She Cuts Carbs
"In general, a low-carb diet focuses on proteins and some nonstarchy vegetables. A low-carb diet generally limits grains, legumes, fruits, breads, sweets, pastas and starchy vegetables, and sometimes nuts and seeds. However, some low-carb diet plans allow small amounts of fruits, vegetables and whole grains," says the Mayo Clinic.
She Eats Proteins
"Protein is essential for both building and repairing lean muscle. And while lots of people think about protein at lunch and dinner, they often overlook it at breakfast and for snacks. The truth is that research supports consuming approximately 30 grams of high-quality protein at each of your three main meals and additional protein for snacks. This might look like 2 eggs, whole grain toast and 6 ounces Greek yogurt at breakfast, a salad with 3-5 ounces salmon or chicken, cheese, and veggies paired with fruit at lunch, and steak and veggie kabobs with 3-5 ounces beef and stir fry brown rice at dinner. Then adding proteins like string cheese, nuts, beef jerky, and even protein bars at snack time," Amy Goodson, MS, RD, CSSD, LD author of The Sports Nutrition Playbook told our sister site Eat This, Not That!
She Does Quick Workouts
Her workouts are "based on very intense cardio in which you do aerobic and some weight-bearing exercises," she has said. For your exercise program, says the Cleveland Clinic, make sure:
- "It is aerobic. It uses large muscle groups repetitively for a sustained amount of time
- You perform it for 30 to 60 minutes, three to five days a week
- It meets the cardiovascular goals your doctor or exercise physiologist has prescribed for
- It is something you will enjoy doing for an extended period of time."
She Has a Home Gym
For your home gym, get some resistance bands. "These large rubber bands come in various resistances, which is indicated by color. Can you do a push-up or pull-up? If you can't, 'light' would be best until you build more strength. If you can do a modified push-up (on knees) and assisted pull-up, the 'medium' resistance is a good choice to start with. 'Heavy' would be ideal for someone who can do a full push-up or unassisted pull-up," says ACE Fitness.
She Works Her Core
Try this to work out your core: "Lie on your back and place your arms by your sides. Engage the abdominals and draw the navel toward your spine. Lift the knees to 90 degrees. On a two-count, lower your right foot to touch the floor, and on a two-count, return it back to 90 degrees. Perform the same movement with your left leg and continue to alternate tapping the right and then the left foot onto the floor. Perform 10 reps on each leg," says ACE Fitness.
