I did a ton of research before I went this direction. There are pros and cons, but the cons are because the plan wasnt done correctly. It is doable.
I am not obese, but heavy for my height. My goal is to only loose 30-35 pounds and maintain. You do have to have dedication and mental endurance to do this tho'. I know I am not supposed to see the results YET, but I woke up this morning, weighed in, and I started at 137.5 and this morning I was at 135. My goal is 105 or 100. Im only 5'1", so you can see why I feel I am heavy for my stature.
I also drink Lean Shake (80z) and that really helps with curbing the appetite. I just want to regain some energy to be able to exercise and be at a healthy weight again.
