Like, others have been doing, Nathalie is a client of mine who will be writing about her journey on my Slim and Sculpt Program every week. Nathalie does not have a blog of her own, so instead, she will be posting her weekly updates on my blog. Please be sure to check in every week, along with the others to hear more about how these clients are liking their programs!
Here is her introduction post as she embarks on the plan!
Hi guys !
My name is Nathalie and I’m 25 years old. I have been modeling since about 5 years now and part of being a professional model is of course eating right + exercise. I was more than thrilled when I was offered to try Carrie’s new fitness regimen. I have followed Carrie on facebook since forever and I was very inspired when I saw her results.
The program gives some nutritional guidelines. I think they are great but I have my own nutritional plan that I follow which I like a bit better ( just because I don’t always have access to a kitchen or food). My life is very chaotic sometimes and that’s why I like Intermittent fasting. I eat about 1800kcal per day and do one or two 24 hour fasts to create a caloric deficit. This also allows me to have a social life on the weekend because then I get to have a drink or have a sweet treat..
This is an example of a typical eating day:
|Optimum Nutrition – Casein Protein, 1 scoop||115||6g||1g||24g||0mg||250mg||0g||0g|

|Danone – Cottage Cheese – Verse Kaas, 100 g||89||2g||4g||11g||0mg||370mg||0g||0g|
But as I said before.. Carrie’s guidelines are great as well and in my opinion better if you have a more scheduled life! J All roads lead to Rome
I’m very excited to start my first week with Carrie’s ‘Slim and Sculpt’ program. The program is divided into 3 phases, each phase consists of 4 weeks. This week I’m starting with 3 strength training sessions and 1 HITT session. The exercises are very easy to understand and it looks like it’s going to be a fun challenge! See you later with a recap of week 1
