My thoughts

Some people work out and think that they will lose fat in the right areas (If I do sit ups, I’ll get abs) - it’s not that simple.

Same with this diet, the weight number, although lower, could be down to a multitude of things - losing fat (the one you want), but I could well be losing muscle mass.

Also what is an interesting piece of information to find out, is what is my weight after February? Will I put it all back on?

The long and the short of it : “Any diet that puts you in a calorie deficit will help you lose weight”

Does it work? yes, but there are other safer, tried and tested alternatives to lose weight.

But where’s the fun in that? :P

This isn't the end. There is a LONG way to go before ticking off that 'getting buff' bucketlist item. But I'm going in the right way... :)

Thanks for reading :) x
