    Finally Losing Weight

    I’ve been obese for over twenty years and have tried multiple diets and failed at them all. I started having health issues last year and severe knee problems. I knew I had to do something about my weight, I don’t want to die before I’m 50.
    My husband (we’ve been married 25yrs) decided to join me but we’ve decided to make a complete lifestyle change instead of dieting and I’m finally losing weight.
    Starting last December we’ve been cutting out things from our diet. We’ve been trying various vegan meat substitutes and eating lots of fresh vegetables. No sodas or sugary drinks, I only drink water and herbal tea. I’ve finally gotten to where I only eat from noon to 8pm, Exercise 30min. daily and only eat meat (usually fish) 2 to 3 times a week.
    I’ve lost 40 lbs so far and I feel amazing. I’m used to my diet and eating schedule now and have no real issues sticking to it.
    We still have our days off 2 or 3 times a month where we go out to dinner and eat what we want, we just don’t overdo it.

    I was wondering if anyone else has any ideas or suggestions as to how I can make my diet better or am I doing it right?

    How do or did you get started on Keto? I have know clue, and don't want to pay for a site or app to tell me how.

    so, what's not to like about your approach? you cut the crap out of your diet, are eating less in general, it sounds like, exercising, and.... voila! off came the pounds! magic, ain't it? you are doing EX-FREAKING-ZACTLY what will work for anybody (most of the time), and the important part is, you are KEEPING AT IT because you said "yes" to lifestyle change. diets suck. you are the example for others! keep dropping the weight, slowly. a few pounds a week is plenty fast enough. heck, even a pound a week is ok. job (being) well done!

    Sounds like youre doing great!! I too am obese and have struggled with my weight most of my adult life. About 4 years ago I lost over 50 pounds and kept it off for over an entire year! However, over the past 2 years I have found it plus a little extra. I LOVE TO EAT!!!! What I did before was what youre doing plus I was using an app called Loseit. The picture is an orange colored scale. I love it, it helps hold me accountable and see exactly what I am consuming in a days time. How much exercise I have done. And there are challenges, recipes and we can be friends on there to help encourage one another.

    Have you tried supplements ? Glutamine 500 mg /day supports weightloss, Milk Thistle , R-Lipoic acid, Liposomel Vit C supports the liver detox for a better metabolic rate, African Mango helps to get a new set point and avoids cravings, if you go back to 6 pm last meal and stay on intermittend fasting until 8-9 am its even better, drink Apple Cider vinegar after each meal to avoid sugar spikes, avoid grain products, eat raw veggies mostly or slightly 3 min steamed.Eat Coconut oil moderate daily with meals, have a Bullet Proof Coffee in the morning with MCT Oil and a teaspoon of organic butter, stay away from milk products at all including cheese, eat very sparely good organic meat if not cut out at all. No eggs. Eat sprouts as often as possible, mungbean sprouts are easy to raise. Change veggies daily, have a big variety of different plant based dishes .Follow a vegan ketogenic diet which is perfect to stay on for a lifetime. Check out YOUTUBE on this. Do once a month a liver flush.YOUTUBE explains how. Go on a parasite detox with PARA ONE from Dr. Jocker, Mimosa Pudica, most effective. Parasites who live in the intestines can spread to other organs and can make you fat and can hold the weight as Pattex.
