Here is a little tip, I've always found it easier to lose weight as a "side effect". What i mean by that is that losing weight has always been better for me when it's a surprise. I think the best way to go about this is to start a training regimine, for a sport, or just for personal health. There are many sites on the net devoted to training and cross training for sports. Pick up and program and track your progress by things such as how long you can run and how much weight can you bench. That way, you get two self esteem boosters-progressing as far as health, and weightloss. Trust me, success is sweeter this way. Good luck!

What exactly can you eat in the Atkins Diet? Is that a good diet? I was thinking of trying the Special K diet.. But I don't know which one of the two can make you lose more weight. Somebody please respond and help!!

Hey! I'm really overweight and whenever I try to go on a diet, I get cravings for junk food and end up eating more chocolate than I would normally eat. I could handle the exercise but the food is the problem. If you have any tips for me or wanna be my diet buddy(girl 13-18)( we could help each other lose weight) email me at Rdazzyj@aol.com or post it on here.

To anyone out there who calorie counts, I need advice. Do you think its better to start with 1500 and work my way down as I lose weight, or is it better to just have 1200 each day? Also does anyone know anything about counting fat grams??? If anyone has any advice, please reply!

Ht. 5'9", Today: 269 lb (BMI %tile: 98) - Hey all-I have been to this site many many times before. I always tell myself that I am gonna stick to my diet but somehow it never works out. In english we did a skit and our teacher filmed it and showed up the tape. I know people say the camera adds 10 pounds but geez, it looked like it added a couple 100 pounds. I knew and know that i am fat, but seeing myself on there really broke me down. I weigh a whopping 269 lbs. I am pretty tall for my age (5ft 9)and I have alot of muscles- especially in my legs so I don't look as big as my weight tells me I am. I love sports especially softball. So thats a good thing. I am really committed this time. I dug out my old weight watchers stuff. And I am trying to eat healthier at lunch- today I had a ham and cheese sub with fries(I know i know delicious but deadly) and a diet pepsi (real healthy i know)but it is better than a piece of pizza, fries, a regular pepsi and 2 cookies... well if ya'll have any tips just post at the bottom it will be really helpfull :) thanks

Start: 180 lb, Today: 140 lb - Hey, I've gone from 180 lbs to 140 in four months with the Atkins diet. Its a low carb diet that allows you to eat as much as you want, as long as the food has little carbs. It's an easy diet, and I'm very excited. I've never looked better.

As requested and due to popular demand (wtf!), I'll add wut I've done as a dieting programme:Basically, I've cut down dramatically on all the fatty foods like chips and things; instead I go on more of an organic sort of theme and cut myself down to 1000calories a day at the most. Drinking water and eating vegetables is quite good too.Then, it's mainly exercise. I have to walk 4 miles a day to get to and from school, and then afterwards I always go swimming for about 2-3hours. I do weights as well, in the mornings. At the weekends I play rugby, and go out normally like all of my friends. And on sunday I try cycling.The trick is to keep being motivated and be strong enough to say no to any food that's irregular to my diet. Then, it's exercise a lot!
