Office jobs are the new cancer. I started mine at the age of 23; the first thing I noticed was how out of shape everyone around me was. Fast forward two years and I added some weight - my body was breaking down, mentally I was a mess as well. Barely being able to wake up in the morning; around 2PM, I would crash hard - and once I got home, I couldn't barely do anything physical. My energy level simply wasn't there. At 80kg last year, I went on vacation - ate lots and gained an additional 3kg. I returned to work carrying my bad 'vacation habits' - I gained an additional 2kg. That's when I put my foot down. I am young and I needed to get into healthier habits then, or I would suffer from it later... when losing fat becomes harder. I started the **** diet, and it worked wonders. Kept my carbs under 20g in any given day; I went back to my old habits of only eating once a day too. Three weeks into **** and my mental clarify had never been sharper, it became sharper as time went on. I could go home after 8 hours of work, and have enough energy to go for a 5KM run. I joined my gym and started heavy cardio exercises. I went from 85kg to 67kg in 4 months. Some tips I may share; don't compare your body, your gains or losses, with other people's. People's bodies react differently under a new diet, or when following an exercise routine. Don't think of it as something that has a beginning and an end, think of it as a lifestyle change that you'll stick with forever. The hardest part of anything that requires strict discipline is usually at the beginning, when your commitments are questioned; don't think too much about it, just do it (too much thinking and you'll talk yourself out of it) - and a few months down the line, you won't be able to go on your day without it. Best of luck.
