Over the last 13 weeks I’ve lost about 10 pounds (down from 198 to 188 lbs).
So a little less than a pound per week (0.77 pounds on average).
Which is extremely slow if you go by internet standards.
But here’s the thing:
- I wasn’t trying to rush the process. I’m not competing for anything or with anyone. I just wanted to lose some flab.
- During the course of the 15 weeks, I was never hungry, craved junk, or even really felt like I was dieting. Dieting was effortless.
And mind you, every time I cut weight, the process is relatively easy.
But this time it was so easy, I practically forgot I was dieting.
And this had nothing to do with supplements, meal frequency, or even my workout routine.
This all had to do with one tiny tweak I made to my diet.
I call it the Infinity Fruit Hack (because that sounds cool).
What is the Infinity Fruit Hack?
The Infinity Fruit Hack (IFH) is where you eat as many raw fruits as you want, every day, without tracking calories.
How to use the IFH
Here is the super technical, 2-step plan to using the IFH today:
1. Follow your diet like you normally would.*
This is NOT a fruit only diet. You still follow a normal diet plan.
2. Eat as much fruit as you want on top of your diet.
*For a step-by-step guide on how to setup an effective diet, check out Superhero Shredding 2.0.
Why you should use the IFH if you’re struggling to lose weight
1. Raw fruits are low in calories
Compare a bag of chips (120 calories) to 120 calories worth of blueberries.
The difference in the sheer amount of food you get a crazy.
2. They’re nutritious
I’m not going to go into details here.
Hopefully you don’t need an explanation for why fruits are nutritious.
3. You stay full and satisfied
Not only are fruits low in calories, but they fill you up.
No one eats a bag of chips and says, “Wow that filled me up so much.”
You can get pretty full after eating a few apples.
4. A huge sense of freedom
I can’t tell you how liberating it is to be able to eat as much fruit as you want and not think about the calories.
It’s pretty fucking awesome.
5. Kill your bad eating habits
I’m not saying eating as much fruit as you want is all of a sudden going to kill your cravings for double pepperoni pizza.
But it might help if you’re the type of person to eat out of boredom or stress.
If you’re the type of person who needs to eat something while watching Netflix, you know, just because….then the IFH will change your life.
Won’t overeating fruits cause you to gain weight
“Dude, I’m so fat now because I ate too many strawberries.”
Said no fucking human ever.
Will not tracking your fruit intake slow down weight loss?
Yes, most likely.
That’s the reason I was losing less than one pound per week.
But if you’re in this for the long run (which I fucking hope you are), and don’t try to pull off any stupid 14 day transformations, then give the IFH a shot.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
You have bigger problems than eating too much fruit
People are overweight because they eat too much crap.
No one disagrees with that.
If you want to start eating healthy, and transform your body, then you need to establish some healthy, baseline habits:
- Getting enough sleep
- Drinking enough water
- Not drink 6 beers per night
- Eating well-balanced meals
- Eating enough fruits and veggies
You know, shit a 3rd grader would understand.
If you’re not doing something as simple as drinking enough water or limiting your booze intake, then I can’t help you.
Some of you might criticize me for telling you to eat unlimited fruits without tracking calories.
But if you’ve been eating 4000 calories worth of chicken nuggets and pizza per day, it’s pretty much impossible to get anywhere near that amount with fruits.
I mean, you could try, but you’ll likely vomit and pass out.
And in the end, it’s not about binging on fruit till you want to puke.
It’s about replacing destructive eating habits with something, um, less destructive (i.e. eating fruit).
The types of fruits you should be eating
Here are my favorite fruits to eat following the IFH:
Avoid starchy fruits like bananas. Nothing wrong with these glorious yellow, penis shaped fruits. But If you do eat them, track the calories.
Don’t worry about the calories in fruits
Yes I know most people who track macros will tell you to log every bit of food you eat, including fruits.
But I say fuck it.
If you’re still hesitant about not tracking the calories from fruits, remember this: Ain’t no motherfucker has ever gotten fat from eating too many apples.
