What’s Your Routine?
October 5, 2015
It really is possible to lose weight naturally, just by using motivation and modification as your main guidelines. Just ask Iris Salsman.
The 68-year-old has battled weight issues for years, saying she could always lose weight but never keep it off. “In 2012, I decided I was tired of going up and down and I was going to do it my way,” she says. “I figured out that I was setting unrealistic goals and not changing my habits for good.” When Salsman devised a program that had her eating healthy and exercising regularly, she lost 135 pounds in about 14 months. “I went to a couple of nutritionists and did a lot of research,” she explains. “I focused on reducing bad carbs because they can be counterproductive and have a lot of calories. So I allotted myself a set amount at each meal (45 grams for breakfast and lunch, 60 grams for dinner) and for two snacks a day (30 grams). As time went on, I realized I didn’t even need that many.”
