  • Love this video and how encouraging you are! Hope you keep giving out advice and sharing your thoughts because, girl, we need them ����‍♀️������

  • yo! Girlfriend!! your energy and personality is SO UNMATCHED!! i effing looooove you!! keep. comin. with. itttttt, Britt!!! Loved this video!!

  • please explain why you don’t eat gluten??? it’s very triggering when people who are healthy just cut out gluten, while I am sitting here with my celiac disease and not allowed to eat any gluten for the rest of my life!!

  • Honestly that point about food at work thing-so, years ago I was trying to figure out why I felt so crappy ALL OF THE TIME-so I did a cleanse and reintroduced foods gradually 1 at a time. Like I’d introduce soy after 28 daysy minimum with no alcohol, soy, gluten, caffiene etc. all the common things that give people digestive issues. Well I found out over the course of doing this for a year that 1) soy makes me retain huge amounts of water weight and interacts with my pill/throws my PMDD off 2) I’m super gluten intolerant and can’t eat it period now and lastly I am lactose intolerant. So prior to figuring all of this out I’d eat ‘whatever” as she was referring to…now I’m that “weird woman” that cooks and bakes everything and always has to bring my own food otherwise I starve lol. I can’t tell you how grateful I am. In the past I used to hate how my body was but didn’t want to feel horrible any more so I just wouldn’t cave. Feeling so much pain and discomfort is a huge motivator honestly. With that said, thing about how foods MAKE YOU FEEL and really focus on eating stuff tha tmakes you feel great. I love carbs, I eat whole foods carbs, nothing refined. I also eat high healthy fat and super high protein. You do not need to reduce fat and carbs. Eat what makeks you feel amazing!!!! I don’t know a single person eating processed food that says it makes them feel amazing. We eat convenience food because it tastes good and /or we are lazy and do not want to structure our time more wisey to put our nutrition first. If that means no social life, no video games, no time for yourself, you make that choice. I choose to cook and bake as it’s cheap, and I feel like I get more out of life even though I have less time for everything else except sleep. Sleep is always number one ;). So just keep that in mind every time you tell yourself “But I don’t have time i have to put my 17 children to sleep, feed the husband, work 70 hours a week etc.” If you’re taking care of anyone else and not yourself, you need to put yourself first because without your health being top notch everything else will suffer. You will burn out. Been there, done that. Anywho, I hope my rant helped to put health and fitness into perspective. Everyone can do it. Start small. First step is telling yourself you are worth the time.:)

  • THANK YOU!!! Moving to Flagstaff this Sunday and feel like this week will be perfect for new beginnings and new habits. You’re my guru now. ��������

  • I just found this video, but it is so incredibly helpful and so important to spread this message. You are amazing, keep it up girly!

  • This has really motivated to me to continue losing weight, I used to be 73kg like a month ago, and im down to 67-68kg. It’s not much but it’s still a lot for me.
    Gaining 1-2kg has been discouraging though, but seeing you gain weight and lose weight again, and continue to tone your body has motivated me much more.

    I’m hoping I’ll be able to get my tummy more defined by the end of the year

  • My face when the first frame of the video comes up and Luca is sitting there literally glowing from the inside out being the most beautiful human I’ve ever seen ��������

  • Great tips Janine. Baby steps is a big one for my clients. Choose a few things to change first and master then move on to the next ones to change.

  • i have tried to lose weight and i still am. this video is really helpful but the only thing is that im in my early teens and i still live with my parents and i have siblings so theres always some type of junk food in the pantry. help jeanine! im dying here.

  • hi katelyn! i’m 14 and i’ve been trying to loose weight for a while now but nothing has worked:( so what do you think i should try? bye i love your channel sm ��

  • I came across your channel and im so happy that I did!!! you are so cute and genuine!! im from Dallas tx too!!! I am looking to start working out so I am looking forward to your fitness vids!!:)

  • How do you start going to the gym when you don’t even know what you need to start doing it’s so scary all the weights squats and even doing a work out it to me feels like I’m lost

  • Talks about cutting out sugar while eating a smoothie. A smoothie isn’t a balanced lunch choice. It’s better than a milkshake but a lot of the fiber and vitamins are blended out. They are overhyped believe me. I used to start my morning with one everyday and I actually gained quite a bit of weight. You’re better off with a bowl of oatmeal with some nut butter and a banana.

