It all began when the diva realized that she was at an age where the bodies of women start to go through menopause. She also saw some changes in her body and didn’t like it.
The TV star decided to change her body by training with trainer Mia Finnegan to take things at a higher level. She says that her workouts are different than the average gym goer. She admits to doing everything from bicep curls to sprints to pull-ups.
Her workout routine began at 4.30 in the morning when she did some low-intensity cardio. Then, she met Finnegan and they did some lifting. The next step consisted of doing split body parts, shoulders, legs, triceps or biceps. They focused on two body parts every day and it included abdominals almost every day. She worked out hard for five months and saw her body change in front of her eyes.
No Quick Success
The Real Housewives of Orange County (2006-Present) star says that her fitness is not a result of a few quick steps. It took a lot of time and she was discouraged at times. She questioned her steps at many times and didn’t know what she wanted. But after the process was over, she was proud of it. She also added that the changes she had made in her body would usually have taken a year, but she did it in 5 months according to Finnegan.
The spokeswoman for Duzoxin weight management system also revealed some of her diet secrets. She believes that the biggest part of training is eating. She is now eating to live rather than living to eat. She creates her own food boxes by using two different types of protein. She just grabs them when she goes out in a little lunch bag.
The TV personality spend hours in prepping her food every day. The main components of her diet are protein and veggies. She believes that if a person cannot have enough protein, it’s as bad as overeating. The breakfast she has includes oatmeal, egg whites, and blueberries. She then goes for a workout session. After the exercise session, she has an after-workout AdvoCare drink. Tamra adds a lot of supplements to her daily diet. The next meal includes about 4 oz. of ground turkey and some raw vegetables. She then has a protein bar. The next meal would include some chicken. In short, she is eating all day and never felt hungry on any day.
No Cheat Days
The mother of four never had a cheat day. She thinks that cheat days were not an option when she was training hard. She stuck to her diet and remained focused at almost all times.

Tamra now aims at becoming a better person inside and out. She admits that though, she didn’t have entire cheat days, she slipped up a bit when she had a few drinks but these incidents were rare. She also adds that she won’t let her carb deprived mind to put barriers in her fitness path.
The result of the hard work put in by the bikini fitness competitor is that she has lost 16 percent body fat and now weighs around 111 lbs.

She had always wanted to participate in such a competition but didn’t have the tools.
