Then the next video was a vegetarian climber, come on its getting boring. Bam! A ballerina whos not only super slim, but hits the nail when she says without meat, it feels like snacking, and she feels less focused. Thank god an athlete not holding themselves back. Reply Thanos got the infinity gauntlet says: September 26, 2019 at 3:38 am Ballerinas are ugly. Their bodies have so much body fat, yet so little weight and almost no muscle. Reply J Bouchard says: September 28, 2019 at 3:03 am the positions you could do… Reply A.L. otter says: September 28, 2019 at 3:03 am 1650 is pretty normal for a petite woman. She's just very stretchy. Reply G Dubrovskaya says: September 28, 2019 at 2:12 pm I've seen a lot of people slam this video for "promoting eater disorders" or similar conclusions. The thing about ballet that many people don't get is that ballerinas are thin because most of them naturally as thin and you have to be light to not stress your feet too much when you go on pointe. She has a light build with smaller bones, and thus she would also weigh less simply because she has less bone mass. You can't survive with an eating disorder for long either – notice that most of the ballerinas who have had eating disorders exit ballet when they are being teated – ballet is incredibly demanding on your energy levels. If you don't eat, you'll not survive. But it's true that pointe work is much less dangerous when you weigh less. If you have seen the photos of ballerina feet, you'll understand what I mean.

But, ballerinas burn it in a second, so… Reply Sid Pad says: October 2, 2019 at 3:40 am I love this woman! Funny, talented, down to earth, and health conscious! Reply Gina Granda Huaylinos says: October 3, 2019 at 3:26 am I'm with her. If i don't eat meat, I feel mentally foggy and my muscles feel really weak, specially when I'm lifting a lot. Love her balanced lifestyle Reply I. W. says: October 4, 2019 at 3:16 pm I love how calm and confident she is in her own life. This is about feeling your best and not obsessing over 'clean eating' or beautifully prepared food. It's actually a hell of a lot more relaxing than watching a so-called beauty-guru's routine!! Reply emmafrost13 says: October 5, 2019 at 9:45 pm So my only question is this. How is she not super bloated after all that food? From her description, I'm same height and weight yet I have this huge stomach after a day of eating max 1600cal+cardio of one hour, especially if there are more veggies included. Like it's uncomfortable.

Looks comfortable. lol Reply sonia nottelling says: October 11, 2019 at 1:07 pm Love this video and I love her! I love how she describes how her body, in her sport and art, as an “instrument” and therefore she must keep it in the best condition for performance. However, I notice there is a double standard in the reaction to this when it comes to athletes, as opposed to models. Just like a ballerina or any athlete, a model also needs their body to be a tool. Yet I’m sure if a model admitted to counting calories and saying they needed to eat 1600 calories to lose weight for fashion week, there would be uproar and talk about how it’s glorifying eating disorders and so on so forth. Just something I noticed. Reply durianrider says: October 12, 2019 at 3:11 am she isnt as skinny as the good ballerinas. My gf is skinnier than her. Not hating just saying. Reply David says: October 12, 2019 at 3:18 am 12:24 what you came for. You're welcome Reply Emily Kline says: October 12, 2019 at 6:16 pm why doesn’t she use an app to count calories though? it would be so much easier Reply Lüedeke Dramatic Joestar says: October 12, 2019 at 11:12 pm A smart tip I heard from a student ballerina in my school: "If it feels like a diet, you're not doing it right. It's not about dieting, it's about self-control and common sense."Another great tip my grandma, who recently retired from ballet, taught my siblings and I: "Don't eat until you're full, eat until you're satisfied" Reply Yaniichu says: October 13, 2019 at 12:35 am Me thinking ballerinas would be eating salads and all sorts of whole foods.

