    How did you look before and after you lost weight?

    The most important part one can pay attention to is their diet, I started following a low carbohydrate,moderate protein and high fat diet. I started losing weight at the rate of 2 pounds per week. Here is a list of things that were staple of my diet during this time. My primary protein sources were fish, eggs, chicken breast, cottage cheese, soybean. My primary sources of carbohydrates were brown rice, whole wheat bread, oats and for fats i used olive oil and peanut butter through out my journey.

    Now to the workout part I trained in the morning after eating a moderate carb fruit like kiwi or apple. I did weight training first then i did cardio session. My weight training session lasted 40 minutes and cardio session lasted around 20 minutes.

    I made diet chart concentrating on following factors.

    1. Ate Plenty of Soluble Fiber.
    2. Avoided Foods That Contain Trans Fats
    3. Stayed away from carbonated drinks and alcohol
    4. Ate adequate amount of proteins
    5. Reduced stress level by managing my routine well
    6. Stayed Away from sugar and processed Food
    7. Running everyday for 20 mins in HIIT style.
    8. Cut all refined carbs intake
    9. Replaced cheap vegetable oil with extra virgin olive oil/coconut oil.
    10. Lift weights at least twice in a week.
    11. Took plenty of restful Sleep.
    12. Tracked my food intake and exercise
    13. Ate fatty fish like salmon every week
    14. Stopped drinking packaged fruit juices
    15. Added Apple cider Vinegar in my diet.
    16. Ate Probiotic foods.
    17. Practised Intermittent Fasting once every week.
    18. Drank Green tea daily
    19. Most important part was to change things as per my body’s Response.

    Thanks and Good Luck!

    I'm the exact opposite took me years to put on any weight. I gotta eat around 3280 calories just to maintain. Seems everyone is different that way. Keep it up you'll reach your goals

    I was pushing 300lbs and a 50" waist 3 yrs ago after drinking hard for 10 yrs. Now I'm 250 and just dropped to a 40" and a 38" coming up fast. Lifting 5 days and 20 mins treadmill on same days along with diet, zero booze and a lot of experimenting. Just hit 52 yrs.
