Take it away Laura!

Exercise – When I started working out I began to see my body start to transformed when I focused on weight training. You can reduce body fat by incorporating cardio and weight training on alternate days. Try 3 days cardio and 2 days weight training and try reversing it for the following week.

Weight loss – Be consistent with your exercise and be consistent with calorie counting and clean eating. If YOU aren’t calorie counting, your body ALWAYS is!!

Nutrition – Focus on proteins, to keep you fuller longer and to not create blood sugar swings like carbs do, and calorie counting. Consistent calorie counting is critical to weight loss. As a rule of thumb, start with your goal weight. Say your goal weight is 130 lbs. Then your calories should be 1300 cal/day. 140 lb, then 1400 cal/day, 150 lb, then 1500 cal per day. Calorie count on good days and bad days and always keep your protein intake at least 50% of your calories and the rest mainly from vegetables and fruits limited fats when trying to lose weight. Get a good calorie counting book. I recommend the Calorie King book or cellphone app My Fitness Pal and track your calories daily.
