Diet, Workout, and Fitness

If you follow me on my various social media sites, you have probably seen me post progress images regarding my workouts, diet, and overall fitness. I have received questions from several people about my fitness specifics via direct message, and I’ve decided to make this post rather than answer them all individually. So here we go!

WORKOUT

First off, as you should know, I work out regularly, 5 days of the week to be exact! My routine changes depending on my mood and specific areas of my body that I may want to isolate for greater gains or definition. Here is my current workout regiment!

DIET

Second, there’s diet. I’ve recently finished my first Whole30. I started off hating Whole30 but now I’m looking forward to starting up again. Whole30 is what it advertises itself to be, which is a lifestyle change rather than just a set of dietary restrictions for a particular result. Don’t me wrong, there is a huge list of dietary restrictions, but the goal here isn’t to lose weight or inches, but instead to change your relationship with food so that you can make better dietary choices moving forward.

FITNESS

Lastly, one of my personal goals is to lower my body fat. After several discussions with fitness minded friends and some research I decided to try intermittent fasting. There are different ways to do intermittent fasting so I advice clicking the link above and doing some research for yourself if you’re interested. For me, intermittent fasting consists of 2 fasting periods and 1 feasting period. I am awake for about 18 hours on most days, waking at 10AM and going to bed at 4AM. My fasting periods are from 10AM when I wake up to 4PM and from midnight to when I go to sleep at 4AM. My feasting period is from 4PM to midnight. I take in all of my calories for the day in this 8 hour window. So far the results have been pretty great!
