I am starting it one on Monday 31st March, it will hopefully combine lots of sport and a strict diet.

Is anyone on a diet now?

I need to lose 5kgs in one month.

Move back to Moscow. I've lost 14 lbs. No sport, no strict diet needed. Just a little stress, no car, carefully analyzing which groceries you want to buy because you must carry them all the way home, add extra weight lifting for carrying home heavy pet food supplies, it's easy!

BTW, 5 kgs in a month doesn't sound healthy. Why do you "need" to? Whatever you do make sure you drink lots of water.

If you are looking for support group a la 'in the same boat', this might be a good place.
I decided not to go on any special diet, but by changing it and doing sports, I am aiming at losing 5 kg too and about 3% fat in my body mass!
Which stimulates me to go to the gym at least 3 times per week, eat lighter food and reduce alcohol intake :-)

But maybe you can find something opposite to liposuction, maybe lipoinjections :-)! :goblin:

Good question, Sal.....

Elis is right - more water......and taking weight)))

However - if you really do want to lose 5 kgs smartly - you need to discuss it with specialist......as this is very individual question and depend on many things......

My guess - less of heavy food and more fruits....but sometimes it is not working also....

Try to increase your physical trainings.....anything would be good - gym, dances, shopping:) running e t.c.

And - try to eat more frequently, but by small portions.....

Footnote: Kindly asking for an updating from you in the end of April - I will try to do everything, what you tried to avoid :p

interesting when i was there most of the expats men were losing weight (record: 15 kgs in 18 months - was not me of course) and most of expat girls were getting fatter

so you are an exception

14?! Wow!

I have not gained. But I had lost a few right before the move here because of stress. I'd like to lose those again . . .

My abs are not what they were, but my arms still look okay because of carrying things all the time . . .

I am not on a diet but am following the Lenten Fast. It usually helps me shed a few kilos. As of 1 April I will spice up my swimming with running 5 times a week, so will see what the results would be in 5 months. Not aiming to lose weight exactly but to find the right equilibrium rather. Sometimes sport can be a bit too compulsive, I have found out.

Sal, I wish you and everyone else strong will power and lack of appetite :D

I too am starting to diet (die with a "t") Monday. I resolved to pig out for this week after Lent, but by Monday my chocoate will be gone, and my 'fridge will have only healthy stuff in it.

I didn't say I wouldn't have fun . . . I can still eat lovely fish and have real cream in my coffee and make salads with avocado and other yummy things. Good carbs (whole grains in moderation, lots of fresh veggies) are okay. Yeah, basically what the diabetics recommend.

Never a truer word was spoken!

But I discovered this past Lent, because I gave up sugar, that you could get a drinkable cup of hot chocolate by heating up a cup of unsweeted fruit juice (with pulp is best) in the nukimator, and then adding a couple heaping tablespoons of cocoa powder. Stir it for a few minutes to disperse the cocoa, and drink.

It really satsified those chocolate cravings for me.

I am currently on a diet not strict cause its only from Mon. to Fri., basically i've just cut down on my intake for B'fast & lunch & for dinner it's mostly crackers, pepperoni, cheese & of course beer, whisky or vodka whatever is available and lost 1.5kilos on my 1st week, but Sat & Sun it's breaktime, so maybe tomorrow night thinking of indulging in some grilled pork-ribs in the overn.

I must say 3yrs. ago I ate normal, but lost 12kilos in 2mos. How, no dinner, just drank beer at the bars everyday Mon to Sun. and it worked and was fun at the same time.

cheers to all... it's T.G.I.F.

Sounds very interesting. Altough I'm not so sure that I'm into chocolate enough to give it a try...

It's not so much the calories that count, but the good balance of nutrition. Youn don't want to lose weight quickly just to gain it back. Cut down on portions of fatty foods, and go for the veggies and fruits. But the veggies must be steamed or raw. No frying or funny stuff...

Good luck. Can't wait to see the menus.

