Future Doctor Transforms The Old Fashioned Way
Future doctor, sports enthusiast and self-proclaimed “gym rat”, Chanae Ashlan keeps her Instagram filled with inspirational pictures and quotes that serve as motivation for anyone who’s looking to drop the weight. She’s more than just a pretty face. She’s got her Masters in Biomedical Sciences, a Pharmacy school student and is an overcomer! She shares her 100 pound weight loss success story on instagram.
“A lot of people ask me ‘What motivates you?’ or ‘How do I get motivated?,'” posts Chanae. “And my answer is always this: The only motivation you have is yourself and your goal. You need to be able to picture what you want to be, because you’ll NEVER push yourself without that vision. Get determined. Limitations exist only in your mind.”
“My metabolism is SUPER slow,” admits Chanae in an interview with Transformation Fitspo. Losing weight never came easy for me, there would be weeks I would workout 6x a week twice a day and not lose a lb. There would be days I would eat bad and give up. After I lost my first 30 lbs, I gained 15-20 of it back during my sophomore year of college.”
“I decided to really start getting serious my senior year and be 100% dedicated. Losing weight is 20% working out and 80% watching what you eat. I started cooking my meals, drinking lots of water and making sure portion sizes weren’t too big. I also started counting calories. Once I altered the way I ate, the weight started coming off. I hit my plateau of 200 lbs for about a year and a half, so I had to totally revamp my workouts and take out a few things from my diet to overcome that. I started running miles 3x a week and cut out dairy (even though I love cheese!). It’s all about finding out what works best for you and your body and sticking to it.”
Her Weight Loss:
I did it the old fashion way, gym and clean eating. Cut out the carbs (unless complex), sweets salts pop and red meats…picked up the veggies fruits lean meats and water!
I love Greek yogurt and peanut butter for protein!

When i first started i was doing two-a-days in the gym. 7x a week. Now i workout around 4-5 days a week. Cardio is key,…
