Twelve individuals………..…. are undergoing a major change in their lifestyles and attitude towards food.
Part of the New Year- New You programme involved eliminating all toxins from the diet. This includes:
All processed foods.
12 days in to the programme, this is where the weight loss really starts to happen.
To show my dedication to the programme, I’m doing it with my clients, sharing in the ups and downs of the programme.
To be honest, right now there’s a lot more ups than downs. I’m now experiencing:
Waking up early with energy
Sustained energy throughout the day
Decreased fat percentage.
I can’t wait for next week…bring it on baby!
With the headache finally gone, my energy levels are through the roof!
Especially in the morning!
For those still suffering from the Elimination Diet I set you, there is a light at the end of the tunnel….and its a very nice light too! So keep it up!
Here’s my breakfast this morning:
Huevos Rancheros (serves 2 or three)
6 fresh eggs
2 green onions, chopped, including the green parts
1 fresh tomato, peeled and chopped
One jalapeño pepper, sliced (optional!)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves
six shakes of sea salt
1 tablespoon oregano, chopped
Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Add the onions and brown for a minute
or two. Add the chopped tomato and let cook for a few minutes on medium high heat
until the tomatoes are somewhat cooked and mushy and some of the moisture has
evaporated. Add the oregano, and, if you’re using one, the jalapeño pepper. Crack
eggs directly into the pan with the cooking sauce. Add salt and stir with a spatula to
mix in the sauce and to scramble the eggs. Remove from heat when the eggs cook to
the desired consistency. Remove the mixture from the pan and put into a serving
bowl. Sprinkle with oregano.
Lunch is going to be sweet potatoes, with chicken breast and vegetables. I’ll be snacking on a banana, apple and almonds through the day. Tonight I’ve got some thick vegetable soup for dinner…yummy!
Training: Heavy push day, with Kettlebell military presses, Dumbell chest press, some squats, and heavy dips for triceps.
Phew! …oh and my Kettlebell class this evening!
DAY 1…..Tonight twelve lucky individuals embarked on a journey of self discovery, perseverance and will power, all leading to a new them in 25 days.
We talked about the Elimination Diet for half an hour, asking and answering questions… followed by a short intro to Kettlebell training.
My own training today consisted of a Heavy Pull day of Pull ups, Deadlifts, Kettlebell snatches and 1-arm Kettlebell rows.
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with Smoked Salmon and chopped peppers and onions.
Snack: Porridge with berries
Lunch: Rice and Quinoa, with Chicken and vegetables
Snack: Banana and almonds before workout
Lunch 2: More rice and Quinoa
Snack: Apple and Almonds
Dinner: Mackerel, Potatoes and Raw grated beetrot.
Snack: Yoghurt and Almonds.
…..GETTING READY FOR THE ELIMINATION DIET,
Part of my New Year- New You Weight Loss Programme.
Using Dax Moy’s guidelines, here’s what I bought today:
CORN ON COB
NUTS & SEEDS
Phew! Now I gotta eat it all! Bring it on!
This week ten lucky individuals will be embarking on one of the best Diet and training programmes they will ever complete.
Following the Elimination Diet for 25 days, coupled with high intensity cardio workouts, the programme will ensure a weight loss of at least 15lbs.
I’m so sure of this, that if anyone completes at least three workouts a week and follows the diet to the letter, and does not lose at least 15lbs in the 25 days, they will get their money back!
Bring it on!
