anyone on a diet? what is working for you?


i have been doing the Ab's Diet for about 5 months. my starting weight was 230. yesterday i weighed in at 209. my goal is to get to 200.

I also do the Ab's Diet workout 3 days a week. my goal is to get to under 200. maybe even to enter in a marathon or trialolon someday.


I think the keys to weight loss are:
1. information (about nutrition, excercise, calories, ect)
2. motivation
Do not resist chances. . . and there will be one less thing you cannot do -ACG

Way to go!
Though I think the list should read:
1. motivation
2. information
3. motivation
4. more motivation
Changing lifestyle (exersise and eating habits, smokeing, ect..) is very hard to stick to. Congratulations!

My mom and sister went on weight watchers. Suddenly all the food in the house was weight watcher friendly. It was so easy my dad and I ate the weight watchers diet. I went from 280 to 190 in about 8 months, slowly dropping to 170 after that. I've kept the weight off for 2 years now.

I still have a little beer belly hiding my 6 pack, cooincidence? :lol:

My wife just started Weight Watchers recently and I've lost weight because of it, too. I"ve lost 5 or 6 pounds in the past few weeks.

Overall, in the past year and three quarters or so I've lost about 23 lbs (195 to 172) and I think I've put on some muscle. Since I moved from an apartment with a weight room to a house I haven't had the chance to lift, but hopefully I'll get some weights soon.

I wish I could take some of that weight from anyone willing to donate some. I'm somewhere around 5'6 and only weigh 110lbs. Tried everything, including those nasty shakes. I'm 24 and my damn metabolism just won't catch up to me yet.

Good job to those who are sticking by their diets. Keep up the good work :!:

cincykeith, I know where your coming from. Im about the same hieght and until about a year ago I was never more than 125 pounds. Now I am up to about 155 and feel better than I have in 15 years! All I can say is lots of good food and lots of exersise, like some light wieght training. Just to maintain your current mass you need something like 1 gram of protien per 2 pounds of body wieght per day. If you want to increase size you need like double that. And spread your meals and snacks out so your eating like 6-8 times a day. Drink LOTS of water and dont forget the vitamins. Dont forget, when a man hits 30 (or therabouts) his metabolism nosedives, better to get good eating habits now or you wont recognize yourself in a few years.

I lost 50 lbs in 6 months doing a low carb lifestyle, have kept all but about 3 lbs off now for 4 months and am getting ready to loose another 40 lbs, the key for me was WATER WATER then WATER...

I was drinking about 140 oz a day, a nutritionalist told me to drink 1 oz of water per day for every 2 lbs of body weight. I noticed that drinking that much water really made me feel better. Have to get back on that...

I lost 25 lbs in the last 4 months, my diet, not enough money for food and high stress levels...

(I cant wait to gain that weight back, I had just finally gotten to the higher side of the ideal weight for my height, now I am back to gross to look at underweight...)

You were pretty damn skinny to start with. You must look emaciated. :(

ive been eating vegan for a few years. i was in shape before but my energy has exploded. i can sleep 7 hours every night and jump up and go for 12 + hours no problem. i play 2 rounds of dg before work every day. being vegan changed my life and i recommend it to everyone.

shedding weight and getting healthy can ge two entirely different things.

I can't go for it for 12+ hours without Viagra! Maybe you are on to something...

I'm a Chef. Maybe the change wouldn't be so hard for me...

First off, congratz big time. Initiative is a great thing to see. For tips, your biggest meal should be your first meal and they should get progressively shorter, eat most of your complex carbohydrates in the morning, simple carbohydrates (sugars) up to 20 minutes before or after a workout so your body doesn't start storing it for later energy (thats what the complex carbs are for in the morning) Protein is good for muscle building, and try to get a balanced intake of fats and amino acids; they don't sound healthy, but if you dont eat more than your supposed to then it helps way more than it hurts. Smaller meals more often are ideal, and preferably no form of carbs after 7pm. Want to lose weight? no beer, they call it a beer gut for a reason. Great job once again, it's a lifestyle change like swel304 said. Keep up on it and to help deal with food cravings drink lots of water, you're not hungry if you're filled with water.

The last diet I was on was called my divorce diet, which is eerily similar to the no money diet Kid mentioned earlier.

How expensive is weight watchers? Also, can I expect to lose any weight if I'm a beer drinker? My motivation has been in the dumps lately, so I'm thinking of working on diet.
