TV presenter Gabby Logan is 37 and she’s hoping to keep her figure in top notch shape without having to recur to plastic surgery later on. The TV presenter reveals that back when she was single, she didn’t really live a healthy lifestyle. She didn’t have a healthy diet plan for starters as she used to splurge on food and alcohol, which led her to put on weight. But her relationship with husband Kenny got her to change her lifestyle and replace those bad habits, like eating late and drinking alcohol, with new, healthy ones.
`I wasn’t in the best shape when I got together with Kenny,’ she laughs. `When he first met me he called me “Po”, after the Teletubby. I’d be like “Oi, don’t push your luck!” I wasn’t fat – I was probably only about a size bigger than I am now – but I didn’t feel confident about my body.”
When she finally couldn’t take how unenergetic she became, she decided to undergo a weight loss program and the first step she took as part of her weight loss program was to hire a fitness trainer for weight loss help. Her weight loss fitness exercise program now includes two hours of hard fitness training exercises, two to four times a week. When she occasionally can’t control her cravings, she lets herself cheat on her weight loss diet plan but she just compensates that with by doing more fitness training exercise activities to burn the extra calories.
“I do my fitness training exercise program for two hours twice a week,” she says. “But on a good week I kick up my fitness training exercise program to three or four times.”
Gabby Logan says her fitness exercise program is not limited indoors however. She’s also pretty active with her fitness exercise program outdoors too such as going on a bike ride together with her family. Aside from having a fitness training exercise program, Gabby Logan confesses that she also enjoys acupuncture, revealing that she’s been doing it for the past 14 years because it makes her feel better and that she occasionally treats herself to a glass of wine.
And it’s because she’s gotten herself on the weight loss and fitness exercise wagon early on, it is no surprise that she had no trouble at all with her post baby weight loss. Within a few weeks of giving birth to twins Reuben and Lois last July, ITV football presenter Gabby Logan already had an amazing weight loss that resulted to an enviable size 10. What was her post baby weight loss program secret?
Admittedly, some of the hard work with her weight loss started in pregnancy, when Gabby Logan only consumed an extra 400 calories (200 per baby, as per the recommended intake) per day in her diet plan and followed a special diet plan designed by nutritionist Dr Gowri Motha. She told Closer magazine, “I wasn’t going to use my pregnancy as a green light to gorge myself.” Instead of gorging on junk food, her diet plan consisted of lots of chicken, fruit, veggies and salads.
Gabby Logan also followed a regular fitness exercise program that consisted of cardio exercises such as swimming, yoga exercise, dog-walking and other low-impact cardio exercises with a fitness trainer three times a week throughout her pregnancy.
