I have decided to document my journey with this diet because I have not seen anyone else on here with my stats really. I don't have a lot of weight to lose. I am not 'fat' by societal norms, just 'un-toned' with an un-natural obsession in which I think about food. I am 5' 3" 127lbs, I wear a sz 5 in jeans. Most people are happy with this but until recently, I had always been able to maintain a stable weight of 113lbs. All my clothes are sz (S), (XS), 25, 26, 00 and 0's; needless to day I no longer fit into any of them.
My weight gain has been steadily climbing over 2 years. I can exercise and diet but I still can't stay below 120lbs. The hunger *was* unbearable. I ended up thinking about food all day. I was to a point where I was despising healthy food. Prior to this weight gain, I lived a semi active lifestyle with little hunger and pretty much ate what I wanted. Now, I eat 1 turkey 6in sub with swiss, I gain a lb the next day if I don't work it off. I am 26 and I guess my metabolism is slowing down. Either way, I haven't seen anyone on here use this diet for minimal weight loss at my stats.
I would like to get back down to 113 and NOT be hungry. So far, the diet is going AMAAAZING!! I have lost 3 lbs in 3 days. (I started at 131). If I keep up this rate I will hit my goal in weeks. I am trying to eat normal but my appetite is GONE. I don't even think about food. I am still in shock about this. I have always been the time to binge late-night and still wake up ravenous in the morning. I woke up today made of cup of coffee at 6:30 am and it is still half full. I can't even finish a cup of coffee.
The AS is getting stronger everyday. This diet is such a refreshing (and cheaper) break than the diet pills and special frozen meals I had to buy in the past. The only Q I have now is can I drink carbonated water to get the oil down? The regular water doesn't really get the greasy feeling out of my mouth. It would be so amazing if I could drink carbonated water.
Good Luck to everyone!
