following: It's Not a Diet! It's a Lifestyle!
I'm a mom of 2 in my late 40's. My husband and I are watching what we eat for better health and weight loss. Never really overweight most of my life as I got older the weight just didn't seem to shed as easily. I made modifications to my diet going from a high carb diet (rich in cereals, breads, rice, pasta) to a better balanced diet of quality meats and lots of veggies.
I chose intermittent fasting to lose/maintain my weight. I follow the either the 16:8 (16 hr fast, 8 hr normal eating) or 5:2 way of eating (2 days, 500 calories fasting, 5 days normal eating). My "diet" or lifestyle as far as eating includes lots of nutrient-rich foods focused around fresh veggies, berries, nuts, quality proteins, good fats. I still eat some refined/packaged foods and sugar but on a limited basis.
My profile picture is a combination of my very first picture I posted on FS at my heaviest and a picture of me now. I was so angry when I saw that picture. It was 80 degrees or hotter and I was covered head to toe! It was at that moment that I started my quest to lose weight.
