Fitness & Weight Loss Tips from Malia Frey
Did you see Octavia Spencer at this year's Academy Awards? If you saw what I saw, you were probably stunned. She looked amazing! The Oscar winning actress, best known for her role as Minny Jackson in The Help looked slim, trim, confident and healthy.
I had a chance to talk to Octavia this week and I ask her what she did to lose weight. Her answer? She turned 40.
The Weight Loss Wake-Up Call
Octavia said that when she joined "the 40s club," it was her wake up call to start making changes to become more healthy. But, she says, her plan had to be realistic. "It's important to me that I don't set up a plan to fail. If I plan too much, I feel guilty for not getting it all done."
3 Steps to Healthy and Hot at 40
Octavia gave me her plan for slimming down and it involved three main components, her exercise and eating plan
, and SENSA, a popular weight loss program that you may have heard about. On the SENSA program, Octavia sprinkles her food with "tastant" crystals that help her feel full faster and eat less.
Is It Time to Try SENSA?
The SENSA crystals have clearly worked for Octavia, along with her effective plan for healthy exercise and food choices. But is it right for you? SENSA has had mixed reviews from weight loss experts. My recommendation is to read the pros and cons of using SENSA
before giving it a try.
