Jodie Marsh, the former contestant from Big Brother UK, has made headlines worldwide this week when she created a totally new body and competerd in an amateur bodybuilding event. She trimmed down from a size 12 to a size 5 in 8 weeks.
Her workout and diet secret and how to make it work for you?
She ate “15 egg whites and seven protein shakes a day - cutting
carbohydrates out of her diet entirely.” Jodie claims to have gone from
25% body fat to 10% in the eight week blitzkrieg workout. Jodie worked
out with a personal trainer in Essex, Tim Sharp.
Her workouts were intense and till failure. She reportedly did 3 hours of training doing 2 hours of weights work and 1 hour of cardio.
Her six pack, how did she got it!

The nutrition plan Jodie went on is what’s called a
pre-contest diet. Actually, you can’t go 8 weeks without any carbs. When
you’re dieting for fat loss you have to workout and do your cardio and
eat a high protein diet while lowering sodium and carbohydrates. Sodium
retains water - it’s also an integral electrolyte, so sodium is only
tapered off the last week before the show.

training for muscle hypertrophy - which means putting on muscle while
trying to lose body fat.

Marsh look - carbohydrates are important, that's the good news When it comes to carbs make
sure they’re complex carbohydrates like brown rice and potatoes - that means they release glucose at a
much slower rate than simple carbs. You’ll also wants carbs high in
fibre like legumes. If you eat egg whites or eggs with half a cup of
cooked lentils you’ll have 4 hours of food in you. You don’t need so
much protein. It's a misconception too.
Jodie Marsh trained very unconventional. She worked her weights with 30% of her 1RM and did 4 sets till failure. So training heavey is not necessary to build quality muscle and fat loss.
