A little background: in the last six months, dad has lost 45 pounds. He went from minorly obese to his high school weight. Over dinner one evening, I interviewed him to find out his secret.
So what’s your weight loss secret?
Burn more calories than you consume. It’s just simple math, son.
Yeah, but how did you stay motivated?
Motivation’s got noithing to do with it. Just eat less than your body burns.
Then why did it take you forty years to lose it?
Fine. So motivation does have something to do with it.
