    I love that you included the importance of doing things for your animals because THEY need it.

  2. Abby Pollock on December 4, 2021 at 5:23 pm

    In case you missed it, I’ve linked Part 1 in the description box 🤗

    For reference – “doubling my calories” is based on the calories I shared in a previous video recreating my old bodybuilding routine.

    This was explained in Part 1 but the reason I used that time as a reference is because I haven’t done this extreme amount of activity since prepping for bodybuilding competitions. This is to show how much more I’d eat if I were fueling properly 🙌

  3. Carl Massop on December 4, 2021 at 5:26 pm

    Reminder of eating enough calories end resting more often hit me hard! Also the go go go mentality Abby I can relate and will make further adjustments in my routine….However my results have improved immensely for going extra hard and consistent. Keep inspiring! ❤️✌🏿

  4. Rick Dangerous on December 4, 2021 at 5:29 pm

    When for a new update body?

  5. Jeannie Telles on December 4, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    Love love love your channel i am currently filming my fitness journey . I’ve given myself one year to reach my goal and so far so good . THREE months left !!!

  6. afreckleislove on December 4, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    I thought it was only me, but I’m never hungry after a higher intensity workout, thanks for the valuable information!

  7. Clarisse on December 4, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    Hi Abby! Thanks for the great video. I’ve been watching for a few years. 💚 I’m one who’s afraid of more calories, and also feeling tired if I don’t feed my body enough. It a balance act. Keep up the great work. 💚

  8. cuzo victor on December 4, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    I’m gonna start a new routine now that my poor little toe has healed from getting smashed into a door lmao, and my body is still in recovery from an ED, so light exercising, walking and yoga/Pilates will be apart of it as well as including more fiber and fat into my diet. Since I’m gonna be eating more calories than I’m used to as post to an ED, I’m standing at about 95-100 lbs and 5’1, and my goal is only 5-10lbs since it looks like a lot more on me compared to people with a taller build lol. Thank you for your research!!! It’s helped me out a lot with mapping out my plan as you can see 🤗🤗🤗

  9. Aloha Miriam on December 4, 2021 at 5:33 pm

    You promoting the disordered idea of 3000 calories being too much for anyone just living and not exercising like crazy is enfuriating.

  10. justmedidi on December 4, 2021 at 5:33 pm

    what an intense week you had! i really appreciate your emphasis on listening to your body and doing what it best yourself. i know that i don’t listen to my own body these days. i either get so busy or i want to do other things so much that i push off eating, getting enough sleep, even drinking water sometimes etc. now i guess my signals are messed up and i have a hard time looking for them and acting upon them. it’s too bad i struggle to get the motivation to improve and be more consistent, feels like i’ve been stuck in this rut for ages now

  11. Hiya Kiah on December 4, 2021 at 5:34 pm

    Love the holistic explanation of not just WHY to eat 3000 cals, but HOW: nutrition is important.

  12. fitbeautyfun on December 4, 2021 at 5:34 pm

    Great video as usual!

  13. Sam Elle on December 4, 2021 at 5:37 pm

    wearing green makes your eye really pop and your hair look more vibrant!!

  14. Hanan Mariyam on December 4, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    I’m an indian and it’s hard to increase calories i have class and now offline class has started so i need to complete my workout and breakfast before 8:00 am and pack my lunch . I get back home after 5:30 so my daily calorie would probably 1300-1400 , I’m very active because i need walk a lote for class, after getting home i have to study and my life is discusting now 😂

  15. Alex Rodriguez Rojas on December 4, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Totally agree about giving yourself the time to rest. Physically/mentally!!!

  16. Claire Leitgen on December 4, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Love this!! I’d been toying with upping my calories ever since that video on metabolic damage and calculating the “right” amount of calories. I had never considered that maybe it would be easier to be more consistent at a deficit of 200 calories a day instead of 500, and prevent the weekend binge. Does it make me nervous? Yes of course. I have an office job and I’m still mostly working from home so my active lifestyle has taken a major hit. Summer was hot and smoky here so walks were out and put me in a bit of a downer mood for a while, which lead to more take out orders (lol). But! Now it’s clear again and my mind is finally clear enough to try to straighten out my true goals and intentions. Still nervous that my “post-pandemic” life doesn’t quite support the amount of food that I prefer to eat when I try to listen to hunger cues/new calorie target, but I’m trying to keep the faith!

  17. Katherine Doyle on December 4, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    100% get that same not-hungry feeling with high-intensity workouts! I look at it as a kind of superpower since I have friends who have struggled to lose weight because their workouts make them feel ravenous and they eat ALL THE THINGS afterward.

