    Portion Control. That’s It. I ate everything I wanted, but simply ate them in the correct portion size. Yes, it was easy to maintain. To me, it wasn’t a diet, just a lifestyle change.

    You will lose more body fat eating protein and fat (don’t eat protein alone) than not eating AT ALL. To lose weight fast eat all you want but nothing but meat, eggs, healthy oils, mayo, butter and half an avocado a day (you’ll need added potassium). Keep the calories high and the fat percentage high, at least 65% of calories. Adding in green vegetables & some cheese will continue weight loss but at a slower pace.

    Your body won’t release fat stores if you lower calories below what it needs. It will slow your metabolism to compensate and store every spare ounce as fat. If you continue lowering your calories, it will continue lowering that set point, til you can survive off nothing and store fat on anything. The body will only release it’s fat stores if it knows there is plenty of food.

    Simple carbohydrates (sugar, flour, bread, cereal, pasta, potatoes, rice) triggers insulin which can store the calories you eat into fat. The more protein you eat the more the fat burning hormone glucagon is released. The more carbohydrate you eat the more the fat storage hormone insulin is released.

    Simple carbs are addictive and can be disastrous to our health. The best way to break the addiction is NO carbs for 3 days. Make a huge batch of deviled eggs and eat one every time you want “something” have huge omelets for breakfast, with bacon, a lil onion, peppers, mushrooms & cheese. Pork chops for lunch. Get pork rinds and eat them with tuna salad. Steak for dinner. Make a huge sugar free cheese cake for dessert. Eat so much you won’t feel deprived of anything. By the fourth day, your addiction will be gone and you can start making healthy choices.

    High insulin levels unbalance other hormones. Controlling your insulin level will balance out other hormones & allow human growth hormone (HGH) to be produced naturally so you will gain lean muscle even without exercise. Any exercise will greatly increase your muscle mass with high HGH levels.

    Once you get near your goal, you start adding 5 carbs every 3 days til you gain weight, then you subtract 10 carbs. That would give you your personal carb level (everyone is different and it depends on how active you are.) As long as you remain <9 carbs per hour, you will maintain insulin control, and shouldn't gain weight. Many people gain weight on high carb, then switch to low carb to lose weight & then are shocked when they return to high carb that they gain weight. Many people can return to moderate carb levels but very few can really eat all they want of sugar and maintain weight or health.

    Dr.Atkins was a cardiologist, low carb was a health plan easier sold as a "diet" Read any of his books for easily understandable science. Lutz "Life without Bread" & Taubes "Good calorie, bad calorie" are excellent books that dispel all the nutrition myths.

    Reducing body fat and increasing muscle mass will have you in awesome shape in no time. Good luck!

    i found following a strict regime hard to stick to
    but i have been on a gluten free diet all my life, i recommend switching to that if it wont affect you too much.
    also, i started exercising daily. some days i would wake up at 6.30, and go for a run, or do sit ups… either way my workout would be different every day, and it’d always be fun.

    when you’re exercising, somehow you find it easier to control what you’re eating. i also got a dance mat, which was so fun and burns so many calories, i really recommend it.

    i was able to lose 52 lbs. and keep them off with this diet:

    drink lots of water, and eat regularly. don’t starve yourself, because once you start eating again, you’ll gain everything back, trust me.

    eat lots of fruits and veggies, and if you eat bread, make sure it’s whole grain. white bread is pretty fattening. you can also eat lean meats, like fish, turkey and chicken breast.

    skip out on sweets, candy, sugary foods, chips, ice cream, cake, and cookies.

    if you feel hungry, but don’t want to over eat, chew gum. it’ll keep your mouth busy and it tricks yourself into thinking your eating.

    cut out ALL soda! if you stop drinking soda, it helps you out a lot!
    and don’t forget to exercise!

    try walking, jogging, jump rope, dancing, bike riding and swimming. try exercising for 45-80 minutes a day.

    Making a lifestyle change of eating right and exercising regularly (5 – 7 days a week).

    Is it easy to keep the weight off? Yes…as long as I eat right and exercise.

    Ya didn’t put the pounds on overnight though, so don’t expect them to disappear overnight. Any loss over 3 lbs/wk is too fast and likely to return.

    Good luck!

    Hi there,

    Losing weight fast and in a healthy way is not as hard as people think. In fact, it can be pretty easy. Just cutting soda and sugary drinks from your diet COMPLETELY is just one awesome way to lose weight fast easy and healthily. (I lost 10 pounds alone only with that one change) That along with the other tips I’m going to share below (all are very safe and healthy) and you will be on your way to easily losing the weight and keeping it off.

