    Shinobi,

    Along with your "dieting," I call it eating healthy but I was wondering if you have incorporated weight training into your regiment? I am not weighing myself this round but I have lost two inches in my waist line over the last two months and that is strongly because of eating healthy and weight training with some cardio mixed in. I also found that using quality protein supplements helps out as well, such as Optimum Nutrition's Gold Standard Whey Protein and Gold Standard Casein Protein. The best part about Casein protein is that you take it before you go to bed and it very slowly is absorbed into your system, which keeps your metabolism at a higher rate than normal while you sleep.

    Keep in mind you need to find a way of eating for the rest of your life that will help you keep that weight off and keep you interested in eating that way.

    This time around I haven't done any working out. I tend to respond very well to low carb dieting. I'm not following a specific diet to the tee, but if I had to categorize it, it would be Paleo. I'm trying to stay away from grains and dairy. I have a lot of digestive issues and so far they have all but disappeared after eating this way.

    Lately I've been allowing myself to carbs in small amounts. I seem to be maintaining my current weight loss, but I don't seem to be dropping any additional weight. That's fine with me because even though I need to loose about 30 more pounds, I feel pretty good as is and want to make sure I can maintain this weight loss.

    I use to work out at a gym 3 to 5 days a week and did the supplementation and all that. Now I'm just trying to work on what I put in my mouth first and when I hit a point where I'm not loosing any weight at all, then I think I'll start exercising again to increase my metabolism.

    My fear however is that I'm at a burnout stage with dieting in general. I'm getting tired of eating the same 5 things so that's why I want to spice it up a bit. I think I'll buy a low carb cookbook and give that a try. I read some reviews about the South Beach cookbooks and may purchase the kindle versions for like 10$. Does anyone have recommendations for cookbooks?

    When I started paying attention to my eating and trying to get healthy again I checked out many "diets" found fault with them all. That said I don't have food allergies or metabolism issues, I just ate bad food. Looking at the plus and negs on these diets that exclude huge food groups I found they where more dangerous than the weight they peeled off people. Just be careful on what your doing for the long term, some diet authers died from complications that could be easaly directed to their diets. Just be carefull.

    That said what worked best for me was to cut out processed foods. Sodas were the first to go, than anything with a GMO, and so on. I found new ways to cook the foods I liked excluding nothing. I eat bacon regularly, in smaller portions and from good sources if I use up the stuff I make. When I tallied up the nutritional make up of what I was eating vs how I'm eating now, I have to add more of the things Doc say I should be watching out for lol. She tells me I need to keep my salt under 2k... my daily intake without adding any is under 500... I had to start adding salt lol. In that first year I lost 50 pounds and have not gained any of it back. I still eat burgers at a select few places and very rarely just to satisfy that craving.

    I fell 100% better today than I did a year and a half or 2 years ago when my BP sky rocketed, 230 and 150's forget the order .. (or was always that high for many years...) now my BP is well inside norms and I'm able to get the doc looking into getting me off the low dose pills Hopefully I will not have to renew the last bottle

    Loosing the weight is good but do it carefully, no one needs to loose another friend

    I'd really like to add some heat to the things I eat. Should I just dice up some jalapeno peppers and throw them in then I am sauteing the veggies?

    I will also do green beans, but they are from a can. Can I take fresh green beans and saute them?
    In regards to heat jalapeŮos, serranos, Sriracha sauce, tony Chachere's Cajun salt. Good luck. You are motivating me to do my eight minute abs by passion4profession again, and I need to walk my dog more.

    When I did body for live a few 10+ years ago, I read that a low carb diet is bad for your kidneys. I don't remember where I read that but I think it has some merit to it.

    What Dwarvenchef has said makes sense to most problems and to weight loss. Don't think of it as a "Diet" but as a life time learning experience.

    Also Gratz on getting off the meds chef.

    Last "diet" I did was trying to see six pack abs for summer. Greek yogurt, Kashi go lean cereal with protein powder, cottage cheese with pineapple, terriyaki chicken breasts with rice, and lots of water. Lots of weight lifting, picnic table lifting, abs workouts, push ups, walking, jump rope, etc. you feel better and have more energy working out consistently.

    I agree with everything you all are saying. What I am doing really is lower carb. I use to eat nothing but fast food. Ice cream or cookies daily and needless snacking. The carbs I'm eating is coming from nuts and veggies. But I've also allowed myself to eat some pasta or baked potato here and there.

    My next step is to start working out on a regular basis. Once I am doing that I'll increase the protein and carbs.

    Today at the store I picked up some peppers, Salsa Verde, mushrooms, and a few other things. I'm going to try my hand at some stir frys and jazz up some of the things I am already making.
