Anyone on WW? How is it working out for you?

Diets have never worked for me, although I never tried WW! I don't consider LCHF eating a diet, as I consume as much food as I please, unlike most diets!

I have lost over 70lbs. since 2015, most of it during the first 12 months.

Good Luck

I was on WW years ago, and I remember that it worked. I don't know if WW is still on the point system, but one of the reasons I quit was because I was always hungry!

I just wanted to jump start my weight loss before my next doc appt. I lost zero lbs at my last doc appt. I didn't gain, but I didn't lose. I'm eating LCHF. Maybe I need to increase my fat intake, but I an only eat so much avocados and coconut oil.

Rather than go on a starvation diet with probably more carbs than your diabetic body can handle, you could explore intermittent fasting. There's also the "fat fast" which several members on the forum a few years ago did. The name is misleading. I means that you eat mostly fat, very few carbs, and no protein for I think 3-5 days. I'll try to find the thread and add it to this post.

Edit: Here it is.
https://www.diabetesforum.com/diabet...-fat-fast.html

You should read through the entire thread to get the most information about it and be able to judge if it would be something for you to do.

Thank you for the link VeeJay. I wonder what happened to all those people who were on the fat fast. They had booku stars, but I don't see them posting anymore.

I looked at it, and it's probably something I could do for a day .

I do fast just about every evening from 8:30 pm until the next morning when I have breakfast. It's usually about 12 hours. I've also increased my cardio. Hopefully, I will show some kind of weight loss on my next visit.

Have a great day!

You could extend your overnight fast to 16 hours. 16:8 is a typical IF. You in effect skip breakfast. I've done that in the past and had good results. I'm working toward doing that again, maybe 3 days a week.

I'm going to WW meeting for support, but I don't use their point system. Fruits = Zero Point is ridiculous! I'm following Keto to drop the last 30 pounds so I'm WW lifetime member, I'm attending WW for free now.

I should think the accountability and support with WW would be helpful.
