A common concern with such low-calorie diets is that you'll quickly regain the weight, but in a small clinical trial recently published in the journal Experimental Biology , after 10 months, only about one in five people regained all the weight they had lost.

My girlfriend can't keep her hands off of my new slimmer waist ;- She is so proud of me and she thinks I look great.
Who would have thought I could eat healthy food that I do not have to prepare that I actually like? I am a married man who needed to lose weight.
