I have the same problem as many of you. I have always been in good shape, never overweight. Following my hysterectomy last June, I found myself 35lbs heavier by December!!! I did everything right to get the weight off but nothing worked. I was very bloated as well. Two months ago, I tried 'The Virgin Diet': no sugar, no dairy, no soy, no gluten, no corn, no peanuts, no eggs. I lost 7-10 lbs and began to feel better. The initial period of time to eliminate the 7 foods is only 3 weeks. It is hard to eliminate all of those ingredients. Following the initial three week, I continuento eliminate all of the 7 as much as possible but when I can, I consume them as little as possible. My weight is slowly decreasing and bloating is minimal. These are good things. A bad thing is I still don't feel as good as I should. Chronic aches, pains, terrible headaches, and even continuiningly thinnin hhair. I suggest the Virgin diet is worth a try.
Hi, thank you for your post and congrats on your weight loss. That list of what not to have is doable for me except the eggs; they are one of the things I will eat whenever I do have an appetite. How long did it take you to loose the 7-10 lbs? I'm not a big eater which could be part of my problem. I've been told and read that we have to eat in order to lose. I'm looking forward to your reply. Have a GREAT day!
