How did Danielle Lose Weight?
She lost weight by changing her lifestyle. Macdonald made huge changes to her diet plan and her daily routine. She stopped eating out, especially at fast-food restaurants, which were kind of her favorite. Giving up the food she loved wasn’t easy but she knew that it was the only solution.
So, Danielle stopped eating out at all. Fast food or whatever. Instead, she opted for eating healthy organic homemade food. Some of her frequent choices for lunch and dinner are chicken breast, green veggies salad, salmon fried in olive oil, lean meat, nuts, and Greek yogurt.
She also drank a lot of water to maintain her hydration level throughout the day as she did a lot of exercises. Macdonald’s daily exercise schedule included push-ups, squats, lunges, pull-ups, weight lifting, and sit-ups.
Besides burning calories in the gym, Danielle also went for one-mile walks in the morning on a daily basis. And playing tennis with her friends in the evening was a crucial part of her daily routine. When you put up that much effort, positive results are inevitable.
Danielle Facing Criticism
After Macdonald shared her new photos on her Insta account, she received a mixture of opinions. While her fans, like always, were very supportive of her decision, there were critics as well. Critics asked why did she lose weight if she was confident with herself.
While Danielle chose to not waste her time on such comments, her fans couldn’t wait. One fan replied to the critic, “Why don’t you guys mind your own business? This is her life let her live it her way.” Another wrote, “Don’t you people have anything to do?”
