Why not speak to a dietician and tell them what has worked for you in the past and see if they can give a plan that works for you?

lilredcat :  whole30, look into it. You should be able to easily lose AT LEAST half of your desired goal in 30 days.

lilredcat :  you need to know what works for your body. I know that for me the only thing that ever works is Low Carb High Fat diet. I cut crabs to minimum (no bread, no grains, no pasta), eat a lot a veggies, fish, chicken, meat, salads, fruits. Just focus on food low in carbs and clean.

Interesting…

I’m a huge believer in CICO (calories in, calories out). I count calories and have steadily lost weight every week eating pizza, cake, and fast food lol. Sign up for a site like MFP and they’ll give you the number of calories to eat everyday. I’m down 40 lbs with no exercise, just eating at a deficit. 

Personally  I could not cut entire food groups out of my diet.

mrs2014 :  My Fiance lost almost 100 pounds on this diet! He lost 30 in just 2 months.

I have to stick to a high protein and fat diet. I’m gluten, dairy (except cheese), and soy free. If I eat any of that crap I get horrible inflimation and don’t go to the bathroom. I lost 15 lbs in just 6 weeks. No exercise other than the 12 hours I’m on my feet at work 2 times a week. Look up LOW FODMAP. It was originally to help those with IBS, but my mom was put on it for a bunch of other issues and not only are her medical issues improved, she’s also lost 30 lbs.

nurseybee55 :  I second slimming world great diet. I ate so much and still lost weight. I’ve put it back on but that’s because I have food relationship issues nothing to do with slimming world. My mum did it as well she’s 60 and it helped her lose weight. Most of the women in my group were over 40 and all had great weight losses. I’ll be going back after I have my baby as it’s safe to do while breast feeding.

Itsnotme :  I know!! It seriously is the best ‘diet’ I have ever done! I have so much yummy food that my friends can’t believe I am losing weight! This time around have been doing it for 2 weeks and lost 7lbs 😀 has been slowed a little by some intensive exercise but have been reliably informed that it is just fluid in my muscles protecting them and it will shift suddenly when I get used to the exercise! All my clothes are getting loose again! Huzzzah!!!! I wonder if there is a way to follow the plan in the US??

I have PCOS and lost 30 pounds the last boot camp I did in 9 weeks.

You can do this easily. CICO is what works for me, and choosing what calories are going to keep me fuller longer! Protein is your friend.

A ketogenic diet. High fat, moderate protein, low carb.  You can lose that pretty quick.

And I feel your pain. I cannot eat sugar, at all.  And I cannot eat more than 50gr of carbs day to maintain.  If I want to lose weight I need under 20gr per day, and they only come from veggies.  Once you lose it, I would look into paleo or whole 30 to keep it off.

Please do not get seduced by any sort of diet which removes whole food groups, unless advised by a dietitian (great advice to do so from a PP). Focus on real foods, often, and in appropriate portions and resistance exercise to build muscle.

Lots of fruit and veg, organic animal proteins, nuts and legumes, some beautiful carbohydrates like sourdough bread, brown rice and, yes, pastas and healthy fats.  Heck if that’s too much eat your usual stuff but monitor calories in and calories out like already suggested.

Make long term healthy changes to your health so they’re long lasting. Any “diet”? You’ll put it back on and then some

I love Paleo. For me its not a diet but an entire lifestyle. Lots of lean grass fed meats and vegetables, very easy on the carbs and dairy. Of course the right eating habits alone only get you so far. You HAVE to incorporate exercise. For me, running is my go to. I love just slapping on my headphones and “running away” from the world for an hour or so everyday. It doesnt just keep me in shape. It keeps me sane.

karamellokoala :  I agree.If you have PCOS you should see your doc for meds to regulate your cycles. Once your system is back on track the weight should come off.
