What a Binge Day Looks Like + Update

2 Comments

Have you ever TRIED to make yourself sickly full while on a diet? I do every Saturday, without the intention of actually getting sick. It’s part of the 4 Hour Body Diet, and is the one day of the week you go hay-wire and eat anything and everything you want. It gives your body a nice shock from the strict 6 days of diet, and honestly, it makes those 6 days a lot easier to accomplish. When you binge, the thought of one more cookie, soda or slice of pizza makes you cringe. That’s what you’re going for.

So, Saturdays are my binge day, and this weekend I took photos of EVERYTHING I ate during it. Notice that I started with creamy/sugary/chocolate in the morning, and by night time all I wanted was a nectarine and some clementines.

Update to my weight as well! After 3 weeks, I was almost 10 pounds down pre-binge day (down 9.4!) That is a crazy amount of weight for me within 3 weeks, and I’ve never been hungry, feeling deprived, etc..

What do you think of the 4 Hour Body (Slow Carb) diet? Do you think you would be interested in trying it? If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below and I’ll be sure to answer them!

Now, on to the binge day food:

Normal breakfast to start off - eggs, sausage, peppers and chickpeas

Grapefruit Juice pops. Grapefruit inhibits fat from storing itself to your cells, so Tim Ferriss recommends 6oz before your first binge meal.

  1. I’ve heard of success with this kind of diet, but I guess the concept just seems so strange to me!

    • It is strange! The binge days really throw me off because I think one day it won’t work, and then when I get back on the “normal” days, I continue to lose weight! It goes against every thing you’re taught about a weight-loss diet.

I'd love to hear from you!
