    I would love to see Xeela fitness expand their knowledge on female hormones and the difference in our hormone production and its effect on weight loss. I was watching where Nat was exhausted and complaining about being tired and as a woman I am aware we need about 3 more hours of sleep a night compared to men for proper recovery. Other than that I Loved watching this transformation. As a former female athlete it inspired me to get my ass back into gear and push to my own limits

      @Olivia J the idea that women generally need more sleep isn’t necessarily true but really the fact is that as men they have more testosterone which contributes to overall vitality &energy. this is basically saying the difference in hormones of men vs women can explain why women tend to feel fatigued often regarding their sleep hours

    • Isabella Salguero Cespedes
      Isabella Salguero Cespedes 9 days ago +4

      @Error404 you sound like a classic man assuming without research lol. Women’s bodies function in a cycle that heavily impacts energy (and yes mood) of 3 different hormones rising and falling in different patterns throughout the month. This in addition to other differences in brain function leads to women needing a little more sleep than men (not 3 hours tho lmao more like 20mins to an hour). But it is not only that women need more sleep but the effects of not sleeping enough cause more psychological distress.

    • Error404
      Error404 22 days ago +2

      I think that statement where women need more sleep is a myth , generally a normal functioning human needs minimum 6hrs of sleep and when ur working out u need more rest so like 8hrs but that’s pretty much it. There is no such thing that woman require more sleep or anything. The only thing where u need to watch out for women while workouts is like periods cus that can affect mood swings and increase body pain plus ofcourse woman can’t work out as heavily as men do there are certain restrictions , so whatever Ilya did in my opinion was the best he could do for Natalie

    I love the fact that you went with a reasonable and HEALTHY body fat percentage. Men can be healthy at a body fat range between 8 and 19 where women typically need in the 20s just to maintain a menstrual cycle and healthy hormone function. I see so much push for "shredded" so this was refreshing to see a realistic healthy weight😊

    It's crazy that I only really watched these guys throughout the years on David's channel, and then to check in with them months and months later after minimal to no uploads, and to see all of their progress, it truly makes me so happy!! They all deserve the world, and Natalie's weight loss journey (not that she wasn't before), has created a wildly confident and incredibly beautiful girl. I hope the days of bad habits and reckless behaviours are somewhat in their past, and this is more their goal for the future for them and their fans. Genuinely inspirational, and happy this was shared with us.

      The Gospel:
      (I am not a bot, I'm just someone who enjoys spreading the gospel. Much love to you all!)
      The gospel is the good news that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over His enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy.
      Peter says in 1 Peter 2:24, “He himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness.”
      So Christ died not only to forgive sin, but also that it might die in the lives of His people.
      ~Quoting John Piper~
      My friend put together a great PowerPoint about the Gospel and Jesus being the prophesied Messiah. I'd like to share if you're interested, just reply and I can send you the link. May Jesus Bless you!

    First and foremost congrats to Natalie, the weightloss doesn't matter. I hope she is feeling healthier and more in control of her body. This short doc does a disservice to the work Ilya and her put in. Most of this video is natalie trying to run a 6' 30" mile and a few soccer and gym clips. Would have loved to see more conversations about the science, lifestyle changes, and mentality that goes into fitness. Was she drinking alcohol? Was she getting 8 hrs of sleep? How did her view of herself change? Near the end of the video there seems to be a huge jump in her fitness/weight loss with no explanation. Reminder whether you are the "before" or "after" you are beautiful and can be healthy. Fitness and health come in so many shapes and sizes.

    Just constructive criticism this documentary could have been a lot longer just showing a lot more in-depth of the whole process including her eating habits, more of her changes in her day to day life, her talking more about her struggles during the process, final scan was never showed which leads to believe that she didn’t achieve the body fat percentage but it could be more emphasized how much her body change and how that affected her life moving froward, some close friends and family could have given their comments on natalie journey as well (maybe her family would not be into it but her friends and boyfriend who are public figures could have definitely chimmed in) This could have been a docuseries because in the end it just felt like we were left with a lot of questions.

    • Lauren Foster
      Lauren Foster Month ago +3

      Yes! This is giving the impression that working out ALONE is an effective strategy for weight loss. This completely ignores nutrition, sleeping, stress factors, hormones, etc....For her to have lost 30 pounds she needed to be in a caloric deficit. Nutrition plays a BIG part in this. I can't imagine she created that deficit through running alone. I think her transformation looks amazing. I commend her for her hard work but I would be interesting to see her 1 year from now to see if she maintained this weight loss. What new eating habits and exercise habits has she implemented to keep this a permanent transformation?? So many questions left unanswered. What happens when she stops running/training like this?

