Default Lost Weight with Scarsdale Diet

Hello All,
Haven't been join to this site for very long but came and the weightloss pictures really inspired me. So I decided to go on the scarsdale diet. Went on it actually on Sunday. (10/14/07) and as of Saturday I was weighing 225lbs. Weighed in this morning (10/15/07) and scale says 221.6. I cannot believe it. I am going to stick with it for the first two weeks and then change up to do the Oprah Diet. Then I will go back to the scarsdale diet. I will keep this process up until I get to my desired weight of 130lbs.

Hey congrats on the weight loss!!! EXCELLENT news.

So what's the plan for AFTER, when you get to the 130 lbs? Cause' that's a real important thing to keep in mind as well. We want all of our hard work to remain in tact. Having a plan when getting to goal is really vital. It's never too early to think about maintenance.

Good luck to you.

I am planning on sticking with the Oprah Diet for maintenance. I know that I will be able to maintain it because I never want to see 226lbs again. I am going to do a total remakeover.

I meant to be just a teeny bit dubious when I asked about Oprah's diet. If you google Oprah's diet , you will get several claiming to be Oprah's diet. I believe she probably follows Bob Greene and exercises a lot. I don't believe that there is an actual Oprah's diet, just people who want to capitalize on her name.

Scarsdale is low carb/lower fat/low calorie. He only intends it for use in 2 week spans. Basically, its limited veggies, fruit, and lean proteins. This sort of diet plan is not sustainable health-wise for the long term, because it is very low calorie - a lot of the Scarsdale menus I've seen add up to under 800 calories a day.

Remember to only follow the plan for 2 weeks at a time, take a nice long break in between plan cycles, and if you have ANY abnormal symptoms (dizziness, hair falling out, heart rate changes, or anything that seems worrisome to you), see your doctor right away.

I am not a big fan of Scarsdale, if only because I believe that very low calorie plans, while a great tool for the obese if they are being monitored by physicians, are dangerous when practiced outside of direct physician supervision. Medifast, for example, is the same amount of calories as something like Scarsdale, but carefully formulated to make sure that all of the nutrients necessary are included, and requires patients to be under constant medical care. This is necessary because of the health risks and side effects of a very low calorie intake. Scarsdale is the same level of calories, but without the accompanying supervision.
