DIET is a pain!

I love cooking, even though im no chef. I adore looking up recipes and trying them, even though all the recipes I search for include the word "easy" in some part of their title haha. I've been on a diet for one month, I finished already fortunately. I did not ate a gram of sugar during my diet, only natural sugar like the one in bananas. I also didnt eat any trans fat or saturated fat during this month. It was a tough month but it was worth it, went from 90 pounds to 78 pounds :) Im a guy by the way, dont think im a girl because of my weight haha, I just have a speedy gonzales metabolism!
Anyways, what I missed the most during my one month diet was baking my delicious desserts !! That was kind of a torture :(

If you have any story related to diets or you are on a diet and wish to share something, GO AHEAD :)

Are you trying to achieve weight loss or are you dieting for other health reasons?

I lost a pile of weight a few years ago. I pretty much ate everything I usually do except I just cut back on lots of starches, creamy substance, breads. I ran about 4-5 days a week, walked the dog for half an hour every day. I lost about 30 lbs in 4 months. I would stick to an Atkins "type" diet meaning prefominantly one of meats, fruits, and green veggies, two to three litres of water a day.....

I lose weight when I cut out the bread & wine. Luckily I don't have a sweet tooth.

OMG, one of my legs weighs 78 pounds! Nall, I can only imagine that you are a young man. Starting to diet at 90 pounds...Just run everywhere you go. Running is great for you and I've never seen a fat runner.

I don't diet but I do watch my weight. I put on weight every time I cut down on my routine physical activities, whatever those may be. It's easier for me to keep my weight where I want it by staying physically active rather than trying to watch what I eat.
