The key to flat abs is striking a balance between diet and exercise.
That’s according to celebrity fitness trainer Jeanette Jenkins.
The founder and president of The Hollywood Trainer Club says “if you are eating 2,000, 3000 calories a day but you’re doing like a kick-butt 1,000 calorie workout, you are still not going to have that calorie negative.”
Jenkins, who has worked with stars such as Pink, Alicia Keys, Amber Rose, Camilla Alves and Serena Williams, reckons an average sized woman usually has to “stick to somewhere between 1200 to 1500 calories a day for weight loss and even just for everyday life. If you are eating more than 1500 calories a day, chances are you’re going to gain weight.”
“The average meal size should be for an average woman between three to five hundred calories,” says Jenkins.
Once your correct calorie intake has been worked out, Jenkins says it’s not just about cardio exercises, “you should still train those core muscles in specific core exercises.
“Just think logically. How much of your core are you using when you sit on a recumbent bike and cycle? Not too many. Versus when you are up and either hiking, or hill climbing or running or sprinting. You are getting a lot more core rotation and movement in there. Or standing up right on a stair stepper versus leaning on it. So all you people who lean on the machines at the gym, you are no longer using your abs and you are doing yourself a disservice.”
Jenkins is one of Hollywood’s most sought after health and fitness experts with over 25 years’ experience.
The Hollywood Trainer DVD Collection includes 18 different titles with various full-body exercise videos.

The first day of the Clutch Life 24/7 Trainer introduces you to how you’ll perform the workouts. We’ll go through the dynamic warm-up, the stretch series, and the strength circuits together! That’s seriously Clutch.

You can (and should) scale the workouts to fit your level, but you should never scale so much that you don’t feel challenged. Every workout should feel difficult. Your heart should be racing and you should be sweating. Push yourself as much as you can. Rest when you must, but don’t take more than a minute or two to catch your breath.

The Clutch Life Trainer doesn’t end with these workouts. You need to carry the same willingness to work with you into your kitchen and everyday life. No, you don’t have a super-specific diet to follow, but if you follow the flexible game plan I’ve laid out for you, you’ll see fantastic results in your physique, performance, and overall health.

The Clutch Life is all about putting your best foot forward every single day.

    All everyone heard was 300 cal !! She said 3-500 omg 😳 y’all can do it ! Fish and steak and chicken baked with a vegetable will get you there , wild brown rice is good on workout days or sweet potatoes 🍠
    I’m guilty of leaning on cardio machines 😖

  2. Rubaab khan

    Thanx for sharing great information

  3. Lacey Stitt

    I like her, she’s funny and real and does great workouts. But there have been times that I was sticking with 1500 calories a day and losing weight and then plateaued. Once I added another 200-250 calories I would start to lose again because I wasn’t eating enough for how much I was workout out. You can’t over generalize too much everyone’s different

  4. Stephanie Sebastiao Andrade

    I love love love all her workouts!!! I'm a mom 3 yung boys and I garante that if you follow her lead and eat sensibly you definitely see results…
    Energy,strength, and you just feel good about yourself. 🥰

  5. Samiches Kumar

    Bruh after ten minutes on the stair master it’s impossible to not lean on the machine. By then my calf’s are burning so bad that I can’t even care about my abs.

  6. sanjida shomee

    I love her. I lost 5 kilos following her workout

  7. Katherine Pecore

    This one-size-fits-all advice is terrible. Active women who aren't petite are going to need WAY more than 1200-1500 calories to maintain weight. I am 138 pounds and work out daily and need 2500 calories a day to maintain.

  8. Shreya Sivaramakrishnan

    Isn't the average recommend caloric intact around 2000kcal to 2500kcal?
