I tried various diets. None of them worked. The only thing that finally worked is
1. Reducing my portion sizes to 75% of my previous intake. (Eat slightly less than you are currently doing)
2. Walking 3-4 km every alternate day. (No need to run, just walk like a motherf** like there is no tomorrow)
3. Well spaced small meals. 2-3 hrs gap. (But don't over eat during these in-between meals)
4. Avoid taxi, car while going to distances which are walkable.
5. Beer once or twice a month and never over 1 pint.
6. Eating (nutritious) quality food is important. But do not starve.
7. Light gym.
So basically a slight lifestyle change. No magical ingredient like lemon, honey, etc is going to make you loose fat. (If you are after that)
Lost 13 kg in 1.5 years.
Yeah I appreciate that input. Yes lifestyle change is the key. But like any low carb or low caloried diet, weight loss will occur. This is not a fad diet. If you think in terms of how long this has been around and the number of people who have benefited from it. This diet is a temporary solution to an immediate problem. Your plan looks good. It's what I will be continuing when I finish this diet.
I usually try to run 2-3 miles three times a week, and so some isometric exercise throughout. When I've had good wieght loss I've ran 4 to 5 days a week, and did other exercise daily. Not much just 20-25 minutes. upperbody and core. Additionally I've done stairs after the runs which have helped.
I have a specific plan I'm looking to follow. @ theyarecomingforyou. very much along the lines of what you are saying. I've done it before.

As others have stated, this isn't a diet per se. It's more of a detox routine to flush toxins out of the system when you're feeling a little low.
actually people have consistently lost weight doing this diet. Some have lost upwards of 35lbs. I could use just 20lbs to begin with right now. Yes it's ported as a "detox", but really it's a diet. Atkins has worked for me in the past, it's really hard to stay on for a lifestyle. There's so much delicious food out there. And the wieght easily climbs back on if you're not watching it. So basically that's where I'm at. I've not hit upwards of when I was a real fat ass but still I don't want to even been in that ballpark.
I appreciate everyone's input whether I reply to you specifically. I just want to say that I consider everyone's input.
