Question: 
Victoria, I have a round thick waistline and I would like to lose some fat and reshape it. What should I do? 
- Aisha,


Answer: Great question. Healthier hourglass figures are in and you don’t have to starve to have a skinny waist and sculpted hips, shoulders and flat abs anymore. Please take ten minutes and read through tis entire post. It may be one of the most important ones I have ever shared. It literally saved my life. I was so unhealthy, bloated, gassy and unhealthy. This information turned it all around for me. I hope it helps you too.

Figure-hugging fashion is so sexy and fun to wear. It’s not very pleasing when you put on a hot outfit and you look like a big round egg. 

When I was obese, I hated being bloated, puffy and hiding under blousy tops. Lol!

You’re Not Alone, Lean Legs and Toned Thighs are on everybody’s mind!

YEAH to Shape Magazine for doing an article like my Thin Thighs Program.

I picked up a magazine and it had an article about dressing for your age. R U kidding me? It said not to wear a mini skirt after a certain age.  Maybe in your grandmama’s day, not now!

Who cares what the fashion magazines say about dressing for their advertisers who try to dictate how you look and what you wear. You can wear anything you want if you have the body for it.

Life is too short to follow worn out rules like that. You are here to wake up the world about what is possible and be a model for greatness.

Laidies..spelling!! Have fun, enjoy life, dance every day and wear what makes you happy! People get so crazy about misspelled words and lipstick on their teeth. CHILL, when we get too serious, we miss the simple joy and playfulness of being alive.

You can look great in a mini skirt at any age as long as you have the glam hams, style, and confidence to carry it off.

It all depends on how hard you want to work to get the body that will enable you to carry off that mini skirt after adolescence,  just be sure you have a good anti cellulite treatment .

Detox-Best Cellulite Cream

Awesome Anti-Cellulite Topical Fat Burning Cream

I personally love to have my clients do and do a few slimming wraps at home.

By eating healthy, staying hydrated, detoxing and doing the right exercise while practicing good posture you can look super fine.  You also must the doing the moves that give you the right shape.  Not every move does that. Some moves make you blocky, thick or stumpy looking.  But when doing good lengthening and firming moves, you can tighten and tone your lower body pretty quickly. If you train with a good well-rounded program you can be Mini Skirt ready after  a few weeks.

Let’s get to work so you have super looking thighs, so here it is.

 

Reverse Alt Lunges.jpg

Alternating Reverse Lunge

 

One of the best thigh exercises that you can perform is a reverse lunge. You have probably seen many variations of the lunge. All lunge moves work. So if you have your favorite one, please do that. but I really prefer a reverse lunge. It’s like the forward lunge, strengthens your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves but not allow your knees to extend beyond your toes. Ig you have bad knees, do not do this exercise, see your physical therapist for an alternative.

It is one of the toughest, but most effective and safest for the knees. It’s like the normal lunge, but instead of performing the exercise from a stationary standing position and then you step backward instead of forward  maintaining  correct spine alignment at all times.

Alternating Reverse Lunges

You can do it with a bar resting on your trapezius; holding dumbells or no weight at all.

  • Start in a standing position with a bar resting on your traps, a set of light to medium dumb bells in your hands or with  Your on your hips or hanging at your sides. Keep you head in alignment with your spine, your chest up, with your feet shoulder-width apart. This will be your starting position.houlders over your hips, and chest up.
  • Begin the movement by taking a step to the rear behind you, allowing your hips and knees to flex to lower your body. Your weight should transfer to the ball of the foot until your knee nearly touches the ground or to a level that feels safe for you. hold it one count then press off the floor with that foot and return to starting position. When moving, always use slow and controlled movement, paying close attention to proper mechanics and posture. The knee should stay in line with the foot, contract your core muscles to help with balance, endurance, alignment, and control. Do not lean forward or backward, keep your shoulders over your hips.
  • After holding for one to two counts, return to the starting position by driving through the heel of the front leg to extend the knees and hips.

