Water is arguably the most under appreciated tool we have at our disposal for health and performance! Here’s a cool graphic to help figure out if you need to hydrate! Swipe right for The Water Intake Chart 💦 - Just like how water makes up most of the earth 🌎 (71% of it), it also makes up most of us! That’s a whopping 55-75% of our bodies! That’s pretty crazy to think about and when you gain this perspective of how much of our body is made up of water, you can really understand what the smallest amount of dehydration can do to our systems. - It’s essential for not only life but also 1️⃣ Cellular homeostasis 2️⃣ All metabolic processes 3️⃣ Digestion 4️⃣ Body Temperature Regulation 5️⃣ Central Nervous System Function ✳️ And the list goes on and on and on! - And in regards to performance 🏋️♂️, at only 2% dehydration, your performance can drop 10%….. And if you get to 5% dehydration, it drops all the way down to 30%! That’s crazy….. And on top of all that, dehydration can also play a huge role in hunger regulation 🤤. Most times when we are hungry, it is not because we are truly hungry…. It is because we are dehydrated! So how much water should you be consuming? 🤷🏻♂️ - 👨🏻💻 Sedentary = At Least 8 Cups per Day - 💪🏻 Active = At Least 12 Cups per Day - 💪🏻🕺🏻Very Active = At Least 16 Cups per Day - ✅ My goal water intake is between 14-16 cups per day. That’s around 6 full 20oz shaker bottles full of water. - 🤷🏻♂️ So how do I implement this into my day? I’m proactive with my water intake! - 1️⃣ First thing in the morning before any food, I chug 3 cups of water because I have been sleeping and are more than likely dehydrated from the lack of water throughout the night. - 2️⃣ I have checks and balances throughout the day where I chug water. - 3️⃣ I tend to front load my water intake with most coming earlier in the day and start to taper as I get closer to bed so I’m not peeing my pants while I’m trying to sleep 😭 - 4️⃣ I ALWAYS drink at least 20oz of water 30 minutes before each meal to help with hunger regulation and digestion - ✳️ For those of you Dieting: Drink your water! It’s going to help sooo damn much with your hunger and energy levels!
Am I going to bulk this winter? To be real, I’m not that lean to begin with and have been eating good so I’ve already been making some gains! I’m feeling like a tank right now and I love it! Morning weight is between 172-175lbs. I honestly just want to stay right around here. I think I can still make some great progress right in this body fat percentage. Still not tracking macros. Don’t really feel the need at all. Not going to force feed growth with more calories. Just listening to my body and my performance! BUT Do I recommend most of you to go through a life changing bulk like I did last year? ABSOLUTELY! Soo damn grateful for that damn bulk! It was uncomfortable as hell but wow was it worth it. Learned soo much about myself along that whole process. If you followed along, you saw how difficult it was for me. I wish I could’ve just been there cheering myself on in that moment reassuring myself what was to come from it. That’s what I want to be for you guys. If you are thinking about doing it, do it please.

Can sub 3g Knox Gelatin Powder - ❇️ Directions: 1️⃣ Take your fresh berry of your choice and food process them in your small food processor into small pieces. You can do the same with a knife but it’ll take a bit longer. and add them to a small stove top pot along with 56ml (¼ cup) of water along with your stevia and and vanilla extract. Put on medium heat with cover and cook until it starts to boil and want to overflow. Take cover off and turn burner on low and let simmer for 20 minutes. 2️⃣ While your that pot in boiling, take a small dish and add your lemon juice to it. Then sprinkle your jello mix or gelatin evenly across the top of the lemon juice and let it sit. Don’t just clump it on there. It will create a huge clump and not work well when you want to add it to your jelly later on. 3️⃣ Once 20 minutes simmer is done, break up the gelatin and lemon juice mixture and add to your stove top pot. Mix those in and turn the burner off. Let the pot cool some more. I did for another 20 minutes. Then take jelly out and add to an 8oz mason jar and add to the fridge to let set. Trust me, it might seem like it is too liquidy before you add it to the fridge, but I promise it will thicken up. 4️⃣ I advise making this the night before you want to use it and letting it sit in the fridge overnight. Wake up and it is perfect for the next day! Enjoy! Remember smash that like button for more swipe recipe videos in the future! Love you guys!
Just a friendly reminder if you watched “The Game Changers” Documentary Eggs are your Friend 🥚🙂 • In fact, The Documentary used the term “Plant Based” a ton while pushing a vegan diet but most of the studies cited were using a vegetarian diet including eggs and some dairy! - So here are some amazing facts about Eggs and why it’s ok to be including them into your diet! - 🍳 The egg yolk is packed with most of the beautiful vitamins and minerals that eggs provide! It also provides an amazing source of saturated fat (which is actually our friend! Research has and is still showing that our food cholesterol has little if not any effect on your blood cholesterol levels. Still need more research on this.) Having @drnadolsky on the podcast soon talking all about cholesterol which I’m super pumped about! And the Egg Whites are where most of the protein is! Not many micros are found there. But is a lean source of protein that provides you with less calories because it does not have the dietary fat content from the yolks. So what’s my advice for how to consume your eggs? Have 2 Whole Eggs so you get the vitamins and minerals. Then add in another 100g of egg whites to bang out another 20g protein just from the egg whites! That’ll put you at 218 Calories, 10g Fat and 32g Protein! - ✅ So my point is…. Calories matter! Micronutrients matter! Why not take into account both and make the most of this heavenly food we call eggs! Feel free to tag a friend who loves eggs and needs to smile knowing that they can still have eggs no matter what that fear mongering/misleading documentary told them!

