There are as many "healthy" diet plans as there are people willing to talk about diet. Most have little to no evidence they work long-term, which you are right to consider. Most researchers still are finding the tried and true to be the best, something on the order of the various incarnations of the Mediterranean diet, which is just eating animal food other than fish moderately, lots of veggies, whole grains and not being sedentary. High protein diets can work in the short-term, but haven't been shown to be healthy or effective over the long-term unless you're acculturated to it, such as being an Inuit, which you probably aren't. On the other hand, you speak of quick weight loss and maintenance and the two seldom go hand in hand -- quick weight loss usually means severe calorie restriction or abnormally high protein consumption which you shouldn't maintain for long periods of time. Slow and steady weight loss is what stays off the best because in doing it you've permanently changed your dietary and exercise habits instead of gone off on a short-term digression. Tell us what you eat now, and maybe we can give you some specifics, and tell us how much you exercise and what you do.

Target Eating 5-6 cucumber every day! & You are done!
I've just lost 13 kg in 4 weeks by doing 20 min abdominals a day and walking lots. For breakfast I have a weight watchers yoghurt at 44 cals then lunch I have a cup of tesco healthy living chicken noodle soup at 44 cals then for dinner I have 1 small can of tesco tuna at 116 cals with 1/4 chopped cucumber at 11 cals everyday .of I get hungry I eat 1 tesco lightly salted rice cracker at 27 cals.+ 2 rasberry keytone tablets to boost metabolism.bearing in mind I was 113kg am and trying to get to 63kg and I'm only resorting to this crazy calorie intake and exercise until I reach my goal .and I only started as I had a shocking bmi hope it helps .but stay safe and if in doubt take multivitamins:)
Hi no it's not permanent my daily intake will then go up to 500 a day for 2 weeks including all 5 a day then back up to 1200 for a month then 1500 .I take lots of multivits everyday .plus drink 3 litres of water sometimes with squeazed lemon or lime .I have a cheat day every Friday and usually it's chicken beef or fish with veg potatoes or pasta + whole grain bread toasted .I also take a calcium supplements as well as iron .but eventually my diet will be 1500 a day with about 6 hours exercise a week not including I walk 5_6 mile a day .this was never about starving myself it was mainly to strip my body of all the rubbish ie 10 cups of tea a day with 2 sugars in each I just put my body through crap basicly chocolate crisps etc now I don't drink tea or eat junk at all so if anything it's taught me I can eat healthier and it not bug me not having the junk .but thankyou
