Megan Loda On How She Fell In Love With Fitness

Megan Loda was tired of falling short of her ideals, so changed from the outside.


Activating the turning point

I fell in love with the way I would feel after a really good workout. It turned from a task to a hobby. My sister-in law was a personal trainer and she got me on my first workout plan.



Dietary reinventions

Your diet is a critical part of fitness success, but your body will often crave foods that it “can’t” have. Finding an alternative to your craving is very important. Breakfast is my favorite meal, so I often have a large feed in the morning.

I love oatmeal, eggs, turkey bacon and fruit. Salads, chicken, fish, sweet potatoes, rice, zoodles, lean red meats and veggies are my also on my list of go-to ingredients for any meal.


My biggest challenges

It was tough to find foods that work with my body. Everyone’s body is different, therefore, foods will affect everyone differently.

It was a trial-and-error game to figure out which foods gave me energy and which foods I could easily digest.


My supplements

Whey Protein, BCAA, Glutamine, Daily Multi-Vitamin, Probiotics, Fish Oil.
