Hugo Chavez has lost 20 kg (or 44 pounds) with a more active lifestyle and watching what he eats.
His own success has encouraged him to call upon his country’s people follow in his footsteps of healthy eating and weight loss.
A leader that cares about how unhealthy you maybe or how obese you have become is a good leader.
YouTube user Vanessa loses 32 pounds with meal replacements shakes. She created a video with picture of her at 137 lbs, and the final result at 116 lbs. She has since provided an update to the video description saying that she is now at 105 lbs.
Britney Spears is back in the spot light with a slimmer and healthier body. Over the summer months, she changed her diet to friendly protein and plenty of vegetables. Sticking to chicken is her choice for proteins while shying away from bacon, eggs, and beef. This means also removing all the fatty skins from the chicken, and patting off all the grease before eating. Watch the oil and grease consumption very carefully.
If you were to smudge fingers across your forehead, would you lick the greasy film on your finger? If no, then when you come across a slice of pizza with dripping oil, don’t eat it and opt for something else.
As for soups, Britney Spears has gone clear. Skim off all the oils if they float to the top. No more creamy soups loaded with cheese, potatoes, or carbohydrates.
When having vegetables, stick to the color green.
The only sweet thing in her desserts are fresh fruit. No more cakes and cookies for the new Britney Spears.
Congrats to Britney, who’s realized that watching everything we eat is as important as being active to stay fit and trim.
You are what you eat has many truths. Jessica Alba is a great example of what can be achieved with sensible meal plans and regular exercise.
- Breakfast: oatmeal with berries, and eggs
- Lunch: salad with chicken breast or fish
- Dinner: sushi, or beef, or lean protein
- Snacks: almonds or popcorn
The key is portion control to about 400 calories or less.
If you try this at an all-you-can-eat-buffet, then you have already failed.
Working with a personal trainer, Mandisa managed to lose 80 pounds of weight and hopes to lose up to 100 lbs or more. Along with regular exercise 3-4 times a week, she has completely cut out processed foods including white flour and sugars. Her salt intake is limited also.
Instead of opting for boring exercise routines, Mandisa chooses to enjoy the weight loss process with Zumba dancing. (We too are believers in the greatness of Richard Simmons.)
