Alessandra Laura: My Lifestyle-Diet and Workout Routine

Back Story
I always played sports, always involved in workout groups, always an athlete. Even during the time when I was gaining weight was I active with workouts. I felt like I was doing everything I needed to make a difference in my body, or so I thought.  It was frustrating because I felt like I was doing all the right things, but you don't know what you don't know: Like the fact that its 80% diet and 20% working out.

I’ve been wanting to share my lifestyle change with you all for so long and I am so  happy to finally have the opportunity to sit down and do that. A little bit of my background, I grew up in a Mexican household where meat consumption was a HUGE part of our diet; like meat on our plate for every single one of our meals. It is and was just part of our culture. I can’t blame anyone or anything.

I vividly remember one summer day while on vacation in Mexico with family as a little girl,
