I lost a couple of stone in weight and dropped about 3 dress sizes. I kept the weight off for a long while but eventually introduced carbs back into my lifestyle, with the inevitable result. I am now in the process of getting back onto the Atkins diet, with the understanding that I am "carb intolerant". My body cannot deal properly with carbs, so I will be healthier remaining on a low carb diet for the rest of my life but that is not actually a hardship! A number of other diets follow the same game plan. I understand the paleo diet is similar. Possibly also Dukan diet.

Everyone, it seems, is trying strange fads or ingesting crazy concoctions to lose weight or improve their health. They want a get slim quick fix, or an easy elixer of youth, or something else equally absurd instead of to take the time actually required to improve health. The latest fad is called...
