Jerry Ferrara was on a gradual weight loss journey starting with last year and he had not revealed how much he lost only until recently. So when he was asked how did it all happen, Ferrara said, "It's been a long road. I did it because I was feeling unhealthy and had no energy. I got bored of my routine. I literally woke up and said I'm going to try this." He also had a nutritionist friend who "wrote up a very conservative diet," for him . Of course he had to follow it respectfully.
He literally had to exchange burgers and fries for include tofu, fresh organic fruits and vegetables. Our man here also began to incorporate exercise into his life. “I’m just eating well. I really changed everything [about] what I ate and was drinking. Nothing drastic, just gradual changes.” He started working out and started going on hikes in Los Angeles' Runyan Canyon.
Ferrara continued, "You may only lose two pounds a months. I try to do something once a day where I'm active." The only advice that has for people embarking on their own personal weight loss journeys is this: "Be patient."
