    If you're losing that amount of weight that quickly it's very likely that you're not losing wholly fat (which is what you want). The rapid weight loss from what I can see is mainly due to a reduced carb intake, they require water to break them down, eliminate them from your diet and they give the illusion that you've lost large amounts of weight.



    Your body is always breaking down toxins and excreting waste compounds, it doesn't stop or start when you eat healthy foods.



    They're a business not a charity, while they operate a bit differently to most they're still out there to make a buck (ie; flogging lifestyle goods) on the back of their diet.
    It's certainly not an illusion. My cousin did this diet and has lost 75lbs.... that's 5 and a bit stone... and kept it off. She's healthy, and previous health problems have gone.

    I didn't say that the breakdown of toxins started when you start eating healthy foods, however, when you don't put crap in your body it certainly forces your body to adjust.

    If you're losing that much weight due to retaining less water, surely that just means you are dehydrating yourself? I'd expect more weight loss to start with, certainly, but the way she suggests that that's all part of the diet plan suggests to me that it's a crash diet.
    Not really, ACTUAL dehydration is only to do with salt levels, not just 'retaining less water'

    but ye .. from the sounds of it - it's poor, has SOME good elements, but neglects others

    also why MUST you have an apple? appleist !!

    As I said, after 2-3 weeks it slows down to 1-2 lbs per week.
    So, it's a crash diet followed by an acceptable one. That still isn't healthy. What is your daily food intake?

    Yeah, exactly, so it is just because you are starving yourself.

    LMAO

    look, if you are 75lbs+ overweight ANYTHING, like moving your ass, stop chain eating burgers will make a marked difference.

    don't act as if losing 10lbs is the same process for the not so morbidly obese

    Breakfast: 190g plain yogurt with 100g of berries and 2 tbsp of ground flax seed. I can have other things, but this is what I choose to have (i.e. egg and vegetables or cereal and milk)

    Lunch: 125g of veggies with either: 75g cheese, 75g beans, 120 g poultry, 40g nuts or 120g fish.

    Dinner: 135g of veggies with either: 130g meat, 220g yogurt, 130g fish, 85g beans, 130g poultry, or 2 eggs.

    I have to have one apple a day on top of that, pumpkin, sesame and sunflower seeds and I can put my bread in any meal or divide it between them.

    The vegetable weight does not include cucumber, celery or lettuce.

    On top of that I can also have 40g of sweet potato and 40g of carrots.
    yes cabbage yoghurt sounds tasty and fulfilling :lolwut:

    you could have a decent meal that is healthy but quite large. maybe have some hot chocolote after because i always find that i am less likelly to binge on sugary drinks.

    but i think that your 'stay away' policy is the BEST OPTION. once you start on a little bit of the junk food its IMPOSSIBLE to stop. like a vampire with blood. The cravings should stop after around 20 days or so, and junk food will actually start to smell and tast a little bit ****. also tell yourself about how terrible that stuff is for you and how you dont want to be a fatty therefore you dont want to eat it. its that simple.

    good luck !

    I give up both chocolate and coca-cola/pepsi for Lent every year, and once the first week or so is out of the way, it tends to be fairly easy.

    Unfortunately, one year my body got so used to it, I bought a biiiiiig chocolate cookie thing, and it made me almost sick to look at it!

    ok, my yogurt (130 cals) and berries (75-100 cals) this morning with flax seeds (153 cals).

    lunch: mixed green (?) salad with seeds (127 + 60 + 51 cals) , tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers (75-100 cals?) and steamed salmon fillet (250 cals) with herbs. Bread (80 cals) with olive oil (126 cals) and herbs toasted in the oven.

    dinner: chicken breast (150 cals) with green beans, carrots, cauliflower (100 cals?) and an apple (95 cals) with cinnamon for dessert.

    This is what I'm having today.
