Lose Weight On Oatmeal Diet

well good morning everybody it is weigh
in Wednesday time for week six already
here in 2020 let’s start off with the
weigh-in right now
all right scale it’s time you know what
to do make me happy make me happy mr.
scale yeah one ninety point six whoo
so one ninety point six just looking at
my notes here I was one ninety four
point four seven days ago so that’s a
net loss of three point eight pounds
again in seven days up here I will flash
all the weeks one two three four five
and six so you can see how it is work
but you’ve been following me you
probably know and so the total fifteen
point four plus three point eight is
nineteen point two nineteen point two
pounds lost here in 2020 doing pretty
good yeah that’s cool I got a special
video for you today this is probably the
most requested thing I have heard in the
comments since I’ve started and that is
that people have asking me even family
friends and family and YouTube have all
been asking me Eric tell me exactly what
you are eating when you are eating it
how you’re working out and exactly how
long you’re working out holy cow
well first of all let me say that the
reason I put this off is because I am
NOT an example I’m not trying to tell
people to do things my way obviously we
are far too early in this weight loss
just you know just over one month here I
don’t want to say do something this way
and then have everybody freak out and
say I’m wrong so let me be clear I
really really want to give you every
little detail of how I have been able to
lose nineteen point four pounds point
four excuse me nineteen point two pounds
so in today’s video I’m gonna share with
you every little detail in case you want
to try what I’m doing or you’re just
curious about how I’m getting the
success that I’m getting I’m getting a
slimmer trend face for this I’m actually
getting my neck back guys my neck I’m
not no neck Eric anymore I’m losing
midsection weight and probably lose
my thighs and my muscles and gained a
new muscles so so something is working
something is definitely working let’s
start with the actual diet itself
because honestly that’s why I get into
the most confusion when I’m talking with
my viewers everybody wants to tell me
that I should be doing this or that
that’s bad or you know switch to this
and do this why don’t you do this why do
you have a cheat day why do you do all
this well you need to understand where
I’m coming from because I am going by
the body for life by Bill Phillips model
I’ve got cassettes I’ve got the book
here it’s a modified version of this but
essentially it’s low-carb it is very
similar to Atkins but again not the same
rules as Atkins
so essentially it’s a body for life
slash Atkins slash now for the last
three weeks an intermittent fasting
technique for weight loss there you go
if you haven’t read this book if you
don’t know what Atkins is and if you
don’t know what intermittent fasting is
please keep your comments and
suggestions for what I should be doing
instead for some for somebody else
because I hate to be rude but this is
working for me and I want to stay doing
exactly what I’m doing right now so the
body for Life program is a 12-week
program which is perfect because that’s
the exact length of time I’m competing
here with James over there at one or
lest a state to lose 30 pounds in 90
days and 19.2 we’re getting there now
we’re not even half done and I’m more
than half lost my my total that I wanted
to lose so Atkins diet if you’re not
familiar with it it is essentially a
very low carb diet for the first two to
three weeks it’s extremely low like 25
grams of carbs or less for the first
three weeks and boy that was rough are
you looking at
any big putts with the butts after that
it raises to 50 that’s that’s where I’m
at right now I’m capping my daily carbs
at 50 carbs under 50 carbs really and my
calories right now are at 1,200 or lower
and so stay tuned because I’m going to
show you exactly what I eat and count my
calories and carbs and show you this
printout of how it works okay and lastly
is the intermittent fasting which I am
now I have now completed three full
weeks of intermittent
and essentially what that means is I
only eat during a six-hour window of
each day and then I fast for 18 hours
sleep included and honestly it has been
one of the most easiest things I have
ever done in my life it is so easy when
I get to the the food section I will
show you my exact schedule but I only
eat for six hours out of the day outside
of those six hours I can drink water
okay let’s start with the food yeah
we’re gonna start with food and then
we’ll do my exercise routine after that
so essentially I’m gonna go through
exactly what happens when I wake up each
day to when I go to bed okay
I generally wake up sometime sometime
between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. okay I
have a cup of coffee in fact between
8:00 a.m. and noon I probably have three
cups of coffee sometimes less but
definitely three cups of coffee coffee
again has no calories and no carbs it is
actually a kind of a very good thing to
have if you’re on a weight-loss it’s
kind of like tea and other vegetable
drinks and stuff like that it is not
going to hurt your weight-loss plan so
copy is okay on the diet that I’m
working right now okay but I don’t eat
until 2 or 3 p.m. every single day every
single day I have not eaten today okay
for the purposes of this video and to
make everything clear in a 6 hour time
window we’re gonna call it 3:00 p.m.
