MAC Member Spotlight - Sandra Reynolds

In October of 2017 I was tired of being overweight and depressed. Nothing fit right, I hated the way I looked. I felt like my prime had passed. I decided to take control. I joined MAC...and it changed my life.

Like many people, I believed this would always be the case, however when I hit my forties I discovered I was wrong. In my youth I had acquired some bad habits, smoking, poor diet etc... These bad habits caught up with me. I was getting the "love handles" and if I tried to exercise, it was difficult because I couldn't breathe due to my smoking.

"It’s one thing to admit to yourself that you’ve gained weight but seeing it.... that’s a whole other story. I just decided that I needed a huge (pun intended) change in my life."

"The doctors and the nurses were convinced that if I was not in as good shape as I was, I would not have survived any of it. All of the weight training with machines and class workouts really paid off in the most amazing way."

It is not easy, but anyone and everyone can make significant change in their lifestyle. Like so many things, I had to decide for myself to make a change before anybody or anything could help me.  There are virtually unlimited people and resources waiting and willing to help, but it simply could not work until I made the decision to change.

My best pieces of advice are:

1-     If your goal is fat loss, ensure that strength training is the primary focus of your exercise routine.  A common misconception (especially among women) is that you need to do more cardio to burn more calories, which will translate to fat loss.  The truth is, the positive metabolic effect of added muscle will trump the temporary calorie burn from cardio EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Tell us a little bit about yourself: I am 32 years old. I am originally from Tennessee. In 2012, I graduated from West Texas A&M with a M.S in Meat Science. With that degree, I have worked in food manufacturing facilities where there was always good tasting food available. I am currently working in R&D at AdvancePierre Foods in West Chester. My hobbies include hunting, fishing, and now my love for the gym and a healthier lifestyle. I am a devoted family man with a wonderful, loving wife and an 8.5 month old little girl.

Don’t Forget Liquid Calories!

Guide to Healthy Eating: How to Calculate Calories Derived from Fat

Reducing the amount of fat you eat is not quite the secret answer to weight, but make no mistake about it: paying no attention to how many of the calories from fat you consume in a day is a sure path to weight gain. Figuring out the sources of the fat you consume is easy enough to do, but healthy eating also means figuring out how much of that fat accounts for the total number of calories you consume.
