Not only did I lose fat, but I strengthened my joints and prepared my muscles for intense workouts that would follow.
I did not do anything extreme or take anything you would be opposed to putting in your body.
The problem we all have with our abdomen is the hard fat that accumulates. This fat cannot simply be burned off with exercise.
I did 2 very basic things to make serious changes and actually want to continue it beyond the 1 month goal. Not only was it a 1 month goal, it was chosen for the shortest month, February, ON PURPOSE!!!!
This works very well for both men AND women, but it is tougher on women for 1 reason, stored medications.
This is not something you have to continue for your entire life as it does cut out some sources of nutrition that your body needs. It is meant to be a good reset for your body. You burn out the stored fat that your body has built up and learn new habits to limit that fat in the future.
Here’s the first part of the plan: EXERCISE
A very simple plan, but very tough in the beginning, and it is up to you to challenge yourself on the number of repitions you do. It’s your body so its your motivation and heart that are at work here.
EVERY SINGLE DAY YOU MUST COMPLETE AT LEAST
- 100 pushups
- 100 squats
And you must walk/run every 3rd day. Add more bodyweight exercises to boost fat loss/muscle strength
- Situps(no anchor)
You can create your own number of repitions per day, as long as they don’t interfere with the pushup and squat numbers. You can do the repetitions however you want throughout the day and challenge yourself to get them done a certain way as well. Try to get well more than 100, at least for the pushups. Here’s an example
- Morning-25 pushups
- Workout-5×15 pushups
- Bedtime-25 pushups
Then add 5 pushups to the reps per set each week. Challenge yourself. See if you can complete 4000 pushups instead of 3000, or whatever number you want. Don’t injure yourself and pay attention to your thresholds. Pushing your muscles past the point that you want to quit gives them the best chance to change.
Now is the most important part: NURTITION
This is a diet but it can turn into something that is habitual.
I don’t like to use the word diet because it implies that the change in eating is only temporary and carries a negative connotation. But, in this case, it is what it is.
It may seem very difficult, and for some people may be more difficult than others. You want to cut out Carbs, Fats and Sugars. I know, it seems much more difficult than it is. Limited good fats are good and carbs from vegetables are also good. My friend actually does this for 20weeks to shed all fat before a vacationc then he comes back and gains 50pounds to beef up before doing this again and losing it. What he does is absolutely destructive, even though it works, and I do not recommend it, but I want to tell you it really does cut all fat from the bone and the 20weeks is to get to the hard to reach and heavily built up areas of the body, usually the hips and thighs.
Let me give you examples of what to eat
- Lean turkey
- Any vegetables
- A handful of nuts
- An avocado
Here are things you want to stay away from
- Red meat
- Anything that’s not water
Get the picture?
The good thing is that you can eat as mich of the good stuff as you want, all day long.
I would eat, literally, 10meals a day and only reach about 1500 calories, byt I was eating all day and lost 10lbs of FAT in the first 7 days. It tailed off a little after but my muscle stayed in tact and I felt FANTASTIC, I swear. I continued it well into the following month. I have kids so its not easy and I had to make sacrifices at times, but all-in-all I was on point and it worked extraordinarily.
You can also add circuit workouts and anabloic workouts to your days to really give it a boost. Doing too much can have an opposing effect on your body as it goes into survival mode.
The point if this is to have the body eat away at the hard fat it has stored.
Here is why it gets problematic for women
Medications women take, generally more than men, are stored in these areas of hard fat. Because you are now attacking these areas, the chemicals are rereleased into your system, creating a minor imbalance, depending on the medications. My friend’s wife could not get through short periods before she had to stop and slowly detox before making it through a round of this method. AND IT WORKED TREMENDOUSLY when she got through it.
Remember, fat burns off fastest at its thinest stores, usually the neck/ankles and towards the midsection from those points.
AGAIN, this is only meant to reset your body and help you move to the next step of your path to health and whatever conditioning goal you have. You will need support with this so share your feelings and allow the people around the ability to be frustrated. You need their help, so help them cope with you.
Lastly, DRINK A TON OF WATER