Reply Catie May says: October 15, 2019 at 5:42 pm The thing about skinny people (such as myself)A lot of people constantly assume we have some sort of eating disorder but they fail to recognize the fact that all bodies burn food differently and like me I have ridiculous metabolism but I eat constantly around the clock.My father told me "As long as you're eating healthy and you feel healthy you don't need to worry about what you look like, it will come along in its own time". Reply Natalie . Nugent says: October 16, 2019 at 1:04 pm I for some reason keep coming back to this video Reply Alina Theresa says: October 17, 2019 at 3:03 am This video is so inspirational. I’ve watched it many times hoping that one day her motivation will rub off onto me! She makes it look so much easier than it is. Reply Chloe Sideridis says: October 17, 2019 at 10:50 am does anyone find t satasfying when they go on there phone or do random stuff in splits or a flexible pose Reply Cristina R says: October 18, 2019 at 2:51 pm 250 calories deficit sounds quite healthy, was expecting something more drastic. and her food is really varied throughout the day. very interesting video! Reply Brunella says: October 19, 2019 at 3:59 am Everyone talking about how healthy she is and all and all I can think about is how she said she was going to eat cereal and go to sleep(in theory not brushing her teeth) Reply rias says: October 19, 2019 at 6:53 pm It's all good just counting calories seems so restricting on its own. And it cannot be fun. So much attention to what she eats seems disordered basically. And she clearly restricts. She doesnt do bread as she says. Reply Sir Switch Crookington says: October 20, 2019 at 5:23 am what a horrible fucking existence, just for dancing Reply Kimberly Studies says: October 20, 2019 at 6:08 am Just googled her BMI when I saw her height and weight and she's underweight 🙁 Reply Kyrande Fox-fairy says: October 20, 2019 at 1:36 pm After the first time I watched this video I started counting my calories. It's been 8 months since then and I lost the excess weight that I wanted to lose, and now I'm counting my calories to make sure to don't lose more, since I'm at my healthy weight now. I'm just so thankful to this video. It's educating and motivating, and also relaxing and fascinating at the same time. Reply G P says: October 21, 2019 at 2:20 pm Counting calories makes zero sense. Why? Everybody has a different metabolism and would consume / burn calories at a different efficiency. You cannot make this accurate but you can guess consistently wrong. Reply Jaia Meecham says: October 22, 2019 at 4:32 am She has such a likeable personality wow Reply peng says: October 23, 2019 at 6:24 pm I was like ohhhh no problem balancing with your eyes closed I tried it and I almost died then I opened my eyes and the wiggles immediately stoped 😳 Reply Elsbeth Steele says: October 23, 2019 at 7:18 pm Sooooo much processed food.

She eats corn dogs, steak, and does ice baths. She also finishes her night with a bowl of cereal which is what I do almost every night LOL. Reply Littlekelt95 says: November 4, 2019 at 1:17 pm Glad she doesn't deprive herself of calorie rich foods, but a damn corn dog for breakfast? That has none of the nutrition required for a healthy start to your day, let alone as a high-performance athlete. Idk man. Reply Rosa Louise says: November 4, 2019 at 6:05 pm Lets sort it: Is Dance a Sport or an Art? 💕 Reply Tiger74147 says: November 5, 2019 at 12:14 am The tricky part, to me, is the knowing how many calories are in something. Or even how many calories an exercise expended! If you use pre-prep meals like this, you have much more info than if you're cooking a lot fresh. She has a scale and knows things like calories in a tablespoon of olive oil. It all just gets really complicated from there. Haven't figured out a great system for it. Reply Black Red10 says: November 5, 2019 at 4:25 am Shes a beauty.

That's pretty bad for your health at the end to eat so many processed foods. No thanks Reply Courteney Perry says: November 6, 2019 at 7:42 pm If I tried ballet I bet I’ll quite after 5 days or less. Reply Pearl Goldenberg says: November 7, 2019 at 10:58 am this is probably the most mentally healthy calorie counting I’ve ever seen. I expected something crazy healthy but this was super relatable.

After my third I lost it by “going vegan” 🙄 I lost my breast milk and I’m still suffering digestion issues for that decision- and now he’s 2! Counting calories is the way to go Reply Nirali Kumar says: November 10, 2019 at 2:59 am She’s already underweight and she wants to lose more weight Reply Jen says: November 12, 2019 at 6:36 am I am not a dancer (I weight lift) but I love revisiting this video to readjust my mindset in regards to healthful/mindful eating towards what my goals are and what they should be (ie not that I want my body to look a certain way but I want it to perform a certain way).

Reply randee hamilton says: November 13, 2019 at 3:58 am Lincoln and Theresa used to teach ballet at my dance studio back in like 2004/2005 she was always so graceful and disciplined Reply LiwiaGoszynska says: November 14, 2019 at 6:13 pm 1500 kcal is not enough for her height (yes she ate more, but she also burnt more so she should've eaten around 1800/2000 to keep her in the same shape she is in now) Reply Cathy Mwangiru says: November 16, 2019 at 4:48 pm Can we get an update on how she’s doing?
