okay the top five countdown for best tips

okay
guys Cassey here how are you doing on your fitness journey are you working hard
are you trading hard are you eating well well probably one of the reasons why
you clicked on this video is maybe because you’re having a little bit of trouble
a little bit of struggle losing weight is not easy it’s not easy for me it’s
not easy for you for your friends for other people and even other fitness professionals
it is an emotional process it is physical it is time-consuming but you know
what it can be fun it can be really really fun if you know what foods to eat
and how to work out so that it doesn’t even feel like a chore today we are
doing the top five countdown for best tips to losing weight tip number five is
drink water now last year when I was dieting down for my bikini competition I
was drinking anywhere between 1.5 to 2 gallons of water a day now that’s crazy
it’s a little bit extreme because well a bikini competition is kind of extreme
but here’s here’s what I would recommend you can either drink anywhere between
8 to 12 glasses of water a day or because all our bodies are different check
your pee I said it check your pee if your urine looks like apple juice you’re
gonna have to drink a little bit more water if it looks like lime juice not
lemonade lime juice you are good you are hydrated so what advanced ways to do
this is to carry around a water bottle now this one is 600 milliliters I drink
several of these a day and what I love doing is adding in some frozen mangos or
frozen strawberries or sometimes even just like some slices of lemon and it
really flavors my water and tastes like hint water so that is a great way to
flush out your toxins and also to keep you full sometimes when you feel hungry
and then you grab a snack or something you’re not actually hungry your mind is telling
you fill my stomach self a stomach sometimes it is thirst so the best thing to
do before you eat a meal I suggest down a cup of water and then you’ll actually
be able to tell when you’re hungry and when you’re full I she tried this for a
while and it did help me eat less tip number four cut out the refined carbs and
replace them with veggies so what is a refined carve your flat carb is
something like white rice white bread honey milk sugar these things will really
get stored in your body as fat if you don’t use the energy right away what you
want to do is to place the refined car with a complex carb so so let’s let’s
let’s get a little scientific here there are foods that are categorized under
simple carbs and foods categorized under complex carbs and what you want to do
is replace these with these because simple carbs actually are made up of a
chemical structure that has two sugars these guys over here complex carbs are
made of a chemical structure with three sugars so the bonds that hold them
together actually add a lot of fiber into your diet and takes a little bit
longer to digest meaning your body has to work a little bit harder to digest
these guys up here for example if you’re eating beef and rice for dinner
replace it with beef and broccoli broccoli still has carbs to give you energy
but they are complex carbs and it gives you a lot of fiber into your diet which
helps you stay full and eat less plus I mean this is just from personal
experience when I am eating a lot of rice or a lot of bread I feel really
really slow and lethargic and sometimes I don’t even a lot I will just fall
asleep you know that feeling after lunch you know you’re heading back into
class you’re heading back into work and you were like really you really can’t
handle any more like this thing’s in right now that is because of the food to
eat but if you’re eating your vegetables in your lean protein you will still
feel energetic tip number three don’t eat fruit after 2:00 p.m. what do I mean
you know a lot of Fitness competitors and bodybuilders don’t eat fruit
throughout their whole competition prep diet because of the sugars in the fruit
and the carbs in the fruit now I’m not telling you to do that because you will
go insane you’ll be very unhappy I tried it myself last year when I was
prepping for my competition and I was going lutely crazy and what I suggest is
that just eat your fruit in the beginning part of the day 2 p.m. is your cutoff
time so that you have a lot more time to burn off the sugar is to burn off and use
up that energy so you know for example if you’re eating an apple for breakfast
along with some oatmeal all good burning burning burning you can definitely
have the fruit right before your workout to really pump up your energy stores
and really get you revved up for your workout that’s totally ok but if you’re
having your fruit towards the end of the day you’re probably about to go to
sleep so what’s gonna happen to that there are some people that absolutely cut
out their fruit if they’re really really really trying to lose every you know
if your body fat percentage is really really that important you really need to
get down to certain level then you may have to eliminate fruit but I suggest to
stay sane to really hit your goals while feeling happy which is what we’re
trying to do here we’re not trying to make you feel like this is a horrendous
journey a just how to get through it and once you’re done you’re done no I want
this to be an eating clean lifestyle and an eating clean lifestyle to me
includes fruit because it’s happy it’s healthy and it’s delicious remember to
try to eat fruit before 2 p.m. and you will seriously seriously see a change in
your physique I promise at the same time don’t you be sneaking in some other cheesecakes
of stuff after 2 p.m. ok ok tip number 2 don’t be a cardio funny have you ever
seen those women at the gym core just doing an elliptical for like four hours
and yes they may look slim but where is the musculature let me tell you a
better way to lose weight look toned and feel energetic so you need to lift
weights you need to lift weights and I’m not saying you have to go into the
weight room with all the intense and intimidating guys though you shouldn’t be
intimidated you are empowered you are beautiful you go wherever you want what
I’m saying is that you need to lift something and with Pilates that counts to
Pilates allows you to use your own body weight to act as resistance anytime
your muscles are working like that you are burning calories you are working
hard and in fact you continue to burn calories after you workout with cardio
when you’re done you’re done you’re done so guys if you really want to keep
your metabolism revved up lift your weights do your Pilates and also if you
really need to you know pick it up another crazy notch of intensity do those
pop hits those pop hits will lean you out like nothing else these pop hits are crazy
they stand for high-intensity interval training and these ones will skyrocket
your heart rate get you sweating oh man this gets me drenched and it will
absolutely absolutely change your physique and you know what it only lasts
about 45 minutes to an hour and you’re done and I guarantee I absolutely guarantee
you that you will burn way more calories and change your body way faster than
you will standing on that elliptical for two hours and if you want to know how
you should pair your workouts every day if you guys don’t already know I

or something like this where you can write down your breakfast your lunch or
snack through dinner and also what you did for your workout it’s seriously will
keep you in line you really really need to do that in fact I always write down
my workout before I do it but I don’t go to the gym and I’m like well if you
write down what you’re going to do it’s kind of like that paper is your