So after my post yesterday as well as going on my story talking about some of the disrespect and nastiness that a lot of vegans sent my way, I received a ton of DMs reassuring me that this is a “Loud Few” that I am dealing with. And I went back and forth with these “super nice vegans” having great conversations and my mind kept trying to figure out what this reminded me of. I thought more and more. And then it hit me! It was “Becky” The name “Becky” was the name we gave to those in our group of friends when they had too much to drink. We had a few of them that it happened to all the time. Once they had too much to drink, there name was now “Becky” lol. And what these DMs reminded me of were the conversations we’d have to have with people explaining that “Becky” had had too much to drink and to please excuse her behavior. Please please please take this as nothing other than a joke. Not trying to be mean whatsoever lol I was just trying to find the best way possible to describe what was going on in my head yesterday! Those who truly follow me and really see the content I put out on here, the podcast, and the youtube channel know I have nothing against the vegan diet. I have nothing against any diet. The only thing I am against is telling someone that your way is the only way. That’s not cool. And what’s worse is using fear mongering tactics to push your way onto someone else. To pry on emotion and purposely use BS to push your agenda on someone who doesn’t have the education necessary to see the BS. That’s crap. All I want to do with my content is give you guys the tools necessary to spot BS. Love you guys and have an amazing rest of your Wednesday 🙂
Just keeping it real 🤷🏻♂️ Tag a friend who needs to see this! So what is there to make of this Documentary? Let’s start with what they did right. It was really entertaining, funny and flowed really well. The cinematography and film making was amazing. They used characters, storylines and anecdotes to create an emotional/relatable connection to the characters. They also used great athletes to help create that social proof aspect. They used a shock and awe factor at perfect times to keep the audience captivated in order to push out their agenda. But Let’s go onto what I didn’t like. This documentary will likely impact hundreds of thousands of people because of all the things they did right I mentioned above. But they did everything else wrong. It’s as if they just pulled studies out of a hat when citing their claims. One correlational assumption after another. One anecdote after another asking professional athletes about their experience on the vegan diet and how they “feel” it’s helped them perform better than they ever have. And the problem is, Your “feelings” don’t give you an accurate description of your health/performance. People feel fine and then get hit by a Stage IV Cancer Diagnosis. That’s the point here. “Feeling’s” or “Personal Experience” are anecdotes and can’t be the gauge of if something is true or not. That’s not scientific evidence. So this film is a great example of how storytelling is a powerful powerful thing. They know most people will not have the knowledge nor time to go analyze their citations. Nor have the prerequisite knowledge necessary to understand what the studies are truly saying. So what are my takeaways from this documentary? 1️⃣ I do think we should be eating mostly a plant based diet. 2️⃣ I think we should be using meats as mostly a protein source because of the high quality amount of leucine that is found in meat. 3️⃣ I think we need to be consuming less animal fat. We still don’t know in what amounts saturated fat are good or bad for us. We’re still trying to figure out how dietary lipids affect blood lipids and risk of CVD 4️⃣ Be wary of the plant based hyper processed foods you will find everywhere now.

Them Monday Morning Feels 😎☕️ Tag your coffee partner in crime! So last night, I was not able to get my normal 7-8 hours of sleep. But no matter what, I need to be productive and get a lot done today. So this is where caffeine as a tool comes into play. I am hyper aware of my caffeine every day and use it only as a tool. Most days my caffeine is around 150-200mg. Why? Not because caffeine is inherently bad. But because it’s a tool that will loose effectiveness over time if abused. So by keeping caffeine lower on days that I don’t need it, I can have a day like this when I need to use 500mg to crush it! It’s kinda like dieting. You want to diet on as many calories as possible. If you hit a plateau you need to have calories to pull from. If you jumped the gun and went too low and aggressive at the start, you’d have nothing left to pull from. - Just like caffeine. If I abused it every single day when I didn’t need it, on days like this, it wouldn’t be as effective of a tool as I’d need it to be. I could go on for days talking about this but please let me know in the comments below if you’d want to learn about how I am able to keep energy high without caffeine. I have a full Arsenal 🙂🙌 - Now go crush today my friends! 😎

