Tell us about yourself
My name is Logan LaCarte from North Bay Ontario, Canada. I’m 24 years old. I currently work in the construction/renovating field but I’m hoping to make the change into something fitness related soon. My goal is to help motivate people.
What made you decide to start your transformation?
As a kid I was always the biggest in the room, in elementary school I was bullied like most overweight kids. The older I got the more weight I put on and once I hit 310lbs I knew something had to change, I was miserable and I hated the person in the mirror. I felt trapped in my own body so I made the change. I’m currently 200lbs and continuing to lose weight.
How did you get started?
I started out with Weight Watchers but quickly made the change to counting calories as I realized I’d only put the weight back on once I got off Weight Watchers. I spent a lot of time on Google researching everything and anything I thought was useful to help me with my weight loss goal.
What supplements do you currently take?
Hows your diet?
Currently I’m on a cut to reach my final goal of 185lbs. I’m eating 1900 calories a day, I don’t track macros but I do keep an eye on my protein as well. I’m satisfied with 170-200 grams of protein per day.
What about your training?
When it comes to training I have a “home gym” which consists of a Bowflex and an elliptical. I lift 6 times a week and do cardio 6-7 times a week, my cardio times vary depending on the day but a minimum of 20 minutes high intensity is the goal.
How did you find JackedScholar.ca?
I found JackedScholar.ca on the internet looking for supplements in Canada.
What are some of your favourite gym tracks?
How has being fit changed your life?
Being fit has changed my life in a lot of ways: I'm more confident, happy and enjoy doing things I either thought I couldn't do or thought would be to challenging to do being obese. It's become my addiction but a good addiction.
What advice would you give to others who are looking to make a change?
My advice to anyone that’s looking to start their own journey is to not get caught up in someone else’s journey. Social media is a great platform for people such as myself to motivate people and lend advice but it’s easy for someone that’s just starting their journey to compare theirs to others and get discouraged. It’s important not to compare your first week to someone else’s first year.
