Just hoping you will block a few when I bowl at you, otherwise I might have to wear a helmet to bowl!

I wonder if any members have tried 'The 8-week blood sugar diet'-lose weight fast and reprogramme your body?
I've just bought the book by Dr Michael Mosley,  and I'm going to give it a go. It's pretty extreme,but has had rave reviews- it's possible to lose 7kg in 2 weeks.Basically it's a fasting diet,cutting your calorie count to 800 daily (eek); the blood sugar diet is rich in olive oil,fish,nuts,fruit and veg,a Mediterranean stype of diet.
The diet involves cutting down on sugar,minimising  starchy white stuff,a big enemy if mine-bread,pasta,potatoes, rice etc.
The book advises trying it for 2 weeks and if I'm finding things too tough, trying the less extreme,5:2 approach- 2 days of fasting (800 cals) and then a low carb diet for the rest of the week.
The diet also involves an exercise plan.
Are any members on a health drive?perhaps we can share stories on here?
I'm about 25kg overweight,the fattest I've ever been,and need to sort myself out! Wish me luck!!

I just read this thread and suprised myself when i saw that i had commented... i had completely forgot and another reason why this thread is so good.

Just over 2 weeks ago i decided to get a personal trainer... and honestly i dont know why i didnt do it sooner. Ive had 5 sessions and can can seriously felt he fitness benefits. My recovery is exponentially better, my strength is improving and every session he various it and works out different groups.... I literally have no core... my mind says right, lets do this crunch and twist movement and i can only assume i get the mental equivalent of file error 404... nothing moves.

I had a session today with more core work in it.. its literally the hardest thing i have ever done but i can definitely see the improvement....

I go on holiday in December so i have tasked myself with 2/3 sessions a week and i dare i say it, im Actually starting to enjoy going, something i never thought i would have said before.

There is a rumour at our club that i might stand for 2nd team captain but if i was going to do it i want to not only be captain but play to the best of my ability.. and at 17st that was never going to be realistic.... Its been a real motivator and fingers crossed i can keep it going once the budget i have for the trainer runs out.

I know not everyone has the disposable income to use a personal trainer but by the time i have reduced my alcohol intake down to the recommended maximums and cut out all the additional fast food etc im Really not spending much more. Given i have 2 small children I also couldnt think of spending my money on anything better to make sure i have as much life with them as possible.

Love this thread.... good luck to everyone who is trying in even a small way to improve there wellbeing (not to mention their game)

If you are struggling to just make that first step i highly recommend a personal trainer to help you... just put it into facebook and you will find loads of people doing it close to you.

Thats what i did and given he is just really starting to get his business off the ground the cost was about half what i thought it would be...

Keep it up all, roll on winter nets

Good stuff @Boondougal, Im in a group trained session. We do 3 x1 hr sessions a week. I prep all of my food for work in some trays that I got off amazon. Coupled with a piece of fruit and some nuts for snacks Ive stopped spending money at work buying food. This could be a tenner a day so I save money with the new regime! Ive found that Im much fitter and my strength is really improving

If you're strengths improving and you're still using those 3lb monster lumps of bats I would hate to be the bowler

I am into weight training for long time so I say avoid any kinda crash dieting.
You gained weight in years so it will take it years to go away. That's the healthy way to shed extra weight.

Anything you lose using these crash diets will come back and would be harder to lose next time as your body will resist it.

Try walking on empty stomach for at least 40 to 60 mins at a pace so your heart beat goes up.

You gotta start cooking your own meals that's the only way you gonna know how much you eating and what you eating and believe me it works out cheaper me.

I do see what you're saying and it makes a lot of sense.
I'm two weeks in and the weight loss isn't as fast as I was expecting/hoping.As the calorie intake is quite low,at times I do get quite hungry,but try to resist the urge to snack on things like bread,which was a real killer for me. I try to have a small handful of nuts instead.
Generally though my calorie intake is around the 1000/1100 mark,it is incredibly thought to keep to 800,as the book suggests.
I do cook myself,using olive oil and starchy carbohydrates like broccoli,rather than rice and potatoes.
I've done three spinning classes in the past week and some kettle bell sessions- it's short and sweet at the moment but building it up.

The one thing you have to in place with his diet etc, is the support network
It's difficult if there are constant temptations under your nose

I've tried to follow the inter fasting method and it's hard to live like that for me

The simplest and most practical method I've found is to try and cook all meals
If I can't,(I'm on the road all week) then I eat raw un processed food types,(mainly fruit)
At night I try and cook if I'm not home too late,
Another thing is don't beat yourself up , if you slip and have something processed
It's not the end of the world

Basically cut the calories down, it's the simplest way to lose weight, and avoid processed foods if possible,

It is very difficult to resist sometimes but if you have some snack don't worry about it as long as your calories are under what you should have daily.

As you mentioned you cook with olive oil.  Personally I wouldn't use olive oil as they not what they supposed to be. If you do some research you will find original n pure olive oils are very expensive and they should be due to being purest and work goes into making it. Olive oil we get from super markets ain't real.  They are mixed with other oils hence cheap.

I use butter by YEO Valley they are family farm. I use all milk yogurt butter made by them or buy it fresh from a local farm.

Butter is healthy as it help normal testosterone levels. More testosterone less the fat we carry.
