I actually did a bad thing to lose weight after I gained five pounds from working at a fast food restaurant (those darn employee discounts tried to destroy me!). I ate 2 bowls of ramen for two weeks and I walked. That’s a total of 400 calories/day so obviously, I lost the pounds.
Now, my weight relatively stable. I stay at 120. When I feel like I’m gaining weight, I just eat a vegetarian/vegan diet. In fact, I found the best way to maintain my weight, and my skin, without virtually no work at all is through a healthy vegetarian/vegan diet. I just don’t have that much willpower so I go back to eating meat, but one day I’ll stick to it.
I also walk everyday. Walking does wonders for health and the body.posted about 4 years ago
Here is what I do. I do yoga on a regular basis so I am a big fan of detoxing. I do the Master Cleanse ever 6 months for 14 days with 3 ease in and 3 ease out days so my body gets use to food again. The weight loss is a bonus, but it is to reset my body so I can have it function better. I tend to also eat a vegetarian/ vegan diet during the week and on weekends I will eat meat if i feel like it. I also allow myself 1 Cheat day a week. I will eat as much as I want and whatever i want so I don’t feel like I am depriving myself (and it is good for your thyroid girls). Also getting about 30 grams of protein first thing in the morning and 30 grams of fiber during the day helps keep me at a happy weight and satisfied during the day. It isn’t really about dieting, it is about doing what your body needs and being healthy. The weight will come off and you will be a normal happy weight if you do what your body needs. Listen to it, don’t deprive it.posted about 4 years ago
I think dieting is one part of a healthy lifestyle. It complements exersize. It’s all equally important. However, I personally don’t do “fad” diets, because they do more harm than good. Dieting should be about mainting your personal healthy weight, not looking like a stick figure. So I like to use “Everything in moderation, even moderation”. Some of this, some of that, and it’s GOOD to indulge yourself every now and then! If you deny yourself small bits of sweet things, you’ll end up binging on them at some point.posted about 4 years ago
