So, I was chatting with my husband the other day- specifically about diet and muscle definition. He’s been genetically #blessed with a 6 pack since he was 13. Maybe he’s not the best person to talk to about this. As many of you know, the phrase “abs are made in the kitchen” is true. Your diet and nutrition is a surefire way for your abs to peek out.
So, out of curiosity, I decided to conduct a little experiment on myself. I’ve never been one to diet or cut out food groups for the sake of weight loss. I usually workout 5x a week (a mixture of many types of workouts), along with bike commuting and lots of walking. I already live a plant based lifestyle for sustainability reasons- although to be honest I’m less “whole foods” than I’d like to be.
But, in the month of March (this month!), I will be cutting out all ADDED SUGARS (REFINED) from my diet. I’ll be tracking my progress along the way (before/after photos, how I feel and what I eat in a day) on this blog and on my Instagram @fitwithchristie. My goal is to simply see if it makes a difference in how I feel, how I eat and my body composition.
My first post will be a “What I Eat in a Day/Day in the life of a Fitness Instructor” post! Look out for it in a few days!
