Good for her. It seems like, 90% of the time, cutting junk out of your diet is the most reliable way to lose weight and feel better. That takes discipline and a willingness to unlearn bad habits that feel comfortable.

Congratulations to anyone who pulls it off, and good luck to anyone trying to make it happen.

That's a 1600kcal/day deficit every day for a year, a level of commitment that I have difficulty relating to.  So kudos to that level of effort!

I had a friend who dropped 100 in a year by cutting out aspartame and enriched flour. The tricky bit is enriched flour is in practically everything. It definitely takes paying attention to what you buy.

I once lost 130lbs of unsightly fat in just one day...


...The day my divorce was finalized.

I knew a Weight Watchers™ Leader who would answer the question: "How much weight have you lost?" with: "I lost 300 pounds: 75 pounds was Weight Watchers™ and the rest was my ex-husband."

It's practically stomach stapling levels.  Crazy.

Controlling the amount of carbs is the key?  Who knew!

I lost a total of 48 pounds recently. Not only 2 shy of 50 which is cool, but that will also put me at my lowest weight in over 30 years since I was 15 years old. Eliminating sugar (< 20g daily, all types) and keeping carbs at or under 100g (little or no grains / potato, concentrating on cruciferous veggies) combined with daily  exercise did the trick.

I highlighted "90% of the time" above because while doing the routine I outlined was a challenge, I fell off the wagon an awful lot because of other issues. Specifically, I finally got treatment for cyclothymic depression which had been with me my entire life. I lost 30 pounds in about 8 months before that; In the last 2 months since treatment kicked in I lost the other 18 pounds. It's far easier now to stay dedicated to something, and not sink into the "what's the point" or "who cares" slumps which always got in my way.

That's awesome!

I know there are a million mitigating factors that complicate finding a solution. Humans are, well, human.

Congrats on finding a successful regimen.

Now it's a Mothra tattoo.

/Good on her
//Good everyone on that journey

If I lost 185 pounds, I would weigh 10 pounds.

// DST switch just happened, so I'm going to lose about 20 pounds, it's a cyclic thing (more time to hike after work).

Wait...meat, eggs, and veggies is a diet?  Count me in!

Shenanigans.

According to at least half of Fark, what she did is utterly impossible.

I'd like to know how much she was eating to begin with. To lose 20+ lbs in a month just via diet change is crazy.

It must have been some complex array of special carbs, eaten at a particular time, and even then she just got lucky.

Caveat: corn, potatoes, and rice do not count as veggies in this diet.
