Hello, My name is Lyndy! I am a Clinical Lab Scientist, CrossFitter and the Ten Twenty Nutritional Guide. These are just a few of my skill sets. Am I an expert in nutrition? Absolutely not! I do not have a fancy nutritionist degree. I never claim anything but more of a guide. Starting CrossFit in 2013, I dove into being the complete athlete. I was in the gear, gym 6 days a week, and totally paleo! Before 2013, let me take you into my complete failures in nutrition. I was a soccer player that could eat candy and pasta and gain abs. I was always 99 pounds and extremely lean before I graduated. Then apparently turning 19, my metabolism decided to die. I gained about 43 pounds. From 19 until 23, I fluctuated from 126 - 140 pounds. I exercised but definitely didn't eat right. I defeated the purpose. By the time I turned 24, I was fed up. I decided a bodybuilding bikini show was a way to help me. I figured it would keep me motivated and help me eat. In my mind, that was the definition of healthy. I spent two years eating nothing, starving myself, and only working on isolated lifting. Now, forward to 2013, as I'm being told I don't have the body for the bikini show, as I'm sitting at 100 pounds, I found CrossFit.
I lived, breathed and slept CrossFit. I learned nutrition. I did the zone, paleo and clean eating. I figured out what worked, what was good, what was terrible, and found my groove. My ramble of my life story is just a long version that I've been on the whole spectrum of too tiny all the way to overweight. With my failures, I've developed experience. Working with the owner of the gym I started in, who has a ton of experience, taught me a lot. I am constantly researching and educating myself on new fads, the good and the bad, and the best when it comes to nutrition. I am finishing up my exercise science degree. Some may say you need a degree to tell people what to eat. I personally believe you need someone who understands your goals. I fully believe not one person can be treated the same when developing meal plans. Chicken and rice is boring. I am always figuring out way to take unhealthy and turn it into healthy. I am very creative with food. I want to show people food can be healthy and taste good. I am here to help whether you want five pounds gone, gain muscle, or lose 100 pounds. Nutrition is my game.
