Natalie Jill in Two-Piece Workout Gear Targets Your "Belly Fat"

"If you’ve ever believed you can’t change YOUR belly situation watch this."

Natalie Jill is educating her followers about loose skin – in her workout gear. In a new social media post the fitness expert bares her belly and reveals that diet and exercise alone won't get rid of excess skin.  "52 (almost 53) here 👋If you've ever believed you can't change YOUR belly situation watch this," she says, revealing that she is hosting a free "Fat Loss As We Age Interactive workshops." How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


She Hit Rock Bottom


Natalie Jill was inspired to get in shape after looking at her own reflection in a store window. After a divorce she was depressed and turned to food for comfort. "I ate lots of fast food and junk, and wasn't active," she told Prevention. She had put on 60 pounds, 50 from pregnancy and an extra 10. She'd always been fit before, and "the person I saw, with all those bulges and things sagging, was not me," she said. 


She Mapped Out a Plan

She started doing research and mapped out a plan to exercise and eat better. She also gave herself a timeframe, vowing to incorporate more natural, unprocessed foods and adding a little more activity every day. "I promised I would give it four months and see what happened—no obsessing, no scale."


She Shaped Her Meals Around Lean Protein, Complex Carbs, and Healthy Fats

"I made sure that all of my meals contained lean protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats," says Jill. "I ate a lot of salads with grilled chicken or fish, and I added olive oil or avocado for fat." One of Jill's rules? She could only eat food with ingredients she could pronounce. She also ate more nutritious foods first, so she would fill up and "have less room for the 'bad.'"


She Stuck to Strength Training

After doing research she also learned she didn't have to spend money to get fit. She opted for strength and weight training, using body weight for resistance. Her workouts included lots of strength-training exercises, including pull-ups, squats, planks, and triceps dips. "I didn't spend hours working out," she says, adding, "If you are exercising daily, you really don't need more than 15 to 20 minutes."


She Shared Her Journey on Social Media

She started sharing her journey on social media, which motivated others. "People were interested—they would say, 'Oh, what are you doing to get in shape? I want to try it.' That kept me accountable," she says.after four months, she was where she wanted to be. "I couldn't believe it: I had lost 50 pounds and completely changed my body," she recalls. "It made me want to keep going."
