Nancyanne was right! Try cutting back on carbs and have them early in the day so your body can burn off the sugars efficiently. Only eat whole grains and complex carbs and stay away from the white monster.(white sugar, white flour, white bread). This should get your body fat levels decreasing in no time.

Any eating plan that leaves entire food groups out is not a good one! Your body needs the nutrients in fruits, complex carbs, fats, and dairy. When I am cutting in I eat lesser amounts of carbs, fruits, and dairy, but I never cut them out completely.
What your friend is telling you WILL take weight off of you. It's by a method called Ketosis- It forces the liver to burn fat for fuel in the abscence of glycogen from carbs. However, this is extremely hard on the internal organs and can have a myriad of negative effects, from decreased vision in the immediate and short term to liver damage and kidney stones and other things in the long term. Additionally, as soon as you eat some carbs at the end, you will go right back to what you weighed before.
It's your body so it's your choice, but forwarned is forearmed.
A good friend of mine out of state who is big in the fitness idustry said that i should try to eat nothing but lean meats and veggies for 2 weeks and see what it does to my body. I have a goal to meet in about 2 months, and i need to burn lots of body fat, but want sculpted lean muscle mass. Has anyone tried this or know anything about it? Really don't want to get burned out on eating the same thing all day every day!!
