Less than two years ago, Tiffany weighed 230 pounds—70 pounds heavier than she weighs now. And the truly amazing part? It didn’t take a “fad diet” or even a gym membership to completely transform her body. Instead, her secret was patience (and plenty of dedication!)
“I decided I was going to eat clean and be active,” the mother of two said in one of her YouTube videos. “I changed my mind completely about food.”
Tiffany started by cutting out junk food—such as candy bars and soda—as well as dairy and gluten from her diet. Now, her diet contains plenty of lean meat, veggies, and protein shakes. While she keeps snacking to a minimum, she will occasionally munch on apples with peanut butter, carrots, or another unprocessed food if she’s ravenous. And of course, “drinking a ton of water is my go-to,” she said. Follow these 42 fast, easy tips for weight loss.
Instead of splurging on a pricey gym membership, Tiffany lost the initial 75 pounds with home workouts. Now, Tiffany hits the gym regularly. Here’s how to lose weight without a lick of exercise.
“This is a LIFESTYLE CHANGE,” she writes on her Instagram account. “I didn’t “diet” to get here. I simply changed my mind on the way I treat my body.”
Tiffany’s followers on Instagram and YouTube are inspired by her weight-loss journey, which has motivated her to work even harder. “People message me every single day and tell me that I’m their motivation,” she told PopSugar. “That they’re on their weight-loss journey because I made them believe they could reach their goals. I am setting an example for so many people, and it gives me purpose. I can’t let them down.”
Ready to shed the extra pounds? Tiffany has some advice. “Don’t diet. Eating healthy and keeping your body moving is what works. Starvation diets, diet pills, wraps—they’re all temporary. Solving the real problem will give you the real and permanent solution.”
Plus, “don’t rush it!” Tiffany said. “When you lose weight the right way, it comes off slower. Learn to be OK with that and love the process! It’s a journey, not a destination.”
