‘I Got Healthy, Didn’t Starve Myself I Lost 5.5 Stone in a Year

My name is Jenny Chatelain (@jenniie_fit), and I’m 29 years old. I’m from Haiti and was raised in Canada, and I currently work as a respiratory therapist. I lost 78 pounds by staying in a calorie deficit and slowly increasing my weight lifting workouts over the course of a year.

With a calorie deficit and slowly increasing her weight lifting and HIIT workouts from 2 to 5 days a week, Jenny Chatelain lost almost 6 stone in one year.

When it comes to losing weight, my biggest struggle has always been my love of food. It’s so convenient to go out to eat, and I’ve loved eating my whole life. At my heaviest, I weighed 242 pounds.

When I first started my weight-loss journey, I thought I had to give up all my favorite foods and *always* eat healthy foods. I kept telling myself that it was too hard, and I wasn’t sure if I could do it. But my motivation was my health. When I was overweight, I was out of breath simply from taking the stairs. I was always tired. I couldn’t find my size in clothes I liked. I lacked self-esteem.

My turning point came when I was on the bus on my way to school. A lady who was seated asked me if I needed her seat for the baby. She thought I was pregnant.

I was so embarrassed because I wasn’t – I was just overweight. This event made me sad enough to tell myself I couldn’t stay like that. I had already thought about losing weight, but I had not taken any real action. Thinking about it is not enough – I had to put in the work, stay focused and be consistent.

I chose to start by focusing on the amount of calories I was consuming per day. I learned that all I really needed to do to lose fat was to be in a caloric deficit (eating fewer calories than your body burns). I eat protein at each meal, and eat a lot of fruit and veggies. I was able to include some of my favorite foods and treats while staying in a caloric deficit and learning how to control my portions.

I’ve never starved or punished myself. This new diet became my lifestyle. I came to the realisation that I was struggling to lose weight because I lacked the knowledge of what to really do. Now, I know I can lose fat and still eat ice cream in moderation. This method is the best for me because it’s sustainable.

What I typically eat in a day

  • Breakfast: Two full eggs and one egg white omelet with a lot of veggies. Fruits on the side.
  • Lunch: Ground turkey, avocado, broccoli.
  • Snacks: Carrots, cucumbers, almonds or a bowl of oats. I make my oats with water or oat milk and add a banana and chia seeds.
  • Dinner: Grilled salmon, sweet potatoes and green peas.
  • Dessert: Plain

Trump didn’t disclose first positive COVID-19 test in Fox News interview with Sean Hannity: report

President Donald Trump did not disclose that he had already tested positive for COVID-19 and was awaiting a second test when he was interviewed by Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday, according to a new report.

Trump received a positive result from a rapid test on Thursday evening before his Fox News interview, The Wall Street Journal reported. The president mentioned that his top aide, Hope Hicks, had tested positive for COVID-19 — but not that he was awaiting the results of a second test to confirm the preliminary result.

“I’ll get my test back either tonight or tomorrow morning,” Trump told Hannity hours before confirming on Twitter that he and first lady Melania Trump had both tested positive for the disease.

Trump appears to have attempted to keep Hicks and other aides’ positive results under wraps, as well. 

“Don’t tell anyone,” Trump told an adviser after their own positive test, according to the report.

Campaign manager Bill Stepien, who worked closely with Trump and Hicks on debate preparations, was not informed of Hicks’ positive test until Bloomberg News reported it on Thursday. The Trump campaign announced Stepien tested positive on Friday.

Trump traveled to a fundraiser at his New Jersey golf club despite the White House learning he had been exposed earlier in the day. More than 200 people may have been exposed at the event, according to the New Jersey Department of Health.

“Holding the event in spite of knowing that one of the team was infected and had exposed others was a recipe for spreading disease,” Lisa Lee, an infectious disease expert at Virginia Tech University, told The Journal.

The lack of disclosure has alarmed White House aides as the virus continues to impact advisers, senators, reporters and attendees of Trump’s Supreme Court announcement last month.

“I’m glued to Twitter and TV, because I have no official communication from anyone in the West Wing,” one administration official told The Journal.

Trump has continued to try to keep his condition concealed from the public. White House physician Dr. Sean Conley told reporters on Saturday that the president was recovering well at Walter Reed Medical Center moments before White House chief of staff Mark Meadows privately contradicted his statement to reporters.

“The president’s vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care,” Meadows said Saturday. “We are still not on a clear path to a full recovery.”

The disclosure “outraged” the president, CNN reported.

“Who the f— said that?” Trump complained, according to The Journal.

