Hi guys welcome to TRN’s blog post, so today I’m gonna be sharing with you guys how I lost 60 pounds. This is one of the like the most common questions I get asked in real life like from people that I know how to lose weight?, and it’s just like weird how I’ve never actually like made a video about fitness and healthy, eating and my weight loss story because it’s something that I’m really proud of. I guess I’m kind of scared because I envisioned this moment like when I started you know and it’s like now I’m finally where I want it to be.
It’s gonna be really hard to kind of wrap everything that I’ve learned in one post, so if you guys have any questions, please comment down below.
Okay so let’s get into the tips so that you guys can start losing weight.
1. Drink a lot of Water
Drink water that is the most important step if you don’t change your eating habits. And you just start drinking water and please not drinking like “pop or juice” and everything. Oh my god you lose so much weight your body actually like confuses thirst for hunger. So sometimes if I notice like I’m randomly hungry even though I just eat like a ton of food. I’ll drink like a big glass of water am I like hunger will go away. Because I was just really thirsty like when I started drinking water and stops drinking pop, I noticed I just felt really good I never realized how thirsty I felt all the time and how I never felt refreshed is, because I never drank water like when you drink coke and juice like it just makes you so thirsty.
When you drink, your calories that is the most fattening part of your diet and juice. Believe it or not juice actually contains the same amount of sugar as coke. When you eat fruit like an apple, it’s healthy for you to eat. One Apple in one sitting, but if like you eat six or seven apples in that one cup of juice, it’s just too much.
Whenever I got a craving to drink something else other than water, I would just like put lemons or limes. I would drink a lot of green tea honestly, any teas good as long as like there’s no sugar and milk added. I only drink one sugary drink a day and that’s my coffee in the morning because I love my french vanilla coffees and I’ll never givethat up. But for the rest of the day, all I drink is water another good thing too about water is if you drink a full glass of water before your meals and when you wake up in the morning it actually boosts your metabolism.
Hot water reduces your appetite, so if you drink hot water or tea before or after your meal it’s gonna like make you not eat as much. Which goes onto my second tip actually. 😀
2. Eat until you’re satisfied
It’s because it actually takes your body, I think like 20 minutes to let your brain know that you’re full. And it was weird at first like I still wanted to eat more, but when I got to that point I would drink a big cup of green tea. So then while I was drinking the tea it was reducing my appetite and then by the time, I was finished the tea like I wasn’t hungry anymore. If you eat until you’re full you’re actually gonna be overeating and stretching out your stomach.
3. Swap out your white bread, white pasta, white rice for whole-grain
I know it’s kind of shitty, I’ve girl I loved or boy I loved my white bread. I actually do like white bread, but I haven’t eaten white bread in so long, except for what I’m eating pizza. So I just googled why it’s bad because I know it’s good for you to switch but I just don’t really know the scientific reason behind it. Wholemeal flour is made from whole wheat grains, while white flour is made only from the central part of the grain. So I guess they use two different flours. Well I never actually knew that huh… Reason why you eat whole grain is because your body’s going to take a lot longer to digest it which makes you full longer.
4. Start eating on a smaller plate
Honestly this just tricks your brains, but if you start eating on a smaller plate you’re actually gonna take less food and avoid overeating.
5. Eat spicy food
I actually never did this until recently, because I just don’t want to make trouble with spicy food. But now I do. But spicy food contains throughout what it’s called capsaicin which boosts your metabolism and actually reduces hunger. So for all of these spicy food lovers out there, eat more chili, eat jalapenos. All of that and it will make you lose weight.
6. Don’t buy it you’re not gonna eat it
I don’t buy chocolates, I don’t buy white bread, I just don’t buy food that I know I shouldn’t be eating. I just literally have my whole kitchen it’s just all healthy food. I know if I buy it I’m gonna eat it. My grandparents actually brought me a huge chocolate bar from England huge! And I was so tempted. I ate it in two days literally, it was two pounds of chocolate and I ate the whole damn thing like how can you go on living if you know there’s a huge chocolate bar in your cupboard. It’s just buy healthy food, when you go out if you you’re craving chocolate go out buy yourself a chocolate bar and then come home eat it. But I mean don’t buy things that you’re gonna eat later like ice cream. It’s honestly so tempting and if you just don’t have it like you ain’t gonna eat it. You’re gonna have to go out of your house to go eat it and honestly it’s so much work you’re just gonna eat the healthy shit in your in your kitchen.
