I have been doing a 5 part series with Kim Sveum of ABC news. She wanted to do a series on healthy moms and decided that she needed to practice what she preached. So she enlisted my help at creating an eating and exercise plan that would help her lose fat, lose inches, and increase her energy levels.
Before I agreed to this, I wanted to make sure she was committed, because the last thing I wanted was for me to take before and after measurements on TV to 10,000’s of people and not have someone who was committed. After meeting with Kim, I could tell she was going to give it 100% and make me look good! 🙂 And boy did she ever!
Here were her actual stats:
Thigh 20.5 18.5
I want to make a couple points about these #s.
1. You can’t spot reduce: notice she lost pretty consistently in ALL parts of her body, not just in one area.
2. She gained 3 lbs of lean weight (muscle) through this process.
3. Although she lost 7lbs, she actually lost 10 lbs of fat.
4. She lost 3.25 inches in her abdomen.
5. She lost an astounding 7 % bodyfat total.
For exercise Kim didn’t do any traditional cardio instead focused on heavy weight training and interval cardio training. She worked out about 4 times/week for 45 minutes each time. She did a combination of my Fit Fun Bootcamps, MamaTone Fitness, and Fit Moms For Life DVDs.
She followed a higher protein and fat diet and lower carb and no sugar eating plan and no carbs after 3 pm. She drank 1 gallon of water each day and eliminated all processed foods and fake sugars. She ate about 1400 calories per day.
