In the mid 90's I weighed 9.5 stone. Roll on the years and I've put a stone on, which I want to lose for my 50th in January. I also need to detox also to look good, so what do you recommend I do? I Apart from the cabbage soup diet I underwent in mid 90's, I've never followed anything like WW or SW. I have a job which is 50/50 moving round and sedentary. I make the effort to stand more than I sit. Any ideas? Many thanks smile

I am on a diet called slim and save and they say that you can lose around a stone a month on there.

Ive already lost a few pounds (im not going to divulge how much until after my first official weigh in next monday) But things seem to be starting well.

I dont think a cabbage soup diet would be the best for me, I hate the stuff! Bluurgh!

Detox is a fallacy. Be wary of any diet that promised anything to do with toxins, it's pseudoscience.
Clean 9 is forever living (multi level marketing scam: cult) so steer clear of that.

If you've got a stone to lose and you're approaching 50 the key is to work on strength and sustainable habits. I'd use something like my fitness pal to log calories, cut down on refined sugar, up your veg and do a mix of cardio and strength training. At this age it's common for people to lose a bit of muscle mass which can reduce the number of calories you need to let things ticking over and lead to weight gain.

Clean9 is a cleanse not a detox our bodies detoxify themselves and I lost a total of 22lbs in 3 weeks and have kept it off 😊 as for forever living it's not a scam or a cult lol I have my own business it's a great opportunity for people that work hard and are motivated like myself I've just left my 60hour a week job!

I do slimming world and have lost four stone in six months. If you don't over rely on yogurts with artificial sweetners in then it's sply healthy eating - cooking from scratch and getting a good proportion of fruit and vegetables at each meal. Very little counting and worth looking into if that sounds up your street

My DMum lost a stone last year in the lead up to her 60th by walking four times a week, cutting out processed foods and fasting one day a week.

I think it took her about 3 months or so and she's managed to keep it off for the past 5 months.

I can't see how you can manage to keep off the weight following one of these "detox" programmes. Surely as soon as you start eating actual food again, you put the weight back on.

Agree with Skipton - stick to something sustainable, not something scammy.

Fl is a scam. You make money from down lines not product retail. That's unsustainable as a business model.

A cleanse is just as pseusciencey as a detox. If you fast for ten days you'll lose weight, most of it water. It isn't doing anything magical with 'toxins' or 'cleansing'

You could spend nine days drinking tea and it'd do the same.

Eat less, eat proper food, not too much of it and move more. Increase your strength.

I have no down line I'm retail only I make a good monthly income I'd be happy to give you the correct Information!