    As cliche as it may sound you gotta eat your veggies. They are amazingly good for you, also raw nuts (almonds are best) fruits, and 100% whole grain breads instead of white flours (white flour is very bad for you, read up on it if you get the chance!) Try and stay away from fried foods and fast food as much as possible, and other empty calories and foods that provide you no nutrients, like ice cream/candy/cake etc. Common sense goes a long way with what foods to eat and how to be healthy, so use it 🙂

    Building healthy eating habits and keeping the weight off in the long term is what you should really strive for. Also, make sure you don’t count calories, it can drive you CRAZY! Just eat GOOD calories, and when your satisfied, stop eating. Try to eat more meals a day and portion them smaller, it really is proven to speed up your metabolism and burn fat way faster. If you mix this in with the other things I’ve shared, you will be on your way to easily losing weight and keeping it off.

    Just be persistent, set goals, make little changes and stick with them. You will get to where you want to be. You really have to want it, I did, and I’m at my goal weight now. Please check out my blog, I think you will enjoy the information and my weight loss story. The link is below and best of luck hon.

    The best regimen I have found was the Asian diet.

    A lot of the answers you will see here will tell you to buy some sort of supplement. Don’t take diet pills. They are unnatural and dangerous. It is not the lack of pills that got you heavy; that is not the fix you need. It was (most likely) improper diet and lifestyle that got you the extra weight. That is the fix you need.

    The best way to lose weight is through the principles of balance and moderation. You need to eat good food and eat enough of it.

    Shoot to lose 1-3 pounds per week. No more. Don’t go hungry, just keep yourself filled with good, natural foods.

    Don’t worry about calories. Caloric science is flawed for several reasons. 1) it assumes 100% absorption, but we all absorb and excrete different amounts; 2) It assumes all calories are processed the same, but calories from natural sources are burned more slowly and evenly than from refined sources; 3) It assumes that the amount of energy released by combustion (burning) in a lab is the same amount of energy released when the food is broken down enzymatically in the gut; 4) It assumes that the same exercise done by different people will burn the same amount of exercise, but different exercises will be harder or easier for different people; 5) Correlation does not prove causation. People who are heavier eat more calories: did the calories make them heavy, or did being heavy make them need more calories? Maybe they are both symptoms of a deeper problem. 6) people in China consume 25-40% more calories; even the sedentary office workers have more calories and less obesity than we.

    Asian cultures have long ago figured out how we should be eating, Ever since we have looked to science to tell us how to eat we have seen more obesity and diet-related disease. If we eat like the Asians, we will look like the Asians. This doesn’t mean you have to eat Asian food, just adhere to the principles that are common to the different cultures and cuisines.

    You should eat mostly vegetables, mostly cooked (cold and raw foods slow your metabolism because they need to be cooked in your stomach) and a wide variety, mostly fresh and in-season and local, simple grains (more rice, less bread), some fruit, a little meat, no dairy (it’s for infants and grows tissue), and no artificial foods.

    Avoid artificial foods, including sugar substitutes. Don’t worry about calories, fat, protein, carbs, nor any one component of food.

    There are several books that explain this strategy of eating. “The Asian Diet: simple secrets for eating right, losing weight, and being well” by Bussell explains the diet and its rationale. “The Asian Diet: get slim and stay slim the Asian way” by Tran has recipes that adhere to the principles. “The China Study” by Campbell has the science behind the recommendation.

    Get some exercise every day, but not too much and not always the same exercise. Start slow and work your way up. Calisthenics are great, as is Tai Chi. Walking and swimming are also great. All other exercises should be in a wide rotation.

    Follow the principles of balance and moderation and you’ll be fine. Most diets in America are not balanced nor moderate.

    In order to reduce your body fat you need to first reduce your calorie intake. Your goal will be to consume less calories, in the form of food and drink, than your body actually requires, thus, creating a calorie deficit. One pound of fat is the equivalent of 3,500 calories. If you split this down over the week that’s 500 calories per day you need to be eating less of. Achieve this and you will loose one pound of fat per week.

    To loose more than one pound of fat per week, you can loose even more body fat by engaging in exercise. Examples include cardio such as running, biking, swimming, rowing, etc. You can also engage in resistance training which will help make the muscles stronger and firmer, and will also burn additional calories. Remember, the more lean muscle tissue you have on your body, the more calories you will burn on a daily basis, even at rest.

    Through a combination of diet and exercise you could expect to loose around 1-2 pounds per week.

    Eat less, move more. Eat the majority of your calories early in the day. Eat four to six small meals a day with breakfast being the largest and dinner being the smallest. Avoid sodas and junk foods.

    That’s what helped me lose weight. And I’ve kept it off since I lost the last of it Dec. 1st.

    The NBC television show “The Biggest Loser” is using whey meal replacement drinks to help the contestants lose weight.

    The basic premise is you consume fewer calories in the whey shake than in a normal meal (say breakfast). The 20 or so grams of whey protein makes you feel full, but you reduced your caloric intake to 150 to 200 calories and you lose weight.

    Whey protein also stimulates the release of appetite suppressing hormones, so you tend to eat less all day. Plus it has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels, which reduce cravings.

    whey meal replacement drinks are definitely worth looking into
