Ok, so I posted some things on Facebook about how I'm going to get back to diet and exercise, etc. An old high school friend messaged me about a diet she had gone on in which she lost 50 lbs. in about 3-4 months. I had noticed her pictures before in which she had lost a lot of weight and noticed how good she looked. I never asked her how she did it, I just assumed it was diet and exercise.
Anyway, back to the diet. She tells me she went to a doctor who does a special diet in which you also have to take a hunger suppressant. I'm no fan of quickie diets or taking pills and such. But out of curiosity I told her to go ahead and give me the phone number and address. I asked her what the diet consisted of and she said the doctor puts you on a 1200 calorie diet. The first month you eat nothing but fruits and veggies. The next month you are allowed to add in some carbs. He also requires you to walk 2 miles everyday.
Hmm, sounds a bit crazy to me. Not so much the calorie intake restriction because mine (according to SP) should be between 1200-1550 calories. But just the part about eating nothing but fruits and veggies! I need my carbs, which is probably why I am where I am now. lol That right there turned me off. I know what I can and can't do and I already know I won't be able to eat only fruits and veggies for a month. A co-worker of mine went on a three day fruit and veggie body cleansing thing and I said "no thanks" to that.
I'm still thinking about this. I'm not sure if this would even be something good to do or not.
