One week post show, up 2 pounds. I enjoyed myself Saturday night and ate untracked meals Sunday for breakfast lunch and dinner along with treats Right back on meals and training Monday!
Still correcting the post show treats ♀️so that will take a little longer to even itself out but #enjoyedeverybite ••Let’s talk reverse dieting
When I competed back in 2016, against my coaches persistent attempt to educate me on reverse dieting, I did not listen ♀️ It was my first show and once I started eating the post show treats, I couldn’t stop...it spilled into the following week, and the next weekend, and weeks after and before I knew it I was up almost 30 pounds in 1 month
•It took me a LONG time to find a healthy relationship with food again and when I went into this prep I knew I wasn’t going to let that happen again and really take the reverse seriously
•It really needs to be a mindset shift and how you view food. The food will always be there, and it’s really about making good choices with food to help stay on track with your current goals. Those first few weeks after a show are crucial.. your metabolism is in the toilet so if you just start binging with food, your body is going to retain everything and store it as fat ♀️ My advice, make sure you have a plan in place to correctly reverse out and remember, it’s about finding a balance after you’ve been on such a strict regimen #reversedieting #postshow