    I could not be more proud to have the same name as this girl. This inspires me as a woman to keep going and never give up!! For me, it's tough to have that mindset sometimes. But watching these transformations makes it actual and possible!! Ilya you really are good at what you're doing and it truly shows in these videos!! Sending much love and really big hugs to you Natalie!! YOU DID IT GIRL!!! ❤💪

    I always thought she looked great but omg the pics at the end!? Like holy shit she pushed herself and didn’t give up. She looks even more great now!! Female bodies are harder to train and some people don’t get that. I feel inspired. Ilya, baby, you’re amazing 💙 #xeelainspired

    I’m sure a lot of us can relate to Natalie. It was so easy when we’re were in high school or college and played sports. Now we have careers where a lot of it is sitting behind a computer. We are so busy or stressed with life we forget to make ourselves the priority. 2023 is all about self love 💪🏼❤️

    I decided to start my 2023 by choosing to be healthy and fit. I'm still far from the goal, but I'm definitely taking steps towards it. Last year was my rock bottom and I really want to make a change now, and it's a perfect opportunity to do that at the start of this year. This video is just inspiring and added spark to my fire. Thank you so much for this documentation.

    It’s harder for women to show any results im so fucking proud of Natalie and I honestly think she couldn’t of done it without her childhood friends because you still treated her like your best friend and was honest to her and if she tried to run away you were there to help her get back on track 😭❤

    BUT I would have to like to see more of Natalie’s diet & her day to day rather than things like beautiful hiking shots or even the soccer game for that matter! I want day to day inspiration & how to manage it all with a job & relationship & friends & socialising etc. I want to see her talk way way way more about her relationship with her body and food and fitness and looks and health before and after especially as someone who has been an inspiration for body positivity & neutrality! For me even though it’s a beautiful doc visually and maybe activity wise but fell extremely short true content wise! Please give us another episode regarding these things! And looking forward to these changes in Susie’s doc too! Kudos to Natalie! & also Ilya though!

      I totally agree with the diet and body relationship aspects. But something beautiful about the soccer and hiking inclusion was that ilya was emphasizing a active lifestyle, and not just exercising. The workout routines are arguably for short term goals but if ilya can teach an active lifestyle, that will be more sustainable and enjoyable for natalie.

    This was so beautiful to watch, truly in tears writing this because I know I’m not just speaking for myself when I say this but “we’ve all been there” sh*t I’m still battling this Fitness journey/ Lifestyle and it’s so hard it definitely requires that inner fight in you to keep pushing. The results won’t even matter anymore once you’ve exceeded the amount of work you thought you couldn’t get through. I’m so happy for you Nat ! And THANK YOU for sharing this with the world, keep up the great work mama you’re kicking a*s!

      @RadShowtime If you were really paranoid about people watching you (even though your cognisant that they aren't & you know it's a personal self-esteem issue), how long do you think it would take on average to overcome the fear? Would obviously be different for everyone but if you had to put a timeframe on it, or maybe you have an anecdote of your own experience, what do you think it would be?

      In Europe and America, a girl is born and does not know who her father is.
      She is raised in her mother's house and does not know her father..
      Then you grow up to the age of 18, when you have two options:
      The first is to stay with her mother and share the rent payment with her.
      The second is to leave her mother and go to live at her friend's house.
      Of course, living in her boyfriend's house is not for free.
      But she will give him her whole body so that she can stay with him..
      Then she passes from one friend to another until she gets married.
      In the end, the same scenario is repeated.
      Until she grows old, and then none of her children will be by her side.
      Its only place is a nursing home or a home for the elderly.
      As for Muslims: a girl is born..
      Her father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, uncles and uncles rejoice in her.
      She grows up and grows up under the care of her father and mother.
      And when she is of marriageable age, he proposes to her young men.
      The father asks about the young man until he finds a suitable husband for her who will protect and take care of her.
      Then she gives birth to children, and the same scenario is repeated.
      Until she grows old and her children compete for her service and care...
      A philosopher comes to us and says that women in Islam are complex.
      And it has restrictions, and demands the freedom of women..
      O retarded: does freedom mean to you that women be a toy that whomever of the men they want plays with them?
      Or to be the cause of the corruption of society instead of being the cause of its renaissance...
      Women’s rights are complete, God Almighty guaranteed them in Islam, as He made them a hidden pearl that only those who deserve it can take it..
      He guaranteed her her dignity... her veil.
      Her chastity..and her jacket..and made her one of the reasons for the advancement of society by creating a religious generation with good morals..
      🤲 Oh God, protect our women, and the women of Muslims.. and protect our honor, and the symptoms of Muslims, O Rahman, O Merciful..
      🤲 O Allah, do not make us of those whose efforts have been lost in the life of this world while they think that they are doing well...
