The best diet in the world; do something other than sit in yoru fat ass, and dont eat so f'in much.
Easy really, you dont need a book to tell you that
The only way you are going to lose weight/stop smoking/etc is if you actually want to do it. No book in the world can make you do something you dont want to do. IMHO beyond having a "healthy balenced diet", it is all down to you, no diet can magically make you thin and stay thin.

My teeth now don't hurt and are whiter than they have been for years.
(also what rings true in my ears at the moment is something said to me a while back "only fat people drink diet pop". The artificial sweetener is pop has also been linked to weight gain. It affects the way the brain works quite dramatically.

I did this , this time last year, and i lost just over 3 stone. For some reason, and i do not know why my "mind programming" flipped back to its old way of thinking, and it made me put just over a stone back on. But i've flicked my programming back, and its working again. I suppose i've been use to my old programming for most of my life, to stick to the new one naturally ain't just gonna happen in a few months.
Follow the rules, it works. I'm with Paul, Diets and a way to get fat. I would never dream of trying to follow a diet , i have in the past, and i cannot believe how silly it is to do one now.
Paul's system is basically, eat less, be more active. But you eat less without knowing, eat what you want, because naturally thin people eat chips, cake, choclolate yes? Stop listening to the diet industry, they just want your money.
Lots of research done into it:
- Coca Cola done a report into the safety of aspartame in the 80's and concluded that it was unsafe to put into their drinks as their was too many questions as to its safety. 10 years later they started included it in Diet Coke which coincidentally coincided with the sales of Diet Coke doubling.
- Aspartame/Nutrasweet doesn't actually make food or drink taste sweeter. It tricks your brain into thinking that you are eating/drinking something sweet. So if you're drinking a can of coke and eating food the food will taste sweeter.
- The ingredients in aspartame are aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methyl
alcohol. Methyl alcohol is a chemical that breaks down in high
temperatures and turns into formaldehyde. Gulf War Syndrome has been linked with soldiers guzzling litres of diet coke in the baking heat during the Iraq War.
- You don't lose weight if drinking Diet Coke because aspartame suppresses seratonin and makes us crave carbohydrates.
- Aspartame/Nutrasweet's 40% Aspartic Acid is an "excitotoxin" in the brain and excites neurons to death, i.e. it kills brain cells and causes other nerve damage.
Here's some links to some websites I found.....
DIET COKE AND ASPARTAME
Any partial benefits of the healthy stuff in there are far outweighed by the addition of the neuro-toxic compound aspartame. Oh, and it also contains Acesulfame K:

which has also been thought to cause cancer:

Some interesting reading there if you can be bothered.
The mechanism for weight gain and loss is subject to so much misinformation its no wonder that people like me gain weight and feel so utterly bad about it.
I felt so guilty about eating, because I was over weight, that when I would eat I would eat fast and feel guilty. The exact opposite to the way you should eat.
Most peoples attitudes are very negative. Which means they carry an enormous amount of guilt about food. They then eat more comfort themselves and then feel more guilty. So it goes round and round.
This technique is nothing more than trying to break negative eating habits by getting people to eat slower, enjoy their food and learn to stop when they are no longer hungry. The fact that it takes your body around 20 minutes to feel full no matter how fast or how much you eat is a fairly big deal.
I found the tapping exercise worked well for me with cravings.
But you do need to back this up with execise. Get the heart pumping for at least 30 mins a day.
I still eat too fast though.
Frank Grimes: God. He eats like a pig.
Lenny: I dunno. Pigs tend to chew. I'd say he eats more like a duck.
Its annoying because that new Healthy eating/living site the goverment has launched is telling kids to swap sugar for sugar free alternatives which will have this nasty chemical in.
I've been off the stuff for over a year now after reading up on this lethal additive. Its been banned in some countrys like Hawaii. in 2005 this goverment came close to removing all 4000 products in our shops with this in.
Its funny cause the people who know drink lots of diet or suger free products with this in have massive mood swings, hmm, what does this stuff do, have massive effects on your brain....., depression being one of them.
Then again, that wonder sweetener is worth billions each year. They spend a lot of money in making the public believe that they will loose weight by using something that will help them gain weight. As with anything, ask yourself where's the money at?
On a related note, I have found myself not putting sugar on my breakfast now. Going from a heaped desert spoon to nowt in two weeks, but here's the kicker, It tastes just as sweet. Go figure.
Oh and I'm better off by £50 plus a month.! w00t!
I dont drink it that often cus it actually tastes like *h*t. It's more of a craving thing.
I obviously need to train my brain that i dont need the stuff!....
Unfortunately im a bit of a wierdo and find it hard to drink water on its own, quite honestly i dont drink enough...
I'm just looking at my drink here. It's still water with a apple flavour in it. Got all those sweeteners in it as well. It's everywhere.
yeah will give that a go...
I'm on my third pint of water today. Stranger still, I have only been to the loo once, not the 3 - 4 times I would have done if I had been drinking pop.
Little-Miss: have you tried a water filter?
