    This is as off topic as it gets, I know.

    But....

    Marie Osmand and Julian Barberie(sp?) are the only two people on that diet that have kept the weight off.

    John Kruk
    Mike Golic
    Dan Marino
    Chris " My most hated person in the world" Berman

    All the dudes put the weight back on.....

    Just an observation.

    Best thing to do is eat less and move more for a consistent period of time.

    Just count your calories.

    It's a complete gimic. The food looks large on television but those portions are extremely tiny and have far less calories than their real counterparts. You don't feel full and it requires discipline to remain on that diet.

    The truth is there is no easy way out. Losing weight is hard in the beginning and you have to adjust your lifestyle and mentality. The truth is Americans treat food like entertainment and it's a big part of our culture. if you want to lose weight, you have to stop seeing food as entertainment. You have to replace the pleasure you get with eating with something else you enjoy doing. I'm no a purist by any means but I was always thin until 28 and then I piled on about 40 lbs due to stress in my job; food was my only release and I stopped working out. I lost that weight but i had to get back into enjoying working out and being active. i also try to eat at home as much as possible during the wedk and not go overboard if i eat out.

    For example, I avoid KFC, Long John Silvers and go for Wendys. Avoid the Chimichangas and go with beef fajitas. Eat two slices of cheeze pizza instead of wolfing down 4 slices of pepperoni. Substitute diet drinks instead of regular full size drinks. Get fries with your burget but only eat 1 or 2 with each bite of your burger and throw the rest away. Cut down on carbs and refined sugars. Keep two days a week in which you indulge with whatever you want to eat but be good those other 5 days. Go for walks in your neighborhood after you eat dinner. It's a good way to spend family time talking because you bond and lose weight at the same time, plus you can walk your dog too.

    Oh yeah, get some sleep. Staying up late causes you to release the hormone grehlin which causes you to get hungry. Going to bed earlier prevents this release and you won't get the munchies in the middle of the night.

    It only sucks for about 2 weeks.

    Your not always going to be that hungry. Your body eventually will adjust and the hunger pains won't be as extreme as they are initialy.

    But for about 2 weeks you are going to be miserable.

    You just gotta plan your meals out before you eat and know every calorie that goes in your body and find some time to exercise.

    I used to weigh 308 pounds and im 235 right now. Im being very brief with my tricks on dieting but trust me if a food lover like me can drop a ton of weight anyone can.

    You just gotta have a plan and be focused and consistent with it.

    This is great advice and it is completely true. Your body and mentality will adjust to the healthier eating. You won't crave high fat, high carb foods. Plus, the more you work out, the easier it becomes and the more you enjoy it. It's funny how our minds work. Before I started this, I didn't think I could enjoy working out again and not craving fat laden foods but your body and mind adjust. Somebody else told me this and I thought they were full of #$$# but then I decided to stick it out. Yeah, for the week, I was miserable and I was going through withdrawls (I wanted to go to Wendys or McDonalds at night before I went to bed). After the first week, it started to get easier to resist these foods. After the second week, I lost my desire to eat like that. You will be miserable for 2 weeks but if you can stick it out for 2 weeks, you will be amazed by how easy it gets.
