Ledbetter describe que su cuerpo estaba bajo un déficit calórico cuyas duras dietas y entrenamiento cambiaron su vida a un estilo de vida no saludable.

La ex competidora de bikini Julie Ledbetter, de Colorado Springs, Colorado, ha iluminado algunos de esos secretos en un poste viral de Instagram – y, ella divulga, “el viaje no es siempre bonito”. Para poder lograr una imagen virosa pueden haber muchos cambios y para el mundo #fitspo lograrlo lo es todo.

«Estuve casi en los únicos dígitos de grasa corporal (no saludable), constantemente frío (a mediados de JULIO), siempre pensando en mi próxima comida porque estaba en un profundo déficit calórico y no podía faltar a una sesión de gimnasio porque «Estuve semanas fuera de mi programa», escribió Ledbetter en el post. Dese que abandono esta estricta rutina de ejercicio la joven perdió todo en lo que ha venido trabajando durante este tiempo, resaltando que recuperó totalmente su vida.

Para demostrar cómo ha cambiado, Ledbetter comparte un antes y después  para manifestar su transformación: una que la muestra en 2014 antes de ganar una competencia de bikini y otra que la muestra hoy, cuando está «feliz, sana y libre» sin planes para competir más.


TURN THAT SOUND ON ladies, you need to hear this one LOUD-n-CLEAR Since bikini competition season is is FULL swing this time of year and tons of people are showing their highlight reels from their bikini competitions on instagram and using them for program covers and advertisements, I felt compelled to show you my BEFORE and AFTER from the day before I won my #WBFF bikini pro card back in 2014 to today (happy, healthy and free with NO plans to compete in the future). Looks a bit backwards from what you think in your mind huh? It most likely will for over half of you. That is the fitness industry for you..showing you the highlight reel of what they call a «bikini» body. For those of you who have competed, you know what I am talking about when I say that the body on the left is NOT maintainable year-round. I was almost in the single digits for body fat % (not healthy), constantly cold (in the middle of JULY), always thinking about my next meal because I was in a deep caloric deficit and couldn’t miss a gym session because «I was ___ weeks out from my show». I also remember sending that exact photo to my coach asking him if I was ready because I thought I still needed to lose fat in my stomach…like what?! Talked about a WARPED brain I had. The body on the right is a maintainable body. I am at a healthy body fat %, I am not constantly thinking about my next meal or stressed when things take priority over my workouts. I am strong, content and most importantly confident of the body I have built since 2014. This body is something that I can confidently say I can maintain for life. Moral of this post: Ladies, do NOT…I repeat, do NOT look at all these bikini competition photos or magazine covers these next couple months and compare your body to theirs. 99.9% of them are either showing a VERY VERY VERY extreme highlight reel OR photoshopped. No matter how «healthy» your approach is to the stage, it is an extreme. Plain and Simple. BTW this is not bashing competing in any way, just stating the fact that competitors often tend to use photos from their competition photoshoot to advertise these bikini programs and it is just NOT right. #EndRant
