BLOG OF THE MOMENT: I Eat Therefore I Am
It really is that simple: if you burn off more calories than you consume the weight will start melting away. For those who say I have tried everything but it doesn't work you are kidding yourselves. I made excuses for a long time but when I finally got serious about changing my ways the results were quickly noticeable. So if you want to lose weight start off by getting your ass of the couch and going for a bit of a walk or jog, bike ride or doing something active. Cut out the junk food, soft drinks and sugars. Snack on fresh fruit, drink lots of water/ herbal teas and enjoy a balanced diet with lots of vegetables, fish and lean meat. Seriously - try it for a few weeks, coupled with around 20 minutes a day of exercise and you will be amazed. Keeping a food diary is also a great idea as you can see exactly what you are consuming and adjust your ways if need be.
I probably went to the extreme for many months barely touching a gram of fat or sugar, cutting out alcohol, caffeine and doing lots of exercise but even smaller changes can see big results. I have personally slacked off a bit over the last 6 months and indulged a bit, but I'm tightening back up now - I want to lose another 10kg to reach my goal and I will do it.
SO.... Honestly there are no secrets to losing weight. You don't need pills or diet companies - just a commitment to make a change, a bit of hard work and plenty of perseverance and you will get there.
Best wishes everyone. Hope this is of help to some of you. Some restaurant-related posts will be published shortly.
