... with 4 times a week exercise for 1/2 an hour
No you need to eat a balanced, low carb low fat diet.
If you go on a diet like that not only will you be doing harm to yourself by not supporting your body with the calorie intake you need to support an exercise regime like that... you will likely regain the weight plus some. Taking diet supplements then basically starving yourself because fruits alone will bloat you and throw off your whole digestive system. You will likely end up with a yeast infection, too, for all of your effort because of the sugar.
To succeed on a weight loss program you must eat FOOD. There is no way around it. However, there are programs out there that help you lose AND keep it off. I have lost and kept off 92 lbs. Michael Thurmond's, 6-Week Body Makeover, is a wonderful program because it makes sense. The foods you are eating at the beginning of the program you will continue to eat when it is over. It takes 6 weeks to break a habit and 6 weeks to develop a new one. If i had realized I was eating all of the wrong proteins, carbs and starchs... I could have conquered this before my 50+ years of age. That is a huge bonus as far as this yo-yo dieter is concerned. It took me a total of 9 months to lose it and I have kept it all off for well over 5 years.
So, it isn't just about losing it. So many people (I am one of them) think they can figure it all out when the weight is off. Diets don't teach you anything about keeping it off. But this last and final program did for me.
Please think about your health for the best and rest of your life. You could lose the weight and lean muscle too. You don't want to be a lean tired mess, right? Aren't you glad you asked that question?
I am happy to share just how well this program worked for me. Friend me if you would like the support and I will help you along the way...
