okayguys Cassey here how are you doing on your fitness journey are you working hardare you trading hard are you eating well well probably one of the reasons whyyou clicked on this video is maybe because you’re having a little bit of troublea little bit of struggle losing weight is not easy it’s not easy for me it’snot easy for you for your friends for other people and even other fitness professionalsit is an emotional process it is physical it is time-consuming but you knowwhat it can be fun it can be really really fun if you know what foods to eatand how to work out so that it doesn’t even feel like a chore today we aredoing the top five countdown for best tips to losing weight tip number five isdrink water now last year when I was dieting down for my bikini competition Iwas drinking anywhere between 1.

5 to 2 gallons of water a day now that’s crazyit’s a little bit extreme because well a bikini competition is kind of extremebut here’s here’s what I would recommend you can either drink anywhere between8 to 12 glasses of water a day or because all our bodies are different checkyour pee I said it check your pee if your urine looks like apple juice you’regonna have to drink a little bit more water if it looks like lime juice notlemonade lime juice you are good you are hydrated so what advanced ways to dothis is to carry around a water bottle now this one is 600 milliliters I drinkseveral of these a day and what I love doing is adding in some frozen mangos orfrozen strawberries or sometimes even just like some slices of lemon and itreally flavors my water and tastes like hint water so that is a great way toflush out your toxins and also to keep you full sometimes when you feel hungryand then you grab a snack or something you’re not actually hungry your mind is tellingyou fill my stomach self a stomach sometimes it is thirst so the best thing todo before you eat a meal I suggest down a cup of water and then you’ll actuallybe able to tell when you’re hungry and when you’re full I she tried this for awhile and it did help me eat less tip number four cut out the refined carbs andreplace them with veggies so what is a refined carve your flat carb issomething like white rice white bread honey milk sugar these things will reallyget stored in your body as fat if you don’t use the energy right away what youwant to do is to place the refined car with a complex carb so so let’s let’slet’s get a little scientific here there are foods that are categorized undersimple carbs and foods categorized under complex carbs and what you want to dois replace these with these because simple carbs actually are made up of achemical structure that has two sugars these guys over here complex carbs aremade of a chemical structure with three sugars so the bonds that hold themtogether actually add a lot of fiber into your diet and takes a little bitlonger to digest meaning your body has to work a little bit harder to digestthese guys up here for example if you’re eating beef and rice for dinnerreplace it with beef and broccoli broccoli still has carbs to give you energybut they are complex carbs and it gives you a lot of fiber into your diet whichhelps you stay full and eat less plus I mean this is just from personalexperience when I am eating a lot of rice or a lot of bread I feel reallyreally slow and lethargic and sometimes I don’t even a lot I will just fallasleep you know that feeling after lunch you know you’re heading back intoclass you’re heading back into work and you were like really you really can’thandle any more like this thing’s in right now that is because of the food toeat but if you’re eating your vegetables in your lean protein you will stillfeel energetic tip number three don’t eat fruit after 2:00 p.m. what do I meanyou know a lot of Fitness competitors and bodybuilders don’t eat fruitthroughout their whole competition prep diet because of the sugars in the fruitand the carbs in the fruit now I’m not telling you to do that because you willgo insane you’ll be very unhappy I tried it myself last year when I wasprepping for my competition and I was going lutely crazy and what I suggest isthat just eat your fruit in the beginning part of the day 2 p.m. is your cutofftime so that you have a lot more time to burn off the sugar is to burn off and useup that energy so you know for example if you’re eating an apple for breakfastalong with some oatmeal all good burning burning burning you can definitelyhave the fruit right before your workout to really pump up your energy storesand really get you revved up for your workout that’s totally ok but if you’rehaving your fruit towards the end of the day you’re probably about to go tosleep so what’s gonna happen to that there are some people that absolutely cutout their fruit if they’re really really really trying to lose every you knowif your body fat percentage is really really that important you really need toget down to certain level then you may have to eliminate fruit but I suggest tostay sane to really hit your goals while feeling happy which is what we’retrying to do here we’re not trying to make you feel like this is a horrendousjourney a just how to get through it and once you’re done you’re done no I wantthis to be an eating clean lifestyle and an eating clean lifestyle to meincludes fruit because it’s happy it’s healthy and it’s delicious remember totry to eat fruit before 2 p.m.

and you will seriously seriously see a change inyour physique I promise at the same time don’t you be sneaking in some other cheesecakesof stuff after 2 p.m. ok ok tip number 2 don’t be a cardio funny
