What diet actually worked for you?

By July 19, 2011 - 12:06pm

I am 54. Went into pre-menopause and gained 40 lbs. I've tried several diets, including the 6 week body makeover. I just don't know what to do anymore.

I've never heard of it. I follow the Zone and know it is an old program but it works for my body and I consider it a lifestyle as well. I think it's important that we do. Thanks for sharing the information, as anyone can now look it up. I've read "The 17 Day Diet" by Dr. Mike Moreno and have heard the P.I.N.K. Method is all the rage. I stick with what works for me. But the more choices members have the more likely they can find what works for them. Kali

I love the Eat Clean Diet but I don't call it a diet :) it's a lifestyle for anyone of any age.

I have had the opportunity to watch many people, including myself and my dad, lose weight by eating Paleo. This "back to basics" diet is simple; if a caveman couldn't find it or eat it, you shouldn't either. Lean proteins, veggies, fruit and nuts. For the science behind it, check out www.robbwolf.com. Fabulous recipes and advise can be found at www.everydaypaleo.com. Good luck!December 8, 2011 - 11:25pm

I have lost 84 pounds over the past year by following "the Zone" by Dr. Barry Sears.

I listen to the Fat2Fit podcast and on it - and their Website - they talk about eating and exercising like the thinner person you want to be. They recommend that you figure out how many calories you will need to eat at your goal weight and exercise like a person at that weight (with some provisions for if the gap between where you are and where you want to be is very large).

I lost about 20 pounds by eating 3 meals and 2 snacks, with protein at each one, running 3 times a week and going to Curves for strength training 3 times a week. You could substitute brisk walks for the runs.

Good luck!
