At 52, Elle Macpherson doesn’t look like she’s giving up her
famous nickname anytime soon. The supermodel, nicknamed “The Body” by Time
Magazine in 1989 is still turning heads with an age-defying physique. As reported on by Now to Love, her former personal trainer James Duigan reveals some simple
tips to jumpstart your weight-loss efforts and get your best body now.

According to Duigan, it’s totally possible to lose up to 10
pounds in just two weeks with a combination of diet, exercise and some hard and
fast rules designed to take your weight loss to the next level. He emphasizes that the amount of weight loss to be expected should take into account your starting weight and how much you have to lose in the first place.
In his two week diet plan, the celebrity trainer and author
of Clean & Lean recommends women
have a daily caloric intake of about 1,300–1,650 calories, depending on your
starting weight. In addition to a low-calorie diet, he recommends following
these easy-to-incorporate rules:
- Scale down your coffee intake to just one cup a day. After
that, drink green tea to get your caffeine fix.
- To reduce stubborn fat in your upper arms, eat lots of green vegetables or take a fiber supplement. Fiber can help reduce “bat wings,” or
flabby upper arms by eliminating toxins.
- Limit your alcohol intake to four drinks per week. If you
are going to indulge in a 100-calorie glass of wine, skip a snack that day.
- Avoid consuming any bread and/or pasta, as your body
converts wheat to sugar faster than any other grain.
- Don’t swap real dairy for low-fat yogurt. Duigan recommends
eating real butter, milk or yogurt (in small doses) as opposed to reaching for
a substitute like low-fat yogurt, which he says is loaded with sugar and sodium.
Of course clean eating, small portions and exercise are the
keys to his Clean & Lean philosophy, but these easy-to-follow rules can
help you stay focused and on track in these months leading up to summer.
