Considering that the average person should be able to lose 1 to 2 pounds of fat per week; I’m very proud to tell you that I have lost 10 lbs. in 20 days. Is it 10lbs of fat? No. But I have increased my protein intake and increased the frequency of strength training – so there is no muscle loss either.
That leaves water weight. And I’m OK with that! That’s one of the bonuses that comes with a focused initial weight loss effort- losing your puffy face!! Another bonus is that its 10 lbs of weight off my knees and other important joints. Finally, it builds momentum.
This momentum will be key as I depart for Los Angeles tomorrow for 8 days. To help my focus I have a mini goal within my main goal- come back home under 190; my goal weight is 183.
Secret to my success? Eat Steak! and my workouts with “hard on ya Tonya”.
Actually there is more to my diet but the steak is delicious.
As I mentioned previously – I don’t eat anything with grain products or sugar anymore. (except for the occasional very dark chocolate and very red wine )
and my workouts with Tonya are perfect!- hard and I hate ’em but they are perfect as according to the rules of the cave man ‘Grok’ in the book “Primal Blueprint”. (basically interval sprint training and lifting weights for about 30 minutes two times per week).
I additionally eat some fruit every day and typically have a sweet potato with dinner. I have not felt deprived at all.
Add a comment if you too have had success with this type of eating.
