Hello, I’m Meg!
I’m a Gold Coast native, personal trainer and flexible dieting enthusiast.
I enjoy challenging my mental and physical strength and after just placing first in my weight division at my first Powerlifting Australia meet, I have embarked on a bodybuilding competition prep this year.
I am passionate about helping everyday people embrace training and nutrition. My fondness for Bulk Nutrients developed years ago when I felt like I’d struck gold in my discovery of a supplement brand that worked well with my student budget. You’ll often find me preaching how simple it can be to better your lifestyle, and supplementation is just another gateway to making your health overhaul just that little bit easier.
My current favourite Bulk Nutrients products are the Nutty Delight Protein Matrix+ and Micellar Casein at night with Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal and blueberries!

My approach to nutrition
I love, love, LOVE flexible dieting (tracking macronutrients). It has completely transformed my relationship with food. It has my body running like a well-oiled machine. It allows me to enjoy whole foods and soul foods with a balanced approach. It does not feel restrictive, or like a ‘diet’.
When not in prep, I eat out 2-3 times a week because flexible dieting allows for eating out, unlike the rigidity of meal plans. I do see the benefit in meal plans for education and awareness, but I do believe everyone should have experience in flexible dieting.
My day on a plate
- Meal 1: Protein oats
- Meal 2: Arnott's biscuits
- Meal 3: Chicken burgers, potato, pumpkin and greens
- Meal 4: Zucchini slice and salad
- Meal 5: Chicken burrito bowl or vegetarian pasta
- Meal 6: Bulk casein custard, donut and berries
What is my average daily calorie intake? 1800-2600 calories
Foods I avoid... Eggplant (intolerant)
Foods I crave... Potato chips. I have no idea why. Hyper palatability?
My ultimate cheat meal is... My favourite meals to have when eating out are anything Asian, a big breakfast and pastries.
Do you have any medium/long term goals you're working towards?
Medium and long term goal is to achieve my best physique possible for my debut on the bodybuilding stage in Oct, 2020.
Long term I aim to continue to bulk up muscle mass while bringing down the bodyfat.
Have you had any exceptional results (in competitions or otherwise) in the last few years? Let us know what they are!
