I'm just starting my journey and have a long way to go but I'm interested in knowing what diets seem to be the most successful for everyone here... in either the short run (lose significant weight fast) and/or long run (sustainable over a lifetime). Please share!

Hello mrjotto!

As far as eating plans (don't use the "d" word...it's a killer!) staying away from processed foods, eating the "rainbow" of fruits and veggies every day, eating lean proteins and measuring and tracking everything that you eat. This is what works for me. That and exercise. I am still very overweight at 288 pounds so my exercise is pretty limited, but I try something every day. Don't starve yourself. Either see a doctor or visit a web site to see how many calories are needed to lose weight. At 288 pounds, wanting to lose 1 1/2 pounds a week, I eat 1650 calories. If I want to lose faster, I can cut my calories. I'm not ready to do that yet.

Best of luck to you...keep coming back!

The most exciting, challenging, significant relationship you have is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone who loves the you that YOU love, that's fabulous 297-6/6/14-CW 288.2 GW 165
