blackmarketgirl @ : i really need to lose some weight. my short term goal is 10lbs, long term goal is 20.
anyway. i need a diet. something that works and i can commit to.
i really do enjoy working out, but im a nursing student, and in between being at the hospital and being back on campus every day, i really have no time to work out. occasionally i'll take my dogs for a walk. (i have three dogs, and i take them each seperately, i walk each about 4 blocks or so) but i really dont have a lot of free time.
so my question is, what diets have worked for you?
i really dont want to look like a whale in my swim suit this year.

whatsagirlgotta @ : Unexpected benefits
So I've been on an exclusion diet to try and sort out the IBS and I think I know what one of my main triggers is which is good. The dietician told me I could lose quite a lot of weight on it because I'd get bored of eating the same stuff all the time so I shouldn't be tempted not to eat on it. So I've been eating loads and lots of meat because there are no other protein sources and carrot and potato soup without stock is doable for lunch every day for three weeks but not every night too. I seem to have lost at least 1/2 -3/4 a stone in 3 weeks with no changes to my normal exercise levels-walking 40min a day to and from work-perhaps even less since I haven't been out with friends or done anything apart from my minimal shopping. This is quite surprising but also good since it means that I only have about half a stone to lose to get back to the size/weight I felt and looked my best at. I just hope it doesn't go straight back on as the foods come back into my diet.

ex_tara_fir @ : Update on Recipes
I tried the Gift-Wrapped Mandarin Chicken recipe from this site and it was pretty good (easy too!). Additionally, it has been approved for male taste buds by uncaring. :) I should note, too, that since I couldn't find toasted sesame oil or chili-garlic sauce, I used regular sesame oil and plain chili sauce (the recipe calls for a fair amount of garlic anyway).
