PRO TIP FOR BULKING: Heres a little something that's helped me get more calories in. For pasta go with Fettuccine, its T H I C C instead of skinny little strands like in spaghetti.
This means it looks like less on your plate, and you can scoop up a couple servings of it and finish it quickly. Compared to 200 grams of spaghetti, which feels like it takes forever to eat.
Also I'm about to trip yall out BUT if you look at the second pic, you'll notice a little line by my thumb. I was born with 6 fingers on each hand, that line is stitches from when I had the 6th finger removed.
Total here would be
Protein: 50 Grams
Fat: 4 Grams
Carbs: 108 Grams
"I've only lost a lb in the past week/two weeks/month.."
Let's get this straight: losing one lb of fat is a big fucking deal. One pound of fat removed from your body makes a REAL difference to how efficiently your body moves, feels, and responds to activity, to say nothing of your heart disease and diabetes risk. It's a victory.
Know that anything at or above 2lbs/week in weight loss is considered extreme weight loss. The diet culture has tried to trick us that 2lbs+ loss a week is some kind of norm with snake oil tricks that starve water off your body to take advantage of your frantic desire to lose weight quickly. It's bullshit
Recalibrate your thinking: Losing one pound is HUGE. It's an achievement. It's a huge stride forward in your health and fitness. It's hard work.
Who's lost a pound so far this year? Who's lost a FEW? Fuck yeah, guys! CELEBRATE. It's a hard-won step in a positive direction. Don't let anyone tell you any different.

• • • Loaded fruit & yoghurt bowl• • •☀️ I absolutely LOVE fruit.. it’s amazing! 🍇🍑🍓🍏☀️• • • What I don’t love is that people used to tell me that I shouldn’t eat fruit because it’s high carb, full of fructose and fructose sugar is harmful.... And that I used to listen (though that lasted a hot minute 🤤😂) Firstly fructose is only harmful in large amounts and it’s almost impossible to overeat fructose just from fruit. So if you’re craving a bowl of fruit because you’ve been restricting natural sugar.. (or eating chicken and rice for months) I say bloody do it. Enjoy nature’s fast food 😋
Here’s a few other things I have to say about fruit 😊
✨ Fruit = Fiber. Which keeps your digestive system happy. ✨Fruit contains loads of vitamins and minerals that help you feel healthy and energised. ✨Fruit is an easy and convenient snack. ✨There’s so much variety so you never have to get bored of eating the same thing. ✨You can choose fruits that are higher in a certain vitamins and switch them up to reap the different benefits.
Can’t go wrong. Life’s too short to avoid one of mother nature’s wonders 😍

VOLUME EATING HACK - AVOCADO🥑
Are you a smashed avo on toast lover 🥑🍞? ⠀
It is definitely pretty easy to go overboard with avocado especially because they are so delicious!
Even though avos are super healthy since they are loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats, fibre, vitamin C and folate (just to name a few), a serving size is still only ~30-50g.
My trick is to mix avocado with either green peas, edamame or ricotta/cottage cheese (regular or reduced fat), it helps reduce the calorie load without reducing the volume! I like large portions 🤷🏻♀️ and often enjoy adding it to salads so this trick really helps keep my portion size in check!
Really, it’s a perfectly balanced mix of healthy fat, protein and fibre that will keep you feeling full and satisfied! Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner or maybe even a snack!
This trick also helps me out because I follow a modified FODMAP diet and struggle to tolerate a large portion of avocado (I’m intolerant to sorbitol). This trick allows me to enjoy avocado in the portion size that works for me. Try edamame beans instead of peas if you have an issue with galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS).

As always this hack is intended for people who are interested in losing weight. My focus is helping people wanting to improve their metabolic health. I’ve also added an element of the FODMAP diet into this post since I do follow a modified FODMAP diet and find this useful. If your not looking for that any of the above, keep scrolling on 👍🏼 .
