Health Sprint Nov 2016

I’m going on a 5 week health sprint from 31 October to 2 December. I’m also doing my Vitality Health test on that last Friday.

I’ve written a fairly short Health Guide that explains the protocol I’m following.

We have 8 people in the current testing group. Feel free to join in and help test, or suggest improvements.


I’m aiming for a 12kg transformation: fat lost + muscle gained, which I think is a good target for 5 weeks.

9kg fat loss, 3kg muscle gain.

Starting off at 90kg, 20.7% body fat, 18.8kg fat mass, 41.7kg muscle mass.

Aiming for 82kg, 9% body fat, 9.8kg fat mass, 44.7kg muscle mass.

Single digit body fat, in 5 weeks? Let’s see.

Testing the protocol

The goal of this experiment is to see if a few friends can get into this diet – get keto/fat adapted – make their brains run without glucose as primary fuel – and see if they can lose a healthy dose of body fat in five weeks.

Key things to test:

  • Is this a simple enough recipe / protocol to follow?
  • Are people crazy enough to do this stuff?
  • Can they stick to it for more than one 3 month cycle?
  • Can they get through the glucose withdrawal phase?
  • How do males and female experiences differ.
  • Can they get really good body transformation results?

Happy health hacking, crazy kids.
