I'm sure this has been said, but the best diet you can do, is eat a balanced diet, as recommended by the food guide, and get lots of fresh air and exercise. Don't eat junk, and don't eat too much. Eat the usual 3 meals, and add in carrots or celery or fruit if you get hungry in between.

What's balanced?... and the food guide is far too vague to be useful (she's in Ireland anyways), what's junk? what's too much?  You'll need to elaborate as everyone is different.

what's balanced??
Seriously??
Getting all the nutrition as required for your age/weight/height? I don't know her, she would have to consult a doctor or nutritionist. The food guide is vague you are right, but everyone is different. I believe she eats meat, so it's the required amount of food from the 4 groups for her age/height/weight. If interested in a healthier heart and faster weight loss, you should consider a vegetarian diet, and find recipes for foods that have an alternative to meat. (theres lots of veggie recipes so you know you aren't missing out on anything.)

Junk I consider fatty/trans fatty/saturated foods, too many sweets, etc. Fairly obvious, no? Cutting down on carbs helps a lot too.

...and you can tell by her post she didn't read the thread.  I was merely showing her that she was being far too vague, for instance > low carbs may seem like a good idea at first but a healthy diet still should consist of about 50% carbs, 25% protein and 25% fat.  Carbs are essential in the morning and through most of the day, at night however it's best to avoid carbs and stick to protein.

Why so much protien???generally it should be 10 to 15 % of your daily calories the higher if you are real active...your fat is real high too....What is your diet..if you don't mind the inquiry????


As i said Scratch has been around awhile and knows her stuff, but I can appreciate you didn't know that lol......

that 25% protein is a bobybuilding number, and 25% is max of where calories should come from (also fat should not exceed 20%).  But then, bodybuilders are not the healthiest specimans around.  Be careful in consuming high levels of protien.

I'm not attacking skratch here you know, no need to keep defending her, I'm sure she's fully capable of that herself.  Protein is healthy and breaks down slowly, so on top of having a low calorie count is takes more calories to digest as well.  It just burns longer in the furnace then carbs or fat and is essential if you want to keep the muscle mass you currently have and not lose weight from your muscles instead of losing the fat.  I guess I'm just very active too....so my advice is from that perspective.  The fat I consume is mostly unsaturated(both poly and mono) fats found in nuts and the sort.  You can trust I have a healthy diet (minus the occasional pepsi  unsure.gif ).

not sure if this has been mentioned, but what do I care.

I heard celery sticks can make you lose calories pretty fast, as it takes more to eat and digest the calories in the celery, than what it actually provides.

plus they're green, so I guess they're healthy too. if you dont like greens, paint it orange so you can see in the dark as well as tongue.gif laugh.gif

If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do. The smallest act of kindness can be the greatest thing in the world.

That's true, celery is basically water, but it does take awhile to break down the "strings" it's made of...and it is suggested to eat a little cheese or olive oil (or whatever you fancy with it) as the nutrients hitch a ride on the fat molecules present.
