Brittney: Nutrition Journey through Pregnancy and After!

Name: Brittney

Age: 31

What led you to flexible eating/Flex Fuel?:

I reached out to Flex Fuel when I was 5.5 months pregnant with my daughter. I was really looking for guidance on how much food my body needed for pregnancy. I knew I wanted healthy weight gain, but didn’t want to go crazy with the whole “eating for two thing”  

After having Briar in July I took a 3 month break to focus on her. I started back the end of September with the goal to lose my baby weight, but it was important to me to still be able to nurse.

What do you do to stay active?: I Crossfit 3 days/week and run 3-5 miles a week.

What has been your biggest challenge through this process so far and how did you overcome it?

In the beginning my biggest challenge was eating all the food I got to eat throughout the day. I was in the mindset of eating little, then binging when my appetite got out of control.

What has been your biggest success through this process so far? 

I have two! My biggest success so far is getting my first pull-up! I had been working on that for 5 years and after dropping weight, it finally happened! Also, my body is in the best shape it’s ever been in at 31 after two kids! I’m even seeing baby abs trying to come out!

Why do you like most about the flexible eating process?

I like the planning process of flexible eating. It gives me control over my food versus feeling like my food controls me.

What is your favorite treat to fit into your macros? 

I get two rice cakes with 2tbsp of peanut butter and a tablespoon of chocolate chips EVERYNIGHT

What’s your favorite macro hack? 

My favorite macro hack is adding in collagen in my coffee if I find my self having a hard time getting my protein in.

What do you like most about having a nutrition coach?

I love the accountability and guidance of having a nutrition coach. I have no idea what I’m doing so it’s nice to rely on someone who knows my goals and how to get me there the healthiest way possible.

Would you recommend others to Flex Fuel and why?

Yes, yes, yes! If you want to be able to have a healthy relationship with food and still be able to eat while you see results, Flex Fuel is where it’s at!

Brittney 9 Months Pregnant!

Brittney almost 8 months post partum!

Katy took Brittney through a reverse diet, making sure she had ample calories to support a healthy pregnancy! After taking 3 months off (eating intuitively with the habits she learned through her reverse), we took some time to make sure she was eating the right amount to support breastfeeding, then we began a dieting phase. Through consistency in her daily nutrition and workouts, Brittney continues to see improvements in body composition all while maintaining a healthy relationship with food!

We are so proud of you Brittney and so happy to call you a part of our Flex Fuel family!
