On a diet, my hunger is diminishing after a few weeks

It can be done. I've lost over a hundred pounds and have kept it off for about 20 years. Counting calories and exercising have worked for me.
Great. :)

trying to cut simple carbs, sticking to complex ones and meat. Too early to say but still no result.

Been alternate-day fasting and sticking to a keto style of eating since mid-March. Have lost 33 lbs. and still counting down! Would like to go down another five pounds. Keep up the good work--the feeling and the benefits are worth it!

If you limit carbs to 20 a day, then things will start moving.

I recommend you read the Atkins book.

I have stayed out of this thread until now. Here are a few extracts from various posts which I think are useful for anyone contemplating a "diet". Forget diets - it is all about lifestyle.

… The second thing is diets don't work, they just screw up your metabolism. What's needed is a lifestyle change. If, you alter your food intake (diet) make sure it's one that you can follow forever. …

Exercise must be part of the new lifestyle.

Don't go into starvation mode: a couple of posters emphasized this.

Great way of getting exercise. Find a local gym. Walk there and back three or four times a week. No need to join up, pay up or enter the premises. Just walk there and back. :-)

My only new comment.

Avoid artificial sweeteners especially soda drinks. You can read about their effects on our metabolism but it is simpler just to look around you: grossly overweigh (moving mountains of fat) people will invariable be drinking large quantities of sugar free soft drinks. The fattest person I know (400lbs-450lbs in the UK) drinks at least 5 litres of the stuff a day. Until he began drinking large amounts of soda, he was apparently normal weight and fit enough to play soccer seriously. If you have to drink soda - drink the real McCoy.

On this diet I rarely feel hungry. Every other diet I've tried has always failed because all I would ever think about was what can I eat next as my hunger pangs were out of control. I can also say that at this point in time since being on the Atkins diet that it's such a great feeling to just stand up after sitting and not have to lift the extra 30 pounds that I've lost.

Weigh in at 202.6 today. A bit up. It's actually been way too hot the past week to do much physical activity. :(

Hmmm …

I notice that Glassy hasn't been logged in for almost two weeks. Hope all is well with him.
