Q: What is HIIT?

Q: What’s your HIIT routine?
A: I have two that I switch between:
2 minutes walking, incline 4, speed 4.0 mph. 2 minutes jogging, speed 6.0 incline 1.5. 1 minute sprint, 7.5 mph incline 1.5. I repeat this 4-5 times for a total of 25-30 minutes!
2 minutes moderate intensity, 1 minute sprint, all at incline 8 resistance 8. I do this for 30 minutes.
Q: What defines clean eating?
A: Clean eating means not eating processed, man-made foods. Clean foods are fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, organic meats (usually chicken/turkey or fish), eggs, and basically anything else that comes from nature. No chips, refined sugar, fried foods etc.
Q: Where can I find the documentary Hungry For Change?
Q: I’m trying to lose weight, how should I start?
A: start by changing your diet to “clean” foods - no processed junk, eat mostly fruits, veggies and lean meats (chicken, turkey, fish…etc)
then get an exercise routine going. make sure to do cardio as well as strength training.
Another tip: drink TONS of water and green tea. Those help aid weightloss.
Q: I’ve hit a plateau, I’m getting so frustrated! I work out a lot and am eating right but I’m not losing anymore weight. I’m about to give up!
A: Don’t give up! This is normal and it happens to almost everybody. Just keep calm and switch things up a little! Try eating a little bit more (of healthy foods of course) and changing up your workouts! Maybe add a few more reps of weight training or do a different form of cardio! Whatever you do, just give it time!
Q: How can I get rid of fat from (insert body part here)?
A: You can’t spot reduce. I can’t say this enough, the only way to get rid of fat is by eating a clean diet and exercising. Doing crunches will not get rid of stomach fat, doing squats will not get rid of thigh fat, and doing bicep curls will not get rid of arm fat. You have to do cardio, strength, and have a clean diet to reduce your overall body fat, and this takes time. Do not expect to see a drastic change in a stubborn body part in 3 weeks time.
Q: How can I get rid of cellulite?
A: First get your eating in line! Eat clean foods 80% of the time, or more if you like! Just make sure you don’t feel restricted and end up overeating on junk food!
Next, I recommend doing cardio 3-5 days a week, preferably 3 days a week of HIIT (you can look up various HIIT workouts on google)
Lastly, you need to be doing leg/butt strength training. This can include lunges, squats, plie squats, donkey kicks, leg lifts, and fire hydrants (all with weights if you want to make them harder)!
Q: What are your favorite snack foods?
A: When I get hungry for a snack, I usually grab either:
- apple with natural peanut butter
-vanilla flavored granola
-a handful of almonds
Q: Do you take any supplements?
A: Yes, everyday I take my multivitamin and fish oil
Q: What are some calorie dense foods I can add to my diet?
A: chocolate covered almonds, normal almonds, cashews, nut butters, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, dried prunes, dried figs and apricots, coconut shreds, dates, natural granola, chocolate coconut butter, lara bars, kind bars, quest bars, avocado, beans, full fat greek yogurt, olive/coconut oil, seeds
Q: I used to/still have an eating disorder…..
A:I can’t help you. I desperately wish I could, but I have absolutely no experience with eating disorders and I am in no way capable of giving you advice, nor should I even try. You need to talk with your parents/doctor regarding anything health/fitness related! You could also check out this blog and ask her, she’s struggled with stuff like this before! <3
