Coronado shares advice for others hoping to lose weight.

1. Eliminate just one thing at a time

If Coronado had eliminated all unhealthy foods from his diet at once, it would have been challenging to stick with it. By cutting out one thing at a time, he could start a healthy habit and become consistent with it before removing another food.

“Just change one thing,” he said. “When people start losing weight, they delete everything. Just start slowly. It will make a difference.”

2. Do it for you

While Coronado likes that he helped Denise, he knew that he would not have lost the weight if he didn’t want to do it for himself.

3. Be consistent

While he was losing weight, Coronado often weighed himself to see his progress. He keeps a tight workout schedule that he repeats day after day. This helps him stay on track and keep the weight off.

“I go to the gym, do 45 minutes of weight lifting and I do 30 minutes of cardio four days a week and come home and go to sleep and then wake up and do it all over,” he said.
