Weight loss star can be hard, but help is coming in the form of Myleene Klass, the pop star turned reality TV babe turned fitness inspiration for thousands of women.
The 39-year-old mother-of-two is hoping to bring her fitness and weight loss knowledge to everyday, busy women across the UK.
The svelte and toned star revealed her top weight loss diet tips with Express.co.uk – including her favourite food.
Myleene said: “You’ve got to be realistic. I try and move and I make sure that I watch my portions, that’s what I have to careful with.”
“Filipino culture is minimum two plates, sometimes go up for a third just to show that you’ve enjoyed that meal. But that can play havoc.”
As well as watching her portion size, Myleene also watches out for one food group.
She said: “Definitely watch your carb intake if you want to lose weight.
“Don’t cut it out all together but because then you only have to look at a potato and you doomed when you go back on them.”
For weight loss the star said: “The goal is to create a calorie deficit.The aim of the game is to therefore keep active.
“Resistance training instead of cardio not only uses up calories while you workout, but also demands more energy to repair your body once your session is over.”
Myleene’s favourite food is chicken, which is handy as the meat is healthy and lean – and good for weight loss.
She said: “I’m obsessed with chicken. Grilled with mustard, stick it in a pie do anything with chicken, put it in a salad.”
Myleene is launching her first ever fitness programme, MyBody by Myleene.
She said: “I wanted to create a programme that doesn’t just show women what moves to do, but to be a long-term guide – it is hard work but it is maintainable, not a lifestyle overhaul but small manageable changes to help women stay fit and see real results. This isn’t just about weight loss.
“I wanted to make women feel strong and confident in their every day lives.”
