McLaughlin has struggled with weight all her life affairs. At age 10 he already has a weight of 63.5 kg. Meanwhile, at the age of 20 years, weight increased two-fold to 127 kg. Now at age 30 years, weight back up to 149 kg.
In 2010, McLaughlin moved from Ireland to New York after getting a job as a software architect for the New York Stock Exchange. Every lunch and dinner, he always went with his co-workers in an effort to socialize. This makes the expense of a healthy lifestyle.
"I live like young people in urban areas. I eat and drink pretty much without thinking of the effect," McLaughlin said, as quoted by CNN, on Friday (26/07/2013).
After his mother managed to reduce the weight by 22 pounds through diet Slimming World, he also inspired to try to lose weight. See evidence that another person can lose weight made him want to make changes.
"It is difficult initially to stop going out for lunch and dinner. I used to go out with co-workers several times a week and drink half a dozen cocktails, after eating about three servings," says McLaughlin.
Usually he eats meat dishes such as steak the size of a large and desserts such as chocolate cake or chocolate ganache plus cheese. Then be covered with wine. Menu of nearly 5,000 calories was he used to consume each day.
McLaughlin then followed the Slimming World plan and prepare their own meals at home. Menu also consists of fruit, chicken, broccoli, and cauliflower. Even if he would eat outside the home, he would prefer carefully. He also tried to pass the time for cocktails.
Lover McLaughlin, Allison Dressler, said she initially found it difficult to cook for the first time in a relationship with McLaughlin. Because their diet is arguably very different and contradictory.
"But now we are pretty much the same menu. I am very happy, the easier it is to prepare the daily diet," said Dressler.
Initially both Dressler and McLaughlin have a gym membership, but not too actively involved exercise. McLaughlin did not want to drastically exercise for fear would not be able to stay motivated.
"It's hard to go to the gym after work. Initially I just want to focus on the control of eating alone. But I realized it would take a long time. Then I try every day to the gym," said McLaughlin.
The strategy worked. Now as a result of his hard work, McLaughlin weight has dropped as much as 63.5 kg. This decline could make the move more than ever before. He also no longer often feel weak and lethargic. Energy have also increased dramatically and he now admitted its activities do not just lay down to watch TV till late.
