Success at last! I have lost 20lbs recently on the Sureslim diet. It's a low carb, low fat diet, but I have honestly found it quite an easy diet to follow, and the results speak for themselves. I can now get into clothes I haven't worn in years, and am feeling great, both physically and emotionally. It's boosted my confidence, and I now feel good about myself. If any of you guys want the diet sheets, just holler and I can send you a copy. If it works for me, it will work for you!

Abbey, I'm Annie in B.C., Canada. I would like to try this diet - can I take you up on your offer to send it to me (Sureslim) email@example.com I'm also going to try it with a friend. We hope to motivate and support each other and wish for success! How long ago did you lose your weight? and has it been easy to keep it off? thanks in advance, Annie

Cut out bread, potatoes, pasta, butter, cheese, eat no fat. Eat more fruit, vegetables, salads, drink lots of water, and of course, do some excercise - I walk for 30 minutes every two days. Be determined. I did it with a friend - we weighed in every week and shared our results (and sometimes our downfalls), but this certainly helped us both - the support was invaluable.

1. Drink water Water is quite possibly the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off longer term. Water acts as an appetite suppressant by keeping your stomach full and fending off dehydration which can lead to false cravings/hunger. Water also helps your body metabolize stored fat by helping the kidneys flush out waste. When you don't drink enough water the liver which works to provide stored fat for energy helps the kidneys eliminate waste and becomes less effective at metabolizing fat. Drinking water ice cold burns about 62 calories a day. Your body has to work to raise that waters temperature to your body's temperature. This equals around 430 calories per week. 2. Eat regularly This means eating 5 times a day and the most important meal is breakfast. Make sure you fuel your body first thing in the morning to avoid hunger pangs later in the day. When you eat 5 times a day you will never feel hungry, make sure the total calories consumed are sensible and don't over eat in any of the meals learn portion size control! 3. Eat lots of fibre Eating adequate fiber foods to help keep things moving through your bowel. And like water, fiber rich foods bulk you up and make you feel fuller for longer. Fibre is found only in plant foods our bodies cant digest it to so it simply goes through the body. During the elimination process it cuts calories consumed by attaching to protein and fat that you eat along with it removes that as well In addition, high fiber foods are typically low in calories and filling, so you are reducing your calorie intake overall. Good fibre foods include: strawberries, apples, figs, chickpeas, potatoes, (with skins) broccoli, brown rice, beans, bran and nuts. 4. Consume more good fats There are good fats and bad fats Good fats provide you with essential fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic acids) needed for normal reproduction and growth, as well as for production of prostoglandin, a hormone like compound that regulates blood pressure, prevents blood clotting and lowers the risk of heart disease. For example, the reason oily fish is a great food stems from the fact that the essential fatty acids which it contains can actually help your body burn fat more efficiently and protect against disease. Get at least three portions of oily fish a week with Salmon, mackerel, herrings and sardines being good choices. 5. Get plenty of quality protein Quality protein is an effective weight control tool because of the satiety factor and its ability to keep you full for longer periods. It also balances out carbohydrates by preventing insulin spikes that cause energy loss and sugar cravings Protein helps to maintain muscle mass which is important in the fat burning process. Good choices include: Fish, shrimps, Low fat cottage cheese, low fat yogurt, skimmed milk, egg whites, s Weight gain is caused by consuming too many calories, whether they are from carbohydrate, protein or fat. 6. Carbohydrates can help you lose weight Don't believe what you read about carbohydrates being bad for you, they can actually help you lose weight! A diet containing good carbohydrates such fruits and vegetables, wholegrains and moderate in fat and calories, will result in weight loss Good carbohydrates will also help you combat hunger pangs as they are slowly realized into the body. When eating carbohydrates eat them "from the earth" with no refining or processing. These include whole grains, vegetables; fruits and beans. Sensible weight loss If you have read the above you will see that it is not the food group, but the quality of the food in it that's important for fast weight loss.

Thanks for the excellent advice. In actual fact, it all boils down to being sensible with what and how much we put into our bodies. Moderation in all things is the key and drinking lots of water is another. Thanks again, I appreciate the time it must have taken you to type your comment.

Congratulation! Glad that you had achieved your goal of getting slimmer. Perhaps it is for health reason that we need to take care of our weight and the food intake. I'm trying to lose weight too, but it seems very hard..lol. What more in Singapore there plenty of food, food and food. Every corner, every neighbourhood, every shopping centre and office building there are restuarant, deli, food kiosk .... the temptation is great. Nevertheless, I had been cutting my rice intake. Not much improvement on losing weight though, but I can feel myself lighter and more energetic. Do share with us the diet sheet. Thank you.

It's certainly very hard to diet when there is so much temptation round us! The diet I did is basically cutting down on carbohydrates (bread, rice, pasta, etc.) and reducing your fat intake (butter, oil, etc.) Also, drink plenty of water every day, eat at least 3 pieces of fruit, and get at least 30 minutes of excercise like walking, cycling, etc. I always check the carbohydrate and fat content of everything I buy now, as it acts as a guide for me. If you like, I will send you the diet sheet in a PM.

Hi Abbie, Thanks heaps for the diet. It is along the lines that I thought but I think a few changes have been made to it with the incorporation of seeds (unless you had a health issue which did no allow you to take seeds). I really appreciate receiving it and I think it is a good guideline to follow. I am from South East Brisbane, a little town called Redland Bay which until say 10 years ago, was nothing more than a farming district. My how things change! A very good example here of habitat being destroyed for our native wildlife. GENERAL QUESTION....... Does anyone else have a more recent copy of the sureslim diet to enable me to compare the two and create "my own" diet?! I would really appreciate any advice on the changes to the diet over the last few years. Thanks

Thanks for your email addy. It's on it's way! It took me about 6 months to lose my initial weight. If you fall off the wagon (which I have done a couple of times), it's easy to get back into the diet. Just follow the first two weeks again and the weight will come off.
