    op the only way to lose weight is throught a caloric deficit, i.e. burn more calories than you consume, use this to find out your caloric maintenance then eat 500 less to lose 1lb a week, 1000 to lose 2 lb etc, don't do any stupid "detox" fad diet bullcrap, eat proper food but be at a deficit

    Thank you very much, I will give it a go

    You should never just go without food, very unhealthy! Why not invest in some weights or a running/bike machine? Eating right is half the battle but you'll see vast improvements if you mix it in with exercise! You don't even need to buy a running machine really, just go for an early morning light jog for about 20 minutes every other day and you'll not only start to lose weight but feel great for doing it!

    WTF kind of retarded diet is this?


    OP - stick to around 1,200 calories a day, and briskly walk for around 60-90 mins a day 5-7 times a week.
    That's what I do, and it works perfectly well. There really is nothing magic about it.

    Of course it works, it's starvation. Doesn't mean it's a good idea though.

    Please listen. Don't do that diet. It's stupid and dangerous. That's a fact.

    You won't get enough of many vital things for your body. Don't try it 'just for one week' because you'll lose weight and it will encourage you.


    Weight is not everything, you won't be losing fast, your body will be starving and losing muscle which will make it harder for you to lose fat in future.



    If you want to lose weight then eat less, move more. If you can't avoid treats completely then try limiting them to just twice a week instead of every day. Maybe walk sometimes instead of taking the bus short distances. Those things will make the serious lifelong lifestyle change you need.

    Any diet is stupid and people that do them will put weight back on afterwards.

    I would never recommend any kind of diet nor I would try one, but I did lose +20 kg two years ago and I have stayed in my target weight. Some tips:

    1. Dieting won't work if you change nothing in your daily habits! After you stop the diet, you will gain all the weight back and be in the square one - or even weigh more than before!

    2. Make small changes, the kind you can imagine keeping up for weeks, years and decades to come! Try and find the veggies you can stand (and learn to love) and learn about benefits of whole wheat!

    3. Exercise everyday and change your routines - take stairs as often as you can, park your car in the far corner of a car park or leave bus a stop before you are used to and walk!

    4. This is boring but it's the one that keeps my weight balanced: weight yourself regularly, write it down and also count your calories. I do this everyday and I've been doing it for two years. I know when I can have a snack - and when to keep it stirct and walk past sweets isle.

    Hope this helps!

    Like others have said the diet posted earlier looks dangerous. It will work in the short run however unless you can maintain that sort of diet the weight is going to pile back on.

    Simple things I've done is cut out junk food, added more fruit and veg to my diet and drank more water instead of snacking all the time. I go to the gym every other day and do about an hour of cardio. I've been doing this for a bit over a month and have lost over half a stone.

    I think maybe the main issue is that you're wanting to lose weight too quickly. Try making simple changes to your lifestyle and lose weight gradually instead of skipping food and essentially starving yourself to lose weight. It would suck to lose a lot of weight and then seemingly undo all of your work as soon as you go back to eating normally. Losing weight gradually is more sustainable in the long run.

    Please don't torture yourself with fad diets.

    Weight loss is a game of counting or approximating your calories. Everyone needs to consume a certain amount of calories to maintain their body weight. If you consume more calories than required, you will get fat and vice versa.

    If your caloric maintenance is 2500 calories, you could eat Mcdonalds, while sitting on the sofa watching Jeremy Kyle all day, and not get fat. As long as you don't surpass maintenance.

    I would recommend using a caloric maintenance calculator online to workout your maintenance and then lower your intake by 200 - 500 calories. Use the Myfitnesspal phone app to track your calories and you'll be well on your way.

    If you notice that your weight loss has halted and you're not particularly happy with the way you look, lower your calories even further.

    Good luck.

    Find out your TDEE using an online calculator and make sure you eat less than that number every day.

    Recalculate as your weight starts to drop.
