They say it’s 70% diet, and 30% work out. If you do implement this lifestyle change, it’s actually a formula that works! (If your aim is to lose weight and get your body in a beautiful shape).
1 year ago I stopped (cut down by 95%) with all kinds of processed foods, and been eating as clean as possible most of the times. (With the exception of sometimes treating yourself or having big meals when out dining etc).
Between October 2014 – February 2015 I started going to the gym 4-5x a week, and I did it continuously with very little cheating.
Then I took a 3 month break while traveling (only with work out, clean eating continued) and when I came back in May I have been exercising and eating very well again on a regular basis.
Since October 2014 I have there for lost 8 kg’s. Which is quite good for a person who was not over weight or chubby but with an average body shape. People now notice a difference in my appearance and I do get a lot of compliments.
The goal was to burn some fat, build some muscles and get toned, so I would achieve a tighter body.
I have not reached my final goal yet, but I’m not far away now…
I would like to share with those, who may feel like it’s an impossible quest to lose weight – yeah it’s true, that’s how it feels the first 2-3 months.
But if you really stick to the rules of the formula - the formula freakin’ works! All you need is patience and repetition because then YOU.WILL.GET.THE.PROMISED.RESULTS.
Live through those initial months, because after you will become even more motivated once you start seeing your appearance changing to the better – and that will feel like running down hill. The feeling is so amazing, and you will be willing to change your life forever, never stop with the work outs, because seeing the results will be so much in your face – you will never go back to your old habits.
I myself feel totally done with neglecting my body, health and appearance. Taking care of myself has never felt this good. And I will embrace this lifestyle change for the rest of my life because it’s the only way of making it sustainable. I love it!
“Just stick to the formula” – was a motto that got me through it. And today I can see in the mirror, the science worked!
