Hi, I’m Sylvio. This is my journey.
There are various reasons why people can struggle with weight loss, I know from personal experience. My early life was fraught with years of gaining and losing the same 20 pounds, over and over, without consistent and sustainable progress. This ended with the arrival of my first son. I decided that I needed to make a permanent change not only for myself, but for my family.
As a software engineer I focused on fighting my weight issues by approaching it as an engineering problem. I have always understood that to lose weight you just need to burn off more calories than you consume, building a calorie deficit that leads to weight loss over time. In theory it always seemed so simple, but then why is it so difficult to lose weight?
