Hi Leah,

Happpy New Year to you as well. Take one meal at a time. Drink plenty of water before you eat, it will help fill you up so you eat less. I've always believed it is better to eat small meals more often than 3 large meals a day.

Best Wishes~

Small meals IS the way to go!

I lost loads of weight, slowly, with this:

in the morning before noon, protein only (I did cottage cheese).

No Bread, pasta, or other processed grain foods. Ever.

And after lunchtime, anything reasonable is fair game. Eat cheese or pudding or whatever you want (within reason), but NO processed grain foods.

I lost 20 lbs but it took 6 months but I slowly changed habits. Still losing!

Having my weight go up and down like a yoyo has been painful to me. Health issues follow like and friendly puppy as my weight continued to go up! When I hit 150, I knew I had to get serious. I have been working with the 5/2 fast diet, where you eat normally 5 days a week, and cut your calorie intake to 500 calories a day for 2 days a week set in 2 meals that day. There are other medical benefits besides losing the weight - you can look up a lot of information online, or get the book by Dr. Michael Moseley for more details of the health benefits. So far, I have dropped down to 140, and expect to get back to my proper weight of 125 within another 3-4 months. No, it isn't a rapid loss diet (but then, a rapid loss diet has never stuck with me.
