I Need Drastic Diet Help!?

I used to have an eating disorder. I didn't mean for it become so extreme. I made dramatic changes in my diet. I only ate the bare minimum, obsessively counted every calories, and drank a lot of water to suppress my appetite. I also started to exercise excessively. The thought of skipping the gym was unacceptable.

I lost a lot of weight, sure. I went from 140 pounds to 108. I have to tell you, I never felt so miserable in my entire life. I was lost in an alternate reality. The thought of over-eating made me have severe anxiety. I would get horribly depressed if I didn't meet my desired calories. It was easy and fun at first, but it became an obsession that robbed me of my life. I would avoid social events because I didn't want to drink alcohol or eat. I became distant from everyone. I just wanted to be left alone with my calorie counting and exercise. I felt weak, exhausted, and miserable.

Having a "quick drastic approach" type of attitude is a terrible idea. You will just end up gaining the weight back too. I am back to 130 pounds and this only happened a year ago.

I have been recovering from this drastic diet, but it has left a negative mark on my well-being. I have become bi-polar, depressed, and anxious ever since.

The same way you didn't gain all this weight in a day, the same way you won't lose it fast. Its possible, but you will gain it back. Maintaining your weight is much harder than losing it, trust me. You have to change your entire lifestyle one step at a time.

Eat as healthy as you can, be aware of how many calories you're taking in, and get 30 minutes of exercise daily.

Please don't do anything drastic, you will really regret it. I know you really want to lose weight, but do not be inpatient.

Perhaps you could try The Great Australian Diet discussed below.

Created by Australian health guru Dr John Tickell, the Great Australian Diet is touted as a return to natural foods and natural eating patterns. Tickell, an obstetrician turned sports medicine specialist, claims that after travelling the world and studying foods, he has discovered several simple rules which can help anyone lose weight healthily.

He describes the Great Australian Diet as "anti-Atkins, anti-CSIRO" and emphasises the importance of carbohydrates in the diet, saying that the "two most important foods we eat -fruits and vegetables- are carbohydrates". Dr John also criticises the low GI diet because, he says, it frightens people off eating carbs.

The Great Australian Diet is actually rather complicated, and may not be as easy to follow as Dr Tickell seems to think. First of all, he replaces the glycemic index with the HI, or 'Human Interference' factor. This means that foods which have been highly processed, such as salami, white bread and white rice, are considered unhealthy, and are replaced by unprocessed alternatives- raw and lightly cooked vegetables, fish, especially deep water fish and sardines, and small amounts of lean meat. 2/3 of the diet should be composed of vegetables and fruits, and 1/3 'bonus' foods, which are essentially lean proteins, and after the initial two day cleansing period, which is very low calorie, 15 different types of plants should be eaten every day.

Since no calorie guidelines are given, and only vague instructions to eat 4 or 5 nuts and so on, this may be the downfall of many dieters. After all, its pretty easy to forget how many nuts, seeds and grains you have eaten. It may also be hard for people on busy schedules to keep to such a demanding diet, since eating out is restricted really to grilled fish and an occasional steak and vegetables.

But the Great Australian Diet is much more than just an eating plan. Dieters get points for watching the sunset, hugging their children and other 'coping' activities, and use gentle exercise techniques to strengthen trunk and arm muscles. Walking is also part of the diet, which claims over 91 days to re-educate the body into natural rhythms. One of the selling points for me at least, is the resting weeks- after each three weeks on the diet, there are two weeks when you are allowed to eat freely, and recuperate. However, although it seems pretty healthy, the Great Australian Diet is never going to be voted easiest diet of the year.

well there are a few things you can do.

1. Juicing

well i've never done it, but some people told me that it works.

if you dont know what that is...

its when you go a week straight of just drinking vegetable juice that you made.. by putting them through a juicer.

the trick is, it has to be fresh vegetables (not canned or frozen). and it has to be with a juicer (not a blender or anything). and i heard that if you buy organic vegetables, it works a little better.

and thats all you can have for a week. i think you can have water too, but im not sure.


..so thats one diet that could work. but if its too extreme for you... just have a healthier diet and exercise more. eat more vegetables/fruits, and try to stay away from junk food. and try to work out.. even if it means just walking outside.


and also.. i heard that its better to eat more in the beginning of the day (because you burn it off during the day), and that as the day goes on, you shouldnt eat as much. so at supper time, you should have a lot less than you had for breakfast that day.


you can also try this site (when i used it, it was for free - no trial or anything... its just completely free. that was a while ago, but i think its still free): https://www.choosemyplate.gov/SuperTrack...

its a food tracker. you can create an account, tell your weight/age (which helps tell it how much of each food group you need). then just put in a food that you eat& how much of it you ate... and it totals it all up... and tells you if you're under/over. and you can keep track of it that way

so i hope some of it helped. gl :)

I lost 4 lbs in the past two days. Along with eating healthy foods, you need to incorporate cardio exercise. Start with walking for however long you can, then increase it day by day. There's no healthy way to lose drastic amounts of weight in a very small amount of time, but with a healthy diet and daily exercise you'll surely see a gradual change!
