Sophie revealed last year how she lost six kilos in just eight weeks. To lose weight, she simply reduced her calorie intake and consistently followed the pattern, increased her daily step count and maintained her exercise routine.
She said that not only has her body changed but that she has also experienced a “tremendous growth in her mentality.”
“Instead of sharing the essential things I’ve done to achieve weight loss, let me tell you what I’ve done for the past six and five years,” she wrote on Instagram.
For five years I trained, dieted, bounced, dieted again, bounced back, participated in a bikini contest, bounced back, dieted, and bounced again…and again…and again.
“I’ve always been dieting or not, and when I didn’t, I was so sick of it that I struggled to reverse and maintain that weight properly. The only consistency was that I went to the gym and got stronger week after week.
Sophie explained six months ago that she spent “all the time sitting in maintenance/slight excess feeling uncomfortable” and began questioning her “identity, ability, life, and self-worth.”
What are Sophie’s top tips for permanent fat loss?
1. Eat less than you burn in a day.
Sophie (pictured) shared the tips online. She often chooses something like an omelet to fuel her muscles
2. Move your body more frequently. It doesn’t have to be a permanent exercise, but then you should make sure you get 10,000 steps.
3. Track your progress (either by weight, pictures, measurements, how clothes fit, how you feel or strength) and make changes if things don’t move the way you want them to.
4. Accept that it takes time – and don’t expect change to happen overnight or even within a week.
5. Don’t jump to the end of the stabilization phase before you’ve been 100% steady for three to four weeks.
6. Eat mostly whole foods because you will have better energy, greater satiety, and improved overall health.
7. Frequent sleep and make sure it is of high quality. Aim for between seven and nine hours.
8. Try to reduce stress as much as possible.
9. Get someone who knows what they are doing to write a training and nutrition program for you.
