Briefly...My step-daughter (over 50) and her daughter and son-in-law (over 30) have lost weight and have kept it off for years.
I, on the other hand, dropped over 30 pounds, but the weight came back and then some.
I also had a horrible, horrible cholesterol ratio despite being on lipitor.
I went off the diet ; cut out red meat, dairy...ate more omegas, etc. and I have been off lipitor for over a year.
Really check into this diet...it has changed a lot and includes quite a bit of fresh veggies... it is NOT the myth diet of all meat, all fat.
I don't know your age, but I would NOT attempt it.
Again, you might want to look at your family history of cholesterol...lobster,other shellfish like shrimp and crawfish are high in LDL's (low density lipoproteins).
Also, at 16...please check with your family Doctor..
Just curious, but what are your present statistics?
Don't attempt anything that you can't do for a lifestyle.
Key to weight loss:
Eat smart (a variety of fresh fruits and veggies, lean protein, carbs), exercise, 10,000 steps per day.
Instead of having (for example) macaroni with a side of veggies...have veggies with a side of macaroni. If you get my point. Try to eat as clean as you can. Make all your dairy low/nonfat.
Enjoy whatever you want on holidays, birthday, vacation, but in moderation, and go back to what you do. (clean eating and exercise)
It's a crash diet, but I do watch my carbs closely. I try to have no carbs after 1pm. I get my nutrients in from breakfast and lunch, then have zero carbs from 1pm-9am. (20 hours, zero carbs, full nutrion) Also I did lose weight quickly on akins, but it put me in the hospital with an overactive throid. If they didn't catch it as quickly as they did, permenant damage would have been done, and I would have to be on medicine the rest of my life
My husband did it for quite a few months before I met him. He lost 60 pounds total. Then, after we started living together he has put on all the weight and then some, but its been the only diet that has worked for him. Just trying to watch portions doesn't do it for him. He is the type that doesn't feel satisfied unless they've had a big savory, fatty type meal.
If you do it right, it is very successful.
