I have been so frustrated with my weight loss journey over the past year. It has been a roller coaster and it has been really hard. This coming from a person who used to compete in bodybuilding and was able to get down to 3 or 4 percent body fat. Now that I am older it has been a real struggle as it has been for many other people. It’s not easy. I still weight train 3 – 6 days a week for an hour each session, ride bikes for miles every week and I am still fat and not happy with the way I look. I could lose 60lbs. It really shows that 80% of the work is done in the kitchen.
This week I started following an intermittent fasting routine. I have used Keto for many years and used to use Keto when I competed in bodybuilding. Recently I was watching a vlog from Professional Photographer Peter Hurley who just recently competed in a world championship sailing competition in Japan. Peter lost 40lbs and shared how he did it on his blog. I decided to record a video and do a weekly check in video and post it on YouTube to hold myself accountable.
If you have watch my YouTube video’s or read my blog you will know I’m a huge fan of using tech to help accomplish goals. My Apple Watch and Apple iPhone are a huge part of my daily routine. Peter Hurley is using an app called zero.
Zero is an intermittent fasting app for your iPhone and Apple Watch. You can download the app by going to: http://www.zerofasting.com
The website has step by step on what to do with using fasting. It does not cover anything in Keto but is just a timer to use to track the time you fast. It records the history of the fasting and gives you statistics from streaks, average time, weight loss etc.
I will use this forum on YouTube to do a weekly check in on fasting and post it here with my updates. I am using this as a way to hold myself accountable. One of the key things you can do to help increase your success is find somebody or something that can hold you accountable. So here is my current measurements.
I’m 6’2, when I started this program I weighed in at 253.2lbs on July 1, 2019. My body fat percentage is 27.6%.
Any experience with Intermittent Fasting and Keto? If so I would love to hear. Either follow the link to my YouTube channel or leave it here. I look forward to everyone holding me accountable.
