Something to keep in mind is that your bodies natural preferred fuel for your cells is CARBS. The problem is that most of us have spent years over doing it.

We also have to remember on here that weight loss is a goal for many of us, but GLUCOSE LEVEL CONTROL is key.

Some think that my carb intake daily is more than I need. (45 per meal - 15/30 per snack) But I am losing the desired weight in the desired way and my sugar is under control.

I am becoming a big fan of the ADA recommendations, simply put, because for me it works. I am losing a pound a week and my sugar levels are under control.

That IS the goal...or so I believe.

Feeling deprived is all in OUR HEADS
thats why, we should start a meal plan by just eating less of what we are accustomed to

and over time, as we find our what foods are more deleterious to our health we can eliminate them

EG,
I lost 8 lbs in 30 days by NOT eating CHEESE
I substituted SOY cheese which has 40 calories instead of 200 per slice
Cut out SODA, and JUICe drinks
Cut down on BREAD-
unless STONE GROUND WHOLE WHEAT
or I found out that Rye & pumpernickel are LOW on the glycemic index
Anything WHITE like Rice, potatoes, etc

NOW, I do EAT the above mentioned foods,
but maybe ONCE a day, and not with every meal

Each Meal can be a part of what you used to eat for eg.

Have your cereal in the AM
lunch can be a salad, or tuna, salmon,etc
Dinner can be MEAT, Fish, or chicken
but keep the SIDES to a MINIMUM

Hope some of that helps
Lost 30 lbs, but it does not come off fast
Dr said to lose a pound a month, and it stays OFF because
1. not deprived of what I like
2. not starving
3. taking a Compound called
glucomanan which helps me get full faster and stay full longer

best wishes
Jay

I know, you are making a point...

Default The Proven Way

You probably already heard it: Eat Less, Move More.

Count calories - 1500 if you are 90# overweight, walk/run at least one mile per day, wear a pedometer, and shoot for 10,000 steps per day. You will be amazed at how well and how much better you feel - soon you'll e addicted.

Good Luck!

How can I not wear the ones I adore...moreover the new look is getting me mad (with the comments from my friends). I know quite a few ways to start losing weight??.but I don?t really feel that, with so many people failing using these methods that I will make it through. Does anyone know a proven way to reduce the weight?

Please help me?..this is killing me!!!

Vasusie is right
but start slowly
for someone who is accustomed to their weight aover 200 lbs, cutting calories to 1500 can be a monster to acvieve
BUT
start counting calories and listing daily what you eat for one week.
then lok back and start cutting out what
yuo can do without the next week
Keep doing that until yuo can get under 2000
calories and yes WALK about a mile day.
It does not have to be a power walk at first
but get started
more later

You might have to build up to walk 1 mile a day. I was doing it and then I fell and fractured my bone by my eye and some facial bones. I had to rest for a few weeks so my fractures would heal.

Now, I have to build up to walking 1 mile a day. I prefer walking 2 miles a day. I will probably only be able to start with 1/2 mile. You definetely need a pedometer to know if you are meeting your goal. You also have to keep it up every day. When you start missing days, it is hard to get started again.

If you need to lose weight, I recommend walking 4 miles. I lost a lot of weight doing just that. I am now down to my normal weight.
