Model Lori Harvey appeased fans who asked her about her diet and exercise routine with a video response on Tiktok that sparked a ton of debate.
Lori shared that she gained 15 pounds of ‘relationship weight’ when she started dating Michael and lost weight using a low-calorie diet.
Her goal was to always remain in a calorie deficit while incorporating cardio and pilates.
“So, when Mike and I got together, I gained like, 15 pounds of relationship weight,” she revealed. “And it was horrible. None of my clothes fit…So, I’ve been consistently doing Pilates for like the last year. I’ve done it for a few years, but I’ve been really consistent the last year.”
“When I was trying to drop weight, I was working out like five, six times a week and I would even do, like, for the first month and a half, I think I did two-a-days.
So, what I would do was, I was in a calorie deficit I think I was maybe consuming like 1200 calories in a day max and I wasn’t on like a specific eating regimen I just was trying to do like meat and veggies and like minimal carbs.”
In the comment section, she made it clear that this routine is what worked for her and her routine.
Before y’all start your shit this is what worked for me and MY body..everyone is different so tailor your needs to meet your goals 🙏🏾
Even with that disclaimer, people were pretty irritated about her routine.
One user said:
“Imma piss some of y’all off but idc…Lori Harvey can do this because she doesn’t have a job. She lives a life of leisure and luxury of course she has the time to dedicate to do this.”
“Like someone else mentioned, her 24 hrs are not the same as my 24 hours. You think she’s making her own meals? Cleaning her own house? Washing her own clothes? Cooking for her kids? Doin her own grocery shopping? No one is making excuses but she has more time than the avg person.”
“I disagree. Two-a-days are very possible for people who don’t live a life of leisure and luxury,” they wrote. “30 minutes of fasted cardio in the early morning. One hour of resistance training in the late evening. Meal prep for the week. Not hard.”
Others thought she was extreme but admitted that her routine can be modified to suit your own lifestyle.
“Well she’s a little extreme (that’s why she looks so good) but you can modify it. You could get up and do Pilates, providing you have a machine, & go to work. A few times a week after work, go for a run or go skating, my preference,” replied another.
True, I was just saying that just because someone may not be able to do her exact regimen doesn’t mean they can’t lose weight. There’s other options that can fit people’s lifestyle better.
