I want to lose five pounds. Not because I need to for health reasons, but because for as long as I can remember, I’ve had a little extra weight that I just can’t seem to drop. Even with a regular running routine, plant-based diet, and all-around healthy lifestyle, those pesky few pounds stick around.
So the question is, how can I lose five pounds without totally changing my life? I’m not interested in a crash diet, and I want to drop the weight in a sustainable, healthy way.
In today’s episode I pose that question to Matt, and together we formulate a plan for how to lose those final few pounds without completely disrupting my life and eating habits.
Here’s just some of what we talk about in this episode:
- Intermittent fasting … what is it?
- Why counting calories (for a few days) might help
- Should I stop drinking beer?
- Reducing oil intake
- Nuts … and why I want to keep them in my diet
