10 professional tips from a personal trainer who lost 160 lbs of his body weight
When Joe Bernstein was 25 years old, he weighed 154 kilograms. That's 340 lbs. The diets did not help him.
Then he introduced into his life some simple life habits that led to enormous change in his appearance, and also in his feeling about himself.
Now Joe works as a personal trainer, helping other people make better decisions for a healthier lifestyle.
We suggest you adopt the following habits to achieve better results that will ultimately change your life for the better.
This is what Joe looked like before his change. And here you can also see the amazing results he achieved with the help of the simple habits he adopted.
1. Stop drinking calories
This means that it's best to avoid carbonated beverages, juices and sweet teas. Even if this is the only habit you adopt, it can help you lose 22 kg in three months. Sometimes we don't even notice that we are drinking 2000 calories a day.
2. Forget about prepared lunches
And instead prepare a homemade lunch with healthy and nutritious food
3. Spend less time on the road
Bicycles will help you for several hours of personal time and at the same time taking care of your nerves. In your free time you can cook healthy meals or exercise.
4. Learn to cook delicious meals
And how to enjoy cooking. Recipes from the internet, cooking shows, and cooking classes with nice people will help you make your first step into becoming a chef.
5. Try to understand the value of natural food
It is best to choose local and fresh products that will stimulate your taste buds and help you lose weight
6. Adopt a dog
A morning walk with your furry friend is the best thing you can do to stimulate your metabolism and brain activity. It's not that you must have a dog - the idea is that you need to find a reason to take a walk in the morning.
7. Buy organic food
This is not a marketing matter, it has to do with the habit of choosing better quality food. Yes, the food may be more expensive, but once you give up processed foods, your budget will balance.
8. Pay attention to the quality of the meat
It would definitely be a good idea to increase the amount of vegetarian meals you eat, which means more vegetables, fruits, nuts, etc. If you are not yet ready to give up meat, pay attention to its quality and origin.
9. Leave the relationship that hold you in place
After breaking up with his ex-wife, Joe built himself a new lifestyle - a healthy and conscious life. You do not have to behave in an extreme way. Everyone has relationships that eventually end.
10. Change yourself physically and mentally
In order not to let your weight go back, it is important to do more than exercise and eat right. All the mental work inside your head is very important: from the beginning, when you start getting rid of bad habits, until the moment you understand and feel your 'new self'.
