When I wanna have something sweet!!
Since I've been caring about vitamin intake, my perfect answer is to have 1 serving fruit for snack. When I'm out, it's easy to find juice stands while there are few options for sweet snack that I can take. So my recent fav is fruit smoothie 😊
Whenever I have to eat out, I always try to opt for sushi because for me it's the safest option to avoid hidden FODMAPs.
But dining at Kisumé was a league of its own! We had a seat at the sushi bar and went with a set sushi menu. I told the chef I was intolerant to onion and garlic and they were so accommodating and could easily substitute flavours.
Would highly recommend for all you fodmappers dining out for a special occasion, or simply just wanting to treat yourself without the anxiety of getting sick!
P.S the dessert I had in the last photo definitely wasn't FODMAP friendly, but it was so delicious I could resist. It was a pineapple and coconut pana cotta and it tasted like a pina colada on steroids 😂 #worthit
🤓 These are my average weekly macros (top) and calories (bottom) since my competition. The vertical line shows when I started #rpstrength . My BW was about 117/118 before my water cut. You can see that I increased my calories after the competition. In response, my body weight went up to about 121 before RP (I didn’t weight myself regularly during this period). While my total calories leveled off closer to maintenance (2100-2200) after starting RP, my macro ratios changed significantly and my body weight increased by two pounds. The old me would say, “see?! Carbs make you fat!” The new me says, “carbs make ME perform better in the gym and potentially make ME hold more water.” On my RP Cut 1 I’m eating closer to the calories I was eating up to my last meet (about 1900-2000), but the macro ratios are totally different. It will be interesting to see how my performance is affected.
Following a low fodmap diet can mean by-bye to lots of fruits. But strawberries are totally fodmap friendly + high in so many important vitamins and minerals found in lots of fruits such as Vitamin C, Manganese, Folate and Potassium as well as being a great source of fibre. These berries have a list of health benefits including regulating blood sugars, boosting heart health, and boosting immune systems. Try having with overnight oats for breakfast, with yoghurt or cacao dipping sauce (on the website!) for dessert or just on their own for a snack!
Feeling stronger each day again 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼. I've had serious stomach and bowel problems for the last seven months now. I felt tired, had stumoch and abdominal pains, hunger pains, felt nauseous, had change in stool, serious bloating, belching and felt just completely unfit and more down. Our power ✨really does house in our bellies.
Two weeks ago I was offered a diet. And I was totally sceptical about it. I thought IBS was a purely psychosomatic disorder and not so much a food intolerance matter. I noticed yoga & meditation did relieve the pain, but the pains just kept coming back and getting worse.
But omg! This FODMAP diet really works. It's a serious elimination diet and not so easy while traveling (or generally), but I don't care as long as I feel me again.
So if you are struggling with any of these complaints too, it's well worth a try. I'm happy I have a doctor who truly listened to me and didn't just prescribe all sorts of medications to silence the pain. All tests came out clear, which I'm especially grateful for considering my family's medical history. So food matters..... we just need to find out what works for us personally...... Wishing you a beautiful weekend! And hope to see you on Sunday in class😘🙏🏼🌈.

First real meal of my (terrible and extremely specific) low FODMAP diet that will hopefully make my stomach not feel like it’s full of lead. It’s complicated and I now have to be that jerk asking for gluten free/ low dairy options at restaurants, but hopefully it’ll be worth it! FINGERS CROSSED. 🤞🏼🥩🍅🍃 #lowfodmap#lowfodmapdiet#meatchunks#spinach#parmesancheese#imissgarlic
I’ve got my next meet on the calendar- Colorado State Championships, Feb 10! I am certain this meet will go much more smoothly than my first- 1) I will actually know what to expect (fewer nerves); 2) I am significantly more confident on all my lifts (and am stronger); and 3) I plan to get my weight under control earlier in the process to make the cut less stressful. On the third point- I have followed my #rpstrength base template for 5 weeks. My scale weight has gone up 2 pounds (123) 😬 I AM eating more than twice the carbs than before (180 now versus 75 then), so I suppose I might be holding more water than before- I’ll play it safe, though, and assume it’s “real” weight 😂 In any case, I’ll start Cut 1 this week, and will proceed to Cuts 2 and 3 until I reach a more manageable weight (117). I’m highly motivated to compete in the 52s, so I am hopeful that my body cooperates. Wish me luck 👊🏻#teamchaffey
Comfort food 🤗 idk about you guys, but every fall/winter I lack motivation to get in the gym at 6 am, don't feel like doing anything after work since the sun goes down at 5 and the only thing that sounds appealing is a blanket, Netflix, and this right hurr. Homemade tomato basil soup with @barelybread sourdough toast and @kitehillfoods chive cream cheese for dunking 🤤 added @thenewbarn unsweetened almond milk to make it creamier. Their almond milk is so thiq 👏🏼 and has no added crap. -
But in all seriousness, if anyone has some tips and tricks to get re-motivated to wake up early and exercise send em my way!!
