I've never had to watch what i ate, excercise was enough to keep me at a healthy weight, but my metabolism seems to be slowing down here just a tad :/ and it looks like i might have to get serious about watching what i am eating. so this seemed like a logical place to start.

it's funny...but I have seen people who exercise regularly, have great biceps, triceps and chest (all well developed) and still carry pot belly...isn't it paradoxical??

so, it's not only excercise but, it is also what we eat...that is more important.... I have learnt about Atkin's Diet ...and have done a lot of literature search to reach to a conclusion that apart from excercise our diet iz also very important for us!!!

Hi, joining the tribe for the intesting debate. Don't need to lose weight but do have a role in community around encouraging physical activity and nutrition and this topic is being discussed a lot more.

i am climbing kilimanjaro at the end of january 2012 - i asked the personal trainer at my gym, who does serious climbing, for some exercises to prepare. i live at 8,150' above sea level, and climb 14'ers - so i am not to worried about the altitude. but he said "i see you in here all the time - you do spin classes, conditioning classes, swim, lift, run... you need to lose weight & it is NOT exercise." so, i am doing this "17 day diet" with my girlfriend - i have always been ALLERGIC to diest from books. south beach, atkins, whatever - but she got this. and after reading the book it makes a LOT of sense - confusing my system the same way i try to confuse my muscles when working out. i want to chew my arm off right now, as nightime snacking is one of my favorite things, but i am curious if anyone in this group has done this diet?

Dear James,

Thanks for joining this group!

Well if I see your schedule, it's really terrefic! Do you really think of your diet? With so much of workout and climbing I am sure you must be in very good shape (Your profile pic also show that). But, if you are really curious you can just check on wikipedia the Impact Atkins diet made in US itself.

Good luck with your diet!

Hi All.

I've got an interest in healthy eating, but am very suspicious of any diet having followed a few in my time!  From past experience, any 'short sharp shock' has ended up being counter productive with any loss going back on after finishing and as the old eating habits crept back in, and the 'starvation mode' that your system copes with intensive calorie deficit kicks in.  I think the 17 day diet looks like many other diet fads that have been around.  From what I've read, it's a version of the atkins diet, and I'd be very wary of any weight loss programme that encourages you to 'splurge' at weekends

I've managed over the last couple of years to lose 2 and a half stones without the use of any 'diet', or group such as weight watchers.  I've simply reduced portion sizes and increased my caloric burn by exercising more.  It took me a while to get to grips with the fact that I wouldn't lose weight if I was eating too much - even if what I was eating was healthy.  Such a simple concept, but I think it's one of the biggest factors in obesity - after all, portion sizes are so big these days.

well I personally think diets are not good for a woman, we read a  lot about diets in magazines - orange diets, eat only grapes diet, I can list million diffrent types of them for u.....  eating only certain food for certain time is crazy and not good for body... u will get high sugar after "eat only fruit diet", low vitamins after vegetarian diets, etc,,.... I lost weight by cutting down on size, cutting out junk food (no McDonalds, no pizza , no sweets,..... ) once my body got used to it, i eat a sweets now, i eat pizza and chips but i dont stuff my face with them... it worked for me... its a common sense that if u swap chips for wholegrain rice in ur dinner, it wud give u more energy and less fat  for ur body, so u dont need to run for an hour after ur dinner to burn it off :)

Good that you came into the discussion!

I do agree with you on the facts that these kind of diets are bad for overall health. And we should be more concerned the nutritional value!

people shud use their bran in general and swap the bad food for good one - less frying, more fruits instead of sweets, more wholegrain than white bread,.... I met a girl who d rather eat 4chocolate bars and starve for rest of the day cause she reached her 2000calories a day limit.... what a stupid cow :D

"Calorie in, calorie out" is pretty old concept..u can not change tht kind of crazy people!

I'm joining this tribe as a Hypnotherapist working with adults who wsh to improve their health. I see a lot of people who are very confused about to eat and what not to eat. Most have forgotten to listen to their bodies and enjoy exploring the many varieties of food. As a cyclist I know how important food/fuel is to me and I am still learning what suits me and how to make my energy last longer.

Hi everyone - I'm not a fan of the D word, but I do believe in healthy, balanced eating - lots of fluid, fruit, veggies, fibre, protein (eggs, lean meat and fish for me!) and a little of what you fancy as a treat - cheese, chocolate, more chocolate etc. My hope is that by exercising as much as I can and eating heathily my weight will stabilise at a natural, healthy place for me - without having to even think about the D word!
