New Year New You Challenge Results

I am so proud of the results of our challenge at Odin Crossfit. We had twenty nine people finish this challenge who lost 200 pounds and 51 inches. We also had people in this challenge who wanted to gain muscle mass as well so although they didn't contribute to the weight loss, they met their goal.

This group was unbelievable. They were highly motivated and extremely compliant and it's all because they had clear REALISTIC goals.

After receiving individual calorie and macronutrient goals by yours truly, (based off of Bodystat 1500 results) myself and Allison Jachowski, owner of Odin Crossfit and Personal Trainer, discussed meal planning, diary tracking, SMART goals, and recipe modification. We provided resources backed by science, held everybody to different forms of accountability, and best of all we celebrated success!

Initial recommendations were somewhat shocking and difficult for some but after they got the hang of it most realized they needed to change their macronutrient intake significantly to eat more of some of the macronutrients and less of others. They also learned how to pay attention to ratios and provide their bodies with the right percentage of fuel. Although this was a hard feat, they did it.

Here's a couple of testimonials I received at the end of the challenge:


This was very eye opening. I am blown away by the results but feel like the changes I made are sustainable. Thank you.

Amy... I don't think it's exaggerating to say this program changed my life. I will not go back to how I used to eat... and I know I'll be a healthier, happier person for it!

I love the perky buns and new thighs!!! Everyone seems to feel great too and can incorporate a new healthier lifestyle with REAL food đŸ¥˜ thank you Amy Mastro

Weight loss is difficult. It's not just about calories in verses calories out. It's about macronutrient ratios, micronutrient absorption, physical activity, and your psychological motivation and readiness for change. If you've tried to lose weight before and can't sustain it your mind and body may need a tune up. That's exactly what the professionals are there for. Your health should be your biggest priority, without it you won't be here as long as you'd like.

Be well,

Amy Goldsmith

The Truth Behind Clean Eating

A quick trip to the grocery store or chain restaurant and you will likely be bombarded with the concept of “clean eating” foods that claim to be “organic”, “natural”, “non GMO”, and “gluten free”. There is also the laundry list of foods you should avoid such as high fructose corn syrup, processed foods, and various toxins or chemicals. As a consumer it can be very overwhelming and intimidating to choose which foods are best for you.
While clean eating is not a new sensation, it has become increasingly popular in part due to misinformation on social media. Fear mongering is the latest marketing strategy in which companies are deliberately arousing fear in consumers to help sell their product. For example, products claim to be non-GMO when in fact it is not produced as a GMO food in the first place. There are only 8 genetically modified crops commercially prepared in the U.S. Products that have never contained gluten have a “Gluten free” label on them. Then there is the irrational conce…

A Note to Self before "Bathing Suit Season"

We are coming up on Memorial Day Weekend. The pools will open, beach season begins, and everyone is scurrying around to buy new bathing suits or cover ups. Although I LOVE summer there's an aspect of this time of year that I very much dislike.  I absolutely cannot stand the insecurity bathing suits bring to the mind. How many of your friends' Facebook and Instagram posts read "Gotta get bikini ready" or "I'm not ready for bathing suit season?" It's on everyone's minds and we have much better things to worry about people.

The fact of the matter is that MOST people feel vulnerable in a bathing suit. Think about it you are practically naked and I'm pretty sure the woman whose body modeled your final product may have had longer legs or is 15 years old.

Is it really worth allowing yourself to feel vulnerable and insecure over something that realistically isn't even created to showcase your body's strengths?  What in the world does how yo…