This movement can be done completely on one side before switching or can be performed in an alternating fashion.

 Lunge Training Frequency: Do 20 repetitions of this exercise per set on each side. Repeat until you’ve completed 3 sets.
 Make sure you warm up and stretch before and be sure to stretch after too.

You should start seeing and feeling results in as little as two weeks if yo clean up your diet and go low carb and replace unhealthy snacks with Matcha Tea Green smoothies.  

 

Lunges For Sexy Legs and Round Butt

Sexy Legs and Round Butt Requires Training and Fat Burning Diet

Work up to 3 sets 3 days a week for 5 to 6 weeks. For faster results, increase the number of sets/times per week. Make sure you are also doing pure fat burning cardio 4-5 times per week too. Not only will you lose fat, tighten up your lower body, but you will be saving your life and increasing your mental health with the endorphins rush!

Proper Technique

Reminder: Be careful and make sure that your knee stays over your ankle and is not going over your toes. When pushing off with the front leg, push through the heel.
Walking Lunges are a great variation on the standard lunges. They give you a longer range of motion, plus they lengthen as well as strengthen the thigh muscles.

Lunges are classic and proven to tighten and tone your legs so that will have perfect traffic stopping and ladies gossiping thighs for your hot mini skirt.

DIY Lose Weight Fast & Drop Inches Safely At Home

If you are overweight, larger than you want to be and have cellulite, sometimes it feels impossible to lose weight and get rid of the lumps and bumps cellulite creates.

Cellulite is formed when fat cells become isolated from blood and lymphatic circulation and takes a boat -load of exercise, dieting and sometimes even surgery before it can be eliminated from your body.

I totally understand this entire trauma drama situation. When I was sixty plus pounds heavier, I had more lumps than an old mattress. I was miserable. I wanted to wear fun clothes, run on the beach and wear tight leggings, but I didn’t because I was too self-conscious. I know..I know; “love yourself accept your size, you are beautiful no matter how much junk you have in your trunk”! LOL.   All the psychobabble BS that people said to me when I was fat did not help me one bit. I still went home, hid in my room and binged on self-sedating sugary junk.

Fat is Dangerous

Fat contains toxins that are poisonous and combine that with a low immune system, it becomes almost deadly. When I was overweight, binging on ridiculous amounts of low nutrition foods, I got a life threatening case of chronic fatigue. It was so bad it that I started to get symptoms of Fibromyalgia. Mind you, I was only in middle school and was having the sicknesses of middle years women. My body was a metabolic mess. I did eventually work my way out of it by going through a serious detox and cleanse, changing my diet, getting more focused on positive goals and finding a mentor to help me set some goals and make a plan for my life. I even joined a networking group that met every week to keep my head in the right space for success!

Fat is Toxic

I want the same for you. I want you to rule your life with power and purpose. You can’t do it if you are fatigued, unmotivated and hiding under clothes. It’s time to break out and live life with total freedom. Fat hides who you really are. Excess subcutaneous fat is not just unsightly and it’s downright unhealthy. Excess body fat is a sign, it’s a visible alarm that’s sending you the signal that your body is not processing calories efficiently and that you’re developing toxicity in your organs. You are creating a minefield of issues that can start in your liver, thyroid, pancreas, bladder and the veins and arteries that are feeding your heart. And consider this, your SKIN is the largest organ in your body.

To remedy this, it’s important to provide the body with detoxing and metabolic enhancing elements that help you release the toxins and expel them through sweat and urine, improve circulation, stimulate the fat burning and increase the release of fatty acids from the dimpled stores.