Sooooo are you a Starbucks Coffee Drinker? If not, where do you love to get your coffee from? Anywho, here’s a How Much Caffeine is in your Starbucks Coffee Guide! Tag your homie who needs to know how much caffeine is in their Starbucks coffee! One thing to note here is that Starbucks Coffee is known for a higher than normal caffeine content for their coffee so just keep that in mind when comparing it to your coffee your get instead of Starbucks. And please please remember. Caffeine is a tool. The more you use that tool, the more dull it will become. If you need to use more than 200-300mg of caffeine each day to get through your day, I highly recommend reevaluating other aspects of your life that provide energy. That means sleep, hydration, calories, micronutrients, etc.
Give this recipe a save and Tag your homie who needs to save this less than 300 cal recipe! Spaghetti Squash & Meatballs Recipe below! - ✅ Macros for the Whole Plate: 294 Cals, 33g Carbs, 6g Fat, 27g Protein! - ✳️ Ingredients to make Spaghetti Squash (makes 3 servings): 1 Whole Spaghetti Squash Water to fill pan Sea Salt + Garlic Powder to season Squash - ✳️ Toppings (Makes 3 Plates) 500g of Cooked Spaghetti Squash 300g Pasta Sauce 12oz 96/4 Lean Ground Beef Sea Salt + Garlic Powder 30g Fat Free Feta - ❇️ Directions: 1️⃣ Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Now microwave your spaghetti squash for 2 minutes. Then flip over once 2 minutes is over and then microwave for another 2 minutes. The microwaves makes it easier for you to cut your spaghetti squash for baking. 2️⃣ Now take your spaghetti squash and cut off each end aka the top and the bottom. Please be careful doing this! Take your time! Then slice your spaghetti squash in half long ways. 3️⃣ Next, take a big spoon and scoop out all the seeds in the middle of the spaghetti squash. 4️⃣ Now take an oven safe pan with edges because you will be filling it with a small layer of water and you don’t want it spilling out. You also want it big enough to hold both halves of the spaghetti squash face down. Fill the bottom of the pan with about 1 inch of water. Then evenly sprinkle sea salt and garlic powder into the water. 5️⃣ Lay your spaghetti squash halves facedown and add to oven for 25 minutes. 6️⃣ While your spaghetti squash is baking, you can make up your meatballs by add your 12oz of ground beef to a bowl. Season with your sea salt and garlic powder. Then form into 0.75-1oz meatballs. I did 0.75oz ones. Then add to stove top pan on 6/10 heat. Add cover on top to help the cook evenly. Flip the meatballs every couple minutes till they get that golden look on each side of the meatballs. 7️⃣ Once all is ready, take your spaghetti squash out and let cool for 5-10 minutes. Then take a fork and run it through the spaghetti squash. This should turn them into spaghetti. Now take out as much as you want to put on your plate, add your sauce (preheat in stovetop pot), meatballs and then feta cheese. Enjoy!

Ok so this is kind of a deep introspective caption so if you just want to smile at a fun meme showing that we self sabotage ourselves in all aspect of life especially our nutrition. Then just stop here and tag your friend who needs to see this. But if you want to dive deeper, keep reading. Story time. I was having a conversation the other day with my buddy who is currently in a great relationship. He loves her soo much. He knows she loves him soo much. Everything sounds great right? But both of them have no so great of a past with relationships. They’ve both been in love. They’ve both gotten their hopes up. They thought this person was their person. And they both got their hearts broken. Our primitive brain tends to think in extremes. We envision the worst case scenario. We embody what it will feel like as if it were real. And the more we think about it, the more our actions tend to reflect it actually happening. We act different around the person we love. We see warning signs that are not actually there. And we eventually create problems that never should’ve been there if it wasn’t for these unwarranted thoughts. And eventually we are right even though we didn’t want to be. We pushed that person away that we loved and we got what we envisioned. This is the same thing we do with our nutrition. Most of us have trust issues with diets. We’ve tried many different diets to be left feeling used and abused not knowing what to do. Because frankly, 99% of diets suck. But most of us have that breakthrough. We find that one diet that feels easy. It fits like a glove. It feels too good to be true. So we start to question whether this is too good to be true. We forget all the good and only think of all the potential bad that’s not even there yet. And what happens? Just like in the story above, we self sabotage ourselves. We fall off track for no reason. The diet that finally felt easy. That fit like a glove. That was getting you the results you wanted. Self Sabotaged.

Are you team No Thigh Gap!? - Honestly didn’t realize how much my Adductors had grown as much as they have over the past year! Growing my adductors not only is a big part of having visibly bigger legs but also is HUGE is the stability component of soo many lower body movements. It is a must for me to get my adductors firing before I do any squatting. So that could look like doing the seated abduction machine for a few sets or doing lying adductor squeezes onto a medball. Will be covering this more in future content on the page and also on the YouTube channel! Also, I want to give a huge thanks to the homie @bretcontreras1 for crushing a workout with me at the @glutelabofficial! We filmed the whole workout for the YouTube Channel and it’ll be up next Sunday! Love you guys and have a dope Sunday!
