    He's a crank , trying to make money . Just because he's a doctor doesn't mean he's speaking for all of them

    If this diet was safe the NHS would be all over it like a rash , just a quick Google will pull up lots of controversy

    If you are an athlete or need to lose weight for an operation then this sort of diet may be helpful if it's monitored by a health professional but this sort of diet plan is being thrown around by the likes of you as something the general public can take up . It's clearly a highly restrictive crash diet .

    You may have the motivation to put yourself through this sort of thing but its dodgy and most people will fail

    Shall I PM you right now then? (Everything you mentioned has occurred bar the most of them collapsing or putting it back on). Will try and fit it in between my imminently 10 mile run.

    Good day mate xxx

    If it helps abate diabetes, why would you be so against it.
    From what I read its temporary then you change your life style diet .
    Any diet will only work when it becomes your life style .

    Re: Slimming World

    I did Slimming World back in 2015/16.

    Lost 6 stone in 9 months.

    Five years later I've put most of it back on. But that's my own fault. Not the plans.

    As Jimmy says if your lifestyle changes you will keep the weight off.

    Injury stopped me playing football in 2018 and since then I've led a life of gluttony and lack of activity so only have myself to blame.

    I'm always starting again on Monday but end up eating crap (which tastes delicious BTW) but fast food and take aways are not the answer. When I was on plan it was fresh food and protein and low amounts of carbs). Smaller amounts of alcohol and lots of calorie free soft drinks.

    I'm the total opposite at the moment. But Monday is coming, so maybe this week it changes.

    I might be wrong.
    I work for a partnership. I'm not a partner, but I believe the partners do need to prove their fitness as part of the way the insurance is set up. Or to put it another way: one or two of the least healthy partners are, I believe, technically employees rather partners because their health meant they were uninsurable. Or something.

    This diet is one controlled by doctors where the person is supported by the NHS through balanced shakes and drinks

    They reckon it helps one in 6 which is not a high figure and you can understand why , it must be torture

    Re: Slimming World

    I did it for 9 months it wasn't torture really at all, then again I have been known to run 20 miles everyday for a month and enjoy it, but then again I wasn't doing that prior to having lost the weight.

    This scheme was only brought in in 2019 , it's far too early to tell if drinking milk shakes for 12 weeks , losing weight rapidly then eating normally is good for you

    Time and time again people who lose weight put it back on again

    If you don't eat very much you will lose weight but it's not good for you

    Enjoy your run , you have always been very obsessive about diet and exercise and if it works for you that's fine but every few years a diet comes along

    Well done on the initial loss - taht is huge. I'm not a fan of slimming world, I'm not sure how many people do it just once. Any diet that comes with a payment makes me suspicious.

    The thing I found that really helped was plenty of good fat, not just protein. good fats keep you satiated and generally taste great, so prevents snacking. Obviously you need to track calories as just a little bit too much olive oil can be a 50-100 calorie mistake, but once you get the feel for it, it's a doddle really and no need to feel you are missing out. Sounds like you removed all of the crappy carbs already which is the main trick.

    I think genetics play a huge part here

    If you parents or grandparents were a certain size and shape then you are going to be similar

    We can tinker around the edges but big lump centre forwards are never going to be nippy wingers

    To a degree, but ultimately- Bollocks!

    Laziness and a fear of suffering play the largest part here.

    You are not going to be a big gym chunk if you were born an ectomorph or whatever it is

    People who find it hard to build muscle are called hard gainers as you know and that's because they have thin arms and thin legs

    They simply cannot build muscle mass no matter how hard they train

    It's genetics

    You can be a nifty winger etcomorph or whatever morph. You can put muscle on no matter what morph. A restraintive defeatist mindset is the cause of most westerners woes. You are in competition only with yourself - to bring up genetics as playing a big part in whether someone is overweight or not is a cop out.

    No chance

    You can eat right and try and train like a demon but someone of Bruce Lees build will never be the build of Arnie

    Never
