О том как быстро похудеть
Привет всем!

Я представляю проект 75кг.ру - блог о похудении, на котором собраны самые популярные и эффективные, знаменитые и не очень диеты мира, заходите и общайтесь, подписывайтесь, если вам интересна данная тематика.

Сегодняшняя очень актуальная тема - как быстро похудеть, например за неделю, в статье по ссылке подробно рассказано о самых эффективных методах, о том, что все быстрые диеты сводятся лишь к одному - обнулить потребление углеводов на заданный период и как результат потеря воды, и если после этого резко начать питаться, то и в результате воду вы наберете обратно без малейшей потери жира.

Спасибо за внимание, жду вас у себя на блоге.

For lovers of fine food...

For lovers of fine food...

A friend of mine runs a food blog, and there's an RSS feed to LiveJournal available. The food is yummy, and incudes recipes for risottos, home baked breads - and even homemade sweet chilli sauce! Yum!

Most of the recipes are McDougall-friendly, and all are vegan.

She has tested everything, so please consider subscribing, either via the RSS feed at LJ, or directly to the Blog. Here are the links:

Hi everybody! I'm Laura. I've been vegetarian for 12.5 years, vegan for 1.5. I've always struggled with my weight, and after back surgery a year ago in december, I put on another 30 pounds. I peaked out at 210, and over the past few months have slowly gone back down to the 190s. Well last friday, I joined a diet pool at work, and the same day I started the McDougall Program for Maximum Weight Loss. It's been a week and 2 days, and I've lost 5 pounds! I'm at 188 now, and over the next 3 months I hope to lose a lot more! (I'm doing the rapid to hasty approach, 1/2 to 1/3 starch) I'm starting off slow with the exercise, since I've been sedentary for a while, but I hope to start walking every day once I get a treadmill. (The weather, and my work schedule hasn't been great for walking outside except on days off)

Well I guess that's all for now! I see the community's not terribly active, but I would love to know how everyone's been doing!

I am really glad that I found this community, but I just wish it was more active. Hopefully I can help you all get back into the swing of things? I stumbled across Dr. Mcdougall's book while looking for recipes, and it sounded exactly what I needed. I picked up the book today and I've already read twelve chapters. I am really looking forward to seeing the health benefits of this program.

As for my introduction, my name is Danielle and I've been a vegetarian for four years and I switched to vegan on Saturday. My highest weight was 217.5 and yesterday I weighed 213.5 lbs, which was after a week of calorie counting. I am extremely tired of yo-yo dieting, since it never works, and I really want to make this lifestyle change. Hopefully this will become a good support system, because I'm sure I'll need it! I would like to be sporting a trimmer figure by my seventeenth birthday which is at the end of December :)

Here is a recipe for the quick dinner I threw together tonight.

A little vegetable broth to cook the food in
1/4 yellow pepper cut up into small pieces
1/4 red pepper cut up into small pieces
1/3 cup of corn
half a tomato
1 medium potato sliced into about 1/8" pieces, then halved into a "half moon shape."
1 tablespoon of chili powder
1 teaspoon of paprika
a little bit of this lemon herb seasoning

After almost 2 weeks of McDougalling, I have been brave enough to stop taking my asthma meds, just to see what happens. So far, two days and no asthma! I've also lost 7.6# and .9% body fat.

A friend of mine has just started selling Vemma vitamins. Has anyone tried these to know if they work? She claims they boost your immune system.

I've been McDougalling since Monday and have lost 1.2 lbs. and have really increased my energy. My sinuses have improved somewhat, my stomachaches are eliminated, and my headaches have improved. I have noticed that my skin is breaking out a little. Has anyone had this happen, and/or do you have any idea why? I'm hoping for more weight loss next week, and will be stepping up my exercise efforts. I've made a menu plan for next week and am taking my toddler to the Farmer's Market tomorrow to shop for fresh fruits and vegetables. So far so good!

Current Mood: hopeful

I'm a 31-year-old mother of a 2-year-old son, and I've just started McDougalling to lose weight and regain my health (migraines, allergies, fatigue, mild depression, chronic stomachaches). I am also a huge fan of Dr. Neal Barnard and the PCRM. I hope this community gets reinvigorated!

Corn Butter?
Has anyone made the corn butter that is in the first McDougall book? I tried to make it today, and instead of becoming a butter-like spread it's just lemon-scented mush. Definitely not something you would put on toast.

Has anyone made this with any success?

Is anyone still around? :-)

I've been McDougalling for a year now, my mom has been mcdougalling for ten years. I was fortunate enough to get a scholarship to his health clinic and attended last summer. Since then I've been hooked.

