Following Tim’s Four Hour Body is having wonderful effects. I don’t miss carbs so much, because I can eat things on cheat day that I don’t eat on other days. I had pizza and a candy bar two days ago, but with enough exercise, and moderation at other meals to offset that cheating, I’m still losing. On 5/1 I weighed 200.4, a slight uptick from the previous week’s 198, because I wasn’t drinking enough water. And I think consuming too much fat overall, and not walking enough.
So I changed breakfast-16 oz ice water on waking, followed by 16 oz more water with two scoops Muscle Milk for 30 G protein.
On 5/6, after a fairly bad two-day cheat, I weighed 197. That includes burgers, fries and biscuits, my friends.
On 5/7, I celebrated with one-quarter of a 16″ hand-tossed deluxe meat pizza, and a Hershey bar, in addition to a non-cheat meal the same day. I also ate a cup of lima beans with the pizza, to feel more full. I did 25 minutes on the elliptical trainer, at a fairly moderate pace, pausing when I need to catch my breath.
On 5/8, back on track with more ice water, muscle milk, and a reasonable breakfast of peas, green beans and bacon-yes I know that sounds weird but it was good. Ten I weighed at work….
194.26. I’ve lost 4″ off my waist, and I can see many places that are thinner.
It’s working, it’s fun and easy, and I’m so happy!!
