Solving Weight Issues with Fitness

After only six weeks, Chloe was able to lose an incredible 30 lbs of excess weight. At this point, she became ‘hooked’ on the fitness lifestyle. Upon returning home, Chloe signed up for a gym membership and continued to train on her own.

Success in Women’s Physique Division

Chloe’s next goal is to win her IFBB Pro Card. With her incredible physique, she looks ready to achieve her goal, and much more.
Chloe trains like a bodybuilder, following a split-training routine that focuses on lifting heavy weights with a correct form. As she says; “I train like a bodybuilder, one part a day, heavy enough to have good form and a lot of drop sets.”
In regards to cardio, Chloe mixes it up between HIIT and light-intensity cardio. She’ll typically do a high-intensity cardio post workout, and light-paced cardio fasted in the morning.
Same Foods, Different Macros
Chloe doesn’t change her diet much when preparing for a contest. She’ll eat the same foods, but in different amounts. Here’s Chloe explaining the differences between her pre-contest and ‘off-season’ diet;
“Honestly, the foods don’t change at all. Really just the amounts. Unfortunately, I’m one of those people where I don’t need a lot of food. I’m always hungry.
I would say offseason I get up to 2200 cals or so. Prep we slowly cut back food and increase cardio. Genetically I put on muscle very easy. I’ll grow in prep as well.” – Chloe Sannito
High Carb vs Keto
Although a high-protein, low-carb diet gives great results to some athletes, it doesn’t work for Chloe.
She prefers eating a moderate protein and higher-carb diet to keep her muscles fueled for her workouts. But the carbs she consumes come only from the highest-quality sources. Such as sweet potatoes, basmati brown rice, and quinoa.
