How Flexible Dieting (& Eating 1000 Extra Calories a Day) Helped My Fit & Healthy Friend Lose Over 20 lbs 😱

You guys. My friend Shannon here (who is pretty darn fit) (and a mother of two) has been in the fitness industry forever. She’s a fitness expert, widely published model, personal trainer, and co-founder of the Fit Mom Diet.flexible dieting

She’s been been posting on Instagram the last few months how she’s been diligently tracking her macros (carbs, fat, and protein), and has lost over 20 pounds by eating more than 1000 calories EXTRA each day.

Check out her progress pics below. 😱

Yes you are reading those numbers right. She’s actually increased her carb intake by a whopping 115 grams and has still managed to lose body fat!

She’s gone from eating around 1200 calories a day to more than 2200 calories a day.

Although I haven’t written a blog or newsletter in over a year since having my baby, I had to come out of web hiding and share Shannon’s awesome story with you.

Do you want to know how she did it? Have a watch below!
