My eBook on Macronutrients

Allegra Paris

I wrote this eBook as a way to introduce how I'd be helping my clients with their diets. The best way for you to understand your macronutrients is by first understanding what they are and how to "count" them. Counting your macros Don't worry- I don't actively count my macros with food scales or calculators and I don't promote that. Instead, I study and memorize the macros in the foods I eat regularly to help me eyeball a well-rounded, macronutrient-balanced diet. This sounds more aggressive than it is. You will naturally start to memorize a lot of information as you begin reading food...

Protein Bar Recipe: PB&J Balls

Protein Bar Recipe: PB&J Balls

Allegra Paris

I am a huge fan of PB&J- any combo, any ratio, I'm IN! The unfortunate part is that it's high in both carbs and fat.  I end up making a good ol' PB&J for dessert if I'm going to have one. I'll use low sugar jam and peanut butter that has only two ingredients in it: peanuts and salt... not all the syrups that get added these days.  PROTEIN BARS I always use a vegan brand with clean ingredients- I have a bad reaction to synthetic sugars and different kinds of whey protein/isolate fillers. BEST BRANDS: I LOVE the flavors that @one1brands makes,...

For me, fasted cardio is one of my favorite ways to keep fat off, simply by hitting the gym before I’ve had my first meal of the day.

The value of fasted cardio is rooted in our hormonal systems, causing your body to go into fat-burn mode before it has had a chance to process the current glucose in your system. Your body first and foremost is designed to survive when food and water...

Fitness And... Donuts?

Fitness And... Donuts?

Allegra Paris

Normally, when we think of donuts, we think of the deliciously fluffy and greasy breakfast desserts that are anything but conducive to fitness. That’s why all of the personal trainer and athlete posts on social media today with donuts can be confusing. Also- when I say donuts, I also mean protein muffins… because I am also just as obsessed with those! "How do donuts fit into a healthy lifestyle? Can I eat donuts and build muscle?" The macronutrient equation It’s all about choices. When donuts fit in your macro ratio you have to hit each day, they have no negative effect...

The Secret To Burning Calories... Without Working Out?

Allegra Paris

When I first started working out, like everyone, I thought that cardio was enough to see results. After awhile, I discovered no changes to my body or muscle sculpting was occurring. In fact, there was a time period when I was running almost every day, and I actually started to gain weight. This is because my body was becoming so depleted of hydration and electrolytes that it was telling my body I was hungry, so I began to eat more than I actually needed. That’s when I started to learn more about lifting and how to get the results I...