I love to diet!!! I love getting up in the morning and frying up my favorite dish of large farm fresh eggs, a skillet of pan fried potatoes and bacon. After my nap, a large bowl of Tony the Tiger breakfast cereal with wholesome milk (tetra Pac) comprised of only 20% fat content, water and coffee paint to get me motivated to start my day. I sleep through lunch occasionally; however, when I don't, a rib sandwich with bacon will get me through to supper unless the hunger pains are unbearable, then I search the fridge for something filling. Usually, I settle for the left-over bacon (if there is any) and plimeni, mayonnaise and whatever vegetable I have in the fridge (usually the freeze dried frozen package of green beans in the freezer). Three meals a day is all I need and everyone is as important as the other if one wants to be properly nourished. We will discuss this another time. I need to take a nap after my supper.

I'm not on diet but I make sure that what I eat is healthy. We all know the good things are the one's that we are advised to avoid. I've got back into sports again after my move here I am now going swimming and to the gym. The thing is, I really get addicted to the gym!

If you cut out the soft drinks, just that will make a huge difference if you drink loads of the stuff - alcohol is another thing that needfs to be managed and the more fruit and veg you eat the better. Avoid snacks, eat your main meals, breakfast is important and eat pleanty of grilled chicken, fish etc...

I have had very good success with lo-carb in the past. Lo-cal and lo-fat doesn't work for me. I have kept off most of what I lost. Just need to get back on the program and cut out the sugar/white flour for a few weeks.

Yesterday I had for

Breakfast:
Omelette and a few slices of bacon
coffee with cream
lots of water

Morning snack:
Cheese cubes
Some slices of lunch meat
More water

Lunch:
Lovely little salad of shrimp, lettuce, tomato, pink grapefruit

Dinner:
Nice salad with arugala, avocado, bleu cheese, toasted walnuts, balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil
One hamburger patty (I bought a grinder and ground my own meat!)

White wine
Lots more water.

Today I am down .65 kg.

Sal, a few years ago, after I was a few pounds less than officially obese, I went on a diet and lost more than 40 kilos. It was a lot of work, but I will give you a few tips.

1. No sugar, ever. Not even in your coffee. Avoid processed flour. Avoid potatoes and bread. Never eat dessert. Don't even think about dessert.
2. Walk everywhere and take the stairs instead of the elevator for anything under 10 floors.
3. Eat enough for one person and be done. Don't go back for more. You don't need the appetizer (or "starter" as the Brits say). You just think you do. Don't order it.

The first two weeks are torture, then you get used to it and start to see results. It will be easier to stay on the diet if you keep it going for at least three weeks.

Unfotunatelly, I don't have opportunity to stick to the diet... I have to have my lunch either at a caffee or a canteen, and it's hard to choose what I really need. ANother option is to bring something from home, but it's even worse - takes time to cook it at home, then carry the stuff in a bag, heat it in microwave, carry the dishes etc back home... Don't know what to do...

thanks Kirk. And guess what? I do understand you pretty well. Till 17yo I was 115kg, no woman would even look at me, whilst all my friends were getting laid around. Then i suddenly decided to diet, and stopped eating. In one year I lost 30kgs. Then I grew up put on some weight and finish naturally building my body, even if i am not perfect I do feel really good now and my health and my ability to normally relate to others is great too.

being fat sucked and i was lucky because i was a funny guy so at least i have never experienced discrimination.

take care mate

Depending on what it is, it can still work. If you want comments, give us some examples.

Today I had my standard breakfast: cheese omelet and some bacon, coffee with cream, water.

Lunch: The same shrimp salad, but a small slice of quiche (the crust was a no-no, but sooo good).

Dinner: Left over ragu (made with ground beef, carrots, red pepper, onion, garlic . . . with some green beans in it), slice of ciabatta with butter (I will pay for that tomorrow).

Lots of water.

Between the quiche crust and the slice of bread, I'm expecting a bad day on the scale tomorrow morning. Maybe I walked enough to cancel it out and just hold steady . . . Vamos a ver.

Going to open a bottle of wine now.

