I am 30years old and current weight is 130kg. I am from Pretoria in South Africa. Today marks my 2nd day on D and for starters hoping 2 lose 10% of my body weight which is 13kg and will take it from there. No time limit for that but will just go with the flow. First weigh in will be this saturday. Good Luck to me

Hi newbie! Welcome again :laughing:
I advise you to weigh yourself in the mornings (no clothes oops))) before breakfast. Every week at the same time, this way you will get the most accurate numbers. Because if we weigh in at different time of the day, our body may contain food and water that will show the wrong numbers. I am sure you know that, just a tip from me ;)
You are very right saying 'no time limits' because weight loss is a long process. So, good luck again!

Wow, tharbie! Great result! I think it depends. But some people do have such results, how do you feel? OK? Any side effects?
If no, then you must be so happy, I imagine :laughing:
I hope you didn't forget to stick to the right eating habits, so that when you off the pills your weight won't come back. you should learn your body to eat this way, so it is easy for you to keep the same weight for long.
Good luck, we are very happy for you!

Hey kate...
It's the eating part I'm nervous about as my appetite is at zero but I do eat fruit in the morning and late,during the day I just drink water a lot...

I see... This is the desired part, yet the most annoying one because our body still needs proteins and carbs. Please note that. You have to force yourself to eat some piece of white meat, eggs, beans maybe... See what happens if you go on like this - you will lose a lot of weight (that's the good part), but you'll have to stop taking the pills eventually... and then what? Your appetite comes back and you'll eat like you used to (and that's the bad part). Trust me your body will figure out that quickly and will store huge amounts of calories "just in case" as fat. That's what may happen(((

If you want to keep your results for long, you should reduce your calorie intake, not stop eating. That is a common mistake. And then people come back here complaining they have to start all over again. That is a lifestyle, not a temporary helper. Personally, I had to quit all sugar and I don't eat anything sweet at all. Not ever again. But I eat small meals 4 and even 5 times a day. Sometimes I am not hungry, but it is just a habit, like work. I made a schedule of meals and I eat them no matter what. And I feel excellent! Seven years ago I started my diet. I am still keeping my healthy diet and training I am trying to engage my son into this lifestyle too. But... Ah well my hubby supports me though :cool:

Sorry for this long message, but I want you to see things clearly and help you somehow...
Just try to force yourself eat at least 3 times a day. Let it be tiny size of chicken breast with cherry tomato, or avocado, etc. Let it be. It is still a decent meal for your body. And you can make some tasty sauce (there are hundreds of low calorie recipes!), like yogurt+garlic+parsley...olive oil+balsamic+garlic+herbs, etc... Just no mayo and ketchup - that's a rule!))) You'll see your diet will become easy and healthy and you still can enjoy food.

Wishing you the best! Have a nice weekend! ;)
