Don’t Follow Your Man’s Diet
The television diva advises you to never eat as much as your boyfriend or husband. Eating the same food is okay but you must limit your portions to control your weight. After all, they need to eat more because of their body shape, but you should never follow their lead by eating large meals.
Follow a Routine
The Sunderland born advises you to make a rigid routine and follow it. Her preference is to do her self created 3 Minute Belly Blitz first thing every morning and get it over with. You need to create your own fitness plan. If you are too lazy to get up at the same time in the morning or often forget to workout, you should put an alarm on your phone.
Expand your Fitness Goals
Charlotte wants you to keep aiming for harder and tougher workouts as it will help you map your progress. She has commented that she used to lose her breath even while doing one to three minute segment from her DVD, but she worked hard and progressed to nine minutes without being breathless.
Eat on a Table
You should also try to eat on a table and concentrate on eating only. Eating while doing other things such as watching television would make you forget how much you have eaten and you will end up eating more than you planned.
Measure Your Meals
The next piece of advice is that you should measure the calories of every item you eat. This will let you know how much you need to workout to burn those extra calories. Ultimately, it will help you stay away from fatty foods as well.
Wear Fit Clothes
You should never wear loose or too tight clothes as you will never guess how much weight you have lost. Stay away from Lycra (except while working out) and wear same sized clothes to get an estimate of whether you are losing weight or not.
Use the Selfies
Selfies are not just for getting likes on social media channels. You should use them to motivate yourself to stay fit. When you see the fitness progress you have made, you will not be tempted to let go off your workout routine.
No Time Shortage Excuses
You should never make excuses like you are too busy to exercise. Find some time for exercising daily (even three minutes will do) and stay fit for a long time.
Savor Your Food
You should also try to eat your food slowly. This will allow you to enjoy it more and you will feel full after a short period of time. Crosby relates that she used to eat up a heavy meal and then go for puddings as she used to eat her meals in 5 minutes flat. So, you better learn from her mistakes and save yourself some extra hours in the gym.
Try Different Exercises
Like most of the celebrities, the winner of twelfth series of Celebrity Big Brother also advises you to try different exercises as it will keep you from being bored and your body will be thankful for the changes, you make in your exercise routine.
