I eat a lot and still loose weight,
This review is from: The Big Breakfast Diet: Eat Big Before 9 A.M. and Lose Big for Life (Paperback)
I started this diet a month ago. I am a 39 year old male and my weight has been creeping up since reaching my goal weight last November. I tried every diet and my weight kept going up. First day on this diet I ate 900 kcal and 65 g protein for breakfast and I was very hungry in the afternoon and needless to say I ate too much and almost gave up. Next day, I decided to increase my protein for breakfast and see what happens. I ate 1170 kcal and 90 g protein for breakfast and was full all day. I ate 600 kcal lunch and 500 kcal dinner and next day my weight went down. I lost 7 lbs first week and I am now only 3 lbs away from my goal. I wished I knew this diet before starting to loose weight 2 years ago. I am so satisfied with food after breakfast and I have so much energy it's amazing. I must admit that I do not follow her recipes except the stew which I make with whatever veggies are in season. This is no low-carb diet. You eat lots of healthy carbs and a mandatory "treat" for breakfast. I do still count calories but noticed that it does not matter much on this plan. I eat more than in 2 years (~ 2,200 - 2,400 kcal per day) and still loose weight.