okay so 3:00 p.m. is the first time I
can eat at 3:00 p.m. I eat three
scrambled eggs no I do not remove the
yolk and just do egg whites because I
know everybody said you’re supposed to
do that I don’t do it that’s great if
you do don’t worry about me guys
I am losing weight it’s working for me
so three eggs for breakfast or late
lunch at 3:00 p.m.
3 eggs totals 234 calories and 1.7 grams
of carbs okay
okay fast-forward two hours and it’s
time for a snack and per the body for
life diet we’re gonna be eating fist
sized portions essentially so this tells
us one of them at 5:00 p.m. I drink an
Atkins dark chocolate Royale protein
drink these things are absolutely
delicious by the way they really satisfy
hunger cravings and they are 160
calories 2 grams of carbs at 5 p.m. at 6
p.m. it is time for meal number 3
essentially but that is going to be an
assorted frozen
ken’s approved meal and again I know we
can go on and on about how bad frozen
food is for you now it’s processed blah
blah blah I am sticking into this diet
lots of people are sticking to this diet
and it’s working for them so you can
judge me all you want these things are
freaking delicious here’s the lasagna I
also do the chicken moderator there’s a
fired pizza in there and there’s chicken
and broccoli this guy right here 400
calories six grams of net carbs okay
fast forward an hour later 7:00 p.m.
time for a snack
two large celery sticks with one
tablespoon of peanut butter smeared on
top of both of them for the celery
sticks 16 calories 1 gram of carbs for
the tablespoon of peanut butter 85
calories and 3 grams of carbs but for
someone who has a difficult time eating
veggies the peanut butter really does
help me get my celery and celery is a
good low carb low carb enough vegetable
and now fast-forward to 8 p.m. at night
ok 8 p.m. I only have one hour left to
eat this is it right now we eat one of
those prep meals that I make once a week
I make 6 to 7 small portions of a meat
and a veggie usually it’s going to be a
boneless chicken breast and then it’s
going to be a vegetable of choice I
generally go through broccoli carrot
steamed carrots and corn corn is
probably the worst one I know is higher
in carbs and it has more calories it’s
also a more starchy vegetable and it’s
funny that so many people could help me
on that say it’s such a bad for you
vegetable it’s like wait a minute now
can we go back to like what my life was
like in seven years of YouTube Pizza
tater tots chimichanga okay corn is good
corn is a is a good upgrade it may not
be the healthiest vegetable but it’s a
good upgrade for me alright so I either
bake or grill the chicken breast i
seasoned it a little bit and then i
steamed my vegetables put those into
trays put them into the refrigerator so
all i’ve got to do is nuke them for
three minutes at 8 p.m. at night and
that’s my last meal 3 ounces of chicken
breast is 102 calories and zero carbs
one cup of corn is a hundred and
eighty-five calories and 38
Bam’s of cards well there’s my barely
under fifty card limit for the day right
there in the corn I’m using corn for an
example because one that’s what I’m
eating this week for veggies but also
that is the highest calorie and carb
count of the three so I want to have the
top end of this usually other weeks
carbs and calories are going to be low
with that one vegetable swapped for
either carrots or broccoli or
cauliflower too just so you know okay
but at the end of this what are we
looking at all of this food in one day
in just six hours 1182 calories and
forty nine point seven grams of carbs we
did it
we’re under fifty right now still
obviously I’m also still drinking my
water at least a gallon a day most of
that three-quarters of that gallon is
consumed during my high intense workouts
either cardio or strength training when
I drink over a gallon a day of water we
also have to talk about one other thing
and that is from last week when I
introduced the Coke Zero sugar and I
talked about no calories no sugar no
carbs all this it tastes delicious
although it’s not a fuel you know it’s
not something I need it was just
something extra and holy cow did you
guys look at the comments we’re up over
1400 comments half of those are people
screaming at me in all caps Coke Zero
