Hi everybody, I've been using fitday.com for years but haven't checked out the forum until today.

The best "diet" (I hate that filthy word) is the Bodywise Elance Weight management program. Most people lose 4-12 pounds in the first two weeks without hunger and feel great! It is not a fad, it is not a fast, it is about healing the body and reducing inflammation working with your metabolic hormones, not against them. Check it out on my website.......

Goth Angel..I was intrigued by this Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet plan so I looked it up. How much it is?? There are a million free diet choices so I didn't really want to pay for one. Thanks!

Hi , I just started doing the "idiot proof diet" by Neris and India. So far it is working. It is like Atkins but it is more flexible. They WANT you to eat lots of green veggies and such; but after the induction phase. So far my saturated fats are much lower than the poly/monounsaturated in the diet

Has anyone else tried this? It's basically low carb - high protein.

For myself I like the 6-Week Body Makeover. I lost 83 lbs, & kept if off for over a year. I've recently gained 11 lbs back so I'm back on this to lose those 11 lbs. Figure I'll jump on those 11 lbs before they get to 15, or 20 etc...lol. There's a bunch of questions & you figure out your body type (I'm a B) & then you eat foods for your 'type.' For all 'types' theres no:

~ added salt
~ added sugar
~ wheat
~ dairy
~ processed foods

I eat every 2.5 to 3 hours, & I get to eat CARBS...lol, like sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, oatmeal (MY FAV). When I was losing all my weight the first time ppl kept commenting what your eating AGAIN? Don't you ever stop eating...lol. I liked that for me I became a fat burning machine on that plan. I FELT wonderful on it. My skin even looked better. It's not that I totally came off plan, but I just recently started eating more processed stuff & some of the weight crept back on, but I'm going to stay positive & not beat myself up over it.

Took me 5 months to lose 83 lbs. Felt pretty good...lol. I had no problem keeping it off for a year. My problem has & always will be salt...lol. Started letting a little bit to much processed high sodium foods back in & now I'm up 11 lbs, but no worries I know the foods now that work well with my body. So I'll just take it off.

I like Nutrisystems. It has helped me lose 50lbs and it seems to work! I feel great. I love FitDay because it helps me see exactly why (or why not) I am losing weight!

sorry if this is a double post- It wouldn't go through the first time:

I just stumbled on this thread and thought I'd bump it for a day with my own experience. So far, I've lost 22lbs in almost two months (next week will be two months) by eating better. This means, to me
- less to no processed food. nothing that I can't pronounce/ recognize as good fuel for my body in the ingredients. NO PROCESSED SUGAR/ no white bread products, very little whole wheat bread products- trying to get my carbs from whole foods such as fruit.
- about 35-50 grams of fiber per day, which has been really easy with the amounts of fruit and veggie I eat now.
- a lot of fruits and veggies! Most days, I start my day off with a spinach, raspberry, blueberry, flax seed smoothie, then I eat more mixed greens, carrots and peppers, hard boiled eggs for lunch...etc. a LOT of fruits and veggies.
- I strive for 100% of all my essential nutrients (which has been easy to track with fitday, and easy-ish to accomplish with all the fruits and veggies)
- I have been cutting back majorly on my animal products, eating meat only once in a while, 1-2 times a week maybe. I know eating meat isn't the greatest for the environment, or my body. The meat I do eat has no hormones added, grass-fed if beef (but usually never beef). I do still eat fish once a week at least. I have been trying to keep eggs and probiotic yogurt in my diet along with one serving of cheese every couple days.
- I've cut back on the calories, although I do not have a particular calorie goal in mind for each day. I end up anywhere between 1100-1700 a day, lately, it's been close to 1400-1500, but as long as my nutrients are covered, i got enough fiber and protein, I'm pretty happy.
- maintaining/building muscle mass, which I know is important for the long run. I've been shooting for 70-80g of protein a day, and weight lifting/ circuit training from 20-50minutes almost every day.
- getting in 10,000 or more steps every day. My iphone is my pedometer, so I have no excuse not to track it and make sure I'm moving around enough during the day. I take a quick walk at night if I fall short, or I jog/bounce on my mini trampoline.
-positive body image. I look in the mirror and think about what I do like about my body. I celebrate the smallest of positive changes I see in myself. I let myself know that on days when I feel huge or uncomfortable in my skin that it is a temporary phase (yes, it's been years, but it won't be years in the future as well). I challenge my own body to make the changes I want to see in the mirror and feel in my body and self-image. While I'm falling asleep, I see myself as a smaller, even happier, me to reinforce what I'm working towards.
- I've been setting physical goals to accomplish. Right now, I would like to be able to do pushups, about 20. I can barely do 1, and that's after 6 weeks of lifting weights. I have a lot of body weight to lift with my arms, and not very much upper body strength. But I want to be strong, so I strive for it.

I hope I'm not forgetting anything useful...
