Hi! My name is Martin. I typically use the yearly „lent“ period of 45 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter to perform a diet. This is not for religious reasons but since in boxing I would fall under the heavy weights, my key target during the lent is to lose weight. This year, also inspired by Panagiotis and his insights into fasting, I set the following principles.
Today i will be sharing a personal story and some of my learnings from it.
I have been doing a low carb diet for a few years now with great results. Lost excess weight and went down to around 8% fat, a percentage easily kept all around the year. More importantly I have eliminated energy crashes, and have increased my energy levels throughout the day and hugely improved my sleep.
These days there is a lot of interest in the benefits of following the so called carnivore diet, which is mainly a meat only diet. Having grown-up with a Mediterranean diet and always having a “balance” between days where meat was served and days where we mostly eat vegetable and legumes I find this type of diet very intriguing. What would the benefits be to only eat meat?
I am now on day 1 of my third fast. Intention this time around is to do a 3-day fast since it fits with family travelling plans which actually makes it easier from my perspective. What?? Total absense of food for 3-days? Yes, and we should all incoporate it for 1-2 times a year. Let’s look into a long list of benefits when fasting.
Most of us have felt that losing weight is a struggle and something that cannot be sustained since it is always an uphill battle.
Today we will discuss the 5 main reasons why this is the case and how Ketontrack can help you in making this an enjoyable journey not only to lose weight but to reach overall health.
Many of the people I discuss with ask me how I don’t get bored by having removed so many of the food choices from diet. And my answer is that this diet has not limited me in any way, is delicious and is actually opening new paths to my tastebuds. Let’s see why.
