I'm currently doing something called the Metabolic diet which is a version of the Ketogenic diet.
High Protein, High fat , low carbs. Causes your body to switch from carbohydrates to fat stores/fat from food as the primary energy source which is better utilised and burnt off in the body.
I've done three days of no carbs and feeling really good - get to eat a lot of my favourite foods just without the additional carbs.
Went clothes shopping at the weekend as jeans were becoming low riders, now in a tops with no X's in front of the size and jeans where the waist measurement begins with a 3
Varies, I eat a fair amount of fruit now which is more expensive than the cheapo rubbish I used to throw down my throat, so it's probably about the same still.I'm trying to work out if the reduced food bill covers the cost of smaller clothes. I'm down over 4 stone in the past year.
I tend to stick to the supermarket clothes and other cheap outlets while I'm losing weight, so that's not too bad. Being on a low carb diet has put the food bills up though, meat is flippin expensive now!
lost 7lbs in two weeks with Yourself Fitness 2012 - but ate two many naughty things this weekend, so not expecting that trend to continue
Been a while since I took part in this discussion (too long really!), but at the start of the year I booked my wedding and resolved to lose 1 1/2 stone by the wedding date (6th April).
Started out at 20 stone 10lb's and after last nights weigh in, I'm now down to 19 stone 10lb's, so a stone off so far this year :-), not really doing anything massively special, reduced intake and increased what I'm burning off, and as a main part of my intake I'm eating much more fruit during the day (I actually feel like I'm eating more regularly than I was when I was putting weight on). Going to the gym once or twice a week (currently doing about 45 minutes exercise a time, 5 mins cross trainer and 40 minute, 5km run) and playing 5-a-side football twice a week, so a fair bit of activity in there.
I am really enjoying the increased fitness levels I'm experiencing though, makes playing 5-a-side football so much easier and more enjoyable when a little bit lighter and a bit fitter.
Although I know you should take it a pound at a time, I have revised my target to lose 1 stone 11lb's by the wedding so my weight begins with an 18 (been about 4 years since I could say that!)......5 weeks to go to the wedding (6th April), 11lb's to lose.....best get myself down the gym a bit more :-)
After 2 months off work and having to live of take out as I couldnt see well enough to cook (especially after burning a pan of soup) Now i'm back to my normal self, i've cut out junk food and started eating healthly again and now cycle everywhere, so hopefully the weight i put on will soon becoming off

A few years back I used to be 18 and a half stone, I managed to loose a few stone through eating properly, but then lost another 3 stone taking me to 13 stone.
When I was 18 stone, I used to get told by friends and family, its not good for you to be that weight, so then when I lost the weight I then got told by friends and family you look really ill. Ive now ended up putting weight back on, not as crazy as 18 stone, but a few stone and im now trying to lose a bit but also keep looking healthy, its quite difficult.
Well done @Iain.Faulkner
I lost loads last spring and have put a little back on. I'm not trying to lose weight any more - I'm now just over a stone lighter than I was in January 2011 and that suits me I just try to keep the right side of 11½ stone. (I'm 5'11")
I keep up with visits to the gym - usually 3 times a week for about 45 minutes - and have kept up with my poached egg for breakfast and home-made soups for lunch. I feel A LOT better and fitter!
Lets tech up the PE dept, Kinect in future lessons?
It's always inspirational to read what others are doing in their quest for fitness or weight loss. I'm up and down at the moment - running is going well and I've now set myself the first organised run in March. I should (in theory) run it fine as it's half my running distance. I'm up to 10K at a push so 5K should be no bother.
The weight is an issue. I'm not losing any. I'm fitter but am still over 14stone. No way I can run a marathon at that weight.
Once the 5K Sport Relief is out of the way I will be upping to 10K runs twice a week. ready for the Swansea 10K races that take place in the summer.
Now that the nights are getting lighter for longer, running after work is a joy.
