The Secrets of Weight-Loss:

Operation GQ

My name is Sobora Duy but most people in the Asian community know me as DJ Thailo. Over 550 days ago, I started a weight loss journey called Operation GQ, which consists of blogging about my daily thoughts on Facebook and on my website. I had to find a way to keep myself motivated. The greatest battle of all is the mental aspect because anyone can go to the gym. The real challenge is to do it on a consistent basis with discipline. This is where Facebook really helped me to keep my motivation going. Facebok is an excellent way to create a support system. Your family, friends, and co-workers can play a huge role in helping you reach your goal. I started by putting a shirtless picture of myself on day 1 and the deadline to show results was every 100 days. From day 1 to over 500 days later, I went from 205 lbs to 160 lbs. Can anyone do this?

turn your weight loss journey into a LIFESTYLE! Once you focus on being healthy as opposed to focus on the image in front of the mirror, the fat trapped in your body will eventually go away. EATING HEALTHY is the most important KEY to see results. A nice healthy breakfast is primordial to start off your day properly. I also always drink a protein shake and eat fast digesting carbs within 30 min of my workout. Reading nutrition labels is also very important. Asian sauces such as oyster, soy, & hoisin sauce are very high in sodium. Avoid carbs late night also! The more carbs you eat throughout the day, the more your appetite will increase. Therefore, the more calories you will consume. One pound of fat equals 3500 calories. To lose weight, you basically have to burn more calories than what you’re consuming in a week. I try to keep my meals the size of my palm. I eat 6-8 small meals a day and drink at least 1 gallon of water a day.

Once you study nutrition, the human body, fitness, and truly develop a passion for it; sky’s the limit! RESULTS will come! Good luck and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Sobora Duy aka DJ Thailo http://www.operationgq.com http://www.facebook.com/thailo
