When I say I’m bloated... I’m bloated 😂. I do these bloat posts every now and then but people still get surprised at how big my belly gets. Yes I get bloated and it happens when I eat certain foods. I pretty much know which foods are going to do it (high FODMAP) but sometimes I will eat it anyways 🙈. Like earlier I had Greek yogurt and I got bloated within a few minutes but the bloat only lasted for a few hours and now I’m back to normal 🤗. The foods that make me the most bloated are yogurts, protein powders, apples, pears, watermelon, broccoli, cauliflower and asparagus.
So while I appreciate the feature, the pics shown are not in the same time frame. I just wanted to clarify to the new followers that the last pic is from my prep in the late summer. So yes I do get bloated but I don’t magically lose 15 lbs and have abs 😂. Since Im doing bodybuilding I go through phases of bulking and cutting. The reason being is I would like to put on more muscle (which is sooo freakn hard for a girl 😩) so Im eating more which gives me more calories to grow and energy to kill it in the gym. Gaining body fat is going to happen so I’m fluffier 🤷♀️. My next show is in October so I will start getting leaner before then. I’m still new at this and learning as I go. I share the whole process on my IG ... good and bad so don’t expect to see a perfect page. If your someone who gets bloated and discouraged in your fitness journey because of it .. don’t.
