That sounds harder than just cutting out carbs and working out 3 times a week. But well done your weight loss and definition.I found out losing weight is a simple addition/subtraction problem that takes weeks and even months to solve. It mostly requires self discipline and willingness to stick to the plan regardless of what your body is telling you.
I fasted every other day for 2 months in the summer time while working out every single day. I only ate one meal a day including the days I wasn't fasting but I pretty much ate whatever I wanted. Workouts included cardio and high intensity interval strength training that were over an hour long each day. It was probably the hardest thing I've ever done in my life but the results were so good. I lost about 18lbs and last time I weighed myself (last week) I was 184lb with me being 6ft tall. I lost a lot of fat but also gained a ridiculous amount of muscle and I see my six pack already forming. I gave up cause of school but I highly suggest doing what I did for extreme results. I'm not gonna lie though, it really sucked and requires 100% commitment so tread carefully.
I have addressed those points in the above post. I have tried this diet several times lasting more then a month and got incredibly ill from it. The losses you see are just water weight up to 5KG of it depending on your size. (could be more if your bigger).They're just not following their own advice. This diet works and I've seen it with my own eyes.
My friend lost 111lbs on this diet so it's not just water weight and he doesn't even exercise.I have addressed those points in the above post.

No one that goes on this diet comes out healthy or looses significant amount of weight or even manages to keep that weight of them. I dropped a whopping 60 pounds easily and keep that weight off while continuing to drop a pound a week until I began to have more nuts/beans to stop any further drops.
It's on a strictly no oil, no diary, no meat diet initially until you get to your desired weight, then you can have meat as a luxury item (once every week or month) rather then having it daily.
It's a starch based diet at the core consisting of barley, rice, potatoes, sweet corn,beans, lentils or other grain or legumes (starch), 80% of your daily meal should be composed of starch with the other 20% being any fruits or vegetables.
This is all natural food that is unprocessed that humanity has been eating since civilisations began for 20.000 until the turn of this century, this is the healthy, stable, optimum way to loose weight and keep it off, it's what people back home eat.
Every time I examined the diets of these people with a fine tooth comb I found out they weren't really on a low carb diet, it was simply a delusion.My friend lost 111lbs on this diet so it's not just water weight and he doesn't even exercise.
You diet sounds easy enough though. I might go on it if this one is too hard.
Intermittent fasting sounds like the best one out of all these diets. I gain weight with starchy food but with not with chicken or lamb etc. Whenever I eat vegetables with chicken, lamb or fish for a week I lose weight rapidly. If I ate cambuulo or misir for a week I would gain like 3lbs that week.Every time I examined the diets of these people with a fine tooth comb I found out they weren't really on a low carb diet, it was simply a delusion.
There is a famous 400 pound dude that went on a juice fast for 8 months and lost 220 pounds, this works because he was in a legit ketosis mode all along (basically famine) but keep in mind he is not consuming any fat (like the low card diet suggests which would have balanced everything out)
What he went through is what millions went through in famine, the fatter you are the longer you can survive because you have more fat as fuel. However calorie restrictions doesn't work, if that guy decided to eat 1 sandwich a day or meat, the hunger pangs would be so intense his body will force him to quit after a couple of weeks because it will f*ck up the chemistry (not going to burn fat while eating fat)
The people that lost such weights are usually in the juice fast groups like the above in which case it's not a diet at all (famine) and your body after a week begins to adapt to this and it become easy, sometimes these people did the less severe one and fasted long hours like we do during summer Ramadan having 1 big meal, many people do this without even knowing and you will loose weight regardless what junk you eat because your in a true ketosis state that is not interrupted with fat.
The third one is a lot of them engage in intermittent fasting sometimes without even knowing, again if you deprive your body of food for anywhere between 14-21 hours you loose ridiculous weight regardless what junk food you eat.
I also find with many of them their diets are very low in fat, they consume lots of protein mostly plant based (beans) which is loaded with starch that stops you from feeling hungry, they also have no diary because of the carbs (which is the greatest cause of obesity because of the fat and hormone injections), they avoid lots of oils like in suugo/pancakes and other trans-fats etc.
All these elements combine somewhat in those people from experience but again none of this is truly low carb diet which advocates high fat/medium protein/low carb, many of them carb up with starch before exercise (the best fuel) which they belief they are burning off anyway which they don't, which is really cheating!
Do you add oil to your cambuulo or dairy ? like the Somali's like to do? or cook in them? because any fat like that causes lots of weight gain, the culprit is not the beans but the oil/dairyIntermittent fasting sounds like the best one out of all these diets.
