    I think people who want to lose weight should train more rather than just starve themselves.
    Honestly, run, run, run! And yes, try and cut out carbs for about 2 weeks (take lots of protein in). But run run run!!! Thats best to work up a sweat!!!

    Low-carbohydrate, high-protein, high-fat diets

    High-protein, high-fat diets are based on the idea that carbohydrate, such as pasta, bread, rice, cereal, fruits, and vegetables, make people gain weight. These diets are very low in fiber foods that lower the risks of cancer and heart disease. The Atkins diet is an example of this type of diet.

    The appeal of low-carbohydrate diets, such as the Atkins diet, is rapid weight loss in the first few days. If you restrict carbohydrate in your diet to the extent that carbohydrate stores (glycogen) are depleted, you will lose water weight. In effect, you become dehydrated. Almost all of the rapid weight loss is from water loss. Once you add carbohydrate back into your diet, your body will store glycogen again and retain the water that goes with it.

    Over the long term, low-carbohydrate diets cause more gradual weight loss because the food restriction results in calorie restriction. The problem with a diet low in carbohydrate is that it is usually very high in fat. A high-fat diet may increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, and high blood pressure. It is still possible to eat enough calories on this diet to gain weight, since fat is a concentrated source of energy.

    great topic, i'm joining you...this 3+4Q were so damn bad with a couple of bad news that bumped my weight up. And as the weather "striked" i'm gonna be unable to run and ride a bike, my top fav sport. I gotta work out more and slash dramatically food portion and avoid carbs and candy in general.
    I wanna my slender body back too!!

    I lost about 2 stone earlier this year. Like you, I was always slim, then met my now ex-boyfriend, felt like I didn;t have to make an effort anymore and ate loads! I lost it all before we went on holiday, thank goodness, at least I'm not still chubby now I'm single!!

    Something I found really effective is I stopped eating protein and carbs together. I'd have carbs at lunch (usually pasta, a salad + a piece of bread or soup) and then meat/fish with vegetables for dinner. You start feeling less bloated instantly and it automatically reduces your meal sizes too.

    That plus I was running/in the gym 5 times a week. There's no 2 ways around it, you have to be very strict with yourself. Without that motivation and discipline you won't get long-term results.

    Good luck!!

    But my tips are, if you want sugar, eat some fruit instead of candy or sweets. When I want them, I eat strawberries or a mandarin or some yoghurt, it's much better for you And instead of eating high fat potato chips, I've moved onto eating rice cakes and pretzels. Pretzels are high in salt, but if you don't eat too many, they're a great low fat snack And rice cakes are 97% fat free! I'm obsessed with them.

    And lastly, don't make your diet boring. If you want to have some fast food or chocolate or whatever, don't deny yourself a little bit. If you deny yourself it every now and then, you're way more likely to just give up and indulge I should know...
    Sit ups helped me get rid of the fat around my stomach
    I can't do sit ups cos I have a bad back. Two minutes of it and I'm in agony :x I tried but I can't do it. It's not worth the back pain! So I need other ways to shift it.

    This is how I lost weight:

    - I made myself very superstitious... I kept telling myself that if I didn't start losing weight, something bad would happen to me and my family.

    - To make up for the fact that I could't really walk to places during the day (I live in a car-centric American city), I went for walks every night around my neighborhood

    - I stopped buying foods that weren't good for me.. for example, I stopped eating fast food, chips, candy, etc.

    - I watched the movies "Super Size Me" and "Food Inc." to gross me out of eating unhealthy processed foods

    - I went to the gym 2 times a week. Although that isn't as rigorous a workout schedule as many have, I just didn't have the time to go everyday

    - I drank a lot of water. I fooled my stomach into thinking it was full. Don't overdo this too much though!

    - I went to bed on a schedule and got enough sleep.

    - I tried to burn as much calories as I could per day.. for example, when waiting for something, I would do jumping jacks or just jog in place. I probably looked stupid but I don't care.

    - Eat foods high in fiber!

    - Last advice: Don't get on UKMix so much!! lol

    Exactly, that's what you should be aiming at. My personal achievement: I lost 12kg in 16 weeks.

    As for loosing muscle - do you eat enough and do you eat in a balanced way? You should eat in small portions 5 or 6 times per day - that's at least what I do. Literally, sit down and calculate how much calories per day you need based on your lifestyle and then distribute them but watch what you eat. My advice would be to avoid: pork; cheese, butter and ice cream; corn and any kind of cornflakes; any kind of bread; any kind of roasted nuts; sugar (lol obviously!); any kind of alcohol or juice as well as cola, etc. Also, be careful with your consumption of white rice, potatoes, bananas, oil and salt. And, drink a lot of water - at least 3-4 liters per day!

    Speaking of training, it's really up to you how much time you can devote - 4 months ago I started with 3 times weight lifting and 3 times cardio per week and now I'm doing 4 times weights and 5 times cardio. I also have to fully agree with what Mooriah said about interval training - that's how I've deen doing my cardio since Day 1.

    And finally, one advice - speak with with a personal trainer. There's no way I would have achieved what I have if it wasn't for the guy who's been training me and I am very thankful to him for that.

    Basically, you need eat less calories than you really need. First, you have to know how many calories you need per day. Second, you have to know how many calories of each food you eat.

    You can't just stop eating 'cause it'll affect on your metabolism (not in a good way). Whether you do this for a time, the next time you eat you gonna gain more calories than you used to be. In other words, you gonna be fatter.

    You must know that your body is against you. For it, it's better when you are fat, when you start to lose weight it will do everything to make you eat again.

    The most important thing: don't follow these diets on magazines, they don't work. Talk to nutritionists, they'll help you out with this.

    That's basically it! All people here, actually even people I know including friends, since they own a car they get fat because they depend completely on it, and they forget the value of walking.

    I would suggest walking everywhere you can.

    Also, try and stick to no more then 1500 calories (if you're a lady?).

    I lost a stone and a half steadily over a few months, by walking 5 miles to work everyday (or most days...) and sticking to 1200 calories. You might think you can barely eat anything for that amount of calories - but sticking to salad at lunch, and walking meant I could actually eat plenty.

    If I was going out for dinner though then I would treat myself and not worry about the calories.