  18. Yuri vlog 유리 on December 4, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    When I get a notification that you have uploaded a video, my happy time begins 📸❣️🍊♥️🥳😘🥰🤩❤️

  19. JanisSmithe on December 4, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    Ugh….I said it the first time and will say it again – eating that amount of calories *healthily* (because who can’t pound back a box of doughnuts or pizza to that number) makes my stomach hurt. And eating first thing in the morning? *shudder* I start my first meal late naturally, waiting until I’m actually hungry, and usually stop eating around 5. I probably get around 2000 a day, and honestly it should be a little more, but my digestive issues hold me back too. Also it’s so crazy how different our bodies work and function. Fat gives me the least issues, followed by protein, and carbs sit in my gut like a brick. I feel you getting sick of eating. Bulking sounds like so much fun until you do it, and even in the beginning it is…but a week in of doing it – again, healthily – it’s a fucking slog.

  20. katelyn jordan on December 4, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    So I feel like a basically did this experiment with you by accident. I recently started running for the first time in my life and convinced myself to skip the beginning runner phase by going straight to 30-36miles a week. So then I was way undereatting so I ended up doing basically a 3000cal per day thing for about half a week and I felt good but also not good at the same time. I mentally felt more clear but my workouts felt sluggish- definitely somewhat of a digestive issue as well as some binge tendencies on the high carb foods. I also haven’t had a full rest day in over a month because I’ve convinced myself that I’m training my kind to overcome anything rather than my body…. So after weights at 4am this morning, I went to do a 4.5mile run and only got 2miles which is officially my first “bad” run and I called in sick to work 😅. Anyways, sorry for the little journal entry that I just made but I always enjoy your videos and your journey, Abby!

  21. Kiley Patrick on December 4, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    Have you ever been tested for fat malabsorption? I have similar digestion issues and after 25 years of trying to find an answer, my gi dr just checked my elastase levels and they are borderline low so now waiting for fat malabsorption test results.

  22. Aish 00 on December 4, 2021 at 5:46 pm

    Where did you get that white dressing gown?

  23. Jussi Myers on December 4, 2021 at 5:46 pm

    “People who wake up early go to bed early “ 😂 yeah, sometimes.

  24. Natalie Harrison on December 4, 2021 at 5:48 pm

    I’d love to get over the fear of eating more x

  25. Zahra on December 4, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    I don’t count calories every day anymore. The only time it ever worked for me, for weight loss, was in the beginning of my fitness journey. At the beginning, I was just getting into working out consistently, and hadn’t yet put on muscle. Once I put on muscle, my weight was up and not down. I was working out, for over a year, and calorie counting. I was always feeling beat up by my workouts, and not losing weight or getting smaller, but I was toning up. My weight stays around 160 and waist around 32 inches. I think the most important thing, like you said, is to eat the right things (mostly whole foods, few processed foods). If you’re not eating enough, it can hinder your progress

  26. Leslie Brightman on December 4, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    How did you get back to original weight so quickly?

  27. Kaaleen Joseph on December 4, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    Yes we cook! I’ve been using them for several months now. Personally I’ve found it changed the game for me

  28. Hannah Miles on December 4, 2021 at 5:53 pm

    Dobermann are very similar. 🙄 I have a very similar physic as you and I sometimes think I don’t eat enough good calories. This is going to be interesting 😊

  29. Keely Cooper on December 4, 2021 at 5:56 pm

    This just seems like a full on and exhausting schedule! I would also need 3,000+ calories! I want dogs so bad, they make adventures so worth it. No motivation required! Espeicially with 3….also random question…what mic do you use to film your videos? Looking into some equipment and tired of buying ones that don’t work. Especially during movement based videos. Thanks for all the hard work in showing us this routine (camera, lighting, ect) it is tough work!

  30. Amber Collins on December 4, 2021 at 5:56 pm

    Hey Abby, I noticed that when I run, it feels like my left foot hits the ground harder than my right foot. Do you know what causes this and how to correct it??

  31. laced michey on December 4, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    For a second I though she said 25,000 calories😂😂😂

  32. Gina Thresher on December 4, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    "Boss babed" to close to the sun. Lol 🤣 been there.

  33. ZiggyKick92 on December 4, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    Yup, green is definitely your color! Wowza! 😍💚💚💚💚💚

  34. June Nam on December 4, 2021 at 5:59 pm

    What the heck is wrong with some of these commenters? I naturally eat about 1500cal on avg per day and I don’t consider myself to have disordered eating. That’s what is intuitive for me. Why is anyone eating less than you considered ‘disordered’? Some people just don’t consume as many calories as you.

    Abby doubling her 1500cal to 3000cal is NOT promoting disordered eating. She is starting from a baseline that is natural to her. This was a very useful video for me.

