Cycling Your Diet And Fitness Programs For Better Health & Hormone Regulation

Many of you have asked how I cycle my diet (macro ratios) and fitness program to remain fit throughout the year. My yearly cycle has three phases: bulking (building muscle), cutting (getting ripped), and maintenance.  In the following video, I explain the various macro ratios and workouts I use during each phase. Notes, discussed in the video, can be found below video.


Macro Ratios

Bulking- 1 gram protein per pound of bodyweight; 2 grams carbs per pound of bodyweight; .4 grams fat per pound of bodyweight

Example: In a 128 pound woman, she would eat 128 grams protein, 256 grams carbs, and 51 grams fat, each day.

Cutting- 1.2 grams protein per pound of bodyweight; 1 gram carbs per pound of bodyweight; 25 grams fat

Example: In a 130 pound woman, she would eat 156 grams protein, 130 grams carbs, and 25 grams fat, each day.

Maintenance- 1 gram protein per pound of bodyweight; 1.6 grams carbs per pound of bodyweight; .35 grams fat per pound of bodyweight

Example: In a 126 pound woman, she would eat 126 grams protein, 202 grams carbs, and 44 grams fat, each day.

Exercise Tips For Each Cycle

Bulking- No or very little cardio; heavy lifting and yoga; long periods of rest between sets (1 to 2 minutes)

Cutting- Heavy cardio (4 to 5 times a week); HIIT (High intensity interval training), Plyometrics, and Tabata; weightlifting lower weight, more reps per set; less rest between sets (30 seconds); supersets encouraged

Maintenance- Cut cardio to 3 times a week; vary between heavy lifting and lighter weights, more reps; yoga and/or pilates encouraged

The Healthy Foodie

The healthy foodie is the person who loves to batch cook, create healthy recipes, or just eat healthy foods. They appreciate gifts like fresh organic food baskets, gift cards to their favorite health food market, cooking appliances or tools, and cookbooks. Being a healthy foodie myself, here are some of my favorite gifts.

These are my top picks that make great gifts for your healthy friends and family. Don’t forget to get yourself a few treats as well. This is the perfect time to take advantage of low prices.

I know most people put off cleaning up their eating and lifestyle until after the holidays. If you’re one of those people, you might want to start stocking up on some of the essentials you’re going to need. Of course, if you’re planning on adding fitness to your life, I suggest getting a copy of my ebook, Sickness To Fitness Quick Start Guide. It’s not just for people with autoimmune disease. It’s for anyone who would like to start a fitness routine, that’s easy to follow and maintain. I’ll be lowering the price to just $5 from December 15, 2016 to December 31, 2016. Just click this link, between those dates, to get this deal.
