炭水化物抜きに、エクササイズDVD夜21時以降食べないダイエット……世のなかにダイエットの方法は山のようにあり、いろいろ試してみた人も多いだろう。でも成功しないのは……続かないからである。どの方法も効果はあるだろうが、日常生活のなかでの継続が難しいのだ。 

いま、とてもシンプルな方法でダイエットを成功させた男が注目されている。小難しいことは一切なし、きっと誰もがやってるある習慣を少し変えたことを契機に、150キロもの減量に成功したというのだ。

・シンプルすぎる方法で減量に成功

彼の名はパスクアーレ・ブロッコさん(31)。過去の彼の写真を見ると、見事なまでにブリンブリン。ギャングスタラッパーみたいな風貌で、出会ったら光の速さで逃げたくなるほどの迫力型巨漢だった。その頃の体重はなんと605ポンド(約274キロ)もあったという。

そんな彼が、3年で330ポンド(約150キロ)の減量に成功! その方法とは「お買い物ダイエット」。お腹が空いたら、近所のスーパーまで歩いて買い物に行くというものだ。

I made a life changing decision and it wasn't just to lose weight it was to finally start loving myself!!! On the left was a couple weeks before i started my journey 2 1/2 years ago! I weighed 605 lbs over 49% bf & just unhappy with the way I looked! Picture on the right was a few weeks ago 283lbs 11%bf and loving my new body! Even tho I'm so far from where I want to be I'm closer then I've ever been before. I never thought in a million years I would be working to be a bodybuilder! That's what it's all about doing things you never done to get places you never been making forward progress, don't ever get discourage because you're not where you want to be just be happy about where you came from and proud of every step forward! #transformationtuesday #transformation #bodytransformation #consistency #hardwork #dedication #itspossible #possiblepat #PaTential #bodybuilding #focus #focused #fatloss #fitness #fitfam #levels #dreams #goals #forwardprogress #loveyourself #bodybuildingnation

・お腹が空いたらスーパーまで歩いていく

お腹が空いたら、1マイル先(約1.6キロ)のスーパーまで歩いて買い物に行くようになったブロッコさん。買い物ということは……ええーっ、結局食べちゃうの!? しかし、この方法でまずは2年半で200ポンド(約90キロ)の減量に成功したのだとか。

確かに、わざわざウォーキングやジョギングとなると「よし、やるぞ!」という意気込みが必要だ。しかし、お買い物は日々のことだし、何より空腹という強い欲求がある。空腹こそダイエットの敵なのに、それを味方につけてしまうなんて頭いいなぁ。

ブロッコさんは「毎日スーパーまで3往復したら、1日で6マイル(約4.8キロ)も歩くことになるんですよ」「これはスゴイことです! 私はこれまでの人生でこんなに歩いたことはなかった!」と話している。

・食事の量と質も見直し

さらに食事の量と質も見直した。減量前は、シリアルやドーナツ、サンドイッチにソーダなど1万1200キロカロリーも摂取していたそう。それを2250キロカロリーまで抑え、内容もジュースを水に、タンパク質豊富な鶏肉や卵白、そして野菜などヘルシーなものに切り替えたという。

・大幅な減量後にジム通いスタート!

このお買い物ダイエットで、スッキリ脂肪が落ちたあと、ブロッコさんはジム通いをスタートさせている! 現在、当初の体重より330ポンド(約150キロ)も減っているのだとか。「274キロ時代は、マシンに体が収まらなかったからね」なんて冗談を飛ばす余裕だ。ダルダルに伸びた皮を手術で除去し、さらに引き締まった体になりつつある。

適度な運動+食生活の見直し。こう言ってしまうとブロッコさんのダイエットは “普通” の方法なのかもしれない。しかし、これを続けることが最難関。だが、習慣づきさえすれば、ダイエットは半分成功したようなものだ。

As I stand here and try to attempt the famous vacuum pose all I can think of is glad I never gave up! I had to Lose 100lbs ✔️ still overweight Lose another 100lbs ✔️still not enough Lose 100 more pounds ✔️ still not enough Lose 30 more ✔️ finally reached my goals Now I have loose skin that will get removed August 15 2016 by @drrepta_plasticsurgery ! Point is never give up never get discourage I almost did when every time I lost 20, 40, 50, or even 100lbs I was still obese! If I would of gave up I wouldn't be making this post, I wouldn't be motivating people, I might not even be alive! No matter how far it may seem no matter how hard it may get fight through it,keep pushing, never turn back you might just be inches away from your fortune!

I'm far from where I want to be, but I'm closer then I've ever been before!!! That's what's it's all about forward progress. Dont ever quit because your not getting the results fast enough or your just not where you want to be! Perfection takes time and no one ever said it would be easy. Getting ready to bulk up the right way with some Lean mass gains I hope to put on 20lbs of muscle to fill out my skin because after losing 320lbs Loose skin is a issue I'm glad it's just not bad for me mainly because I ate clean and weight trained with some cardio my whole journey instead of all cardio and theses fad diets!!! #motivation #motivationmonday #transformation #gainz #gains #weightloss #weightlossjourney #quads #legs #dontskiplegday #focus #PaTential #possible #neverquit #neversettle #movingforward #forwardprogress #gymrat #gymlife #eatclean

I lost 330lbs without getting surgery just staying focus eating clean and working my ass off! It's a process that won't happen overnight but it can very well happen! This is progress over two years! sorry I don't have a picture of my back from when I first started three years ago just know it was almost 150lbs heavier then the top left picture! Here's a tip tho! First we have to start in our minds (meaning) we have to want to change and not just talk about it, really wanting it! We have to be willing to make sacrifices, willing to work hard, willing to do whatever it takes! It's not just wanting to change we have to believe we can change, if anyone is going to believe in you start with yourself, don't let your mind think anything else, don't let your mind set limiting for you! We must do what's necessary and what's possible, stay consistent and never lose focus even if we fail just keep going and suddenly one day we'll look up and were doing the impossible! There are no limitations we only set them in our minds, we can become who and what we want! This isn't just a fitness post it can be applied to life! #motivation #motivationmonday #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlossmotivation #fat #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessfreak #fitnessjourney #focus #gymmotivation #gymrat #gymlife #nodaysoff #limitless #followyourdreams #focus #fitfam #bigback #backday #bodybuilding #bodytransformation
