  • OMG…ur so right!!!����‍♀️������‍♀️����‍♀️������‍♀️����‍♀️����‍♂️����‍♀️������also, could be extremely insulin resistant…might need to do super low carb (no more than 2oz)

  • how do I get skinny legs with weights?
    my fat percentage is 19.6 and my muscle mass percentage is 16.5.
    i’m 156 cm and I weight 40.7 kg

  • You also have to make sure your calories are worth eating. 100 calories of candy and 100 calories of veggies are processed completely different in your body.

  • From previous post……..
    Reasons you’re not losing fat:
    1. Not enough sleep: I try to get to bed around 10-11 pm…and I wake up around 6-6:30 am. Unfortunately, I wake up once a night for no apparent reason. That disturbs a full sleep.
    2. Consuming too many calories: Been watching my calories lately.
    3. Not challenging yourself with your training: Do not train. I eat under the number for my RMR so I should be creating a deficit that way. But I do move around my home. I work at home.
    4. You are not eating enough: I make sure to eat.
    5. Not trusting the process: I think my issue is my hormones. I am 52 and in “that stage of life.”

  • Losing weight is a real struggle for many people. Many people are trying their best but their efforts do not avail much. Honestly, I came here to inspire someone who is going through this. Here is how to build a better body image. We need the confidence sometimes to go about our daily activities. Here are honest tips to help anyone https://youtu.be/r1eGyxitncI
    Thank you so much.

  • I’m so glad that I found your channel! So question for you…I have never had a problem with my weight. I was thin and could pretty much eat whatever ive wanted my entire life. I turned 45 last November and realized that I had gained a considerable amount of weight over the course of a year. I’m now in the process of trying to lose it, however, no matter what I do, it’s not coming off. So my question is…does it become impossible to lose weight when we hit a certain age due to our metabolism slowing down? Am I stuck with this weight forever? Please Dawn…help me! Any advice that you could offer would be so very much appreciated ❤

  • I find it extremely challenging to get in 1,000 calories a day…I don’t feel the need to eat (I’m not getting hungry) and I’m really trying to eat more…any methods?

  • Hey, Yall. I’m Amanda. I’m 16 years old, weigh 245. I’ve lost 5 pounds so far but I want to start a workout/weight loss/fitness group chat on snapchat for accountability, support and motivation. Drop your snap or add me and we can achieve our goals together! (Younger people please. Ages 13-21)

  • Tips on how to do hip thrusts by yourself but you aren’t strong enough to lift the weight on to yourself, and the weights at your gym aren’t big enough to roll the bar over you.

  • The one main reason someone is not losing the weight they want is because of the fact that u are a scam artist. If you promised someone a personal macro program that’s what they should get u are promoting a product that is not real and u stole their money and if they want a refund they need to sign an NDA which dose not mean a thing because your company is already trash garbage. They are not losing weight because u are full of bull shit and you know u need to just refund 100% of every ones money and then just get off yourube.and you apology video was fake ass you u look like a barbie peace Brittany fake ass dawn fitness. Block me if I want u seam to be good at that

  • How many days per week does the booty bible recommend lower body work? The older I get, the more recovery time I need and I struggle with the programs designed by the young kids! Lol

  • I have an important question..I eat like a mofo angle BUT I am a late to bed late to wake up person so I eat breakfast at like noon and then dinner at 11 sometimes 12 a.m. I’m always eating clean and get lots of protein n watch my carbs I’ve always thought as long as you have a deficiet it’s OK say I eat 60℅ of my calories before 8 pm then I eat the rest thru the evening cuz I work nights does that effect my weight even tho I still have a deficet? n if so how come when your intermittent fasting it’s okay to eat before bed n you will still loose weight as long as your in a calories deficet?

  • I just finished a fitness challange where i had to follow super strict body builder diet plan but with low calories. I did not see any results unless i restricted to around 1200 calories a day. I had to do it to get my money back and lose 5 percent body fat in 6 weeks, which i now realize is way too short of a time frame to lose that much. I am now struggling to maintain while trying to eat a more realistic and maintanable diet. I feel like if i eat any junk food at all or any high carb foods, i automatically blow up again. It really sucks! I really like how thr challange jump started a fitness habit but i hate how i cannot eat like a normal person anymore! I cannot go out with friends and eat restaurant food or have an alcoholic drink with them without it showing up as body fat later.

  • I’m 5’8 and 124 lbs and I got my bf% measured and it was 20% yet in my opinion I still look flabby with no muscle tone. I’m definitely gonna try to start lifting heavy. Hopefully that will work! Thanks for the tips!

