Describe what a normal day of eating is for you.
A normal day of eating for me involves lots of whole foods. I eat a Paleo-esque diet, but I’m not super strict about it and allow for splurges every now and then. For breakfast, I usually eat a two-ingredient pancake with almond or sunflower butter. Lunch is a salad with chicken or Curry Tuna Cakes or Spaghetti Squash Pancakes. Dinner is usually meat and veggies. Some of my favorite dinner recipes are Gingery Broccoli and Beef and Dry Rub Steak with Avocado Salsa. Sweet Potato Wedges are also a weekly staple in my lunches and dinners. For snacks, I like sliced banana with nut butter and protein shakes made with coconut milk and vanilla-flavored egg protein.
Tell us a little about your weight loss journey. What was the most difficult part, and how did you overcome it?
I’ve written about my weight loss story on my site. The most difficult part was getting started, but, once I had a plan, it made it so much easier to stick to my new healthy habits.
What form of exercise do you recommend most to people just getting started?
CrossFit! A lot of people might be surprised to hear this, but CrossFit is scale-able to any skill level and there’s a modification for every exercise, so it’s a great way to get in shape and lose weight (quickly) even for beginners.
What’s your favorite song to work out to?
Anything by David Guetta.
