This is no joke and neither is this an affiliate commercial. I am not selling anything related to diets and foods and health stuff. I simply want to share with you my own personal actual story of how I am losing between 2 and 3 pounds a week by eating the usual.
For seven years I have been trying every possible diet and fitness regime, and as a result I only gained fat. Yes, sometimes I lost a few pounds, and then I gained even more.
I tried low carb high protein, low protein high carb, only carb, only protein, just fruit and salad, nuts and soy, pills, potions, herbs, drugs, with and without physical exercises, well, you name it, I took it. All of it. And in the end: just stay fat.
Seven weeks ago I decided to try one more time lose fat by a method I have not really tried before: Simply eat less. This time, a lot less.
Now the big question, what exactly did (and still do) I eat? Yep, you may laugh: Macaroni with ham, cheese, tomato- & vegetable sauce, egg omelet, and some spices, all prepared with the cheapest sunflower oil. No kidding. The same stuff that made me fat! I just love that taste.
On physical low active days, i.e. without any sports, I ate exactly 25 percent compared to the usual grand total per day, and divided that amount over 4 meals.
On physical high active days, i.e. with sports (I practice martial arts a couple of evenings a week), I ate exactly 33 percent compared to the usual grand total per day, and divided that amount over 4 meals.
I took the cheapest ingredients, based on the assumption that the more expensive products contain unhealthier additives. So what I did is to cook macaroni and tomato sauce for one week. Each time I wanted to eat, I fry an egg or omelet in a flat pan with generous sunflower oil, take the mac & tom out of the fridge (no deep freeze), and mix it with the fried egg. It may look like shit or vomit, but yummy it tastes real good.
So I still eat that for breakfast, luch, afternoon, dinner, just that and nothing – really nothing – else. Well, water for drinks and no other beverage other than an occasional coffee. I do not eat supplements or fruit.
I am 100 percent certain that you can do so with any kind of food that you like to eat. It is very important that you have to like the taste a lot. Never eat anything that you do not truly enjoy!
So if your eating habit is burgers and fries, just keep eating that, but only between 1/4 and 1/3 of the total daily quantity depending on your physical activity. If your eating habit is Indian food, just keep eating that, but only between 1/4 and 1/3 of the total daily quantity depending on your physical activity. And so forth.
The amount is 1/4 of the usual total on lazy days, and 1/3 of the usual total on sporty days. Nothing more, nothing less.
That is all there is. Simple as that. Side note: yes that annoying feeling of hunger stays all day. Other side note: after a few weeks, the urine smells to ammoniac. That is a good sign, as the body is in a state of ketosis, i.e. burning off fat in order to generate energy. From that moment onwards, the pounds of fat fly away even faster, even during sleep.
The past 7 weeks I lost exactly 14 pounds. And at the time of this writing, I am still losing fat and have not changed the quantity scheme.
Now I know – after seven years of trial and error – that losing fat is not a matter of food composition, but simply a matter of quantity.
All in all, eat a lot less of the same, and stay hungry.
Happy slimming to you!
