..3 years on and a healthy, happy 72kg!

 

My motivation was to reduce my risk of developing diabetes and to feel physically healthier and more attractive. I wanted to find a reliable, consistent and cheap way to do this without having to endure hunger, take on unsustainable diet or exercise regimes or take unnatural drugs.

Through research and experiment on myself I was amazed to find a very simple and well understood biochemical principle (the insulin response) which when applied to diet (specifically the glycaemic index and glycaemic load of what we eat) has a profound effect on how fat we are and stay. Part of what I found so incredible is that despite the wealth of information in the media and huge array of nominally healthy foods we find in supermarkets this simple piece of information and its overwhelming significance over and above all the other healthy eating messages out there had not gotten through. In fact there are quite contradictory messages and virtually all the convenience food choices (even the ostensibly healthy ones) available to us keep us fat.

Several family members, friends and acquaintances noticed my weight loss and asked how I’d achieved this so I set up this site as
(i) somewhere to refer them to – so they had somewhere to go after they’d forgotten what I told them!
(ii) a record of my findings in the hope that it might benefit the wider community
(iii) an experimental business to educate people on a few basic facts about nutrition and biochemistry whose application to one’s diet alone can have a profound impact on obesity – possibly the most significant epidemic in the ‘developed’ world.

I went from over 92.9kg (205 pounds, 34.7% i.e. 32.2kg fat) to under 66.6kg (147 pounds, 18% i.e. 12kg fat) in 7 months i.e. of the 26.3kg I lost most (20kg) of the weight loss was fat. My muscle reduced a little from 30.1% (28kg) to 39.1% (26kg) however that is a healthy level of loss given I no longer have to haul so much superfluous weight around (which was also putting damaging levels of strain on my joints and tendons and causing other health/quality of life problems).

Of course I should probably include the usual disclaimer that I’m not medically qualified or a nutritionist and that you should see your doctor if you have any concerns that you may have a medical condition affecting your weight or diet before starting to lose weight.

The fact is though that you can forget about worrying that you have a fat gene or low metabolism or are too lazy to spend hours each week exercising. Your body’s designed to gain and lose weight easily to deal with periods of excess and paucity in nature’s bounty of available food and, with a little understanding of how your body works, the very same natural drives you instinctively followed to get to your current weight will get you to any weight you choose to be. In fact you’ll lose weight scarily fast and have to consciously decide not to drop below the weight that’s healthy for you.

Good luck – though you really don’t need it if you read and then follow the handful of tips we have. There’s a shedload of stuff on losing weight – on the net, TV, books and magazines – and a host of companies who’ll claim to help you but I’ve tried to distil the information that helped me into a handful of tips you can read in a few minutes so just start in that section!

All the best,

Nik

Samsung EHS64 earphones

Samsung’s EHS64 earphones are amazing value at well under £4 on Amazon. Though their clarity is not at Sony MH1C let alone Dunu Titan 1 (FiiO EX1) levels (other well recognised sonic bargains I regularly listen to at home that also punch well above their weight) they’re a very enjoyable mildly U-shaped listen and have sufficient detail, frequency balance, transient response and open airy sound to not feel like one is missing out on too much regardless of music genre (not something that can be said of even the once much lauded HiFiMan RE-0 whose limited bass extension means one can completely miss out on bass rhythms). Sound-wise they’re not dissimilar to the venerable Koss Porta Pro (modified with the ‘quarter mod’ that helps lift that headphone’s treble veil) with an energetic but never distracting or aggressively sibilant treble (something the Titan 1 can fall foul of with certain tracks), clear articulate vocals and a tight extended open sounding bass that’s not boomy or resonant – there’s a tiny hole near the driver that probably contributes to the open sound (more natural than the PortaPro’s which exhibits some mid bass ‘bloom’). I often find myself listening to them in preference to my Sennheiser HD600 full size headphones since much less of a faff to use (straight out of my phone, no amplifier needed, can lie down/sleep with them) and keep with you (they’re always in my jacket pocket). I use them with homemade Comply style tips that are just a single 3M yellow foam earplug (about 10p a pair on Amazon in bulk) cut in half lengthways with a small hole drilled through them for the best and most comfortable ear canal seal. Tips can make a big difference to how a particular earphone sounds (seal, ear insertion depth and bore diameter affect frequency response) though the standard silicon tips the earphones come with are pretty compliant and comfortable to begin with and you may be happy sticking with them if they happen to fit your ears well. They even happen to have a phone microphone and volume control! I also use Genelec near field active monitors and their dedicated subwoofer and know how close to natural lifelike sound hifi can get but really think nowadays with careful choice one doesn’t have to spend anything like the fortune one once did to get very close to top class faithful sound and music reproduction – once at a certain minimum level of fidelity (like the Samsung’s) there’s really not that much difference in the emotional experience from the music that more exotic and expensive equipment brings. You can find a fuller review of them against other standard earphones supplied with mobile phones here. They sound good straight out of the packet but like many ear and headphones improve with some ‘burn in’ – just leave them playing music at moderate volume from say a home radio for a day or two.
