What advice do you have for others who want to lose weight?
My advice for anyone who wants to lose weight is to focus on your diet. Weight loss is 80% diet and 20% exercise. A good clean diet that is high in protein and low in sugar, carbs, and fat is key in losing weight and maintaining weight loss. As far as exercise, commit to 30-60 min a day and mix it up…Strength training, cardio, and core. However, if you can’t do that just get up and go walk!
