Educate Yourself: Fitness Fighter Cara Castronuova

“Don’t diet to lose weight,” the two-time Golden Glove winner, certified trainer, and Biggest Loser fitness expert says. “When you tell yourself you're on a diet, you're going to end up cracking and bingeing. It's just a bad cycle. I believe in healthy living and portion control. A lot of people say they don't know what healthy living is, so just do research. It's really not that hard. Go online, figure out what a balanced diet is, what lean protein is, or how many calories there are in certain foods. People literally have no idea, and it's crazy how many calories are in what they put into their bodies.”
