Whew! I did a brutal @fitnessblender upper body routine this morning and my arms are still shaking! 🏋🏼♀️ I got a little messy with the molasses drizzle and could barely hold up my camera for this photo 😅 But that's a sign of a good workout! This is my #postworkout breakfast smoothie bowl complete with @amazinggrass protein + frozen spinach and 🍌 + almond milk + almond butter + flax + blueberries + homemade granola! Happy Thursday all!
@bosubodybar always provides the goods for a good clean protein-filled lunch 🐠💪🏼 here we've got a box filled with veggie goodness, sweet potato mash and a fillet of grilled sea bass 👌🏼

Its no secret that I do count my calories and macros and I have made some pretty drastic changes over the past year. It's not been as simple as going to the gym but it's included me training and counting calories AND macros! Females are very different to males - end of. I hear so many people tell me if I train 'right' I should be able to eat what I want when I want. Unfortunately this doesn't work for me 🙅 and I know many girls who are in the same boat as me. I wish it was the case but it isn't. I know from looking at the picture of the left I am carrying excess water weight. Water weight can be lost easily when carbs are cut down as they cause water retention. Women as a whole naturally carry more water due to hormones and our physiology. Therefore, it makes sense that women should track their carb and sugar intake more closely that males due to our natural ability to hold excess water and therefore water weight. Obviously here there is a different in tone and definition which of course has come from training, however it's important to remember that if carrying excess water weight, tone and definition Is much harder to see. What I'm starting to find is that there are many opinions within health and fitness and none are right or wrong. It's simply what works for you. Counting my macros and calories clearly works for me so that's what I'm going for 👊 #waterweight#watery#carbs#lowcarbs#diet#macros#calories#nutrition#eatclean#traindirty#offseason#leanmuscle#female#diet#lowfat#highprotein#protein#physique#bikini#bikinifitness#bodybuilding#bodyconfidence#bodypositivity
Inspired by pajeon and okonomiyaki, I made a #glutenfree#grainfree#starchfree hybrid with roasted eggplants and green beans. Nom! 😋
Somehow, this tastes like it has little shrimps. So odd. Very reminiscent of the tortas my grandmother used to make for me. I ate this with steamed amaranth (budbud kabog) and a soy sesame vinegar chili dipping sauce 💚🍃🍽
I changed my name 😱! No not my actual human name, my insta name 💁🏼! Which let's face it, is far more relevant in this social media driven world 🌎! So why this new identity 🕵🏼♀️? As a Nutrionist in the making (@mnucert) with a passion for evidence-based nutrition, I want to use this account as a platform to share my knowledge and to 'do my bit' in providing some clarity amongst the confusing, contradictory and often irresponsible nutritional 'advice' that we are bombarded with.
As cheesy as this sounds 🧀, I believe that everyone deserves to have the ability to feel their best, look their best and perform at their best, and nutrition plays an important role in all of these things 🍓. I want to show people that our approach to nutrition should be highly individualised, and that no matter what our goal may be, as long as we adhere to a few simple underlying principles ☝🏼, the method we choose is really just down to personal preference.
So with that said; if anyone has any questions or topic suggestions, please feel free to contact me as I would love to help 🙃! DISCLAIMER: I will not be held responsible for any CrossFit related posts that *may* still happen to filter through....👀🏋🏼♀️🤸🏼♀️
