I reached my lifting goal of a 200kg squat. At this point my brain said “enough” and I entered the dead zone of changing routines. One of my main targets was/is to drop back down to around 15 stone (95-96kg). And so I applied my own principles.
Your system knows EXACTLY what it needs at any given time. The reason most people over eat is simply because their ability to consume food rapidly outstrips the body’s ability to signal them that they are full. There is a twenty minute gap between the time you actually get full and the singal being sent to your brain. This makes it easy to overeat.
Simply by SLOWING down my eating, chewing every mouthful 20-30 times and putting my knife and fork down between each mouthful I gave my body the ability to let me know exactly what it needed and when it had had enough. No dieting. No stress.
I currently weigh 15 ¼ stone and still dropping....
