1. Light fasting

Ella Chen occasionally practises a two-day light fasting method that aids in detoxification. She chooses to consume only vegetable juice made from natural ingredients.

During periods of strict weight control, Ella has experimented with the “day fasting method” for four days, consuming only black coffee and lemonade. This approach promotes rapid detoxification and boosts metabolism, aiding in her successful weight loss.

However, it is important to note that long-term implementation of fasting can have adverse effects on overall health. So, if you’re considering trying this approach, be sure to consult with a dietitian for proper guidance and support.

Green latte has long been hailed as a weight loss elixir in Western circles and Ella incorporates it into her diet. She also adds probiotics to her drink, which helps promote digestion and maintain a balanced nutritional intake.

The ingredients includes apple, cauliflower, kale, half a pineapple, a small bowl of nuts, a cup of soy milk, and a dash of lemon juice. This nutritious and filling drink serves as a replacement for dinner, aiding in fast and effective weight loss.

3. Cooking rice with Evian mineral water

Ella learned from her past experiences that trying to lose weight by reducing sugar through an inappropriate method has led to several health issues, such as cold hands and feet and Oedema (swelling caused by fluid in your body’s tissues).

After consulting with a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner, she realised that her previous weight loss approach of eating only salad and chicken has caused her body to become colder and retain more moisture, adversely affecting her metabolism.

Following the advice of the TCM practitioner, Ella’s meals now revolve around rice as the main food, accompanied by vegetables and meat. Additionally, she ensures to finish dinner before 5.30pm in the evening.

She also uses Evian mineral water to cook her rice, as she believes that the quality of water you use for cooking is important.

It appears that these changes she’s made to her diet have worked; Ella shed 3kg in weight after trying this method.

4. Drink 2,000ml of water everyday

Following her other weight management tips, staying hydrated is also another important part of it. Ella personally practises drinking 2000ml of water everyday. Not only does it boost metabolism and prevent water retention, but it also enhances the feeling of fullness and helps curb cravings. Plus, it also contributes to maintaining a healthy and radiant complexion.

5. Regular exercise

In addition to her diligent dieting efforts, she prioritises regular workouts to complement her weight management journey.

She incorporates gym workouts, core training exercises like planks and dance workouts into her routine. Ella emphasises the effectiveness of abdominal breathing techniques from yoga for toning the abdomen.

Through her dedication to continuous exercise, she has achieved and maintained her enviable waist, showcasing the importance of physical activity in her weight management journey.
