Hi, love your tumblr! I just want to get some advice about food... i work out 3 times a day and eat (more or less) clean food but still doesnt see any differences, do you have any list of food to avoid or need to eat for loosing weight and clean eating? Thanks anyway for your blog, it inspires me a lot!

First, thanks! Second, holy shit 3x a day is a lot. If you’re working out heavily, you need to make sure you’re eating enough to support that much energy output - if you’re female, at least around 2,000-2,500 calories, more if you’re male. Under eating, which is easier when you consume mostly “clean” foods, actually deters weight loss by storing fat instead of burning it, which is possibly why you don’t see a difference. If you are eating enough, then you’ve probably hit a plateau which can usually be overcome by mixing up your workouts (if you focus on cardio, switch to more weight training, vice versa) and shocking your body to push through.

I fell of the wagon big time. last year around this time I decided to lose weight the healthy way and it worked ... really well but only because I was on holiday. as soon as the semester started I couldn't make time for runs or exercise and eating right. I lost about 15kgs then but now im terrified of the scale. I feel all my hard work went down the drain. I don't know if I can do it again. and I feel I have gained everything back. my usual bikini body motivation doesn't work anymore. im so d

Of course you can do it again - you did it once, so you already know you’re capable. It’s a fact. You just have to accept that you have to work hard again. Try to find another source of motivation besides having a bikini body - being healthy, having more energy, having fun and experiencing new activities are imo more valuable than simply looking good but whatever reasons you have, start by trying something you’ve never done before like a workout program or a class to kickstart yourself back on track.
