Xtreme Fat Loss Diet Day 14

by Susan · 13 comments

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.

If you’d like to see the proper way to do a kettlebell swing check out this video:

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.

According to Zig Ziglar:

“Total success is an attainable goal.”

Thank God! You will do this!

Hey Susan,

When you went to you friends house, did you just eyeball it or eat till you were content in the protein department?

For lunch today I made this recipe from the Diet Solution, ground chicken with spices (paprika, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper powder) and put it all over a bed of spinach and mixed greens. I also added some tomato and cooked mushrooms my husband had made for his omelette lunch today! Again, I measured out my 18 grams of protein and it is a small portion but I know that I am eating again in a few hours so it’s not so bad. Normally in the past, we eat much bigger lunches here in Spain but I also am not eating 5 times a day. Still getting used to eating little meals!

Hey Kristin, yes I eyeballed it and as well as just went by how my stomach felt. You have been doing this for awhile now, so you probably could figure out the quantities of food you need without measuring, if you had to. I still measure at home but since I was at my friend’s house, I just took what I thought was right. I knew she had 1 lb of burger and she made 4 equal sized burgers and one little one. SO, I guessed they were all just shy of 1/4 lb and went based on how many grams of protein I knew was in 1/4 lb of beef.

Didn’t know you guys ate bigger lunches in Spain! That’s cool, we do things back asswards here in the US. I honestly don’t know how we function sometimes!

Keep up the great work!

Hey Susan,

How are you measuring your food to know you are getting the right quantities of the macronutrients?

I bought a food scale and for example on mod carb days, I can have 59 grams of carbs the first two meals with 18 grams of protein and then my last three meals I can have 13 grams of fat.

When I measure out 70 grams of dry oatmeal, calorieking says thats 46 grams of carbs and 11.8 grams of protein. Since I need 18 grams of protein I add a little bit of protein powder to get me to my 18 grams and then I have a piece of fruit to give my more carbs. It seems like a pretty big portion of carbs in the morning. And then less food in the afternoon by only getting proteins and fats.

What do you think about the portion sizes? Thanks

Hey Kristin, I do the exact same thing. I measure out grams of foods that don’t come prepackaged (i.e. turkey) using a food scale. I have similar gram requirements as you and yes, it does feel like a lot of carbs on mod carb days. BUT by the time I get there I am not complaining! I also added some protein powder to my oatmeal with bananas and blueberries to make up my specific macronutrient requirements. It was spectacular! Just go with it! You’re doing great!

Glad to hear your day went great. You are a few days ahead of me and I’ll use you to pull me through. For some reason, todays fast was tougher than usual. I ended up napping after work as an avoidance mechanism. – Whatever keeps me away from food works. Looking forward to morning shake with ricotta cheese and blueberries.

Hey Sue, glad I can help motivate you to keep going. Fasting days are tough and you did what you had to do to get through it. You are having great success on the program, just stick with it and I know you will be fine – you have a few great communities to support you! BTW, that shake sounds delicious! Keep up the great work, Sue!
