I'm going to try this diet for two weeks this spring and two this summer to try and get lean. I don't like to diet with a severe calorie restriction for more then two weeks because I don't get good results. I don't like to diet with limited calorie restriction because I find it's hard to be exact with my diet. I like simple guidelines rather then strict rules.
Basically for two weeks I'm going rid my house of everything but veggies and lean meat. No potatoes or starchy veggies, but as much spinach, broccoli, celery, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, and asparagus as I can eat. Also, I can have all the lean beef, fish, chicken, and pork I can handle. I can use whatever spices I want but no sauces. I will also supplement with protein shakes, probably about three per day.
This means that my protein intake is going to be very high as will my fiber intake. I will get almost no carbs and limited fat intake.
I will workout with heavy weights just as I am now but I will also add 20 mins of cardio to the end of my workouts.
My start date will be March 17th.
I dare anyone to stick to this diet and not lose weight. Seems simple doesn't it?
