@JustG:  i recommend doing a whole30..this means no grains, no dairy, nothing processed(so NO sugars) no legumes(except for things in a pod)

your body will sync up & you should lose weight & feel healthy..

try to eat grass fed/free range meats of any kind..chicken/fish/beef/pork

also- are you exercising at all? lifestyle choices are 80% diet 20% working out

I’m a long-distance runner, so I COULDN’T get rid of carbs!

I did go lower-carb, higher (non-meat) protein, and TONS of veggies and Greek yogurt!

I went from 143lbs to 122lbs for our wedding! I’m 5’7″

if you can happily stay on it for the rest of your life and not feel you are making sacrifices. short term diets cause excess rebound weight gain… Opposite of what is desired.

Your body lets you know very quickly what it will respond to. What works for me is calorie cycling, and avoiding processed foods and simple carbs.

Right now I am doing a mostly low carb diet, which is really hard considering I work in a bakery.  I stick to mostly meats and vegetables, but still eat whole wheat bread with lunch because I know having some carbs are healthy.  I am also alternating between p90x and Zumba for exercise.   I’m hoping it helps even out my skin tone as well because I have a mild case of rosacea.  Going to see a dermatologist can help because maybe they can recommend some skin care and foods that will help.  I plan on going to see mine when it gets closer to the date.

There are tons of diets and each one has its own following, but the best thing you can do is to eat plenty of vegetables. Nobody anywhere will tell you vegetables are bad, and if they do they’re nuts and you should run in the other direction. Carbs, protein, fat, etc are all under more scrutiny depending on who you ask but I personally believe you must eat adequate protein (meat), good fats (hint: nothing man made, with the best sources being animal and next best plant/seed), and some whole grain carbs (less if you want to lose weight). As far as the breakouts, try eliminating gluten and/or dairy and see if that helps. Sugar is also something to cut down on or even eliminate. 

Everybody is different, so do some research and try some different diet principles and see how you feel. I personally would avoid vegetarian diets. Above all else, the best tip is to cook your own food at home and rarely eat at restaurants or prepared/packaged foods–best for your health and your wallet.

Avoid fad or “miracle diets”. If it sounds too good to be true, it is. 

Personally, several friends and I have lost a ton of weight watchers. It’s manageable , and a lifestyle change, so you not only lose weight, but you also keep the weight off.
