Fat does not make you fat. Processed carbs do. Eating fat won't make you ill, it will make you full. It will make your body switch to fat burning mode. But only if you cut out sugar and carbs. Everything you were told about fat is wrong. Example daily menu for me
Scrambled eggs with butter, smoked salmon.
Chicken, avocado, bacon and spinach salad with olive oil and lime and thyme dressing
Steak and broccoli and garlic mushrooms in cream sauce
Greek yogurt with 5 sliced strawberries.
Drink: water, fizzy water, black coffee, green tea, gin and slimline at weekend.
Shred every other day and swim or if no time, 10 min jumping jacks, press ups, ab crunches and dumb bells.
I've lost half a stone in just under 3 weeks and dropped from 14 to size 12 doing 5:2 and high fat medium protein low carb plus The Shred and Swimming. My body shape has already changed a lot. See low carb bootcamp rules and read up on why you need fat first otherwise it makes you hungry and tired.
Also only drink at weekends; 2 glasses dry wine a night, nothing in week.
Think a stone might be v tricky as weightloss slows after first week - 2 lb a week is about the max after first week waterloss and de-bloating.
You also need to drink A LOT of water - about 3l a day.
Starting yesterday I am only going to eat small amounts of fruit and protein in the day, then a low card but proper dinner in the evening. Realistically I will often have a large glass of wine with my evening meal. No bread, pasta, rice or potatoes. Lots of low fat protein, fruit and veg.
It has to be done cos I cant afford to buy a new holiday wardrobe.
Į doubt doing the 5/2 yoų would, you would need to do a meal replacement diet to loė quickly.Alternatively why dont you opt for a swimming cossie. M and S do great body shaping costumes that support/ helo hide lumpy bits.
