Its that time again!
Most of my clothes dont fit, I am not physically fit, and I have an island holiday booked for later in the year. I want to look beach ready again- but I do not want to be on a diet while I am there!! Giving myself a maximum of 12 weeks to cut- definitely no more than this.
Starting out at
I calculated my bodyfat using a 7 point caliper calculator. We used a digital caliper however we couldnt determine if the pressure we used was consistent. Results varied greatly so going for the old plastics that give a satisfying click when pressed enough.
Consistency is always key.
Whether its your diet, exercise, weigh in, progress photos or body fat testing! Keep the conditions consistent and the trends will speak for themselves.
For nutrition I’m turning to science with Dr Layne Norton. IIFYM has always been the king in the dieting world but I didnt get great results myself because I wasnt sure on my metabolism- whether it was slower due to past dieting or not? And as a result of lack of confidence I wasnt sure how much to decrease calories etc
Layne Norton has solved this dilemma by providing an extremely affordable solution with Avatar Nutrition.
Avatar Nutrition takes your details and goals and provides you with personalized macros. As you weigh in each week it adapts. I swear its so cheap for what you get- there are member resources with so many scientifically backed articles pn nutrition, videos and recipes. Goals and advice are not just for fat loss- I will continue to use AN to reverse diey and maintain after my cut. Plus- there’s a facebook support group for fun.
To begin I have selected Fast Fat Loss Goal. I was given the macros –
- 1672 Calories
- 147g Protein
- 56g Fat
- 145g Carbs
I like to follow high and low days to give myself allowance if I am going out and or to supplement heavier training.
I will be keeping track weekly on this blog, and daily motivation on instagram @stayhercourse
Next weigh in- 5 days away!