5-Tips-to-Tighten-Loose-Skin

Tighten Loose Skin While You Lose Weight

It’s so important to get the toxins out and heal your organs and make your body healthier. I had to make a quick trip to South Beach Florida, USA to see a client. It’s very scary listening to the medical issues surrounding the Zika Virus outbreak in Miami. While there I made sure I was careful and used organic repellant. Plus I made sure I kept hydrated, drank my probiotic tea to help keep my immune system strong and work kept my skin exposure to a minimum which is almost next to impossible in South Beach!
DIY Home Body Wraps are so much cheaper and work great.

Best Cellulite Cream

Lose Weight Fast At Home Anti Cellulite Body Wrap

You can use your own formula that you have created and love. We do them with our clients using our own Extreme Slimming Cream.

It has been shown to be one of the most effective, DIY Home methods for weight-loss, skin tightening and body contouring. Our natural mixture of the perfect ingredients is not only designed to detox your skin, help you lose inches for a special occasion, reduce stored fluid retention which is made worse by excess fat; it is also designed to stimulate new collagen growth, improve skin texture over time and discourage further accumulation of cellulite after each use. That is what helps make your skin tighter, more resilient and firmer. Plus the detoxification of your cells can help to make you healthier.

1) Get Serious – Make a commitment to honor your body by purifying and cleansing it of toxins, waste and damaging poisons.

  1. Decide that you are going to do a Body Wrap to help kick start your body into a good detox to help you get motivated by seeing an immediate inch loss. It will not be permanent unless you continue cleansing with Green Smoothies after your body wraps. You can get the guide here!
  2. Write it down on a calendar someplace you will see it so that you can get mentally and physically ready.
  3. Write out the reason and the goal of your wrap.

2) Get Equipped – Get your wrap materials together and get organized before you start. It is shown that when you are organized, you feel better and are more committed to the process.

  1. You need a dry brush – always dry brush your skin before you put on the cream or your won solutions
  2. Saran wrap – You want good clingy wrap that helps the solution activate faster.
  3. Waist Trainer, Cincher or compression garment– This will help you shrink your waist and other body parts.
  4. Tape Measure. Measure before and after to help assure you are doing it correctly.
  5. Extreme Slimming Gel or other solution you plan to use.

Lightweight cotton garments to wear while you are wrapped. Do not cover your head while you are wrapped, it could cause you to over heat. You can wear clothing with your wrap, but do not wear anything that could hinder your ability to move. Do exceed an hour of being HOT! Make sure if you wear it long term (overnight), you don’t cover your entire body all at once. If you decide to wear a wrap overnight, just do one body part and make sure you are comfortable, can breathe and have water so you can stay hydrated.

WARNING: But do not do this in a sauna longer than the standard 15-minute warning on most saunas.

3) Fluid – Drink up To Flush It Out

  1. Prepare and have available, lemon water or other Low Glycemic Fruit Infused Water For Drinking. Take 2 lemons and cut up and put into a gallon of filtered or distilled water. Add stevia if you need some sweetness
  2. Drink before, during and after your wrap to help facilitate the detox and continue releasing excess toxins. Plus this helps to rehydrate skin so that it won’t get wrinkly and creepy.

4) Rest – Relax and Chill.

  1. Once you are wrapped, do not over exert yourself with activities that could cause you to overheat.
  2. Put on some music that makes you feel good. Your mental state is vital to help you stay calm and allow the wrap to work.
  3. Body Shaping. I like to have my clients do periodic isometric exercises where the body is wrapped. They are committed to getting a tighter waist or sculpted looking body parts. They wear their waist trainer or cincher after they put on the Extreme slimming Cream. Then do isometric abdominal and core exercises that help flatten the abdomen and flexing their arms and legs to create a more toned appearance.

5) Diet – Eat healthy, natural low carb foods.

