I've been looking for a efficient way to lose weight for a very long time now. Always had weight problems since puberty started, it went away in my late teens and early 20s. As I neared 30 my weight crept up and has stayed and stuck like an unwanted guest.
I've pretty much tried everything, starving myself with a tough exercise regiment during my 1st semester in med school really gave me excellent results within a week. But alas, my friends started to feed me and I found a girlfriend so that diet went out the window in less than a month. I had lost about 20-25 pound with my pants falling off.
During my 3rd year of med school I began a regimen for novice runners. I was up to 3-4 miles a day in 6 weeks, very good results and I was addicted to the run. My days would suck if I didn't get out on the treadmill and it would linger in my mind until I did. Weight loss was slow, results were hard to see partly because my appetite was huge from the running. But it was fun, I would track my progress with Nike Plus and I was certainly much more energetic throughout the day.
So now in my 4th year of med school I have decided to start a new diet. This one is brought to us by a Dr. Lewis in Burbank, California. This diet consists of taking only 5 bites of whatever you please twice a day supplemented with a multi-vitamin and as much noncaloric fluid as you please, of the 10 bites/day 2 must be protein. Simple enough, right? Well we'll see. I started my diet today. Since yesterday was Thanksgiving my 10 bites today is obvious.
Starting weight 234 lbs.
5 bites of a combination of stuffing and chicken breast.
6 bites of a combination of stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce and chicken breast. 1 Cup of Earl Grey Tea.