I am planning to start in the middle of next week. Thinking of Zone diet:makes more sense to me - all in balance. I'm not eating a lot of meat, only when my body craves it. Mostly chicken.
I have MUCH more than 5 kg to loose....
Good luck!

I think that different diets work for different people and you have to find what works for you. Although, that said, they all need to involve a variety of healthy foods, in healthy portions. And moderate exercise.

I tried doing Zone years ago and found I couldn't figure out what I could eat. I don't do well with "no/low fat."

Personally, I think staying far away from anything processed is always a good thing (she says as she eats a slice of bacon . . .). Cook from scratch. Buy good ingrediants. And make food you like! There's no need to torture yourself. Figure out what you can eat and make it well and savor it.

I used to go to a nice restaurant and get the vegetable soup and the salmon with sauteed spinach for lunch. It felt luxurious to eat it, but it was all on my program. I felt like I was indulging myself, not depriving.

Oh, and when you have the urge to cheat, go clothes shopping instead!

OK, a week has passed. Any results?

My scales showed today I'd lost 4 kilos :eek: I felt, of course, that I lost some weight, but didn't think it was that much.

No bread (actually I never eat it), no cackes (torty), but a few cackes (pechenje), no porridge, but I can't stay off jam and candies. Vegetables, meat, eggs, juices. I guess the main thing is just to eat less.

I am not sure, though, that I will keep on going like that. Seems too easy.

I have the other problem, I was slim coming Russia. Now my wife and others are worried about me losing weight.
It is time to eat what I like to eat, prime steaks, cream cakes, and good cream cakes,and plenty of curries. What do you think.

Because I'm getting fed up with Russian soups , and I hate the Russian sausages in comparison to British sausages. I think it's time to search for what I like and regain my weight. As I am in fact under weight at the moment. Ihave never had a problem of being overweight even when I ate well. My family, relatives are all slim. it must be the way you are born, it's hereditory. Some of the girls have some some problems , but nothing major, they are all slim and well shaped.

To summarise, I was lean and in good shape when I first came to Russia, but I am now concerned about being underweight. Perhaps the Spring, and planning my own recipes will improve my appetite the rest of this year.

I am in moscow for 2 months and on diet for last 4 weeks. I lost 5kg. I was a professional volleyball player but I had 2 knee operations in last 2 years, then I had 18 extra kg ! I am really feeling bad about it and whatever i tried in my counrty I couldnt do it. But now in moscow I have a very planned days. I eat at same times everyday. 8am, 1pm, 6pm. They are usually equal portions. But most important thing is I never eat after 6-7pm. That is important ! If you feel too hungry late at night maybe an apple or just herbal tea. And I drink 3lt water everyday min. I havent started gym or swimming yet, but should start urgently. Cos after this lost 5 kg, it is just stopped. it is been 10 days I am still same. I think this means those 5 kg was really extra and now I have reached my real fat level. Do you think I should do some extra things ?

Bels and emrahin, I am absolutely sure that any diet (to lose or gain weight) should be individual and based on the result of a biochemical blood test. What I really want to do is to find a good dietitian who could guide me through the process of diet. We may never even suspect what food is good/bad for us.

I eat 3 or 4 small meals per day and I avoid eating junk foods or drinks with sugar. I managed to stay 75 - 80 kg. My wife thinks I need to eat more but I don't think so. I like the way I am since being lighter makes my life more comfortable.

I've seen people not eat anything all day except big dinner at night. That's a big mistake because our body goes in food conservation mode if we don't eat regularly. If we eat regularly then our body will burn more calories and we'll stay thin. Our body isn't stupid like we think.

I lost around 8 kilo since I arrived in Moscow bit less than a year ago. Result off no car, I generally don't like the food and lot's of sports. Advantage of an expensive sportsclub is that you go or you feel guilty. Still trying for an extra 6 kilo but that seems impossible. Need to be able to run for that and that's not easy in Moscow....

