I’ve done enough weight loss experiments in the past to know what works for me. And if there’s one thing I can do well: It’s not eating allllll day!
This is essentially called Intermittent Fasting.
I count my calories using a pen and Sticky Note. This works well to control calories in the day time, but the BEST way to reduce calories in the morning and afternoon is just not eat them at all.
Typically I’ll eat from 2pm to 10pm or 6pm to 10pm. In that window it’s almost hard to eat past my ~1,900 calorie range per day. So I still get to pig out on a big dinner.
Started at 185 lbs, and am touching the 169 lbs range in less than a month with this method.
After this month the “easy fat” will be gone, and the slightly more strict regimine of working out will begin (but not too much more).
I’ll simply continue the same workout I do, then add some basic cardio to each workout (I use the free Nike Training App and just follow along for these workouts).
