Healthy Habits: How I Lost 55 lbs in Two Months

I've been getting a lot of inquiries and questions about my recent weight loss and how I dropped all of my baby weight so quickly.  Therefore, today's post will feature the workout plan, eating habits, and a few other tricks that helped me lose weight very quickly.  However, I'm not promoting that this exact plan will give you the same results because we are all different when it comes to our bodies.  As most of you may know, I had a beautiful baby boy about 6 months ago.  I loved the whole experience of being pregnant and I wouldn't take it back for the whole world.  While I was pregnant, I gained about 45 lbs.  I was still exercising up until my 7th or 8th month, but I was also eating everything and then some in my last month.  After I had him, I was determined to lose all of the baby weight but I wasn't in a rush to drop it because I knew it would take some time.

Since I couldn't exercise for 6 weeks following his birth, I did mild yoga and walking.  Then I purchased the Insanity workout program, which is how I lost most of the weight.  I have been recommending this program to all of my friends because it really helped me.  It consists of circuit training with resistance using your own body weight.  I also took Herbalife supplements and shakes, wore a belly band while working out, and remained very strict about my diet.  I reduced my calorie intake, no sugar, low carbs (whole grains only), very little red meat, only drank water, and no junk food or fried food.  Now, I treat it as more of a lifestyle.  I don't take Herbalife supplements or shakes anymore, but I still use Insanity every day and follow a healthy nutrition plan.  I ended up losing all of the baby weight I gained, along with 10 more lbs.  Now I am in the best shape of my life and I've never been so happy.  I did it not only for myself, but so I can be healthy for my son as well.
