I had actually gotten up to 158 since setting up this account. That was too close to 160 for me. NONE of my clothes fit, but I refuse to by a bigger size. I read an article by the guy who does the Biggest Loser that said the easiest and most effective way to start losing weight is to stop eating carbs after 1 pm. I can still eat my toast and pasta/sandwich, etc. for breakfast and lunch, but, after lunch, NO CARBS. That's it. I have only been doing that since Monday of this week and have lost six pounds. I hope to get in the 140's by Monday morning. I haven't seen them in a long time!

That claim is quite unlikely:meals timing has no effect on weight loss or gain, the only thing that counts is calories deficit if you have actually lost 6 pounds in 6 days that is most likely due mostly to water loss rather than fat loss since it is impossible to loose that much fat in such a short time.
If you have stopped eating carbs or greatly reduced their consumption you might be depleting the glycogen in your muscles hence the water that is associated with it. That is only a temporary effect that will revert as soon as you start eating normally again.

Food combining is a valid way to loose weight. Any of us who have lost weight with low carb not counting calories can attest to that. I've read Suzanne Somers' books about her plan called "somersizing" and it has worked for me in the past. Whole grain, good carbs w/no fat in am (like oatmeal for bkfast)...fruit only by itself 2 hrs before/after other food) No sugar, no refined foods that is what "normal" should be...and that of course is the problem when we go off plan...

By eliminating carbs after 1 pm, you are likely eliminating a lot of extra calories as well. I can see how that would work. I once tried this diet called 'The Carbohydrate Addicts Diet." With this diet you choose 1 meal a day that you eat carbs. The rest of the day you dont eat any carbs (except maybe some extremely low-carb foods such as in certain veggies.) But in that 1 carb meal, you are allowed to eat ANYTHING you want for 1 hr. This includes cake, brownies, whatever. Of course it's recommended that you start off with a healthy meal before you hit the dessert, but you can eat whatever you want for 1 meal, 1 hr. per day. It sounds crazy, but it did work for me. I lost 10 lbs. in 2 wks.

I think the positive thing about eliminating carbs after 1 pm is that you are training yourself to avoid high calorie snacks that are loaded with carbs. I doubt you could get rid of all carbs - you should be eating veggies and they do have some carbs in them. I think a lot of people, myself being one, eat most of their calories after 1 pm, so if you strive to control those, then regardless of how you do it, you will likely lose weight. Cutting out carbs after 1 pm affects an afternoon snack, dinner, and evening snack/dessert - so that's a lot of opportunities to reduce calories (carbs or otherwise). It's not the carbs that made you overweight - it's the type of carbs and excess. Oh well, whatever works for you. I've never been a big pasta, rice, or bread eater, I could probably easily go months without any - but still ended up obese. My downfall was cookies, cakes, ice cream which I now only eat once in a blue moon b/c I just don't crave them or want to spend the calories on them b/c I know they won't fill me up. I prefer to not be hungry.

I can believe that works. No sugar/fat/starchy desserts, no pasta and bread after 1pm. that's a lot of calories out of the picture.

whatever works for one's lifestyle is ok, but the fat loss has nothing to do with food combining or timing per se. If food combining and timing help you to eat less calories then that can work otherwise it won't. It is clear that as it has already been noted, if one is able to cut all carbs for over half of the day, then the total calorie intake is likely to go down provided that there is no overcompensation somewhere else.

low calorie restaurant lunches?
Lettuce like THAT would be fine. That doesn't sound bad at all! Except we don't have that restaurant here. Probably any place can make something like that though! Thanks for the advice :)
