As I have stated a few times I am a big believer in the paleo diet called "Primal Blueprint". Today is "success story Friday" on the blog that the creator of the diet, Mark Sisson, writes (if you want to see an amazing body google Mark Sisson and see what pictures come up). Today's success story was from a man named Albert. He lost a lot of weight/fat in only a few months. I was able to ask him some specifics about how he lost the weight. He basically suggested that I have been over thinking this whole diet thing. He said that at every meal he just eats some protein, fats, and veggies. Bam, that's it!
I started talking to my husband about this and he said that he agrees with Albert. I over think things. We also talked about my work-out plan. Hubby made a great suggestion-keep going with karate but add something called "The evil Russian's push up program". Every day you do a certain amount of push ups per hour (If this program appeals to you there is a spread sheet for it somewhere on line that makes figuring it out much easier).
So, after one week of dieting I am only one pound down but I learned a lot:
- Enough already with the protein shakes, they only make me sick
- When hungry just focus on protein, fats, and veggies (Yum!)
- Add some push ups to the work outs.
