However, I now give myself every Saturday as a cheat day. I believe that this cheat day is important for a number of reasons. By cheating one day and spiking the number of calories you consume, it will keep your metabolism from doing this — and allow you to maintain your high metabolic rate throughout the week.
Personally, I find the cheat day important because it gives you something to look forward to. With the diet comes a lot of cravings, especially in the beginning. I would make a little note of anything that I was craving and made sure I went out and bought it Saturday morning.
For example, this is what my first cheat day looked like:. Even typing that out makes me a bit sick to my stomach. In fact, thinking back it was at least Thursday before I made a note of anything for the next cheat day.
What I explained above was how I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. The above method works like a charm and I feel is a great way to lose some extra weight. If you are serious about losing weight and changing your lifestyle and willing to put in a little bit of effort to make amazing changes, then I do think you should check out the fat loss factor program. It is cheaper than what we used to spend ordering pizza every few days. As a woman, I wish I could be as successful as you i am following about the same diet but i am not seeing the same results.
The above diet does work. The thing about this particular diet is that you need to be pretty strict with managing blood sugar levels in order to see the type of results in the pounds per week range. Hi Dave, I just read your email. All I want to say is; Keep trying. And btw, your measurements are fine. Just give yourself so time. Good luck with the basketball! Im 14 and trying to lose weight to look good for school im going in 8th grade im trying and i got 2 weeks to lose i want to lose 20 pounds can u plz email me and help me.
You are only 13, and that means that your body will have different needs. Hi Rachel — we do, yes. Optimizing blood sugar levels will have the same effect in women as in men — but both put on and lose weight in the exact same way.
Hi Ashley, I have lost weight using a very similar diet to the low carb one mentioned here. However, my diet was even more strict i. I am relatively small already but found the only way to loose any of the extra weight was to be extremely low carb.
I have heard some researchers say it is because of the pill that this happens i. I am also 14 and am looking to lose weight.
I am looking for a weight loss support partner that could support me as i support them. If your interested email me at kerribearvt yahoo. Hey Adam, I am 37years old my height is 5ft 3 inches and my weight is 64 kg I want to reduce 10kg weight I want to ask you that what kind of vegetables can we eat in this diet?.

Thank you for offering a simple diet plan and sharing your results. I have been on a personal journey to lose weight and have been unsuccessful for many years. I am making a 2 week commitment to stick to the diet plan you have outlined. My biggest problem is night time eating and very low self-esteem. I am looking forward to starting this. Any suggestions for me? Hey, im 17 and have been struggling with my weight since i was a kid. I woke up this morning, put on a dress that suddenly got skinny on me: Hey, i am 14 years old and weigh like most of my friends difference is im fat and they are muscle..

Adam I read about your weight loss and plan and its giving me hope to change. I recently am undergoing a lot of change internally and externally adjusting to living alone , and a demanding new job so I want a new me by the end of this month too — physically.
I will try this new way of eating for 2 weeks, and keep a log of my progress and what I am eating along with the strength training. Question- I didnt see much in the way of cardio, did you do any in the first 2 weeks? What do I have to drink an eat daily. Hi Martine — we just recently published a step-by-step guide book that is now available on Amazon. You can checkout the link in the sidebar above or at the bottom of this post.
Pls advice me on what to do cos it makes me really unhappy. Hi Bella, If you wanted to provide a detail of the types and frequency of exercises you are doing along with what your typical daily diet looks like I should be able to comment a bit better.
Hey Rocco — thanks for your comment. What does your diet consist of now and are you willing to make some changes? I like this site and can add one recommendation: Do small exercises in case if sweet crave becomes unbearable.
Excess of proteins can actually cause extra hunger. I reduced proteins in my meals to the minimum replaced it by beans. Changing life for better can be the best way to go. You can checkout this article on webMD:. I have less than 20 lbs that I need to lose before I get a flat stomach to start working on my abs.
What kind of exercise should I be doing? Anyways, summer is around the corner and I hope we can both move into it feeling confident that our hard work has paid off! Thanks for the comment. Do you have any sort of exercise already in your lifestyle or day-to-day life?
Or at least check out this post:. Bottom line it works, whether you have a lot of weight to lose, or just a little. Best of luck, Jason. What would you suggest? You can find some decent exercises with it on youtube. This has been an incredible part of our routine, and even though we do go to the gym to do it, we could just as easily do it from home.
I would suggest a LB kettlebell to start and do some 2 handed swings. Hi Adam, I have one concern about eating eggs everyday and the cholesterol. I have high blood pressure, what would you recommend??
