Diet Plans?

Does anyone have a good diet plan that works? I need to shed a few pounds and have been struggling with that. Have been eating healthy, cut down on sugar, sweets, Coke, etc. Started exercising regularly again, but haven't lost anything since February. I just need a healthy, easy, diet plan. With easy I mean not funny meals, or specific recipes, etc.
Thank you!!

Re: Diet Plans?

You might want to look at your exercise routine. Granted, lowering your sugar intake is great and extremely hard to do since sugar is in a lot of foods -- but what about your activity level? I have found that when I increase my activity level, I am able to lose weight quicker and your body will start showing the difference sooner than just trying to eat a restricted diet. Restricting certain “bad” foods will help your health but it may not show much results. If you have a lot of weight to lose, restricting your eating will show results but the less you need to lose it is harder to get the results you want without physical activity.

I have found that cycling is a great way to lose a lot of inches. I hate the cycle bikes at the gym, it is so much more enjoyable to bike outside. I am trying to get back on a routine to lose the weight I have gained throughout the years of yo-yo diets. Years ago when I cycled I had about 50 pounds to lose and I lost it fairly quickly during a 4 month period by restricting my diet (low calorie/low fat/little sugar) and cycling 5 days a week. My entire body became defined and thin within a short period of time (4-5 months). It was amazing to myself since I thought I would only see results on the bottom half my body but every inch thinned.

It is hard at the beginning to start cycling but it gets easier with time. Currently I just completed my first week and going slow but I am going. Well I hope this helps, CC
