A Healthy Approach to Dieting

Riakam said that he lost weight primarily because of his diet, which he focused on for the first two years of his weight loss journey. He didn't follow a specific diet plan; instead, he made healthier food choices and monitored his calorie intake. He advised trying things out and seeing what diet approach works best for you.

Adding Exercise to His Routine

After losing 50lbs from his diet, Riakam decided to add exercise to his routine. He focused on weightlifting, which allowed him to build muscle while losing fat. This combination helped him to achieve his final weight loss goal. However, he also advised against overexerting oneself, warning to start small and gradually build up.

In Conclusion

Riakam's story provides hope and inspiration to people who seek to achieve their weight loss goals. His journey shows that a healthy approach to diet and exercise can lead to impressive results. However, it's important to keep in mind that everyone's journey is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. It's essential to try things out for yourself and experiment until you find an approach that works best for your body and lifestyle.
