so my mother and I are large women and have started this diet we found in Woman's World Magazine. I am constantly seeing that they have "lose 9lbs a week" or "lose 23lbs in 2 week". I was wondering what everyone thought of this magazine and all of the diets it posts. So far my mother and I have done it for the full week and I have lost 5lbs and she lost 8 already. It works, but I didnt know if anyone else had followed this magazine before with success.

Thanks.

That's the magazine where the cover story is usually something about Dr. Oz's way to "safely lose 15 lbs a week", sandwiched between "our favorite cupcake recipes" and "the best hearty mac and cheese we've ever tasted"?

I have no doubt that you and your mother have dropped a significant amount of water weight very quickly. But ask yourself if you can eat this way forever and ever amen. Because lasting weight loss means maintaining changed eating & exercise habits for the rest of your life. If you can follow this "diet" forever, have at it. If not, ease up on the rush to lose pounds and stick with changes that you CAN maintain forever.

1) Healthy weight loss is only 1-2lbs a week
2) Sounds like a crash diet. Sure you lose weight fast on them, but when you stop you end up gaining at least some (if not all) the weight you lost back.
3) 1st week on any diet usually causes people to lose water weight and as such have a huge drop.


Anyway do what makes you happy. I have no idea what this "diet" is, but it is possibly an unhealthy approach. I just wanted to give you a few warnings. I like to think weight loss should be a lifestyle change and not a diet. That way, I don't end up regaining any weight lost when I'm done.

I get those magazines all the time. I love reading everything they have in it and 'some' of the diets are not unreasonable, but most of them are hard to stick with. Like Shadow2soul said, you can lose the weight, but more than likely will gain it back bc it's not something most people do for long term.

Yes, that magazine cracks me up. I don't know how they're able to come up with "new" diets and "new" trifle recipes every week.

Well I should put that the diet is eating no more than 1500 calories and no more than 20g of sugar a day...the real one states 15g but we altered it a little. It is nothing crazy like only crackers one day, and only fruit the next. It is a high protein, low sugar, low cal diet. the others in that magazine seem kinda iffy, so we chose this one.
