Q: Why did you decide to join Team WAG?

A: I heard good things about Working Against Gravity from a friend and I am always open minded to trying new things and see if I like it for myself.


Q: Was there anything about the program that surprised you?

A: I was surprised by how much fat is in my food normally and also just being more aware of macros content generally..


Q: As an athlete, your training schedule is intense and varied. How have you managed to stay on track while balancing all of your commitments?

A: I stay on track mostly by being prepared in advance! It took a bit at first to organize my day nutrition wise especially with this new way of eating but once you prepared in advance everything is easier.


Q: How has your performance in the gym been affected by tracking, if at all?

A: I think it's always better to weight and measure your food. It gave me more knowledge about what I need to (eat to) perform better.


Q: What has been the biggest change you've made in your lifestyle since joining?

A: The biggest change has been eating less fat and more carbs.


Q: What advice do you have for other people considering hiring a nutrition coach?
