I lost a bunch weight earlier this year using a combination of Keto, fasting, and a once per week, 20 minute, Body by Science workout as inspired by the book by Dr. Doug McGuff.
I dropped from 265lbs down to about 220lbs. After 3 months of that, I decided to take short break, which turned into a very long break, predictably resulting in weight regain. I’ve restarted keto, have begun alternate day fasting, and I’ve just restarted my Body by Science workouts. I’m currently at 229lbs and my goal is to drop down to 185.
Here are some pics of my progress thus far:
I’m about 8lbs heavier than that right now, but that’s the gist of the progress I’ve managed so far this year. I’m looking to making equivalent progress in 2020.
The one thing I learned from my time in the gym is that form & intensity is super important! To that end, I’m going to be spending some time with a personal trainer now and then to keep my form in check and to make sure that I’m truly reaching muscle failure in each exercise.
Who else out there is doing Body by Science? Any pointers you’d like to share? Have you used a trainer that specialized in HIT? Was it worth it?
I’ll be posting my progress over the next few months in my accountability thread, but I thought I’d throw this out there to the forum at large to see who else is doing Body by Science with fasting so that we can compare notes and see what’s working (or not working!).
