Hi all i just wanted to know if anyone has lost weight on a certain diet,how long it took you to lose the weight and if you have kept it off.

I have tried so many diets in the past.Slimming world,weight watchers,rosemary conley,atkins etc.I have just come off lipotrim as it was making me ill.I want to lose weight fast but i now realise this probably isnt possible.So im at a loss as to what to try next.I need help deciding which diet to do as i cant decide between them all.

The only thing I have found that works it to eat better generally, rather than diet IYSWIM and get lots of exercise.

So now I have no biscuits, crisps, choc or processed food in the house and never ever any takeaways. I walk or cycle everywhere that I can manage in less than 30 mins and run about 30 miles a week. (built up gradually over 3 years)

I eat when I'm hungry (often because of the running), from what is in the house, but if I'm out and someone offers cake or biscuits I will have them and I eat out about once a week and will then have whatever I fancy. I lost weight at a rate of about 1lb a week, so very slowly, but it has stayed off for almost 6 years now. smile
