The image above shows my weight loss as I have documented it. Any gaps are the result of not being able to record my weight due to being away from my scale.
You may have noticed from the graph that I seem to have stopped making progress. This is true. I am currently within my BMI range. I could lose a few more pounds and tight up my body a bit more if I did ANY exercise at all. I am slowly talking myself into picking up the Kettlebell work out. If I do, I might just have to post some before and after photos.
I seem to be getting asked more and more how my diet is going. Ever since I announced that I would be doing the “Slow Carb Diet” described in the Timothy Ferriss Book, ‘The 4 Hour Body‘ friends want to know if I am still on the diet and what kind of progress I have made.
Well yes, I am still on the diet. I have been on it since January 10th of this year and I have lost over 20 pounds as a result. My cloths fit better and I feel better. A little less than a month go I had to take my dress shirts to a tailor and have them sized because they where all to big for me and didn’t fit anymore.
I have been on this diet for 73 days in total and there are a couple of reasons why I think it is working for me. One reason is I can see results everyday by tracking my weight daily and my physical measurements weekly. Using these methods I can see improvements and nothing keeps one motivated to do something then seeing constant improvements. Another thing that keeps me motivated is that once a week I am allowed to cheat. I can eat whatever I want and as much of it as I want. For me this day is normally Saturday and boy do I pig out. It’s knowing that I never have to wait more than 7 days to eat junk food that also keeps me going.
‘The 4 Hour Body’ offers other diets options for people. Not just the ‘Slow Carb Diet’. It’s just the diet I chose and it’s been working. Below you can see a graph of my weight loss compiled from my daily weight documentation I have been keeping.
My battle with weight continues on. I have had no real issues sticking to this diet. I do get cravings but nothing I can’t control. Knowing that my cheat day is never more than a week away is a big help.
As some of you may know I started participating in the slow carb diet described in The 4-Hour Body book by Timothy Ferriss. Some time a week or so ago I saw a recent video of Timothy Ferriss giving a talk at Google that I want to share with you.
