Today I have a fabulous interview with a Macros 101 client, Kasey Kruer. She has such an amazing story because she hits on a couple of different things that I see in a lot of women and how she was able to overcome them is really inspiring.

One of my goals bringing prior clients is to show you that when we surround ourselves with people who are evidence of what is possible allows us to start believing that it's possible. Andi was able to lose weight without working out and for her, that was really important. I also think there's value in hearing from clients and their perspective of going through the process. It's so awesome to see clients take responsibility and take steps in order to take what they've learned and put it into practice.
People always have a lot of questions about anything you would ever do. Like, why would you intentionally increase calories and want the scale to go up? If you think reverse dieting is like mind-blowing, then bulking is like the next level.

We have to understand what it is and what it is not around bulking.
