Hi All, Tracking our progress is the best way to achieve the goal. Big kudos to you all for doing that. I wanted to share what I have been trying for last couple of weeks and what has worked for me. I am a guy, it might not show on your phone. Also, the equations might be a different for men vs women, a bit. Also know your body is an important step when it comes to weight loss or fitness. What works for me might not work for you. I have been doing one meal a day for around 2 and a half weeks now and it has been working great. Since the participants in this thread eat meat, this might be a bit more workable for you if you wished to do this. For me the worst food are carbs and sugar. I have cut out carbs completely and I need my tea with sugar once or twice some days. But my only meal is around noon everyday. It will include: 1. Animal protein: this is either fish ( mostly salmon ) or chicken. To keep it simple I marinate my fish ahead of time and air fry. If it is chicken it will either be chicken salad if I eat out or baked even fried chicken I get it from outside. I also air fry marinated chicken at home ( or cook it in various Indian recipes ).i love subway's tuna salad as well. When I eat, I don't skimp on eating an extra piece of fish or chicken if I feel hunger. 2. Plenty of veggies: if I get chicken salad, I don't get it on lettuce but with plenty of greens and all kinds of vegetables on it. If I am home, to keep it simple, I chop plenty of veggies ahead of time. Broccoli, cauliflower, sweet peppers, celery, carrot, beans, asparagus etc. most veggies can go in here and you can pick the ones which work for you. If I include mushrooms, it will go on its own container. I add salt, pepper, olive oil and Chaat masala and put it in the oven for about 20 minutes. Mushrooms get watery and it's seasoning need to be different and also the cooking time. The above has been repeatable. No hunger pangs, only mild hunger sometimes. For pleasure it is sugar and tea with milk , one in the morning occasionally and once in the evening. Black coffee if needed, on days I don't drink tea, once or twice. That's all. I have lost about 6 lbs in two and a half weeks. Importantly I don't feel hungry, I am more energetic and I don't crave either carbs or sugar. I feel this is sustainable. I haven't changed anything to my physical activity as I am not able to find time for it. Something I wish to do, but for now it's status quo. Let's see how long I can last with this. Good luck all.
