Calorie intake


Do you know what’s more important – how many calories you take, or how much nutritional food you are eating each day?

Actually if you start to listen to your body then it will tell you the answer. Your body will tell you which food is good for you and which is not. Think about it – if you eat junk food or processed food then your body has to work so hard to digest it that after you eat you’ll feel low energy, sleepy, bloated…

Are you giving enough attention to what you’re eating? When you eat healthy, fresh, real food you’ll feel much higher energy. You’ll feel much lighter. Maybe you’ll feel like playing outside with your kids, or doing some exercise.

Let’s say you’re eating 2000 calories per day, this doesn’t mean that you’re getting enough nutrition. That’s why it is so important that you’re aware of what you are eating and when you are eating.

Food is your energy! It’s like the gas you put in your car – if you put bad quality fuel in your car then it will start having serious problems, and probably break down. But good quality gas will keep it working perfectly.

Try to eat frequently – maybe every 2.5 to 3 hours. This will help you avoid eating too much at one time.

Check your daily food intake, and really make sure you read all the labels correctly. If you don’t understand the ingredients, or it doesn’t say what’s inside, then don’t eat it! Eat real food – there’s so much of it on Molokai, everywhere you look there’s delicious fresh food. Live the healthy life that you deserve!

You’ve probably heard so many people say “I love what I do”, BUT in my case I can truly say it from my heart. I’ve competed in sports all my life, but it wasn’t so long ago that I really understood that actually I can only ever compete with myself.

“You are perfect, until compare yourself with someone else”

I started contest prep in 2011, and since then I didn’t stop competing. In some competitions I got first place, in some it went not so well, but every competition that I prepared for taught me something more about myself and helped me take the correct direction, which I believe has shaped my work and my life in such a positive way.

When I competed in my first bikini competition I had just moved from my home country Turkey to Canada, and was getting used to the Canadian lifestyle — and, of course, the language too, which was the hardest part for me. I always wanted to do a fitness or bikini competition, but when I was still in Turkey the work and cultural differences made it so hard to do.

So I was in Vancouver BC, working at Steve Nash Fitness Club, and one of my co-workers, who was a competitor herself, asked me “why you are not competing?” I started asking myself and questioning if I could do it? I’d never done anything like it before… Maybe you’re asking yourself the same questions right now! Of course I told myself “absolutely, I can’’. And my competition journey began!

Each show that I competed in gave me more knowledge about my body, and how I can improve. Of course, it’s not easy to correctly identify what’s missing with training and nutrition, and this learning process and all of the experiences pushed me to learn more… I’ve been a personal trainer since 1993, but I wanted more and began my nutrition studies. I finished my Comprehensive Nutrition and Sports Nutrition degrees.

And yes, I am still competing! You can see a list of all of the competitions that I’ve competed in further down this page. And right now, AGAIN, I am getting ready for my next show…!

I’ll warn you right now, it wasn’t easy at all. The easiest part was the training, which was already part of my daily life. But posing, dieting, supplementation, getting a bikini, finding a trainer… This was much tougher, not the mention the cost for the registration, jewelry, tanning, hair and make-up, they cost a lot too. 

But I wouldn’t let anything stop me, and right after my first show — WBFF in May, 2011 — I immediately started looking for the next show to compete in. I was hooked!

I am so happy to be able to help other competitors who are willing to work and improve their mind and health at the same time. My goal is to create healthy and happy bikini competitors, who want to challenge themselves and put in the work that needs to be done to reach their goals. There is really no easy way to get there… But there is a smart way.

I look forward to working together and sharing my knowledge with YOU to get you in the best shape of your LIFE!!!!!
