Felicia Romero's Cutting Program

Felicia Romero is an Athlete turned cover model whose looks can swivel heads at break-neck speed. Try out her program for cutting the fat!

When prepped for a photo shoot or fitness contest, Felicia Romero is a smoke stack that burns red hot. To be as tight as possible, Felicia increases the friction of her workouts with a high-intensity training regimen.

But she uses her diet to really mold her body like soft clay, so she doesn't have to kill herself in the gym. If her motto "Abs are made in the kitchen" is true, then she must spend a considerable amount of time slaving over a hot stove.

She definitely gets an A for abs! So if you want to make the grade, be sure to hit the books and learn everything you can from Felicia Romero's cutting regimen.

Felicia Romero's Personal Philosophy

Nutrition Philosophy

Nutrition is extremely important when you want to transform your body. It's probably the most important lifestyle change you can make. When it comes to nutrition, I believe in eating clean whole foods that give my body the nutrients it needs for a well-balanced diet. Eating 5-6 small meals a day is extremely important.

This will not only speed up your metabolism but it will also balance out insulin levels so that your cravings aren't all over the place. I really try to focus my time and energy into the type of macronutrients (protein, carbs, and fats) I'm eating. I make sure that I eat protein at each meal. I aim for a gram and a half of protein per pound of bodyweight.

Always make sure to eat complex carbs that are low glycemic...this includes oatmeal, yams and quinoa to name a few. Healthy fats are equally important and will help you burn body fat as long as you aren't eating excessive amounts. Aim for 2-3 servings of healthy fats per day.

Abs are made in the kitchen, and without a CLEAN healthy diet you will not achieve your desired fitness goals, plain and simple. So make a plan and stick to it. Write down your menu for the week, and prepare your food in advance so you're never stuck without a meal or healthy option.

I believe in scheduling a cheat meal once a week, remember everything in moderation. The way I look at it, you only get your body once so take care of it and treat it well with clean healthy food!

Training philosophy

When it comes to training I'm a "no frills" kinda girl. I built my body and shaped it by sticking to the basics of weight lifting and cardio. My back-to-the-basics approach is performing routine exercises people have been doing for years.

Train each body part specifically and push the targeted muscle to the max to help to build shape and tone. I believe people today overthink their training regimen when they should really focus on being basic, yet consistent.

When I train, I focus on form and intensity. I stay focused and push myself with heavy weights. If you train consistently and eat a properly, the body will respond and you'll see the changes you desire.

Supplementation philosophy

The purpose of supplementation is in the name ... it's "supplementing" your regular diet. Supplements are important but should only be used when you eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

By no means should you solely rely on supplements, but taking products that align with your goals can be very beneficial and conducive to the end result. I don't believe in taking unneeded supplements. I always thoroughly research a product before buying it. Time and time again I see people who take supplements they just don't need.

I tend to sway more toward the health and wellness type of supplements like multivitamin, fish oils, enzymes, calcium, etc. I know these are the nutrients my body needs to help to make it function more efficiently.