  1. Eat a clean healthy, no sugar no refined foods, no canned foods or high salt meals. Stay with green smoothies, high fiber vegetables, broths, home made soups that are lighter for the first day to assist in digestion and detoxification.
  2. Drink before, during and after your wrap to help facilitate the detox and flushing of the excess toxins. This process not only helps you look better, it is helping you be healthier.
  3. Probiotic Detox Weight Loss Tea – You can also use a probiotic detox weight loss tea. The tea is shown to help your entire digestive system reboot as you detox and the benefits are amazing. It helps you get a healthy digestive tract. Once you get the toxins released into your system, it is crucial to get t flushed out so that it doesn’t collect in your colon and create more health issues. Read more about the Probiotic Tea. Even if you don’t want it now, bookmark the page so that you can prepare your body’s immune system to become stronger. There’s an amazing medical article about women and Probiotics you should read after this post. This statement says it all! “Probiotics for women’s health has a huge future,” said Krystal Thomas-White, a PhD candidate working with Professor Alan Wolfe, Professor in Microbiology & Immunology at Loyola University Chicago Urinary Education & Research Collaborative. “It needs to be the future.”  Read the article here.

Extreme Slimming Cream – Up to Ten Body Wraps in One Jar!

Here’s our Exclusive Model Series (like your body naked) Slimming Cream. There are some really effective active ingredients that are fat busting powerhouses along with aloe that penetrates through the protein wall that surrounds the fat cell to help facilitate the release of heavy toxins into the lymphatic system where it can be flushed away by drinking healthy amounts of water. We sell out fast, so get yours today!

We have aloe and skin rejuvenating nutrients in our cream that help restore elasticity and firms skin tissue, leaving it, firmer more soft and sexy. The fat releasing product stays in the body for up to three days depending on how much water you drink, how much you exercise and how clean you keep your diet, allowing for continued size loss to occur as you continue to detox and cleanse. My clients and models typically drink 3-4 liters of water daily. They do their slimming body wraps as a series of seven or ten treatments, spaced 3-5 days apart. They have so many benefits such as detoxification, cleansing and rejuvenating.

Bonus Step: Firm & Lift

Best Retinol Cream Moisturizer

Victoria’s Personal Diet & Training Program

My Workout and Diet

Victoria Johnson Celebrity Fitness Professional Trainer

Victoria Johnson Fitness Celebrity Professional Trainer

This is an idea of how I eat and train. This is my schedule when I am not on a set, at a rehearsal, working with a client or doing interviews and skype training.

First off, thank you for the great feedback! I got an email asking for my personal daily diet and workout.

First of all, I get up when I wake up. I don’t use an alarm. I sleep between 6 to 8 hours a night. Everybody is different and I go with my body’s natural clock.

I had a green smoothie and skinny tea then headed out the door.
I went to my chiropractor, Dr. S and I was a structural mess! He said my C-2&3 were out. I had one arm longer than the other. My T-5&6 were out and my right ribcage was out of alignment and my sacrum was also out of alignment. I went because i had pain in my knee, my traps were stuck around my ears from tension and my Psoas was hurting. I have been going to a Chiro for most of my adult life. It structurally aligned. If your car is out of alignment, you don’t just buy new tires, you get the alignment fixed. That’s how I look at my spinal alignment.

By Wednesday, my knee will stop hurting, my arms will be the same length which will help me with my weight lifting. When I trained on Saturday, one arm was stronger than the other. The adjustment will even everything back out.

Okay here’s my food and training schedule:

I am very disciplined and I like to follow a regular schedule. I am the type of person who knows that I cannot function in chaos and disorder. I have to set myself up to succeed. I have to surround myself With positive people and an atmosphere that creates good vibes. I only buy food that serves my body and my purposes. I use to allow other people to lead me to overeat, stress out abandon my desire for a fit body.

I get up between 7:00 -8 AM.
I take my favorite liquid vitamin drink mixed with 4 oz. of Sobe Lean diet peach drink. I let the digestion happen for about thirty minutes while I wonder around the house speaking positive and powerful affirmations about how awesome my day is going to be. I speak my day before it happens. I believe that what you think about comes about, so I speak awesome prophecies about my day and the people I am going to meet and work with.

