Is there a way to lose that extra bit of weight? Weight Loss explored

So 2019 has officially begun, like it or not, and if you’re like me and are feeling maybe you over indulged at the festive period and gained a few pounds? or maybe “Dry January” has helped in more ways than you thought? Possibly even your New Years resolution was to get fit for the year? But you need a “Plan” that will work and you won’t get bored of. This thread explores different Plans that I have tried, tested, read about etc. 

Over the past year or so, I must have lost about 10Kg (1 and a half stone) experimenting on diets for what suits my personal preferences – the first thing to mention, weight loss can be a short term or long term fix. Secondly, this thread is only an opinion and not 100% fact based. Every diet has different effects on every person, so what may work for some may not for others.

I am going to go through a few of these diet plans I’ve tried over the past year in this thread with my opinion for each. My goal is to inform, educate and make a difference for at least one person. I like to categorize Plans into types, the “Conventional”, the “Pioneering”, and the “Experimental”. At the end of this thread, there is a Gift as well! Can’t wait for the free Gift? Click Here

1. Conventional plans are those such as Weight Watchers or Slimming World; I tried Slimming World for about 2 months. The results were quite good, and the recipes they give are quite satisfying given the portion size they allow are small. The diet is also easily adaptable to other recipes if you like to bend the rules slightly, however there are restrictions on certain food items and may not suit every persons lifestyle – probably the reason for myself to stop following this particular plan. I did lose a significant amount of weight, but for me the inflexible point system did not suit me. This type of diet relies on dedication to the system and following very simple rules. A sample recipe can be found below:

2. You may be thinking why I called the second type “Pioneering”, this is because they are fairly new in the scope of people but probably have been used for generations in small communities. One such diet is Carb-Cycling or the Keto Diet, this is where you substitute Carbohydrates for Fat in your diet. The starving of your body of Carbohydrates kicks in metabolism of fat burning and by increasing fat in the diet ensures your body hormone levels carry this process (Ketosis). It requires significant planning in order to follow correctly and also batch cooking (which can actually be a god-send if you have a busy life). The rotation works on a 5-day cycle, to give an example below:

Monday – 150g Carb
Tuesday – 100g Carb
Wednesday – 50g Carb
Thursday – 125g Carb
Friday – 200g Carb
Saturday – 125g Carb
Sunday – 100g Carb

On the following Monday your Carb intake would be 150g. Another example is shown in the picture. The main rules are to increase fibrous fruit or vegetables, the main Carbs you are cycling are Breads, Rice, Pastas, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes etc. Other rules include sticking with it for 3 weeks and then doing a “Carb Re-fuel” which allows your body to reboot and carry on the weight loss or you’ll reach the Plateau and give up. The final thing to mention before is that you need to work out the amounts of Carbs per gram per day you are going to use, in simple terms your highest day should be 1 – 1.5g Carb per Pound (Ib) of weight and generally speaking the highest intake should 200g Carbs. This is a great diet, if you want to shred a few pounds relatively quickly – fat reserves when broken down create water which is where most of the residual weight actually is. If you include a few H.I.I.T (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts in this diet, this increases weight loss. I have to say, my lifestyle suits this diet very well – and I have implemented this into my diet even if I don’t strictly stick to this. More information is available in the below video (which also provides a free meal plan).

Sample H.I.I.T workouts can be found below:

3. Finally, this is the interesting part, the “Experimental” Plans. These include diets that aren’t typically conventional and incur interest for that reason. I’ve read a lot on these sorts of diets and find them intriguing, one in particular is called The Red Tea Detox. The plan is consumed as a tea and detoxes your body while also cleanses your system; after 3 years of research behind this product and 500 medical studies have shown it will safely and quickly help lose weight (almost anyone can lose 14Ibs).

The plan is split into 3 parts: the diet, the exercises, and then the mindset, motivation and willpower of following the diet plan. The main ingredient of the Red Tea is Rooibos, a red bush from South Africa which combined with a blend of other ingredients help weight loss and increase health. The way in which it works is that the active ingredient Rooibos has flavinoids and polyphenols which inhibit the formation of new fat calls by 22%.  Want more information on the plan?

The product itself is fully caffeine free which poses another great benefit in health. Want another benefit? There isn’t a particular meal plan or anything to follow, the plan gives you advise and guidance on how you should diet – so it’s fairly flexible.