I come from a family of obese, and myself i am very overweight. Not as active as i should be. I also have a family of bad hearts on both sides. My mother had a heart attack at age 44, my dad passed away from heart attack at age 55, my younger sister had a heart attack at age So far i only have high blood pressure, we also have diabetes in our family. Please help me loose this weight, any suggestions??? Definitely consult with a physician before acting on any of this advice, or any advice found online for that matter.
That said, there have been a lot of case studies of people with high cholesterol using the above diet and still lowering the levels. I usually mix this in pretty often. You can buy it here affiliate link: I have been trying to lose 20 pounds for 3 months now and have only lost about 5 pounds. Whenever I lose weight I always end up gaining it right back.
I eat healthy, I bike, run, or do step aerobics for 6 times a week for the past 3 months, and lost only 5 pounds… Help! It sounds like you are in healthy weight range. I think that you probably look great. The thin obsession is not always the healthy way. All I am saying it that weight is not overweight for hardly anyone unless they are 4 foot 8 or under.
Let me know what your meals look like on a daily basis. Have you considered targeting big muscle groups with some resistance workouts as well?
It would help if you could describe a typical day as far as your existing eating habits go in order to best understand everything — feel free to use the form on the contact page if you want to connect directly.
The eBook we have there also goes into much more detail. I especially liked the meal and snack examples for slow carb eaters. I have a video on YouTube about my journey, think i had 60, hits about when the book first came out. Loved the cheat day. It does work but no fruit and sugar were hard. I will admit I never got sick, my immune system was top notch and I looked great but it still tough. I will likely try it again, to get down to that weight again and then try to maintain.
Hey Jack — thanks for the comment. It certainly is effective. Thanks for sharing useful information. Overweight is serious consideration for health. A healthy diet, moderate exercise will give you amazing results in two short weeks. I have been following the slow-carb diet for nearly 3 weeks with no significant weight loss. I will admit I have made a few tweaks to fit my lifestyle. I go to the gym at 5: I then eat breakfast — eggs, black beans and spinach at Lunch is either a salad with beans or slice of deli turkey or chili.
I have not eaten any grains, sweets etc… I do use milk in my coffee instead of heavy cream. Why is heavy cream a better choice? I do have a glass of red wine at night and an occasional serving of sugar free gelatin. I take a spin class days a week and run 20 miles per week as I am training for a Ragnar Relay. Especially lower sugar field berries. What is your supper like? Also — try to choose a glass of dry red. Perhaps try cutting that out all together to see how that effects things.
It sounds like your goal right now is the Ragnar Relay. Getting your body ready for that AND losing weight might be a challenge. Adam thank you for the feedback. I will certainly switch to cream and see if that helps and maybe eliminate the wine.
It is a dry red-pinor noir. Dinner is usually fish, chicken or pork with veggies. I do not always eat beans or lentils with dinner but work them in when I can.
It is a challenge to cook for myself and then my husband and kids. I agree training is my main focus right now. I guess I would just like to see some movement on the scale to keep me motivated. I have always struggled with my weight and really want to make some life changes so I feel good in my skin. You may see more movement in these areas than on the scale. Hey Adam im 13 years old and weighing in at I want to be in 3 months before my graduation. I dont know if what I am doing is enough..
My morning routine- 5: Being 13 your body is still developing quite a bit. You may want to reach out to a local registered dietitian or your family physician. I just found your article. All that said, if you optimize your diet and exercise and stay really strict hardest part you could certainly come close. The only thing I drink is water and teas and the odd black coffee. Anything processed in general ideally. These carbs get broken down and digested much quicker than complex carbs and will cause your blood sugar to spike and fat to be stored.
I did lost about 8 lbs but after a while I gained it back. I would love to loose 15 lbs please tell me what I can do? Hi Gina — congrats on your success. I see you have really done well and I want to get healthy, into a smaller size, and improve my self-esteem. Can you help me with a diet plan or suggest a exercise program?
I would love to try this diet out since I will be going to the beach with a large sum of people in exactly 13 days, but one problem, i do not eat meat or fish. I use to weigh , now i weigh By the time we get to the beach i want a smaller stomach and hopefully smaller thighs and my goal weight is I am 42 and need to drop at least 30lbs by June. In the past, I have lost weight without exercising. I watched what I ate. Now I plan to exercise…. Hi Adam, I am 31 years old and have gained weight over last 10 years and currently i am 40lbs over my ideal weight lbs.
