hey guys it's wengie here today I wanted to do another video all about my diet experience because you guys love these videos and today I was actually browsing through some of my old photos on Facebook because my friend was like I can never imagine you like you're tiny I could never imagine you any bigger than you are now and I was like I swear I was bigger so I looked through my old Facebook photo and I found this one and I'll pop it up on the screen right now and it's just like super surprised me because I realized how far I have come so those of you guys that are still you know going through your lifestyle changes and if you're trying to lose weight just basically don't worry because I think it's definitely a time thing and it's really well known that habits take 60 to 90 days to kick and if your habits take 90 days to kick then you gotta wait at least three months for you to see sort of any kind of change that you want to see I mean there are fad diets where you do do something extremely different for a short period of time but I don't feel like they're the right way to go about losing weight it doesn't last if you want to change

how you weigh or how you look it needs to be sort of like a routine that you work in and it's like a habit that you develop and it needs to change your old habits as well and I just feel like fad diets don't do that I feel like it's really important to share with you guys that weight gain it doesn't just happen to you there may be a moment in time when you realize that it has happened but it actually is a buildup of all your habits put together that led you to that moment and you may not know what these habits are or you probably don't even realize you're doing it but a lot of the time weight gain or even weight loss as well it's just a result of a change in habits so I mean there's a lot of research that goes into looking at people's habits and how to change them but one thing that's in common with all of them is just time you need to give it enough time for you to get used to it you need sort of like self-control because a huge thing I mean if you always you know don't control yourself you'll find that you'll never stick to a new habit it's that ninety days is so painful because it's like kicking an old habit

and old habits die hard so if you don't change it permanently you actually revert back quite quickly and looking at my head like eating habits now they have changed dramatically so I'm gonna pop another photo up for you right now this is what I look like at a time and these were my eating habits at that time I had supper every night at 12 o'clock for supper I would actually dip potato chips in avocado and that would be my supper a lot of the time and that would be sort of like my dessert after supper I would also have maybe like a pasta or maybe like a frozen dinner or something like that and then I'd finish off with chips so that would be my habit like I would do that almost every single day without fail in addition I started drinking soft drinks which I never drank for a long time and I cut soft drinks out for a very long time but I started drinking soft drinks because my boyfriend at the time who I lived with and that's like going to be a huge influence are what kind of habits you develop he loves soft drinks so I started buying them from the supermarket and when they're there in the fridge you just drink them because it's easy and when you eat chips I mean

nothing goes better with chips than some soft drink right so then I did that and then on top of that I ate out a lot because I used to go dancing a lot and you used to go really late and then you wouldn't have time to cook so we'd all be out and we'd all have like a social dinner out after class or something so I always ate out and because when you eat out the portion it's a big and you don't want to waste the food and yet because you've just eaten sort of three-quarters of it and there's like a quarter left you don't want to take it home so you kind of just finish it cuz you don't waste food so that's another habit I did I ate out like three or four times a week with friends after dance so it was pretty much those two or three habits it wasn't a lot of habits but they oh another habit I had was my boyfriend at the time eat a lot I started cooking more food so I would never cook that much for myself but because there was a hungry boy eating I cooked more food and I didn't want to waste it and it wasn't enough to kind of portion out for a second meal so I just put the whole portion in my plate in his

plate and I kind of would portion it similar because you know at the time I was just so why don't I eat almost the same amount as him why not like I just cooked up with the portion cuz in my head times 2 is easier than 1 and a half and me eating half and him eating 1 that makes sense umm but yeah so I had bigger meals as well those 4 habits like it wasn't a lot it was only those four habits over a period of time of like a year had a huge dramatic effect on how much of weight I put on and yeah I had a lot of extra weight and now that I think about it I still vaguely remember it but I don't actually when I sat down my belly would hang over my pants I would do a lot more slimming photoshopping on my photos for my blog and there was just a lot of factors that led to me going oh my god and having that aha moment so yeah I just wanted to share that with you guys because I think it's really important for you guys to be realistic about how long it takes for you to lose weight and to change your habits and that's the most important thing I do not recommend any sort of fad diets

Detox's are fine but don't rely on that for weight loss if you want to detox yourself that's fine but you can't really expect a long-term change when you just detox for a month and then go back to your old eating habits and I also don't condone starving yourself because you can actually eat a lot of healthy food and still lose weight as long as you choose the right food so that's like super important you don't think that the only way to lose weight is actually to not eat because that is incredibly wrong and incredibly harmful for your body and I can't really emphasize that enough I actually developed this book which is like my seven-day eating plan and you guys have always asked what I eat on a daily basis what you guys should eat on a daily basis if you want to lose weight like what you should cook and everything so I put together this ebook and it has seven days worth of meals for you guys it's very easy to cook with very easy ingredients and it's kind of like a fusion between Western food and Japanese Korean and Chinese food so it's a fusion of those kind of styles of food and the great thing about this ebook is that one

dollar of it goes to charity so at the end of the year donate one dollar from each book to charity which will be awesome and I think a lot of you guys would benefit from this so if you're interested I've got the link down below you can find it on my blog as well there's quite a few girls doing it and you know I'm really excited to see the feedback because I love seeing people kind of log their journeys if you guys get this book and decide to follow it please log your journey for me and please give me feedback because I really want to improve it and help you guys stick to a sort of diet plan that's healthy that means you get all your nutrients and that you also lose weight and get to your goal as well that is my ultimate aim for this book and I'm happy to change it and adapt to improve it according to your feedback so I'd really love to hear from you guys I'm gonna be posting like a few like healthy recipes as well on my channel because you guys have been asking for a cooking video for so long and I haven't gotten around to filming one of them but I'm definitely gonna film a few for you guys and put it on my channel as well so please stay

tuned for that I hope you guys enjoyed this video I just thought I'd do a video for you guys that you know just to motivate you guys on your healthy lifestyle change journey it's very very hard it's not easy the times where I sat there and I would crave chips I still crave chips and machers like to this day I just don't eat it as often whereas before I would kind of buckle to my cravings like every day or every other day now I only do it like once a month or when I feel like I've eaten really well for the day I would reward myself and that's okay as long as you keep track of like how many calories and what eating and whether you're doing well that's changed a lot for me and you'll find that once you start eating healthy you won't crave junk food as much it's kind of like a downward spiral once you stop eating junk food you just keep craving it and craving it and it's just like a bad bad like it's like a stone rolling down the hill I'm really bad with my example today I'm really sorry but yeah anyways that's all for the tangent I was gonna end this video yeah so I wanted to create this video to encourage you guys so leave your
