How To Lose Water Weight – Everything you need to know

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

10933233_10100257044357925_1034042459_nThe release of my latest book, “How to Lose Water Weight “, is here. It is my third book, joining my current best sellers,  “Bye Bye Thunder Thighs” and The Thigh Gap Hack

WHO ‘HOW TO LOSE WATER WEIGHT’ IS FOR?

First of all, I need to make it clear that this is not a long term balanced diet and exercise plan. This is a book specifically on how to cut water weight fast for people who have a special occasion or event coming up (wedding, anniversary, reunion, party, photoshoot, video shoot, fitness competition, fight, etc.) in the safest way possible.

Did you know that our bodies are made up of 60 – 70% water? Well, now you know. Because of this fact, the easiest way to lose weight quickly and look great in the short term is to manipulate this major variable that contributes to our weight and body composition (of course we are talking about water).

In my book, “How to Lose Water Weight”, I go over the most popular (and quietly kept secret) techniques and protocols – many of which were previously only known by hardcore fitness industry folks (like bodybuilders and wrestlers). But, I don’t just stop there. I break down timelines, the best foods to tackle bloating and water retention, how to calculate how much you should eat, how much water/salt to consume, how to workout to minimize swelling and maximize calorie burning, and cover non-cosmetic procedures and protocols that will assist you in dropping the pounds.

In the following weeks I will be putting out additional videos on the subjects in the book as well as debuting my workout DVD, “CardioTwist”, a 60 minute workout optimal for burning fat while targeting water retention that is a complement to the book, so be sure to subscribe to my youtube channel so that you don’t miss a thing.  Click on this link and hit subscribe.

Catanzaro is a five foot (5′) tall, 100 pound gymnast, leaving cross fitters, personal trainers, Navy SEALS, and the like in the dust by being one of the first women ever to qualify for the season finals of the obstacle course show, The American Nina.

Back from Vacation – 30 Day Cooking Challenge

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Hello lovelies! In case you were wondering, I’ve been on a 3 week road trip across Ireland and just got back to New York City today.

For the record, I love Ireland and Irish people. I love going on vacation because I walk more then ever when I’m traveling. In New York City, I’m always in my car driving from one destination to the next.

One of the good/bad things about traveling is that you tend to eat out a heck of a lot more and loosen your normal clean/low calorie diet to include treats. Of course, when you eat out you can’t control what goes into the food and you can’t be precise with how many calories you are consuming, and treats tend to contain lots of sugar and be very high calorie.

The great thing about Ireland is that something like 80% of the population are celiacs, so there are tons of gluten free options. 

Generally, I try to stick to the basics (e.g. I got grilled chicken and ate it with a salad at a 7-11 type equivalent called Tesco or Centra or bought soup from the supermarket and heated it up), choose the healthiest/vegetarian meals available on the menu (e.g. in Galway I got the yummiest olive/lentil burger with broccoli/cauliflower and a spicy tomato sauce… and I modified the full irish breakfast by getting egg whites and skipping the sausage/bacon), or cook (a few mornings I made egg white omelets with spinach).

For treats, yes I did indulge a little bit, but I tried to hone it in by opting for aero puddings (so that I would know how many calories I was consuming) and shared desserts with my boyfriend instead of eating the entire thing.

Yes, eating healthy and not gaining tons of weight while on vacation can be tricky to navigate and I was actually thinking about writing my next book about how to do just that. Do you think it’s a good idea? I’d love your feedback on that so leave a comment below.

But back to the main point of this article –

I am going to be doing a cooking challenge where I prepare all of my meals at home for the month of February and I’d like to invite you to join me. You’d be surprised at how much less calories you can consume and how full you can get when you make your own meals. Of course, you’d be entirely shocked at how much fat/weight you lose.

It’s no wonder, as you would never guess how much salt (leading to water retention) and sugar that is unnecessarily added to meals.

I’ll be doing some videos (cardio dance workout as well as some related to the challenge) so look out for that!

If you would like to commit to the challenge with me, pledge your dedication below!

An Open Letter to Critics of ‘The Thigh Gap’

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
Some women and a ton of men think that skinny legs are quite sexy!

Some women and a ton of men think that skinny legs are quite sexy!

Is it wrong to want a thigh gap?

Is it wrong to desire six pack abs?

Is it wrong to desire big biceps?

Is it wrong to want to get rid of a double chin?

Is it wrong to want to get rid of a muffin top?

 

If you followed the flawed logic of the critics who chastise women for wanting to achieve an aesthetic where one tries to get rid of the extra fat on the inner and outer thighs, then you would have answered yes to all of those questions.

But you didn’t, did you?

That’s because there is nothing wrong with people preferring to look a certain way, although it may not be physically appealing to you! And if you are going to tell women to embrace their “strong thighs” and that something is wrong with them for wanting to lose fat – then you should take your own advice and embrace your “soft tummy”, muffin top and/or double chin! Because it’s the same exact thing.

But if I told you something was wrong with you for wanting to have six pack abs or a flat tummy, I would sound absolutely ridiculous, right?

We are all entitled to improving ourselves the way we see fit. As long as one isn’t turning to unhealthy measures such as anorexia and bulimia to meet their body goals, what’s the problem? No one rags on the guys in the gym training every day to build up huge muscles, so why attack the women who are training to have slender and thin bodies?

I hope this open letter to the critics of ‘the thigh gap’ will cause you to think twice before you blast another person seeking help on a fitness message board. And if you are one of those women trying to find the answer for how to achieve the elusive gap or just lowering your overall body fat – I’d like to welcome you into this safe space for others who understand your struggle and can finally help you move one step closer to having the body you deserve!
