I only needed to lose 25kg, which I lost in 22 weeks, but he lost 49kg in 6 months & 2 weeks! And, like me, he's much healthier for it as well.

In 2001 I lost 45kg (from 125kg) in 6 months just eating less (600-1200kcal/day) and trying to balance my food mainly in terms of vitamins and microelements. And after being obese for so many years I also felt indeed like a new man (almost literary sometimes when some of my friends were not able to recognize me on the street) . I did all the basic health screening directly after I got back to more usual diet and the results were better than before. My bad eating habits got pretty limited but in few years some brand new appeared (very easy in SG) so be careful. Fortunately I never went back to such high level of obesity but needed to put myself back on diet to lose some kilograms. I am doing it right now and again the same fashion. No exercise, just ~800kcal/day, started less than one month ago and lost already 5kg. What is most important to me and the main reason for such pretty harsh diet is that I can see the progress practically every single day so I have a very good motivation to continue.

Having said all this I tend to agree that doing at least limited exercises would be probably more reasonable for a number of reasons. One of them is that if you "shrink" too rapidly and not exercise your skin will not manage to follow. Not a particularly most desired aesthetic effect one would like to achieve :-)

This is true, but if you have balanced your hormone levels in the process, you would be surprised at the shrinkage. And I had contined shrinkage for almost 12 months after the programme. Unfortunately, at 62 your body's elasticity isn't what it used to be, so even if I manage to regain my 6pac nobody is ever gonna see it unless I get a tummy tuck. Franky, at my age, that's the least of my problems. :cool:

What used to be muffin tops over 40" Levi's is now slight loose fold over 31" levis. I can live with that. :P

Like I said, I am a new man! \:D/

What do you mean by this? Have you actually had your hormone profile monitored and adjusted if needed or your diet was just designed with such hormone effects awareness in mind?

Amazing results with great effort

Wow SMS....

I'm so happy and excited for you. I know it's never easy to start a strict diet for a big guy and often, many are defeated by the devil within, which applies to mortals like my boyfriend. From a mere 68, he has ballooned to over 85 kgs the past year. I think he has made his statement as far and wide as I can possibly think healthy by any measurement. I would really love to hear back from you and if I have to pull him by the ear to go along, why then I definitely would!

Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing. :wink:

SMS, sounds like the perfect diet, and great job at seeing it through to the end!

What kind of foods/meals are we looking at throughout the day? I take it alcohol is a big no-no... :)

All fresh, unprocessed foods and you are right, alcohol is a no-no while on the programme.

Congrats SMS on loosing and keeping the weight off. I have been fighting the weight battle since I was 30. Six days a week on the Lifecycle is the only thing that works for me.
