fitness questions 

I am often asked about my body ‘transformation’ The only transformation that has really occurred is that I built quite a bit of muscle over the last 5 years. So at this point it’s not like my body goes through ‘transformations’.

 I have always been very petite and lean. If I don’t lift heavy 5 days a week and eat 6 meals a day I lose weight.  

The only thing that gets ‘different’ is when I have a show coming up I get abnormally lean- I stayed under 10% body fat for 6 months this year! (I was down to 7% at leanest)

It’s an unnatural, unhealthy state for women to be even at 10% body fat- the average woman needs about 15% body fat for their hormones to function properly and not incur heart damage hair loss, bone density loss and many other health problems. Having 10% body fat and under makes me very vascular and defined- my muscle pops! It also makes me have less energy and I am constantly hungry! I have to really plan my days- and I do! I love to have my full energy when we meet and if I am not able to be at my best I will decline a date. 

(Advanced planning is the best all the time. I get to have something to look forward to and getting ready is part of my turn on. )

Every year I pick a few shows and diet down/lean out to prepare for the stage. It is a process to lean out (diet down/reduce body fat) and a process to restore body fat to healthy levels (reverse diet).

I often post unfiltered non photo shopped pictures on Twitter, my website and blog so you can get an accurate idea of what I currently look like. 

My natural state in ‘off season’ is around 14% body fat; which is an athlete level percent of body fat.

It always amazes me how many complements I get during my ‘off season’ my body is softer and smoother. In my off season I am not as strict about my carb intake and will eat stuff I bake or order dessert! You have to live a little and I would rather eat dessert than bread lol. 

I always train and eat my meals weather or not I have a show coming up- it is just a way of life. 

No matter what time of year it is I am always lean compared to ‘average’ people. My natural body type, commitment to training and food prepping shows. So please understand this is who I am and what I do. I don’t expect everyone else to do what I do. I am not concerned with what you do or why you don’t do what I do- it’s not my business to judge or compare. If you want to make changes in your life I will absolutely support you. Please do not feel self conscious or insecure just be yourself! I am here to accept you where you are at and as you are.
