I am a newbie to the boards but not to weight loss- I lost 74lbs over about 8 months. Combo of Atkins, Water and walking. HOWEVER- word of warning- the quick loss resulted in me getting Gall Stones- this is a side effect, so be careful. I did my own modified verson of Atkins- no bread or starch, but allowed myself bananas and oranges- no simple sugars and LOTS of WATER- no soda. Oh- and lots of Fiber. Basic diet went like this:
Breakfast: bowl of bran flakes & 1/2 Banana glass of Orange Juice
Lunch- 1 plain chicken breast, Water w/ Lemon
Dinner- green salad with Tuna- plain, no dressing- water w/ lemon
6 Liters of Water a Day
I got off track after the gall stone surgery and now am back on - trying the use of CLA.
