Curious as if anyone else is dieting as a new years resolution? Or possibly already on a diet as a lifestyle change etc.

I want to lose about 20lbs that ive gained over the year eating out, cooking gourmet food and enjoying too many goodies over the holidays.

This year I am doing the Rice Diet. I had never heard of the diet, I just happened to be on a chinese/vietnamese kick and i already had a rice cooker..so why not? The diet claims to cleanse while losing weight. I accidently found the diet while looking for recipes.. its been around awhile.

Basically I am going to eat 1 cup of rice a day (its alot of rice once you cook it) then top it with cabbage, onions, broccoli and mushrooms. I had all this stuff already in the fridge. I stir fry the vegetables in a bit of soy sauce and teriyaki, no oil.. so far it doesnt stick and i love the way it tastes.

My snacks will be fruits, raisin bran or oatmeal.

I feel great and am sleeping a bit better..I know its not the perfect diet and I dont plan on doing it forever..just a full detox of sort.

Pros- Cheap. I feel less sluggish, not thinking about what i want for dinner..i already know what im having. Grocery shopping easier.

Cons- Not much if any protein, calcium or iron.

Last year I did the keto diet- that was an emotional roller coaster, it took me a month to get dialed in, i had alot of energy..didnt sleep well at all. I lost 30lbs and my testosterone must have been way up..hint. I would do keto again as punishment or if i had a goal to be a certain weight..but it just sucked.

Best diet i have done where i felt the best was in college as an experiment in class. My roomate and I only ate pinto beans or baked beans.. we chose them because they tasted best out of the can. We also could eat raisin bran, apples, oranges and bananas. We lived on the toilet but lost 20lbs in a month. Felt great, looked great. I admit it got boring after a week..smelling the pizzas coming in the dorm was brutal.

Lets hear your diets and goals.

I'd forget the raisin bran since it has a lot of sugar in it if you look at the nutrition label. Instead get some bran flakes which has a lot less simple carbs from sugar. As far as the diet goes give it a try. I saw a guy recently eating a pretty good size portion of rice with mixed veggies and he's as thin as a rail.

1) Drink lots of water
2) Get rid of soda
3) Eat lots of vegetables and fruits
4) Avoid processed foods
5) Avoid fast food

If you can do the above, most folks would lose weight, have better blood pressure, and be generally healthier.

And exercise at least 150 mins per week. I do 240 mins per week. Four days walking for an hour. Plus some other exercise like pushups 25x, squats 38x and crunches 200x, 2-3 days per week. Which reminds to fill up my big cup with water.

Don't diet, just don't over eat and stick to eating healthy the rest of your life. I've never been overweight, but I eat much healthier ever since I got married. My wife is a type 1 diabetic. We eat a Mediterranean diet. She is 5'8"-121 and I'm 6'2"-165.

add some legumes for protein if that's a concern.

Going on a diet? There's no such thing. Changing your diet to lower your calories will help you lose weight. What you eat will help you feel better. That is, so long as you're not naturally disposed to weighing more (physiologically or hormonally). I've had a lot going on recently, causing me to not have as much of an appetite. I still snack at night, but have no desire (receive no pleasure) from eating anything tasty during the day. I've lost 15# in the past couple of months, while being MUCH LESS active than usual.

The trouble with a diet like that is you will soon tire of it. Try smaller portions of your regular food and avoid the obvious fattening ones. If you leave the table a little hungry, the hungry feeling goes away in half an hour. Good time for a little walk, unless you live in the North.
Good luck, Keep us informed of your progress. We're with you in spirit.

THIS^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
My wife has been on the weight watchers program since mid-August. She has lost 32 pounds-I have lost 12 just eating the way she does. All these fad diets-or only eating cabbage and rice-whatever are all plans for just gaining the weight back. You need to eat a HEALTHY BALANCED Diet and this is what Weight Watchers teaches.


The wake up call for her was her annual Doctor's visit and some advice from him.

I've gained a few pounds several times by not paying attention during life changes. Always able to lose weight simply by not eating anything after supper.

Exercise a wee bit of self-control and a person doesn't have to subject himself to fad crash diets.
