Being a chef is not an easy task, especially if you are a woman and you want to maintain a slim figure.
Rachael Ray used to be a woman with curvy body and she had never had a skinny figure. But having once appeared in new look she impressed almost everyone. The famous and successful chef lost weight and now looks even younger than before.
But how did she manage to lose weight having such job?
As Rachael herself says, she didn’t keep any special exhaustive diet. Due to her job she can’t deprive herself of eating tasty and sometimes harmful for figure food. So she had to find an alternative approach – physical training.
These were workouts at the gym that helped Rachael to get rid of extra kilos.
Surprisingly, the famous chef didn’t come to very hard exercises. She chose moderate activities such as running or jogging, because she doesn’t like following circuits. However, she didn’t neglect elliptical training at the gym.
Besides, Rachael Ray had a golden rule – she made Sunday a day off. She said that she needed to have a rest and to give her body time for recovering from training. As we see, such system was rather effective.
When you crawl home after an exhausting training, your condition is much worse than before a visit to the gym: you have damaged muscle fibers, you have exhausted the energy reserves are exhausted your nervous system. And only if you give your body the necessary rest and food, something good happens.
During recovery, your body again rebuilds the damaged fibers, makes muscles bigger and stronger (muscle hypertrophy or tissue restructuring), restores energy reserves with some excess (overcompensation), and the nervous system learns to better recruit motor units (neural efficiency). In short, everything good happens when you do not exercise.
