BTW | SHOW - Lifestyle Jules - Health For Wedding Day


Steven: All right so we are here in the workout room which is not only your workout video space, but just where you kind of practice what you preach right? 

 

Julie: Absolutely.

 

S: So tell us a little bit about your perspective on fitness and how that plays into a wedding. 

 

J: Ok well first of all, I have my degree in exercise physiology. I was a chubby girl growing up and started at 15 years old working out and wound up majoring in exercise physiology so I love it, it's my passion, I believe in it, it makes you feel better and it's really a life long journey, you shouldn't think about it just for the wedding, just saying. We want you to get there for your wedding, that's a great motivation but I also want you to learn how to maintain it and that's very doable and it's a lifestyle change it's not about "I'm going to lose 20 pounds for my wedding" and then you go on your honeymoon and you gain it all back and that was all she wrote. 

 

S: Cause that totally didn't happen on my wedding haha. I looked pretty good for my wedding and then like yea within a year I was like "Oh well I'm back where I started I guess". 

 

J: And I think that's what most people do so when you hire me you know you are going to get me to walk you through it and coach you long-term and so you asked me Steven "ok when should we start thinking about this". There's never a time that's too soon to start thinking about it, whether you have a wedding or you don't have a wedding but you got to start. So it's all about making small changes and keeping those changes instead of trying to rush and lose 20 pounds in one month, "oh my gosh, my wedding is next month how am I going to lose 20 pounds?" It's all about just slowly making changes, getting into a workout regime, really learning how to be a little bit more aware of the foods that you are eating, it's not a diet. 

 

S: Right. 

 

J: And so I can coach you on all of that.

 

S: For sure. Well and like one thing I noticed too that we haven't talked about yet is like people have these like over idealistic goals about where they're going to be and like addressed altering doesn't happen overnight, it takes like, as far as I understand it, weeks. So, I mean I think you would be able to really help guide people with like a realistic plan is and be able to like really help them and keep them motivated cause I mean people often eat when they are stressed and a wedding is stressful so if they have someone like you to push them and be like "no like you can do this" and I think that is helpful. 

 

J: Right and also becoming accountable now there's so many great apps out there; my favorite app is My Fitness Pal and just putting your food calories in it, into this app, you see and you're accountable for what you have left and so you can say to yourself "ok I have eaten all my calories for today, am I eating case I'm stressed of or am I eating because I'm really hungry" and you start looking at it a little bit differently than "oh I'm hungry I'm just going to go eat" verses "ok I ate all my calories, am I really hungry or am I stressful eating and if I'm stressful eating, what could I do different right now instead of putting food in my mouth that would make me feel better" and or you can eat, there are foods that don't have calories that you could munch on like pickles. Though pickles do have a lot of salt so we were just saying about, but that would be, so the day before your wedding you probably don't want to eat a jar of pickles right because you'll retain more fluid and maybe look a little puffy.

BTW | SHOW - Lifestyle Jules - Last Minute Health For Weddings


Steven: Maybe someone's watching this right now and you're like "I'm getting married in a week and I don't have time to like get a six pack now". What would you say to someone like that like what's some foods they can have that maybe are like slimming or at least help with like no water retention and things like that that can help maybe tighten things up for them.

 

J: Get rid of the carbs, get rid of the refined sugars, get rid of the pastas, get rid of the bread, and get rid of the salt, and stick with your vegetables and your protein, even get rid of the fruit. Fruit has a lot of sugar so even though we think we are eating something great, it does have a lot of great benefits to it but it also has a lot of sugar so get rid of all the sugary foods and stick with your proteins and your vegetables and you know that's something and count your calories. Calories in, calories out, I hate to say that but ten times your body weight today is the calories that you can eat to lose weight.

 

S: Really so low salt foods, low sugars can help be slimming I mean and like I've talked about, when I've interviewed other people it's like because you're having a photographer following you around all day getting those close ups, the eyelashes shots, the makeup shots, like different angles, even just losing a couple of water weight pounds is going to go a long way to have you know better jawlines and stuff like that.

 

J: Definitely helps. But not only that too, a lot of those foods can make your skin very sensitive as well so a lot of times breakouts are related to having those refined sugars tend to make you breakout so we're talking about that camera being close up to your face and having breakouts, get rid of those refined sugars.

 

S: Awesome. Cool. Now we are going to go check out the most ridiculous closet which is a woman's dream, not my dream, but I'm sure someone's excited, but a gargantuan amount of heels, haha, so lets go check that out and we'll learn some fashion tips.
