  • Hi, I’m Jenn.

  • This is the video where I’ll tell you guys how I lost 10 pounds.

  • First of all, I want to say that I am NOT a dietitian.

  • Every body is idiosyncratic

  • which means that every body is unique.

  • What techniques work for me may not particularly work for you.

  • We all just have different body types

  • and this is just how I lost ten pounds.

  • So let me start off with the general stats of my body.

  • Late 2011 I was around 115 to 113 pounds.

  • My weight is always fluctuating most bodies do.

  • And now 2013 I am a hundred pounds or ninety-eight to a hundred pounds.

  • Before you freak out, this is quite normal for my height.

  • I am 5’ 1” and my BMI is 18.5.

  • I am not underweight, and I’m actually a lot healthier now.

  • This took me over a year to lose this weight

  • and maintain my weight right now.

  • So it’s not going to happen overnight.

  • So don’t expect it too.

  • Number one

  • Take a picture of everything you eat

  • I know it sounds ridiculous This is actually really important

  • because just the conscious effort of taking picture of your food

  • stopping and hold your appetite for 5 seconds.

  • It makes a big difference.

  • You kind of conceive what your diets was like

  • I personally use am IPhone app called Eatery

  • It’s super, super slow because people created it

  • have kind of left the back burner out

  • but it’s still functioning, and it’s something I use religiously

  • I took over a thousand meals on that thing.

  • And it’s been helping me a lot to moderate what I eat

  • and so if I eat an donut on Monday I wound remember that

  • I ate a donut until Friday when I can eat another donut

  • You know you start gathering data about yourselves and just truly learning what it is.

  • Take picture of the good meals that you eat

  • and the really crappy foods that you are eating.

  • I found that documents to my food really make me excited for my meals

  • because I kind of I view foods as a treat

  • If you don’t have an iPhone, just take pictures with your cellphone

  • Upload that into your laptop maybe every month

  • and just come to see what you ate

  • It’s no different than writing down the food

  • but I just think that taking a picture with your cellphone is a lot easier.

  • Number two

  • Carbs (carbohydrates) to me are the devil

  • I am quite aware that there are good carbs

  • AKA complex carbohydrates that are good for you

  • and breakdown slower in your body

  • And there’s also bad carbs like refined carbohydrates

  • That’s a really soft wonder bread Carbs that are freaking delicious

  • As I person just try to avoid carbs as best as I can

  • because I person would rather use my calories on proteins, veggies, fiber

  • You know just other things that aren’t carbs

  • If I really think about it

  • I probably eat carbs maybe once or twice a meal

  • I always try to make one meal my day just completely carb-less.

  • There’s addicting components in carbs

  • I just try my best not to fall into the cravings.

  • I found that I gradually wean off carbs

  • I stop ordering fries at restaurants

  • Get a side salads instead

  • You already treat yourself out because you are eating that freaking yummy burger

  • There’s really not need to overindulge in that pile of garlic fries

  • Even though it’s really good

  • Your body’s going to thank you after

  • When I’m eating pizza I won’t eat the crust

  • even though that’s my favorite part especially if there is garlic dipping sauce in it.

  • When youre eating sandwich, take a one slice of bread off.

  • So it’s kind an open-face sandwich

  • And when I am deciding which bread to flip off from the sandwich,

  • I always make sure I keep this side of bread that is soaked with yummy sauces

  • Whether it’s light mayo

  • Or like honey mustard Something like that

  • I just keep that side and throw the rest of the carbs away

  • Theyre very subtle changes but gradually

  • they're going to help you wean off the carbs and just be a lot more healthy.

  • Number 3 remix your meals

  • that means that recipes are unconfined to what it says on the paper

  • or what already comes to your meal

  • remember you can modify your recipes

  • you can add things in and take things out

  • For example, instant noodles are one of my favorite meals

  • You know it’s kind of a staple of a college student

  • But I do with my meals is that I break off half of the noodles

  • So I just use one-half

  • And then I put everything in on and you know

  • I'll add zucchini or I'll add broccoli or spinach, kale or tofu

  • just anything to add more nutrients to my meal

  • All that veggies and fibers

  • Just gonna fill you up faster

  • Youll realize that you don’t really need all the noodles

  • So Although you are eating a sodium-packed meal

  • My personal things is I just try to avoid carbs and that’s what worked for me

  • Whatever mediocre meal I am cooking at night

  • I’ll just add some broccoli on the side or some steamed veggies.

