Donna Trana (@donna.trana) is a health and wellness guru who often shares her nutrition recipes and workout routines on TikTok.

in one VideoShe promised her viewers that if they followed her five habits for a month, they “would end up looking like a whole new person.”

She began, “Just because it’s May doesn’t mean it’s too late to start getting ready for the summer body.”


She said her first tip was obvious: go for a walk every day.

“Walking is low-intensity, steady-state cardio, which means your body uses stored fat for energy rather than carbohydrates.

“Plus, the impact is low, so you can do it every day. No excuses.”


Her second appearance was a little more unexpected.

“The next thing you’re going to do is start with it mindfulness practice. It can be journaling, yoga, meditation, breathing exercises, whatever you want.”

How is this supposed to improve your figure?

“It puts you in tune with your body, and the more you appreciate your body, the better you want to treat it.”


Donna said it’s important to get some type of exercise at least five times a week, although she said seven is even better.

“And remember, whatever makes you happy is great. I would recommend doing strength training because it builds muscle, which means you burn more calories at rest.”

She also likes to mix in Pilates because of its low impact.

“But if those aren’t forms of movement you can hold on to, just pick something you really enjoy — it can literally be dancing — and do that.”


Her fourth tip is one we’ve heard over and over again: Eat enough protein.

“Digestion is where most of the calories are burned, and it’s absolutely necessary for muscle building. We found that it increases your basal metabolic rate,” she said, referring to the calories you burn at rest.

Donna recommended incorporating protein into all meals as it also helps you feel full.


“The last thing you’re going to do for the rest of the month is eat homemade whole foods 80% of the time.”

Instead of completely limiting yourself, it’s important to have a balance, she said.

“Giving yourself the space to enjoy life and eat whatever you want is extremely important for a sustainable approach to fat loss.

“If you eat well 80% of the time, your body still gets the nutrients it needs, but you don’t feel unhappy and you don’t feel like you’re missing out on life.”

While Donna said it's important to eat whole foods, she's opposed to counting calories
