Looking for a wedding diet and training plan that actually works? One that doesn’t take a year to achieve your look and goals? I signed up to the Tim E Fitness training plan which promises just that.
I think it is fair to say, although it is an emotional subject for some, that most brides to be want to shape up for their wedding day and start some kind of wedding diet before the event. There are some brides that will even delay their wedding for a year or two while they try and stick to a wedding diet to lose weight. Although I am not getting married (as I already have a gorgeous hubby) I agreed to test the wedding diet devised by Tim E Fitness, that can get you the body image and weight you want in just 12 weeks. I was a little scared, as weight is not a massive problem for me ( I could do with losing a couple of Kgs,) but I definitely needed to lose wobbly fat rolls from my middle having passed my prime years of looking good.
It’s been around 10 weeks since I started the Tim E Fitness training plan in how to get the body you want in the shortest possible time. When I first looked at the schedule I realised it was going to be tough but you don’t get any body image results without putting some effort in.
The Tim E Fitness plan is like having your own online trainer who has provided a personal eating and training plan based on your weight and goals. For me, I need to lose little weight but definitely need to tone up the jelly belly and flabby arms and legs.
The key here, other than exercise, is to balance your proteins, fats and carbs, and know when is the right time to be eating them and in what quantities.
I never knew that you should only consider eating carbs when you have exercised.
As Tim explains “When you work out, your body’s glycogen stores will be drained, and need to be topped up with good quality carbohydrates. Glycogen is stored carbohydrate in your muscles which will power your training and affect your metabolism.
Consuming large amounts of carbs raises your blood sugar – the body then releases insulin to bring your bloody sugar level back down. This is a good thing after training because insulin will take the calories straight to the muscle cells for rebuilding and recovery.
However, at any other time of day, insulin can store those calories in the adipose (fat) tissue. So if you’ve topped up your carbs and are still taking in more later on in the day, your body’s fat burning process will come to a stop trying to cope with the increased energy (glycogen).
The carbs I suggest that you do consume later on in the day will all be complex carbs (slow releasing energy) which won’t slow down the fat burning process.”
Simple advice but one which we generally do not stick to.
And fats are good for you (yay!) in small quantities. Now, I just adore my vegetables, and being told I can eat these unlimited with the exception of a few carb filled ones, is music to my ears. Couple some vegetables with rice, pasta, and a protein to balance the meal and I am happy. On top of these I can eat every 3 hours too (double yay). Add lots of water during the day to rehydrate and you are ‘On Plan’.
For the best results alcohol is best not drunk (what!!!) and I have to confess that I had cheated. What with birthdays, holidays, get togethers and other bad excuses the vino was consumed. No worries, though as Tim has a plan for those of us who fall off the wagon!
Track your progress on the My Fitness app to keep you on track, and you can monitor your calories in versus calories out, and your exercise.
There’s a great training workout plan too with no need to join an expensive gym, as all of the exercising can be done in your own home. There’s a great video to watch too if you’re not sure on the techniques.
3 high intensity interval training sessions a quick at just 25 minutes per session is doable for most people. I am lucky enough to belong to a health club and actually enjoy leaping about in a high intensity structured class, so this was an easy part of the plan for me.
The other piece of equipment I invested in was a Fitbit – to monitor my steps and my calories burnt was a great motivator for me. Knowing that on my rest days I needed to step up a bit made me cover those miles to burn the calories. You can see in the chart below that most days I achieve over 10,000 steps.
I have achieved nearly 1 million steps since end of February, walked over 370 miles and burnt nearly 500,000 calories! My highest achievement was just under 30,000 steps in one day, but that did involve partying which negated the alcohol and diet that day!
So what has this meant to my weight and shape I hear you ask! Well, my weight is broadly the same just a couple of Kgs in it, but I wasn’t really in this to lose weight as such, and the muscle mass has adjusted my fat weight to lean weight.
The biggest difference is my body shape. Cutting out the carbs, and eating a balanced diet together with a training plan has seen my wobbly bits slowly disappearing, a firmer stomach with a hint of a something pack (just a hint), toned legs and arms, and a good rear view in tight skinnies. I’m delighted.
