Carmen always used a healthy diet as a means of losing weight. She was a follower of the Mediterranean diet which is mainly about eating less meat and more fruits and vegetables. She then turned into the Macrobiotic diet plan which is about eating more naturally processed food, whole grains and raw vegetables. At a later stage she also endorsed a well known diet supplement, the NV. The NV does not only help you to lose weight but it also makes your hair and nails stronger.

Besides taking care of what she eats, Carmen’s real weight loss secret is in her fitness and exercise routine. Her love for dancing inspired her to create her own fitness program which is based on cardio exercises. Combining dancing and exercising is a great way to lose weight without really understanding it. The fun and joy from dancing bypasses the effort you have to put into the exercises. Besides dancing she also does traditional cardio exercises (running, jogging) and strength training exercises for 3 times per week. As she explains “all you have to do to stay fit is to take it slow, keep working your exercise routine and eat healthy”.

So, Carmen’s weight loss secrets are simple: eat healthy by keeping exaggerations away, perform an exercise routine that you enjoy and can stick to it for a long time and be patient – weight loss takes time and you need to have lots of willpower to make it through.
