Hey guys, I did a search and found no posts on this diet so I thought I would share my store and success with you guys. First off I've been a long-time competitive fitness oriented person and passionate strength and fat-loss enthusiast.
My first true fat-loss journey began around September of 2006 at the weight of 230lbs. At this point I was your typical unhealthy fat boy. I'd had an excessive eating disorder to COMPLETELY over eat portions. Consuming 6-8000 calories A day, failing at school and an all around disaster. My inspiration was my buddy who had lost 100lbs and was looking fantastic. SO, I decided to change my life and after 8 months of a solid diet and exercise routine I had dropped my weight to 165 and was in the best shape of my life. Back in High School I competed in weight-lifting with a bench of 310-320 , and competed to 3rd place in States (sorry I don't quite remember my Clean & Jerk max).
**Second Introduction (sorry) & The Stillman Diet**
I'm going to cut and paste some of the basic and general idea's of this diet from a web article that I found. Keep in mind, I take everything in life with a grain of salt than decide from there. I've grown with the mentality of "ALL OR NOTHING" in literally every situation I incur. If I'm going to cheat on my diet, I eat enough food to feed a small army. If I am going to lose weight, I do everything in my power to keep to my goal.
THIS DIET IS EXTREME.. I'll say it one more time THIS DIET IS EXTREME. It most definitely is not for everyone. I've done a few minor modifications to The Stillman Diet such as limiting calories and protein as well as veggies eaten, and I am happy with my conclusion.
**The Stillman Diet**
"The Stillman diet is a type of high protein diet devised by Dr. Irwin Maxwell Stillman. Developed sometime in 1965, it is considered to be one of the early forms of high protein and low carbohydrate weight loss diets that became quite popular in the late 60's and towards the 80's. The Stillman diet is also considered as a low fat diet as it maintains quite a strict avoidance of fat in the diet.
One of the notable features of the Stillman diet is that it promotes quick results. The diet is based on consuming protein as part of its weight loss regimen. This type of diet is based on a concept that weight loss can be aided by digestion of the protein, which takes extra effort. The body is known to spend 30 percent more extra calories by digesting protein.
The Stillman diet is also considered a ketogenic diet. It tries to mimic certain features of starvation in the body in order to enable to turn on the burning of fat as fuel. The low carbohydrate aspect of the diet enables this process in the body that leads to a rapid loss of body fat.
**How The Stillman Diet Work?**
The typical Stillman diet consumption of unlimited amounts of protein daily taken from lean meat, eggs, poultry and seafood. The diet prescribes eating six small meals daily instead of three large ones. Foods that are not allowed include bread, fruits, vegetables and sugar.
Along with high protein consumption, dieters should also drink at least eight glasses of water daily. Coffee, tea and diet soda are allowed without limitations. The diet claims that people can lose from as much as 7 to 10 pounds on the first week of the diet and 5 pounds on the succeeding week. "
