Melissa Mccarthy rose to fame for being overweight and hilarious in a similar fashion as Zach Galifinakis a few years back. Since Melissa has become a bona fide movie star – the 44-year-old actress has wanted to change her health.
While Melissa is loved by millions of fans as the overweight and hilarious actress – she has always known her weight was unhealthy and she had to make a change.
Since the start of 2015 Melissa has made some very positive changes in the health department – and the scales have reflected her hard work!
Melissa Mccarthy has lost an incredible 50 lbs. thus far in 2015 – and she isn’t’ done yet!
Melissa actually has a goal of losing 75 lbs. total this year, and 100 lbs. total and has consistently been losing 5-10 lbs. per month for the entire year.
What is Melissa’s weight loss secret? We had a chat with her celebrity diet coach and she has recently revamped her diet, but that doesn’t mean she is starving herself! In fact – Melissa has been eating like crazy and still enjoying incredible weight loss results. How is this possible?
Let’s first take a look at 5 Rules Melissa has followed that allowed her to lose an incredible amount of weight in less than a year. Anyone looking to lose 50 plus pounds can learn a ton from this.
Melissa Mccarthy Weight Loss Blueprint – 5 Rules to Follow
- Fiber First
Instead of counting calories and being obsessed with eliminating carbohydrates, Ms. McCarthy’s diet coach instilled a different mindset. He said that too many people are obsessed with the concept of starving themselves and always telling themselves what they “can’t have.”
Instead of this mindset always tells yourself to feed your body with high fiber foods. This changes the weight loss ball game completely! Melissa has been snacking on fruits, veggies, nuts, nut butters, and whole grains constantly throughout the year.
Although these foods contain carbohydrates, they are loaded with fiber, vitamins, and minerals that help boost her metabolism and keep her full without empty calories.
- Low Insulin for 12 Straight Hours per Day
There may be some truth to low carb dieting after all – but it doesn’t mean that you have to eliminate carbohydrates for the entire day. Melissa made sure that she kept her insulin levels low for 12 straight hours every single day so she could lose weight quickly.
Low insulin levels = faster fat loss because your body enters “ketosis” and taps into your body fat for energy. This is the goal when you are trying to lose weight rapidly.
Since Melissa sleeps 7 hours per night, all she had to do was consume a diet of high protein for the last 5 hours before bedtime to keep her insulin levels low for 12 straight hours.
This is the magic recipe for weight loss!
- Hydration over Hunger
One of the biggest changes that Melissa made with her approach to losing weight efficiently was every time she was hungry she would first drink a tall glass of water with lemon.
Water will expand in your stomach and make you feel full – so you will automatically consume up to 200 calories less per meal every time you do this trick.
While 200 calories per meal may not seem like much – this can add up to over 20 lbs. of extra weight loss over the course of a year.
- Supercharged Metabolism
Melissa’s diet coach made sure that she improved her metabolism so she would further enhance her weight loss results.
This meant that every day Melissa enjoyed 2 cups of hot green tea and took powerful all natural diet pills (Garcinia Cambogia) with her breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The synergistic effect of the green tea and the best all natural weight loss pills (Garcinia Cambogia) took her fat loss results to the next level and no doubt helped her go from an average weight loss story into one of the best stories of the year.
When your metabolism and energy levels are high it is much easier to get in consistent workouts and speed up your fat burning around the clock.
- Protein Powerhouse
Since protein is the most thermogenic of the 3 macronutrients – Ms. Mccarthy made sure to consume at least half of her calories from high quality protein sources.
This kept her blood sugar levels low throughout the day and fueled her hard working muscles for her daily physical activity which included biking, kick boxing, and even martial arts to prepare for her fighting scenes in the movie Spy.
Melissa consumed lots of grilled chicken, organic eggs, wild caught fish, fat free turkey, egg whites, and lean grass fed beef throughout her weight loss transformation.
