    Rapid Fat Loss Tips

    Shop Now
    Hi all, following a mostly PB lifestyle (ie about 90%), I've managed to loose about 7kg (15lbs). I'd estimate I've still got another 2kg (5lbs) to loose. For the next two weeks, I'm off work so I'd thought I'd see if I could loose those last 2kgs. What things can I, or should I, do to help rid myself of those last 2 kgs (eg morning walks everyday before breakfast; cut carbs to under 50gm a day (I currently avg about 60-80 gm of carbs a day)).

    DS

    P.S. I currently weight train 3 times a week (full-body workouts) and sprint once a week.

    Actually, I forgot to mention I have stalled. Nothing lost now for 3-4 weeks :-(

    well to be honest 5 pounds is pretty relative. u fluctuate in weight all day. so u could be 4 pounds lighter one day and be heavier the next. if u weight train 3 times a week, ur going to be gaining muscle mass. maybe add in some light cardio on the other days, if sprinting is ur only cardio.

    You are missing one key element of the PB fitness routine: Play!

    Starting up a weekly pickup basketball game helped me break a plateau.

    have a carb refeed or a weekly cheat day. After the cheat, do a fast and back to lower carb. Also sprint twice per week. Eat higher carbs after weight training.

    I started doing Tabata Sprints(on the bike,,if i dont lift then I run) after my heavy lift/carb refeeds just to assure myself that I am depleted. Huge difference, also find the point when working out that you make strange weird unnatural noises. Doing my sprints at the gym the other day...I let out a "BLEH" I got really weird looks This goes for squatting as well(usually instead of noises it is spit flying out of my mouth). People always say it is the little things that make the last 2-4% BF disappear and I am finally understanding this.

    Have you stalled, or just put on some muscle weight while still losing body fat?
    Don't just go by the scales, take a look in the mirror, use a tape measure, measure your body fat somehow. It doesn't really matter how, or how accurate it is, just as long as it's consistent so you can use the results for trending purposes.

    I've given myself a target weight of 77kg by Xmas, but that's just because it's quicker than mentioning that my goal is to get stronger and in doing so pack on some lean muscle here, here and here, but not let my waist get bigger
    If you're interested in my (very) occasional updates on how I'm working out and what I'm eating click here.
