Losing weight old school vs. new school
New School: B.J. Rains: "I'm not an expert, I'm just a regular guy who decided to make a change in my life. If any of my experiences can help at least one person then it will be worth it." -- B.J. Rains
B.J. lost his weight (30 pounds) the old fashioned way at first-- exercise and better eating habits. He was always active and played sports but by his own admission he "loves to eat." At first he joined a gym and enlisted the help of a personal trainer-- Tim Siskey.
In 2014 B.J. decided he wanted to jump-start his weight and he did the Advocare 24-Day Challenge where he lost about 20 pounds. If you would like to find out about either his trainer or Advocare, email B.J. at firstname.lastname@example.org. He liked his results with Advocare so much that he has recently become a distributor.
Originally for the first 30 pounds, B.J. cut out sodas, cut back on alcohol, and tried to eat healthy meals. He began losing weight, then when he hit a plateau he increased his running and found he really enjoyed the feeling he got when he woke up early to be sure he had time to get in a good run. Now, with the help of some supplements from a local supplement store he continues with his exercise plan. After about a year of losing the weight he eats basically what he wants but continues the running, exercise, and has added more weight lifting. He wants others to know if he can do it so can you. One thing that really helped B.J. was the "buddy system." He enlisted the help of his fiance and they kept each other accountable in the early stages. If you decide to start a diet it might be helpful to do it with someone.
Old School: Rob Rains: "My problem is I love to eat. I love all the food sports fans love, like burgers, fries, nachos, etc. but once you hit a certain age it's time to take control of your health."-- Rob Rains.
As as of February 2014 Rob has lost 40 pounds in about a year. The first thing he did was cut out sodas. "Cutting out sodas has made a world of difference," Rains said. "I have not had a headache since and I just feel better." Then, after a high cholesterol check, on the advice of his doctor he decided to lose weight. It's a work in progress, but if he can start on a plan, you can do it too. He is not a big fitness guy, but he has added walking to his daily regiment. He is cutting out sweets, fried food and cutting back on bread-- with occasional breaks so he can stay on track. Rob's goal is not a quick weight loss, it is to continue on a healthy path in hopes of living a healthy life.