Life, the universe, and everything else...

Ok, here's the story:  My mom went into the hospital on December 12. She had had a heart attack the night before, and what did she do when she had said attack? Call an ambulance? No. Call her doctor? No. Call anyone to tell them she was having chest pains and shortness of breath on top of her shortness of breath caused by emphysema? No. She went to bed and called me on Sunday to tell me about it.  Aaaahhhhh! (Now my husband knows where I got my stubbornness from--I got it honestly, from my mother).

I told her to call 911. She didn't want to do that, she didn't want "all those people traipsing through the house." I told her to call the doctor's emergency number; she didn't want to bother him on a Sunday! I told her that she had better call someone, because if she didn't, I would! She finally called her brother to take her to the ER, but not until she'd had washed, dressed and had her breakfast!

I live about 45 minutes away from her, so I couldn't do much more than talk (loudly) to her and gesticulate wildly at her through the phone--no, I was not flipping the bird at my mother. :-)

The rest of the storyCollapse )

Well, it's late and I have to get some breakfast.

Have a good day everyone!

McDougall's Letter?
Even former U.S. President Bill Clinton (news - web sites), a lover of fast-food who underwent emergency quadruple bypass heart surgery in early September to relieve clogged arteries, said last week on ABC's "Primetime Live" that he wished he had foregone his relatively recent low-carb regimen of steaks and cheeseburgers in favor of a diet lower in fat.

Hey everyone, I just joined this community even though it looks to be pretty dead around here. But it's a good idea for a community, maybe I will post excessively and annoy everyone on the list. Haha anyway, for the past few months I've been totally vegan and loosely following the McDougall diet. I am doing it to try and reduce the amount of stomach problems that I have because I am allergic to wheat but mostly everything will make me ill. I'm an old lady at 24! But are people understanding?! Not usually. I know my diet is pretty strange to most people. But I am confused about the way people (even friends/family) respond to the way that I eat, taking it personally or thinking I am a weirdo. It's almost as if the way I eat is a slap in the face to people who eat meat dairy or bread. Or they expect me to judge them just because they think all vegetarians are nazis. Oh well anyway, just thought I'd introduce myself with a little rant here. Anyone experience anything similar?

I don't know how I missed this community originally. I searched for a McDougall-related one before, and came up empty. It doesn't look like people post much here anymore, though.

Maybe we can get it moving again? ...I post a lot. Ha.

I start a new job today, and what's making me the most nervous is that when I interviewed, they told me that everybody hangs out together and goes to lunch together every day. My not going to lunch with everyone else coupled with the vegan thing worries me. I don't want to be the weird new girl. I want to be the awesome new girl with the slightly strange eating habits.

We'll just have to see what happens, I guess.

A letter in The Economist magazine
"SIR – Last week in Mumbai, reading about the scientific evidence supporting the high-fat/low-carbohydrate Atkins diet, I noted that the only obese Indians there are visiting from America. The extremely thin and lean Indians thrive on what could be termed a “reverse” Atkins diet: rice, wheat, vegetables, nuts, fruits, a little chicken and fish—lots of carbs and not a gram of fat. Adhering to such a regimen for seven days, and drinking beer freely, I lost six pounds."

I just started today, oatmeal for breakfast and some veggie sticks for lunch.

I had my one month weigh in at Curves today. I'm down 2 lbs and 4.5 inches. That's one way to get excited about starting to eat differently :)

One question though, is hummus allowed? I couldn't find any reason it wouldn't be, but it's so yummy I almost feel guilty.

Hello all. I was just wondering if anyone here still does the McDougall diet? I just got the MWL book and plan to start on Monday.

Week 1 of the challenge
Things started okay, then there was a weekend. Ugh! Ate out twice which pulled me off of MWL. Oh well. Can't beat myself up over that, since I cooked a LOT more than usual. Go me! Had a pot luck at work and ate too much pasta salad that was amazing but the oil gave me revenge. erg. I ate really good all the other times! That darn pasta salad was tasty though. It could have been the foccacia I was eyeing the whole day, but I stayed away from that. Go me! No cheese this week at all! Yay!

Went to the gym Friday, then skipped until Tuesday. Promises of the husband attending and my lazy butt should have known better, so I went Tuesday through today.

And love is the gym scale. Mine at home seems to be 14!!!!!! pounds off! No wonder I thought I was packing on the pounds! Oh well, I'm still in this for the next 7 weeks :)

Current Mood: tired
