Without any doubt, WAG has worked better for me than anything else when it comes to my body composition. I've lost fat steadily but slowly, gaining muscle in the process. It hasn't been easy. Counting macros and measuring food takes planning and sacrifices. But I'm really surprised by how manageable it is. And you quickly figure out how to make the flexible part of the diet work for you.
Before joining WAG, I lost 62 pounds, much of it with Precision Nutrition. I also worked with them as a mentor. That gave me a lot of good habits and a really strong base for WAG, which I believe contributes highly to the results I've seen. I joined WAG because I wanted a more specific diet to get my body past a year-long plateau. Maintenance is great and all, but it has its limits.
I also wanted to drop a weight class for Olympic lifting. I started WAG in December 2016 and went in at 84 kg thinking maybe I could be a 75 kg lifter by July. I just lifted as a 75 kg, in April, and am clocking in at 74.3 kg. During this time I've hit new PRs in all my lifts.
My coach has been amazing. I love that she competes in lifting because she knows exactly how this feels. She's been a lot of support, especially leading up to my competition. And she's very kind when I double check to make sure she didn't "accidentally" forget my carbs.
Is this hard? Yeah. But so is lifting. For me, it's worth it. And I still manage to squeeze in ice cream every night.
