CATH’S personal trainer and boyfriend Sam Witter reveals the diet

secrets that transformed her lifestyle.

And he gives readers the run-down on the simple changes that can

bring amazing long-term health benefits and help people feel fitter,

healthier and happier.

Sam, also Cath’s nutritionist, said: “It’s just a

case of straightforwards, easy-tofollow guidelines.

“It’s not a quick fix. Making just a few small

changes will work wonders.”.

Reduce your sugar intake by avoiding foods like chocolate, cake and

fizzy drinks. High blood sugar means excess gets stored as fat –. Helping

you pile on the pounds. Cut out processed food as well.

A high protein breakfast helps the body burn fat all day as well as

giving you extra energy and making you feel positive.

Eat lots of greens. Vegetables are packed full of vitamins the body

needs to keep you healthy and looking great.

Try to drink two litres of water a day.

Being hydrated is important when you’re trying to lose weight.

Eat every three hours to turn your body into a fat-burning machine.

Sam added: “It’s important to treat yourself as well.

Cheat once a week. Just one meal –. Whatever you want –. Try to

include protein.

“Have a drink in moderation –. Red wine is best because

it’s high in antioxidants.

“Set yourself realistic targets and you’ll start seeing

the benefits in no time.”.

IT’S hard to imagine it now but in her younger years Catherine

was a size 22 and weighed 15 stone.

The slim and sexy blonde of today was once overweight and known as

the “loud, jolly one”.

Today, Coronation Street beauty Catherine, 29, reveals how she shed

a staggering six stone, dropped a dramatic six dress sizes and, just as

importantly, kept the weight off.

With the help of her fitness trainer and boyfriend Sam Witter, the

star, who plays Rovers Return barmaid Eva Price on the soap, has

remained at a size ten.

She says it takes effort but insists it isn’t “rocket

science”.

And what better way to start a new year than by following her

impressive example? Catherine said: “Most people’s new

year’s resolution is to get fit and lose weight but so many quit

after a short amount of time.

“It’s all about finding a way of keeping it going.

“It’s about goal setting to help you stick to things, you

need to look at the long term.

“The beauty of the plan is that it’s sustainable, a

lifestyle change and not one of those fad diets.

“It’s very basic, it’s just taking things back to

the food that our body was designed for, it’s a simple, no brainer,

you don’t eat junk or processed food.”.

Many of Sam’s other clients have taken the same diet and

fitness plan that Catherine is sharing with us today and, she said, it

has worked for all of them.

She said: “The results are amazing, people are like: ‘Oh

my God, it was so easy’. People make tiny changes and see a huge

difference. I don’t think I deprive myself, I eat loads but I eat

the right foods.

“The idea is you've a cheat meal once a week so on a Sunday

I might've a roast or fish and chips –. You need to have a little bit

of what you fancy, life is too short. You need to be good 90 per cent of

the time.”.

On the right is Catherine’s dayto-day diet and fitness regimes

which have transformed her into one of soap’s sexiest stars.

She added: “If I can do it, anybody can and look what

I’ve achieved. Good luck!”. CATHERINE Tyldesley’s

calorie-burning workout is simple –. It really works.

After you finish it the body carries on burning fat for TWO DAYS.

Trainer Sam Witter said: “I’ve designed a special workout you

can do in your front room.”.

Follow Cath’s routine with these easy instructions and

pictures. it's important to warm-up properly so first we show you how

Cath does it.

1 Stretches to loosen the front leg muscles. Go on one knee with

the other foot flat, push your hips forwards and raise your arms to

stretch the muscles called quadriceps. Ten times for both legs.

2 Next come lower back and hip stretches. Stand with feet apart

raise your arm and push your hips the same way as the raised arm. Ten

times on each side.

3 Hamstrings. With leg straight out, lean forwards to stretch. Ten

times on each leg.

4 For the triceps hold your arm across the chest as far as it'll

go. Push it to your chest with the other hand. Hold for 30 seconds then

switch arms. Now move to the workout on the opposite page.

NICELY warmed up, Cath gets down to business with a burst of

circuit exercises in the next set of pictures.

Are you ready to feel the burn? You're going to do three exercises

to get the blood really pumping followed by a rest period.

Each exercise sees you going through four to five sets with a

two-minute rest between each set.

5 Do this one if you've access to some dumbbells. Even better if

you've an exercise bench –. Set it at a 45 degree incline. Push the

dumbbells up over the chest as fast as you can and control them on the

way down. Repeat 10 times.

Next do a couple of minutes jogging on the spot to get the lungs

going and have a two-minute rest before the next exercise, which is the

time-honoured classic press-ups.

6 Shows the correct position. Do ten of these press-ups before you

move on to the next phase, which is 10 tricep dips followed by 10 leg

lunges.

7 Pull up a chair for the dips. Spread your weight evenly and dip

slowly and smoothly to work the triceps. Repeat the exercise ten times

before moving on to the plank exercise.

8 Start off slowly with this one. Your ultimate goal is to hold the

position for 90 seconds. But don’t worry if you can’t get

there at first. It’s a tough one.

Put your weight on your toes, elbows and forearms like Cath is

doing and stay in the pose in the picture as long as you can. Remember

this is one to build up. Don’t worry if you can’t make the

full minute and a half.

After the plank a one-minute run on the spot leads to the next

two-minute rest phase.

Trainer Sam said: “This programme is great for weight loss.

The session is based on upper-body exercise followed by a lower body

exercise then back to an upper body exercise and finally a full body or

cardio interval.

“The blood is pumped all around making the heart and lungs

work hard. It uses the biggest muscles making it great for those of you

wanting to shift the Christmas pounds.”.
