FitSeven: Why did you decide to change?
I think this is a typical story - parents and friends since childhood have repeated to me that I’m not fat at all, but that “this is a wide bone”. I thought that I had such genetics, and nothing could be done with myself. But honestly, I always wanted to have a relief press.
Two years ago I had the opportunity to change my lifestyle - I moved to another city, began to eat independently and began to pay attention to what I eat. It quickly showed good results, and I decided to start playing sports.
FitSeven: And what is your result?
I apologize right away that the photographs I presented may not reflect the whole essence of metamorphosis, since being complete I didn’t think that I would ever take part in such competitions and was embarrassed to shoot with a naked torso.
In the first six weeks, I lost 5 sizes at the waist - before starting to lose weight, I weighed 84 kg and bought jeans in 34 sizes, and then the 29th became a little big for me. In the next 3 months I lost another 9 kg, as a result, over 4.5 months - 24 kg. With a height of 172, I began to weigh 61 kg.
FitSeven: Tell us about your diet and program.
In fact, everything is quite banal and simple: I refused sweets and fast food, began to eat separately, trying to eat carbohydrates in the morning. Then he started jogging - he ran 5 km every day in about 30 minutes.
In addition, 3-4 times a week after running there was a standard 40-50 minute workout for the main muscle groups. He studied independently, without a coach, he came up with the program, but in the end it was close to the comprehensive FitSeven program .
FitSeven: Have you taken fat burners?
The only thing I decided to use during the weight loss period is L-carnitine . I took it three times a day of training (in the morning, as well as before and after training). I think that it turned out to lose 15 kg in such a short period precisely due to the combination of running and L-carnitine.
I tried more powerful fat burners, but they contain a lot of caffeine and other stimulants - I felt unpleasant nausea, my heart beat constantly. In the end, I decided not to experiment with health, and chose a safe supplement.
FitSeven: Errors that you would not repeat
Probably, I would not try to lose weight as quickly as possible - to lose weight is better gradually, because it is safer for health and skin condition. When you reduce your calorie intake too sharply, the body begins to burn not only fat, but also muscles.
In addition, the mistake of my training was that I began to intensively do tilts to the sides with weights. At first, oblique muscles appeared, but then they simply turned into sides, which I still try to remove to make a V-shaped figure.
FitSeven: What are your future plans? Will you start working for the mass?
Honestly, when the bones started hanging around my shoulders, I really realized that I didn’t like being thin. Six months ago, I started a training program to gain muscle mass and have already gained 7 kg. Now my weight is 68 kg.
Ahead of the winter season, and you can focus on hard training for muscle growth, without fear of gaining a little fat. We’ll see what happens by May, but when you achieve results, you always want to set other goals.
Your advice to those who are starting to lose weight
The main reason that most people do not lose weight, in my opinion, is the lack of motivation and the presence of laziness. I strictly decided for myself how I want to see myself, and strove for this. As a result, the result was not long in coming.
In addition, it is important to understand that you will have to be friends with sports all the time - losing weight once, but without changing your eating habits and lifestyle, you will quickly gain lost weight and return to your initial "fat" state.
Michael: “If you are told from childhood that you have“ poor genetics ”or“ wide bone, ”and that is why you have extra weight, don’t believe it. In reality, almost any figure can be adjusted. The main thing is real motivation for success. ”
