I’ve actually recently switched my major, but the nutrition field still really interests me of course!
No, I was planning on being a consultant or a health writer. Writing is my passion :)
Don’t listen to dumb rules like that. When I do cardio I push myself as hard as I can for as long as I can. My heart rate usually gets up to 180+ when I’m really going for it.
Just do what feels right for your body. Push yourself if you can push yourself.
My core is so sore (lulrhyme) it’s ridiculous. I can barely move my torso!

If you want to get rid of tummy fat, ab exercises won’t work. The only thing that gets rid of fat is a good diet and cardio! Stay far, far away from sugar.
If you still have a flat tummy and want to get toned again, here are some exercises, but these won’t show results unless you don’t have fat on your stomach.
For abs I recommend looking up youtube videos and the ab workout for P90x because it’s hard to describe them. I’ll eventually make an ab toning video.
For arms, here’s my video I made. :)
I hope this helped a bit!
Being healthy feels so much better than just being thin.
Don’t worry, I’m the same way! My legs are solid, but I genuinely can barely do just ONE push up. For some reason arms are just something some people never really think to tone until they realize how weak they are!
HERE’s a video I made on arm training! I got most the workouts from a class I took at the gym and P90x!
Wheat is not bad for you if you eat it in moderation. NOTHING is good in excess. Whole wheat is great for you.
All of this of course only applies if you aren’t gluten intolerant.
Grains like bread, pasta, and rice are carbs. Unused carbs get turned into fat. So it’s important to not eat that much carbs/sugars in a day that you’re not doing intense exercise. No/low-carb diets are not the way to go. You need carbs in your diet, definitely. But having bread and pasta several times a day is of course bad for you. Even fruit is a carb. Sugar is a carb.
So basically, toast for breakfast and maybe some fruit and a cup of pasta on a day you exercise is totally fine. But on a day where you don’t exercise and you eat that isn’t so great. Just remember that carbs = energy, and any of it you don’t use will get stored away as fat.
I would never have toast for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, pasta for dinner, and candy for dessert. That is really nothing but carbs. Like any part of your diet, moderation is key!
I hope this helped!
I honestly think that thinking that hard into your diet doesn’t work. It’s impossible to be perfect everyday. Avocado is awesome for you. Yeah, it has fat, but it’s good fat, and it’s good to have that fat every once in a while. Don’t let the calorie counting control your life, let it guide you to make better choices. Just do your best and make sure you’re eating enough.
As for protein, there’s nuts, beans, peanut butter, meat… You might need to add more of these into your diet. Or get some protein powder! It’s great for after a hard work out!
