Michael Skelfo shows his impressive transformation

The famous Boston chef Michael Scelfo not only serves delicious food to the city's residents and visitors, but also likes to eat well himself. Over time, this resulted in his being quite overweight, which resulted in high blood pressure, depressed mood, and other health problems. So he decided to start losing weight and managed to lose 40 kilograms in 4 months.

He shared the secret of his success with Eat This, Not That!, an online publication that specializes in healthy eating and lifestyle. In short, Skelfo owes his impressive weight loss to following a regimented diet and physical activity. But he told us about the important nuances that helped him even exceed his initial plans - at the start, the man was going to lose 20 extra pounds in six months.

First of all, the chef limited his food intake, setting a limit of 1500 calories per day. He also revised his diet, giving preference to protein foods, vegetables, and a moderate amount of fruit. At the same time, Skelfo cut out sugar, reduced his intake of carbohydrates, oils and fats, and minimized dairy products. But now that the excess weight is gone, he still allows himself a little bit of delicious food on weekends. At the same time, the man regularly reviews his calorie intake. He does this with his doctor, who helps him monitor his health.

As for physical activity, Skelfo began to add some fairly simple exercises to his diet, such as walking and planks - "nothing too crazy," as the chef described his workouts. Later, his arsenal of exercises began to gradually expand. Now that his weight has dropped from more than 125 kg to 85 kg, he is also working on tightening his body and pumping his muscles.

Skelfo advised people who want to lose weight to focus on their goal and believe in themselves.
