    Any good diets that work? I am 148 5'4" and I want to lose 20 pounds so I can be 128.

    Any food plans like what to eat for breakfast lunch and dinner that will help me achieve this goal? I had 2 hard boiled eggs this morning.

    I like the Slim Fast diet plan and have written a hub about it. I find that it's the easiest diet to follow .... for me anyways.

      The first week I lost 5 or 6 pounds. The following weeks it would vary from 1/2 pound to 2 pounds.

    That's exactly what I am and I cannot seem to get under 145.  Oh well, Just turned 50 and I just sit by the fat people at the beach cause there's always someone who looks worse.  Sorry, that was mean.  20 lbs is probably to big of a goal. Start with 5 and go from there because that's an attainable goal.

    I've written a couple of hubs about weight loss if you want to check them out. Detox is really important to help your body to lose the fat as well as eating healthy (little to no grain, healthy proteins, fruits and veggies) and being active.

    No cereal or junky stuff for breakfast. Eggs are the best thing you can eat for breakfast. You can have a protein shake for lunch. I've tried lots and only have one that I use and love. Dinner needs to be some meat and vegetables. Stay away from white starches like rice, bread, noodles, etc.

    Instead of Slim Fast, have a healthy protein shake. But, you've got to do research and find the right one. Whey proteins can cause problems for people's digestive systems. I use a vegan protein shake and it is delicious. It's almost like having a milkshake!

    Best ~ fitmom
