A local endurance coach has his athletes on this-the "chunky" ones anyways...anyone try it?<br><br><b><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="font-family:'Times New Roman';">No White Diet</span></span></b><br><br><span style="font-family:'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-size:medium;">No Potatoes, except for sweet potatoes</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-size:medium;">No rice</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-size:medium;">No bread, except for very grainy bread, I have been eating the prairie bread at whole foods, still should try and avoid bread.

I always get a bit concerned over very restrictive diets<br>
I do not like being told what I can and cannot eat<br>
DW has started using the Paul McKenna Think yourself thin system - basically it is as follows<br><br>
1 Eat what you want when you want it<br>
2 Eat slowly and enjoy your food (Put you knife and fork down between each bite)<br>
3 learn to stop eating before you get overful<br>
4 Dont wait until you are starving to start eating<br><br>
The idea is that rather than going on a diet which can force the body to go into starvation (fat storage) Mode you just reteach yourself how to eat more slowly - therefore you will be satisfied by less<br><br>
I will let you know how it goes<br><br>
I could do with dropping about 25lbs before IM next july<br><br>

I am on my third week of The Paleo Diet for Athletes, and I like it. It mimicked my eating habits quite a bit before I started so it was a fairly easy transition for me. There are very few carbs, except for around workouts, and essentially no dairy. They do an excellent job in breaking down the day not by meals but by what stage of recovery you are in from your previous workout, and how long until your next workout.<br><br>
The basic rules are very simple though. Did our paleo ancestors eat it, or not? Obviously we are not eating much zebra and gazelle, but you get the gist.

Oh, that would make me so sad <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> I'm just trying to make sure I get my 5-7 fruit/veggies, cut my portion sizes, and limit sweets and alcohol. I have a really hard time completely cutting anything out.

Wow - that seems way too restrictive for me!<br><br>
Certainly a way to drop some quick pounds, but hardly a long term solution for anything. I know a bunch of people who dropped a ton on Atkins a few years back and almost all of them have put a bunch of weight back on.

I'm of the opinion that those kinds of "diets" lead to temporary weight loss.<br><br>
Anything that you start and sooner or later stop is typically only effective while you're "on it," IMHO.<br><br>
I'm also not a fan of restricting healthy foods. Some of the healthiest eating lifestyles on the planet feature multigrain foods as their base.<br><br>
Hell, be happy with what you eat... figure out a food lifestyle that works for you and <i>your health</i> and adopt it for life. Lose weight by burning more calories than you consume, but do so eating what you plan to eat everyday for the rest of your life.<br><br>
I know it's easier said than done but it is the most effective way to address weight loss.

Tithers i used the atkins drink last year but slim fast now has a low carb version also. Which i am using this year ,just because it was easier to find. I like them alot too. I use one as a midmorning snack and if its a weight lifting day i will have one 1-2 hours before i lift also. As for the diet my theory is if it works for you by all means do it. I know people don't like the atkins but last year i lost 70 lbs on it. So i am doing it again this year until april or may.The difference between last year and this year is i am only using organic meats, and as soon as i can i am stopping with the cheese.Plus when i add in carbs i am going to be adding them in by adding organic vegetables.I also have to make sure what i add is wheat and gluten free.Otherwise i will bloat up,which looks really bad.<br>
If you haven't tried it yet try looking at rice pasta its actually quite good.<br><br>

I spent four months in Russia - not a country known for its culinary variety - with a woman who only ate food that was white. A culinary racist, if I may! It was always a pain getting her to agree on a place to eat, or what to make for supper, since she was always set on white-bread and honey, or plain rice with butter. What a wacko!<br><br>

<br><span style="color:#FF0000;">Dang girl! This would be a quick way to lose weight. What about running/spinning...do you have the energy for that?</span>

I haven't started it yet. The people who HAVE done this musta had enough energy. One of them dropped like 30 pounds and did IMOO.<br><br>
I'm a complete crankster when I'm hungry.

If I can jumpstart WL I'm cool about it. Once I get into my peak/non base training I drop weight easy.<br><br>
I'm not convinced about the white diet...sounds too restrictive. Why no dairy?<br><br>
I think I might try more of an insulin resistance diet...same idea, but a little freer...kinda like what a diabetic might do.<br><br>
I used to be type 2 and on the highest dose of metformin allowed. I'm on nothing like that now. My cholesterol and blood sugars are top notch!<br><br>
I need to be careful so I don't go back to 348 pounds.

I've followed the Abs diet off/on for about a year, and I really like it. This past year has been pretty crazy as I've had 2 surgeries and now ready to rock & roll! Right now, I'm pretty strict with it as I am a first timer (Callaway sprint tri / June will be my first) and I want to lose 50 lbs.<br><br>
That's great that you are off metformin, my hubby is type 2 so I know just what you went through. I've tried to convince him that if he would watch his weight/exercise with me that he could one day come off his meds.

There is no way I could do this diet....I eat very little meat and many of those foods are my staples.<br><br>
I think the best diet is the one that works for you, but in general it should be something you can live with on a daily basis.
