hi I’m Jen this is the video where I tell you guys how I lost ten pounds first off I want to say that I am NOT a dietician everybody is idiosyncratic which means that every body is unique what techniques work for me may not particularly work for you we always have different body types and this is just how I lost ten pounds so let me start off with the general stats of my body late 2011 I was around 115 to 113 pounds my way is always fluctuating most bodies do and now in 2013 I am 100 pounds or 98 200 pounds before you freak out this is quite normal for my height I’m 5 1 and my BMI is 18.5 I’m not underweight and I’m actually a lot healthier now this took me over a year to lose this weight and maintain my weight right now so it’s not going to happen overnight so don’t expect it to number one take a picture of everything you eat I know it sounds ridiculous this is actually really important because just the conscious effort of taking a picture of your food stopping and hold your appetite for five seconds it makes it it makes a big difference every week you kind of can see what your diet was like I personally use an iPhone app called Adri it’s super super slow because the people created it have kind of left it on the back burner but it’s still functioning and it’s something that I use religiously I took over a thousand meals on that thing and it’s been helping me a lot to moderate what I eat and so if I eat a doughnut on Monday I’ll remember that I that doughnut until Friday where I can eat another doughnut you know you’ll start gathering data about yourself and just truly learning what it is take pictures of the good meals that you eat and the really crappy foods that you’re eating I found that documenting my food really makes me excited for my meals because I kind of I view food as a treat if you don’t have an iPhone just take a picture with your cell phone I’ll blow that into your laptop maybe every month and just kind of see what you ate it’s no different than writing down the food but I just think that taking a picture with your cell phone is a lot easier number two carbs for me are the devil I’m quite aware that there are good carbs aka complex carbohydrates that are good for you and break down slower in your body and there’s also bad carbs like refined carbohydrates that’s smooth that’s the really soft Wonderbread carbs that are freakin delicious I personally just try to avoid carbs as best as I can because I person would just rather use my calories on proteins veggies um fiber you know just other things that aren’t carbs if I really think about it I probably eat carbs maybe once or twice a meal I always try to make one meal in my day just completely carb list there is addicting components in carbs I just try my best not to fall into the cravings I found that I gradually weaned off carbs I stopped Oran fries at a restaurants get a side salad instead you’re already treating yourself out cuz you’re doing that freakin yummy burger there’s really no need to over indulge and get that pile of garlic fries even though they’re really good your body’s gonna thank you after when I’m eating pizza I won’t eat the crust even though it’s my favorite part especially if there’s like a garlic dipping sauce in it when you’re eating a sandwich take one slice of the bread off so it’s kind of an open-faced sandwich and when I’m deciding which bread to flip off from the sandwich I always make sure I keep the side of the bread that is soaked with the yummy sauces like whether it’s light mayo or honey mustard or something like that I just keep that side on just throw the rest of the carbs away they’re very subtle changes but gradually they’re going to help you wean off the carbs and just be a lot more healthy number 3 remix your meals that means that recipes aren’t confined to what it says on the paper or what already comes into your meal remember you can modify your recipes you can add things in you can take things out for an example instant noodles are one of my favorite meals it’s you know just kind of a staple if you’re a college student when I do with my noodles is that I break off what I break off half the noodles so I’m just using one half and then I’ll pour everything in on a you know but I’ll add zucchini I’ll add broccoli all it’s spinach kale tofu just anything to add more nutrients to my meal all that veggies and fiber is just gonna fill you up faster so you realize that you don’t really need all the so although you’re eating a sodium packed meal my personal thing is I just try to avoid carbs and that’s what worked for me whatever mediocre meal I’m cooking that night I’ll just add some broccoli on the side or some steamed veggies it just makes the components of your meal just a lot healthier and you’ll feel a lot better about yourself seeing some color a mate your meals and it’s just those baby steps that are gonna help you don’t really worry about the calories I never count calories I used to count calories in high school and that’s when I was the biggest it was so bizarre focus on what kind of nutrition you’re eating it just makes everything a lot smoother and easier for water is your best friend I’ve had this canteen for probably a year now it’s kind of my safety blanket it’s always around with 24/7 it’s always next to me when I’m filming at school next to my bed stand when I wake up you know I get thirst in the night and I’ll just start chugging the water try to sip water maybe three to four times an hour and you’ll realize that most time when you’re hungry you’re either just thirsty or you’re just bored so water can be your best friend ditch the soda ditch the juice I stopped drinking soda probably in high school and that helped a lot you might as well just eat the actual fruit because although juice some juices have vitamins in it you lose all the fiber which is what burns the calories when you’re digesting it juice is essentially just liquefied sugar so if you’re looking for the vitamins or the nutrients I would say just to eat the actual fruit because then you get filled up and you get the vitamins and it’s just nice to chew on something rather than just you know shoveling it and let it drizzle down your mouth I prefer chewing it five exercise of course you need it I’ve heard somewhere I don’t remember where that losing weight is 80% of your diet and 20% of exercise I think exercise is important if you want to have like a toned sexy body if I’m not gonna do cardio I’ll just stay indoors and do Blogilates which is my one of my favorite youtubers her name is Kathy Howe and she has great workout videos that are around five to nineteen minutes long some of them and I just did on my room and I I do that probably four to five times a week and that’s for strength training and I absolutely love her she has this vivacious and bubbly energy and she doesn’t work out with you and she talks with you the entire way and she’s just I just love her I think she’s the one who keeps me going to exercise so if you’re ever watching this cassie I want to say thank you for molding my body to what it is right now I used to do cardio in the summer and that’s when I was using Ozzy’s the treadmill all the time I would run maybe two to three miles three to four times a week but I stopped doing that because it’s just so cool to go outside to the gym I know it’s a stupid excuse but I think the holidays really kind of fatten me up and made me a little bit more lazy now I probably gonna get back into the groove of it once the weather warms up but I find that music listen to music and exercising didn’t really help me at all music just wasn’t enough of a distraction to me that’s how much I hate working out I would usually just put a youtube playlist on my smartphone and I’ll just watch YouTube videos as I’m working out another trick is to walk everywhere if you park your car somewhere forget the parking spot that’s right next to the CVS go Park all the way to the end where the trees are a word I don’t know some giant Cal plantation is just Park as far as you can and walk to the drugstore every step counts it’s all about gradual buildup usually if I’m craving something I’ll either work out I’ll start painting my nails or something I’ll I’ll do my homework I’ll pound a really long sip of water I think your body is always playing tricks on you I think it’s always saying that oh you’re so hungry you want this cupcake no you don’t need that cupcake you aren’t roll on your own body and if you want to lose ten pounds you can do it you know how to lose weight no one wants to hear it but it’s essentially the same thing you got to change your diet and you got to exercise those are the main two things and these are the little small changes that I made to my life and I don’t saying that I did these BAM overnight I think I started developing each rule around I don’t know five to six months apart if you mess up one day it’s okay it’s okay to mess up I you know you’re you’re a human and you have me and cravings but just don’t give up every meal is another chance to you know fix your diet I suppose if you have any diet tips down below feel free to let us know and remember if you don’t agree with something I’m saying I’m saying to you guys that I’m not a dietician I’m not a doctor I’m not a
