What is working for me so far is having one 'free' day a week. That is on my official weigh-in day and I use it even if I don't lose that week. So I have anything and as much as I want and usually eat out that one day. The other 6 days I try to eat in my calorie range, eat at least 2 fruits and 3 or more veggies. I usually eat a bigger breakfast and lunch and a smaller supper often with a cup of hot tea as the hot tea seems to keep me from being hungry. If I crave something, I just say to myself wait and you can have that on your free day which sometimes I do but often the craving goes away. I have been doing this for 83 weeks and have lost 54.6 pounds but that would be better if I haven't gone AWOL for a little over a month when having some emotional issues. I know this isn't for everyone and might not be the healthiest but it is working for me. Good luck finding a plan that works for you. Just never give up! 276 days ago
I did low carb for a while. It was nice to not feel hungry. Sadly, it didn’t work for my old body. I just couldn’t comfortably eat that much fat.
My nutrition plan is like the very old WW plan and similar to the diabetes plan. I eat measured amounts and limit the number of servings on the big three protein, starch and fat. You will find yourself eating many more servings of fruits and veggies on this plan. I track and have a calorie range as my goal. The macros are in the lower SP range on the nutrition tracker and tend to be lower carb. There are no forbidden foods either. This plan works well at home or when eating out. There is nothing fancy about it and it has become fairly intuitive over time. I have added a fiber supplement to my diet because I just could not get my numbers high enough without them.
