Muchas personas que desean lograr un mejor cuerpo reducen su consumo diario de calorías al mínimo, lo que es una estrategia dudosa desde el punto de vista de la salud.
La bloguera australiana Madalin Giorgetta demostró con unas reveladoras fotos del ‘antes y después’, que precisamente hacer lo contrario realmente puede ayudar a lograr un cuerpo perfecto.
Its difficult putting your body out there for people to view, judge, and comment as they please. When I take a photo I do take my best angles. The best representation of what my body actually looks like is my transformation photos, and they are so nerve-wracking to post. @tashoakley got slammed by the Daily Mail who «exposed how her real body looks, without the filters.» So how does this make a normal person feel, when apparently even someone as gorgeous as Tash has a body that can be picked apart? Is she not allowed to take photos that flatter her shape? Is this so wrong? I know people will say that this picture isn’t the same position/lighting/clothing/hair/eyebrows 😐 as the before photo but I know the work I’ve done over the last 6.5 months and I don’t feel like I’m duping anyone. I have worked hard for my results and they can be seen best when my legs are at the right angles to emphasise my gains. Let me ask you this: would you feel confident to post your least favourite angle of your body… in your underwear? I like many women, could list a thousand things that are «wrong» with my body. I used to beat myself up over it but now and maybe because I have gotten older, am trying to be more accepting and loving towards my body. Taking unflattering photos of my body certainly does not make me feel more confident in my body. Maybe in time I’ll be confident to show photos of me when I’m not flexing, when I’m bloated AF, or the cellulite on my thighs but for now I can’t do it. And that’s okay. We shouldn’t be made to feel bad about ourselves. Accepting and loving our bodies (especially as women) is a difficult journey and it’s okay if you need to make it a little easier for yourself along the way #usethegoddamnfilter #realtalk
La joven de 27 años no sufría de sobrepeso pero deseaba tener un cuerpo más fuerte y estar en mejor forma.
Para lograr su objetivo, al principio decidió seguir una estricta dieta baja en calorías y carbohidratos. Según el diario ‘Metro’, lo que Madalin no notó es que su dieta de 800 calorías al día no le estaba aportando a su cuerpo una cantidad suficiente de macronutrientes, con lo que no podría alcanzar su meta.
Dem back gainzzz 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼 when I first started Sweat with Kayla, I wanted to skip all the exercises that were for your arms and back. I just wanted abs and to tone up my booty. What woman ever wants a strong back? Me, that’s who! How times have changed! Now I love seeing my back and arm progress as you can really see the muscles and tone developing in those areas. My legs have actually gotten bigger but look leaner and more toned since starting BBG and most of the cellulite I had prior is gone. It’s so important to take weekly photos so you can see your progress, often you’ll think your body isn’t changing but when you see proof it’s so motivating to keep on going! 🙌🏽💦💯
«Cuando consumía 800 calorías al día, pensaba que estaba llevando una vida saludable», publicó en su cuenta de Instagram.
Dado que la bloguera no veía los resultados deseados, consultó a un nutricionista que le recomendó agregar 1.000 calorías y un 50 por ciento de carbohidratos a su dieta diaria. «No pierdan su tiempo comiendo ensaladas cuando podrían estar comiendo patatas dulces y tortitas de plátano. Comer más y ponerse en forma. De verdad funciona», aconsejó a sus seguidores tras ver los resultados de su nueva estrategia alimenticia: un cuerpo más fuerte, tonificado y sin engordar.
Let’s just preface this by saying no, I did not have an ED. When I was eating 800 calories a day, I thought I was healthy. I was eating healthy food, but hardly any macronutrients. I was curious to find out what my macros were like before I actually started counting my macros, so I entered my old foods into @myfitnesspal to find out. I was quiet astonished to see how little protein and carbs I was eating. 800 calories seems absurdly low as now I need minimum 1500 calories to be full, but at the time 800 calories was keeping me full because that’s what my body was used to. After a while though, salad simply wasn’t cutting it, and for all the restrictions I was placing on my diet, I simply wasn’t seeing the results I had anticipated. So I got in touch with a PT and nutritional coach and got my macros sorted. When he first told me to eat 50% carbs I nearly died! I was eating about 10% carbs before and could not fathom how 50% carbs would not make me fat. I also freaked out at all the calories. I’ve been keeping an excel spreadsheet and in the first week of being on macros my average calories for the week was a little over 1000. I remember how hard I struggled to actually eat the size of my meals. I would just put my lunch next to my desk and eat it over the course of 3 hours as I couldn’t eat it in one sitting! Now my stomach can take way more and is much happier! In the second week I was averaging 1600 calories a day! It didn’t take long for my body to catch up. A part of me may always have that mindset that relates not eating with weight loss and «being good today». Sometimes I may forget to eat lunch just because I got busy and for a second I will revert back to old thinking, and think «ohh, I’ve done really well today and haven’t eaten much at all.» That’s why I love tracking my macros. It will tell me «Maddy, you need to eat more. Go eat 3 potatoes». And I’ll pat myself on the back for being healthy and doing really good today! If you’re under feeding yourself in an effort to lose weight, don’t do what I did for so long. Don’t waste your time eating salad when you could be eating sweet potatoes and banana pancakes. Eat more and get fit. It actually works 🙌🏽
«Empecé con 52 kilos y ahora estoy en 52 kilos… Tengo abdominales, bíceps visibles y un trasero bonito, así que no me quejo. Y ni hablar de mi salud mental y lo increíble y llena de energía que me siento cada día», concluye Madalin.
Doing it for the booty 🍑🍑🍑 as some of you know I started BBG 2.0 this week (or Sweat with Kayla week 13). I was excited to try it as I’ve already completed two rounds of BBG 1.0 (24 weeks) and was ready for the next challenge 💪🏼 I gotta tell you, so far I am loving it! 💜💚💛 I feel that the main difference is that in BBG 1.0 you want to kill yourself for 28 minutes and in BBG 2.0 you’re more interested in living 😂😂😂 BBG 1.0 involves a LOT of jumping 🐸🐸🐸 think burpees, jump lunges, jump squats, jump everythang 😫 and BBG 2.0 is more static and involves heavier weights which I love ❤️🏋🏼❤️ think weighted barbell squats, arms raises, weighted sit-ups etc. I’ll do a full review once I finish BBG 2.0 but for now, I’m a fan 😍😍😍
Stealing my sisters room for selfies 👯💞🙈 I posted these leggings on my story last week and I had heaps of people wanting to know the brand. They are by @flexilexi_fitness and probably make me look more graceful than I actually am 🌸 I’ve always been a terrible dancer and totally «unco» as my sisters would say! Sisters can be so mean sometimes haha but I love them 💓My mum has 3 pictures on top of our piano at home, one of my older sister in one of her modelling photos 💁🏻 and two of my twin in separate dancing photos 💃🏼 None of me coz I only played basketball 🏀 thanks mum 👍🏼😂 (sending this photo to her now for her to frame thanks!)
