Freshology –30/40/30 Balance
Having suffered from emotional turmoil due to unhappiness, garnered from her first marriage with dancer, Jimmy Gulzar, and then betrayal from her ex-boyfriend, Eddie Murphy in 2006, Mel grew victim of stress eating. Due to her beast like consumption of unhealthy foods, she grew hefty and two and a half stone overweight. However, before long, she realized that she has turned into an overweight woman and Mel proactively embraced a very healthy diet program namely Freshology. She receives five pre-packaged meals on her doorsteps. The diet plan being inclined to render optimum health and well-being serves foods having protein/carb/fat in the ratio of 30/40/30. Mel prefers having protein smoothies in her snacks to energize her body to cope with muscle tearing strength training exercises.
One Cheat day – Without being insensitive to her cravings, Mel allows her one cheat day in a week. She enjoys her beloved foods such as cheese burger, or traditional English Sunday roast, etc. Since cheat day is free for consumption of all kinds of foods, you can eat your favorite foods without feeling guilty.
Diet Opulent in Omega-3 Fatty Acid
Mel was being overly concerned about the unsolicited pounds, she had gained. Her nutrition expert had her bank on salmon three times in a day to strip off fat. Despite not being in love with the food item, the stunner acted upon his suggestion, and the rewarding outcome indeed is in front of all of us. Besides salmon, she also incorporated myriad other foods such as flax seeds, olives, avocados, oatmeal etc. to suffice the need of omega-3 fatty acid in her body. These foods being anti-belly fat doesn’t let fat sustain on your body. Not to mention, Mel torched over ten pounds in a week while swearing by the above mentioned diet regime. The essential oil not only bumps up your metabolism, it also soothes your nervous system and thus provides you calm and sharp mind.
Vigorous Exercises – Core Muscle Group
Workouts immensely supported the former pop star in dropping weight. She hired personal trainer, Joey Kormier, who had her do variety of exercises such as cardio, strength training, interval training, martial arts (bag work, pad work, light sparring), yoga, and swimming etc. six days in a week and ninety minutes in a day. Her personal trainer made sure that she gets full body workout and the exercises build up her core. Since post pregnancy, core muscles grow frail, it’s very critical to do workouts to boost them because if your core is weak you cannot imagine having resilient body.

These superb time-saving options keep her body in motion all the while.
Dance – Favorite Cardio Workout
