An ardent Youtuber, talented dancer, and now a model and an actress as well, Tessa Brooks does a little bit of everything and does it very well. Born on 5th April 1999- Tessa Brooks started out as a dancer/influencer. Her dance career really took off when she made an appearance on Disney TV’s ‘Next Big Thing.’

Tessa Brooks Dance Career
Her career sky-rocketed when she left the dance group Team 10. Just after one year of leaving the group, she headlined Fullscreen’s Live Girls Night In Tour. The best part- she was a solo headliner. In an interview,
Tessa said: ‘It was a childhood dream of mine to go on a dance tour. I never thought I will headline a solo dance tour. So, this is the coolest feeling ever.’

Tessa Brooks Weight Loss Journey
Tessa was never too worried about her physical appearance. As a regular dancer, she was quite fit. She wasn’t overweight or fat or even what people would call a bit chubby. Yet, she wanted to make some changes to her life.
Tessa has said multiple times that she is a total foodie, which causes her to gain weight more quickly. So, she would lose 5-8 pounds by practicing then gain it right back in a couple of weeks when she couldn’t practice. The problem wasn’t losing the weight; it was maintaining the weight loss.
That’s what Tessa wanted to change, and that is what the Tessa Brooks weight loss journey is all about. So, she decided to let go of her old eating habits and up the ante of workouts. By mid-2019, she has lost around 20 pounds.
She looks healthier than ever; she feels more beautiful, more confident, and happier in her new body. No weight loss pills or surgeries, just hard work, and dedication.
Tessa Brooks’ Diet Plan For Losing 20lbs
The best part about Youtuber/influencers is that they talk about everything going on in their life. Most of the time, when we write articles about celebrity weight loss, finding out this type of information is near impossible. Luckily, Tessa has been quite open about it, albeit after continuous requests from fans.
The most important dietary change she made was removing dairy products. She would eat whole mozzarella sticks while editing her youtube blogs. But, she knew she had to let all these habits go if she wanted real change. And she did.
Here are Tessa’s daily meals:
- Breakfast: An early morning smoothie to start the day.
- Lunch: Little green salad or chicken tacos for lunch.
- Dinner: Some light homemade dinner, mostly tacos.
This simple and easy-looking diet plan wasn’t easy to follow for Tessa. She has said multiple times, letting go of dairy was difficult, but it proved the most beneficial as well. She admitted that she didn’t get tired as quickly as before, and her brain, as well as the whole body, felt much more energetic.
Before & After
Tessa Brooks’ Workout Routine
As we said earlier, losing weight wasn’t a problem for Tessa, it was maintaining it. Once she made the changes to her diet, maintaining the weight also got a lot easier. Almost two years have now passed since Tessa’s transformation, and she hasn’t gained back any of the lost weight. Some credit also goes to her workout routine, which is quite hectic.
Even though she has a gym in her apartment, she doesn’t like spending too much time there. Instead, most of her workouts include hikes, pilates, long walks, running, and of course, dancing. She recently also started yoga to relax her mind and body after dancing sessions.
Aside from all this, here is what Tessa herself told her fans about her daily workout routine:
- At least 30 minutes of cardio every day- before starting the proper workouts.
- Two minutes planks for abs.
- 20 pushups every day to make her arms stronger
- Jumping lunges. At least twice a week.

How Does Tessa Maintain Her Weight?
After her weight loss journey, it was time for the real test- maintaining her weight. Only this time, she was more motivated and was ready to make the right sacrifices.
After ditching dairy, she started drinking celery juices daily. Now she is easing off restriction on dairy, but she said that whenever she eats dairy, workout sessions get a bit longer and harder too.
In another video, she also talked about the importance of cheat days. Eating the same boring and healthy food all month can be difficult and cause you to lose motivation. Cheat days help you keep going because your junk food cravings get satisfied. that’s exactly what Tessa does.
Lastly, she also talked about the importance of drinking a lot of water all day round. By staying hydrated, she feels fresh and can work out better than ever.
So you see, maintaining weight requires more effort than actually losing weight.
