    I have tried every diet book out there. So far, the only thing that's worked for me is a raw diet but I never can stick to it for long!

    hiya, my best tips are don't overly limit your foods, as this will lead to yo-yo dieting which is invariably unhealthy. Go with a sensible diet that allows for treats and a few glasses of wine along the way. Best bet is to try and increase exercise too, it is amazing how many times a day even a static office worker can do small movements at a desk, clenching buttocks, wiggling feet/legs/fingers, its all good for you [​IMG]

    You should aim to loose around 2lbs a week over a long period of time, this way you will be healthier, happier and the weight will stay off. When you have reached your ideal weight (talk to a doctor or nurse if you are unsure of your target weight) you can simply tweak your diet so that you stop loosing weight.

    Good luck [​IMG]

    Don't go for raw food. Have boiled veggies instead. And salads, fruits and sprouted legumes. Along with this you should drink plenty of water. And do some exercises. This will help you

    HCG works, but you have to go to a doctor

    I had tried a diet program called Fat loss program, the diet had helped me lose weight my boosting my metabolism. Aside for the diet try incorporating exercise on your daily routine, this is really important if you want to lose weight.

    There are all sorts of diet tips – some useful and some crazy.
    Some of tips mentioned here which may help you:

    * Keep a Food Diary

    * Don't Crash Diet

    * Exercise Regularly: Although exercise alone isn't an especially effective way to lose weight, it's a great addition to any diet plan

    * Don't Ban Foods: Some people think that if you're on a diet, you "shouldn't" eat any chocolate, cookies, chips, cheese, or any other "bad" foods you enjoy. The truth is, in moderation, you can eat what you like. Of course your diet is going to be unsuccessful if you're scoffing dozens of cookies each day – but one cookie or one small candy bar isn't going to have much impact.

    * Don't Ban Foods

    I started cutting out soda and sweets. I prefer more veggies and fish other than meat. Then in the morning I do jogging or long walk. When I am too lazy to go out, I do zumba. I locked myself in the room, and follow steps on youtube. It takes time for me to see the result, but at least Im satisfied with whats happening to me now.

    While I too am struggling with weight loss, I have found that the fitbit flex that my mom bought me for Christmas has helped some. At the very least I'm more aware of how active/inactive I am.

    do more eat less calories? I do this and stay at a reasonable 58Kg at 174 cms, late 40s, 3 kids, I stay really active. I don't just mean sporty stuff. I walk very quickly, do the housework like I've only got 10 minutes left in the world and want to leave a spotless house, I walk round the shops quickly, my children grew up running along side me almost! I put small serves on my plate and don't snack, except on very rare occasions. I do drink alcohol and can't think of any food I've 'banned', but there are foods I don't like. I don't like, for example, fizzy drinks ( I think US citizens refer to them as soda), I've never eaten Mac Donalds, Burger King, KFC etc. Just doesn't appeal to me. Our household eats really well, but we don't have take out food, or frozen meals, we eat A Lot of vegetables and pulses because here in Australia, meat is pretty expensive and we have a bigish extended family at home. I do try to do formal gym type exercise, but frankly it bores the pants off me after about 10 weeks, so I try to keep a variety of things going on. Any way, I don't think I do it any better or worse than any of the other posts, I've never participated in any diet in social media or women's mags- don't trust 'em.

    For me cutting out all processed foods. I TRY to stick with meat, veggies and fruit only. No processed anything.
