Round other people…
Get used to people telling you that you don’t need to lose weight while offering you something that’ll make you gain it
Get used to people taking offence when you decline their offer of that delicious homemade cake
Get used to people looking at you funny when you pull out your packed lunch
In the gym…
Find you do well when someone tells you exactly what to do? Then get direction. Articles are are OK. Books are good. Manuals are best.
Thing is, most people don’t lack direction.
For example; If you, dear reader, did everything you already knew how to do to lose weight would you drop a few pounds?
So direction isn’t [...]
Lost 12 lbs and 4.3% body fat
Name: Alison Fleming
When Kieran asked for volunteers to try his “lose 12lbs in 12 weeks” programme, I jumped at the chance to be a “guinea pig”. I had been gradually putting on weight over the last few decades which was becoming harder to lose. My cholesterol was high [...]
Oh, so you thought we stop eating when we’re full too?
Apparently we don’t. We get our fullness cues from our environment. What do I mean? Usually we stop eating when the food’s gone.
Remember that bag of crisps you ate? Did you stop when you were full? Or when even the dust from the crisps had [...]
Be careful what you use it on. You’ve got a limited amount.
Try saying no to the glass of wine after spending all day resisting the urge to throttle your colleague. Or not diving straight in the biscuit tin after resisting the temptation to put your delightful children up for adoption. Will power? Ain’t … gonna… [...]
One Goal = 100% focus.
Two goals = 50% focus.
You’ve seen ‘two goals’ before. Looks alot like failure.
What ONE thing would have the biggest impact on your body if you did it every day for the next two weeks?
Write it on the calendar. Tick it off everyday.
Got two weeks straight? Congratulations you’ve probably just built yourself [...]
Every week someone asks what I eat. The conversation goes something like this; ‘So Kieran, you seem to of found the key to eternal youth… what do you eat for breakfast/lunch/dinner?’
They always look suitably unimpressed with my answer. Like they expected I’d eat nothing but goji berries, coconut oil and perhaps a rare salt from [...]
Ahh yes, December. Time of gluttony. Even though you might eat around 4500 kcals on Xmas day (yup, that’s how much the average joe gets through) It’s more the time around Xmas that does the damage.
The leftovers, the chocolates, the all day boozing. You know, the stuff that makes Christmas… well … Christmas!
So, my advice [...]
Here’s what I’d tell a skinny guy to do if he wanted to get fat:
1. Skip breakfast and go all day only grabbing a bite to eat
By evening you’ll be starving and fit to eat a horse.
2. Always watch TV while you eat
You’ll easily eat twice as much without even noticing!
3. Use large plates
It’s ingrained [...]
Like many people for a number of years I paid my gym membership and went through the motions without getting any results. At the end of March this year I decided I needed to do something about both my lack of fitness and being overweight… I found Kieran and liked the answers he gave [...]