  • I never got the whole burning more calories than what ur consuming pls help me understand!!!! So My calories a day are about 1500 or more a day!!!?????????? Does this mean I need to burn 1500 calories I’m confused

  • Not rocket science, but very difficult if you’re a food addict or have horrible genes. Simple math if you don’t have a huge physiological or psychological battle daily. Just another point of view. Thank you for your videos, your body is beautiful!

  • mam I just want to know that instead of eating chickens egg if I eat a ducks egg wll anything wll happen as I have heard that ducks egg contains more fat than chickens plz let me knw

  • Brittany, I am in college and want to get healthy and lose weight and I don’t know where to start and how to make sure I fit in a workout with a busy schedule. Do you have advise or can talk about it?

  • I was on a diet for 5 months and went to they gym I lost weight but gained it real quick was it because I wasn’t eating enough? Because I sure wasn’t someone help ��

  • Hi there! Just a qq. How long does your workout last? Warmup and the cardio part? What do you do for cardio? And what level/speed? So many questions, ��. Thanks in advance! You are amazing!

  • I appreciate you having a plus size woman exercise with you in the video. It was honestly very encouraging to see her putting in hard work towards her goal bc it can be very discouraging to have skinny ppl putting out exercise videos with a “perfect” body and your “fat” and struggling. Sometimes we develop unrealistic goals based off of watching the skinny person exercise then if it isn’t met we give up. So its nice to see someone in the same position as you going hard and not giving up, its kind of like you get to be on the journey at the same time. If that makes sense ����

  • I just wanna say thanks for this real tips: there are so many fitness “guru” that say so dumb reasons I personally think, and finally your video is saying simple things that are logic for me! FINALLY someone tells not complicated things
    So thank you, huge huge thanks

  • Thank you Brittany. But i’m a short girl and my body doesn’t burn that much so if i cansum 1200 calories a day i wont be able to even lose half a pound a week. Please help me i don’t wanna crash diet but i also don’t burn that much.

  • but don’t u just lose weight just by lowering your calories, well water helps to. But when your on a surplus and drinking a lot of water it won’t make a difference you won’t lose weight

  • How many calories should I be consuming per day? I’m a 37 year old woman having a lot of trouble losing weight. I’ve already gone to the doctor and the only health issues I have are high cortisol but I believe it’s related to my anxiety. I don’t know how to restart this weight loss journey. It’s very frustrating.

  • Man I probably won’t be able to lose weight until my kids are older:( I haven’t slept through the night in years! #anyothermomsfeelme

  • I personally think counting your macros is more efficient and easier than counting calories because then you’re not getting enough nutrients unless you know exactly what to make to meet those goals. Also, I have a problem not meeting my macros per day. I’m 5’4ft, 189.6lbs, and I’m 19 years old and I use my fitness pal to track my food more efficiently and easily (because I forget throughout the day to track it) I’m also a college student and I don’t want to buy chickfila every day for lunch. For me to lose 1.5lbs per week, I need 1840 calories or 92g of carbs (20%), 184g of protein (40%), and 82g of fat (40%). But I’m still not meeting my calorie/macros. According to my fitness pal, I have 19g of carbs, 32g of fat, and 111g of protein, or 834 calories left to eat. And I dont remember setting my body fat percentage but I have like almost no fat in my quads, I have just have fat in my inner thighs and i feel like it would help to measure my body fat percentage to make my goals more accurate. So basically, my question is how do i meet my macros goals?

  • I think those who are asleep less, are hungry more in general. They are, first of all, awake longer, but second, their normal body regulation is thrown out of whack by a lack of sleep which I believe drives people to be hungrier.

    I’ve truly found that weight loss is primarily due to calories in vs calories out, and both sides of the equation matter and neither are constant.

  • I love all your videos!
    I really need to try to drink more water.
    Could you please make a video that addresses people who are trying to lose weight/ workout and work night shift. I find it very difficult to adhere to a solid routine with my work schedule.

  • I love watching your video! I learn so much and I feel like the info you give I can totally trust ������ you are seriously an inspiration!!

  • At any time we succeed and I am talking about honestly succeed, when we conquer we become much more formidable as individuals, we drive into a completely new phase and after that we are able to improve. This transformation regardless of which it might be and for reasons yet unknown, is what makes you better as a human. Get to grips with the transformation and consequently let’s collectively help make 2018 the most excellent year of our lifetimes!

  • I gone over 400 kcal of my daily intake so I have to go out in the freezing cold to burn it off, but I won’t feel guilty, it will b lifted off my shoulders

  • Katie, thank you! This video could not have come at a more perfect time. I am in my first plateau and I have been looking for videos about it to help me. I love all your tips and I love how you tell me exactly what I can try. Not just drink more water but drink 1 gallon of water. This is so helpful! Im super excited for you to make a HIIT BOOK! i could use it right now because I need to change up my routine. Thanks for your video!!!!

