According to the BMI.

I’m in the red zone and I’m at high risk, and I should aim to lose 5% to 10% of body weight over 6 to 12 months.

Reality Check

I know I should lose a few kilos, but I never thought of myself, as being overweight.

But the reality is, I’m fat and lying to myself that I’m not, doesn’t help. I need to loose just under 10 kilos. I start this journey from 85kg to 75kg today.

What’s My System to get there?

What’s below, is my thoughts written down. As I try to make it as simple as possible for me. And hopefully at least 1 other person who reads this.

    1. How do we actually lose weight or human fat, (C55-H104-O6)?
      1. I know the answer to that, eat less and move more. And we lose weight, by breathing.

Eat Less and Move More.

By eating less, my body will be force to dip into the stored energy I carry, to allow me to move more. But by eating less and moving more, I will get hungry more often, right?

Eat Less.

What Happens When We Get Hungry?

  1. Quick video to explain below. Two

The feeling of being hungry. Is a chemical released by the body called Ghrelin.

Ghrelin, is a hormone that travels via the blood system to our brain, telling us to seek out food. What’s interesting about ghrelin is, that it decreases the longer we fast. And it comes in waves.

So when the wave of Ghrelin hits our brain. We have to understand that it will pass. And it will get easier, with each passing wave.

Reality Check

Move More.

Moving more will be in the hands of my coach. Leaving me, 1 less thing to think about. My focus, is on eating less. But how?

Intermittent Fasting

I have tried Intermittent Fasting before, with some success. But I never really went 100% all in. I came close, but close enough sometimes is not good enough.

Yes, I have plenty of excuses. But we all do!

Why have I failed in the past, and what will make this time different?

I normally go too hard, at the start and never follow through. I will try a new approach.

The goal, fast 16 hours in every 24 hours. And the system to get there. Build up to 16 hours, over a 12 month period.

I sleep about 6 to 8 hours. So let’s say, 7 hours. That means I have to fast for an extra, 9 hours per day. I will start with 1 hour at night and 2 hours in the morning. 10 hours total.

My system is, to add an extra 1.5 hours every 3 months. I normally forget about my goals after about 3 months, so I have set 2 reminders. To keep me on track.

In the last video below, is a story of someone who knows how to achieve goals, by using a system.


I will be using Modafinil to help suppress my appetite.
