    48 pounds over 5 months by a low carbohydrate

    diet, no sugars, lots of fibre and protein, lots of fat. With supplements like L-Carnitine, fish oil, vitamins and mahogany seeds. I had to. I was obese and had diabetes. Now I feel much better. I'm still at 27 BMI so I have another 20 pounds to lose.

    1. Only eat single serving sizes(for meals or snacks). You'll be very hungry at first, but after a few days your stomach will naturally shrink and you will get full faster and feel full longer (I can't believe people really get surgery for the same thing). This means you shouldn...
