I'd had two seriously painful years with bad hip joints and finally got both replaced. In that time I was barely able to move about - too painful, so I had put on weight up to 105kgs (I am 5'10" 60yrs male.) Now this was a lot of weight to heave around on my new hips, so Jan 1st this year I went on my much derided "cabbage soup" diet. Its actually a generic name for counting calories, avoiding all manner of processed foods, sugar salt, oil fats factory bread. So what's left? Fresh fruit vegetables, pulses, fish lean pork skinless chicken, eggs (no cheese), home made yoghurt and bread, tinned sardines, tuna, mackerel, pilchards.

My diet took its name from a favourite chinese soup using green cabbage and 2oz lean pork cubed small handfull of noodles. You would be surprised how good that can taste.

 

When I studied what went into commercial bread I was appalled and, following 1000+ good ratings from users I got a breadmaker. These are so simple to use, takes 5 mins and press a button, come back 4 hours later. My bread is real wholesome seed loaf which I slice up and freeze. I can only manage 1 slice with low fat spread and marmalade in the morning, couldn't manage another, too filling.

 

To stave away hunger, chew on celery, carrots, apples, pears. The first month is the worst.

 

Keep a chart, weigh yourself at same time, same conditions.

 

It worked for me and I am not lugging an airport suitcase any more. I am going to keep going down to 80kgs then I will be the same weight I was 20 years ago.

My stomach has shrunk to barely accepting more than a child's portion or I'm full

 

That's my true story, no fads, no BS or hidden agenda just plain healthy food

OBTW, only allow yourself max 2oz of animal protein/day and the diet assumes you are not involved in serious manual work.

I used a different method to drop from 110 kg to 86/87 kg (I'm 6 foot large bones).

I simply cut in half my portions.

I kept on eating everything (I don't eat junk anyway) but just half of it.

It worked and now I'm used to smaller portions so the weight has been stable for the last couple of years.

Welcome to the slim club robint 😊
