La parodia de un hombre a la cuenta fitness de su novia en Instagram

Edward Lane es periodista de la revista Men’s Health


Edward Lane es un periodista de la revista Men’s Health y su novia Amy Hopkinson es fanática del mundo fitness. Pero las rutinas que lleva la joven al tener este estilo de vida saludable para el hombre resultan un poco extrañas.

Según lo relatado por Lane al sitio  Mashable, él en distintas oportunidades tuvo que esconderse para no aparecer en las historias de Instagram compartidas por su polola y según dice pensó que «que era una locura».

«Literalmente cientos de personas le ponían like a las imágenes de mi pareja comiendo ensalada. Eso no tiene sentido para mi», afirma Edward. Así que decidió crear una cuenta donde parodia este tipo de perfiles y se ríe del mundo fitness.

 

 

ACTION AND REACTION // Forget about counting your macros. Weight maintenance is all about matching the calories you burn to the calories you consume. If you want to weigh more then eat more and do less. If you want to weigh less then eat less and do more. But look at me, I look amazing, so I’m working on maintenance. . . And so that means finding the perfect reaction for every foodie action. Which is where your 🍑 comes in. As one of your biggest muscles your glutes can activate more muscle fibres, making them one of the most metabolically activate parts of your body, requiring more calories to be burnt for fuel every time they contract. And so… Strap on a resistance band and start clam shelling. . . Whether you’re by a pool repping crisps at the @fitbituk_ireland #houseoffit or on your chaise longe at home and spotter is dropping grapes in your mouth it’s the perfect exercise to make every food guilt-free. . . 🙌🏼 to @lensaction for bringing a little production value to #wellnesstedworld

OM A MISSION // Since joining the upper echelons of Instagram’s wellness influencer community I’d been finding it progressively harder to practice what I preach. A full diary of protein launches, avocado brunches, selfies, workout classes, selfies, gym openings, yoga retreats and selfies had a dramatic effect on my anxiety levels. And despite my online persona, I was struggling for headspace. Which is why I’ve started meditating. It’s a brand new trend. Everyone’s talking about it. Sure, some nerds will tell you it’s been around for 3500 years, but what do they know? Right now it’s one of the hottest wellness trends and I really doubt the yogis of ancient India had iPhone apps (duh) so they clearly weren’t doing it right, anyway! Since checking in with myself for 5 minutes a day my cortisol levels have plummeted and I’m feeling more zen than ever. My advice? Focus on you. Make time for self-love (Gross. Not like that. Perv) because at the end of the day wellness and the route to happiness is about putting yourself ahead of all others. Worried this will come across as selfish? Put a good filter on your pic and people will call it inspiring 😘

PROGRESS // On the left – unhealthy. On the right – healthy. At the start of the year I thought the only way to get abs was being restrictive with my diet. Pizza was on the menu – but only in bite size pieces. And, as you can see from the look on my face, I wasn’t happy about it! And then all of a sudden I discovered the WHOLE FOODS DIET. Before that I never knew what whole foods really meant – and then I realised it just meant ALL OF IT. And I’ve not looked back since. For months I’d been enviously scrolling Instagram seeing lean influencers photographing and talking about all the amazing treats they squeeze into their nutrition plans – doughnuts, popcorn, chocolate, peanut butter, chocolate AND peanut butter – while still looking fantastic. Initially I thought they were all a bunch of phoney liars. Taking a picture of doughy goodness before turning to a plate of leaves. But now I know that, contrary to some people’s concerns, everything you see on social media is genuine and real *breathes sigh of relief* And it turns out there’s some science behind it too. Research conducted by the esteemed Dr Oetker – an expert in the field – found that refusing to slice up your pizza and eating it whole means your body has to work harder to break it down. This slowing of digestion prevents the insulin spikes associated with weight gain and helps you to feel fuller for longer, preventing snacking. Now that’s what I call an upper crust health tip! Lunch, anyone?

FULL DISCLOSURE // OK, so my stag do wasn’t as wellness as I thought. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned from the amazing people on here it’s that I’m not going to beat myself up about it. 50 pints in a weekend with your mates is nothing to be ashamed of. It was 💯. Did you know in just a few days your liver can reboot itself? Our bodies are amazing. And while most of the time it’s our job to look after them. Right now I’m asking it to look after me! So hear I am. Owning it. I may have lost a couple of abs, but downing this nutritious red juice is helping me through my hangover and helping me get back on track for the week ahead. Wish me luck! Oh, and I’ve been away from the ‘gram for too long!! Im sorry. I’m sure you’ve all missed me 😘

6PACK SECRETS // While so-called experts would have you believe this kind of transformation takes months I’ve got some good news – it takes 30secs. Sure transformation plans promise better health, but when you’re thirsty for likes, followers and – let’s be honest – your first #spon post, the sooner those abs pop on screen the better. Well, allow me to share the insider secrets I’ve learnt since becoming the ‘grams hot new #microinfluencer (don’t say I’m not good to you 😉). The trick is to spend hours and hours taking selfies, working out the exact angle and filter (Clarendon, duh!) that best defines your 6-pack. Swap from a T-shirt to sports bra to fool others into thinking you’ve been in the gym. Finally tense so hard that you may or may not fart and take the snap. Post it and watch the praise come in. Because what’s the point getting your body out of strangers on the internet can’t tell you how pretty you look, right? And today I’m feeling pretty! Try it and tag me in so we can all support each other on our own journey.