Conley admitted on Sunday that he had falsely told reporters that the president had not received supplemental oxygen on Saturday. He went

Melania Trump didn’t visit husband to avoid exposing Secret Service and medical staff to COVID-19

Doctors and infectious disease experts were highly critical of President Trump’s decision to get driven in a hermetically sealed SUV around Walter Reed Medical Center to wave to supporters while he is contagious with COVID-19, endangering his Secret Service detail, photographed wearing the wrong type of personal protective equipment. The Secret Service has noticed.

Somebody at the White House had considered the safety of Secret Service agents. On Saturday, a White House official told NBC News’ Peter Alexander that first lady Melania Trump would not leave her isolation in the White House residence to visit her husband because “she has COVID” and “that would expose the agents who would drive her there and the medical staff who would walk her up to him.”

The White House defended what spokesman Judd Deere called Trump’s “short, last-minute motorcade ride to wave to his supporters outside.” Deere told Axios‘ Alayna Treene, the White House pool reporter on duty, that “appropriate precautions were taken in the execution of this movement to protect the president and all those supporting it, including PPE. The movement was cleared by the medical team as safe to do.” Deere did not, Treene note, “answer additional questions, such as whether the drive-by happened at the president’s request.”

Trump Reportedly Didn’t Disclose COVID-19 Diagnosis Until Second Test Was Taken

The Guardian

We should wish Trump well. But he’s been astoundingly irresponsible at every turn

Concern for a person’s health should not suppress debate about their conduct. And Trump’s policy choices have been disastrousA veil of solemnity descends upon the land at times like this, when elected officials or public figures get sick or die.We wish them speedy recovery, or extend sympathies, as we should. We ignore their faults and failings, as we would want our own ignored.These are the norms of politics and public life. Established norms, like behaving with dignity and self-restraint in a presidential debate, or condemning racist terrorists and murderers.For the record, we should all wish Donald and Melania Trump a full and speedy recovery. But that does not answer the fundamental question this president will leave behind when he leaves office. What norms survive a man who takes pleasure in destroying norms?First, let’s place the current norms in context. Concern for a person’s health – or respect for their death – should not suppress an honest discussion about their own conduct.You can’t ignore a smoker’s choices as you lament their lung cancer. And we can’t ignore the president’s choices in a pandemic, even as we wish for his recovery from Covid-19.From the beginning, Trump has been wrong about almost everything to do with the coronavirus. Even as he knew about the pandemic’s dangers, his policy choices were recklessly, dumbfoundingly, disastrously wrong. At every turn.The pandemic didn’t disappear like a miracle, or with the summer. It couldn’t be treated with an injection of disinfectant or bright light. It wasn’t halted by banning some air passengers (but not all) from China. Testing, tracing and mask-wearing has never been established on a national basis to stop the national spread of the disease.For months, Trump claimed that cases were only rising because testing was rising. So now he knows, as he has all along, that his own case exists regardless of testing.Which brings us to the most damaging impact of all, beyond the physical damage to the body of a 74-year-old man who makes mysterious trips to hospital.Trump’s infection with Covid-19 destroys what’s left of his credibility as someone who can lead a nation through the pandemic. If he can’t protect himself, how on earth can he protect American citizens?This is essentially the same question that destroyed what was left of George W Bush’s credibility when Hurricane Katrina submerged New Orleans. If you can’t protect an American city, how can you protect American forces in Iraq or the American people against terrorists?Looking back at what may well be the first and last presidential debate in this election, it’s hard to see Trump’s argument about mask-wearing as anything but suicidal – both personally and politically.“I put a mask on when I think I need it,” said our now-infected president. “Tonight, as an example, everybody’s had a test and you’ve had social distancing and all of the things that you have to. But I wear masks when needed. When needed, I

Hydroxychloroquine didn’t protect health care workers from coronavirus, study shows

Another study is warning against President Trump’s debunked coronavirus treatment.

Despite being studied as an early coronavirus treatment, studies have found the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine ineffective and even dangerous when used to fight coronavirus. A study published Wednesday added to that evidence, finding that the drug was ineffective in preventing health care workers from contracting coronavirus.

For the study published in JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania focused on 125 health care workers. Some of them received hydroxychloroquine for eight weeks from April to July, while others got a placebo. Throughout that time, four of the 64 workers who got the drug ended up with COVID-19, while four of the 61 who got the placebo did as well. Six of those who tested positive developed coronavirus symptoms, but none needed to be hospitalized. As a result, the researchers said they “cannot recommend the routine use of hydroxychloroquine” to prevent infections among health care workers.

In June, a clinical trial published in the New England Journal of Medicine also showed hydroxychloroquine wasn’t effective in preventing coronavirus infections after exposure to the virus. The FDA has since removed its emergency use authorization for the drug as a coronavirus treatment, and in July it released a study showing how the drug could cause serious side effects in hospitalized patients.
