  • Totally agree, we are all guessing and experimenting to a certain extent and what works for one, won't necessarily work for someone else I've been plateauing for about a Month now. Certainly not overeating or anywhere near. At first I accepted it, then panicked and ate a lot less, making myself feel ill. Then just thought,…
  • Same happened to me. I lost plenty, 2lbs a week, no problem. Then i had the idea, eat a little less and eat more healthy. For a Month, I couldn't seem to lose any weight at all. My weigh fluctuated +- 4lbs. It stayed that way for over a month, not really moving significantly either up or down. So i kinda gave up, chilled…
  • Thanks all so much. Some very interesting replies but everyone pretty much agrees. I do agree with the people who say it can help lessen the feelings of hunger sometimes. Which is a good thing. Come Summer, it's not a problem for me, I can drink loads of it but as I said, this time of year i do find it difficult. Thanks…

  • Wow, absolutely spot on. Listen to this lady, possibly the best and wisest advice I've seen on this MFP thing since I joined, brilliant!
  • I'm guessing you didn't put on 2lbs. There are lots of reasons, why this could happen. Most obviously would be your scales but I'm sure thats the first thing you checked. Water retentions seems to be a common one as well. Something to do with salt causing your body to retain water. Lots of people on this site understand…
  • I suppose the "if everyday was like today" statement makes it accurate but no 2 days are the same. Everyday isn't like today, ever!
  • And the very best of luck to you with it. You can do it, if I can, anyone can :)
  • LOL, seriously, you can't hope to win. They will pick that apart, misinterpret, misquote, take out of context and mock you for saying such foolish things which don't fit in with what the crowd thinks.
  • What I find interesting is, and please, this is not meant in a disrespectful way to Americans. i love Americans, love their culture and country, so please understand, it's not me saying this.... We often see and hear headlines here in the UK and I believe the same headline has appeared in various European and even…
  • OK, this is a bit extreme but to my surprise, for me at least, it's working. I have a doctors appointment next week and will see what he says. I've had high blood pressure for 12 years. Nothing will change it. I take 3 pills a day since and still have to be careful. I read one of these weird things about juice and though,…
  • Precisely, hence the use of the word 'moderation'
  • OK, yeah, fair enough, you wouldn't get fat but you probably wouldn't be very healthy either. I think people get a bit hung up on Calorie intake v Health. Of course, being overweight isn't healthy but for me, personally it's about health as well. I can lose the weight but I also want to be more healthy. Thin people still…
  • Wow, big grats on that. Thats amazing, great result. Keep going I do agree with 'rabbitjb' however. i assumed it would be same every week, especially if I ate the same amounts and exercised the same amount. Soon found out, it's not linear for various reasons, most of which i don't understand. My first week I easily lost…
  • Wow, this thread is still going? LOL, page 23 now! I think the overall lesson from it is, there is no one size fits all. I mentioned KFC as being bad, If I eat too much, I will get fat. Then someone aged 25 will reply, "I eat KFC all the time and I don't get fat". So, yeah, there is no magic formula that works for…
  • I love it as well but the coating is probably one of the worst things you can eat and the Chicken isn't chicken. It's an approximation of what we used to think was chicken. Certainly bares no resemblance to those feather coved birds that run around laying eggs all the time. Hence the reason for it not being called Kentucky…
  • Yel, LOL, I'm less than perfect, i admit it Actually, no, it would have been about 45 or something. I did admit it to myself then but lived from that point in denial. "I'll be fine, no need to worry, it'll all be OK"
  • LOL, I can and have lost weight and it's not an excuse, it's a reason. I was a kid, saw the advert, "eat this" I went to the shop, ate it. Simple I then did it over and over all through my life till now. And it's now I find out, maybe it wasn't such a good idea OK, if it makes you feel better, yes, it was all my own fault,…
  • Poor food, poor health, poor diet is killing more people than Cocaine But my 'We're programmed" point. Apologies to the ones who escaped all the advertising over the years. Nice one, not me, they got me. When I was a kid, the adverts on TV, never liked them but now 40+ years later I can still remember the taglines... "A…
  • And it's not your fault, it's the way you've been programmed, we've all been programmed. You could go even further and not blame the food companies, after all, they're doing what every company wants to do, grow, expand, push up profits and pay the shareholders more but I won't go there, I'm already in enough trouble…
  • Moderation is the big word to stick to but there is science to it as well Food companies are selling us drugs, sugar and salt. They know that they can sell more and more. The whole world is getting fat and ill as a result. We crave them and we crave foods that contain them I'm the worst, i love those foods and give me them…
  • LOL, I hate vegetables. Always have :) My mother made me eat them "Eat your vegetables, they're good for you" Then you leave home, buy all the foods from the supermarket that you like the look or sound of, then 25 years later you end up on a website like this asking peoples opinions and advice on how to lose weight because…
  • There are no benefits to juicing as far as I can tell other than it makes the vegetables easier to consume. If you take a plateful of vegetables, which I think we'd all agree are healthy and good for us but in my case at least, totally unpalatable (dunno if I spelt that right) and stick them in a juicer, turn them into a…
  • Fred, the (poor) decision is your opinion. However right or wrong it is. If you read again my original post you will read and possibly understand that I was asking what people think of it. if they've tried it etc. Lets say for a moment that it is a good thing, then yes, who wouldn't be sceptical but if a person just said…
  • Thanks NewLIFE. Thats pretty well what I was thinking. VERY expensive, time consuming and not very easy in a practical way. It is a lot of food, expensive food that you have to buy daily. There is little doubt that it does work, primarily for health reasons but is only a short term solution and longer term you have to be…
  • Wow, RivenV, I was asking for people who may have tried it, their opinions and what they thought of it, Chill out! I'm in 2 minds, I see it could be beneficial or it could be another scam. I really don't know and was asking peoples opinions. I haven't made my mind up at all about anything. I'm curious and yes those i…
  • I'm 52, I love crisps (potato chips) I love Coke, i love crappy fast food. I've been poisoning myself with all this rubbish for decades. The results of which brought me to MFP in the first place and I'm willing to bet a lot of other people as well. So, my body is full of salt, sugar and probably far more poisons than i…
  • Intersting, lots of replies, mostly against it. I'm not saying I'll try it and certainly not as a way to lose weight. I'm doing fine with this MFP thing so far and love MFP. It's the possible health benefits that may come from a short juicing period that I find interesting.
  • Not permanently I should add, but short term, to balance your diet again
  • Yeah but they (not necessarily me) would argue that science tells us that eating the correct nutrients will replace the so called 'food' you buy in the supermarket
  • Love a couple of vodkas a week. They come p as 110 calories for a double on the MFP one I always put in, Generic Vodka. I asked pretty much the same question when I joined this MFP. Funny how making a decision to go on a diet, you check out all your priorities first! It does add up after a few pints, LOL, just joking :)
