Guest Blog-Drop 2 Jean Sizes in 42 Days Challenge
Our blog is written by Dustin Maher founder of Fit Moms For Life and creator of the Transformation Center
“I want to fit back into my skinny jeans,” is one of the most common things I hear said when someone comes to the Transformation Center. Another one is, “I want to have less of this hanging over,” as they grab their fat around their midsection which many refer as their “muffin top.”
#1 Make your only liquid you drink the entire time be water. Liquid calories generally get in the way of our fat loss goals… are their exceptions? Sure, but not for these 42 days.
#2 Know where you are starting. Measure your waist, hip, and thighs so you have your numbers and also do a few fitness tests before you get started.
#3 Go gluten and dairy free. Many people have food sensitivities to gluten and dairy, so lets just go off it for these 42 days and see if you feel any different, and then reintroduce them after.
#4 Consume a good amount of fat (30% or more) to regulate hormones, boost metabolism and make you feel full. Coconut oil, real butter, extra virgin olive oil, avocados, nuts, and seeds are all great sources of fat.
#5 Exercise 4-6 times per week doing a combination of intense weight training, burst training, and two days of longer distance cardio. We need to turn your body into a fat burning machine. Really focus on your leg exercises for weights, because they are your biggest muscle groups, burn the most calories, and are what you are trying to change to slip into your skinny jeans.
#6 (Bonus) Have at least 2-3 others who are checking up on you and supporting you and making sure you are following through on your 42 day commitment.
