MIM!! Great job!

3.5 every week is 84 pounds in 6 months or 168 pounds in a year. Now, how can you EVEN complain about that?!?!? You're doing awesome! Keep it up!

Mike! Congrats on knocking off 17 pounds. You ! Stillman's is definitely a plan that takes pounds off fast. I've talked about this here before, but you might want to purchase and read Dr. Pierre Dukan's book, "The Dukan Diet". In my opinion, he is the modern day re-incarnation of Dr. Irwin Stillman!

Seriously, there is so much good info and new science in that book. Make sure you read his story in the preface called "the man who loved meat" which is what got Dukan started with LC, HP, LF WOE.

His ATTACK diet is exactly like Stillman, except you get to add fat free (preferably also lactose free) dairy and Greek yogurt. and, you can see as you read it that eating some green, non-starchy veggies now and then is not going to set you back. I used to do great on Stillman for 2 weeks, then if I ate a brussel sprout I thought I had blown it and would give up.

The most I ever lost quickly on Stillman was 14 pounds in 2 weeks. On Dukan's attack phase I lost 14 pounds in 10 days starting Aug. 1st and it never came back! He also gives you consecutive plans to maintain the weight loss. Good stuff!!!

Anyway, glad you joined us here!

Thanks. It's small. And quiet. I like that. It has everything necessary for a great workout.

Becky, you look awesome. How long did it take you to lose all that weight? Did you do it all on LC? You are only 7 pounds from goal! You must feel amazing!

I have stayed away from the scale for a few days. When I get back to work outs after some time off, I usually gain. I know it's part of the muscle building process, but I hate to see the scale numbers go up for any reason.

However! It's hard to stay away too long. I stepped on the scale this morning when I woke up because I "felt" thinner.

Imagine my surprise. Down FOUR pounds from a few days ago. Friday is my "official" weigh in day. We shall see if it bounces back up some by tomorrow. I've been going up and down like a yo-yo, but each weekly average is less than the week before. This is good!!!

I'm going to just do cardio at the gym today and maybe go for a walk around the club. They have sidewalks. My neighborhood does not.

I just made the western omelet in a Zip-n-Steam bag. Oh, soooooooooo good. and, so simple to make! Yum!

I will be going on vacation the first two weeks of February. I'm going to spend some time with friends and my son in Michigan. It will be very hard to stay on plan at my friend's house - she does not agree with low carb. But I'll do my best and I'll only be there for a few days. I'll spend some of the two weeks at home - with the phone off! Anyway, it will be good to get away and I'll be feeling great by then!

Yam - you look great! Such an inspiration!
wow, what's a vacation................enjoy

Fantastic job Mim & Yam-Yam. 3-4 pounds in a week is amazing! I have always been happy with 1-2 per week (non-Stillmans), but perhaps the bar has been raised higher...

Thanks also for the Dukan book advice. I'll get it for sure. Will be nice to see the modern science update on Stillman's 50 year old plan (although I'm not fully convinced anyone has learned anything valuable since then, based on all the junk diet schemes they try on us). Funny how Stillman and, I suppose, Atkins, works so amazingly well despite all the "modern science" folks saying it can't possibly work.

Off to enjoy my egg whites...
Mike

Mike: You are gonna love it!

Honestly, he does not discount anything Stillman says. He just builds on it with new science and new research.

I was so thrilled to see him add in the FF dairy.

And, I had never tried lactose free milk before, but it's yummy!

I had read somewhere else that when choosing a protein powder if you are going to make protein smoothies, (which I used to do), you should buy 100% Whey Isolate because it means they separate out the lactose (which is sugar/carbs).

when Dukan talks about lactose free being better, I totally get it.

The fact that I can eat all the fat free plain Greek yogurt I want (I just add a bit of Splenda and sometimes some vanilla extract) makes me feel like I'm doing something decadent. I've even been known to squirt a little fat free chocolate syrup on it. Tastes like ice cream when it's nice and cold. Does not affect my WL at all.

And, doing that, I'm still following Stillman's plan!

Oh, and I had never heard of surimi before Dukan. So surprised my little grocery store sells it in the freezer section. Now I eat it like candy!!

