Lose Weight in 4 Easy Steps with “Saturday Night Live’s” Beck Bennett (Things We Love!)


Lose Weight 4 Steps

“New year, new me,” is a chorus echoed throughout in January. With that being said, it is a perfect time to revisit the Ben Berman directed short film How to Lose Weight in 4 Easy Steps!, written by Aaron Bleyaert.

The short is funny, depressing, inspirational, and human. SNL’s Beck Bennett stars as a heartbroken man who is using his loss and grief as a catalyst for fitness. Lifting weight after weight, running mile after mile, and forming puddle of sweat after puddle of sweat a transformation both physically and mentally takes place. The short directs focus towards the importance of goals and actually working to achieve them and the hard fact that doing this is not easy and you will not always like it but in the end time proves that it was worth putting all that you had into it.

The film has been out for over a year now, premiering at Sundance in 2016, but it’s message of perseverance through times that seem hopeless rings true especially in this new year. Starring alongside Bennett are Man Seeking Woman‘s Britt Lower and Jessy Hodges.
