Do you cheat? Cheat meal that is! Or as I call it, treat meal. 😛
They are essential for a healthy diet. A few benefits of setting aside a meal to eat anything your little heart desires is:
- Boosts Metabolism
- Prevents you from feeling deprived
- Keeps motivation up
Knowing you have a yummy meal to look forward to is motivation to stay on track until then.
Although my diet is more 80/20. Nutrition experts agree that any diet should adhere to the 90/10 rule, meaning 90 percent should focus on healthy foods, and 10 percent can be devoted to treat meals.
I don't follow IIFYM and fit in fun food during the day, but I do count my macros and use healthy whole foods! I'm still able to live a fun life, go out enjoy drinks and have my treat meals all while staying in shape. Don't get me wrong though, I bust my ass in the gym and I'm pretty much on point with my diet during the week. It's what works for me! It's all about finding the right balance for yourself because everyone's body is different. Do I slip up with my diet during the week sometimes? You sure as hell bet I do. Do I eat too much on the weekend sometimes? YEP. But it's seriously okay. You can't beat yourself up over it. Move past it, make better choices, and never let mistakes stop you from still going after your goal 🤗❤️ this picture was taken the morning after I ate a medium pizza and desert 😜 treat meals are good for you!

Anyone else ok with eating donuts for breakfast?... Sometimes these things just happen in my house🤷🏼♀️🍩 Paired with a dreamy creamy blue latte from the team at @knowrishwell, sounds like a pretty good start to the day to me 😎
I’ve always struggled with iron, long before I became vegan, so I’m really trying to do all the right things at the moment to get it up 👆🏼 Taking my iron twice a day, eating lots of green leafy veg, beetroot, vitamin C ect. Recently I’ve decided to stop drinking tea for a while as I’ve read the tannins in tea are bad for iron absorption 🙅🏼♀️ and see if that helps. I’ve found replacing my caffeinated tea with a superfood latte like this one in the mornings has been doing wonders, how great is it to have so many options now days? Feeling so grateful 🙏🏿 So how about you guys, do you have the same iron problems? Do you have any handy tips about what you do to get more iron?
ALCOHOL🍾 & GAINS 💪? There are three essential macronutrients: proteins, carbs and fats🥑. They are essential as they are vital for the growth, maintenance and development of the body. Alcohol is also a macronutrient, but it is considered a non-essential nutrient, as it provides no nutritional benefits. One gram of alcohol contains 7 calories, so if you want to consume alcohol and you are tracking macros - make sure to account for this😊
Alcohol hurts the absorption of protein (and any other substance). When you consume alcohol, your nutrient regulation – what you consume and how your body uses it for energy – is put on hold as your body’s main priority is now to process the alcohol👌 This is why I would recommend you to workout early in the day if you decide to drink alcohol that evening/night so that your body has the whole day to refuel your muscles after your training👊
When you decide that you want to drink alcohol, make sure to plan ahead by looking at your daily macro targets and find areas where you can exchange some calories (carbs and fats for alcohol) so that you will keep your game up while enjoying life!🍻💪 @gainsbybrains
How to cut while maintaining your muscles and strength?🤔👇🏼
First of all, what is cutting? It is when you want to lose the fat you accumulated during your bulk, so you do a caloric deficit during a certain period of time. A bulk on the other hand is when you increase your caloric intake to a surplus which is basically the opposite💪🏽
To not lose the muscles you have built during your bulk it is important that you are not laying too low on your caloric deficit. A caloric deficit between 250-500 calories should be the ideal to not lose your muscles🥗
Personally I have never been a numbers girl and I prefer to enjoy my food instead of associate it with numbers🤓 What I do to be on a deficit is to change up my workouts and eat the same as before. I will still be laying on a deficit because I burn more than I eat🏃🏼♀️
To maintain strength you should keep your reps low once in a while🔑 The reason why is because when you get lower than 5 reps it's called maximal strength and is the most effective way to build strength🏋🏽♀️ 6-8 reps is a mixture of maximal strength and hyperthrophy (building muscles), so this rep range would be to prefere if you want to maintain your strength durig a cut✔️@norwegiansunny
They like Sardines!!! My girls are molting, which means we are not getting as many eggs these days and the yard looks like a feather pillow exploded! 😂They are hunting like crazy for lizards and bugs but it seems they are not getting enough protein to grow new feathers and lay eggs this molting season. So I read sardines are a great healthy treat to encourage growth and egg production. You know you love your chickens when you share your wild caught sardine stash! I went as far as lifting bricks and flower pots so they could forage for worms and bugs underneath! #backyardchickens#featheredfriends#sardines#protein#goodfats#cleaneating minus the bugs #lol#livinghealthy#florida
Grilled veggie sammies, an Asian salad and tomato soup for lunch the other day 😋 When you get your non vegan friend to have a plant based meal 💯 Vegan done right! We actually do eat more than just grass 😜
