Today was day 14 on the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet and I hit the moderate carb diet for today pretty hard.
After a fast day and shake day I absolutely need real food in my system. Nearing the end of shale day for me is probably what most people experience at the end of their fasting day.
For breakfast I had oatmeal with a banana, blueberries, and protein powder. I friggin’ LOVED this! It absolutely melted in my mouth and made me so happy – and full for hours!
For lunch I had a real turkey sandwich on homemade bread made locally.
I snacked on more turkey and an avocado later in the day.
I had a friend invite me over for dinner who was kind enough to cater her menu to the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet and fed me burgers (meat from a local farm) with onions, tomatoes, and spinach.
Overall, I was very satisfied with my eating today.
My workout was really great as well.
Today was the dynamic strength training workout, which is my absolute favorite of all the workouts from the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet, although I’m not sure why.
For my HIIT session I did 15 minutes of kettlebell swings:
- 24 seconds swing, 36 seconds recovery
- 15 lbs kettlebell
- alternated 2 arm swing, 1 arm swing L, and 1 arm swing R
- when doing 2 arm swing actually picked up another kettlebell and swung 25 pounds at one time
I had a blast doing these kettlebell swings. I was worried because I haven’t really tried to swing as long as 15 minutes before but the breaks (and Xtreme Fat Loss Diet motivation) allowed me to push through and finish.

The funny thing is that I really have no complaints right now on this program. I have adjusted to the eating plan, made my peace with the workouts, and have a pretty good attitude about finishing.
I’m just sort of coasting through now – I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Only 2 more cycles to go!
OK, stay strong, and stick to your diet and exercise plan as best you can today.
