Has anyone had good results from a weight loss program? I have lost weight, but am stuck on a certain weight and can't seem to get past it.

I caught an episode of Dr. OZ, it was about diets, he explained that our body has a stopping point which it wants to stay at. But congrats losing weight, its hard to do and to keep it off, goodluck.

My husband and I both have had great results with Dr. Crews weight loss plan. Give the office a call and they can give you any information you need. It's a wonderful weight loss plan. Hope this helps.

I did my best weight loss by drinking more water to help flush the poisons out then started B12, salads and fish, mainly salmon.

Getting the poisons out of the system is key to anything including quitting smoking, drugs and alcohol.

Good luck in however you continue but watch your health.

Diets don't work because of hunger. Diet pills cut off hunger, but they have side effects. Now, when the liver gets damaged it releases an enzyme that cuts off the appetite center in the brain in order to rest the gut/liver. Why doesn't someone invent a drug that mimics the effect of liver enzymes?

I am a big believer in coconut oil. I have already said this in another thread on here. I wouldn't buy just any out there. I buy mine at Be Well here in Glasgow. Has no taste, so at least one tablespoon goes into my first mug of coffee every morning. I can fry anything in it now, b/c it is healthy. The more you get inside you the better. Scramble eggs in it. Search and you will find how good it is for you. I have been doing this for awhile now, and have found my weight does not go up at all, and I lose one or two pounds a month. I only weight first of each month.

Generally, diet plans don't work, even if you lose weight initially, because in order to keep it off, you need a diet/lifestyle that you can sustain.

To lose weight, you need to take in LESS calories, by eating less and by increasing your body's metabolism, so that you burn more. This is accomplished by what and how much you eat, and exercise. There are no shortcuts.

It is common for the body to "plateau" after a certain point. When you first start losing weight, it comes off rather fast. As time goes on and lose the worst of your fat, it gets harder to lose.

Here are some tips which will help you get over that plateau:

Avoid anything with sugar/corn syrup/etc. like THE PLAGUE. Sugar is not only empty calories (Meaning you'll still be hungry and still want to eat more to get nutritious calories) but it helps convert other foods in your system to FAT much faster!

Avoid ALL fast foods (It's not uncommon for even a fast-food salad to have 1000 calories!)

Until you reach your desired weight, cut your daily caloric intake down to around 1000-1200. You have to reduce how much you eat, to lose. No way around it.

Giving up meat will make it a LOT easier. There are growth hormones in modern meat, designed to make the cows FAT...those hormones get passed on to you.

Eat fruit, veggies, whole grains, beans. Drink a lot of water.

And this will really help: Do some HIGH INTENSITY exercise- like Tabata drills. These can be done in just a few minutes a day. They are PAINFUL, but they're over quick; don't take up a lot of your time, or bore you; and best of all, they elevate your boy's metabolism for 24 or more hours afterwards, so that you end up burning more calories in the long run, than if you did longer, less intense exercise.

Google "Tabata intervals" if you're not familiar. Be warned though: These are gaining popularity- but some people have corrupted them into something that is not intense enough to be the real thing. If you can talk while doing them/are not breathless/don't feel like you're going to puke up a lung, then you are not doing it right.

Good luck!

And once you loose that weight, be careful you don't slide back into your old lifestyle and dietary habits, or the weight will come right back!
