    Lost 30 pounds in 100 days

    Overweight since 2nd grade. Couldn't defeat my appetite. At 51, went on a healthfast that incidentally brought my appetite under control. Went from a 40" waist, with belly-over-the-belt, to a snug 36" waist.

    The program and theory of why it works is in my article 'A Dose of Hope for overweight people,' on my website . All free. No money. Just learn and conquer!

    Thanks for sharing.

    What you say about buffets....well I like to get healthy eating and weightloss tips from everyone. I think we are all different and have to find our own ways to do this. We also, need to tweak it from time to time or we will just go back to our old ways.

    You said you did the re-pounding thing. How are you with that aspect?

    Hi Barb;

    I went back to the program and the weight came off again. Too much meat puts my appetite on high. I do buffets occassionaly so I can't go into the self-pity mode and self destruct.

    Hi Eric your exxperience accually puts a big "?" on the protein being filling . eating extra meats may not be the best way to get protein HMM

    maybe that protein powder many members use would be a better thing to get the filling aspect of protein.....
    your experience has me thinking ...

    Hugs Judy:)
