    I am a 34 year old man and I currently weigh 115kg.
    My movements are restricted due to a condition I have with my back , spinal stenosis. I am unable to do much physical activity.
    What is the most effective way to lose about 15 to 20 kg of my weight?
    I have already begun by skipping breakfast and lunch taking only supper.
    Will this help?
    I am really desperate

    Just informing you on a weight loss program i joined recently thats called the three week diet. It lasts for three weeks (hence the name) and has been very beneficial to me and my health problems over the years. I am 46 now and my eating habits are a lot better than before. Check the website out for yourself. I have results of myself from before and after.

    I’ve been hunting around for a place that actively supports maintainers.

    So far, I guess where I’m at ( does it best, mostly because of the team leaders (individual members who aren’t part of the site management team).

    In case anyone is wondering, here’s a direct link to their maintenance team:

    Thanks for information

    Agreed with the others. There is great emotional cost in performing unnecessary medical tests.

  21. Robert Bodily

    Dieting is extremely difficult without support from friends and family. A new app, called You’re On!, fresh off the apple press as of yesterday, now solves this problem. It’s easy to send challenges to friends, receive challenges from family, and view the leader-board to see who has the most points. It’s motivating, inspiring, and very effective in helping people stay motivated to achieve their goals. If you’re interested or just curious, check out If you like it, use it, tell others about it, and maybe even write a review about it. If you don’t, let me know why and we’ll fix it up to your liking.

    It is crazy that most of us find ourselves doing certain habits that can have a serious effect on how are body looks. We look in the mirror and ask ourselves, “what can am I doing wrong?”. It is interesting to see what some of the latest weight loss research has been uncovering about the human body. That what seems like a simple non-harmful habit can really be so negative for our bodies, without us even knowing it.

  23. cristy

    Thank you for the listing but I’m a bit surprised one of the best weight loss social networking site is missing:
    This site is amazing, it’s like the fat cousin of Facebook..It has the same quality and ease to use but it is exclusively about weight loss and diet plans.
    I hope you will include WeightFan in your next update.
    Thank you and have a nice day.

  34. Definition of Fad Diet

    There is a lot of misinformation out there when it comes for nutrition and diets. A fad diet is supposed and promoted to improve health but may do nothing at all, or even have the opposite results if it is nutritionally unbalanced and unconfirmed by scientific studies. You need to be careful, because fad diets can be harmful to your health and your wallet.
