4 Easy Steps to Weight Loss
For some people, losing weight can be one of the most difficult things to achieve and they wonder if there was an easier way and if there was a short guide to losing weight.
Well one guy seems to think he has come up with achieving those weight loss goals in 4 easy steps.
Aaron Bleyaerts honest account of how he lost 80 pounds went viral on the internet. The one major tip he talks about that had an effect on him was having his heart broken.
Check out the 4 tips below and how you might apply them to your own life.
The Short Guide to Losing Weight
1. No Beer
This is a big one, and one that you’ve probably heard before. Every time you drink a beer, it’s like eating seven slices of bread. That’s a lot of bread!
We can take that one more step and say no alcohol. While there are some drinks that are better than others, the majority of the time, alcoholic drinks are empty calories that don’t do your efforts any favours.
2. Portion Control
This is especially true when you go out to eat at restaurants. A good trick to do is when your meal comes, cut it in half and right away ask for a takeout container, so that you can save the rest for later – and even better, if you start your meal out right by ordering lean meats and veggies, you’ll slim down in no time!
3. Have Your Heart Broken
And this, is where we can all stand with Bleyhaert. We’ve all been hurt. We’ve all felt broken and tossed aside. We’ve all wanted to just give up and crawl into a dark hole. But, we haven’t all used it to our advantage. We haven’t all done what Bleyhaert did. He took his pain and used it to fuel exercise and healthy eating. He used it to be better and feel better. And in turn, this exercise and self care routine lead to his healing. He says, “join the gym at your work. Start going to the gym regularly, and even though you don’t know that much about exercise and you’re way too weak to do pretty much anything but lift 5 lb weights and use the elliptical machines with the old people, do it until your sweat makes a puddle on the floor. Then go home and go to bed early and the next day do it again. And then again. And then again.” Bleyhaert went through a year of heartache, a year of pushing himself physically and mentally before he reached his current body. How many of us use that pain as a reason to give up and fall into a tub of ice cream? While tempting and understandable, it clearly isn’t the healthiest move. And while it may feel like it at first, in the end it isn’t about showing up an ex. It isn’t about being hotter after the break up. It is about loving yourself enough to be healthy. It will feel like a struggle, but Bleyhaert offers this important reminder: “It’s about being able to wait. Waiting, being patient, and trusting that life will slowly inch along and things will eventually get better. After all, change takes time. But time is all it takes.”
4. No Fruit Juice
While fruit in moderation is very good for you, fruit juices not so much. As Bleyhaert says, “Too much sugar!!!”
