Weight Loss for Truckers

I know a lot of drivers are trying to lose weight. This might be an option. The 3 week diet.

Personally, I used this method to loose weight when I first started driving. A variation of this method.

Lately though, I lost using intermittent fasting. There is a debate over which is better. I say ask your diet which is better based on your health and objective.

For those who don't want to do the fasting, this is a very good option.

Watch the video at the link and it describe more about the diet. (I am an affiliate for the program if you decide to get it.)

You don't really need the program if you just do what is common knowledge. Eat more veggies and exercise everyday. Drop the sugar and simple carbs.

But i know it is comfort for many to have a more structured and laid out plan so here you go.
