One woman is sharing her weight loss accomplishments with the world, and she achieved it with a weight loss pyramid.
After Sam Altieri finished graduate school, she was not is good health and was out of shape. The sleepless nights when she was studying, the lack of exercise, and poor nutrition had all taken a toll. She realized that she had a choice between continuing the bad habits, which would clearly result in things getting worse or to change her ways to get back to a healthy body that was not overweight and was in good physical shape.
Altieri embarked on a life-changing program that had the goal of losing weight at first. Thereafter, she wanted to get physically stronger without “bulking up” in order to have the body she most desired. She fell in love with her workout regime in the gym. Then, she started to help others. This ultimately led to her becoming a physical trainer and the development of the Balance with Sam website. Altieri is now a NASM-certified and PN-certified physical coach working with clients in the Boston area.
As part of her exploration of the best methods and ways to reduce body fat, Altieri discovered many helpful things. PopSugar reported on the visual tool made by her called the “Fat Pyramid”. This diagram shows how to make better choices and the activities to do in order to reduce body fat.
Altieri recommends following these five tips from the Fat Pyramid to lose weight:
- Reduce Calories: The only way to lose fat in the body is to eat fewer calories than the body needs. Lowering carbs is a great way to get rid of fat because excess calories from carbs easily turn into fat.
By following these simple recommendations from Altieri’s Fat Pyramid and making the lifestyle changes necessary, everyone can have a body that is physically fit, healthy, and attractive.
