Hello,
I am a 56 year old woman and have lost 42 pounds in the past 8 weeks. During HCG injections I lost 30 and since I quit the HCG shots 4 weeks ago, I have lost 12 more. My program?

1. Calorie counting 1200 calories per day.
2. NO flour / NO sugar

I am grateful to God for the results. I can do all things through HIM. I want my life to be defined by more than just my weight.

I belong to Jesus, and am married to a wonderful man and have children & grandchildren that I adore. I have been a professional speaker and PR specialist and have built successful businesses. I have delivered presentations before large crowds including media & political dignitaries. Now, I am disabled, in large part because of my weight. My knees have worn out and are bone on bone. I can no longer do the work I love, the work God created me to do. But, I WILL!

Join me on this journey of a lifetime and let's see what we can discover together.
Here's to a great week of weight loss,
Cindy (aka Muffin)

I complement you on the no sugar - no flour comments. I too avoid added sugar at all costs, Note, I said added sugar, I do not avoid naturally occurring sugars. I went through the Sweet-n-low, Equal, Splenda process but each of those have drawbacks too. I've begun using Stevia and found no ill effects except the fiber in Stevia in the Raw makes me fart a lot. So I decided to grow my own Stevia and make liquid sweetener out of it.

I also could not agree with you more about flour, however to be more specific Gluten. I gave up as much of it as humanly possible but it seems impossible to get totally away from it. That left a huge dietary gap in that it excluded bread, pasta, cereals, pancakes. I've successfully filled that gap by making my own Oat Flour by simply putting oats in the blender, it works great and tastes better too. For pasta I found many rice substitutes in the Gluten free section in Walmart. For bread I use wraps or tortillas. Since abandoning wheat (gluten) I have a lot more energy and my weight loss rate has increased too!

In any case you're certainly on the right track in my opinion, good luck!

Greg
