation#weightloss#transformation#progress#weightgain#quads#legs#eatingdisorder#eatingdisorderrecovery#health#mentalhealth#bodypositivity#screwthescale#gains#gym#fitness#fitfam#healthspo#fitspo#bbg#legday
These pictures were taken about 11 months apart. I talk all the time about just starting or being consistent and persistent or having the perseverance to push through any obstacle in your path, but I know all too well that those are sometimes ‘impossible’ tasks. It’s pictures like this, that are a sanity check for me, that show me the hard work that I have accomplished. It tells a story about literally hundreds of hours in the gym, thousands of miles on the treadmill, thousands of reps. It tells the story of hard work and determination and grit and mental fortitude and sacrifice etc etc etc. But there are still days I struggle, still days that I’m not happy with how look. Because the person you see every day in the mirror dulls you to the changes that actually taking place. Sometimes it takes a picture like this or someone you haven’t seen in quite some time to remind you of the changes you’ve actually undergone. Don’t be so hard on your self. Relax. The work is worth it and over time it will get you to where you want to be. You can do it! I believe in you!! #persistence#consistency#perserverance#attitude#mentality#fitness#fitnessjourney#fitnessmotivation#fitnesstransformation#weightlossjourney#weightloss#weightlosstransformations#transformation#youcandoit#epcot#epcotartfestival#disney#depression#relax#perspective
To the people who choose to leave negative comments on my videos & progress photos, either on my page or other fitness pages, this video is especially for YOU😉😚💖💖 comments like “you’re still disgusting” and “why did she waste money on crop tops” will never bring me down. Ever. And we all know ur intentions of leaving those crude comments are not to help me in any way shape or form but to in fact try to hurt me. Comments like “why would you let yourself get that big in the first
Place?” is comical to me because ur life is so perfect, and every decision you ever made was flawless, am I right?🤔😇 how many times & how many different ways am I gonna say that you cannot stop my shine?👸🏽 I say this not to solely give u the attention ur looking for, but to let anyone else know who deals with trolls & bullies online & in real life how insignificant they are and how they only have the power to bring you down and hurt you, if you allow them to! don’t let them. Continue being true to yourself, continue being the light that this world needs. Smile brighter, laugh louder & dance harder, all whilst being unaffected by their dark energy. Sooner or later, they’ll get the message😉 There, I gave them their few seconds they asked for, now shoo fly😂
