Starting in January 2019, I removed meat from my diet and became a pescatarian (a vegetarian who eats fish/seafood). I immediately felt better, I began to lose weight, and my skin started to clear up.

What advice do you have for people who want to lose weight?
You have to have a driving force that compels you to do it. What motivates you to want to lose the weight for yourself, not for anyone else? Once you find your inspiration, pick a diet plan that best fits your lifestyle, and that will not hurt your pocket. Also, make sure it’s sustainable for at least two months straight.
If you are new to exercise, start with walking. Then, gradually make your workouts more intense. If you stay consistent and stay encouraged, you can do it.
