How good is Tae Bo, when used in moderation, good for weight loss? Do you know anyone who's lost weight from this? What were their experiences?

The key to weight loss is a proper diet. It doesn't matter if you workout 5 times a week but if you eat garbage you're not going to lose weight. However, I have clients that have lost weight without doing a single mile of jogging.

What do you mean by you have clients? Are you a personal trainer? Is that your photo btw?

Yes, I work as a model and a personal trainer. That picture is yours truly. Banme has another picture of me on her avatar.

Btw, it seems as if you must work pretty hard as a model? Who do you model for?

No, I met Banme here actually.

I don't model for one particular company as I'm signed with a modeling agency in Toronto. I've done work for well over a dozen different companies - runway, music videos, and print. I don't work too hard actually hehehe. I do competitive bodybuilding, which I think is harder to prepare for, but the modeling is a bit more prestigous.

So do you enjoy being a model? And you said that the quality of food is important: What kind of food do you eat?

And how often (and for how long) do you exercise? You are in excellent shape.

It's definately fun stuff. It's really cool to see how you see yourself and then how a finished product looks and you think, "wow, that's me."

I workout 4 times a week for about 45 minutes each time. We got hard on those 45 minutes though. Usually straight sets only have two minutes rest in between and we do lots of supersets with no rests inbetween each excercise and a minute at the end of each set. So we're in and we're out but don't talk too much.

It's funny because we go in to the gym and there's people there and we finish and the same people are still there.

We as in my training partners and my own trainer. (Yes, I am a personal trainer but I also have my own trainer). I don't really spend time with other models, since my agency is in Toronto and I'm from Ottawa 4 hours away.

I do streght training which is weight lifting. I only do cardio when I'm cutting for a photoshoot or a competition.

I am so impressed with you. Why can I have the type of self-discipline that you have?

It's just a matter of applying yourself. If you really want it, then you'll do it. If you cant' do it, you never really wanted it. Know what I mean?

yeah. I do. I guess that sometimes you want something but you feel as if you can't have it. So you don't try for it because you feel as if your effort will be wasted. That's kind of what i'm feeling.

so coming back to the topic, I beleive that tae bo will help you lose the weight, but you need proper diet and do tae bo 3-4 times per week. I lost about 30 pounds on tae bo, I really enjoyed doing it so I sticked to it.

Freddy: you look fantastic!!!!
