Catherine Tyldesley reveals incredible weight loss transformation after 12 week programme with Ultimate Performance
Catherine Tyldesley has revealed the results of her incredible weight loss after an intense 12 week programme with Ultimate Performance.
Following her departure from Coronation Street – where she played Eva Price – and an injury in April, the actress overhauled her diet and fitness plan.
Already famed for her incredible figure, the mum of one completed a weight loss transformation programme with Ultimate Performance which saw her achieve amazing results.
Despite previously losing weight before starting the programme – after weighing 95kg and wearing size 22 clothes as a teenager – the actress has now embarked on a new health a fitness plan.
Catherine now weighs a healthy 65kg and is a size 8, after introducing weightlifting into her fitness plan – as well as moving more.
And of course, the 35 year old couldn’t have achieved the results without changing her diet, whilst still allowing her to live a sustainable healthy lifestyle.
Talking about her diet, Catherine revealed: “Years ago, before Ultimate Performance, I would skip breakfast, and by lunchtime I would be really hungry, so I’d be reaching for more starchy food. A baguette or pasta etc. Whereas now, I eat every 3-4 hours and I get a bit grumpy if I don’t. As a mum with a toddler, that has been so much better for me. I feel a million times better eating in that way. Also, again, you’re not going to binge.”
And discussing her meal prep, she explained: “My meal planning pre-U.P. was pretty much non-existent. Wednesday night was ‘spaghetti bolognaise night’ and that was always in the diary. Saturday night was always ‘curry night’. Whereas now we make our own curries and we make our own spaghetti bolognaise, again, healthier versions of these. So, I’m much more aware, especially since becoming a mum. I want Alfie to be eating the right things. I feel like U.P. has given me the tools and the knowledge to be able to do that. It’s not rocket science either – it’s really straightforward.”
The actress went on to say: “In terms of diets in the past, I tried everything! All the various diet clubs, cabbage soup diet, grapefruit diet, all kinds of crazy, faddy diets that don’t work! They are not sustainable. Yes, you may lose a couple of pounds for a few weeks, which is predominantly going to be water and lean muscle mass, then you’re going to be starving and you’re going to put it all back on.
“The biggest mistakes I made before coming to U.P. were faddy diets. I have done everything under the sun, years ago. I promise you, they don’t work. It is about finding that lifestyle and educating yourself. Taking that time doesn’t take much. It’s a lot simpler than people think. It’s eating from the land. If it ran, swam, or grew from the earth, eat it. It’s as straightforward as that. Then it’s just about knowing your portion sizes.”
And clearly very proud of her results, Catherine shared a before and after photo on her Instagram account to keep her 454k followers up to date with her fitness journey.
Indeed, her results haven’t gone unnoticed with fans, with one exclaiming: “You’re so healthy & fit, I envy your discipline. Good on you!”, and another claiming: “You look fabulous you should let everyone know your 12 week plan! X”
