Fitness coach Rachel Dillon has shared how she transformed her body into an incredibly enviable one. According to her, she followed six rules to transform her body.
Trust me. It’s hard transforming your body through natural means.
Here is how Rachel Billon did it via the Daily Mail;
An Australian fitness coach has revealed the six rules she follows to maintain her enviable figure including doing less cardio exercises and taking more rest days – after admitting to going to ‘extremes’ to stay fit in the past.
Rachel Dillon, from Queensland, has abandoned the ‘all or nothing approach’ to her health she adopted eight years ago while preparing for fitness competitions which she described as ‘unsustainable’.
In a post to Instagram, Rachel shared a before-and-after photo showing how her body has changed since 2015 to now when she is ‘kinder’ to herself in her diet and exercise routine.
‘I was 100 per cent guilty of following the ALL OR NOTHING approach. Honestly it’s pretty horrible when I reflect back on some of the extremes I used to go to,’ she confessed.
Previously, the fitness guru shared exactly what she eats in a day to feel full and look her best, as well as the nutritional trick she swears by.
Rachel said the easiest way to avoid feeling like you’re depriving yourself is to follow a diet approach called ‘volume eating’.
This means that you focus on filling your diet with foods that are higher in volume (size) but lower in density (or calories).
‘Something I often hear from women when they first start out with a program is that they can’t believe how much food they get to eat on lower calories,’ Rachel posted on Instagram.
‘To stay feeling full, I might opt for four rice cakes with toppings over half a bagel, to fill me up for the same amount of calories.’
On a typical day, Rachel eats around 1,800-2000 calories.
These comprise plenty of protein, complex carbohydrates, leafy green vegetables and high-fibre foods.
‘I focus on adding high-fibre foods to my meals such as wholegrains, vegetables and chia seeds to keep me feeling fuller for longer,’ she said.