7. To keep pictures of what you want to look like or your past self like on your phone wallpaper pictures on your desktop
Just kind of keep reminding yourself of your goal and where you want to be actually like Kat, some pictures of Victoria’s Secret models on my phone. And I’d look them when I would feel like discouraged. You’re like unmotivated I don’t look like a Victoria’s Secret model now like my body type just isn’t like theirs but I mean, it really motivated me once I got to like the weight that I am now. I was just so proud of my body and how much I achieved, I didn’t care that I didn’t look like them. I was just using them as motivation, so I was like “oh my god they’re so confident, they’re so beautiful” that’s what I want to look like bla..bla..bla..
8. Weigh yourself once a week
Don’t weigh yourself every day because you’re gonna get discouraged. So your weight like kind of goes up and down throughout the day. One day you might be like losing weight the next day you might have gained like four pounds. Honestly just weigh yourself once a week, in the morning before you eat or drink anything with no clothes on. I always chose Wednesday’s because that was just the middle of the week because honestly, there’s other factors like if you’re drinking a lot of salt, your body might retain more water which might make you gain more weight. So don’t feel discouraged, just weigh yourself once a week and you’ll notice you know you’re on track.
9. Do cardio and weight lifts
Honestly ladies this is for you building muscle is gonna make your metabolism higher when you’re resting and when you’re losing weight especially. If you’re losing a lot of weight trust exercising and trying to like tone your body is going to reduce.
Whenever I’m not motivated to work out, I’ll always think is Khloe Kardashian working out, is Beyonce working out, Victoria’s Secret model working out. And the answer is probably yes and snapchat always confirms it though I’m always just like if they can struggle, if they can look bombers, I’m gonna struggle too and just do it.
Don’t ever think of it as like an isolated hobby because there’s a shit ton on other people working out and struggling at the same time as you, so that’s that always motivates me.
okay so the most important step is don’t die yet guys! Change your lifestyle because trust me, once you get going you’re never gonna want to go back. I eat healthy and I got exercise and I feel so good that I just would never want to go back to like how I was before.
The reason why models and athletes look the way they do compared to like normal everyday people is because their lifestyles so different like from ours. They eat different they exercise a shit-ton and like that’s why their bodies look the way they do so. If you want your body to look a certain way, you need to change your lifestyle because your body is a symptom of what your habits are. So if you choose to eat really unhealthy and not exercise your body’s gonna look like that and it’s like a slow change that happens. So if you start eating healthy and exercising, trust me even if it takes like a year it is gonna change your body’s, gonna look so good.
I don’t care what anyone says, any kind of healthy slim products or else. I believe It’s will not work in the long run. Yes it might make you slimmer but it’s not healthy and it’s not gonna stay off. Trainers might make you look smaller because it’s a corset but I mean why don’t you just get a smaller waist instead of just trying to fake a smaller waist, so don’t buy into all this hype it’s actually like ridiculous how greedy people are for money feel. People should just be sharing healthy ideas, so we can all be healthy together. I’m gonna tell you guys right now I never paid a penny to anyone I don’t even go to the gym. I exercise and ship I didn’t pay gym membership. Weight loss isn’t a quick fix it took me a full year to lose 60 pounds.
The whole point of me making this post is I want to change someone’s perspective on dieting and healthy eating, because honestly guys if I can do it and I love my food, I love my chocolate, you can do it.
I think it’s something that’s really important to me because I’ve been there I know how it feels. To feel like so unattractive and feel like you don’t have any control over your body, well let me tell you today, you do and if you follow these tips I promise you will start seeing results and you can say bye-bye to all those who maybe talked behind your back who make you feel like shit.
