The "Lose 150 pounds in 6 months" Diet
So last Friday I posted that picture of me from when I was on the Dr. Bernstein diet. After seeing that picture it trigured me to find a miracle diet. A diet where I could lose weight extremely fast. A diet where only the strong willed people could succeed. And for me, I have found that diet. One must note that this diet is only a temporary fix to help in my long term surgery plan. So after reading up on this I did find one diet that could fit my lifestyle. I stopped on a story on one of the low-carb forums which was entitled "I lost 150 pounds in 6 months". I started reading this and besically the guy does the same menu everyday for 6 months and he totals about 3-5g of carbs per day. THAT'S IT!!! After reading his daily food intake I saw why he had lost so fast and decided, I'm gonna try it. Today is my first day and I plan to do a full month of it to see the results. It's kinda tough for me to weigh myself because I'm too big for my scale but tonight I will take pictures and I will measure myself. So here's my meal plan.
- 1 Multivatamin
- 3 6g Fibre pills
- 2 hard boiled eggs
- Ham, Turkey or Chicken (lunch meats) with or without cheese
- 2 fillets of white fish or 1 chicken breast
No snacks, no desserts, no drinks. Just meat and water. I still want to throw in some veggies every now and again but that's basically it.
Lets hope it works and I can stick to it!!!
Let us know how it turns out!
As for Mr Speirman...If I remember well, his health status during the experience took quite a drop...A better role-model could be a good idea But you surely look like you are wise-enough not to do so!
Hang on dude!

You do need to be careful especially about your proteins. Since I had started the "cookie" diet after about a week my body went into a kind of "shock" in a way. I was at work and I was having very weird symptoms and found out it was lack of protein. So after 2 weeks I've stopped for two weeks and will start again but with some adjustments. You have to make it right for you.(oh yea...and my Dr. knows I'm doing this)
I also found out at my last Dr.'s apt that I'm anemic and have low potassium levels so my doc is helping me get those levels up before my surgery.
You don't want to jeopordize your surgery...so be careful if you do this.

It's not easy to lose weight or wait for surgery. I appreciate your willingness to jumpstart but maybe registering at Weigh****chers would be a better fit since it encourages the type of lifestyle adjustment we ALL�have to make post surgery (exercise and balance). It's also great to have a support system. I'm actually tagging along with my mom and sister to their meetings, eventhough I've got my secret weapon I�still need to LEARN�how to cook, eat, and exercise like a normal healthy person.
Best of luck with whatever you choose Derek :)

Thanks for the suggestion but "shake" diets are not for me. The only "shake" diet that I'll do is the Opti-Fast one 4 weeks before surgery. That's it! This diet that I'm on has really worked for me. I'm already down almost 12 pounds in just 7 days. People have to find what fits for them and this diet is fit for me.
