I make no attempt to mask the fact that I am a fairly sizeable woman and in all honesty I thought I’d never be able to shift the weight but I’ve been following a different type of diet plan recently and I thought I’d share it with everyone.
You see, instead of losing weight, this regime actually puts muscle gain at the heart of its core principles and for once this seems to be doing the trick. Muscle does, as we all know, weigh more than fat but it certainly doesn’t take up as much space!
I’ve been following this particular muscle building diet plan for around 3 months now and despite only losing 20 pounds in weight, I’ve lost 6 inches from my waist and there has been huge shrinkage in my bingo wings and my thighs.
I can now see proper definition and toning in some parts of my body because not only have I been eating along the lines of this regime, I’ve been going to the gym and hitting the weights. Before I’d only ever attempt cardio because I thought this was the key to burning calories and losing weight but when bulking up your muscles, the amount of calories you then burn during the rest of your day goes up.
So what exactly do I eat now? Well I’m not limited to certain foods but I do have to make a fair amount of it myself now because I follow recipes that are relatively low in fat (although not completely devoid of it because our bodies need fat to function). The foods are high in natural protein though and they are packed full of the essential minerals and vitamins that I was missing before.
I’ve learned so much about how the body requires small amounts of many different things in order to work efficiently and I firmly believe that it is this holistic approach and not the calorie counting that has led to my weight loss and the massive improvement in my overall appearance.
I’m not going to stand here and tell you that I have found a miracle cure for being fat but this type of diet program has certainly opened my eyes to a different way of doing things. I used to basically starve myself during diets and always felt hungry but this hasn’t been the case this time and I’m eating a good amount of calories still; I’m just eating different types of calories and my body is burning more of them as it goes about its business.
So I’m basically telling you to give the anabolic diet plan a try and see if it works for you. It might and it might not but it’s certainly a more enjoyable type of diet – just be prepared to build up those muscles down the gym instead of just doing cardio because I think that is key to making it a success.
