Just discovered this site today and I am very impressed by it.
I am 57 years old and up untill 7 weeks ago I weighed 216 pounds since then I have reduced this to 189 pounds by following Dr Clarks low carb diet book.
I have tried more calorie counting diet that I care to remember and given up on them just as many times but this one seems to be right for me, what you can eat is limited but you can eat as much as you like of the "allowed" food so I am never hungry (it is boring though)
I have an old pair of Levi 501's (34" waist) and getting into them again is my target.
height 5ft 7"
Waist 38" (was 40 start of June 2011)
BMI 29.6 (was 32)
