I am new to this site, only found it by accident. I have been on various diets.............still need to find the right one. Not really into calorie counting, but need to lose about a stone & a half. Half would be good before my holiday in 8 weeks time. Wish me luck!!!

I will be happy to share the secret:

Calorie counting - whether you are "into it" or not - works. I would HIGHLY recommend that you "get into" it. It's not harder than you make.

There is no "no-work" way to take control of your calorie intake. There is no easy way to get results without putting effort.

However, if you do put in the work, then you will reap the benefits from it, and it just might change your life.

Count the calories. Learn how to do it. It works.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Maybe think about your long term health than a quick holiday fix

To hit your goal exercise like crazy and starve yourself

Ten pounds in eight weeks sounds very doable. Hope you find what works for you.

Thanks, it's not a holiday fix. I have a goal to achieve, the holiday is a milestone marker. I do not intend to starve, I am unable to exercise as I did when I was younger due to injury. Good luck with your way.
