Brendon: I was 85kg at my heaviest just before I saw you…I am currently around 68-70kg (lets take the pre-holiday weight 😉 )
Alex: What was the most difficult part of the diet plan?
Brendon: The hardest part was learning to cut down on portion sizes, stopping eating constantly just for the sake of it as well as being disciplined to eat healthier when having/going out for dinner such as ordering salad or veg instead of chips with a burger/steak. Also being disciplined to maintain ones weight/eating plan once weight goal has been reached.
Alex: What was the easiest?
Brendon: The easiest part was watching the weight loss become consistent once the diet plan had become routine. It was also great to see each week drop in pant size/belt notches. Also once a certain amount of weight had been lost and the diet was able to be adjusted it was nice to start having cheat meals such as pizzas, cake etc…
Alex: Can you share some tips and give advice to others in your shoes, just starting the diet plan?
Brendon: In terms of any tips…don’t think that by going to dietitian you will be made to starve and not be allowed anything such as carbs, good bread etc…portion control is what I found to make the biggest difference. Try setting an end date/goal for trying to achieve the weight loss…as you know I wanted to lose weight for my sister’s wedding so I made this my goal. Further tips (excuse the essay) would just be to do things smartly and healthily and don’t try starve yourself to reach your goal quicker.