I have been trying to lose weight but it creeps back up after one or two weeks. I have decided to go carb free finally as my brother just lost 20lbs in a month along with cross-fit boot camp.
I always like variety though, and really enjoy a resistance workout in there as well — test things out for a couple weeks to see how they work out and make adjustments from there. Thanks for the input. First day of my 4 weeks diet starts today so yes i do need all the luck. Hi Bate, I am two weeks down. But this last week i manged to complete with saturday as my cheat day. I must confess that one is unable to eat much on cheat day as your body is tuned to specific timely meals.
But i didnt loose as much as i would have liked. I just dropped 1. Maybe because i couldnt do any sort of exercise. Now my second week has started and i plan to stick to the diet. Hi I am 25 years old and i am lbs i need to loose 35lbs and atleast 10 lbs till april 3rd week. I am want to share my diet plan can u please correct that 1. I dont get time to exercise so will do hula hoop for half hour. Please correct my diet plan and i am not loosing any weight and started the this diet long time ago but i cant see even a pound difference in my weight.
But dont think its always chicke i change it up to fish, drink lost of water and i work out everyday for 30min i run trust me this works. And Adam yes its very hard in the begining but its worth it. Hi Paula — I eat some turkey bacon and some chicken bacon.
Actually, I need to update my picture in this post because I rarely do regular bacon anymore. It still works, but I just like to choose something with a little less sodium and more importantly for me, something that is pre-cooked or at least is quicker to cook than regular bacon. I rarely have to snack at all. My breakfast is quite large and will always tied me over until lunch.
I then try to eat my lunch very slowly over an hour or so throughout the day while working, etc. Just because with how many you do as they are very calorie dense and you can easily overeat that type of food. My calorie intake is different every day sometimes as low as calories a day hard to find high calorie foods that are acceptable on the diet, beans are not allowed I have been eating avocados and nuts to compensate. I do minimal exercise usually a 40 minute walk a day.
Firstly, the Candida diet is not meant to be a diet for weight loss. There are many probiotics such as Threelac that have similar effects or can be used in support of this type of diet if this is the case. Is it possible to lose weight really quickly? Be consistent — we weigh in Saturday mornings. Same time every week. I would recommend you have a chat with your physician to review your diet — especially if you are doing any sort of exercise.
This will almost certainly send your metabolism down the drain. What I describe above never recommends restricting calories or even counting them for that matter.
I focused more on blood sugar levels and trying to keep them from spiking by avoiding all the fast digestive carbs. Yes I am on the candida diet for a purpose, because of the access of yeast in my body, but I have been told it helps to lower weight. Thanks for your time. Are you allowed lentils at all on this diet? Do you like any kind of bean — kidney, black, pinto, white, etc.? You could try adding a little spices to them to make better. I had a really hard time with them when I first started, but I now just toss them in a small frying pan with a little bit of butter and some minced garlic — I had a bit of pepper for taste and they are quite delicious this way.
From there you can move to quicker carbs but things that are still much better than breads, etc. Im 14 years old, only 5 foot, and put on 7 pound, yet i still stayed the same height.
Therefore, i got fatter, cause i didnt grow at all. Give me like a daily routine. Sorry if thats too much to ask. Eating healthy is very important, but you need to make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need and your doctor or a local registered dietitian is far better suited to tailor something to your needs. Thanks for reading though! I am 34 but I looked matured because of my fats. I started gaining weight right after i gave birth with my only child and now i have no idea how to lose weight.
I tried so many techniques but i felt lazy in continuing it. Could you please help me how to have such a determination as the way you did? I really need to lose weight.
Hey Moe — sorry for the delay responding. The Easter weekend had me away from the computer for a while. I think 10 in 2 weeks is a much healthier goal especially given some of that will be water weight , but will still require pretty strict eating habits for a while.
Real oatmeal is much better than instant oatmeal. And oatmeal in general is better than something like a bagel for breakfast. Is your diet similar to Atkins. We are actually going to be launching a series of 5 ebooks here on the site which will all be available for free. Hey Fany — great bet! What do i gotta do to at least get to ?
Hi i wanna lose alit of weight. I weigh pounds and i want to weigh I desperatly need help. Happy to help however we can. Like I mentioned to Emma above, we have a few books for free coming out that really simplify this whole process and break down weight loss into some easy to understand steps and info.
