My sister is getting married in a month and I need to lose weight. I’ve tried several diets but with no effect. Not even one helped me and I’ve got the impression I’m not a diet person. I just don’t know what to do anymore. Give me a solution please.
First of all, stop trying out too many diets and just stick to one. That is the main reason you don’t seem to get the results you want. And second of all, a diet is not about eating in a specific order or of a list. Diets are about losing weight by eating healthy food. The mixing and matching is your decision to make. Of course, you won’t be eating fish for breakfast. You can find lots of useful articles about weight loss and diets at http://www.projectweightloss.com/index.php – for free. You can also find there a menu planner that makes it easier for you to calculate, in calories, what you eat. The trick is to try to burn more calories than you actually eat.

Remember that exercising is also very important if you want to lose weight. Also, some diets are very strict and, therefore, harder to stick to than others. Don’t be discouraged. My advice is to relax and find a diet which includes the foods that you like most. Good luck!
I would suggest a five day program which promotes healthy weight reduction through control of the glycemic response, which resets the body's metabolic setpoint. The average weight reduction is 4-6 pounds, and I can send you the study and the name of the program via email. You can find free articles related to glycemic index control at mommyhealthcoach.com.
The best solution is not to diet-75-85% of dieters are triggered to binge after the diet. Lifestyle changes are best. I hope this helps and understand your frustrations.!
I started my own thing last month. I cut out all bread, ice-cream, potato chips, and almonds. And trans fats. I started using the tread mill and the elliptical machine once a day. If I had time and in the mood I would go on twice. It's slow going but I'm almost down a size. It feels good to have the skirts and pants loosen up a bit.
I also did the diet thing but found by cutting carbs it works best for me and my cholesterol levels also went down.
