Im sure everyone is different, and cheating a little will probably screw some, but these are my numbers:
April 1: 76 kgs, 20% body fat
June 1: 72 kgs, 16.7% body fat
I started working out on June 1 on Mondays and Fridays:
1 x 75 reps kettle bell swings
1 x 10 reps pushups 5 sec down/5 sec up
1 x 15 reps slow myotatic crunches (ok 3 x 5 ugh)
1 x 3 reps 95% 1 RM followed immediately by 7 burpies with jumps
1 x 5-6 reps 85% 1 RM followed immediately by 7 burpies jumps
July 27: 74kgs, 13% body fat...body recomposition baby
My only "supplements" were Cod liver oil "Blue Ice", bulletproof coffee, and vitamin D3.
The book is incredible. Maximal gain for minimal effort is his motto, and this delivers. Im an average body type, a little more athletic than most 34 year old, working a desk job, and this was way better than I could possibly imagine. There are so many different ideas to play with in this book, and Tim even says to just skip around and try what interests you, which is definitely the best way to read the book. I keep finding gems like the section on sex. It has already helped there too!
The diet itself is simple, the rules short and to the point. As the author makes a point of saying in the book, I will be experimenting with this diet for two weeks to see if it appeals to me. I've never been a big fan of beans, but I have had salads with lentils which were interesting, so I feel at least somewhat confident that it'll be sustainable in the long term. Either way it'll be a great learning experience.
reccomendations from my boss and his wife and I personally feel it is one of the best books I've ever purchased, and one of the few life changing things I've ever owned at the age of 42. I had been doing circuit training, still do and love it, for almost 3 years now about 2-3 hours a week and this book was what helped md the most to lose the weight. 5 other coworkers lost more than myself due to the book and everyone I reccomend the book to thanks me after seeing equal or better results. The book is great, can't say enough about it.