  • Thinking about purchasing the bootie bible but I’m needing to lose 40lbs so should I wait to purchase this until after I lose the weight??

  • Bad idea to drink so much water! you dilute all your potassium and magnesium and your poor kidneys work double!  baddd idea! why you go against mother nature? your heart needs potasium! or you can die from heart attack when you over drink water and dilute the blood.

  • Loved the message of the video!
    Also loved seeing some of Sydney again been there on a short trip a bit over a year ago. Would love to go back so badly:)
    Looking positively radiant, Bailey!

  • What i eat in a day videos are the BEST! Everyone wants to see them and it’s great to have new ideas for food options. Thank you!

  • This helped me pinpoint some things! Ive been lifting alot and Im seeing my muscles building but I dont feel like Im losing fat as quick as I’d like. I dont drink enough water, I dont track macros (the whole concept confuses me!), I dont sleep well because my toddler wakes me all night, and im super stressed from a bad divorce and custody battle im going through. Ack!!! Ill start by drinking more water, thats easy. Thanks for the video! Love all of your videos.

  • Katie, could you make a video about how to figure out your macros for fat loss and how to track them.? that would be amazing. keep up the good work, you are so inspiring.

  • This just helped me so much!! I have been feeling like I’m scared to eat a decent amount of food but I understand now! Thank you so much girl! Your awesome☺️

  • Does anyone have tips to get more water in each day? I’ve tried and tried but I can’t get anywhere near 1 gallon of water down a day. The most I can seem to get is 80 ounces???

  • For two weeks I felt so bloated and kept thinking WHY and how and I realized my boyfriend kept buying these green tea drinks that were LOADED with sodium and sugar and I would drink 2 cans a day thinking it was “healthy” since I stoped drinking them I feel SO MUCH BETTER! �� just had to share that lol great video!

  • Video ideas! 1) things to look for in a trainer before hiring them; 2) how to get started competing/prepping 3) best shoes for lifting/different types of workouts; 4) quick breakfasts, or breakfasts you can prep the night before that are not overnight oats; 5) overview of the different glute muscles and which exercises target which muscles; 6) myths about training abs/getting visible abs; 7) restaurants best for tracking macros and eating clean. Just some thoughts! Love your channel!

  • It’s crazy you uploaded this because I’ve been SUPER down about my progress lately. So I started weightlifting a year ago and I got a personal trainer for a few months so I could properly learn to lift, and he ended up starting me on a powerlifting schedule. I wanted to lose fat, but I ended up falling in love with powerlifting and my progress with that was phenomenal so I kept it up. Of course, I did lose some weight, but I gained it back and more in muscle. I’m happy with my strength, but not how I look. My thought now is to stop powerlifting and go for low weight, high reps and focus more on my eating habits. I’m not sure if you have any input about weight vs reps for losing weight, but I’d love to hear back from you about that.
    Thank you for this video ❤️ I will be sure to impelent your tips and hope to see some progress:) and sorry for the long comment ��

  • How do you weight train when recovering from an injury or have a certain tendonitis? I purchased your booty bible and so excited to start, but bar work aggravates my bicep tendonitis.

  • I love the tips!! I had an idea of something I’d like to see you do; A warm up video I’m going to be starting to lift heavy (excited) and I don’t really know how to properly warm up beyond stretching.

  • I’ve just come across the channel and I’m gonna say I love it. I love general and helpful attitude. These tips are really good. I started working out two months ago and I lost about 6 pounds. My problem is I’m a night owl but I have to wake up early for my kids and I’m also stressed out more than I should do that’s why I’m not losing much

  • So you have to fine a diet for you wow tf. Why can’t you just eat less calories well not like 1,000 but like 2,300 and um lower your fats carbs have to be kinda high on a diet. Keep your strength and have over all energy

  • A little late but you should get a nespresso, if you can. Keurig should replace your machine or wherever you bought it. I would ask, you never know! Love your videos by the way!

  • Keurig has great customer service. If you registered your machine or even if you do now they should warranty it. They replaced mine after 4 months with a brand new machine!

I just wanna know what you think about no carbs at all other then like you mention, yams, sweet potato, etc..

  • Loosing weight is the wrong term! What weight do you want to loose? Water, Muscle? No. We wanna burn Fat! If you trained up its easy to loose weight, but not easy to just burn fat… @Micheal can you go more into the “Burn Fat but not muscle” part of it?

  • Its still amaze me just how some people do not know about Custokebon Secrets despite the fact that many people with it. Thanks to my personal friend who told me about it. I have lost tons of fat.

  • Those lipstick shades are so pretty on you. Your talk was right on point. Mindset is so important, and workouts need to be varied and keep you inspired rather than just going through the motions.:)