I need help loosing weight I love to eat eggs and bacon but what kind. Where can I get a copy of this diet. For anyone out there who is having doubts about this diet I will tell you it most definitely works. I started doing it last summer and I dropped almost 15 pounds in the first week. Let me know how I can help. In the year I gained an entire stone!!
My goal and dream weight is to get down to pounds. My weight has always been around pounds but over the past year and a half my metabolism seems to have slowed down a little.. However, I now only have pasta once a month if so. Having oatmeal for breakfast 7 days a week and sometimes even for lunch. I have rice once a day or every other day..
Would brown rice grains be ok and would brown pasta be ok? Real whole grains are great. Most people are unfortunately getting processed and refined stuff that has lost a lot of its value. Eating smaller and more frequently can also help keep it up as well.
My reasons for asking about the rice is because the only meat I eat is minced lamb or minced chicken. I eat fish alot.. But its ready frozen fish? I love vegatables like blackbeans and lentils so thats great to know. Unfortunately I have no exercise regime! I work 5 days a week, 8: I really need some motivation in the evenings! I am having a hard time losing bodyfat.
Workout days a week late at night like and go to bed like am. Im pretty athletic and former personal trainer.
I work til like 8pm during week. I drink black and green tea unsweet and water. For breakfast I either have a protein shake or 2 Kind bars all natural. The supper that I document over on the facebook page http: This will leave you full longer and will also help regular sleep. The evening cravings were definitely the toughest to overcome for me as well.
They did get much better as time went on and my body got used to not getting that junk before bed. I also felt much better. I want to say that I am glad you did it! Lost weight I mean: I know it will be hard x so thanks for giving us this example of your success x. I really wanna lose some weight really fast, I was just wondering what kinds of sustitutes would be best to replace my usal pepsi for breakfast and lunch.
Also what are some things I need to avoid when im out i dont eat any meats and have to avoid dairy products already. Hope to hear from ya, Hannah. Im craving pop sooo badly. I just bought crystal light to add to my water. Your story is really inspirational to me. Before, the thought of diets and exercise was very intimidating to me.
These methods however seem, for lack of a better word, easier. What did you normally eat for dinner during your diet? If you check out our facebook page — http: Hi I am 59 yrs old and cannot for the life of me lose weight. Been thru menopause and now no metabolism. Wondering if others has had the same problem. See, my mom is a bit of a health freak so I eat pretty healthy. It is horrible, and gross. Anyway, is it possible to lose lbs in about 2 weeks without exercising every day for an hour?
I can be as easy as 20 minutes every couple days from home depending on what your current level is. I have the same problem as Julia, basically I want to weigh around , it would really help. I need to get in shape quickly because people in my school keep calling me fat, and I want to prove them wrong. I have tried everything, but I always give up on myself.
I need to lose this weight, do have any idea how I could lose this weight fast without exercising that much? Thank you sooo much!! Feel free to send me an email through the contact form — it might be easier to help that way. If weight loss is a priority, then exercise should definitely be a part of that process.
I am a 19 year old female who weighs I did lose some weight, as I weighed before. I know that sounds over weight, cuz it is, but I am not fat. I have a flat stomach, and everything else on me is very skinny! Hey, I just wanted to say thanks: This will help me soooo much! I need motivation to stop eating carbs.
I seem to lose inches NOT weight alllll the time, so I need a change. Hey Melissa, Thanks for the comment and I hope it helps motivate you to be healthy.
Just as an FYI. I was just very selective as to what carbs I put in my body and made sure I chose very complex and slow-digestive carbohydrates. Feel free to download our books as well — we have a wealth of knowledge in there. Hi, I have hypothyroid syndrome and if I look at pizza I gain a pound.
I am strict about salt and stay away from it. I do not eat processed foods and I drink approx. My frustration is that I am too comfortable and I am losing nothing.

Of course I got depressed my parents got divorced. Beefier they did they always fought and broke stuff. I ate a lot because of this help me.
Your weight loss regimen is great. I have cut out the carbohydrates that I was consuming a lot of such as pizza, potatoes, bread and the list goes on.

I find it so hard and frustrating finding a diet that works for me and I weigh I sincerely need help and from what I see, I feel you can help. I am 40 years old and weight to today My goal to lose 3 stone in three months. I decided today 30 April to follow your diet plan. I will let u know every two weeks.
I am a 21 year old girl. My BMI is I need to decrease my weight to at least 55 kg. I have been going to gym for 2 months now and workout days every week for 2. I have reduced my calorie intake by per day.
