Sheridan Smith will host a new program tonight BBC One called Musicals: The Greatest Show. The show celebrates everything to do with musical theater from the London Palladium and will include appearances by Nicole Sherzinger, Michael Ball and Hamilton actor Gavin Spokes.
As Sheridan presents the new show, viewers are reminded of her recent weight loss and how she managed to maintain it.
The TV star lost two stones in just 14 weeks in 2019 and went to Instagram in September of this year to share the news with her fans.
She posted two before and after pictures of herself and was clearly pleased with her new appearance, although at the time she wrote, “I am not in favor of weight loss regimens as I think everyone should be comfortable with their own skin.
“I lost two stones!” Sheridan added.
Sheridan’s favorite sport was dance, as the scenes she had to practice in Joseph the Musical were full of carefully choreographed dance routines.
Experts have noted the incredible health benefits of dance, including how it can help with fat loss, according to Healthline.
Dancing can also improve blood circulation, help build a stronger immune system, reduce stress, and increase endurance so you can keep exercising for longer.
Some types of dance are better for burning more calories than others, such as hip hop, swing, and ballet.
Hip-hop and swing dance routines can allow a person weighing about 11 stones to burn up to 207 calories in 30 minutes, while ballet can burn up to 179 calories.
Zumba has also been found to help people with weight loss and the normally social aspect of group dancing can improve mental health.
Although you will have to wait for the studios to reopen to try pole dance or pole fitness, it is another type of dance that is great for fat loss.
The fact that people have to pull themselves up with their arms and upper body means that pole dancing improves muscle strength as well as flexibility.
There are many other types of exercise that are beneficial for weight loss, including walking, running, cycling, and yoga.
Walking is a great way to incorporate exercise into your daily life and is perfect for beginners who are just starting to lose weight through exercise.
Cycling can help you lose weight, but it can also increase insulin sensitivity and lower your risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer, according to Healthline.
Whichever exercise you choose to do to lose weight, consistency is key as well as eating a healthy diet.
