I think that's the biggest point people don't understand.... sure you're gonna lose temporary weight on the "Insert Latest Fad Here" diet, but unless you plan on living this diet all the time, it's not going to do much good.

IMO, if you're going to change your lifestyle, a better angle would be exercise over a strict diet. Exercise provides something new that you're not already doing(easier to look forward to), and you can get exercise without having to buy anything. You don't feel that you're missing something you normally have(compared to craving rice or bread). And if you exercise enough, you can still enjoy whatever foods you want. You can also pick a form of exercise you'll enjoy, instead of being told how you have to go about a diet. Of course with exercise, you still have to stick with it... but I find that easier than sticking with a diet plan...

It's different for everybody, but don't think that Diet X is the only way to go.... for me, it's easier and more motivating to add something to my routine than to say I can't have anything on this list...

Hydroxicut, excercise, proper diet consisting of tofu...green veggies...and protein like steak, chicken, turkey, and salmon in reasonable proportions. your stomach is the size of your two fists together...the more you eat...the more your stomach expands...the more it expands...you more it takes to fill you up...the more it takes you to eat to get full...the larger you end up getting.

and drink plenty of water...no soda, sweets, carbs, breads, starches

follow that..and you'll lose the weight.



You'll be looking like Mary Kate Olsen before long


Oh yeah and if you fail the diet and eat sugar/sweets...just purge it all up

Actually I have a small ass. It's the tire above it that needs to shrink. I lost 23 quick lbs after the heart attack. But I have plateaued and can't lose anymore. Even though Fariba's feeding me healthy stuff and in small to moderate portions. I need to lose another 20-25 lbs. I have dramatically cut down on anything fatty. But I cannot and will not give up Persian rice. That's death to me! ;) That said, even my cosumption of rice has dramatically declined.

BTW, Iowanian mentioned workout. My workout is still no more than just brisk walks. It will be some time before I am cleared for more vigorous exercise.

The only way I can lose weight is with a modified Akins ... I believe the South Beach comes from Akins and is more healthy???? I was going to encourage you by telling you that after I get started on Akins I'm not hungry and the diet helps me stay on it, but if you've lost weight it might not work for you????

Brisk walks works wonders for taking off pounds ... heard a so called "expert" on on of the shows ... I think it was the NBC Today show said, moving a mile burned the same calories ... if you walk or run it is the same amount ... it just takes longer to walk than to run. Plus, if you and Fariba do it together it will give you some quality time. Go for it ... it will do you good and help you too.

01-22-2007, 08:07 PM
Fish had it right, for most of us a strenuous workout & then eat what you want to, only in smaller portions is the ONLY way to go.

But since you are coming off of serious heart trouble & are probably quite limited in the intensity with which you can excercise, perhaps you had better listen to Fariba.

Good luck Frankie.

I started the South Beach Diet as a new year's thing. I haven't really had much of a problem. (There was one weekend of cheating, but it was my birthday). As long as you eat something whenever you get a craving, you'll be fine. I just keep a bunch of string cheese, jello, or celery and laughing cow cheese with me at all times. That laughing cow cheese with celery is the best thing ever to happen to the world.

I've been reading his book, and it's a great diet for people with heart problems- it was created by a heart doctor person...

Oh, and the sugar free Popsicles are good, too- they're flavored with splenda, so they don't even taste sugar free. If you, like me, have a caffeine addiction, he allows one diet soda per day, which I'm surprisingly getting used to the taste of.

Anyway, my advice to stay honest: eat constantly. Keep snacks with you at all times and eat little meals all day long- especially don't skip breakfast- very important!

I wouldn't even go on that diet. Terrible diet. Consider it an unbalanced diet. And a big reason for that is, you're lacking out all the essential vitamins and minerals that come from a balanced diet.

Seriously, its an unhealthy diet. Don't buy into this zero carbs crap. Your body needs sugars, its important to keep your blood sugar level balanced, and stable. Like some of these guys are saying, expect to lose weight and put it back on. Thats how this diet works. Because all you're gonna be doing is depriving your body of carbs, and secondly, when you deprive your body of carbs, you place yourself at risk of getting a metabolic disorder known as "Ketosis". All that is a build up of chemicals in your body called "ketones". When that happens, your body excretes more sodium and water loss. So in other words, you can possibly dehydrate yourself? Yeah you'll lose weight, but it'll be lots of water you're losing as well. When you go back to eating normal again, that water weight will come right back. Trust me, Im talking to you from experience.

I've been through this low carb diet before, I hated it. I think its crap. It takes a toll on you mentally, you go to the gym, you feel exhausted, tired, sluggish, just completely slow. You dont even want to train some days, its awful. I hated it.


Honestly, your better off going with a healthy well balanced diet. Just eat clean, plain and simple. Get your complete and incomplete proteins in there. Add some essential fatty acids, stay away from saturated fats. Go with Omega 3s. And eat carbs low in the GI index. Stay away from junk food, dont eat out. Mind you, its ok to throw in some cheat days, here and there, once or even twice a week. The carbs you want to eat are carbs that are low in the glycemic index. Get a good dose of complex carbs in a day, and you'll be alright.

You wanna lose weight, it's simple. You expend more calories than you consume in a day. Screw this crap of low carb diets. The reason they say, "Oh low carb is the way to go". It's because its a fast way of losing weight. You know what happens when you exercise? Your body burns the sugars first, fat second, and proteins third. So thats why so many people go on this low carb diet. Sugars dont burn as fast. And you can't burn fat unless your body burns the sugars first. So if your body is deprived of sugars, it'll attack the fat, and use it as a form of energy to make up for the physical demands of exercise. Just a quicker way to burn fat.

I think you can achieve what you want with a balanced diet. Trust me. And your body will function A LOT better. At least when you go to the gym you'll feel more alive, healthy, and strong. Eat small portions of food. Important to eat several times a day. id say 5-6 meals every 2-3 hours. That'll help boost your metabolism. Just watch your caloric intake. Make sure your burning more calories than you consume in a day, and you'll lose weight.

Yes, the guy is a cardialogist. Fariba is reading the book. She never told me about the Diet soda thing. I need to set her straight.... keeping things from me! ;) I have ben drinking diet pop for years. And I'm used to the taste. In some cases even, I actually think the diet version tastes better than the sugary one. I'm not a coffee addict, but a bit of a tea adict. So as of yesterday, I was drinking decaf tea. I have Equal and Splenda to sweeten it with. But on the Splenda pack it says that it is made from sugar so I have avoided it.

According to the specialist my wife just saw at the UofI, there's a documented link now between NutraSweet (aspartame) and headaches. Atkins says that aspartame has an adverse affect on blood sugar and insulin production. So yea, Splenda is probably a better idea.

I'm a firm believer against fad diets because they are totally unbalanced! There is actually some fast weight loss if you follow them correctly, however the nutritional imbalance is UNHEALTHY for your body, especially your kidneys.

Also, I think total deprivation from certain foods that you like is bad. It makes being on the diet, hell and you won't be able to maintain the weight loss. There are much smarter, healthier, and long term ways to become healthy.
