Joel Marion’s Xtreme Fat Loss Diet Day 6

by Susan · 20 comments

Ahhhhhh! I’ve been waiting and working towards this day for for 5 whole days!

It is day 6 on the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet and that means I have completed the first cycle of 5 days and I am back to a cheat day with density workout.

Results From Cycle 1:

I dropped 3 pounds and about 1 inch overall. Nothing to write home about and far short of what I expected with Joel’s claims of 1 pound per day for 25 days.

I suspect that the weight is water but what do I know?

And I only have a few pounds to lose so maybe it will take a little more effort for me to see results. Fat isn’t just going to fall off my body….yet!

But I did take a before picture and will also take them after each cycle I complete so I can also go by how I look.

I sort of already see a weird sort of shifting taking place in physique – sort of a re-shaping and defining thing happening (which it better be after all these strength training sessions).

So, I am hesitant to be disappointed with my numbers that I have achieved so far on the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet because when you manipulate fat AND muscle, you just have to look in the mirror for true results. Nothing else matters.

How Do I Feel?:

The next thing I want to mention is that after being sore from 5 straight days of intense strength workouts, I am no longer stiff or sore!

This is really great since I spent the better part of the week wincing every time I went to sit down on the toilet. (For those of you who don’t see it – I just mean my legs hurt really bad).

I never thought a continuous strength training program would actually result in a decrease in muscle soreness. Maybe it was all the protein I took yesterday?

Also, I have always had plenty of energy during the last five days except after my strength workout on day 3. After I had my shake I really wanted to take a little nap.

Other than that, no energy problems.

Today’s Cheat Day & Density Workout:

As I mentioned, I have dreamed about this day since the last cheat day 5 days ago!

And I was pretty naughty today too. Here is everything I ate today:

  • 1 bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich on croissant
  • 1 strawberry and cream cheese filled croissant
  • 1 chocolate filled croissant
  • Shrimp Alfredo pasta with cheesy biscuits
  • 1 banana split

Uh, where’s the actual food here? I recognize egg, and pasta…..but everything else is crap!

The goal of cheat day is to stimulate your body to increase leptin, not go into sugar shock.

My day should have included more foods like pancakes, french toast, potatoes, sandwiches, pizza…..not chock-filled with junk food. Shame on me!

Shame, shame, shame!

I will do better next cheat day.

But again, I am going to do no further damage and just move on. I won’t feel too guilty and beat myself up over it.

And I certainly won’t beat myself up over the banana split – that was heaven!

Today’s workout was back to a density workout. The Xtreme Fat Loss Diet provides 2 workouts per type (i.e. density workout) so that you can toggle back and forth between the two of them each time you are scheduled to do one.

That’s pretty cool not just for physiological reasons, but because I bore easy and need a new distraction often.

The good news for today is that I ate plenty of calories and will therefore have more than enough energy to get through tomorrow, which is another fasting day.

Fasting days need 100% mental commitment and toughness. It has very little to do with physiology.

I will be back with day 7 update soon!

What about walking Yvonne. You could still do some HIIT by walking slow and then walking a bit faster! Here’s to your success!

Hi there everyone, not very computer literate so took me ages to get this blog.
Just a general question. I have stated XFLDiet and am on my seconed fast day.
I am unable to do any workouts due to a back problem, I do not have any scales but am desperate to lose weight, I am sure with the diet I shall lose weight, but is there anyone in the same boat as me that has started the plan as well?
If so how are you getting on?

Hi Yvonne,

Thanks for the message. Obviously this is an extreme diet meant for rapid fat loss through diet and exercise. Not everyone will be able to do the diet, the workouts, or both 100% of the time. I am sure with a clean and strategic diet as in the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet you will lose fat, it will probably just be at a slower rate than if you were able to do the workouts.

Isn’t there ANY activity that you can be doing?

Hi Susan,
My main goals are to lose weight, about 15 lbs and get toned and lean. I am now on day 9 today and yesterday was the first day that I really did anything different from what Joel’s plan says to do. Before my last P+F shake I wanted something to chew, something to actually eat instead of only drinking all day so I decided to have two pieces of turkey breast slices. After eating that I just added less protein and fat to my last shake to make up for it! I also made some salsa for day 9, Mod carb day and ate a little bit of that. My three fave shakes are the Oat and Honey, Creamy Strawberry Passion, and the PB&J from the first day of the 25 meal plan.
So far, for results, I do see a difference in my stomach. It seems flatter and my clothes seem looser. After the first cycle, there wasn’t much difference in my measurements and I haven’t been able to weigh myself since I don’t have a scale. But this second cycle, things seem to be changing!
What are your goals? And your results so far?

Hey Susan,
When the bodyweight workouts were released did you happen to pick those up as well? I picked those up to change from going to the gym everyday and on day 5, Depletion day I did the workout from the bodyweight manual. Do you think those workouts are just as good? Thanks

Hey Kristin, thanks for the messages! Congrats on doing the Xtreme Fat Loss DIet. What are your goals and what have been your results so far? Yes, I do think that bodyweight workouts are great – I workout right at home for all of my workouts anyway. It’s better than fighting other gym goers for stuff I want to use, which always happens when I want to do circuits. Love your cheat day. Trust me, I have this next one all planned out…it’s going to be a killer day!

Talk soon,

Hi Susan! I am soo glad I came across your blog! I can’t wait to read each day because I am also doing Joel’s Xtreme Fat Loss Challenge and I am on day 7. I didn’t do so well on my cheat day either. I sent Joel a ton of questions but haven’t heard back yet do hopefully will hear back soon. I had some fiber chocolate Digestive cookies for breakfast, with strawberries, a bratwurst sausage from the German restaurant that came with a bit of mashed potatoes and saurkraght for lunch and when I got home I had some lamb paella that I had originally made for my lunch yesterday. I also stopped by the bakery and picked up these amazing chocolate cookies and a little thing of Cookie dough Ice Cream. For dinner I had some more paella and veggies and some Milka Chocolate with hazelnuts.
So far today, the hardest thing has been getting the Branched Amino Acid pills down. I am not good with pills so that makes it hard! I’m off to the gym now but will keep in touch! Have a great Fast day!
By the way I live in Spain, hence the German restaurant, Paella and bakery! Mmm
