I love fruit!! Eat the rainbow.
You all know in my Bro Preps, I wasn’t allowed any fruit. The common belief is that fruit is full of sugar and “you won’t look right”. I practice IIFYM and I do eat fruit. I measure every bit of it and make it fit.
In the past, I got very sick in my bro preps. My nutrition was off because I had very little variety in my food. In fact, only eating spinach created a lot of health problems for me.
In the last 2 years, I have focused on my health in both prep and off season.
I also follow solid sports nutrition and get at least 35 different foods per week.
My food tracker, MyNetDiary keeps a running total of this for you.
This year, I am very much fine tuning my food to not just hit my macros but my micro nutrients as well.
Micronutrients, as opposed to macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat), are comprised of vitamins and minerals which are required in small quantities to ensure normal metabolism, growth and physical well-being.

Athletes should eat between 3-5 servings of fruit and 5-10 servings over veggies! I’ve seen very few clients eating that much! I work toward 300-500g of veggies each day. I can’t imagine how a bro prep would accommodate those numbers, especially for bikini girls starting off at next to no carbs to begin with.
This is something I feel really passionate about. Fine tuning my plan to include the fruits, veggies I need!!
I have incorporated in the Juice Plus Trio.
One of the things I love about my trio is I can get micros from fruits and veggies I would normally not enjoy eating. I don’t like beets at all! But beets have benefits! Many times in prep I don’t have extra carbs so I may not get my full servings of fruit. The trio will give me the nutrients without the carbs. I have always used a green powder but I actually like this better.
I ordered my trio and this is how it came.
My trio. These are capsules.
I have always taken great supplements so I’m super excited to incorporate these.
Several of my clients have done their prep with the trio and done beautifully. I believe nutrition counts!!
On a side note: Because I purchased the trio, my kid was able to be enrolled in the Children’s Health Study. He gets the gummy versions free. We will fill out a form quarterly with info about his school attendance and how often he has been sick. He loves them.
