RE: gaining weight back,
If you transition of over the course of two weeks with HSM’s then you’ll be fine. Do the transition right and keep training hard. I’ve used this with a bunch of my clients and myself and everyone one who thinks of the diet as a beginning to a larger plan does well. everyone who sees it as a 28 day solution fails terribly. Decide now.
Also, Re: Eat Clean Diet book,
If you got this way you will likely not be able to maintain a high metabolism and good hormones [very importantin females]. Also the more complex a diet is the most likely you are to not benefit from it. If it takes a book as big as the eat clean book then it will likely not be easy for you to maintain. The best diet is a simple one. For example the diet most of my overweight clients do well on [male and female] is “The Two Rule Diet.” Ill write the details below.
1] Things that have parents
2] Green Plants
If you obey those two rules after the Vdiet you will have eternal success at staying at a good body composition.
Thank you so much, Chris!! I wasn’t planning the “eat clean book” (which I’ve never read by the way) but rather the concept of eating clean. Lots of protein, 5-6 small meals per day. To give you a bit of history, I’ve been working out with a PT since January. I’m 133 lbs today and am at 18% body fat. The 24 lbs of fat I’m carrying around sits all in my ass and thighs. My trainer suggested this diet to blast the fat cuz nothing we were doing was working. No amount of squats or lunges has made much of a difference. As for the hormones, the PT and his boss are now thinking it could be an estrogen problem. Any thoughts on this?
BTW – Your rules have been my way of life (for the most part) since Sept, 2009…until now of course.
