Listen, the only way to lose weight is to work hard. Mind over matter. Most people know that if you burn more calories then you consume you will lose weight. Well if it is as simple as that, then why is 65% of America obese? Laziness, plain and simple! Starving yourself will only help you in the short term, and hurt you in the long run. Make a hard decision to once and for all push yourself farther than you thought and break the habits. Quick and simple, replace your bread and pasta products with fresh vegetables. Broccoli, green beans, and asparagus are great starters. Eat dinner at a reasonable time, and your snack should be a quality protein shake made with water about 2 hours after dinner giving yourself time before bed. Next, find a workout that will push you. Intensity and dedication will solve your workout blues!