  • Make yourself a workout schedule and try to vary your workouts. A workout buddy will also hold you accountable and make working out fun!

  • I love your health philosophy. Such a healthy mindset. it took me so long of yoyo dieting to find intuitive eating and realize I should focus on adding more healthy foods to feel better rather than just starving myself all day and binging at night. I really wish more you tubers had your mindset. It is the perfect way to be thinking and it is such a good influence for others. You should be very proud of the positive mind set and example you are setting for women.

  • I was literally in the exact position that you were talking about. I’m 20 & I moved back home with my parents in the summer of 2019 and literally have been up & down with my health habits and just now am living a lifestyle that makes me feel good and happy! You are so inspirational and I honestly love all your social media platforms! Keep doing what you do! ����

  • Can you do a video on how to start your fitness journey for teens? I really enjoy working out and I do a lot of sports, but I always feel like crap in the off-season when I’m not doing anything. My older sister has a gym membership, but because I am only 15 I can’t drive myself to the gym. I was wondering if you could do a video on how I can start working out st home until I get my liscense and maybe even add some reccomendations on how teens can eat healthy at home and make do with the food that their parents buy because I can’t buy my own food yet.

  • I’ve always tried to make every change at once, and if I failed I gave up immediately. Lately I’ve been trying small changes every day, and once I master those I move on to the next. Little steps are the way to go!

  • Finally!!! I waited this when you post it on instagram im really really excited.
    I really really need to watch this
    Thanks for posting this and i really really love your videos. ��

  • I sincerely needed this!!! I am struggling so much right now with dieting yet I am so unhappy with my body and health. I’ve never been this heavy or out of shape. But I cannot get myself to easily change my lifestyle �� so thank you for this encouraging video!

  • i love how you’re so humble and so inspiring this video actually did help me alot since i’m lost on what my fitness routine is looking like thank you jeanine and keep on doing what you do the best to inspire more people

  • Such perfect timing! I struggled this week and didn’t work out although I was eating semi healthy, it’s encouraging to see this! Thanks so much love ❤️

  • I finished my freshman year and I found myself in a place very similar to how you were and you were the person who motivated me to go and begin my chapter 1. You are so inspirational and I wanted to thank you for this!


  • I love these tips and I watched you 6 week body transformation and that has helped a lot thank you so much �� PLC for the win �� I go to PLC Coomera and love it

  • I found your tik tok profile and then it linked your channel: I love all your social medias and your message hits so different ����

  • I respect u so much i can tell how hard you work on editing and filming and your videos always come together so nicely, congrats on 50k u deserve it!!! ❤️

  • Love this, I have already started my fitness journey but this video really helped me that way I can encourage other people to start there’s!(:

  • Well done on keeping up the ‘standing back up’. As an athlete I would get very frustrated when I got injured and you can nearly hear the muscle seeping out under your door as you sleep at night. But then I realised that time and again I was just standing back up and getting fit again. So well done again.
    One piece of advice…on your squats….make sure your knees do not go out over your toes. Your lower leg should not move at all during squats. Do them sideways in a mirror until you can get it and once you have the feel of it you will never go back. Keep up the good work.

  • I have been struggling with an eating disorder. I am so tired of being obsessed with food. I want to be healthy and this is the beginning. I want to start fresh and finally achieve a HEALTHY and fit body.

  • This is my goals�� I’ve been tracking macros etc for the last 3 years I hate it I hate having to weigh everything etc it’s no way to live I’m scared to get rid of the app because I won’t know how many calories I’m eating but I still will be exercising so as long as I’m staying healthy it’s all I want ����

  • i’m in a weird place with my fitness journey, i feel like, for lack of better term i’ve “let myself go” but your videos inspire me so much and not only that but they also teach me that life is about balance and having freedom with food, thank you xx

  • Thanks to you, I enjoyed this video and wanted to share this related topic that was interesting to me with your dear ones. It may be very appealing to you.

