How to Lose Weight Without Feeling Deprived

By Edited Oct 27, 2013 1 5

Losing weight without feeling deprived is hard to come by. I personally have tried just about everything out there and I have only found one thing that has worked for me.

Go into this knowing that the first 3-4 days will be the toughest. Once you have passed those first few days, you've got it made. You will be shocked to see that your cravings will be totally gone, your energy level will skyrocket, you'll forget to eat because your hunger level is significantly reduced, and you will feel more alert than you probably have in a long time.

If you follow the steps in this article you should expect to lose 6-12 lbs in a 14 day period. I personally lost around 7lbs my first two weeks, however my best friend lost 15lbs her first two weeks.

Things You Will Need

This diet is very rich in protein so the bulk of your food intake will be protein in the form of eggs, meat, chicken, shrimp, bacon, fish, and tofu. You can eat as much of these protein sources as you like. No need to count calories or fat.

For the first two weeks make sure that you stay within the guidelines of 2 cups of veggies a day. The veggies should be lettuce, broccoli, green beans, brussel sprouts, asparagus, and greens. Stay clear of starchy veggies such as potatoes, carrots, corn, and peas.

You may eat 2oz of cheese a day, add ranch to your lettuce, make your veggies with real butter, and eat sugar free jello-o with full fat whip cream for dessert.

You must follow the diet exactly. No starchy veggies, no fruit, no sugar, no processed food, and no white flour products. As I said before, if you can get past the first 3-4 days you will be able to do this and see results fairly quickly. Don't be alarmed if during the first 3-4 days you experience light-headedness, fatique, headache, grumpiness, and mood swings. This is actually a great sign. Your body is coming off all the sugar and processed foods you have put into your body.

Tips & Warnings

*You must follow diet exactly.

*No cheats, not even a taste. This is the kiss of death.

*Eat only what is listed above, nothing else.

Great Article..I was just reading some of your articles and comments..Your amazing. I wonder if you could answer a question for me. I just signed up a couple days ago. Is it true you have to publish 10 articles before infobarrel publishes them?

Thank you,

Still working on this! I find protein helps along with a yogurt smoothie with lots of fruits and veg in a.m. Sometimes you fall back but you have to get back at it right away otherwise you crave the junk, and yes, if you cheat, that's what you will crave. Good luck!

I have found that it takes about a month of my really hammering in my eating habits and excercise routines before they become second nature... good points in your article!

Excellent Advice! When i started avoiding rice and limiting my food intake i used to feel deprived and used to crave for all the wrong things. Initially eating veggies and fruits was an issue too. Now i have overcome that.

I've never been able to follow a strict diet. The only method that has worked for me is calorie counting. Most diets expect you to give up bread and potatoes and I'll fall off the wagon every time if I can't have a bit of those a few times a week.
