Back at it again with discussing reverse dieting! I receive DMs on Instagram quite often about exactly how to pursue reverse dieting, the quantity of calories one should eat, and exact weight gain, both in my case and on a general basis. As you most certainly know, this post will center around how much weight … More Reverse Dieting Part 3: How Much Weight Will You Gain?

When? What About Supplemental Fiber?

Put me on “My Strange Addiction” because I am officially obsessed with cauliflower rice sushi.
