I have been eating less than 100g of carbs per day, and less than 25g of sugar per day. I have lost over seven pounds in two weeks. Just be sure to drink plenty of water, eat vegi's and fruit, and eat meats and cheese. I suggest unsweetened tea to stay busy.
I started out by replacing my coffee creamer with sweetener. Then I started drinking diet cola instead of regular cola.

I use Oikos or Fage plain Greek yogurt (1 C), & add 1 tsp of real vanilla extract, two packets of Splenda, & 2 tbsp of Polaner Sugar-Free Strawberry Preserves with Fiber. It stirs up into a very thick, yummy, satisfying dessert with very high protein, low carbs, and low calories.
Oikos and Fage, in that order, are the two yogurts with the highest protein and lowest carbs.
Strict Diet Regimen for a Few Days w/Weight Loss Being its own Motivation
After 8 months of struggling to get back on track and stay there for more than a few days, I finally found what works for me... I put myself on a regimented diet with very low carbs for a specific time period (The 17 Day Diet). I stopped craving carbs and saw a fast weight loss on the scale. Finally losing a significant amount of weight in a few weeks has made all the difference. I am back...and here to stay!! 140