7:30-8:30 I make an Amino Charge protein shake with secret ingredients that boost my metabolism, increases my brainpower, balances my blood sugar, increases my energy plus it contains secret anti-cellulite ingredients. Here are the base ingredients..secret not listed.

Second Breakfast Tight Booty Shake:Body Balance Liquid vitamins, sugar-free flavoring, wheat grass, green vibrance powder, amino charge, tea powder, OsteoProcare for joints and calcium.

Vibrant Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder

Healthy Vibrant Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder

Green Tea Powder

It is a scientific breakthrough formula that I created. Sorry, it is not for sale! And YES it works.  I have amazing energy, good muscle tone, great skin and mentally clear thinking.

3rd Meal
I eat an egg white omelet with veggies and three vegetarian sausages. Six egg whites and 2 yolks with a tablespoon of coconut oil.

While I make my food I listen to a positive uplifting message, then I watch a muscle training DVD to get inspired to train, then I listen to educational material or something educational on the way to the gym. I love to learn and I love to learn and I love to eat, so I do both in a healthy and positive manner.

Train on my Gym Days
I do some form or movement every morning except Sunday. I take a dance class. I practice Hip Hop, Step Jamm, Lyrical Jazz, and Other forms of Aerobic Dance that keep me fit,  flexible, sharp and sexy. After that, I do some form of cardio for 45 minutes. I do step mill, trekker uphill, stationary bike or treadmill. This is on the three days when I train at night.

Wednesdays-Fridays-Saturdays
12:00- 3:00 Vertical Training Private class

Monday-Tuesday-Thursday
1:00 Lunch on Gym Workout days
I have stir fry vegetables and chicken and beef combination every day with ½ cup of rice. Bowl of fruit ½ hour later. I will also have a gigantic salad with fresh tuna on days when I want a break from the stir fry.

I drink six quarts of water every single day of the week.

4:00 Green drink smoothie just like I have for breakfast on my Gym days
4:00 Lunch on my 3-hour marathon class days

5:00 Gym for my evening workout 3 days per week.

7:00 Dinner
Large Salad
Grilled meat – 4 oz. Beef or Chicken 2 times per week. 6 oz. Fish with vegetables the other five days of the week. I do not eat shellfish or pork.
TODAY’S WORKOUT:
3 sets of 20 Ab Rope Curls @60lbs on the pulley machine
3 sets of 20 Standing Lateral Leg Lifts @20lbs per leg
4 sets of Flat Bench Dumbell Press with combined with crunches – feet up on bench to maximize curl effect (had to lay next to a guy who was wearing more jewelry than me….I hate it when that happens).
Also….Ladies, get your buns into the gym, there were exaclty 35 men training in the section of the Super Gym I was training in tonight. There were two other women besides me and they both had trainers. One lady had a trainer who was MORE OVERWEIGHT than her and the other had a guy that she was arguing about over technique. He was checking out the other guys while he was training her and not helping her with her form and she got pissed off…rightly so!

4 Sets of 8 Lat Pulldowns @75lbs. Dr. S said I need to strech my lats more and strech my spine out. I am so good about being obedient and following directions. I did it tonight because I don’t want to ever look like an old lady with hunch back.. aaaahhh!

Next I did Wide Grip Pullups – 3 sets of 5
Then I just stretched and people watched. I only had two shadows tonight. Those are people who treat me as their star sighting and they follow me around and giggle and do everything I do. i don’t blame them. It’s flattering, plus I use perfect form, i smile, i have jamming music on, today’s music was Fergie’s “Glamorous” updated bass electronic remix. That was the vibe I wanted to express today as I moved around the gym and around the planet. I love being a girl. It’s so much fun and we are made so perfect!

That was my workout and now I am going to try on three of the hottest tightest tops i could find and still breathe and finish my day strutting around to Fergilicious “Delicious”!

Peace and Blessings to you all!

