I wish I knew a good one. Unfortunatly I always gain 10 lbs after I loose 5 🙁  OxyElite Pro helped me loose weight but when I stopped taking it I gained it right back. They say to take 2 in the AM and 2 at lunch. I took one in the AM and that is it…for like 5 weeks and lost 15lbs. it helped me eat less refined sugars.

I really liked the Flat Belly Diet. Super easy- 400 calorie meals, 4 times a day and must have a MUFA (mono unsaturated fatty acid–good fat) at every meal like nuts, olive oil, dark chocolate, etc

@macbookbee123: yeah, it actually worked for me. Its just I cannot take them all the time. LOL They did have an embarassing side effect though. my face would be a little flushed and I would get a little sweaty armpits. Thats because it has a thermo something in it.

i would be careful with diet pills. i took them on and off for years and basically they are a quick fix. the second u are off them, you gain the weight back.  It’s what you said, calories in, calories out.  I learned this from seeing a nutritionist regularly for several months and i lost the 20 pounds i wanted. it still takes motivation and dedication as i learned after gaining 15 after my wedding.  well now i am motivated again and rather than seeing a nutritionist, i have been using myfitnesspal. its a website and an app if you have a smart phone. It really helps to track how much you have eaten and when to stop for the day.

@macbookbee123: I did it faithfully a few years ago and lost 15-20 lbs. It’s a healthy diet, so the weight loss is slow. But if you follow it, you are full all the time. The 3-day anti-bloat kick-off, I couldn’t eat all the food they suggest.

It’s crept back on, but that’s my fault not the diet. And it didn’t leap back on like it does with crash diets. Just a slow, I’m in a happy relationship, steady 1 lbs every month. So when I need to lose (or stop the gain), I use the same principles to add a MUFA to my meals.

The one I’ve found to be most sustainable is eating Paleo/Primal – not really a diet, per se – but a lifestyle change.  Bascially cut out processed foods, wheat, sugar – replace with lean proteins and tons of veggies.  It took me a couple weeks to cut my MASSIVE sweet tooth.  When I eat healthy, I don’t get cravings at all.  When I start sneaking junk foods back in, it takes effort to get back to where I was (usually a week of needing to show self-control) but after that – it’s seriously smooth sailing.

@macbookbee123: No offense (I just reread your original post), but if you are doing that much exercise, how do you have that much weight to lose? You would have to be consuming huge amounts of calories…

I’m doing myfitnesspal app on my iPhone, andjoining the gym. Nothing tricky, just calorie cutting, smart choices and working out.

Weight Watchers is great. If you’re looking for something really really quick, crash diet style, then WW won’t work. But consider it.
