I cannot reiterate this more- Tim Ferris is da man, Tim Ferris is awesome! I would gladly serve as a personal butler for free for the man for months just to gain more of his wisdom.
the following stats were measured using a Zelmer Balance diagnostic scale every morning after the loo
I am not promoting this scale above similar scales- indeed the first one that I got was broken so I had to replace it- the cool thing about such scales though is that they are very inexpensive- I got mine for around 30-40$ - and while they might not be uber accurate, they are consistent and that's what's really important.
At first I went on the low carb diet- I mainly cut out everything white, all sugary soft drinks, etc- at first this was hard but it did work at first, later though I had to add in quantity reduction- to reliably loose weight there days I have to eat a salad in the morning and that's it for the day. it's hard but you get used to it and it works. I think many people have a "fear of hunger" - every time someone feels even a tad hungry, like I used to, I used to almost get a panic attack like "oh noes I'm gonna die of hunger if I don't eat this extra sammich!" - and this was when I was still heavy. You have to gradually ween your body of a fat mans food volume and eat like a thin man would to be thin.
An additional note regarding bowel movements- I used to have them like once every 1-2 days- these days it's more like every 5-6 days. At first I found this disturbing and even took laxatives but I now am used to it - one less inconvenience in life- I do not feel congested or anything like that it's just new.
Exercise: I got meself a used 24kg kettlebell for like 30-40$ which was an awesome deal, I also do the 2 exercises Tim Ferris Recommended- nothing original here. Also just recently I got my first ever full time job and it has a barbell and my boss trains me a bit so that's epic. These days I can do about 50kb swings- really epic for the cardio
FINALLY MY QUESTION:
Should I continue this way to like 11% bodyfat or should I start eating more right now? I know I shouldn't trust BMI and my fat level is completly safe atm - 14% - but still.
