    Sorry to say this but quickie diets don't work. You gain all the weight back eventually since your regular eating habits don't change. Most of the time, you gain even more weight because your body reads your diets as acute-starvation. So it stores as much fat as it can so that your body will have energy since it doesn't know when you will be eating again....or how much you'll be eating.

    In order to lose weight for the better, you have to change your lifestyle. Eat healthier and excersise regularly. Make sure you don't over excersise though.

    For eating healthier, try starting out slow so that it'll give you a higher chance to stick to it. Start with just cutting out junk foods like chips, cookies, and foods with high carbohydrates. If you're in need of snacks or jsut have a craving to eat something, munch on fruits and raw vegies...that way it fills you up and you can eat as much as you want without worrying bout calories. You might want to incorporate beans, nuts, the likes to get your proteins since you're a vegetarian, or better yet, you should try becoming a pescetarian. Its like a vegetarian except you eat fish...but no chicken, beef, pork and the likes. Because fish is high in protein, and fish fat is high in omega-3 (an essential nutrient that our brain needs)...especially salmon.

    You should research the internet for more info or look for books in the library...that way you won't come across as many false information.

    Hope that helps. Good luck. =)

    Having seen this I feel the need to share something because I spent years going from diet to diet without acheiving any real results until I came across Pams magic plan (just google it). Without a doubt the most weight loss that I have ever achieved and I am still trim to this day.

    Best way to lose weight is NOT a DIET. Change your lifestyle and start with weight watchers..you eat anything that you want but in smaller portions. You also need to run or jog or do aerobics and then do anaerobics by doing some light weight lifting. the combination will make you lose the weight and keep it off. there is no easy way to lose weight quick, b./c the weight you lose is just water weight and it will return soon after you start back to your normal routine. The race in losing weight is not to the swift but to the one that perseveres. You have to be patient. It took a long time to gain and will take a long time to lose it.

    Best of luck1

    I've lost 5 kilos in my first week. It's my 10th day and I have included salad with some protein (eg. egg/ lean chicken) as you suggested. After 4 years of trying, the fat is finally coming off. It truly feels like magic!

    I will try to keep it simple. Your metabolism is basically the rate at which your body burns calories to create energy. So the faster your metabolism, the faster you burn calories and the easier it is to lose unwanted weight. To boost your metabolism naturally you just need to eat the right foods.

    You can sit down and literally eat a 1,000-calorie dinner and yet be absolutely starving just a few hours later and the reason is simple: Because your body didnt get what it needed in those 1,000 calories so it sends signals to your brain telling you to ingest more calories and thus, the late-night cravings. That means that the surest way to end those late-night cravings and keep your weight loss goals on track is to eat a more balanced, nutritious diet that actually gives your body what it needs.

    It's VERY EASY to lose weight if you eat the right foods. Check out Dr. Charles Livingston's video here: http://www.sexyjese.com - it will blow your mind.

    Losing weight is a simple equation: if you burn more calories than you eat, the weight will come off. Start off by estimating how many calories you burn each day using the calorie calculator http://straighthealth.com/pages/tools/caloriecalcl... This will give you an idea of how many calories to eat. Healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week. To lose 1 pound per week you need to create a calorie deficit (burn more than you eat) of 500 calories per day. To lose 2 pounds a week, you have to double the deficit to 1000 calories per day. You can achieve this by eating less, exercising more or a combination of both.
