He con­duct­ed an exper­i­ment and showed how his body was trans­formed.

Experiment on yourself

British nutri­tion­ist Andrew Roberts decid­ed to test his weight loss method using his own body. In six months he gained 25 kilo­grams, and then lost 20 in four months.

The first thing Roberts did was stop play­ing sports and began con­sum­ing 5,000 kilo­calo­ries a day — this is 2.5 times more than his usu­al diet. Over six months of the exper­i­ment, the per­cent­age of fat in his body increased from 10 to 27.

Basic ques­tions: what are (kilo)calories and how to count them.

Accord­ing to Roberts, dur­ing the inten­sive “diet” she began to sleep worse, snore and expe­ri­ence back pain. The man also got tired faster and was con­stant­ly in a bad mood. The nutri­tion­ist not­ed that he under­stands peo­ple who begin to eat stress and gain weight as a result: “Most often clients come to me who have expe­ri­enced emo­tion­al trau­ma, which has con­tributed to weight gain.”

Moving Down

After hit­ting the scale, Roberts focused on a plant-based diet and main­tained a calo­rie deficit for the first two months — dur­ing which time he lost more than nine kilo­grams. Then the expert added train­ing: Roberts per­formed strength exer­cis­es three to four times a week and said good­bye to anoth­er 11 kilo­grams.

To achieve a sim­i­lar effect, fit­ness and diet are not enough, says Andrew: “You need to sleep sev­en to nine hours a day and drink enough water — about two to three liters dai­ly.”
