Posted on 08/02/2017 4:15:58 PM PDT by Chickensoup

Lost 33 pounds and had a little more to go. Have been working with a local health and wellness program and monitored dieting.

Very happy and dropped two clothing sizes. Going to try to drop another size or two. I have decided to be a little too little than a little too big.

Using low to moderate calorie high protein, moderate fate low carb diet.

Your diet tips always welcome.

About what I lost, no diet, no exercise, no changes in lifestyle.

Fast periodically. Early man lived okay without daily food.

I have been doing some fasting. 72 hours periodically to reduce inflammation. Has made an enormous difference. I no longer take much in pain relievers. No ibuprofen and little Tylenol. If I take Tylenol two days in a row, I fast, then need none.

So, it wasn’t chicken soup??

Congratulations. I’m always going to eat so I need to exercise more. My job is sitting at a desk for 9 hours plus driving another 40 minutes both ways.

Kinda off subject but I am planning to retire overseas and I’m reading the pros and cons about one location deep in Central America and one woman sniffed that she couldn’t live there because she couldn’t find enough products that were ‘gluten free’. Look, lady, you live in a jungle and you can eat stuff natural and non-processed but....

I have lost weight since I started eating like a cave man. I eat cooked meat, raw fruits, raw vegetables, and I walk a lot. I am not hungry and I can eat like this for as long as I live.

Read the nutrition labels on all foods that have them, and then avoid sugar as much as you can. It’s shocking how much sugar has been loaded into so many “low fat” foods.

For example, compare the sugar amounts in various yogurts, low-fat and otherwise. The amount of sugar per serving in one variety may be 5 or 6 grams, while a variety right next to it on the grocery shelf may have 30 or more grams.

Works for me!

It does seem that you've been really successful. Congratulations! One thing I've experienced after a similar weight loss is that after achieving my original goal, I let the next 10 pounds come off very slowly. A few revisions to the diet to shave some calories without affecting nutrition, an extra 20 minute walk each day. It took almost two years for those final pounds.

Something weird I'm doing now: Whenever possible, I have liquids with a spoon! It sounds crazy, but it seems to have taken off a few more pounds.

Keep up the good work. Let me know if you have any nutrition or exercise suggestions that have positive results.

Many years ago I was invited to a Sunday get together with the ladies-who-lunch crowd in our major metropolitan area.

All were droning on about their various food sensitivities and allergies and one woman exclaimed: I cant understand the poor people from India! all they have to eat is rice. Their food allergies must be set off by having to eat the same rice all the time! I can’t imagine how they feel!

I said quietly: I imagine they are grateful they have food.

Face it, it wasn’t my kind of crowd. LOL

Lost 43 pounds in a little less than 6 months. Walk intensely 4 or 5 miles a day for 4 or 5 days per week. Overall walking about 6 to 7 miles per day except on weekend.

No longer eat fast food. Other than that no huge change in diet (though I find I don’t need to eat as much as I used to like to eat...hmmmm).

All I have to do is not eat a whole pig in one day.
