    • Hey! I train with weights 5 days a week and eating clean is what keeps me lean! :)

    • That’s it? What about cardio? Fats/proteins?

    • Cardio…only if I’m prepping for a competition, and then it’s only walking or some form of slow cardio. How strict my diet is also depends on competition prep. I keep my veggies green and my protein lean b4 a show.
