When I make green fruit smoothies, I like to add a healthy fat source.
Today, it was hemp hearts.
What so great about hemp?
Hemp seeds have high levels of vitamins A, C and E and beta-carotene and are rich in protein, carbohydrates, minerals and fiber. It’s also a good source of protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. They are delicious, easy to prepare, and can be added to many of your favorite foods.
To increase the protein of my smoothies, I add a scoop of vanilla Nuzest Protein Powder (vegan). Today’s smoothie is LOW in sugar (hard with fruit smoothies), high in protein, and low fat.
1/3 cup frozen mangos
1/3 cup frozen strawberries
2 cups of spinach (or kale)
10 oz of water
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
1-1/2 TBS hemp hearts
Blend all ingredients together.

To lose enough weight and body fat to step on stage, you need the FORMULA.
If you are struggling week after week, this post will REVEAL the exact areas of your prep that you need to focus on for maximum results.
Contest prep requires understanding where you are now, where you need to be, and how to get there.
I’m going to share a little snip from my client Raquel’s check-in form to help you put it all together.
We are in week 4 of her custom 16 week coaching program…
By the way…
You and/or your coach should be tracking measurements, weight, and body fat to ensure you bring the right shape, size, and symmetry to the stage.
So here it is…
The magic formula is finding the sweet spot between your food and workout calories. And then knowing how to adjust it to bust through the dreaded plateaus.
Raquel gets her whole plan updated based on check-in emails & calls, photos, etc.
She was super EXCITED about her stats and success this week. See below a little excerpt from her check-in doc:
We are 12 weeks out and on track to reach our goals.
Are you on track?
If you want to find out where you are now, where you need to be, and how to get there...
Let's chat. In about 20 minutes (or less), I can FIX your prep!
1. Incline hammer press, 45-second rest in between
2. Incline or flat DB fly, 45-second rest in between
1. Dumbbell Military Press: 60-second rest in between
2. Barbell front Raises (elbows slightly bent raise only to shoulder level, hands shoulder width apart): 60-second rest in between

If you have never competed before or even attended an event…
You may not know the difference between the competitor categories.
There are 5 categories for women. Bikini, figure, fitness, physique, and bodybuilding.
The top 2 categories most women fit into are figure and bikini.
Here’s a quick overview for each:
Bikini Competitors are required to have:
· Balance and Shape
· Overall physical appearance
· Complexion, skin tone
· Overall Presentation
Figure Competitors are required to have:
· Small degree of muscularity with separation (no visible striations)
· Overall muscle tone with shapely lines
· Overall firmness
· Not excessively lean
· Healthy appearance
So how do you know which category is best?
Here’s what I tell first timers…
Pick the category that fits your body style/genetics.
If you already have a good amount of muscle and like a more heavier driven weight program–figure would be a better fit.
If you are naturally lean and don’t put on muscle easily, bikini could be a good fit for you.
Now that you know which category would be best for you, it’s time to begin training!
It’s very important to follow the right program for figure or bikini to end up with the type of body the judges want to see in their Top 5! Click the button below to schedule a FREE Coaching Call with me!
