Are you surprised at the stories when a person was able to lose many pounds in a short time? We are very surprised not so much at the result as at the manifestation of strength, patience, and self-confidence. In this article, we will look at an example of the charming Tamela Mann, singer, and participant in several reality shows. Most recently, she became an ambassador for WW. This was the first step to its amazing results. Even a knee surgery or a busy schedule did not interfere with her weight loss goal. Interestingly, the 31-year-old daughter Manna Tiffany also joined her mom in this weight loss marathon. This story cannot but motivate, is it not so?
“It’s nice to have a family member who’s like-minded on this journey! We both have goals we’re trying to reach,” Mann told WW. “Mama has always led by example — she’s a great wife and mother, and an incredible performer. I’ve found myself looking to her to learn how to take better care of my body because she’s taken off! She is doing so well!” Tiffany said of Mann.
Sometime after the start of the program, the singer confirmed good results with her appearance in one video. In her interview, she clarified that she lost 40 pounds! She does not doubt that WW programs can change lives for the better.
We can’t wait to find out what could have influenced the changes in the weight and health of the gospel singer so much.
As with any other schedule change, Tamela Mann began with a diet.
She “reset” her usual meals following the WW program. As a participant, you will have access to a virtual trainer and the so-called “science-based SmartPoints system”. It is adapted individually for each participant, taking into account your gender, weight, height, and age. For many, it will seem a convincing advantage that, following such a “diet”, no products are prohibited.
When compiling a healthy diet menu, several general rules should be kept in mind: firstly, you need to eat food often in small portions, from which Tamela Mann began. It is most convenient to have a small plate in which a handful of the size of a handful is placed. No need to be afraid of hunger! A healthy diet involves 5-6 meals per day. It is also good to train yourself to eat at the same time – this stabilizes the stomach and will contribute to weight loss.
In addition to this rule, we will tell you about a few more, which are important not to forget during weight loss.
The second important rule is to calculate calories. There is no need to calculate them throughout life every time after a meal, it is enough to follow your diet for about a week, and the habit of automatically calculating the calorie content of a meal will appear by itself. Everyone has their calorie norm; for example, you can find out using a special calculator that is easy to find on the Internet. For example, a woman of 30 years old, weighing 140 pounds with a height of 170 cm and a little physical activity per day, needs about 2000 kcal. To lose weight, you need to consume 80% of the calories from the norm, that is, in our example, about 1600 kcal per day. Also, there is no point in cutting the diet – the body will simply slow down the metabolism, and there is more harm from such a diet than benefit.
Rule three – you need to maintain a balance between the energy spent by the body on basic metabolism, work, sports, and caloric intake. Food includes four main components: proteins, fats, carbohydrates and dietary fiber – all of them are necessary for our body. The only question is which of them (fats and carbohydrates are different), in what quantities and proportions to use. Approximately recommended indicators – 60 g of fat, 75 g of protein, 250 g of carbohydrates and 30 g of fiber.
The fourth rule is to drink water. Often we do not want to eat, just our body takes a lack of fluid for hunger and makes us eat what is not needed. One and a half and more liters of pure drinking water will help get rid of overeating, make the skin more elastic, improve the general condition of the body, and accelerate the metabolism.
And the fifth rule – choose products wisely. Read labels, composition and calorie content of foods, exclude fast food, sauces, products with chemical additives from the diet. You must know what you eat, and then the path to beauty and health will be quick and enjoyable.
Besides, Tamela Mann trained, but after the operation, it took her some time to recover. But after that, she appeared in public without a cane, which can already be considered a huge process!
