What allowed me to succeed this time when I had battled obesity unsuccessfully for more than 5 decades? One mistake I made over and over was eating too little. I'd go on extremely calorie restricted programs. The liquid protein diet that made me the sickest was probably 300 calories a day. Others I tried were 600 calories; probably the healthiest one was 1000 calories. I definitely feel better and have more success when I'm eating in the 1200-1700 calorie range. It truly is a lifestyle, not a temporary-restrictive-punitive diet.
