🤤 How to Track @chickfila Before I begin, what do you get from Chick Fil A!? • If you don’t eat at Chick Fil A, what is your favorite Fast Food Restaurant!? So here’s what I ordered from Chick Fil A - “A Number 5 aka a Grilled Chicken Sandwich. Add Pickles because pickles from Chick Fil A are BOMB!” - I paid for my order and then told her that “I’ll be back in a bit for a Small Ice Cream Cone!” - The cool part about all fast food restaurants is that they have dynamic nutritional information on their websites for not only the meals but also the individual ingredients. The Nutritional Information Online for the Sandwich online is and also the verified (blue check) entry in @MyFitnessPal is 310 Cals, 36g Carbs, 6g Fat, 29g Protein. I ended up adding yellow mustard and hot sauce to my sandwich which are both low calorie (virtually zero cal) sauces instead of the 5-6g fat and 3-5g Carbs that comes with most packets (not the square boxes) of sauces from there. I only got the sandwich and didn’t get a side of fries because I wanted to have a Small Vanilla IceDream Cone. - 🍟 A side of Medium Fries from Chick Fil A is 360 Cals, 43g Carbs, 18g Fat, 5g Protein. - 🍦 The Small Vanilla IceDream Cone is 170 Cals, 30g Carbs, 3.5g Fat, 4g Protein. So I ended up saving some macros by going with this and also get the dessert I wanted. Moral of the story is, eating out is getting more and more easy. Use the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) Principle when ordering. Limit the sauces/dressing. Let’s create perspective: - ❌ One Sauce Container of the Chick Fil A Sauce is: 140 Calories, 13g Fat, 6g Carbs, 0g Protein - ❌ The Creamy Salsa Dressing: 290 Cals, 31g Fat (holy shizz), 2g Cabs, 1g Protein So keep it simple! Hot sauces and yellow mustard are a great choice always. Or just plain salsa if you have access. Cheese will add more fat than protein (about 70 Cals per slice) Fries are as much a fat source than they are a carb source. Small Vanilla Ice Cream Cones are ALWAYS a great choice! (@McDonalds Ice Cream Cones still have my heart ❤️) - If this post helped, please show me some love in the comments and tag a restaurant where you want me to one of these next!
The Weekend is Here! 😎 • 1️⃣ Meal Prep Having meals ready to go with ensure you are in a position to succeed. Having meals ready will ensure you are on track so then you can fit in the more extravagant meals during the weekend - 2️⃣ Get a Workout In I don’t want you to think of working out as absolutely crushing yourself in the gym to burn a ton of calories so you can eat whatever you want. The amount of calories you burn (you think 900) working out is a lot less than you think (In reality 400). But a workout will help with burning some calories and is always a good move because of the physiological response. - 3️⃣ Prioritize Sleep Sleep is a huge regulator of your hormones that regulate sleep AKA get less sleep, you will be a lot more hungry. Pair that with less sleep making you less motivated as well. Not a good recipe for success. - 4️⃣ Have Pre Planned Treats Planning these treats will give you the ability to fit your nutrition around these treats. Just plug them into @myfitnesspal and work your macros around them. - 5️⃣ Stay Active Outside The Gym Pairing activity with fun is a great way to enjoy the best of both worlds! This could be going for a hike, walking around town in your area, and honestly, just parking in the back of the parking lot of the grocery store! - 6️⃣ Drink Lots of Water Just like sleep, water is a great regulator of your hunger. A lot of times, we can confuse hunger for dehydration. So making sure you are drinking at least 0.75ml of your body weight in water per day is a great rule of thumb. And because most times, alcohol is going to be present during the weekend, staying hydrated around those drinks is soo important too. - ✳️ Any other tips/strategies you guys use on the weekends to stay on track!?
Soo damn Grateful for these 2 Human Beings • @evanchildsfitness has been a friend for many years now and has always been there for me. We talk all the time about how we can help each other grow in all aspects of our lives and it’s always soo damn cool to hang out with • @nicksantonastasso is someone I met for the first time today but is someone I can see being a good friend for many many years to come. His perspective on the circumstances he’s been dealt is insane. Perspective is everything Moral of the story is You are the people you surround yourself with the most. Take an audit on who you have in your life. Are they helping you become your best self? Be selfish with your inner circle You deserve it. Please go follow both of them 🙏 - Anyone or thing you are most grateful for right now!? • 📸 @sabermedia