  • It just makes the components of a meal just a lot healthier

  • You will feel a lot better about yourself seeing some color in your meals

  • And just those baby steps that are gonna help you

  • Don’t really worry about the calories.

  • I never count calories

  • I used to count calories in high school,

  • and thats when i was the biggest

  • It was so bizarre

  • Focus on what kind of nutrition you are eating, you just make everything a lot smoother and easier

  • Four Water is your best friend

  • I have this canteen for probably a year now

  • And it’s kind of my safety blanket

  • It’s always around 24/7

  • It’s always next to me when I am filming

  • I am at school Next to my bedstand

  • when i wake up you know

  • I get thirsty in the middle of the night

  • I just start chugging the water

  • Try to sip water maybe three or four times an hour

  • And youll realize that most time when youre hungry,

  • You either just thirsty or you just bored

  • So water can be your best friend

  • Ditch the soda and ditch the juice and

  • I stopped drinking soda probably in high school and that helped a lot

  • You might as well just eat the actual fruit because although some juices have some vitamins in it

  • You lose all the fiber which is what burns the calories when you are digesting it

  • Juice is essentially just liquefied sugar

  • So if you are looking for the vitamins or nutrients

  • I would say you just to eat actual fruit because then you get filled up

  • You get vitamins and it’s just nice to chew on something rather than

  • just you know just shoveling and drizzle down your mouth

  • I prefer chewing it

  • Five Exercise

  • Of course you need it

  • I’ve heard somewhere I don’t remember where that losing weight is eighty percent

  • of your diet and twenty percent of exercise

  • I think exercise is important if you want to have a toned sexy body

  • If I am not going to do cardio I’ll just stay indoors and do Blogilates

  • which is one of my favorite Youtubers

  • Her name is Cassey Ho and she has great workout videos

  • that are around five to nineteen minutes long some of them

  • And I just do it at my room and I try to do that probably four to five times a week

  • That’s for strength training

  • And I absolutely love her

  • She has this vivacious and bubbly energy

  • And she does the work out with you and she talks with you entire way and she just I just love her

  • I think she’s the one who keeps me going to exercise

  • So youre ever watching this Cassey I want to say thank you for molding my body to what it is right now

  • I used to cardio in the summer so that’s why I was using treadmill all the time

  • I would run maybe two to three miles three to four times a week

  • but I stopped doing that because it’s so cold to go onside to the gym

  • I know it’s a stupid excuse but I think holiday really kind of fatten me up and make me a little bit more lazy

  • I probably back into the group that once weather warms up

  • But I find that listening to music and exercising didn’t help me at all.

  • Music just wasn't enough of a distraction to me

  • That’s how much I hate working-out

  • I would usually just put a youtube players on my smartphone

  • and I just watch youtube videos as I working out.

  • Another trick is to walk everywhere if you park your car somewhere

  • Forget the parking lot that’s right next to CVS

  • Go and park all the way to the end where the trees are

  • Or where I don’t know some giant cow plantation is

  • Just park as far as you can and walk to the drug store

  • Every step counts

  • It’s all about gradual build-up

  • Usually if I’m craving something on in workout

  • I’ll start painting my nails or something

  • I'll do my homework I’ll pound a really long sip of water

  • I think your body is always playing tricks on you

  • It’s always saying that oh youre so hungry

  • You want this cupcake

  • No you don’t need that cupcake

  • You are in control of your own body

  • And if you want to lose ten pounds you can do it

  • You know how to lose weight

  • No one wants to hear it but it’s essentially the same thing

  • You gotta change your diet and you gotta exercise

  • Those are the main two things

  • These are the little small changes I made to my life

  • I’m not saying that I did theseBAMovernight"

  • I think I start developing each rule around

  • I don’t know five to six months apart

  • If you mess up one day it's ok

  • It’s okay to mess up

  • You know you are human you have needs and cravings

  • But just don’t give up

  • Every meal is another chance to you know fix your diet I suppose
