Bailey Swaydan booked a professional photographer for a photoshoot, after she received the photos back, she was amazed at how much bigger she looked than she thought she did. The photos served as a starting point for Bailey to start lose weight and get healthier.
“I wanted to look better and especially feel better about myself.” So she adopted a new diet, limiting carbs, her biggest weakness and started a gruelling training regime that would transform her body and help her lose over 50lbs of fat in 6 months.
Find out below exactly how Bailey did it and more! Enjoy!

Bailey Swaydan Weight Loss Diet:
Meals for a day for me would be breakfast: 2 eggs, and fruit. Lunch, grilled chicken salad, fruit. Dinner, would be grilled chicken or fish, with cooked veggies. I don’t snack that often but when I do I eat fruit. Apple, grapes, watermelon, pineapple. Literally any fruit. The types of vegetables I eat are zucchini, squash, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce etc I eat pretty much any vegetable but potatoes. That’s the one vegetable I cut out. Veggies are good because they have so little calories and they fill you up, you can eat more veggies because they are usually super low in calories!
