FITNESS MODEL'S WEIGHT LOSS SECRETS


TURBO-CHARGE YOUR FAT-BURNING MACHINE!
Everyone I know hits a plateau every now and again, including me... Most everyone I know either fit, slim, over weight or feeling depressed needs a bit of a push to jump-start their fat-burning machine aka their metabolism.
When I have a photo shoot coming up and I don't feel camera ready I have to get my body fat down fast! To reach my weight loss goals within two weeks, which is usually lowering my body fat 3 to 5% I have to mentally prepare my winning game plan first.
My modeling weight loss secrets are actually not secrets at all... It all comes down to hard work in the gym, eating right and having a positive mental attitude. I begin by writing my short-term goals, making powerful success affirmations and creating a fitness plan to create rock hard abs and glutes - it all comes down to self mastery, willpower and discipline.
POWERFUL FUEL YOUR BODY NEEDS
Eating a healthy diet low in Glycemic Index always puts my metabolism in over-drive and will will for you too. I eat small meals every 3 hours consisting of lean protein, complex carbs (before noon), good fats (afternoon) and lots of fresh veggies and salads. My last meal is by 7 pm - ensuring that I go to bed feeling light and well nourished.
A healthy diet is critical to turbo-charge your metabolism. Here is a list of fat burning foods that when used in the right combination shown above will fuel your metabolism even without working out... Of course doing cardio and weight lifting 5 to 6 days a week will sky-rocket you to achieving weight loss success as well as build a sexy, lean physique!
