How I Lost 51 Pounds In 4
Months Using The Simplest Diet Plan In The World
Like many people
I've been on dozens of diet plans over the years ranging from
Atkins to South Beach to Weightwatchers to Jenny Craig and lots
more besides. In fact, I've eaten enough cabbage soup to satisfy
a small country! I'm 5 feet 10 and I used to weigh 230 pounds
and needed to lose a good 50 pounds to get myself in some short
of shape. And then it hit me. It's seems so logical now and so
simple but I had ignored the simplest weight loss solution of
all. Here's how I discovered it.
I was over in the UK on vacation
and saying with an Aunt. We were having tea together and my Aunt was watching
her favourite daytime TV show called "Today with Des and Mel." The host, a
rather charming guy called Des O'Connor was being asked how he stayed so trim
and slim and indeed virile at aged 70 (he had just once again become a father)
and he gave me the simplest weight loss solution I have ever heard. In fact
you'd be seriously challenged to find a fitter and more vibrant looking 70 year
old anywhere on the planet.
Des's answer was that he only
eats one meal per day in the evening, and in fact eats as much as he wants at
that one meal sitting. During the day he may well graze on a bit of fruit and
naturally drinks plenty of fluids but he swears by the plan and has done for
over 40 years.
This seemed so simple and
ridiculously easy and I was very doubtful whether it would work for me. However,
it's based on pure logic. By missing out on significant calories during the day,
the body makes up for it in the evening and then stores up calories to keep you
going the next day until your evening meal. However, I'm no scientist or doctor
and I'm only interested in results. Here's how it worked for me.
Week One was a little
challenging. I did nibble on the odd cookie to keep me going with my morning
black coffee. I missed the social aspect of lunch but contented myself with
knowing that I was doing my health and body a huge favor. In week one I lost 6
pounds and in the first month 15 pounds dropped off my body! However, having
been on many diet programs over the years I was worried it could all come back.
With this in mind I started a
gentle walking program in the evenings after my meal of the day and this really
helped me with my energy levels. I really didn't want to visit a gym or stress
myself by running.
I was eating everything I wanted
in the evenings, including ice cream and lots of ribs and fries etc. However,
after the first month my body seemed to start regulating itself and I didn't
seem to crave these heavy rich foods as much. I think my body started to learn
that it needed to eat well and wholesome in the evenings so it could get through
the next 24 hours.
In month two I dropped another 13
pounds. In month three I lost a further 12 pounds and in month four another 11
pounds making for a total weight loss of 51 pounds in FOUR months. Truly
amazing. I'm still staggered by it.
I don't recommend this plan for
life and have slowly reintroduced a healthy breakfast and a very light lunch.
It's a truly great plan for losing excess weight quickly though - and works like
nothing I've ever tried before.
One year on and I'm still at my
target weight of 180 pounds. I still do my walking exercise most evenings and
feel 1000% better with loads more energy. I've recommended this plan to dozens
of friends and I have to say it's worked for 90% of them. Give it a shot, the
odds are that it'll work great for you too! Check with your doctor first though
to be safe.
