How to lose 10 kilos of Fat in 30 Days…
With no exercise.
Losing fat made simple
Yes is it possible to lose 10kg of fat in 30 days. Using diet or exercise, many people have achieve exactly this result. In this post we’ll look at the paleo diet.
Last year in six weeks I went from 59kg to 51kg now I know if you do the math that’s only 8kg! But remember muscle weighs more than fat! That’s right I also measured how much muscle I gained. Using this diet I even got my stomach flat with abs! Considering this is the hardest place for me to lose weight, well this and my thighs (dam my pear shaped weight storage) I was literally jumping for joy when the definition came through on my stomach. These are the three easy steps I used to get there.
First step: Cut the carbs!
Avoid all white carbohydrates. Which means the following foods are ultimately off the menu, the only exception being the 30minute window after a weight training session that lasted at least 20 minutes. Wave good bye to bread, pasta, potatoes, and cereal including any crumbed or battered food. A simple way to remember is that anything white is not alright.
Now I know what you’re thinking, what the heck am I supposed to eat? I eat cereal for breakfast, bread for lunch and pasta for tea! Don’t worry It’s not as scary as it seems. Once you open your diet up to healthier options you’ll realize that there is an abundance of nutrient rich food out there that doesn’t contain any of the items on the no go list.
Simple foods to start with and alternative what you would normally eat, will be in a follow up blog what to eat paleo diet for dummies.
Second step: Start intermittent fasting
Intermittent fasting is basically having an eight hour period of time, where no calories are consumed, and this includes liquid calories. I chose between 8:30am and 4:30pm, some mornings having a bulletproof coffee or tea to fill my stomach and trick my brain. I will also do a follow up blog, on these drinks and how they help your body go into ketosis.
Step three: Avoid sugar at all costs
I like to think of sugar as a sneaky little pest that is hidden absolutely everywhere. Aside from the obvious unhealthy foods the majority of the supermarket is fully of. You may be surprised but even the health foods are full of sugar, or an equivalent that is basically just as bad such as coconut sugar. So be sure to read the package of any so called health food item, and make sure it has no sugar or a safe alternative, such as xylitol, stevia, honey or natural fruit juice. I could write another whole post expanding on this and things you should be aware of, so look out for a follow up post on this also.
Step Four: Always have a cheat day!
This is probably one of the most important things to remember. Don’t be a Nazi about it because you will just fall completely off the wagon and won’t want to get back on. Always splurge and have a cheat day, or even just a cheat meal. Now within moderation. Once a week, usually the weekend as weekends are supposed to be fun, I will go out for diner and carb up, even having my guilty pleasure. A piece of gluten free chocolate cake. I believe it’s the short term breaks and long term changes that last. So as long as you are making a conscious effort to be healthy 90% of the time you can still enjoy the cheeky cheat day/meal and it won’t undo all your hard work. Because all of that consistent good work you have put in for 6 out of seven days will add up to give you a great long term change.
