I’m Meagan, a professional dancer, fitness addict, health hacker and lifestylist. Born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota I now call Los Angeles home. As a dancer, my body is my life, which is both a gracious blessing and grueling curse. Though I am lucky to be living out my childhood dream of being a professional dancer, me and my “I’m not an 18 year-old” body never know when that sudden job booking….. dancing in a white bikini on television…..phone call will come.* (*based on true events)
In situations like this, I went full 911 mode: fix crash diets, water pills, weigh my food, three-a-day workouts, hot yoga challenges, etc… This always led to a larger problem, I would end up looking terrible, tired and having no energy to do the job I was hired to do. The job that I call my profession and that is solely based on the body’s performance and beauty.
I now can consider these hardcore yo-yo diet and exercise years, research. I’ve learned what aspects of each extreme method my body and brain respond to. I’ve taken these bits of information and wove them into a manageable, Meagan Kong way of living. I am here to share with you what I eat and how I move so maybe #youkongdoit too.