HOW DO I GET SKINNY THIGHS

SEXY IS THE NEW SKINNY

Question from reader..

Hi Victoria,

I have been on a body-shaping plan for six weeks now and I have plateaued. Someone said I might need to be drinking more water now, since it has been warmer than usual.  What do you think, could that really help me lose more body fat and gain muscle too.  J.

My Friends and J.

This is such a timely question.  Recently I had someone overheat in a workout due to dehydration.  So thank you for your question, this is the perfect time to address water and it’s importance to our bodies.

Drink More, Lose Fat to Weigh Less and Increase Brain Power and Be Unstoppable!  When I fist started dieting, I was a mess. I would do everything I could think of to lose weight but I never drank enough water for my personal metabolic rate and optimum biological state, so I wasn’t losing weight as quickly as I thought I should. I worked out like a maniac. I even cut back on calories and got so light headed I could hardly drive.

In my craziness, I received a great revelation! I was starving my body and dehydrating it so bad, that it was holding on for dear life.  I like to think of it as lack and scarcity conditioning. When you hold on to the things you think you don’t have enough of, you shut down the flow. You stop the  progress and everything comes to a stand still and your mental capacity becomes blocked.

Once I got over my fear of weighing too much and started to increase my proper food and water intake to four solid quarts a day, I started to drop inches and lose weight too!

In other words, when I stopped moving in fear and started ingesting more water, my body felt free to eliminate the excess fluid and my weight went down. One week I even lost five pounds by increasing my water intake along with my plan.

I was doing an hour of cardio, following my perfect low-glycemic diet, monitoring simple carbohydrates, getting 8 hours of sleep at night and not eating meals after 7:00 PM. I would go to bed at 11:00 PM and get up at 7:00 AM.

If you are not drinking enough water, your body can become deficiently hydrated, known as dehydration, and can manifest in a variety of ways that wreak havoc on your health and your beautiful body. Ongoing dehydration may cause actual disease as the body struggles to maintain itself without sufficient fluid intake.

Dehydration can also lead to stored excess body fat, cellulite formation, flabby muscles, poor muscle tone, muscle loss, decreased digestion and organ function, bloating, PMS and water retention. Now that should be enough right there to make you run in the bathroom and jump in the shower and stand under the spout for five minutes!

Not drinking enough water can also leads to increased toxicity, joint and muscle soreness, slow recovery time after exercise, injury or surgery. Water works to keep muscles and skin tight and youthful (hallelujah). If you are not losing weight as fast as you would like to and want a quick start to losing weight and healing your body, drink up! Live It Up!   

Water is not just a weight loss inducer, and muscle enhancer; it is essential to for life and necessary for life itself. Water is a fundamental factor in our health. It is fundamental to our total existence. It is so easily overlooked each day because there is such an abundance of it. We wash our clothes in it, we brush our teeth with it, we watch it flow into the sink and wind it’s way down the drain while we are washing dishes. After a warm relaxing bath, gallons of this natural healing agent drain away only to be repeated tomorrow.

Every single cell in your body requires water. Our human survival is dependent on water. It is been classified by scientists as second only to oxygen as necessary for sustaining life. On average, the quantity of water in an adult body could fill 12 one-gallon containers. That means as an average adult your body is somewhere between 55 to 75% water. Up to 2/3 of your body weight is water, 40 to 50 quarts. Your body is made up of water, other mass such as bone & tissue and matter. Jack and the rest of you magnificent beings, you basically are water.

WATER IS LIFE

SO…..EAT, TRAIN DRINK and REPEAT!

Eart drink

CONSUME FREELY! Therefore, you need to consume approximately 2/12 Qts of water daily to be healthy and metabolically cleansed. Since such a large percentage of our bodies are water, it stands to reason why our health and our bodily functions depend on it. Every process in your body uses water as a catalyst. We can exist without food for up to 2 weeks or more, but we can only survive for a few days without water.

