I started a ‘crash’ diet Monday last week, and i’ve lost 4-5kg since then (a bit of that will be water, but a bit of that has also been fat). I’ve got rid of the beer gut (10kg since last photo post) and got some shape in my abs again (phew). But there still a bit on the sides that I wouldn’t mind getting rid of:
The crash diet is for people wanting to shed some quick weight/fat. It’s not something that is ment to be permanent. I’m only going to be doing it for two weeks, then ill move onto a more flexible diet (even though I haven’t been truley strict to the rules lol). Basically the diet is based on stripping carbs, fat, and only eating protein. You must take fish/flaxseed oil tablets to get your essential fatty acids, and a multivitamin also helps. Anyway its all in this book that I got my hands on: The Rapid Weightloss Handbook. And yes, I read the entire thing (it was only 100 pages and actually pretty darn easy to read).
Effects: Aside from losing weight, I’ve noticed that I’m no where near as hungry as I used to be. I can eat a lot less and still feel full. I have a lot more energy. And best of all I smashed my old 3km running record by 20 sec. I never knew how much of a difference 5kg makes to running. It feels like your just floating along, it’s insane!
I hope someone might find this useful.
Bring on the 8pack.
