Prior to the current season of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, show star Anfisa Nava lost in excess of 250 pounds when she broke things off with dead weight hubby Jorge Nava, but it appears as though she is putting those pounds back on by giving Jorge another shot to step up and be a good partner. Anfisa also lost 26 pounds of her own, and she has just posted a brand new YouTube video talking about how she lost the weight and why she wants to lose more. (Video included at the bottom of the post.)
Anfisa, who makes it very clear in the beginning of the video that she is not a physical trainer or a nutritionist, says that she weighed 130 pounds when she first came to the United States in June of 2016. She says that she began to put on weight here, maxing out at 146 pounds.
Anfisa adds that she is five feet, seven inches tall and is quick to point out that many people might be happy weighing 146 pounds at that height. But, she says that her weight tends to show the most on her legs and on her face, and she did not like the more rounded face and thicker legs.
So how did she lose the weight? The first thing she did was begin to count calories, which made her realize that she was often consuming more than 2,000 calories a day. She trimmed that to roughly 1,600-1,700 calories a day, and also cut out a lot of carbs — although not completely.
Anfisa says she gave up sweets, adding that chocolate was particularly hard, and began using the My Fitness Pal app to help monitor calories in and calories out. She started drinking a glass of water before every meal, and she focused on cardio workouts using the high-intensity interval training (HIIT) method.
The end result is that Anfisa lost 26 pounds, going from 146 pounds to her current weight of 120 pounds. She says that she has still not reached her target weight, but she doesn’t reveal what that number is.
On a note unrelated to her weight, Anfisa states at the very beginning of the video that she has just completed her final exams. Say what you will about Anfisa, but she is definitely goal oriented and gettin’ things done!
Congratulations to Anfisa on her hard-earned weight loss and the completion of her classes (for now). Hopefully we will learn a little more about what she is studying on the upcoming episodes of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After. Plus, we might see some of how Jorge lost his weight because he was looking a bit more svelte in recent photos and videos!
