Working out is not a joke for for the faint-hearted, media personality, Bolanle Olukanni says as she shares her weight loss journey.
In a new vlog she just launched, Bolanle explained how she went from a 12/14 to an 8/10 without working out.
She explained that she changed her eating habits and that led to her losing weight.
She shares a few tips on how one can lose waiting without gong to the gym.
I CUT OUT SUGAR: Specifically processed sugar. You have to cut out sugar if you want to lose weight. Sugar, when it’s consumed too much, it turns to fat. So, if you’re not working out like I did, cut it out completely. This means no cake, no sweets, no tom tom, no honey. Honey is going to turn into fat. If you’re trying to lose
weight, you cannot swap sugar for honey.

I REDUCED MY CARBOHYDRATES: You cannot cut out carbohydrate from your
long-term eating plan. The reason is, when you are working out, you need to be consuming as little calories as possible. So, no rice, no yam, no swallow.
So, if you want to lose weight without working out, you should have a bowl of oatmeal or Quaker oats in the morning. You can have oatmeal with a boiled egg but no honey.
For lunch, you can have moi moi. Moi moi has enough carbohydrates, it has protein and it has little calories. Moi moi is a really good way to portion control and to control what it is that you’re eating.
You should also be careful on the fruits. I know smoothies sound like they are healthy. Some smoothies are not healthy. People use yogurt to make smoothies, but it’s fine if you’re living a healthy lifestyle and you’re working out.
But if you are trying to lose weight without working out, I would advise that you use smoothies that are vegetable-based than sugar-based. Fruits are good for you but you can have a bit more fruits then you are supposed to that your body will not process it in a good way and it will turn to fat.
For snacks, I’ll recommend vegetable also. Having carrots, cucumber, you can also eat red pepper if you can. It’s a bit weird but it works. The whole point of eating these vegetables is that they have the right amount of fiber.
For dinner, just have another wrap of Moi Moi. If you cannot eat it again, you can make pepper soup but you have to make it in a way that is really healthy.
You have to be careful with what you eat because you are not working out. Weight loss is basically, you need to be burning more calories than you are consuming.
