  • I think the only "diet" I ever tried was the special K challenge thing, but I didn't stick with it.

  • I did gerbil-life about 25 years ago; sure, I lost weight, but I didn't learn from it. It wasn't until I learned about nutrition, that I choose a healthy lifestyle.

  • i tried the dr dukan (sp) diet for a while.
    lost a bunch in the first week, but it was too hard to stick to in the other phases.

    i was also moody and sick.

  • 5 grams of fat a day or less. I didnt count calories, I counted fat grams and ate less than 5 a day. I lost 62 pounds in 6 weeks. Its NOT easy to do this as nearly everything has fat in it. Ate allot of beans to get protiens and lots of fruit and raw veggies and fat free rice cakes, but it really worked.