  35. A on December 4, 2021 at 5:59 pm

    So you usually only eat 1500 calories a day? I’m starting to not trust your judgment 😐

  36. andrea gentry on December 4, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    This is where I am having trouble figuring out how much I should eat. Some days of course hungrier than others, but I am not sure whether I should go up or down. I am usually around 1600, but I don’t know. Need to figure it out. So glad I discovered your videos

  37. Yanique West on December 4, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    Long story short, people in the comments are ignorant and won’t allow themselves to be educated

  38. Janina Jasinska on December 4, 2021 at 6:02 pm

    Great motivation and education 🎉my excercise and eating journey not consistent at minute, working shift 9-10 h(4 pm up to 1 am at restaurant industry )burning about 500 kcl a night (trying excercise mid day after breekie (usually oats or some toast with marmite fresh fruit etc) still feeling exhausted and just tired 👀do I Eat enough or i just putting too much stress on my body?
    Thx x

  39. Jazmin Greyeyes-Howell on December 4, 2021 at 6:02 pm

    Could you do a video about one of your posts on Instagram? Like the sexualization of female fitness?

  40. Leslie on December 4, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    Did you and Keltie film a video together?

  41. məˈrɪsə ™ on December 4, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    Love how you brought in the pupp breaks, they’re a very real part of training Lol

  42. Aysan Yousefi on December 4, 2021 at 6:05 pm

    This was really cool,I’m experiencing so painful sorenesses these recent weeks n i wanna change my eating strategies dunno where to start

  43. Natalya Gaydarzhi on December 4, 2021 at 6:09 pm

    Here what happened to me: I was eating 1200-1400 calories for 3 months and I was gaining weight uncontrollably. Per trainer say I started eating 1800 calories I added even more weight 😫😤😭 now I’m stuck on 180 lbs at 5 ft height. Now you can imagine how I look like very overweight 😭😭😭 fighting with my husband over my weight to the point that we are ready to divorce after 24 years of marriage

  44. Michelle beebe lewis frith on December 4, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    If you lack the right amount of fat around your heart you could suffer a heart attack or die. Please keep this in mind.
    Love you alot. Please be safe. Hug’s

  45. Cynthia Martinez on December 4, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    I’ve started back running a month ago and it’s made me have an insatiable appetite especially the last two weeks. Did you have this problem when you started running? Hoping my hunger will level out soon. I haven’t restricted my calories but I’m starting to worry it will cause me to gain weight. I also lift weights 3-4x/week.

  46. Brianna O'Connell on December 4, 2021 at 6:16 pm

    Have you ever done a video about the effects of not working out for a week or two? I struggle with exercise addiction, and watching/hearing rational and scientific explanations on how the body does or doesn’t change after taking a small break is super helpful. I think you’d do the subject justice!

  47. Bianca on December 4, 2021 at 6:19 pm

    A bit random, but: do you adjust your eating or exercise while on your period? Or, just notice any changes in your appetite/energy level? I’ve recently found myself noticing somewhat of a pattern, and I’d be curious to know if there is any science to back cyclical changes in energy needs.

    Also, so excited to see all these videos you’ve been filming! Love the follow along exercise videos 🙂

  48. Beastbombshell on December 4, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    As an endurance athlete who runs 50 miles a week , lifts 2 to 4 hours 5 times week and bikes and runs . I eat 2700 normally and then more on long run or long bike days .. 118 pounds 5 foot .. 3000 doesn’t even sound crazy .. I ate 5000 2 days ago after a double marathon ( marathon on sat , sun ) … you need calories for workouts to perform and recover . You sound like you do know what your doing . Let the negative comments go , people really seem to just want to be negative in general .. it is hard to eat “ healthy “foods and do long runs .. I agree .. fiber and high fat just lead to potty issues during anything over 20 miles for me ..

  49. Carmen KS on December 4, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    Hey Abby! Long time follower here, I’ve noticed that I’ve been getting a lot of ads about a device called Lumen. It’s supposed to be a thing where you breathe into it and it tells you if you’ve had enough calories or not, would you be able to give your opinion about a device such as that? It seems kind of crazy to me that you would be able to breathe into something and it could tell you right away whether you’re getting enough nutrients or not, but what do I know. Anyway, thanks for the great video! I love how much you educate your audience.

  50. Kassie Procopio on December 4, 2021 at 6:21 pm

    Maybe a reminder to anyone making comments, keep it positive! She has shared her personal experiences with us and continue to be open about what she does and is willing to continue to post videos on topics that are for us (the viewers)! If you are here to bash or attack her video content maybe you shouldn’t be watching or watch her other videos to be better informed on her background and her experiences. There are a lot of fitness influencers that have been slowing or stopping their content due to mental health. Please be kind!
