Fox 13 Tampa Bay – Me and 2 Other People Share About Losing Over 100 Pounds
Tonight on Fox 13 Tampa News – A failed relationship launched Michael Tamez into a comfort food frenzy.
“I was drinking about two 2-liters a day and I was eating fast food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner,” he explains.
He weighed 250 pounds.
It got so bad, Michael fell asleep while driving.
“I had sleep apnea so bad and I got into a car accident and that like literally woke me up,” he says.
Tamez used addition to lose his weight over 10 months. He added exercise and instead of subtracting foods he craved, he “crowded” them out with healthy options.
“You don’t have to restrict anything because eventually the more good you add, the bad can’t survive in that environment,” he explained.
It’s a mind- body equation that’s helped him keep the excess 105 pounds off for 16 years. Michael is now guiding others as a health coach.
“I can relate to people because I know the struggle and what it takes,” Tamez said.
