Probably the most subjective topic when it comes to fitness and loosing weight. Everyone is different, every diet is different and every motivation is different in some way.
Huge Disclaimer: What will be mentioned here worked for me, in my current lifestyle and for my future needs. So in a word – subjective.
First a few principles that need to be understood before I go into the diet I put in place to get me to loose 20kgs in 6 months (click that link and see the evidence). Nothing like a few hard fast rules to set the foundation.
Rules and Principles
Diet Alone does not Work
If you are sitting on your butt all day munching celery and popcorn, sure you’ll loose weight slowly. Very slowly. Then you’ll hit a threshold that cannot be broken no matter how perfect your diet is. Something else needs to be done in conjunction with the diet; yes that’s it – exercise. Walk, run, swim, cycle, gym, climb stairs, bootcamp, whatever – so long as you are using up the fat resources.
