    Day 1/31:
    I have officially started my experiment. My hypothesis: if I eat 2 fruits, trail mix(mostly nuts, some marshmallows, raisins, MnM's, cheese nips, cereals), dinner(for every bite of meat, I eat 3 bites vegetables), drink only water and walk an hour everyday, then I will lose weight. Starting weight 223.6 lbs, BMI: 39. Wish me luck guys.

      Any attempt at losing weight is a good idea.  Almost anything you do for only 30 days won't kill you, although with your plan I suspect you might f@rt a lot smile

      I found that the best plan is to try and change elements of your lifestyle bit by bit.  Maybe get into the habit of walking to whrever every day instead of short bus rides or leave the car and go shopping for small things on foot.  Some kind of sport that you enjoy is good, from ping-pong to group aerobics.

      My best change was to banish snacks from my house and only eat at mealtimes.  I got used to it just before the fridge door wore out with constantly looking for snacks that were not there!

      Trail mix is a terrible idea. It's designed to provide lots of energy in a small package - which means it's easy to eat a huge amount of calories in only a few bites.

      You could eat three whole Lean Cuisine meals a day, and still eat less calories than one cup of trail mix.

      Trail mix is an example of a high density, low volume food.  That's the kind of food that makes you fat. To lose weight, you need to eat low density, high volume foods.

    that sounds like no where near enough calories....

    you will loose weight for sure, but you wont be healthy or able to maintian it at all. 


    this worked really well for me. I also exercised with the 8 minute abs tapes.

      You'll lose the weight but you won't keep it off.  I walk at least three times a week.  I've been watching my portions and making sure not to eat so late.  I also have laid off the fast food.  This has been working so far and  I've lost weight.  I try to incorporate a vegan diet, but I still have a small amount of meat.  Oh yeah and no sweets.  I eat fruit to knock off the sweets cravings.   Good luck.

    That trail mix isn't the most healthy meal replacement.  High in both sugar (chocolate, dried fruits) and fat (nuts).  the reason people eat it on the "trail" is to keep up their energy levels when they are trekking.

    Good luck Glow Girl!


    who said "that sounds like no where near enough calories...."

    That would all depend on how much trail mix, the amount of meat, and veggies she eats wouldn't it?

    I think you've got a good plan overall. The water intake and cutting out all other kinds of drinks will do you good. The walking will be a huge benefit. It is amazing how many calories you can burn in an hour. But, the food plan could use some help. Only because I think you will feel extremely limited and that could derail you. You could also go crazy eating trail mix (that stuff ain't low in fat or calories). I'm just sayin - that's what I would do. wink

    Good luck!!

    (There's been awful lot of gross talk about parasites, tapeworms, head bugs, and the like on the forums in recent days.  I'm starting to consider switching to the religion threads for awhile.   lol  )

    The best way to lose weight would be to eat more salad and to run on a regular basis.  If you eat a small salad at every meal and run 1 mile at least three times a week then you will notice a difference in not only your weight, but the way you feel.  I suggest this as then you don't have to limit your diet so drastically.

    The best way to lose weight is to ask yourself the following questions.

    - What are the things would my ideal slim me would do in a daily basis?

    - What are her interest?
    - where does she hung out? whit who does she hang out?
    - What does she like? and dislike?
    - How does she feel about the things that she about her self?

    Do this and than do all the things that you feel your ideal slim person would do.

    And the most important part is forget about your food consumption and diet, because when you are dieting you are constantly thinking about the food and remembering the food so it doesn't help that much, its like punishment.

    Same goes with the what I told you, if you keep asking yourself the things that I mentioned above and really think about them and feel them in your body, the more often you do it the more naturally your mind is gonna adapt to a way of living that you being slim will come naturally.

    For me personally if i diet It wouldn't work with me because I trust my body and my feelings and whatever my body tells me, I do it. If it tells me to eat something I will eat it or when it says stop, I will stop eating no questions asked.

    So Good Luck smile
