If you’ve read my Fitness Story, then you’ll know I have been training in Brazilian jiu jitsu for just a little over a season now. Raise your voice to Gracie Barra Alabama! I’ve competed a couple of times myself and have actively supported my hubby and teammates while they train and compete. Whether skinny, overweight, or in between somewhere, almost all of us have a weight-cut experience of some sort. Spring 2014: I’m working half marathons on a regular basis, training at my BJJ fitness center 3-4 times per week, and eating healthy fairly. I was 148lbs and about a size 8. I was a reasonably fresh white belt, but I had formed great training and support and was being encouraged to contend.
I experienced done one small competition and acquired held my very own. Competing is scary but good for me. I am put by it outside my comfort zone, lights a fireplace under me as as training will go significantly, and can be a great deal of fun if I don’t allow it freaks me out completely (that I tend to do).

Losing this much weight can be considered a sign of malnutrition, where a person’s diet doesn’t contain the right amount of nutrition,” says Bhakti Samant, chief dietician, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital.