  • Hey Soph I have a question: I do bodyweight training, HIIT training and sometimes I go for a walk but I do not lift any heavy weights but somehow my body needs soooo much time to change even tho I am in a calorie defecit what would you suggest? Nice vid! <3

  • I thought about getting your Gym Plan but I’m so intimidated by gyms and have no one who’d go with me. I hope I’ll find the courage soon.

  • This was great to watch! I appreciate the end messages most and just how simple you’ve outlined it. I’ve overthought and beat myself up about fitness for a long time and I’ve been feeling pretty low recently, so thank you for sharing and uploading. I’m ready to make the rest of 2019 count!

  • I am experiencing so much of the same things in your journey with both mental health and dropping out of school! It is really crazy how similar our experiences are. A question I have is what do you suggest is the best way to know what to eat for your macros? How did you educate yourself on that or did someone help you?

  • Love your energy and your healthy outlook on lifestyle/health. It’s very easy to get caught up in what we see on Instagram and put so much pressure on ourselves to look a certain way. But your outlook is so inspiring. Enjoy life but do your best to make healthy choices and work out by doing what you like (yoga, lifting, running, etc).

    I have always struggled with my body image. I’ve been very thin my entire life and hearing “why dont you eat something” and “only dogs like bones” used to hurt me and make me so anxious to go to the gym. I’ve become a lot happier/comfortable in my own skin. I may not be able to lift as much as most people but hey I’m trying and making progress to feel strong. Thank you for being a great supporter to both those who are already fitness experts but to us who are new to this. Keep doing you boo!

  • I just made the closest thing to a home gym that I could. I give you so much credit for going to the gym. I’ve tried for years to get comfortable and no go. No biggie. I’ve started really training hard at home and I’m seeing great results, even while pregnant ��

  • i love what you said about intermittent fasting because i’ve been trying it, but sometimes i go to bed hungry. you honestly make me feel a better:))

  • One piece of advice is to not think of food as a reward and working out as a punishment. If you “cheat” it’s just a part of the new lifestyle!

  • Someone please reply because I need help:( I started working out a week ago. I do some cardio, then I weight lift and do resistance training. I changed my diet as well. I eat cleaner and I try to fit in all of my macros. Since then, I have gained 4 pounds!! I’ve been eating cleaner and working out but I still managed to gain weight? I feel like I look bigger as well, so I’m extremely disappointed. This is kind of killing my motivation to continue working out. Does anyone have any thoughts?

  • You have no idea of how much this video helped me, it gave me the motivation I needed. Now I know where to begin, than you so much! ������

  • I really enjoyed your video because of how relate-able it is. You show that losing weight is not a one time change but a life style ��������

  • Do you have any tips about gym bullying and intimidation? People who are fit tend to be rude (jerks) in the gym. Of course, not all of them, but definitely a few of them.

  • Hi love your videos! Could you tell me whats the name of the app that you are using to balance your diet? Also could you suggest me books to read about self confidence? Thank you! You are the best

  • I love that idea. Get comfortable in the gym. Go 5 to 10 minutes everyday. I love it. Haven’t heard anyone else give this advice. But I love it. Wow Baseball hat is a great idea too. Thank you girl. Thank you.

  • how old were you when decided to lose your weight? I asked because I am 30 and I think My body becoming burning fats slowly… this really disappointed me

  • I love how realistic and reassuring you are �� you make me feel like I can do it omg. Thank you so much! I’ll be following you from now on. Xoxoxo

  • motivation is definitely a huge thing, I was never into sports or working out or anything like that until last year when I started playing lacrosse, and I’ve found that I enjoy working out so much more now because I’m doing it to get stronger and play better

  • OK YASSSSS so this came at the perfect time, since I wanna return to eating healthy and working out because I stopped, yes sis in Christ, thank you so much Jeanine love you girly!!:) <3
