Neil Burns weighed almost 700 pounds in 2010. He couldn’t walk. He could hardly move. His life was miserable.
Fortunately, Neil woke up one morning and decided it was time for a change. He completely altered his lifestyle. He drastically cut back on food intake and started making healthier choices. He also began exercising regularly. Miraculously (note the sarcasm), his weight began to drop.
The video below tells his story.
As you’ll see within the clip, Neil didn’t follow an elite or overly sophisticated exercise and diet plan. He pushed himself in the gym and was consistent with his diet. There isn’t anything fancy about what he did, yet he still lost over 300 pounds.
So much can be taken from his drastic turnaround. He’s yet another example that almost anything works if you are willing to work. The specifics often matter less than the effort put forth by the individual. Weight loss isn’t nearly as complicated as many would like us to believe.
Commit yourself to change, hold yourself accountable, and keep showing up ready to work. If something isn’t working, make a change and/or work harder. Don’t get lost in complexity. Simple solutions do exist and work as well as anything.