has aspartame aspartame will kill you
it’ll stunt your weight loss it’ll give
you cancer Eric what are you doing
drinking aspartame Eric holy cow did I
not see that coming you guys yelled at
me so much all you health nuts that are
going crazy over the aspartame in a Coke
Zero what about this Powerade zero sugar
you know I’ve been showing this this I
showed right after the Coke you’ve been
watching me drink these all January
every single day I’m drinking what same
exact amount of aspartame in this as a
Coke Zero not one person not one single
person since I started this has had a
problem with this or told me about
aspartame in this how come why is Coke
bad and this is fine
turns out this isn’t fine I’m done with
Coke Zero I’m done with any artificial
sugars because you guys got me looking I
started doing some research on aspartame
myself and holy cow
it is terrible it is scientifically
clinically proven to stunt your
weight-loss progress and it can cause
cancer are you kidding me no that’s the
last one I have it’s going in the
garbage after this day we’re going back
to water okay in fact it would probably
be better just to drink a normal coke at
this point then to have that chemical
thank you guys for letting me know that
was the first time I’ve ever heard of
that chemical or what it meant but you
guys were so loud about it that I had to
look into it again how come nobody cares
about the Powerade it’s the same exact
amount of aspartame in that as the coke
and nobody freaked out like the coke so
we’re back to water only right now
except for my cheat day I didn’t mention
that about the body for life so we need
to get into that that this this calorie
intake this 1182 calories 49.7 carbs
that is six days out of the week Friday
is my cheat day whether you like it or
not I don’t care that stupid cop are you
kidding me the body for life books give
you the cheat day gives me that cheat
day and I love my cheat day I absolutely
need it if this is going to be a new
lifestyle that continues for years and
years and years I like the feeling of
knowing if I want one day out of the
week I can eat whatever I want a bucket
of popcorn ribs all the barbecue for
five people I mean and everybody’s
telling me that it’s killing my diet and
it’s a terrible idea it’s like again
look you’re not reading the same book I
am are you looking at my weight loss
because I’m doing pretty good with my
weight loss so it can’t be that bad guys
although obviously I’m going to hit a
plateau here and it’s probably gonna
happen soon probably somewhere in the
180s I’m gonna hit a plateau it’s gonna
be a lot more difficult to lose pounds
but anyway there we go I want to point
out one more thing at least according to
the US Department of Health the average
adult male is supposed to be eating
between 2,000 and 3,000 calories a day
okay uh and I eat 1182 I am
significantly under the average male
calorie intake and then also according
to the US Department of Health from
adult women it’s 1,600 to 2,400 calories
a day as for carbs by that same census
is if your based on the 2,000 calorie
diet you’re supposed to consume 250 to
325 grams of carbs a day and I’m under
50 so my numbers are significantly lower
than the national average for a for
adults but but also you know the idea
behind losing weight is to consume less
calories than you’re burning throughout
the day okay that’s the major formula
with losing weight so lower intake
higher burning of calories that’s going
to be a good thing oh hey buddy any
questions about what I’m actually eating
those six days out of the week put them
in the comments below I will try to
answer your questions I don’t get tired
of the foods in fact I love eggs I never
get tired of eggs I have done salmon
instead of the chicken one time and oh
my gosh I burnt it it must have been
just the bottom got too moist and then
got really really crispy
I need if I’m gonna do salmon again it’s
a lot more expensive than boneless
chicken breast but I’m gonna have to
find a way to cook it above like get a
fish pan or something to bake it in or
something or I could grill it something
like that but yeah the chicken doesn’t
bother me today it is just so convenient
too when I get that hungry at 8 p.m.