Dukan, like Stillman, believes LC needs to be Fat Free. However, being the rebel I am, I believe that Extra Virgin Olive Oil and fish oil supplements make a good addition to this WOE.

I cook my fish fillets in EVOO and have from day one. I don't go overboard, but I don't completely erase it from my diet either. I think 2 teaspoons of healthy oil a day are very beneficial to weight loss.

One thing I like to do (since I'm an information junkie!) is to pile up all the wisdom and truth I've learned from my reading.

It's very obvious that all the high carb, low fat diets that have been pushed in our country are CAUSING the obesity epidemic. More and more doctors and nutritionists and WL specialists are finding that High Protein, Low Fat, Low Carb is the healthiest WOE for weight loss and for longevity and health.

Just read Chris Powell's book. He preaches carb cycling which is very similar to the second stage of Dukan's plan. Powell helps morbidly obese people lose lots of weight fast through diet and exercise. Like the guy who lost 400 pounds in less than 2 years!!

Powell says eat only protein one day, then protein and non-starchy veggies with a very few whole grains the next. Then keep alternating until you reach your goal.

OK, I'm getting carried away! Keeps me motivated to talk about it all, though!!

Big fatty back here again, eating my boiled eggs for lunch. I fell off the wagon and ballooned up after my mother-in-law asked me in February "Why are you so FAT?" ~ after a 15 lb loss. So I gained those back plus 10 more. Stupid me.

I broke my leg on Memorial Day, and it didn't heal. I'm just getting able to cook for any length of time, and can now afford food, but there are going to be challenges. Work takes so much time and is so far away, I'm exhausted when I get home.

But I have already lost 4 lbs on the Stillman's part of my Stillmans/Atkins rotation that served me well last year.

Strictly it's not Stillmans, I was too tired to go to the store for almond milk for my coffee, but it's a start.

I also dislocated my kneecap in the fall, so it's really important that I lose! This old knee can't take the strain!

Christine! Great to see you back!

What a carpy thing for MIL to say!

sorry for all you have gone through and that your job makes you so exhausted. You will get your energy and bounce back soon! Congrats on that 4 pounds gone!!

I broke my leg on Memorial Day, and it didn't heal. I'm just getting able to cook for any length of time, and can now afford food, but there are going to be challenges. Work takes so much time and is so far away, I'm exhausted when I get home.

But I have already lost 4 lbs on the Stillman's part of my Stillmans/Atkins rotation that served me well last year.

Strictly it's not Stillmans, I was too tired to go to the store for almond milk for my coffee, but it's a start.

I also dislocated my kneecap in the fall, so it's really important that I lose! This old knee can't take the strain!
Hey Christine! Welcome back. You poor thing. I think you must have theee most horrible MIL.

I love Dukan, I really do, but I think his meat-eating man is just so copied from Stillman-almost word for word. I don't think he 'discovered' the diet like he said, I think he read around and decided what would work best-especially what would be more palatable for a long-term diet. Everybody still thinks high-fat is bad-it's just ingrained in society now, and Atkins has a very unhealthy image, so I think he knew a diet like that wouldn't sell as well. Even the nutritionists and dieting 'experts' are leaning towards a more moderate carb(wholegrain) and low fat diet. But they don't work as quickly in the beginning. Zero carb does--so that would be an attraction for Dr. Dukan.
As I say I think his Stabilising and Consolidation phases--the science behind the yo-yo effect is great. I had really never know why people put the lost weight-and more-back on after a diet, i like everyone else just presumed it was because people went straight bact to how they were eating before. (that is probably partially true).
Also I knew that the longer you kept the weight off the less chance there was of the regain--now I know why.

Oh about the fat thing--I still have never got my head around the Atkins high saturated fat part. I just can't!! But I do know that if I eat very low fat--as in zilch--tuna, chicken, lf cottage cheese, egg whites my face looks awfully drained. It obviously didn't at the beginning but now for kind of maintanance it does me no favours--but when I eat salmon for a few days the glow is amazing.
And interestingly when I started Stills I ate a can of salmon nearly every day for over a year((i adore the stuff, both canned and fresh!) and I credit my lack of lose skin to that, I really do!!
