Sara Pereira (female, 23)
How Fitness and Determination Helped Me to Accomplish Weight Loss
I was sort of overweight back in my country. Weighing 160-170 lbs at 5’0. No Bueno. I never had a good relationship with my body or food. I was lazy and a quitter. Once in Houston, I had the option to either eat all the fast food that I never had before; OR, I could do something about my weight and self-image.

How MMA and Weight Lifting Became My Lifestyle
I try not to eat fast food and try to eat a lot of green, chicken and meat. I will eat carbs and protein in the afternoon and morning and have protein at night but no carbs.

How I Became a Successful Celebrity Personal Trainer in LA
My parents have been my mentors, 71 and 76 and they are so healthy and fit still! Every meal is cooked at home with fresh produces. We never ate fast food, sodas, oily, fried…

How I Got into Fitness and Hustled to Get a Big Supplement Sponsor
Now I eat mostly clean and nutritious meals throughout the week but will also indulge if I go to restaurants or at family meals. I enjoy fast food occasionally and will snack if I feel like it.
Day Micheli

I'm a Brazilian Pro Wrestler. This is How I Train to Improve My In-Ring Performance
Biggest challenge is to change all my routine. I didn’t believe I could handle it. For example, I love fast food and I thought I couldn’t stay away of a hamburger for a long time and… I did it. It’s hard in the beginning, but it’s a relief when you get.

How I Build Muscle Mass Despite Having a Fast Metabolism
I will not cheat, but I like to eat fast food. I have no major problems with this. I will change something else in my meals later.

How I Started Competing in Natural Figure Bodybuilding in My Late 40s
I don’t have a sweet tooth and never eat cakes, donuts, sugary pastries, sweet foods, desserts, etc or any form of junk/fast food. I never have cravings for these even when getting ready for competition.

I Own a Gym. This Is How I Combine My Own Training with Training Clients
I believe that I need to assist people in these other areas to “win” them back to a healthier life by beating the fast food chains and cable TV networks that prevent people from choosing physical activity and healthy eating.
Jasa Oslaj
Jasa Oslaj (male, 21)
How I Went from Skinny and Small to Strong and Bulky
On cut season, I just lower my carb and sugar intake, while on bulking season I literally consume as much as I possibly can. I usually have a big cheat day during the weekend or on Fridays. On a cheat day I usually eat some sort of fast food, depending on how I feel.

Terence Bradley
Terence Bradley (male, 21)
How I Learned the Importance of Discipline for Getting Better and Stronger
I try to meet a protein goal depending on my body weight at the time. I still eat fast food occasionally, along with other things, but I just mix those meals in throughout the day. I know as I get older I won’t be able to be as lax with my diet, but as far as right now, I eat basically whatever I want.
Daz Hallett

How I Won Mr. Universe, Got Surgery and Then Won Mr. Universe Again
I will eat the occasional fast food but only if it’s the only option because I’m not a big fan of them anyway. I crave more things like bread, home cooked chips, my wife’s lasagna.
Alex Buffone

How I Train, Eat and Prepare to Be the First Male Vegan Athlete on the Mr. Olympia Stage
I always make sure to have meals cooked and ready to go for a few days at a time, that way I’m not reaching for fast food or junk food.
Eric Leto
Eric Leto (male, 33)
How I Became a Vegan WBFF Pro Fitness Model and European Vice Champion
After years of dieting, I don’t feel any craving anymore for sweets or fast food, it just doesn’t resonate with me anymore. I think the last time I drank alcohol was like three years ago, not a big fan of it and especially knowing what it does to your body and your muscles. Coffee is consumed rarely and tea on a everyday basis.
Bre Hess
Bre Hess (female, 28)
How I Lost 185 Lbs, Became a Personal Trainer and Fitness Model
I cannot say that I do meal prep because I don’t, I eat what they consider one ingredient foods. I eat no fast food whatsoever.
Easton Elliott
Easton Elliott (male, 25)
How I Stopped Smoking 35 Cigarettes a Day, Became a Personal Trainer and Got Really Fit
I don’t count calories anymore but have a rough idea. I’m also much more careful of eating out at fast food restaurants (but I still do!). If I go out with friends or there’s a social event, I don’t usually hold back.