open the fridge throw it the microwave
and eat the darn thing you know it’s
working for me this is it’s a lot better
for me it makes us I don’t to think
about it each night what I’m gonna eat
and I am doing super super well with
keeping my calories under 1,200 a day ok
I think it is time to talk about cardio
exercise weight training resistance
training and all that the program I’m
going through is the one that’s listed
in the body for life book ok so what I’m
doing is I’m doing for resistance
training strength training segments four
times a week okay
so four days a week
strength training on the body boss
people keep asking me about this thing I
keep not wanting to endorse it because
it’s too early but this is what it is
the body boss 2.0 this platform that
opens up and then you use resistance
bands in fact in this pouch is where the
bar is that’s unscrews and the arm
things and all the band’s resistance
bands and everything I don’t want to
endorse it yet it is working for me I
will let you know it is definitely
working in the small space to have a
very very very small form-factor mobile
gym in a sense however if I put the link
to this on Amazon like everything else I
put a link for it’ll disappear and be
sold out in a couple hours by tonight
and then all of you will just be angry
in the comments about Eric your stupid
links broken every single day I updated
it’s like it’s not really my full guys I
can’t control amazon’s inventory so the
best I can do is give you the product
name and information and then you can go
find where it’s available for sale maybe
even used so body boss 2.0 system I paid
about 170 on Amazon for it so you should
be in that ballpark if you’re interested
in it you probably see me use it and
enjoy it and you’ve seen that I’ve been
losing some weight so that’s a good
thing so the schedule I always do my
workouts before my first meal always I
do not do night workouts so I work out
on an empty stomach just coffee and
water essentially but always before 2:00
p.m. do I do my workouts and cardio so
Monday day one on the body bar system
alright so Monday is upper body and
chest day we are gonna start out with
chest presses three reps of 20 on the
chest press and then tricep kickbacks
again three reps of 20 on those then we
do flies again 23 times then put on the
wristbands and we’re gonna do boxing 20
on each arm three times
next is side lateral raises 20 of those
three times rear delt flies 23 times
I cept curls 23 times
and lastly tricep extensions 20 of those
three times that completes Monday’s
upper body and chest workout Tuesday is
leg day and we start with squats 20 of
them three times put the band on my
ankle and we’re gonna do kickbacks on
each leg 10 on each leg three times then
keep the ankle straps on for side
abductions gonna do 20 on each leg three
times reverse lunges 10 on each side
three times and then close out Tuesday’s
workout with planks gonna do three of
them for 60 seconds of peace that wraps
up Tuesdays late day skip ahead to
Thursday my favorite day of the week abs
and core day we will start with the
woodchopper on each side 23 times I do a
modified version of the app twist
I do 20 on each side three times then on
two oblique crunches 20 on each side
three times straight arm pull downs 23
times and lastly for Thursday resistance
ab crunches 100 of them in a row and
then we’re done for Thursday and then
Friday is shoulders and traps day and I
start with the upright row 20 of these
three times then on two front raises 20
of these three times onto overhead
presses 23 times shoulder shrugs 20 of
these three times put the wrist bands
back on and do uppercuts 20 on each arm
three times
and then finally finishing up Friday
with lat pull-downs 20 of them three
times and that will complete shoulders
and traps what about Wednesday Saturday
and Sunday those are cardio days
those are cardio days as you’ve seen I
have actually got a version of an
elliptical it’s not really an elliptical
as many people mentioned it actually
looks more like the old gazelle thing
that was on an infomercial or something
like that and it doesn’t have any
resistance to it so if I want to burn
more calories and get a higher beats per
minute rate I actually have to go faster
right now I don’t like it I would not
recommend it sunny sunny health is a
good company they do have some other
small form-factor ellipticals with the
actual pedals and the gears in the back
I may upgrade to that later but I do
have this in here so I have no excuse I
also like to jog and walk going outside
and and jogging for two minutes and then
walking for 30 seconds and keeping that
up and again for the cardio for me is
