Moving Beyond the Bodysmart Diet

I finished the 6 weeks of the Bodysmart Diet last week and basically gorged this week! I think just knowing no one was looking at my data anymore meant I ate everything in sight.

However the swim bootcamp really motivated me. It also highlighted how much fitness I have lost, backing up my fitness test from last week.

So today I went through my data and also did some research online.

My new goal is to reduce my fat intake and increase my protein intake. I am looking for a profile that looks like this:

  • 20% Fat
  • 50% Carbohydrates
  • 30% Protein
  • Maximum of 5% Alcohol (minuses from Fat and Protein)

My profile for the  last 6 weeks has looked like this:

  • 36% Fat
  • 48% Carbohydrates
  • 14% Protein
  • 2% Alcohol

I looked at my data in more detail to work out where all the fat was coming from and found it is mainly from processed foods such as:

  • Chocolate
  • Shop bought sandwiches
  • Biscuits
  • Cakes
  • Ice Cream
  • Take away food

I do have quite a few good sources of fat in my diet too, like:

  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Cheese
  • Olives
  • Salmon

I just need to get rid or keep limited the processed fats and keep the good fats.

To do this I am going to go cold turkey on processed foods for the rest of April. From today that is 17 days. I thought this is a good amount of time to go fully cold turkey to get out of some bad habits that are creeping back into my diet, in terms of chocolate and ice cream. Once April is over I will then decide on good quality processed foods like Green and Blacks Chocolate to bring back into my diet as an occasional treat.

My focus is whole foods and good sources of protein and fat. I want to get rid of the crap as it makes me feel crap. I want to treat my body well so it treats me well 🙂

  1. Hi Angie. Loved reading your blog. Just wondering if I should do the body smart diet from Apr 30th. I’ve been wearing my Ki for a few months now. Just wondered if you thought I’d benefit from the diet even though I’ve been wearing the Ki? What’s in the welcome pack? Sorry for the questions! Hope you are well.

    1. Hi Sarah! No problem at all – I love questions. I signed up for the diet to help me get the most from my Ki Fit and start on my goals and purchased both at the same time. I really enjoyed the diet as I did learn a lot and it was great being able to ask the Ki Scientist and other members of the group questions. Where are you on your journey? If you feel you need help then would go for it as it is very personal and tailored to help you work towards your goals. If you want to make sure you are getting the most of of your armband I would go for it too as I looked at things like my sleep in more detail than I would have on my own. I think it really depends what you want to get from it as it is pricey, but I felt it was worth while as I put the effort in to get what I wanted out of it. Plus is didn’t feel like a ‘diet’ it was a learning experience that I am making my normal life. I hope this helps, but please feel free to ask more questions 🙂
