My diet. I use meal replacement as a lifestyle change. I say lifestyle change because it’s important not to just diet but to change the way you eat forever. I replace two meals a day with a Body by Vi shake. You can read about What is Body by Vi for more information on the shakes. As my third meal, I eat 4 to 6 ounces of lean meat, 2 vegetables and a fruit. I also drink water and only water during the day with lemon in it for flavor.
As for what meals I replace, I like to replace my breakfast and lunch just because it’s simple and I can eat dinner with my family. You can replace any meals you like with the shake though so it really doesn’t matter. It’s whatever works for you to lose 5 lbs in 5 days.
My exercise regimen. Right now, I dance 30 minutes a day. Sometimes I’ll just put on music and time myself as I dance the time and pounds away. To lose 5 pounds in 5 days, you must exercise at least 30 minutes a day. I also use my kinect with the Xbox and play dancing games to make it a competition for me. That way I’m always trying to beat my high score and it’s really fun!
I also do strength training a few days a week. This includes crunches, push-ups, squats and the like. I recommend doing 2 sets of 10 of each exercise and to do it every other day instead of every day. I work my abs one day, my legs the next and my arms the next to give my muscles a rest in between days.
