Portion control is just as important as the amount of carbohydrates (starches). Take 1/3 less rice than you're used to and gradually get you're body used to eating less... not overnight... not all at once, but over the course of a month.

Fewer carbohydrates...
More vegetables to fill in...
No carbs after 6:00 p.m. (you're body will turn carbs directly to fat while you sleep)
A positive attitude and explore creative but pleasant ways to alter your diet with the results always in mind as motivation.

I've been losing steadily for a while now, total lost is about 60lbs!! I've made bad choices this week with food and exercise so tonight's dinner I'm getting back on the bandwagon. I'm 155lbs, goal is about 140.

No secret diet or anything, just burning more calories than I consume. eating foods that are good for me and cutting out the junk (fast food, hfcs, etc). And I exercise.

I have been following a diet for 4 weeks now. At first it was very hard specially because I am the only one in my house tring to loose weight. So I am cooking special dinner for me and also cooking another dinner for my family each day. But now I got used to it. I have only lost 11 Ibs. My goal is 30 Ibs. Wish me luck

I am in the process of losing quite a bit. This time I decided to concentrate on eating a normal amount of calories and not going on a highly restrictive plan. This with some exercise is working. Also eat a lot of citrus because the activity involved in peeling them takes some time.

I had lost 15 lbs between August and mid-November of last year, 10 of them are now back. (I stopped walking when the weather got cold and they all came back). So I am now trying to loose those 10lbs by the end of April and another 25 lbs by the beginning of August.

I eat grapefruit because it keeps me busy for awhile lol. I use a serrated knife to cut off the peel, the pick out the juicy sections with my fingers and leave the tough bitter membrane behind. Personally I like grapefruit with no sugar. Obviously this wouldn't work for someone who needs piles of sugar ;)
