In the mean time I tried the egg and banana diet, Mayo Clinic, Weight Watchers....lot's of different times.
(I'm not knocking Weight Watchers, just didn't work for me, counting points drove me crazy)
The grapefruit diet...my mom had put my dad on this one in the 60's...something about the acids diving into those fat cells. Didn't work for him or me.
Hopeful was the Dolly Partin Diet which consisted of making this cabbage soup and eating it a lot.....boy did I ever get sick of cabbage soup! I still love Dolly...and the red velvet cake you can get at Dolly World....you can have her soup.
I loved this diet..the Suzanne Somers diet...who didn't love Chrissy on Threes Company? I lost 40 lbs on her diet...it's low carb. We ate pretty well but used full fat dressings, and bacon, steaks were okay....something didn't seem right about that, but we were losing weight, quickly.
Trouble was on her diet no banana's, carrots, sweet potato or bread. Oh-Oh...didn't see that one coming! The whole time I was on that diet I wanted ...needed...a sandwich. The sandwich finally won and I gained back 30 of the 40 pounds I had lost.
So long all the fad diets, gimmicks, pills and starvation tactics...goodbye.
