Last year I lost around 8 kg, but gained some weight back during the winter.
This year I lost around 6-7 kg so far, and I feel so much better about myself already… However I’m still over 60 kg, and want to go under it. Plus, I need to exercise since you can’t lose all just by diet.
Also, I’ve really fixed my food input (so to call it) since I definitely eat much less food in every meal now.
I have only 1 problem – I’m addicted to sweets and I just can’t help it!! (at the moment, this is my biggest problem food-vise)
So, I’m one of those people that will spend their life on diets, but I’ve come to peace with it.
All in all – progress is going very well, but some fixing is still needed (call it willpower to stop myself from eating sweets). :)
I wanted to share a great diet I’m using and I know many people have been using with success, and maybe it’ll help someone.
It’s based on eating different types of food every day in the cycle of 4 by 4 by 4 etc days. For 3 months (allegedly, but you can use it as long as you feel like it).
But the main thing about it is that it is supposed to regulate your metabolism so you don’t get chubby again as soon as you finish the diet. (this is also proven by some people in my close environment) Also, it’s not dull at all and you don’t get bored with eating the SAME food again and again since you actually have much space to think of interesting recipes and combine them in the diet.
First of all – every day the breakfast is a couple of fruits (for example 2 apples/ oranges/ bananas or 3-4 smaller fruits, or a handful of berries, you get the point).
Day 1: proteinsLunch
- 3 eggs/ 3 steaks/ cheese/ soy or anything concerning proteins (for example as a vegetarian I mostly eat a plate of mushrooms, or 3 soy burgers, with some cheese added)
- 1 piece of bread
- fresh salad (basically unlimited amount)
- soup without noodles (I drink 1 cup)
Dinner: same as lunch but without soup (it doesn’t have to be EXACTLY the same, but as long as it’s proteins and normal amount of food, and only 1 piece of bread)
Day 2: starchLunch
- 1 full deep plate of beans, peas, rice or potatoes
- 1 piece of bread
- fresh salad
Dinner: the same as lunch, but just half of the amount of it.
Day 3: carbohydrates
1 plate of pasta with spices and ketchup
OR 1 pizza with spices and ketchup
OR 2 integral rolls/buns
(for example – I eat pasta/ pizza with spices, tomatoes / ketchup, onions and corn)
2 small pieces of cake
OR 3-4 cakes
OR ice cream in the same amount.
And 1 line (don’t know how to say it) of cooking chocolate.
Day 4: fruits
Just fruits all day!
Here I cheat and drink sugar-free juices, too.
And then all over from day 1 again. :)
The third day of my diet has started and I think I lost about 1 kg, which is good, since I’ve done only 2 full days.
My ideal weight, or my aimed weight, is 55kg (121 pounds), but right now I’m at 67 kg (147 pounds). I hope i’ll be able to get to less than 65kg with this diet and after that, I’ll do something else, probably one other diet (the one which has impact on regulating the metabolism) plus some physical activity.
My main problem is the lack of willpower, because of which I’m prone to giving up on things…
But I’m really trying to stick with this, since it means a lot to me. I want to be good-looking as I used to be and at the moment I am very determined to achieving that!
is the DAY!
I’m starting some brutal diet, based on toast and eggs. I gotta lose a bit of weight until Friday, since I got High school reunion then. I should lose like 3kg for those 5 days, enough to fit into my old pants… :D
Yay, it’ll be hard but fulfilling if it works!
Yesterday I ate loads of strawberry cakes. I feel so guilty yet so good! Oh, the sinful food…! :D
This is totally me. Every new year, every new month, every new week and most of the new days I decide to go on a diet and start exercising TOMORROW.
But food tastes so good!
