Question: I'm losing the motivation so quickly... I've already lost about 10 pounds maybe. I just feel so temped to eat a lot more and to eat the things I've been restricting... these last couple days for me have been 'cheat days'. I feel like I'm losing to this diet but I can't have that happen... please motivate me. Whether it's quoted or anything I just need it.

Your body is just re-adjusting itself to this new way of living, so it will feel uncomfortable. It usually takes around 30 days for the body to adapt to its new regime, and even then it will moan at you from time to time. A diet is for life, not just something you do for a while then go back to the old diet. Our bodies are like a car in the sense that you fill it with fuel and the harder you drive it the more fuel it will use, but unlike a car a human body will just keep storing fuel until you drop dead. I say the best way to do it is to eat a very small amount quite often and exercise plenty. When you eat large portions it puts your body under massive stress and completely deenergises you. More than anything though, it's mind over matter, the good old will power. If you want it bad enough you'll stick to it, if not you won't, and will have wasted all that time dieting to end up back at square one.

You can lose 10 lbs/mo with this plan: ................ Breakfast: Oatmeal or granola with banana, berries and nuts.................. Lunch: Half sandwich on whole wheat and yogurt................ Dinner: Green salad with tomatoes, broccoli, shredded cheese, chicken or turkey................ Stick to fresh fruits and veggies, salads, eggs, chicken, turkey, fish, whole grain cereals and drink lots of water. Avoid fast foods, junk foods, greasy foods, sodas, coffee or starches. Noodles, rice, potatoes, bread, muffins, bagels and all forms of pasta which turns into sugar in your body. Eat only what fits in a soup bowl. No second helpings. Never eat in; restaurants: food has too much fat, salt and preservatives. And of course do some exercising.......................... Join a gym; the trained staff there will show you what equipment to use and for how long to get the look you are trying to achieve.

I have lost 170lbs. In 1994 I weighed 354lbs. I never went on a "diet." Here is what I did.....I started eating sensibly, following the dietary guidelines for a healthy 150lbs woman and I added lots of toning exercises to my daily routine. In the beginning I went to the gym 2 times a week. Within 6 months I was there every weekday morning at 7 am for 30 minutes. At the 1 year mark I was weighing in at 235lbs and wearing size 14. I could take the Saturday morning aerobics class and kick the skinny chic butts with my endurance. Today I weigh in at 185lbs and wear a size 10-12. There is no more time in my life for a gym. I walk, play at the park and beach with the kids and do lots of stairs going to the second floor. I am happy to say no diet here. I eat the occasional sweet more often than you would think. Go slow and be sensible. What you need is not a diet to go on. You need a diet to live with the rest of your life. Good luck.
