Yes and unfortunately it makes sense, if you cut daily calories in half for a while and then go back to the required calories of course the weight will come back with a vengeance.

But when you've tried numerous things and only seem to tone up in the wrong places and not burn fat, crash dieting becomes more and more attractive. So it's a physical and mental struggle to not give in.

I heard and read about not cutting any more than 500 calories a day to be able to lose weight in a healthy way and to make a healthy transition back after the weight loss.

Yikes.  That's why I'm not a fan of the lapbands, etc.  I think it's just too easy to fall into a safe lull of security, and find yourself becoming even worse than you were before after a little period of success.  I think consistency, and making sure you're comfortable with the changes are important.

Yea the things you tell yourself once it's off, it's easy to think "owh I have more energy now, I can keep this off" or "I am eating healthy so I won't be gaining weight".

I do think that for some people the bands can be a good thing because a stretched stomach stretches the appetite, but at the same time it's not a permanent solution and can backfire for some people in numerous ways if they don't change anything after the procedure.

And yes comfort is underestimated because people think no pain no gain, but everyone is not the same.

Oh I forgot to mention Apple Cider Vinegar can also aid the digestive system and can curb the appetite.
But drinking a table spoon of it in a tall glass of water can be torture while drinking through a straw (should've gulped it down, since it's ok to sprinkle over vegetables and chew on them, but at the time I had just jumped on the wagon, so I was being extra cautious).
I have tried the routine 30 minutes before breakfast for a while, but it made my mornings depressing, so I knew that wasn't something I could keep up.

I did read about using honey to help with the taste when drinking a table spoon of ACV in a tall glass of water... but my sensitive taste buds kicked that idea to the curb too. So I'll just be using it on salads or in food for now. Some people can handle its taste in water, but I am not one of them.

I think it's delicious on salads without additional seasoning.
So that could be another option. Or the apple cider vinegar capsules.

I personally haven't tried the apple cider vinegar capsules, just heard about them. I did notice a difference with my cravings with the other methods though.


I think I might go for a cucumber snack daily/every few days and sprinkle ACV over the slices, I figure two good things can't be that bad, plus it will keep them fresh while on the move.

Ive recently jump started my weight loss by doing a round on HCG. 8.2 pounds in 10 full days. I will transition into Atkins for life once all is said and done. I grew up on a low carb diet and that is just what my body is used too. We weren't allowed to eat sweets when I was young (hence my addiction).
 
The saying; "I'm allergic to carbs. They make me break out in fat" is true for me LOL

after hcg, you WILL be able to go back to the right carbs again, i guarantee

also don't take anybody's response/advice as a must. the human body is amazing, and we're learning so much more in science (ex: calories). what "universal advice" works for some, may not be the case for you.

I need this advice so much, I should try to increase the amount of non starchy vegetable in my diet and also cut carbs. Cry

Thank you for the heads up.

After this round, I plan to continue on P3 for life as it is basically the low carb diet and my body is use to that lifestyle.  I will eat no more than 20 carbs until I reach my goal weight. Then 60g will be my maintenance carb level. If I consume more than that - I will gain weight!
 
I love the low carb lifestyle. It is really the only way of eating that has helped me lose weight, keep it off, and reverse my health issue (high blood pressure and high cholesterol).
 
I didn't suffer from health issues until I started mixing fat with carbs. Both are a DEADLY combination!
 
My focus will be protein, good fats, low glycemic fruits, and TONS of green leafy veggies + nuts, and full fat yogurt (yum!).
 
Best wishes to everyone. WE CAN DO THIS!!!

Don't compare yourself to YT weight loss. Many of them think thick curves are fat.
