Welcome and thanks for arriving at my first post and what follows is an introduction to the 3 Week Diet with the story of how it has changed my life. You’ll have the opportunity to click on some links that will take you to the creator of the 3 Week Diet Plan’s homepage, Brian Flatt a personal trainer from the U.S. Here he will be give you more detail about this exciting product, which comes as a comprehensive ebook and/or audible presentation.
Brian offers full support for his 3 Week Diet via phone or email and the plan does come with a 60 Day Guarantee.
I stumbled upon the 3 Week Diet a couple of months ago and lost 16lbs in the 21 days. The science backed philosophy has changed the way I view food and exercise beyond the 3 week time frame and I’ve been so impressed with the product that I have decided to promote it on this blog.
3 weeks is a brilliant and manageable nugget of time that will allow you to achieve fantastic results, which will really empower you. My weight ballooned from 196lbs to over a 300lbs over 3 years following a serious soccer injury and subsequent ‘blues’.
Before I found The 3 Week Diet I had managed to lose some weight but I really needed a help in hand to continue towards my fighting weight of 196lbs.
Obviously I didn’t reach my ultimate weight goal in 3 weeks and I’m currently 231 lbs and looking to embark on another 3 week cycle. A diary of this 3 week journey will follow. That’s the beauty of this plan; you can apply it more than once.
As I had/have a lot of weight/body fat to shift I was never going to lose it all in 3 weeks. However if you are within 15 – 20 lbs of your ultimate target, you can definately achive your weight goal in 3 weeks!
As I’ve already said the philosophy has stayed with me between cycles and I’ve been eating whatever I like. Brian Flatt also makes it scientifically clear that rapid weight/body fat loss is not dangerous and that carrying excess weight definately is!
Yes, I’ve been eating whatever I like after The 3 Week Diet. This means I eat sweet stuff, some carbs, a beer or two etc. The ‘secret’ is to stay within your daily calorie limit! So yes on some days I have some chocolate and maybe a cake or two and as these foods sit within my 2500 daily calorie limit happy days!
However as I haven’t reached my ultimate weight goal, between the 3 week cycles I have been consciously eating less calories than my 2500 daily limit, around 2100 calories a day. By drinking loads of water, eating plenty of fruit, vegetables and upping my protein intake, I have continued to lose weight.
I now eat roughly, 80% protein and 20% carbohydrates. Most of my carbs come from vegetables and fruit but I do have some complex carbs like potato, brown rice and pasta. I eat plenty of fish and chicken, some red meat but the real secret to The 3 Week Diet is allowing the body to ‘rest’ for longer between meals. Funnily enough most people achieve a significant ‘rest’ between meals once they go to bed. Last night I didn’t eat for 10 hours…I was mostly asleep!
- How does it work Joe?
The 3 Week Diet comprises of four phases. The beginning of the first phase gets your body prepped and ready for significant weight/body fay loss. Over the first 7 days, if you follow the plan, you can potentially lose 5 – 10 pounds or more.
Phase 2 covers the 8th day, which is a really interesting and eye opening 24 hours! Rest assured your body will love it and you’ll find it easy! You can do it!
Phase 3 covers days 9 to 11 where additional food types are introduced into your fat burning furnace, that is your body!
Phase 4, days 12 – 21 really is the easiest part. You will have achieved so much coming this far in 11 days, feeling more energised, mentally alert and the scales won’t be lying…you will have lost significant body fat/weight. This will inspire you to smash the next 10 days as a more regular diet appears!
And don’t worry if you have a ‘blip’ By blip I mean you have a cheeky bar of chocolate or muffin. You haven’t failed, you’re just human! The key is to perhaps make a note of this ‘blip’ and get right back on with the plan and what you have to do today. Really try to avoid alcohol and high sugar drinks for the 3 weeks as this is a huge factor in weight gain or not losing as much as you would like.
Water intake plays a key role in The 3 Week Diet. Slowly you can increase your intake and as well as hydrating the body and flushing out your system, it will supress hunger pangs. You should aim for your urine to be clear all day. Obviously in the morning the first pee will be darker, so start your day with a large glass of water.
Hunger pangs are temporary and is your bodies’ way of telling you that you’ve digested your last meal. Really try to avoid surcoming to these temporary feelings, they will pass quickly. The longer you can wait between eating the better!
So Joe, does exercise play a key role?
Yes but it’s not excessive and it won’t ‘eat’ up loads of your time. The 3 Week Diet comes with a home based exercise plan that you can impliment as much (or as little) as you choose.
I now do 20 – 30 minutes of resistant home exercises 5 days a week. However at the start I did less than this. What I have done however is have a lovely walk in the mornings by the sea. (I live in Dorset U.K right on the coast)
A brisk walk on an empty stomach really sets the body up for the day. Occasionally I’ll go for a short run (as my weight now allows it) but for many people who are over weight a low impact brisk walk is the perfect thing to do. However, you don’t need to do any exercise! You won’t have the same dramatic weight/body fat loss as other people but you will lose weight.
What goes in our mouths is the key to healthy and sustainable living and exercise follows swiftly behind as this enforces your well being both physically and mentally. Specific health conditions can be regressed, such as high blood pressure and other weight related issues. It’s never too late!
My mum’s friend is 72 years old and doesn’t really exercise and eats well…too well. She told me the other day, before going on a walk with a friend, that this was her first exercise in 3 weeks. Yes, she hadn’t even been for a walk for 3 weeks! She’s practically seizing up at the ‘young’ age of 72 so it’s imperative that she makes changes now. Ultimately it’s down to her, you and me to boss our weight and exercise.
I spoke with her about the 3 Week Diet and encouraged her to start walking for 20 – 30 minutes every morning. She can then just increase her walking speed and tackle some hills. Sharing your goals with a few friends and family can really help. I don’t choose to tell everyone I meet about my goals but loved ones can gently encourage you to achieve your goals, thus increasing your will power.
There’s a whole section on ‘will power’ in The 3 Week Diet and Brian outlines tactics to really help you lose weight and body fat following his plan.
I wish you all the success with losing weight/body fat and hope you make the right choice with regards to The 3 Week Diet. It really is cutting edge, scientific information that Brian delivers in an easy and well informed way.
As I mentioned at the top of this blog, I will be undertaking a new 3 week cycle of the diet plan and look forward to writing a diary on this blog about the 3 week journey. I promise to be honest even if I do have a blip and eat a cheeky bar of chocolate 🙂
