Olga, don't get discouraged. If you are like me you did not put the weight on overnight. I joined Weight Watchers not to long ago. The weight is coming down but slowly. I have found that not only do I have to count my calories but I have to do some sort of exercise to help the weight loss along. Keep trying.

Olga, I saw Dr. Oz on Oprah discussing the "diet." From some of what he said, I think he mentioned that everyone loses at a different rate and not necessarily immediately. Have faith.

Watch out with that water consumption. A young woman died this past weekend as a result of drinking a gallon of water in an hour. It was part of a contest on a radio show. Drinking water is good, but don't overdo it.

No MD hear...However there "tons" of fad diets out there...designed mostly to make money selling books/foods/pills/snake oil/ etc.

I recommend that before beginning any diet/exercise plan (really a change in lifestyle) one should see a family doctor for advice...

Most of us overweight folks just simply need to eat say 1800 calories or so and burn up 2500 calories..and we will lose weight...However my problem for years was that I ate 2500+ cal. and burned up 1800 cal ..thus gaining weight.
So in a lot of ways ....it is just that simple...Eat less...burn more.

Obviously folks with health issues diabetics/heart diseases/etc. have to apprroach weight loss and exercise from a different perspective.....Bottom line...It is always the best bet to start by seeing your family physician...That way you are in a better position to know what is "right for you".

Take care....

Well said Uncle Bob. I have heard that exercise and activities will keep the weight off.
Our park district has an athletic club that only cost a few dollars. (about $25 a month/no contract) There sure is a lot of nice people who go there. Now days you can wear shorts and sweat pants. I like that.

Some people join the walking clubs. The eagles have returned to the Illinois River area and people go there to take pictures.

Outside of going to a sporting event or shopping, there's not too much to do in the evening hours here in Central Illinois. Maybe it's the time to organize all your gear for the summer and plan a vacation or even a mini weekend vacation.

Olga, I agree with Uncle Bob. If you are enjoying the diet...DO IT. If you follow the instructions don't be concerned with your immediate loss. And I do think checking with your Doctor is important.

Don't be discouraged by losing a pound a week. That is great progress. Your first couple of weeks will more then likely be water weight. But after that period if you can continue with a pound a week, then you are doing great.

Remember it took you a while to put on those pounds, they don't just fall back off again. There is no quick solution to weightloss. Consistency and determination are what you need.