I have completely avoided junk food,soft drinks and dairy stuffs. But i have a problem of ocassional over eating due to stress and emotional breakdowns.

My vice is beer on the weekends, I am not an alcoholic but I can easily put back a six-pack if I wanted to on a Friday or Saturday night when hanging out with friends.
Other than the beer, I only drink water, green tea, and coffee — no sodas or sugary drinks. Any other advice other than cutting out beer in the month of May to get under ? I plan to continue running and playing sports twice a week. Today is May 1st, I weight in at lbs and I am going to follow your diet and listen to all your advise starting tomorrow morning. I am going to update you and detail with program and inform your listeners.
I read all of your site and all the comments of your followers, and I am excited to start this today. Thank you Adam for this site…. I NEED to be less than pounds in 2 months, in order to fulfill my end of a deal I made with my parents. Really excited to get started! Thank you for sharing your results. Do you eat Fish? Hey, I read this guide from the top to bottom thoroughly might I say and I feel that this might be a little rigourous for me.
What do you recommend I do? Adam, I present situation and before you look a bit like. But I almost lost to be able to see my ribs. The problem in my face, abdomen and legs have a lot of fat exists. When I sat down to the very obvious. I am now having a diet , eating quite little if i can but my thighs are still super fat , i hate the way it expands … Can you help me?
Hi Adam, I am a 15 year old girl and trying to lose weight. I currently weigh pounds and im trying to get to atleast I tried to use your method and i waited two weeks but heres some bad news i got the same result. So i have a question is there an easier way to lose weight fast and without harming my health. I also would not like to half to go buy some drugs at the drug store. So please help me! I really want to be or Hopefully by the summer.
What should I do? Dear Adam, I have read your article and i was just wondering if you had any tips on how to stay motivated to lose weight? I also have noone to really support me either. I just want to lose weight for myself not for anyone else and need some advice! Try switching to diet soft drinks at first, and then taper off them slowly — just lower your intake over time until you get off them altogether.
Motivation is definitely a tough one and in our opinion something that you need to do everyday. I remind myself every morning why I do the things I do, why I eat the way I eat, to try to help stay motivated. I struggle everyday trying to control what i eat… Perhaps u could give me some advice on how to lose around 25 lbs in weeks max; the healthy and so that i keep it off.
I am always tempted by the junk food around me. Please, my weight has been an obsession ever since i could imagine.. Thanks and Sincerely, Reem.
I would start by having another discussion with your family about not leaving junk food around. Perhaps stress less about losing weight and more just about overall health.
I am trying to lose about 30 lbs I stopped drinking soda jan. In the short — start eating fish and greens and beans. Make sure you drain and rinse them first to avoid any gas issues not pleasant! This will also reduce the sodium content of them as well. My weight fluctuates all the time, literally, I feel like I can gain 2 lbs in a day…I dont know when your ebook will be out, but I would love to lose this weight once and for all and keep it off.
As I have gotten older, it is definitely harder to lose weight and keep it off. Thank you in advance!! Hey everyone — sorry for the delay responding to comments. I would start by optimizing your diet. Hi Adam, im a 23 year old mother of a 10 month old daughter..
I am still breast feeding, so I wasnt sure if I should cut all my carbs out. I lost 20 pounds while pregnant but gained 40 after… I want to be more fit, or skinny, or healthier to be able to run around with my daughter bevore she starts to walk. As well as having a higher self esteem about me will hopefully make my daughger look up to me, and when she is older know that she is beautiful no matter what.
Its harder for me to stick to a certain schedule. Since when she eats I do the dishes, or when shes sleeping if she sleeps I try to get a quick shower in, or eat what ever is the quickest. And since I am in an apartment I cant make too much noise or else I will wake her up please help… I am willing to do anything for my daughter. If you could email that would be greatly appreciated.
My beans were an amazing source of carbohydrates and I ate a lot of them. Start by taking the small steps. If you are able to, try pre-cooking your meals for some or all of the week and perhaps freezing them. We do a huge chilli every Sunday night and freeze most of it to have throughout the week — this saves a lot of time when in a pinch and you need a quick meal.
I am 88kg and my height is cm, with a BMI of Optimizing what you eat would definitely be my first suggestion. Slowly trying to incorporate a little exercise will go a long way as well. Really it just comes down to making it a priority and allowing yourself to take that 30 minutes a day to work on yourself. Hello Adam; Your information is so upbeat, encouraging and incredibly helpful.
