In April of 2009 I started lifting. I lifted 5 days a week, without fail. I loved lifting and I was a total gym rat from the word go. In May of 2010 I started eating clean. I worked with Ruben for 3 months, took a break from his meal plans but continued to eat well on my own and then in January of 2011 I set my sights on competing and really reigned in my diet with the help of my Coach/trainer.
The difference a clean diet makes is obvious. I stumbled upon these before pics today...they just happen to be exactly a year ago. Wow! What a difference a year makes. It is true...are bodies are made BOTH in the kitchen and the gym!! Never again will I waste my efforts in the gym by choosing not to eat a clean diet! The title is wrong...my typo and I don't intend to fix it but the pics are exactly one year apart. April 3 2010 - April 3, 2011.
