I had a blast attending the Los Angeles FitExpo this past week, Feb. 7-8, 2015. I was able to meet a lot of fun and exciting fitness experts who shared some of their top secrets to success.
I spent the first day, Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015, improving my culinary skills. I participated in cooking classes taught by celebrity chefs, athletes and fitness experts/models. They took me step-by-step through some tasty and healthy recipes. Their main focus was “how to include 50+ grams of protein in a meal. It smelled delightful in this chef’s kitchen and the samples tasted outstanding.
Chef Patrick Stark
Chef Stark prepared a delicious Vegan Curried Vegetable meal that contained 50+ grams of protein. His secret to adding 50+ grams of protein involved adding vanilla whey protein to his curry milk sauce and pouring it over his veggies and brown rice. This was a spicy and delightfully seasoned vegan/vegetarian meal.
Dymatize Protein Athletes were hosting and preparing delicious 50+grams of protein meals as well. They prepared a curry chicken meal and protein pancakes.
What a delight to see handsome and fit men cooking in the kitchen ;).
I also received a ton of free samples to try out. All were very good. One of my favs was Oxygen magazine. The fitness models of Oxygen were handing out free issues (Score!). I received lots of backpacks and T-shirts as well.
On Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015, I had the pleasure of meeting the beautiful and oh so sweet Follow the Lita! Lita is a Physical and Spiritual Motivator Ambassador/fitness expert/trainer/fitness model and my daily inspiration. She is such a happy and friendly person. She prepared Turkey Burger Patties. She included olives and sun dried tomatoes. I’ll have to try that with my TVP mix (texturized vegetable protein) the next time I make homemade veggie patties.
I’m such a fan of Lita! Isn’t she gorgeous? Her figure is to die for as well.
I also attended an amazing presentation by Dr. Levi Harrison, M.D. I cannot begin to tell you how much I learned from this man. I will be dedicating an entire blog to review his book, “The Art of Fitness” and his DVD, “The Art of Fitness (Cardio Core Workout). So look out for this blog post because the book and DVD are phenomenal! He is a dynamic speaker, caring motivator and incredibly cute!
I so enjoyed my time at the LA FitExpo. I will be attending another in August 2015. I’m so excited.
Peace and Love

Love it! Glad you had fun!! Looks like a fun group of fit folks!
Now I’m really jealous! lol. I’ve never been to the LA Fit Expo before, but hopefully next year when I’m back in LA. Once upon a time I competed in a couple fitness competitions, and I have been saying for the longest I want to do another one so I would have loved all that motivation.
Wow, you are a fitness competitor that sounds awesome. There is another expo coming up in August in Anaheim. If you happen to return to the states you might be able to check it out. They are so much fun and highly motivating.
