She was showing off her bikini body last week
At 70 years old!!!
^^^ which puts our “I’m too old” excuses well and truly to bed
1* Mindfulness –
She spoke about “slowing down” when you’re eating
And this is something I get some members in my 90-Day Body Transformation Programme to do
By noting down what they’re eating and when
Just THIS alone can stop you from mindlessly picking
And even pinching your kids chocolate biscuits
Especially when you’ve just got back from a long day
To find the house in a mess
And that your hubby didn’t take the bins out …
^^^ “he had ONE job”
2* She understands that quality and QUANTITY of foods are king!
This is where you often go wrong
Thinking that you have to “give up” your favourite, “naughty, but nice” chocolate fingers
And just eat lettuce and “healthy fats” like avocado and nuts
Just to lose weight
But what MAY happen when you do this?
You become frustrated that your jeans aren’t getting any looser
Even though you’re eating “healthy fats” and salads
And using up all of your willpower by ditching the cream teas
^^^ which makes you crave them even more!!!
So you just blame your “metabolism”
And think that it must be different for you
When – in reality – you’ve not considered that your overall food intake
You can drop a dress size eating chocolate mini fingers
Just like you can drop a dress size eating healthy fats and salads
Truth is, a combination of both will probably be the best recipe for you
To keep your new look body and fit into your more fashionable clothes for good (or at least until you’re 70!)
3* She gave up sugar…
I know what you’re thinking
“You just said you can eat chocolate fingers and still tone up”
And you can.
This is actually where the “Registered Nutritionist” in me had to come out and get all sciencey
Because she says she gave up sugar
But then still eats things like rice, gluten free bread and bananas…
Which are ALL converted to SUGAR when in your body
Now, of course
These aren’t “added sugars”
^^^ like those found in fizzy drinks, chocolates, sweets
But they’re still “sugar”
Your body doesn’t discriminate…
That said, foods like fruit, rice and oats do contain fibre
Which could help keep you fuller for longer
And stopping you needing more and more chocolate fingers a few hours later
But – once again – it’s coming back down to QUANTITY!
And Carolyn urges others to consider:
Never deprive yourself of the foods and drinks you love
Just be careful of ‘portion size’
4* She eats protein with every, single meal
Carolyn hit the nail on the head with this one:
”It stops the cravings.’
And there you have it
The keys to getting your bikini body BACK
Even at the age of 70..
Which begs the question <<< or questions…
Is it really “too late to start”?
Is it really that your metabolism isn’t “as fast as it used to be”?
Are you really any different to the other busy mums who’re enjoying fitting back into their favourite clothes…
Whilst working and – of course – picking up after kids and hubby
^^ which is a full time job in itself!
^^^ which means you don’t need to join a gym or “give up sugar” to get your bikini body back!
Rather than relying on another cookie-cutter diet
Fit for any Tom, Dick or Harry!
