As summer approaches, thousands will soon be thinking (if they haven’t already) about getting into shape.
People attempt to lose weight for all sorts of reasons, but for most it’s driven by more vain desires like looking better and being more attractive. It’s normal I suppose.
Although my motivation has been more driven by observing my grandfather having the ability in his eighties to enjoy his great grand-daughter, I’d be a liar to deny the fact that getting rid of body fat makes everyone look better, including myself.
There’s nothing impressive about being carrying excess weight. It’s not vanity, just fact.
I don’t say this to offend. I’ve neglected exercise, and lived in a manner which, had I been older with a lower metabolic rate, I’d probably have been in much worse physical condition.
And here’s my point…
With a few simple tweaks of my diet, and no more than 20 minutes of exercise 6 days/week, I’ve transformed my body in seven weeks.
Seven weeks to undo years of neglect.
I want you to think about that. Why? Having laboured to discover the most effective short and simple workout regimen, and urged Melanie to construct a nutritional plan that would accelerate fat loss, keep away hunger, and give me sufficient energy for daily tasks, we’re now in the middle of putting it together in a format we can give to you.
We’re trying to get it ready in time so that you get it by Easter.
Keep that in mind.
Week 7 Results
Anyway, this morning I got Melanie to do measurements for body composition once again. Before I started the plan, she did a Jackson/Pollock 7-point calliper calculation for body fat, and measured the circumference of my arms, legs, etc. We did this all again on week three, week five, and again this morning.
Here are the results:
Weight: 85.7 kg
Total Body Fat: 17.5%
Mid-bicep: R32.1 – L32.4
Mid-thigh: R56.2 – L56.0
