If you haven’t heard of the Skinny Confidential until now…you’re welcome. Chances are though you already have because Skinny Conf. founder, health & fitness guru, and author Lauryn Evarts is quite literally taking over. Seriously if I ever need to see something sickeningly adorable she’s my girl. As if her gorgeous self wasn’t inspiration enough, she makes the idea of eating blended vegetables actually sound like fun on the daily. **I’m talkin inspiration down to the lemons in the teal bowl. See below.**
She is known to give a very real opinion on health and how to actually make it a lifestyle, as opposed to just posting glamour shots of fitness crazies covered in sweat. Lauryn’s brand, The Skinny Confidential, is such a fresh take on the drab info we keep hearing on the same old subjects and with the recent publishing of her first book, it’s safe to say this girl knows her stuff. None of that Dr. OZ mumbo-jumbo here. Read more for the essentials to making your health not only a priority, but a lifestyle. Because we all want success in health, love, and life. Thanks for your feedback Lauryn!
What’s your foundation whether in business, fitness, or general health?
My foundation is balance. Balance is what keeps me sane and motivated. I also utilize The Skinny Confidential as a place to connect with my readers, and hear what they want to know.
The most important quality you value in yourself from when it all started to today?
The most important quality I value in myself today is self-discipline. I feel like with discipline comes opportunity.
Worst thing someone can do for their health?
Smoke, not wear sun screen and/or eat chemical filled food….eww to all of these.
Your take on being sick/injured and working out?
I think you should tailor your workout to the ailment that you have. If you broke your arm, then do squats. If you injured your knee, use arm weights.
Your quickest easiest get fit advice ever?
Eat clean. Work out. And practice wellness. Wellness is eating your vitamins. Getting enough sleep. Taking care of yourself and fueling your body with the right nutrients. Be nice to yourself.
Your take on juice cleanses? How long should they be? How effective?
Juice cleanses should last in my opinion three days. Juice cleanses are very effective when done correctly, and ineffective if misused. If you’re interested in a juice cleanse email me at Lauryn@TheSkinnyConfidential.com.
What are some of the most common inhibitors you see when people struggle to formulate a health/beauty/fitness plan?
I always see people bite off more than they can chew. I think it’s really important again to stay balanced. I also see people who don’t sleep enough. Sleep is so important.
Best advice ever received in terms of personal health or in general?
The best advice that I’ve received is to be the best version of yourself. I think it’s really important to try your hardest in every aspect in your life.
Where do you see health and fitness going in the next 10 years?
I think a lot of people will mix it up daily and that gyms will become less popular and being outdoors will be more popular.
How can I start doing one thing today that will give me positive long-term payoff in regards to my health?
Stay away from fat-free and diet free products. They’re filled with chemicals and are bad for your health.
What is your biggest challenge that you face while working in a field of health/wellness/lifestyle?
My biggest challenge is that people are misinformed. The food companies are not providing the real truth of whats in food. I feel like people are eating chemical filled foods and don’t realize it. My advice is to know what the hell you’re eating.
Best advice you can offer to someone struggling to stick with it, or to find meaning in their fitness routine?
Just do it. Wake up. Work out. Eat clean. Sooner or later it will become a habit like brushing your teeth. Check out my blog here. And check out The Skinny Confidential book here.
If your were an animal what would you be?
Definitely a chihuahua. They’re bad ass and I’d want to hang out with my dog
