following: EnriqueVA's own diet
performance: losing 0.0 lb a week
I am trying to lose weight and stay under 200lbs. I went to a wopping 223 pounds in December 2011, started a custom diet in January 2012 and have lost about 25lbs since then by trying to keep carbs to a minimum, eating more protein and fiber, and favor fats over carbs. Carbs require insulin, insulin stops fat oxidization, if you reduce carbs to a minimum you will burn more fat.
I hate following structured diets like those that prescribe what 20 veggies I can eat, and what things I can't eat at all. What a pain!
I just watch what I eat and I try to eat the most fiber and protein (at least 75-100g/day), healthy fats (under 50g/day), and under 50g of carbs per day. If I get stuck I increase exercise and reduce carbs even more. I also cheat if I feel diet pain, at least once a week. I'm happy not forcing myself to do anything painful.
June 2012 Update: Now I'm 182lbs and I've changed my diet a little so I don't keep losing weight. Trying to remain between 180 and 185lbs.