Our bodies are beautiful machines just trying to survive no matter what we throw at them. So when we are trying to lose weight, you are eating less than what you are burning thus causing weight loss. The more weight we lose, the more our bodies tend to recognize - “hey, what the heck is going on here!? I don’t like all this weight we are losing. There must be some kind of shortage of food. Let’s be more efficient with the calories we have so we don’t run the risk of running out!” - 🦷Enter the Toothpaste Analogy When we first open the tube, we are reckless with it. Like a savage, adding globs on our toothbrush And most times wasting a lot down the sink But as we get closer to the end of the tube, we find ourselves only using the amount we really need. We become super efficient with the toothpaste we have. And a week or two go by and you are still squeaking more and more out of that tube of toothpaste! That’s what our bodies are doing as we lose more and more weight. It is becoming much more efficient with the calories it is given because it recognizes that they are not coming in as much as they used to. Whether you like it or not, your body is going to lower your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) - ✳️ Your TDEE is made up of: 1️⃣ Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) = Calories Burned just to exist 2️⃣ Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT) = Lifestyle Calories aka walking, fidgeting, etc. 3️⃣Thermic Effect of Food (TEF) = Calories you burn from the digesting/processing of food you eat. 4️⃣Exercise Activity (EA) = Calories burned through exercise/training Moral of the story is, you are a tube of toothpaste 🤷🏻♂️ - Sooo let me get an update on how things are going with you guys! How is your cut going? Starting point and where you are now!? What are some wins and/or learning experiences you’ve had along the way!? Any struggles that you are having thus far that I can help with? Crush this week my friends 😎

Habits can be dope! But They can also be not-so-dope. Habits are great because they require little thinking. They just happen. So if you have good habits, you are going to be in a great position to succeed. But If your habits are not supporting you and your goals…. I mean I think you can figure out that it’s not a good thing So You want to lose fat? Here are 6 Habit that might be hindering you reaching you fat loss goals! And as you are reading these, I want you to think of which one you are struggling with the most and/or the one you changed that gave you the most benefit! Let me know in the comments! 1️⃣ Boredom Those days where you are super busy and before you know it, you have barely eaten and it’s 5pm! When you are “in the zone aka Flow”, Hunger has been shown to decrease dramatically because your body recognizes that you are super focused and can’t break that focus with food. 2️⃣ No Caloric or Macro Goal Just like if you are having trouble with managing your money spending, having caloric/macro goals will give you the data necessary to expedite the process of you losing fat. 3️⃣ Eating Out Too Often Eating out can be tricky. It most definitely can be done often and still lose body fat. But since you are not preparing the meals, you do not control all the variables. Thus you are more than likely eating more calories than you think. 4️⃣ Not Measuring Out Your Food You are eating wayyy more calories than you think. I can guarantee that. The food scale doesn’t lie. Measuring cups and/or your eyeballs do. 5️⃣ Lack Of Sleep Sleep is a GAME CHANGER! Get 7-8 hours of sleep, your hunger will be blunted, your energy will be much higher, your NEAT will increase, your digestion will improve, and soo much more. 6️⃣ Regular Eating Schedule This one has been a game changer for me during my cut. I’ve honestly tracked my macros once a week (when I film my FDOEs for YouTube) and the rest are eating intuitively. Eating at the same times gives you a template to go by. Checks and balances to help keeps cals and hunger in check. For me it’s 11:30am, 3pm, 7pm, 9pm for my meals.

Add to stove top and preheat on 7/10 heat till at a boil. Once boiling, turn down to low heat and add your macaroni in for 6-8 minutes till softened. Mix every minute or so to ensure it doesn’t stick the bottom. 2️⃣ While you macaroni is cooking, you will want to add your frozen broccoli and brussel sprouts to a pan and cook on high heat with a cover on top till softened. Then add sea salt to veggies and mix. Turn heat down to 5/10 and continue to mix around until veggies are getting some char marks on them. 3️⃣ Now move veggies on that pan to the side to clean space for you to add your bacon. While bacon is cooking, take scissors and cut up your chicken breast into little nuggets. Season with 4g garlic powder and 4g sea salt. Then add to pan with your veggies and bacon. Cook until golden. 4️⃣ Once macaroni is ready to go, drain in colander and then add back to the pot. Turn heat up on stove top to 3/10 and add in your queso, cheese slices and mozzarella.
