These days it seems like everybody is trying to shred some fat and lose weight.
All over the Internet, bloggers and health websites provide information on how to get rid of several pounds in a day, and you probably have come across people making suspicious claims and tips about the matter that are unscientific at best or even outright dangerous.
In theory, the trick is simple. To lose weight, all you have to do is eat less and move more. In practice, they must be some of the hardest challenges in life that many people have failed miserably.
There are always the seductive temptations of ice cream, chocolate, potato chips, soda, beer, red meat, and mouth-watering junk foods on every corner of every street.
Combine that with the lack of physical exercise, then you have a recipe for increased waistline.
Losing fat is difficult, but not impossible. You don’t actually need examples and motivations from the success stories of celebrities in keeping a healthy body weight, but in case you do, the following names should be excellent role models.
10 Gordon Ramsay
By the time Gordon Ramsay realized that something had to be done with his body, he had just won his third Michelin star.
It was such a massive achievement to make even the best chef feel like being sprinkled with pride, but not for Ramsay.
Despite his successful career is cooking – which is a blatant understatement – the chef suffered from low-esteem due to his weight gain.
Around 2012, he began taking the effort to lose weight more seriously with a program that included regular exercise three times a week and riding stationary bicycles at home gym.
Ramsay has lost around 56 pounds so far, keeping her weight at steady 196 pounds.
9 Susan Boyle
Born in April 1961 in Blackburn, the Scottish singer Susan Boyle first came to the spotlight in 2009 following her performance for Britain’s Got Talent. Her first album turned out as the best-selling debut album in the UK, of all time.
Several years later she was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, forcing her to cut sugar consumption.
Boyle switched to natural sugars from vegetables and fruits rather than the ready-made type, and so far it has worked great for her. She has lost around 50-pound, and now she looks better than ever.
8 Sam Smith
British singer Sam Smith was not always known for his slender figure, but he pretty much is today.
Smith’s journey to weight loss began five years ago when he opened up about “emotional eating” problem. His exercise routine included regular workout three times a week, focusing on cardio training.
It is not exactly clear how many pounds of weight he has burnt so far, but you can clearly see the transformation on his recent photos. Some fans even call him “the incredible shrinking Sam Smith” now.
Here is one thing about Adele; she always looks amazing.
It had been true many years ago before she started a weight loss program, and it rings truer today with her more ideal shape.
Some say she began losing weight just before her 2016 tour for her album “25” which ran for 13 months.
More importantly the program was never about getting skinnier, but healthier during post-pregnancy and post-surgery recovery.
A major part of the program was making better food choices, and the effect is mind-boggling.