HIGH PERFORMANCE!  I teach all of my high performance clients that I believe it is the single most important nutrient to take in every day. It is calorie free, it’s fat–free and it helps you feel full. Many of us mistake thirst for hunger. When you are sitting around and thoughtlessly jump up to grab a snack, have a glass of water first. Wait five minutes to see if the hunger goes away. In the meantime, keep busy, don’t focus on a snack, focus on the healing effects of the water you just offered your metabolism.

STOP! Buying sodas and expensive coffee drinks for you and your children. They can actually prevent you from losing weight if you drink them instead of water.  Coffee contains caffeine and too much of it can dehydrate you, especially if you live in a warm climate. Stop drinking wine before dinner. It stimulates your appetite and can send you into a low blood sugar state, which can make you irritable, or it can drive you to eat more than you ordinarily would. Ordering sodas at fast food restaurants just because they are cheap or they come with the meal. There is no such thing as free food. There is a price you will be paying later either in poor health, weight gain or low blood sugar anxiety.  So stop teaching your children to drink sugary drinks with their meal, it’s running their health.

How Much? When you are working out and leading an active lifestyle, you need a minimum of 8, 8 ounce glasses a day every single day, seven days per week, 4 weeks per month, 12 months out of the year! Get it?? Your body deserves the best fuel at all times. It is your gift to life in our human form. Let’s honor it and care for it with wisdom, knowledge and understanding. The more you exercise beyond sixty minutes per day, the more water you need.

Spread your water intake throughout the entire  day, especially on hot days and the day before you are going to participate in a heavy-duty workout.  When you begin your fluid for life commitment, you will be visiting the restroom more frequently. That’s perfect! You are supposed to go more frequently, this facilitates your body’s flushing, detoxing and cleansing process. Every time you go, you get rid of extra toxic weight and unhealthy substances that your body does not need. How cool is that?   Be patient, it takes about two weeks for your bladder to adjust to the new intake.

Drinking Tips  Tips on water intake help you lose more weight quicker: Drink clean bottled or filtered water Drink a minimum of 64 ounces per day (2 quarts) Drink an additional 8 ounces per day for every 25 pounds over your ideal healthy weight.

Keep a water bottle or your designated water-drinking cup in visible sight in all areas of your life. Make sure there is one in the kitchen, one at your desk or workspace, one in your car and one in your gym bag. If they are out of sight, they are out of mind.

Personally, I have three distinct water bottles and cups that I use. Right now I have a beautiful 16-ounce crystal blue thermal glass that I have sitting by my computer. I drink one per hour. Each day I write for three hours. If I write longer, I drink more. I also have an elegant crystal pitcher of water with shaped cubes in it that I keep on another table that I use to fill up my thermal glass with. I track the number of ounces I drink per day in my food journal.

I also keep an extra water bottle in my workout bag or make sure I keep enough money on me so that I can buy a bottle at the gym. I have two one-quart water bottles in the trunk of my car most times next to my emergency kit. I don’t want to mess up my diet and my health due to a lack of preparation. I am sure you can think of at least ten more ways to make your water consumption more practical and easily accessible for yourself and your family, especially your children. Get them their own special water cup, bottle or glass. Get one for their lunch box.

No one can turn down something that is perceived as special. Begin today teaching them the value of drinking water and help them get excited about it. Make fluid for life a priority for you and your entire family.

Water is Life! Drink it up starting today! That’s all for now, I have to go to the little girl’s room and lose some weight.  Go out and make something awesome happen in your life this week!

I Hate My Scale! Help For Your Weight Loss Plateau

23 Nov

How To Break a Plateau

It’s six weeks after american new year’s resolution and I am starting to get emails asking “How to Break My Weight Plateau”.  I have some ideas for you.   But first of all I want to thank all of you that made my “How Do I Get Abs” book launch on Amazon.com a global hit!  It was amazing, I made it to number 1! I even got a great screen shot of it for my Goals Accomplished wall.  I am getting so much positive feedback. It’s awesome.  I could not have done it without you!