Lent is not about dieting. This is mixing up things. Read this article how to eat during lent. http://www.palitra-pitania.ru/2011/02/news-053-post-food_eng/?lang=en

What is your BMI that you say 6 additional KGs is not possible? Should be with the right guidance if you are above a BMI of 25. If below 25, really, why bother, everything is fine. http://www.palitra-pitania.ru/ourservices_eng/weightloss_eng/?lang=en

Bro, you don't care about yourself...

WTF you did at Rostiks IN KRASNODAR???!!! 8))) Were there no other places to sit? 8(

Loosing weight this way is VERY dangerous, beleive me, I'm military doctor (reservist);)

Take care...

BTW, did you use ordinary hospital or commercial one?

normal, the infection hospital...we were under quarantine...quite a few in there....not really sure if the first time around is the same as the second or something else...truly awful hospital conditions, everyone says it is the worst hospital in krasnodar....but some funny moments when they wouldnt let others go out for smokes or not to have sugar in an evening tea...so theguys removed a window and snuck out and ran to their shops in their pyjamas! too funny...crazy place....we had five beds and 3 sashas....

Buying books doesn't make losing weight. Especially if you don't take attention of what they say.

You will lose weight by:

-burning more calories than you eat, everyday
-avoiding sugar and fat
-eating less
-making exercices
-getting informed about food
-giving a high importance to your diet

All things that nobody with working taste buds wants to do.

this is just sooooooo painful... i have been here for a little over 2 years now and i have put on 20 pounds.......... considering that i exercise regularly and don't go out that much this is extremely frustrating!

what really pisses me off is that when i go back to europe, i always lose weight! even though there i am eating and drinking whatever i want and not exercising at all!!!!

a nutritionist told me that it can be due to the quality of products here and also the the way food is preserved and cooked etc. i don't usually have enough time to cook all of my own meals so chances are during the week i will grab something on the go for lunch or possibly dinner.

maybe it's also the stress of being here... i don't know anymore... a friend just moved back to zurich, having put on 40 pounds in 2 years here, and has been losing weight steadily, approx 5 pounds per week, eating fairly similar things and not exercising...

maybe it's all the VODKA!!! hahahaha!

actually stress should not be underestimated when it comes to weightloss... your body will hold on to every calorie when you are stressed. maybe that's it for me, i haven't really enjoyed living here...

TR, it is misspelling, I think. Gemo in Russian/Latin, which is more correct, means smth connected to blood. These people http://www.gemocod.ru/gemocod.html are sure that diet should be based on the blood group No. and some other things.
And -cod there is about code, not fish ;)

What's Gemma got to do with it? :confused:

Three weeks ago when my wife announced her intention of going on a diet, my first reaction was to remind her that the великий пост (Lenten Fast) had already begun and she'd refused to follow it, even though I'd offered to follow it as well. She put me right about that by pointing out that the fast isn't a diet, in fact in its unappetising vegan way it can be just as profuse in calories as anything served up in Macdonalds. I remained sceptical; it was the umpteenth time in our nearly 13 years of married life that I'd heard her resolve to go on a diet. But this time she's persevering, and I owe it to her not to guzzle forbidden yummies in front of her. The hardest part for her (as it would be for me) is eschewing chocolate and sugar. I've made a note of Penelope's recipe for sweetening cocoa without sugar (see her post earlier in this thread) but an evening mug of cocoa, no matter how satisfying, is an inadequate substitute for voraciously consuming bars of chocolate and a daily ration of 100g or so of delicious chocolate confetti, especially when a little slab makes all the difference to the taste of a small cup of bitter coffee (I've just had three of my favourite chocolate "морские конфети" with my evening ration of strong coffee, but I have to eat it surreptitiously lest my dieting spouse see it and be overcome by temptation). Can anyone recommend a form of chocolate/candy/конфет call it what you like that actually tastes like the real thing but doesn't have the same calorie content?

Look in the special 'diet' section of a supermarket, like Alie Parusa. They have chocolate that is sweetened with fructose/low sugar which is not bad. I believe the brand is German, with many assorted flavours.