Obviously, I am not the only one who thinks so! You hear so much about how great NUTS are for protein, etc. I feel selfish and guilty spending time just working out — helping myself.
I know that you are swamped with questions — But, I sincerely hope to hear back from you, soon like everyone else — I am hoping for some results, SOONER than later to keep me motivated to stick with it. Thanks for the kind words and I hope things work out for you.
Here are some of the answers to your questions as best I can:. If I were going to eat some fruit it would likely come in the form of field berries — blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, etc. Sodas — I try to stay away from them for other reasons rather than just weight loss, but they are really good at beating a craving in a pinch.
I have used them from time to time to avoid eating something worse. Peanut butter is definitely good, as are nuts. The only problem with nuts is that they are very calorie-dense and it is extremely easy to overeat when you have nuts involved. The legume family is very nutrient-rich and is a great fibre and slow carbohydrate source as well which the nuts are not.
Core exercises — pick up a decently weighted kettlebell maybe lbs depending on your size and strength and spend even 15 minutes a day doing a quick routine with them. Something like a kettlebell swing, pushups, and mason twists this is a very common workout for me now.
I am 29 years old and weight I weighed almost two years ago. I have been struggling trying to lose the last 25 lbs to reach my goal. My biggest problem is that I lose almost all of the weight from my upper body but none of the fat has budged from my under arm jiggly arms , inner thighs, knees or calves. Hi im 33 and weigh about pounds. I use to be about 8 years ago when i was in the best shape of my life, but since i got married I gained 50 pounds and dont have a ton of time to workout. I know eating has alot to do with it and hope you can help me get back to what I use to be.
I know what you mean about how seeing fast results can get you so excited that it motivates you to do more — eat better, become more active, etc. I look up great healthy recipes, exercise tips all kinds of healthy minded things. Also I totally agree about the cheat days. No matter what program we are on we need to feel ok when we have a cheat day. If we punish ourselves because we enjoyed a little extra one day then we end up in worse shape.
Hey Adam, recently I lost my husband in since I lost him i find myself getting bigger and bigger I need to know what I can do to lose at least a pds. Im even woundering if the dr atkins works will you please email me back or responed.
It sounds like a excellent diet plan because in the past Ive paid alot of money losing weight just to gain it back. Anyway im starting your diet monday. Wish me luck and I do agree exercise would be beneficial and healthy with every diet.
Offfff we goooo hopefully. I have ordered the kit and i am waiting for it. The site I filled in my address and paid through Pay pal. Can you verify the address you have for shipping? Hi Adam, my 30th birthday is coming up in 9 weeks. I just had my 4th baby 11 weeks ago and would love to lose at least 25 pounds, possibly 35 pounds by then. Is it possible to lose that much? Also, is the e-book available now?
I am so upset: There is a lot of problems with jumping from diet to diet that ultimately lead to failure a lot of the times. Hello — I found this site this morning as I too am looking to shed a few kilos — 7 in fact — that I feel are making me uncomfortable as my clothes are too tight. These kilos have piled on due to a change in lifestyle which finds me working from home and not having to go to a work place.
I have develop bad habits and reduced the amount of time I stand or walk about a building. By the way kettle bells are amazing for your core. I actually woke up this morning thinking that just as we plan our days, our social lives, our journeys so we need to really plan what we eat and — like a route map — and stick to it without deviation if we want to reach our goal.
It is, however, all too easy, come the weekend, to be influenced by those around us who are not so bothered by their reflection in the mirror. But to be true to myself I am going to listen to my body and be strong in aiming for that end goal and not succumb to all those crisps with double gin and tonics! Dieting to lose weight, it would appear, is about empowering yourself, being honest with yourself and listening to your body.
My present lifestyle shows I need adjustments to what I did before. I need to tell myself to have a drink water and get back to what I was working on, reading, etc.
Not easy when working from home. There is a lot of help out there with a fantastic amount of valuable advice, as seen on this site.
But I think when it comes to eating we alone have to be strong in ourselves just as in every other aspect of our lives. Anyone want to join me? I want to lost about pounds in a month or less.
Weightloss partners email me: Hi — well after one week I can say I lost 1 kilo — great! Hey ho and here we go again.
Cianna — your achievement is wonderful. It is wise to adopt a change in lifestyle that can be sustained. Not sure how long Adam would advocate eating black beans! So long as I continue to incorporate exercise in my week times I feel good; even though new muscle does weigh in a gym I vary routines based on alternating a run, rowing, cycling, using kettle bells and incorporating yoga moves to warm up and cool down.
