3 day diet Round 3 Results (Shout Out to BIG MIKE): 9 more lbs!
So I lost one less pound this week. A loss of 9 still puts me at a 29 lbs deficit from the beginning 3 weeks ago. And you know what folks- I feel Damn good! And LOOK it too!
Now the results are tricky I wont lie. When you get down to the nitty gritty I’ve only kept off about 17-18 lbs. After every diet I have one heavy binge day. Smart? I don’t really care. I believe in rewarding myself. Plus my body needs some quick love to maintain all the effort I’ve put in to build and shape mass. And the results of this crash/fad diet have been worth it.
My new strategy is something like this: Carve up and diet for 3 days, then eat well and do mass building exercises for the next four days as well as increased rest. During the diet I made sure I did cardio and tried not to cheat at all. Now this week I failed at both but my cheats were small and the lack of exercise daily was more due to having to pursue business ventures- I will not let Dieting supersede my desire for self-sufficiency, freedom, riches, and a nasty little Porsche 911 (see http://changeinadvance.com for more on that). The good news was that I covered a great event and did not take advantage of any of the great food or open bar. I stuck to business and let my mind lead me to greater times.
What I’ve come to learn on this diet is that I’ve lost the weight not due to dieting- but due to Discipline. Anyone can diet and half the world seems to. However it is the discipline to not just diet, but follow through- and then repeat the process. Is it hard? Quite. Will I do it again? Of course. I plan on going for round 4 on Monday and dropping 10+ lbs. Why? Why Not? My waist and face look smaller and my muscle mass looks bigger as the ratios are changing. Also my arms and chest look vastly more defined, aka it’s a WIN WIN.
