It was good for a while and I made some progress but it wasn’t sustainable for me with everything else that was going on in my life.
I spent more time researching the best way to lose weight than I invested in actually doing something about it.
Even if you can get past the ridicule or at least the fear of it, you’re going to encounter other problems like injury and lack of motivation.
By all means aim to get fit and put on a little muscle, but don’t feel compelled to try to make two major changes to your lifestyle at the same time.
Build up fitness and exercise regimes slowly and deliberately to get the most enjoyment and benefit. I’m not saying don’t exercise, I’m just saying you might not need to exercise as intensely as you think you do.
Which is good news because if you want to lose more than 30 lbs, you don’t have to embarrass yourself by getting dressed head to foot in lycra and pounding the pavement to the amusement of the jackasses who yell out insults as you go by.
But I’m also talking about the good stuff (IN MODERATION!!
Ordinary, regular food served up in decent portions that fills your belly and keeps you feeling satisfied for hours afterwards.
I had a full time career and when I wasn’t working I was looking after the children while my wife worked.
I was exhausted, I hated the 6 small meals diet because I never felt full – I got injured running – and I quit, regaining the weight soon after.
Be advised: The effectiveness of diets vary from person to person and I cannot guarantee that taking this approach will work for you.. When it comes to this site Hubbys Home, it turns out I’m possibly the world’s worst blogger and I don’t tend to respond to the comments here. The idea of adopting a one meal a day diet first came to me when I read an article about an American General, Stanley Mc Chrystal.
I do feel bad about that, because when people take the time to reach out, it’s a bit of a slap in the face to get ignored. The article was about his capability as a leader, not about dieting or weight loss, but as an aside it was mentioned that he ate only one meal a day.
