Can't wait to try Insanity!
Can't wait to try Insanity!
insanity waist sprinting apple shaped body

Hello! The problem I would like to discuss today is my skinny fat shaped body/runner's belly is what I call it.

So, I've already lost 15 pounds from my start out weight (130 lbs). I noticed that I am one of those unfortunate souls who lose fat rapidly from everywhere, but my gut wouldn't budge that quickly (yes, I am an apple-shaped body type). It's good to know that I've lost 2 inches around my waist, and I guess 2+ inches from everywhere else. And all of that was because I became a sprinter back in April 2012, and I still am. I work with free weights (5 - 10 lbs) 3 times a week & sprint 4 times a week.

I'm hoping that Insanity can help me with this problem. I would get P90x, but it looks like I have to buy a lot of equipment. I heard with Insanity, you work with your own weight, AND it's already cardio itself. So, I decided, why not? emoticon


How my diet is so far:

Sometimes I do the yo-yo diet (one day I'll take in 1500 cals, then 1300 cals). I'm supposed to eat 1800 if I want to keep my weight, but clearly I'm trying to shed off fat.

I try to limit the amount of carb intake, but of course, my diet consists of complex carbs - sweet potatoes, oatmeal, whole wheat bread, brown rice, etc.

I make sure most of my protein comes from lean meat - I most often eat chicken or fish meat. I do also drink whey protein shakes after I train.

I eat good fats that come from avocados (taken in moderation of course) & the omega fats in the fish meat I consume.

And finally, I drink 10 glasses of water a day.

Any tips and advice would be really helpful! Thank you for your time emoticon

Insanity is definitely more cardio! It's a tough program but you can do it! Insanity comes with a meal plan that is pretty easy to determine your calorie needs and to follow. Depending on your age/weight/activity it will give you a guide for your calorie intake. You might be surprised that you'll have to increase your calories to have the energy to get through the workouts!

If you have any other questions or need support/motivation, I've started up thread for Insanity and Asylum. Feel free to join in.

Good Luck!!
