Welcome to Improvement After Movement (I AM), my name's Marc Edward Jarman, my work is all about health, physical health, financial health and mental health.
Firstly, Banting.com, the very first sustainable weight loss diet ever started, back in 1862. Secondly, I AM Fast Fitness, a simple body weight workout program. Thirdly, Your Spending, an app that shows you a better way to manage your spending. And fourthly, The I AM Charity, a simple little mental health resource.
The True Banting Diet was the very first sustainable weight loss diet started way back in 1862, it's named after my 4 Greats Grandfather William Banting. After a 30 year weight battle, William found a way to lose 1.5 to 2.5kg (3.5 to 5.5lb) each month eating 4 meals a day, until he reached a healthy weight, and never had a weight problem ever again.
William ended up with his name becoming a word in the dictionary, it's still there today, I found William's 1.5 to 2.5kg monthly weight loss (without exercise) modernising his 4 meals a day diet, I think it's brilliant, and completely sustainable.
After finding William Banting's monthly weight loss range of 1.5kg to 2.5kg (3.5lb to 5.5lb) with no exercise, on my way to losing the 15kg (33lb) weight loss you saw above, I thought it would be a good idea to do a 3 month fitness experiment.
I wanted to see what would happen if I did 3 x 20 minute weekly fitness sessions, and what happened was I was lost 4 body fat kg's (8.8lb) and put on 3 lean muscle kg's, (6.6lb) you can check out my DEXA body composition scans and learn more about it below.
Your Spending is a budgeting app I designed and had built over a 12 month period starting in 2018, it's all about managing your spending better.
My turning point weight loss moment was a complete accident, and it was all because of this app, I lost my first 6kg in 4 months as a result of putting a cap on my weekly food spending.
Here's the ratings and reviews from the Australian App Store:
Your Spending is $1.49 AUD to buy, (around $1 USD) it might end up being the best $1.49 you ever spend, App and Play Store links below.
