"So I've been consistently doing Pilates for like the last year. I've done it for a few years, but I've been really consistent the last year. And when I was trying to drop weight, I was working out like five, six times a week, and I would even do, for the first month and a half, I would even do two-a-day."

The model and influencer said she was on a strict calorie deficit diet. "I think I was consuming like 1 200 calories in a day, max. I was trying to do like meat and veggies and like minimal carbs," she shared.

Besides Pilates and her diet, Lori also did regular cardio exercises.

"I had this sprint interval circuit that I would do, so I would do Pilates in the morning, and then I would sometimes directly go to the gym and hop on the treadmill for 30 minutes, or I also like to do a hike, or I would run the stairs, just some type of cardio," she says.

"That's how you drop. Pilates alone is not gonna make you lose weight, it's just gonna give you long, lean muscles. So yeah, that's how I did it."
