  • Hi 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 also I swear I was bigger

  • So I went and looked through my old Facebook photos and I found this one

  • And I'll pop it up on the screen right now

  • And it just like super surprised me because I realized how far I have come

  • For those of you guys that are still, you know, going through your life-style 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 got to wait at least 3 months

  • For you to see any kind of change that you want to see

  • I mean there are fad diets when you do do something extremely different for a short period of time

  • But I don't feel like that's the right way to go about losing weight. It doesn't last

  • If you want to change how you weight 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 might be a moment in time when you realise that it has happened

  • But it actually is a build-up 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 realise you're doing it

  • But a lot of the time weight gain or even weight loss as well is just a result of a change in habits

  • So, I mean there's a lot of research that goes into looking at people 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 that's a huge thing

  • I mean if you always, you know, don't control yourself you will find that you will never stick to any habit

  • It's that 90 days is so painful because it's like kicking in 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 like eating habits now they have changed dramatically

  • So I'm going to pop another photo up for you right now. This is what I look like at the time

  • And these where my eating habits at the time

  • I had supper every night at twelve 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 frozen dinner or something like that

  • And then I finished 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

  • 'Cause my boyfriend at the time, who I lived with

  • And that's like going to be a huge influence on what kind of habits you develop

  • He loved 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 'cause I used to go dancing a lot

  • And I used to go really late and then you wouldn't have time to cook

  • So we'd all be out and we all have like a social dinner out after class or something

  • So I always ate out and because when you eat out the portions are big and you don't want to waste the food

  • And yeah, 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 'cause you don't want to 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 ate 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 my plate and his plate and I kind of would portion it similar

  • Because you know, at the time I just thought why don't I eat almost the same amount as him?

  • Why not like I just cooked a double portion?

  • 'Cause in my head times 2 is easier than 1 and a half and me eating half and him eating one, that makes sense

  • But yeah, so I had bigger meals as well

  • Those four 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 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 photoshoping on my photos for my blog

  • And there were just a lot of factors that led to me going like OMG 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

  • Detoxes are fine, but don't rely on them for weight loss. If you want to detox yourself, that's fine

  • But you can't really expect a long time 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

  • And don't think that the only way to lose weight is actually to not eat

  • Because that's incredibly wrong and incredibly harmful for your body

  • And I can't really emphasise that enough

  • I actually developed this book which is like my 7 day eating plan

  • And you guys have always asked what I eat on a daily basis

  • And 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 7 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 $1 of it goes to charity

  • So at the end of the year I'll donate $1 from each book to charity which would 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 of few girls doing it and you know

  • I'm really excited to see the feedback 'cause I love seeing people kind of log their journeys

  • If you guy get this book and decide to follow it, please log your journey for me and please give me feedback

  • 'Cause 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 it and improve it according to your feedback

  • So I'd really love to hear from you guys

  • I'm going to be posting like a few like healthy recipes as well on my channel

  • 'Cause you guys have been asking for cooking videos for so long and I haven't got around to filming one of them

  • But I'm definitely going to film a few for you guys and put them on my channel as well

  • So please stay tuned for that

  • I hope you guys enjoy this video

  • I just thought I'd do a video for you guys

  • That, you know, just motivate you guys on your healthy life style 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 Maccas, 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 on what you're 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 start eating junk food you just keep craving it and craving it

  • And it's just like a bad, bad...it's like a stone rolling downhill

  • I'm really bad with my example today, I'm really sorry

  • But yeah, anyway, that's off on a tangent; I was going to end this video

  • Yeah, I wanted to create this video to encourage you guys
