How Did You Get Started?

I have always made exercise a part of my life, but as with many women, my efforts increased when I wanted to lose my post-pregnancy weight and regain my pre-pregnancy physique. I began my training on my own, focusing heavily on cardio and diet and minimally on weight training. As you can imagine, it was the results I saw from the weight training that truly got me excited. I am a very determined, disciplined, and goal oriented person. By 2005, I was ready to undertake the bigger challenge of training for a body building competition.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

Carb-Cycling is the most effective diet plan for me to lean out. My carb-cycling diet cycle consists a High-Medium-Low-Low-Low cycle, where protein intake is adjusted along with the carbohydrate intake on each day for maximum effectiveness. I also try to stay lean all year around with more flexibility on my eating, but I try to eat cleanly all year around with little indulgence.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I believe cleaning eating is the best way to go, and I use two types of protein powder, depending on my diet need of the day/time: Nature Best's Isopure protein powder and BSN's Syntha-6 protein powder. Amino Acids is also essential prior and post workout.
