Weigh - less
I recently joined weigh- less and I am DESPERATE to lose weight. I have always used quick fixes, and starvation diets in the past, and now weigh less gives so much to each and alot of CARBS, and this scares me, Can I really lose on this diet if I am good?

Dear Yod
Weighless has had excellent results for over 20 years with thousands of individuals who wanted to lose weight. You have proof that your quick fixes and starvation diets did not help, so now have some confidence that a well balanced diet will do the trick. I don't know where the strange idea that carbs are fattening comes from, esp if you consider that carbs only provide 4 cal per gram (compared to fat that provides 9 cal per gram) and that carbs with a high fibre content contains even less energy because the fibre dilutes the energy content. Top athletes obtain nearly 60% or more of their energy from carbs and they usually don't have an ounce of fat in their bodies, so stop stressing, follow the instructions given to you by Weighless, eat the amounts of food they prescribe including the carbs and you WILL lose weight. Combine the diet with some exercise to get the best results and to also motivate you a bit more.