keeping my my beats per minute at 150 or
over I don’t want it to creep down so
I’m trying to keep the heart rate going
for the entire 30 minutes of cardio yes
30 minutes of cardio no matter what even
if my watch health rings are telling me
that I’ve already completed a ring I
still do 30 full minutes of extra cardio
on top of my resting active calories
burn so the elliptical jogging and
I don’t do walking for exercise but
walking does help me get more calories
burned obviously throughout the day just
where I’m filming or how I’m conducting
my day but when I’m in a resort or
something like I’m not right this second
actually they usually have a fitness
room at Thousand Trails encore and
campgrounds and here they have two
different ellipticals they also have a
treadmill and I think they have a
bicycle I didn’t use it yet but those
are some other options and like I said
just got to do 30 minutes of 150 beats
per minute
cardio then sweat my butt off I’m
telling you what okay so again cardio is
Wednesday Saturday and Sunday I work out
seven days a week that’s my workout
schedule there have been a couple
changes along the way as you’ve been
following me these six weeks I have been
making changes so I’m not afraid to make
changes the intermittent fasting thing
the the soda and the aspartame and
Powerade obviously
because I want to give my body the best
chance but I’m no longer thinking about
this it’s just a three month thing
obviously this is a lifelong thing and
obviously I’m not going to be where I
want to be physically and emotionally in
just three months however this was the
absolute jump started I need it and I’ve
got to give props to James one less
estate over there he’s changed my life
and James hopefully you’re watching this
man if it wasn’t for you right now I
would still be a miserable 38 year old
man right now and I thank you so much
for inviting the end of this competition
with you you are looking fantastic but
I’m so jealous I know you’ve been
working on this for years so I know that
I cannot reverse 19 years of bad health
and eating in just three months I’m
gonna give it at least two years like
you’re given I can’t wait to see how the
results are gonna be for me too but man
this is fun I hope I beat you this week
because that’s another big number you
know last week we were neck-and-neck
I think he overall from January 1st he
had 15 point something he had beat me by
point two pounds at that point so
nineteen point two pounds lost for
nomadic fanatic here on week six
did I win I gotta wait and find out I
haven’t seen James video yet anyways got
lots more fun still waiting on my bank
card still getting the Texas guys doing
what I can do smile on laughs and having
a good time that’s the fun camping
coming up again I’ll see you on Friday
take care guys bye-bye

  1. the processed frozen foods are actually better for you especially frozen vegetables then if you bought a bunch of fresh vegetables and foods and kept it in your fridge because freezing the foods stops the processing and holds the nutrition in the food

  2. I said your recliners were too big because you are getting lost in them!!
    I have my self set up for the coming week as you listed time spans. Looking to break my stall!!

  3. Isn't funny how people are always full of suggestions when what we need is just support. When I was doing the curves complete program and losing weight every week I posted on Facebook asking for support because before I'd always self sabotaged myself. First comments were people telling what I should be doing. I was so determined at the time that it wouldn't have matter what they said. Then about 2 years ago I stopped caring. Long story I wouldn't go into, but I've gained back more then I lost. I failed the plan though it didn't fail me. I let other people more important than myself that shouldn't have been. I did tons of research too…and btw I wanted to say something about the aspartame when it was the poweraide but I figured you'd figure it out without my pounding you about it. You're doing awesome. What you are doing is working…and personally I think maybe your plateau won't be as soon or bad because you are giving yourself that cheat day. PS I joined a gym, but I can't get myself to go back to workout 😔. I'm hoping the more I watch your success the more I'll get that fire again to lose weight again. I know it'll be much harder at my age but I need to try.

  4. Hi Eric and Jax cool work out routine the leg lounges look hard. Have you try jogging for cardio or burpees they work Good. Do you do any kind of push ups they work to but try the incline push up. I like doing "bar work" that means pull ups and dips.
