New You In 22 has been renamed The Metabolic Factor.
Keep reading – everything on this site relates to the new program!
So I’ve completed the 22 days of Jonny Bowden’s New You In 22 weight loss program. Here’s a graph of my results with more information below:
New You In 22 Weight Loss
I’ve lost exactly 9 pounds in 3 weeks on the program. As I said when I started, I was not very overweight, only 15 pounds above my target, so I think that’s a good loss. I’d expect to lose more if I had more weight to lose, because other things being equal, a heavier person will lose more weight on the same food. Our bodies needs more energy to maintain when we’re at a higher weight.
I can feel that I’ve burned fat, too. I feel fitter – although there’s very little exercise involved, just walking, and I didn’t do much more of that than I normally would anyway – and my clothes are looser! I’m starting to think about the next size down 🙂
But of course, individual results will vary, and if you decide to try Jonny Bowden’s new diet program for yourself, you may lose more or less than I did.
How It Went
I enjoyed the program a lot more than I expected, and found it much easier than I expected, too. This was my first attempt at ‘carb cycling’ and I was afraid that I might lose control and binge on the higher carb meals. But that didn’t happen.
I liked being able to plan my higher carb ‘feasts’. It made cravings much easier to control when I could say to myself, “You can have that on Tuesday (or whenever), if you still want it.” Sometimes I did still want whatever it was, and I had it. Other times I had lost interest and chose something else.
I follow a low carb diet most of the time because I find that it gives me a lot more energy and helps me burn fat, but the low carb days here were stricter than I’m used to. Again it was made much easier because I didn’t have to keep it up for more than a few days together, except in the beginning when there is a longer low carb period to kickstart the diet. So this wasn’t a problem either.
How It Compares With Other Diets
It’s real hard to compare with other diets because I’m not in a laboratory situation where I’m testing a ton of different diets at the same time – you can’t do that when you only have one body! When I’ve done low carb dieting with no carb cycling in the past, I’ve lost more in the first 3 weeks, but I’d be more likely to go off the plan. And I was starting from a higher weight.
I did get a little worried when the weight loss wasn’t totally linear because of the higher carb days. I weighed myself every day – which may not be the best plan, but I get a little freaked out if I don’t know what’s happening with my weight when I’m trying a new diet.
So as you can see on the graph there are some days when I gained. But the gains always came off again very fast. And when I think about it, any time I’ve been on a diet there have been those ‘blips’. On other diets it’s because I go off plan for one reason or another. Here it was a part of the plan.
This does make it easier to cope with the gains because you don’t have that feeling that you’ve blown it – which can so easily become an excuse for abandoning the diet completely. It helps to look at the big picture and see that line on the graph going downward overall.
To summarize, I think Jonny Bowden’s New You In 22 weight loss plan is great if you feel that low carbing or paleo-style diets suit your body and tastes, but you want more flexibility. You can use that flexibility for meals out, parties or just knowing that there will be times coming up when you can go ahead and satisfy those cravings, without going off the plan.
Where Do I Go From Here?
I’m still 6 pounds above my target, so I figure I’ll repeat the 3 weeks right away without a break. Maybe one more round of New You In 22 and I’ll be at my goal? Would be nice!
