  4. Thanks for your thoughts. I can amp up the water intake and cardio. I am just wondering if I should temporarily switch my carb/protein/fat ratio for now. Do competitors or models make any shift in the week or two prior to a competition/ photo shoot? I would love any more thoughts!

  6. I would love some advice. I hope this is the right forum. I typically only eat for health and a good physique is just a nice side effect. I.e. I don't typically limit specific foods and consume more of others for my appearance however. . . I have a bikini photo shoot scheduled in two weeks and I am wondering what adjustments I should make to be a bit more defined/ cut. I'm planning to keep up my current exercise regimen which is a combination of weight lifting, pilates, hot yoga, and cardio. Any thoughts on how to get a bit of extra definition in these last couple weeks? I currently eat only whole plant based foods: Lots of fresh veggies, beans, greens, whole grains, fruit, nuts, seeds. Should I cut back on brown rice (my fav whole grain)? Have more raw? Cut back on the healthy fats (avocado, nuts)? Add more chia or hemp? Again, I do not want to do anything to hurt my health, just looking to get the biggest bang for my vegan fitness buck . . . Maybe I'll post a pic after my successful photo shoot. Thanks!!
  7. I have heard before that coconut oil is a good natural sun protection, but I was always afraid to try it since it seems like oil should make you burn more. Have you tried it, and does it work? - Sorry that was off topic, but on topic I have heard had some success with shea butter for stretch marks. I use coconut oil as sunscreen (and as a natural skin lotion), but only after I already have a bit of a base tan. It's supposed to have an SPF of about 4, BUT it needs to be rubbed in otherwise, yes, the oil will reflect the sun and cause you to burn rather than protecting you. I used it all summer and loved it!
