A while back I tried losing weight as a challenge - http://www.acorndomains.co.uk/general-board/97403-losing-weight.html I lost 4kg then plateaud; couldn't shift any more. I slipped back into my old ways and put a couple of kgs back on. I should've paid more attention to the advice given in that thread. A few weeks ago I decided enough was enough and that I AM going to get my six pack back. I wanted to do bodyweight exercises as I don't have time for gyms and don't like them anyway (used to spend hours and hours in them 20 years ago). Googling 6-pack I found a site and started reading - it made perfect sense. It was more biased towards nutrition than the exercises, which it recommends you only do 2-3 times a week anyway until your muscle recovery time is fast enough to allow more. Anyway, boring story short, I've been following the nutritional advice which is fantastic...it explains what to eat and why - how so called healthy foods and fats can be really bad not just for weight loss but your health in general, and why the reverse is true of so-called 'bad' fats - it's a real eye opener. I'm eating 4-5 small balanced meals a day, and I'm doing some bodyweight exercises 3 times a week, for literally 15 minutes. Going from one straight into the next and 15 minutes is all I can do...I'm knackered after that and ache the day after. Results - I've got below 100kgs for the first time in years (99.8kgs); I can feel my whole body firming up; got more energy; I'm eating well...loving it! Target is to get below 10% body fat so I can see my abs again. The thing is, I paid for the system which is fine, I'm glad I did - in fact I promote it through their affiliate system now - but the same basic information had been offered in my previous thread (especially by Murph) so thanks guys, I should've paid more attention at the time!
