Lori Harvey is being transparent about her most recent attempt to lose weight. In preparation for the 2022 Met Gala, the 25-year-old model and influencer just uploaded a TikTok detailing her weight loss process.

Everyone has been curious about what I did especially to build my body up to this point, Lori remarked. Consequently, I put on around 15 pounds of relationship weight when Mike and I started dating. She has been dating Michael B. Jordan, an actor, for more than a year.

Lori went on, “For the past year or so, I’ve been doing Pilates regularly. I’ve been doing it for a while, but during the past year I’ve been pretty consistent. And while I was attempting to lose weight, I worked out five to six times a week, sometimes even twice a day for the first month and a half “also known as two daily exercises.

She said that those second sweat sessions were usually made up of cardio. Lori said that sometimes, after doing Pilates, she would go to the gym and run on the treadmill for 30 minutes. She did a sprint interval workout, went hiking, or ran up and down some stairs on other days.

Lori said about her diet at the time, “I was in a calorie deficit. I think I was maybe eating 1,200 calories a day, max. And I wasn’t on a specific eating plan.” She also said that she mostly ate meat, vegetables, and “minimal carbs.”

Lori wrote in the video’s description, “Before y’all start your shit, this is what worked for me and MY body..everyone is different, so adjust your needs to meet your goals.”

It’s a very specific way to work out, but is it safe? The experts were asked by Women’s Health. Here’s what a personal trainer and a registered dietician nutritionist say you need to know about Lori Harvey’s workout:

Harvey’s Method is Really Dangerous for Anyone Else

According to dietitian Sophie Medlin, it’s “very risky” for celebrities to advertise their weight loss plans to the general public.

It is extremely upsetting and tempts people to adopt restrictive eating habits, which can result in eating disorders and chronic mental health issues, she said.

Kimberley Neve, a registered dietitian, agreed and told Insider that it glorifies extreme diets without mentioning the sacrifices they frequently entail.

Harvey’s management has been approached by Insider for comment. In a comment on the video, Harvey said: “Everyone is different so customize your needs to reach your goals. Before y’all start talking stuff this is what worked for me and MY Body”

You can’t workout twice per day on 1200 calories per day

If you want to lose weight, you shouldn’t double up on your workouts, according to Kara Liotta, CPT, co-founder of KKSWEAT. Additionally, she continues, following such a stringent schedule necessitates “you would actually need to be taking in more calories” as opposed to maintaining a severe calorie deficit like Lori did.

It still depends on the type of exercise you’re performing whether it’s safe to go to the gym twice in one day. The intense Pilates and exercise routine Lori uses will eventually overwork your muscles, according to Liotta.

However, if you’re working up a sweat in a morning strength training class and winding down with a fast yoga practise at night, you should be fine. Simply make sure you’re working out different muscle groups and giving your body plenty of time to heal in between sessions, advises Liotta.
