Actually a couple of days short of 1 month. Funny thing about this "diet" is that it opened my eyes to how bad the shit I was eating was. So far, not much exercise has been introduced. I wanted to see what I could do in the first month just by changing my eating habits. Results have pretty good so far. Yes, I'm a fatass....and yes, I will continue to update this thread as I move down the scale. The weight has come off pretty slowly compared to the other fad diets I've tried..but I fell like this is a better way to do this. I've taken a pic on 5/14 and a pic on 6/12...they will be posted at a later date. Starting weight: (I'm 5'9") 5-14-07 - 266lb 6-12-07 - 251lb (space for future updates) My meals pretty much look like this. Breakfast: 1 cup of coffee on the way to work and a bowl of oatmeal with dried fruit added to it. Lunch: Lean meat and green vegetables or sandwich on wheat with only turkey or chicken(lean meats), mustard, lettuce, low fat cheese Afternoon snack - Package of nuts(peanuts, almonds, pistachios, pecans, & hazelnuts) Dinner: Pretty much same as lunch. After dinner snack - fat free/sugar free pudding or fat free ice cream - I only eat these once or twice a week. I have one meal a week that I cheat on..eat pretty much whatever. Typically it's on Saturday. I need suggestions on bringing exercise into the picture. I know I will come to a point where I need to do it to take weight off.
