Diet isn't easy, but weight loss is simple

Riddle me this: what is both difficult and simple? Weight loss. Dieting, calorie cutting, food swaps, portion control, mindful eating are not easy. They take work, discipline and sacrifice. But despite the challenges, weight loss is simple, a simple formula, that is. 

And that's the good news, or part of the good news about losing weight. It's not rocket science, just simple biology. Eat less, lose weight. It's almost guaranteed. Even if you have other mitigating health conditions, weight loss is possible, with a few simple changes in diet. If fact, it's almost impossible to avoid losing weight. 

I'm not saying that you won't have times where you burn fat less efficiently. Hormonal cycles, sleep problems, illness, lifestyle change can impact weight loss. If you've been in a regimented diet, you will plateau occasionally. But it's still simple to keep going by just mixing it up a little (more on that later). 

Stay tuned for more on how I lost 100 pounds. (left picture is 2011 and right is this 2021). And if you're working to lose weight, good for you!! I'm so proud of you for taking that difficult step! May you find success. Love, Mar <3