I Hate My Scale! How To Break a Weight Loss Plateau

Check out this excerpt from a Special Science Report

Cutting Carbs Is More Effective Than Low-Fat Diet for Insulin-Resistant Women,Study Finds; Science Daily (June 21, 2010) — Obese women with insulin resistance lose more weight after three months on a lower-carbohydrate diet than on a traditional low-fat diet with the same number of calories, according to a new study.

Time for some new ideas.  If you are experiencing a stall or plateau in weight loss efforts, you are not alone. This occurs from time to time to almost all of us trying to get thinner. However, you first must make sure that you have actually reached a plateau point.

A plateau means that you have gone an extended period of time without losing weight or inches. It’s important to take your measurements before you start your weight loss plan, in addition to your weight. On some weeks it may not seem like you are not losing any weight at all on the scale. But a quick look at your measurements could prove otherwise.

On a higher protein diet you are replacing fat with muscle, which is denser and heavier. You might actually gain a little weight because you are building muscle. The result will be an increase on the scale, but a decrease in your inches. Your body will be smaller and leaner, but you may weigh the same.

Before you start your program, measure your chest, waist, hips, upper arms, thighs and calves. You never know where you may be losing inches, so it’s important to have these measurements to refer to.

It is normal to go through periods where you body is readjusting. Remember that you are reforming the composition of your body and this process will take some time. Check your measurements once a week, just like your weight, and you can track your overall progress.

What Is A Plateau?

There may be periods of 3 to 4 weeks where you have a plateau in weight loss, but a loss in inches. Or vice versa. Using both methods to track your fat loss is the best assurance for an accurate measure of your progress. These stall periods are not a reason to quit or to give up. They are biochemical parts of the weight loss process.

Plateaus may occur more frequently if you are 5 to 10 pounds away from being at your goal weight. By following a low-carb, higher-protein way of eating you have created a lot more muscle in your body. Your muscle-to-fat ratio is higher than ever before, so your body might be resisting losing anymore fat. It may be time to rethink your goal weight. Perhaps your body is trying to tell you something and its time to start maintaining your weight loss rather than trying to lose more.

What Causes Your Scale to Get Stuck?

There are some other possible causes of  plateaus on the road to weight loss. If you’ve gone four weeks with no change in weight or measurements and you are nowhere near your goal weight, you can try a few different methods to get yourself out of the rut. First, make sure your carbohydrate level is in check. If you are eating too many carbohydrate grams per day, your weight loss will stall. Look for hidden carbohydrates in your coffees, alcohol, packaged foods, snacks, dressings and sauces to make sure they aren’t the culprits in your plateau.

 Check your daily water intake. When you are dehydrated, your body will retain water and that can mimic a plateau. Water will also help flush ketones from your system and make more room for new fat burning ketones.

It may be time to eat more.

Under eating can also be a cause for weight loss plateaus. Make sure not to let yourself go hungry and eat smaller, more frequent meals. Remember, you are on a carbohydrate-restricted diet, not a calorie-restricted diet. Make sure to have some protein with every meal and snack. Never go more than 4 hours without eating something (except overnight of course). Also, eat freely from the acceptable foods. Don’t try to count calories or restrict your calorie intake. When your body gets too few calories, it goes into starvation mode and will hold onto fat cells. AAAHH!!

exercise

Pump It up!

Increasing your exercise level or adding more slower systemic fat burning cardio can help get you through a plateau as well. As your muscles get used to working out at a certain level, you’ll have to increase the duration or the intensity in order to keep challenging your body. Add a new exercise into the mix, or try increasing more reps into a light weight resistance training circuit.  You don’t need to go to a gym to do cardio. You can so it anyplace.

Trying one of these suggestions will most likely get your weight loss back on track. Remember that occasional stalls are normal, but they do not have to last.

See you on the step mill!
