At the start of this year Aussie actress Rebel Wilson declared that 2020 would be her 'year of health'. She embarked on a new fitness regime in a bid to lose some weight, and her personal trainer Jono Castano has been a huge part of that.
In a recent interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, Jono has shared some of his top tips for weight loss - based on his experience.
"In terms of weight loss, we talk about that high intensity, looking at getting to around that 130 beats per minutes and then trying to burn as many calories as we can with movements that aren't going to hurt you, so that's definitely the best when it comes to weight loss." he said.
"I'd probably say my number one tip that I say to all my clients is: eat to be satisfied, not full. With a lot of people, they tend to overeat and they get confused with being thirsty instead of hungry.
"We need to intake three to four litres of water a day. A lot of people think, 'Oh, I'm hungry', because they're dehydrated, so those two tips would be the key."
"You can't out-train a poor diet and you can't let the weekend derail your fitness goals. It's a key mistake that a lot of people make. They get to the weekend and everything goes down the drain and then basically Monday to Friday, all the hard work that they did is gone."
Jono summed things up into 4 simple points...
- Focus on your nutrition
- Train around five days a week
- Ensure you're recovering well, this includes stretching, sleeping well, making sure you're not stressed etc.
- Make sure you're taking enough supplementation and multivitamins, treat your body like a temple!
So if you're thinking of starting your own fitness journey, or are already on one - this could be some helpful advice!
