following: Bill Phillip's Body For Life
performance: losing 4.7 lb a week
Constant yo-yo dieter, but sometimes active. Am a BIG foodie, hence the extra poundage. Made excuses ALL THE TIME about why I couldn't eat well and why I didn't have time to exercise. And one day, I discovered that I had let myself go completely. Am here to change all that now. What's important isn't what WAS yesterday, but what I AM doing right now and how that affects what I WILL become tomorrow.
My profile states that I'm following Bill Phillips' Body for Life, but I really am following a hybrid of various sources. I just wanted to promote his method because that man has taught me how to exercise.
My method is a combination of focused exercise and a body-builder's diet. I do HIIT cardio 3x a week and weight training 3x a week. I pretty much abuse myself when I'm at the gym, but afterwards there is such a satisfying feeling. My diet is a balance of high protein, moderate fat, and low carbs. I do not eat sugar. My diet is also free of anything with chemicals: packaged foods, soda, artificial sweeteners, anything in the middle part of the grocery store. I also abstain from starchy carbs because over the years I've discovered that I am extra-sensitive to high-glycemic foods. I eat whole foods, drink lots of white and green tea. I'm not afraid to eat fat, but I make an extra effort to increase consumption of Omega-3 fat and decrease Omega-6 fat.
