How To Lose Weight, The Mixed Guy's Way

Some of you may know, but most of you won't, that I lost a significant amount of weight in a short time span. Seeing as people keep asking me how I did it, I've decided to post about it.

Note: This is probably not a healthy way to lose weight.
Disclaimer: This is just my personal experience and should not be your guide to losing weight unless you know you will be safe using it.

What You Will Need:

  • Weight to Lose (Seriously, there is only so much you can't weigh.)
  • Motivation
  • Tuna
  • Celery
  • Chicken Breast
  • Lettuce
  • Soy Bean Milk / Low Fat Milk
  • Mayonnaise
  • Bread / Wholewheat Cereal (No sugar, chocolate etc.)
  • Water, and lots of it.
Daily Routine:
Throughout the day: Just keep drinking water.
Breakfast: Everyday this will consist of a slice of bread or a bowl of cereal and tall glass of Low-Fat / Soybean Milk. Remember to keep the portion small.
Lunch: This meal will alternate everyday between Celery with a Tuna-Mayo dip / Grilled Chicken Breast on a bed of lettuce with no dressings. Sprinkle a small amount of cheese if desired. Try to eat this meal as late as you can possibly stand because...
Dinner: This is going to be the hardest part because... you don't get to eat dinner! This is where drinking water comes in handy, just keep drinking water and it will start to make you feel full.
  • Every 3 days you can treat yourself to something like a cup of chocolate.
  • Soybean Milk contains protein needed to build muscles if you are looking to lose weight and build muscle at the same time.
  • Stay away from Carbohydrates like potato/rice/noodles ect. as if you do not use the energy they will turn into fat.
  • If you do start to feel peckish, just take out a stick of celery and gnaw away.
  • To get off this routine, slowly start to incorporate more foods into your diet, however, do not go back to eating like you did before as you will probably end up like you were and all the work will have been in vain.
Q: But I really love to eat, is there anyway I can lose weight while eating a lot?
A: I've heard about losing weight by eating a lot, but thats not what my routine was like, so go find another diet.

Q: I need to go out with friends to eat at a restaurant, what should I do?
A: To be honest, this happened a lot with me while I was dieting and I just ate like I normally do when I go out. Becareful though, don't go in saying "well if I can lose weight while eating like noramlly, then I don't have to stick to the routine." or you will lose your motivation.

Q: How much weight did you lose and over how much time?
A: Well, for the first 3 weeks, I lost 10kg, but after that it became a much slower process as I began to start eating more. All in all I lost 18kg in a bit less than 3 months.
