I read about this today, and it seems pretty straightforward and sensible (like all of these things, I guess). The idea is to eat low-calorie, high-volume foods that fill you up even though you’ve had fewer calories.
Here’s a US link and a UK link.
It has some good reviews, and just thought I’d share. Perhaps I’ll get the book when I get my next vouchers and report back.
Note: the authors call it a “weight-management plan” rather than a “diet”.
I appear to be stuck at 170, so I’ve not even hit 12st yet. Perhaps this is the weight I’m supposed to be.
I still want to lose a few more pounds, so I’m targeting 164. This would give me a BMI of 23.5, and bring me back under 12st (a weight I haven’t been for over 10 years). I’m not setting a timetable on this, although I may if there’s another sprint.
I’m back up to 178 (which is still 6 pounds below where I was when I started), probably due to the fact that I’ve not being paying much attention to what I’ve been eating (apart from in Walt Disney World, where considerable attention was paid to eating a lot).
So, once I’ve eaten these Bottlecaps, I’ll start paying attention to my diet again. ;-)
I’ve lost 4 pounds since I set myself a proper target. Current weight: 175 pounds.
This post popped up in my blog reader earlier, which discusses a book about a diet where “you could lose weight by eating dinner for breakfast”.
You eat like a king in the morning, a prince at lunch, and a pauper at dinner.
The author claims to have over lost 150 pounds and then maintained that weight for 6 years.
It’s an interesting idea, though I don’t understand why reversing meals this way causes weight loss. That said, I am aware that if I eat breakfast (large or small) I become a lot hungrier, sooner. So perhaps there is some merit to it.
I doubt I’ll experiment with this (although I feel like I should) because I am absolutely not a morning person!
I think I’m going to try and get to 170 before I get to WDW (Boma Boma Boma!). Unfortunately, that means I need to lose 9 pounds.
Here goes nothing.
I remembered to weigh myself for the first time in about a month today, and I’ve lost another couple of pounds.
I think I’ve figured out the secret to this goal (for me, at least): when I’m productive, I forget to eat. So, all I need to is get better at this and this, and I’ll magically lose weight!
Sounds easy, except those other two goals have been on my list for well over a year and are my most cheered – yet I’m still no closer to achieving them, and that’s even after changing “stop procrastinating” to “procrastinate less”.
All of which makes me think I shan’t be losing any more weight any time soon.
