A diet, by traditional definition, are the foods we eat. The idea of a reducing diet, which then became more commonly used as the shortened "diet" is a newer definition. I have to disagree with your opinion on this one; I think the worst thing for most people is to constantly get on the scale or measure and then equate success or failure with a number. Note that I am saying most. When someone chooses to become healthier for the rest of their life, to eat a balanced diet which is not based on restriction or taking the body out of normal metabolic function and lets weight loss happen over a longer period of time, the weight loss has a better chance of becoming permanent.

A "diet" by definition is temporary and the 800kcal mentioned is at best a guess. Too many variables and differences in individuals to nail down a specific number like that. Essentially that is correct atkins and keto work because u can fill your belly and not soak up all the calories. You can only digest so much protein and fat and your body cannot (for most part) turn fat into fat. Doing either diet for long term is a bad idea nutritiously speaking. Also you will feel like crap the first couple weeks while your body changes gears to use fat for energy. You will also know when that happens because you will have horrid breath.

Again some can go the slow route but nothing beats seeing a weekly change on the scale or tape. My whole point is there are always something to try and don't give up.

A true ketogenic diet is 65% fat 30% protein 5% carb (by calories). Your body can only eat about 800 calories worth of protein a day - at most. The rest needs to come from fat.

If you attempt to do low carb AND low fat, you will starve. Seriously. This is known as rabbit starvation and is very dangerous. American Indians knew about this. If you are hungry and eat only rabbit (which is very low fat, but relatively abundant in the winter when food is scarce) you will develop terrible problems like diarrhea. You actually starve to death faster eating rabbit than eating nothing.

I love eating low carb. I don't find it to be depriving too much. How much better I feel on it is absolutely worth it.

Btw if you're going to ever do it, read Atkins' book. Do not attempt to do it based on "stuff you heard", which is mostly incorrect.

Congrats, Kelly!

I don't believe in diets because diets are deprivation, and quick weight loss is rarely sustained. Slow but steady weight loss is allows your body to adjust to a new weight which makes it easier to maintain. Your journey should be about finding a way to eat for the rest of your life, not until you lose 10lbs. Don't concentrate on your weight; think about the other benefits of your healthy eating regimen such as energy, health, better skin tone.

Also think about having your hormones checked...the little fuckers. That could be making loss of fat and weight difficult.

Its hard to loose weight on willpower alone. Don't be afraid to try different things in the hope something clicks for you. Find something you can focus on related to your goals and you have to WANT it.

Also I want to say I don't do this diet because I do too much strength training. BUT the most effective weight loss diets I know of are Adkins and Keto. There are too many reasons to go into here but you can google them and find a bunch of info about them both. The stuff about protein causing kidney failure and fat raising cholesterol is a bunch of sudo-science BS but you will see that too.

Keto is a diet of mostly fat. Adkins is a diet of mostly protein (and fat). Carbs are what make you fat, stay away from carbs and stuff yourself to the gills with protein and fat and you will certainly loose weight wo being hungry.

This is my opinion based on MY experience, I am not a doctor. Insert the rest of the small print disclaimer BS from your favorite legalize document here.

Thank you for the extra info. Bread and sugar make my stomach hurt so I do avoid as much as possible and it has helped. I noticed milk makes my stomach bloat too. I'm seeing progress but it's just been slow and my patience is running low! I know it's worth it! Thank you all! Allie

All this is true, but.....I have found that carbs tend to bloat the belly, which can make it stick out. While you will not necessarily be reducing the fat on your belly, if you reduce your carb intake, your abs will be flatter.

Yesterday I performed an uncontrolled matzo ball study; many balls were uncontrolably consumed, and boom! I looked 4 months pregnant within 10 minutes.

All kidding aside, try it on yourself. Eliminate carbs and crap for a few days. Start simply with refined sugar, wheat and most processed foods, including alcohol. You will be amazed at your abs. Then eat some bread and see what happens.

One of the diets I love, and by diets I mean methods of eating and not weight reducing strategies, is CLEAN by Sebastian Junger. You can look at the book or website. Forget ordering his powdered whatever for hundreds of dollars; just follow the elimination diet for two weeks and see how you feel. You will be amazed, especially if you suffer from any allergies, because they will be gone. You belly will feel flatter, simply because of reduced bloating. Then you can play around with different foods and see how they affect you body. I did this about 4 years ago and as a result I all but gave up bread, pasta, sugar, corn and alcohol in my home. When I go out I eat and drink whatever I want, but I have found over time that unless the food is outstanding, the consumption is not worth the effect on my body.

Yep he's right. Spot reduction is not possible. Your body chooses where to mobilize fat from.

Sometimes if you lose weight fast you will lose it primarily from one place (like butt, thighs, belly or boobs). However, if you hold your weight steady your body will shuffle stuff around and even it out again.
