I tried everything... but ended up losing 45lbs with the south west diet.. it was easy, except for the NO drinking the first two weeks.. other than that you just have to be careful what you eat. I did not have to exersise, just changed my eating habits.. I have kept it off for 5 years now....I just don't eat a bunch of crap now! Oh... and stay away from drinking magnums of wine

South West? Or South Beach? South Beach I've heard, and tried. It actually worked pretty well as long as you pay attention to what you're eating and stick with it. It's based off the glycemic index which you end up picking foods that don't cause spikes in your blood sugar. It's not about removing all carbs, just removing the bad ones and moderating the good ones.

Between that and exercise I had myself down to 170lbs on the South Beach diet. Then a whole bunch of life-changing events happened and it threw my entire life around and I gained it all back because I stopped eating smart and stopped exercising altogether.

Now I'm working on my way back to there... slowly but surely.

You can buy the book at Amazon, or at the book store.. it was written by a Cardiologist, originally for his heart patients.. its a lower carb diet, but NOT a no carb diet. A lot of veggies, chicken, fish, and meat, balanced diet, no special food, just good food. The book has recipes, really nothing crazy, just less portions, and more times a day. Check out the book....its pretty easy stuff. It taught me how to eat right again, especially being on the road a lot.
Its just no alcohol for the first two weeks. I started being able to tighten up my belt in 2 weeks, and went from a 38 waist, to a 34 in three months.

I started the Smart For Life Diet in April when I was 310 lbs. I now weigh 240 on my way to 200.

Life is great!

Rough day here. Gonna try and stay as in line as possible. English Dept. social is today immediately after school. Gonna be lots of sweets and other goodies.
Started the day w/ a meal replacement shake, lunch is a chicken breast, and I guess this gathering at school will be supper.
Gonna have to force myself to exercise when I get home. I know I'll be dragging.

I found that another things that helps when I need a quick fix for something to eat is to always have fruit and veggies cut up and available in the fridge. After a while you tend not to go to the fridge as often and when you do it is something natural and good for you.

The key is to make sure that it is cut up or prepared so all you have to do is eat it. I find that it is to easy to hit the "junk" food than the fruit and veggies if they aren't prepared.

I hit the elliptical this morning but almost talked myself out of it!

Hang in there!

Somebody slap me if I don't get in some physical exercise today. Didn't do anything yesterday. Was at school until 6:15pm. When I got home, my family came over to break the bad news in. Didn't feel like doing anything after that. This weekend's gonna be rough as far as eating healthy too. A lot of fast food (White Castle) and whatever my extended family decides to cook while I'm in KY. Temptation will be great.

Today:
Breakfast - protein shake
Lunch - small portion of spaghetti and meatballs
Dinner - unknown as of now

Totally agree Andy; hang in there!! I'm havin' a devil of a time myself..... we're going through IVF this week and having to make several trips out to the Doc's lab in Pasadena and running errands and not home much so we've been eating out and eating terribly ahead of mrsreindeer's bed-rest starting tomorrow (instead of this past Monday, as it turns out). And my Dad's in town staying with us and we had a friend in town on Saturday, so of course, we're having to entertain....ugh....this time of year is always tough. And it won't get better....Christmas next week and parties and New Year's... oh my.

Breakfast = small ham and cheese croissant.. Coffee dark and little sugar...but I deserve it since I kicked butt at the gym last night!


Lunch is a small portion of Ravioli.


Dinner = 3mile run.
