I'm the type that would get fat pretty easily if I didn't watch the way I live. That's why I'm careful about it!

Dieting alone won't work, that's just reality. Yet there's no need to starve at all. Instead, start eating nutricious food (lots of greens, fruit, drink water instead of coke) and get some regular exercise. Go to the gym like three times a week and make sure you get your ass moving in there! But keep in mind, on those days when you're working out, you'll need more than just greens, fruit and bread to keep going. But keep it healthy!

Remember, if it's about losing weight, you're better off without all the heavy weight lifting. Them muscles will only make you heavier. Then again, if by losing weight you're just talking about losing some fat, then sure, go ahead and start lifting weights. Besides, people at the gym will be able to help you on how to get yourself in shape, any way you want. And keep in mind; sporting is challenging and a lot more fun than sitting at home on the couch, feeling hungry because of the slimfast you just ate.

There's no need to be starving! Good luck man.

It gets easier after a week or two, trust me. I recently went from 178 to 160 (gained about 7 of it back because of vacation) and let me tell you, the first week and some of the second week were so damn hard.

After that time period, you really start enjoying the food you eat. Not only that, but you enjoy the way you feel and how much healthier you know you are. This is what worked well for me:

- Eat 6 times a day (breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack) at 2-3 hour intervals. If you do not eat every 2 to 3 hours, you get the hunger pains and they don't stop for the rest of the day. Don't get to that point and you're fine

- Slowly ease out your carbs. I would eat a potato a day with my meals, and eventually I was so satisfied with meat and vegetables that I didn't want it.

- You gotta switch up what you eat too. You can't eat the same shit everyday or you won't stick to it.

- Exercise to speed things up. Do enough cardio to lose 2-3 pounds a week (30 minutes for 2-3 days a week). Do some weight lifting so you don't lose your muscle mass AND because muscle mass = higher metabolism. Like everyone said though, no heavy lifting, lift less but with more sets.

- Drink water, but like Jrome said, don't overdo it. When I was dieting, I cut out the coke, the juice, everything and stuck to water. Just remember that soda and shit are extra calories.

- Once a week, eat whatever you want. It's the only way you can stay sane throughout the diet.

That's all I can think of. If you're doing it right, you'll lose 2-3 pounds a week, which is good for 2 reasons: the slower you take the weight off, the more likely you're gonna keep it off AND 2-3 pounds a week means youre burning actual fat and not losing muscle. Watch your calories and in a few months you'll be amazed on how much you've changed. I fucked up after my vacation and started eating shit, but this week I'm gonna go back on it. It's just the first week kills me and the fact that I got homies that eat everything bad and don't gain a pound lol.

Good luck.

For real, man...I got eating problems, I think tree fucked my metabolism...Now it's hard for me to eat unless I blaze, and I usually eat small portions, cuz I get full quick...On top of that, I usually don't start eating until 1:00 PM or so...I have the opposite problem of ya'll, I need to gain, but I been stayin' the same for the last few years, even losing... :-\

First week I dropped 8 pounds really quickly. I was concerned, but that happens to some people when they first diet. Then every week after, I lost 2-3 pounds.
