you can eat whatever you want, as long as you keep your calories around 1500 per day, you will lose weight. To maintain, you can eat more depending on your activity level.

No need for fad or trendy diets.

no dieting for me!i cant diet as i love food,and i love desserts,what i do is that i eat big breakfast,very small lunch(usually based on just salads and fruits),a cup of milk in the evening and a normal portion of dinner.But i burn 500 calories everyday except sundays.Most ppl complement me on my weight and they have difficulty believing im a mother of 3 kids.

Cooking appliance is also important. I’m using my new Secura oven to grill fish, beef, chicken, pork, veggies everyday for my p90x diet. Works great! The amazing thing is you can see how much fat and oil we don’t have to eat during cooking. I recommend everyone if you want to loose weight, reduced the cal, and healthier food, should get one. You should not cook your beef steak with butter or oil in the pan.
I already lost 25 lbs in the past 3 months. I think this oven is helping a lot with my diet.

Bon Courage guys

This is strange. At the beginning of June, I purchased a new, cordless-electric Black & Decker lawnmower. This year has been a good one for grass. I was cutting my lawn twice a week. I lost a few pounds. I then tore the meniscus in my right knee (hope to have surgery on it in another week or so), so I've been laid up for the entire month of July. And yet, I've lost 16 lbs. this month. Does walking with a crutch really use up that more energy than does plain walking? I know I'm getting closer to the eight hours of sleep per night that I've been telling my wife I need for the last 25 years. Maybe that's how I'm losing the weight.

Sorry to hear! Yes, walking with a crutch uses up more calories. For good cardio, get a wheelchair and tool around in that! That's exhausting!

I've been losing weight, cutting down portions and eliminating processed foods. Drinking lots of water and tea.
