Hi, I started this diet today. I was looking up info on how many times we should eat to lose weight. I came across this diet and read lots of info here on this board. This my first day.

I am a short, very fat, 45 year old lady. I have a lot to lose (about 80 pounds), but what I want most is mental peace. I am tired of the diet merry-go-round...restrict, binge, restrict, binge.

Welcome! You can find some real peace here. And down the line, you may find that you're willing to "restrict" all on your own with no bingeing. Just keep going.

You’ve come to the right place for mental peace. That’s the same reason I began too. I recommend just focusing on getting the habits down. The weight loss will come on it’s on slowly but surely.

Best of luck!
