Anllela working out
Anllela Sagra was born and raised in Colombia. She became passionate about fitness and started going to the gym when she was 18 years old.
She aspired to be a model while studying fashion design. Several peers told her that gaining muscle mass would ruin any hope of a modeling career, Anllela decided to commit full-time to fitness and finished in third place in her first competition.
Anllela decided to pursue becoming Colombia's first fitness model.
She quickly started to build a following on Instagram and worked with photographers such as Ohrangutang. As part of her hustle, Anllela is sponsored by 1UP Nutrition and offers workout plans to clients. As of March 2018, Anllela has over 10 million followers on Instagram.

Allela Sagra eats four meals a day at regular time intervals.
She has a source of protein in every meal to rebuild and gain muscle.
In addition, she cycles her carbs throughout the week.
She eats zero carbs on the first day of the week, which creates a carbohydrate deficit in your body and it will have to use stored fat as a source of fuel; the second day is a low-carb day and then she eats as many carbs as she wants for the third day.
Sagra also includes four cheat days per month in her diet.
Meals on these days usually consist of a burger, french fries, cheesecake, and peanuts; she says this is enough for her to satisfy all her cravings.
