Laura Carson is a 47 year-old wife, mother and software executive that decided to transform herself and her life in July 2013. Laura had always struggled with her weight - former anorexic and sugar addict. Laura transformed by overhauling her nutrition and starting a weight-lifting regimen. She followed macro-based nutrition and focused on eating a balance of protein, carbs and fat every day. To motivate herself, Laura set a goal to compete in her first bikini competition at the age of 45. Laura lost 38lbs in 10 months and stepped on the stage for the first time in May 2014. Since then, Laura has kept the weight off, continues with her new nutrition, continued to build muscle by lifting heavy and competed in two additional competitions including a 2nd place Masters Tall Placement and a 5th Place Open Tall Placement. Laura’s transformation has been featured in bodybuilding.com, Oxygen Magazine, Strong Magazine and soon to be featured in the March version of Train Magazine. She also helps other woman over 40 reach their goals via her program 40SomethingFitness.
