31 Days Of Fitness: From Being A Chronic Alcoholic To Reclaiming His Life Back, Gulit's Story Is Inspiring

If I look back into time, I remember being a chronic alcoholic. Right from diabetes to thyroid and to high blood pressure, I had everything. Even low testosterone was a huge problem. The doctor told me if I don't change my lifestyle I will never be able to start a family. Sure, addiction to food is a real thing but let me tell you that addiction to alcohol will ruin your life. This is exactly what happened with me. This is how I came out of alcoholism and reclaimed my life back.

How I Ate

Before anything, let me make it very clear that diet is the first step. I counted my calories, keeping the protein high (150 -250 grams), low fat (50 Grams) and least carbs diet. I reefed myself to keep away from binge eating.  What I realized are the rules that apply to staying sober and quitting alcoholism also fit perfectly with weight loss and clean diet.

Cutting Alcohol Was A BIG Task

Now I was pretty much sorted with my diet. Next step was something that would completely change my life—quitting alcohol. This was harrowing for me to start with. I used to drink regularly. Now I had to stop. But here again, I didn't take any leaps. I took one step at a time. It was tough but I didn't give up.   

So What Did I Learn?

One Day At Time

First Apply this motto - When you wake up in morning say this- I WILL FOLLOW MY DIET TODAY NO MATTER WHAT. Don't think about tomorrow or day after, do justice to your diet today. Take it one day at a time.

These are certain things I fixed about myself.

1. Serenity Of The Mind 

Either you are quitting alcohol or trying to be disciplined with dieting in your life. The serenity of the mind is most important. If your mind is not at peace then you cannot concentrate on anything which includes having right meals. So if you want to lose weight or improve your health, then the most important thing is the serenity of your mind.

2. Hardcore Honesty 

First step is about understanding your problem areas.  It can be alcohol or eating junk food. To identify this, you have to be completely honest about it. Don't lie to yourself. If you are fat, you are fat.  My alcoholism was killing me but I would tell myself that I will quit it soon. This hardly ever happened though till the time I was warned.

3. Become Selfish

If you are not selfish, then you stop caring about what is best for you. If you are selfish you consider your health, your life and your progress before anything else. If you are selfish about your body then you do what is best for it. Most importantly, be selfish about your serenity.

How Far I Have Come

After years of hard work, now I stand completely sober. I literally came out of the claws of death to becoming one of the hardest workers in the gym and in the kitchen too. To do this, I didn't look at any shortcuts. I believed in myself, ate a structured diet and worked an intelligent training program that was the best for me.

If you are also going through addiction, trust me, the solution is right inside you. Find it before it's too late.
