Karin Human Shares Her Progress on The Brain Surgeon’s Diet 16-Week Weight-Loss Challenge

The Brain Surgeon's DietDie Breinchirurg se dieetIn January this year the author of The Brain Surgeon’s Diet invited South Africans of all shapes and sizes to embark on a 16-Week Weight-Loss Challenge.

Karin Human rose to the challenge and has shared her experience of following Adriaan Liebenberg’s life-changing advice on her blog, c’est la vie.

With only #15weeksand5days to go, Human writes about reading The Brain Surgeon’s Diet twice before embarking on the challenge and carrying a notebook with her to document her progress.

The Brain Surgeon’s Diet is also available in Afrikaans as Die Breinchirurg se dieet and aims to help you change the way you think about food and fitness forever.

Read the article:

So I read The Brain Surgeon’s Diet book twice before I started the challenge. I re-read a great deal of it yesterday and again today.

I carry it with me 24/7 and bound to it with an elastic is my new friend, the notebook, in which I strictly follow the little verse “if you bite it, you write it”. By keeping it with me I ensure that I don’t forget because it is so easy to slip a sweet into your mouth or eat an apple and forget.

Even after only 2 days I already know the exact kj when I have a coffee with frothed milk, I know what a spoon of sugar counts as, I even found out something today – pumpkin seeds … yo … that 50g came at quite a high price. So you think when you chew on seeds all day it is ok? Can you see me … I am shaking my head … not ok!
