Current Weight:(12 Jan 15) 335.0 lb
Goal Weight:251.3 lb
following: The GI diet
performance: losing 10.5 lb a week

I'm 33, have a beautiful and supportive wife and two baby boys.

I work long hours in an office, and used that as an excuse for many years..... but now I'm on a mission to be healthy and fit for my family.

I'm back on the Low GI diet, which I did a couple of years ago and saw great results.

Getting Started
Rick Gallops book is excellent. I really didn't know where to start, but I followed the GI diet to the letter and just 4 months later I feel like a new man. Actually, I felt great after the first week.... but once you've started, the important figure seems to stop being how much you WEIGH NOW, but rather how much YOU'VE LOST. Losing weight isn't easy and it will probably mean changing habits that you've had for years! But there are plenty of people here going through the exact same thing. YOU CAN DO IT. Good luck!

Just for fun.....What's the weirdest food combo you like?
My brother and I grew up eating honey on toast, covered with slices of cheese for breakfast. With a tall glass of milk this was a little slice of heaven. I always thought it was the most natural thing in the world until a girlfriend told me I was freak!

Should I or shouldn't I?
You are so organised - that would drive me nuts! Don't let your diet spoil your holiday, but try to stay within reason. Have seafood instead of burgers, and vegitables/ salad instead of fries. When I went on vacation last year I felt like I was really missing out, but a friend told me that I couldn't put my life on hold whilst I was trying to lose weight... Just try to maintain over the vacation, and get back on the celery sticks when you get home. Besides, May is a long way off - you'll be a slender waif in your swimsuit by then, and due a break!

You're right - breakfast is vital to get the metabolism started in the morning. Have you tried different foods? It doesn't have to be a BIG breakfast every day, just something to get your system working (there's nothing worse than an empty stomach). I have porridge with bran sprinkled over it, but you could try something light? Yogurt? Fruit? If I feel sick in the morning I try and force down a pint of water.... that will steady me out after half an hour.

Hi, the GI diet is more of a guide on making sensible food choices. You stick to foods with a lower GI, and stop eating when your just full. It's not a hard diet to follow because you have a huge amount of choice and you can have many different foods in moderation.

If you need more of a guide on how much and which foods to eat, then the GL (Glycemic Load) diet may be a better one for you. It works on the same principals with the Glycemic Index, but is strict on the level of carbs/ sugar you can eat, and provides more meal plans to follow. Check it out!
