Alright gang, I promised to be transparent and share my Faster Way to Fat Loss results. So I just wrapped up week six of my first round, and you better believe I am signed up for another!
So, a little background…I have been blessed with pretty good genes when it comes to my weight. I am 5’8″ and up until my 40’s always stayed right around 128#. I would classify myself as “skinny fat”. I’m thin but I carry a layer of fat on my legs and stomach, and my arms, well they are just soft. The past few years, as I have gotten older I have watched that creep up slowly, and it has been a little harder to get back down. In March, my husband and I decided to try the Keto diet. For 3 months, I remained strictly keto and felt good, and brought my weight down from 140 to 134. I knew that Keto wasn’t going to be a sustainable lifestyle for me…i love fruit and I also knew that adding some good carbs into my diet was healthy.
I have a few friends who have been doing the FWTFL for over a year, and they look amazing! So, I finally decided I needed to be accountable for my workouts and my diet so that I would stick to it! So I hopped on this fast moving train!
This program consists of intermittent fasting, carb cycling and workouts paired with the right macros to teach our bodies to become fat burners. You don’t have to have a gym membership, I have done the past 6 weeks in my backyard!
Let’s get to the results shall we?? First off, this is a huge step out of my comfort zone to share these pics, but honestly, I can tell you my results all day long, but the proof is in the pics…so here we go! Now keep in mind, this is my first round, and I didn’t have alot of weight to lose, but I have muscle to gain…so my results might look less than someone with more weight to lose.
Here’s the breakdown:
Weight loss – 4lbs (I know I gained muscle)
Inches lost – 14 1/4″ !!!!! (2 inches in my butt, 2 1/2 inches in my chest, 2 3/4 inches in my waist, and 1 1/2 inches in my hips…were my biggest losses!!!)
So here’s a few other things”
~Do you eat alot? ummm…heck yes!! I have a hard time getting in all my macros each day…I now know I was not eating enough which slowed my metabolism.
~Can you drink wine?? YES! The key is “as long as it fits within your macros” 🙂 so believe me, I make it fit!
~How many days a week do you workout? FIVE and never more than about 45-50 min.
~Do you need to belong to a gym? NOPE…I did the whole 6 weeks in my backyard. There is a beginner, at home and gym workout plan
~How do you calculate macros? We use the MY FITNESS PAL app (free) and Amanda gives you all the instructions on how to set it up!
~Is there a diet to follow? NO, you eat the foods that you like and put them in the My Fitness Pal app
~Can I drink coffee while fasting? YES! Coffee, tea, water, bcaa’s
I am all signed up for the August 13th round, and would love for you to join me! Why?? Well, why not?? I waited a year before I jumped in because I didn’t want to spend the money, and I can tell you honestly, I have NOT ONCE regretted one penny the past 6 weeks, and I know you won’t either!
I still have some work to do, and I know I need another round to really dial in the results I want. I cannot wait to see results at the end of round 2!! Bring on the abs!!!
