You may remember this article I wrote 2 months ago about following the leangains.com protocol for a couple of months to see what would happen.
It was really more to spur you all on rather than expect anything drastic myself.
Did I achieve anything?
YES I did.
Firstly, I managed to maintain muscle mass which is very fricken important.
Secondly, my fiance tells me that she’s noticed the final two abdominals peaking their way through bottom end of my waistline.
What did I give up?
I gave up NOTHING.
In fact, I’ve been eating a lot of naughty sh*t the past 2 months. This includes apple crumbles, tarts, pies and countless amounts of rocky road.
As leangains suggests, you really can eat what you want, when you want it
All you have to do is fast for 16 hours a day (12-14 for the ladies).
Just have your last meal at night before 9pm and don’t eat again until lunch time (12-1pm) the next day.
Do that at least 5 days a week and Bobs your uncle.
What about drastic results?
Ive found the lower in body fat you are, the slower the fat loss progress will be. Although others have said on the previous post, they are losing pounds and pounds of fat even after only a few weeks on the program.
Martin posts a lot of great results on his website, but you need to keep in mind, a lot of the results shown are after 3-6 months on the program.
This is a GOOD thing — anything that takes time to come off, will be more sustainable in the long run.
Now it’s your turn…
