Disclaimer: I am no professional and I am not crazy educated on this subject, I am just writing what I personally do for myself, since I have gotten tons of questions.
So most of you know that I started a new 6 week program this week since Jamaica is 73 days away! The program is the faster way to fat loss! Basically, it’s an intermittent fasting, carb cycling program! That means that you only eat 8-10 hours a day and fast for the other hours and you rotate between high, normal, and low carb days!
I keep preaching to you guys that in order to look the way you want to look, you have GOT to have a strict diet. You have to cut out the junk food, the soda, the fast food, the sugar. All of it. I know, that sounds so miserable, and it very well can be for the first few weeks, but I promise, your body will thank you and your results WILL come. As I wrote in my last blog post, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a snickers or go out with your friends. Balance is good for your mental health. I NEVER say no because of the way I eat if I friend wants to go get drinks or eat out. I go. If my coworker brings donuts, I’m probably going to eat one.
I use the myfitnesspal app, and after putting in my details, this is what my recommended calorie intake is and my macros:
Net Calories: 1,200
Protein: 60 grams : 20%
Carbs: 150 grams : 50%
Fat: 40 grams : 30%
black coffee, banana
107 calories | 27g Carbs | .4g Fat | 1.3g Protein
grilled chicken, provolone, onions
270 calories | 11g Carbs | 10.5g Fat | 33.5g Protein
190 calories | 23g Carbs | 8g Fat | 20g Protein
jasmine rice, grilled chicken, brussel sprouts, onion
372 calories | 50.4g Carbs | 5.1g Fat | 33g Protein
Overall: 939 calories | 111.4g Carbs | 24g Fat | 87.8g Protein
Based on this day, I am not getting enough calories, so I definitely need to add another snack or side to my lunch. I could also switch out my snack to something with more carbs instead of protein. Regardless, this is pretty much what my days consist of.
Since I’m rotating between low, normal, and high carb days, my best advice would be to plan out your meals prior to the day of (I’m not too good at this). I currently have a notebook where I write down different meals and their macros and try to pair out my day so I’m hitting them. Also, as you can tell I am a very PLAIN jane eater, because I am extremely PICKY–like don’t eat salad picky. So even though it’s a little difficult, it’s definitely possible. As I also said in my last post –you’d be surprised at how often you were the reason you were eating a double cheeseburger from Wendy’s and a gallon of ice cream.
These pictures are just two months of clean eating. No programs. No workouts.
The right pictures are before I started the faster way to fast loss program and I will update you guys in 6 week with my results–I do not plan on losing any more weight— I am using this program to tone up and to have a routine for my healthy eating. It is a perfect program for those of you who are looking to switch to healthier eating and basic workouts to keep you active!
Look forward to more updates on my journey, I will definitely keep writing about it! Thanks for sticking around, you guys are the bomb.
