4 Hour Body Weight-loss Graph Download and Review

The 4 hour body mentions a weight-loss graph - more specifically Phil-Libin-Fat-Loss-Glide-Path(click here to download your own - Please send me a msg if you are interested in a copy).What Phil does is plots rather cleverly his Start Weight and his Goal Weight. He gives himself 2 years to lose the excess pounds. Daily he logs his weight, and he plots it onto the graph.

The aim is to stay in the sweet-spot just between the green line (floor) and below the red ceiling line. If he loses weight too quickly and drops below the green he eats a bit more and cuts back a little on exercise. Slow and steady wins the race. If he notices that he is too close to or over the red line, he adjusts his caloric intake.
