If you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, fitness expert Jackie Warner explains how you can boost energy and weight loss in her new book, This Is Why You’re Sick and Tired.
If you’re like most people, you feel physically exhausted and emotionally overwhelmed a lot of the time. You may think this is an inevitability of getting older or is due to your hectic schedule.
But Warner, author of the bestselling weight loss book, This Is Why You’re Fat (and How to Get Thin Forever), said you can eliminate chronic fatigue, enjoy better sleep and become happier by making a few small lifestyle changes.
Jackie, a celebrity fitness expert who has helped thousands of people lose weight hundreds of thousands of pounds and get in the best shape of their lives, gives you the tools you need to re-energize your body on the cellular level to activate hormones responsible for vitality and weight loss.
In her three-week plan, Warner breaks down how to detox your body of inflammation-causing toxins in three easy phases:
Phase I (Detox & Prime). In the first phase, Jackie provides a meal plan designed to help you maximize nutrient absorption and supercharge your cells. Warner also introduces an easy workout plan based on light power circuit-training.
Phase 2 (Balance & Burn). In the second phase, Warner outlines a blueprint to help you increase your metabolism naturally, boost mood-enhancing hormones, and improve the quality of your sleep. The eating plan will help regulate out-of-whack thyroid functions and accelerate fat-burning.
Phase 3 (Lean & Mean). In the third phase, Jackie details an energizing meal plan designed to optimize metabolic functioning, boost anti-aging hormones, and prompt the release of the “happy hormones,” dopamine and serotonin.
When Jackie was in college, she ballooned from 118 pounds to 169 pounds, Examiner reported. “I was alone in L.A. and it was a huge culture shock,” said Warner, an Ohio native. “I was depressed and ate junk food every day.”
Instead of giving in to depression and hopelessness, Warner lost 50 pounds in 4 months by overhauling her diet, working out and walking a lot.
“It took four months,” Jackie recalls. “I was ambitious, and knew I wouldn’t get anywhere carrying all that insecurity. So I started walking to school every morning, exercising and eating healthy.”
Warner empathizes with the discontentment her overweight clients feel carrying around those extra pounds. “I was miserable and felt so out of control [at my heaviest],” recalled Jackie, who has her own line of bestselling workout DVDs. “I tried covering up with baggy clothes, but I was insecure from the time I woke up until I went to sleep.”
Now 46, Warner is in the best shape of her life and feels (and looks!) amazing. By following the three-pronged plan in This Is Why You’re Sick and Tired, Jackie is confident you, too, can become your best self—physically and emotionally.
