Colson Smith’s Weight Loss Journey
Colson was looking forward to losing weight for a very long time. The only problem was that he was not getting any time from his busy schedule. However, as Covid-19 shut down the whole world, Smith knew this was the time.
He got a lot of free time by staying home. And while people were going mad by sitting in front of the TV and watching the news, Smith found a way to use the time. He started his weight loss journey by following a tough routine.
Here’s what Smith said about the situation, “It was an opportunity to find out what is important for me and what is not. The time I got in lockdown was really helpful.” He took the help of a professional trainer, Rob Brennan, to prepare his diet plan.
Colson’s Diet Plan
When it comes to diet, Smith doesn’t punish himself by cutting this or that food. He simply turned to organic food. He stopped consuming processed food or food from restaurants. Instead, he would only eat homemade healthy organic food.
Smith also limited alcohol consumption and substituted it with fresh veggies and fruit juices. By cutting down on all unhealthy food, he succeeded in consuming fewer calories. Now, eating fewer calories means that you have fewer calories to burn.
Colson’s Workout Plan
When it comes to workouts, Smith’s main focus was on running. He ran a lot. Smith ran on the lawn and on the streets of his neighborhood. Whatever calories he burned, he burned by running. It requires a lot of energy and is one of the ways in which the most calories can be burned.
He would start his day by running for an hour around the neighborhood. After that, Colson would eat breakfast. And after breakfast, there was running for a mile waiting in his daily routine. He also ran for an hour in the evenings.
This eating less and running more strategy proved to be very efficient for him. He got rid of extra and unhealthy pounds that were consuming his energy and slowing him down for years.
Before & After Weight Loss
After following a healthy routine, Colson now weighs around 170 pounds, as compared to his old weight of 310 pounds. He has lost 140 pounds along the way which is a very big achievement.
