On my journey to bikini comp I had the importance of meal prep and hitting macros drilled into me since day one of our transformation journey. Preparing your meals for the day is important as it helps you manage the amount of macro-nutrients: (proteins, carbohydrates and fats) you are eating in order to enable you to reach your fitness goals.

The smile is one of the first things you notice when you look at somebody. It is often one of the main traits we look for in a partner also, those white gleaming knashers and Hollywood smiles are definitely something to be envied, but how accessible are they to us? The bikini girls find out...

Deni Kirkova wins first place at Miss Galaxy Universe 2016 Having a body that's in good enough shape to win Miss Galaxy Universe is a dream many women may have. But how difficult is it? [caption id="attachment_448" align="alignnone" width="4000"] Deni Kirkova on stage at Miss Galaxy Universe (by Lowell M. / Galaxy Universe Organisation)[/caption] My best friend Vicky and I gave ourselves just 20 weeks to get into the shape of our lives before entering a prestigious fitness competition - the Miss Galaxy Universe European Championships 2016. As well as five training sessions a week, we led a vegan diet, eating tofu, pulses, quinoa and oats and banning all meat and animal products. I'd been an ethical vegan for a year so this didn't bother me at all. I lost 20lbs, going from 10st to 8st 9lbs and taking four inches off my waist - and came away with first place in the Beach Body category at the O2 in London. [caption id="attachment_456" align="alignnone" width="4000"] Deni Kirkova wins on stage at Miss Galaxy Universe (by Lowell M. / Galaxy Universe Organisation)[/caption] I was by no standard overweight. But going from a regular-sized woman who works out when she wants and eats what she likes, to the discipline needed to become a ripped bikini competitor seemed daunting at first. I wasn't focused on winning, but just on working really hard to get results - so the fact that I did win was a huge shock; you could see it on my face! Once I was on board, I had to commit 100 per cent to competing in Miss Galaxy and having Vicky on board with me helped keep me focused.
