Erica Lugo’s Weight Loss Diet
When I first started losing weight, I was so confused with the amount of ‘Diet Plans” there were, so I started with basics. I looked up how many calories I should consume for my measurements to be on a weight loss path on MyFitnessPal, and started there.
I knew less calories in, so I started with lean cuisines, smart ones, and if I cooked for the family, I would just portion out what I ate. I stuck with calories at that point. Healthier calories, but calorie counting is where I started. So there was no real “diet” structure other than my calories.
EricaFitLove Healthy Meal Examples:
Steamed broccoli and cauliflower. 6 oz of lean ground turkey. 1/2 cup of rice. Topped with salsa verde!
Erica Lugo’s Weight Loss Workout
When I first started losing weight my routine was mainly cardio 5 days a week for 60 minutes. I would do light weight lifting (small dumbbells) for about 10-15 minutes after because I heard using weights could prevent loose skin.
