0064 - Interview with LAURIN CONLIN: What FIRST TIME COMPETITORS NEED TO KNOW + ALL OF YOUR CONTEST PREP QUESTIONS ANSWERED

February 21, 2019

Laurin Conlin started Team LoCoFit with the mission to redefine healthy within the fitness industry. As a competitor within the industry, she saw both a lack of education and quality from many coaches. That is why Team LoCoFit focuses on quality coaching, putting the clients long term interests first and taking an educated, evidence based approach to all matters.

Laurin’s interest of nutrition started from a very disordered place; as she was anorexic for many years growing up. Her interest then shifted to nutrition and performance as a track and field athlete in high school, to then an amateur bodybuilder. She competed for several years as an NPC Figure competitor before making the switch to the Bikini division. In 2014, she won the overall at NPC Nationals in Bikini, earning her professional status. Laurin has competed for several years as an IFBB Bikini pro since.

She attended the Florida State University for her undergraduate degree, pursuing a Bachelors in Exercise Science. She then went on to complete her Masters in Exercise Science from University of South Florida in Dr. Bill Campbell’s lab. Laurin’s Masters research focused on how different dieting strategies effect weight loss and weight regain. Particularly, looking at a ‘flexible’ diet where no foods are excluded versus a meal plan, where foods were excluded. Her research was the first study to directly examine this relationship between these two diets.

Laurin travels to give lectures and seminars on a variety of topics including nutrition, training, psychological aspects of dieting, running a business and more. She hosts two podcasts, Redefine Healthy Radio and The UNglamorous Life. Additionally, Laurin works with several companies within the industry who align with her values and provide the best products and services within their market.

In today's episode

  • What first time competitors need to know
  • What’s the biggest problem with contest prep coaches in the industry
  • Are sweeteners and sugar free products OK during contest prep
  • Fasted cardio vs. cardio after a lifting session? What’s better?

0062 - Top 8 Dieting MISTAKES

February 7, 2019

In today's episode, Ange shares the top 8 dieting MISTAKES that could be holding you back from achieving your fat loss goals. 

The truth is that pretty much any diet will work if it is applied correctly. Whether you eat carbs, meat, dairy, gluten, etc. doesn’t really matter much (unless you have an allergy). What really matters most is whether you can sustain a caloric deficit and adhere to the dieting strategies you choose. With that being said, there are many mistakes that will make it much harder for you to lose weight. In fact, some dieting strategies might actually lead to the reverse effect compared to what you had intended. As such, it is important for you to educate yourself on which dieting mistakes are the most harmful to your success.

With the help of Vince Pitstick of Nutrition Dynamic, my cycle has come back and libido is on the rise alongside. ⁣

In today's episode I explain all of the hormone healing protocol that we used to get my menstrual cycle back.
