No, none of the steps involve signing up for a program that will only cost you pennies a day, or taking a ‘magic’ pill that will ‘melt fat.’ You don’t need a lemon juice and tabasco cleanse or stomach stapling. And although surgery is an option, you may not want to have a limb removed to lose 25% of your weight.
The prescription for weight loss is a simple program: discipline in your eating and dedication to your workouts. Discipline and dedication. Easy to think about, difficult to accomplish. But put these two powerful steps together and you’ll be losing weight just like they do on Biggest Loser.
Getting the right calories in (no, having one slice of cheesecake for the day in lieu of healthy meals and being happy about sticking to your caloric intake for the day is not an option), and ensuring that you’re sticking to a program that will improve your strength, flexibility, and endurance, you’ll be well on your way.
How do you figure out what’s right for you? Calories in, calories out. If you need someone to push you to do it, or you just don’t want to bother with all the math, get a personal trainer, hire a nutritionist. It may seem expensive, but what’s your life worth?
Two easy steps: eat right, play hard. Now, just to put it into practice. That’s always the hard part.
