I’m re-reading the “What to Expect” chapter in Diet Recovery 2. Matt talks about all this there, ending the chapter with:
“I can’t, in good conscience, recommend you do anything other than continue to follow the high metabolism and good physical functioning where it leads, and see it through to the end of the cycle?even if it takes several years. I have a feelings, based on my own experience and that of others like personal trainer Billy Craig who has guided dozens of people through the process of high-calorie weight loss, that persistently maintaining a high metabolic rate and eating abundantly on a regular schedule while doing progress-oriented exercise, getting good sleep, and avoiding the yo-yo rollercoaster like the plague, the body fat will eventually come off.
If it does, great. If it doesn’t, at least you’re healthy and have made a very positive investment in your long-term well-being. One thing is for certain though, no diet or outrageous and unsustainable exercise regimen is going to fix the problem.”
I’m glad I read your posts today, because it led me back to read this encouragement again. Sure, I’d like fast, easy, slim results….but I really do want to be healthy and to enjoy food. So, I’m refocused on what I really want.
