Sounds like you are on a better track now - but like everyone has said - never good to starve yourself. Really need to watch - and change your entire lifestyle as Sherie has said.

Weight loss, like weight gain, takes time. Be good to your body - and listen to Sherie above - she has given invaluable tips.

Starving yourself will never be a good way to loose weight. You should loose weight the healthy way. Eating a healthy balanced meal along with proper regular exercise should be your way to loose weight. Your new diet plan looks good. At least your not starving yourself anymore.

Eating 5-to-6 meals a day keeps your hunger levels way down so... You will stay satisfied longer and eating 5-to-6 meals a day keeps your energy levels high throughout the day. In addition, I do not think we need to sacrifice our love for food. I do not agree that you will need to starve yourself. The key here is to eat in moderation, my friend Christopher Guerriero once told me that I need to eat low fat longevity foods like salmon almonds, red grapes, blueberries, garlic, spinach and whole grains.

I have a thyroid issue, stressed lifestyle and could not lose weight. I have tried many different diets, weight training, PX90, cardio workouts, starvation, perscription pills, natural herbs...everything. I have found MY key to losing weight. I hope this helps:

Exercise is important but about 80% is what we eat, how much, and how often.

Your body like a control devise controls fat levels by changing the efficiency with which it uses the energy when dietary habits change. As you diet and begin to lose weight and to keep at your "settling point weight level" your body will become more efficient in using its energy (that is why after a while of a low-calorie diet you stop losing weight for a while, because efficient means use less). Only by permanent diet and lifestyle changes can a change in this settling point be permanent. The key is: protein at almost every meal (about 2 oz.) only have a small complex carb with protein. For me to lose weight I had to cut out the all oils, dairy, salt, white flour, sugar (I do use a little cooking spray and powdered parmesan cheese though).

I noticed that the only carbs you have are fruit (too much fruit). When you eliminate complex carbohydrates (potatoes, yams, sweet potatoes, rice, and oatmeal) the body will start to do 2 undesireable things: 1. It will begin to use your lean muscle tissue for energy instead of fat (called catabolism) because your body needs glucose. and 2. You can get to the point where your system shuts down and you feel weak. The brain's SOLE source of fuel is glucose, which it gets from carbs. So for each of your meals you need 1/2 cup of carbs! P.S. Fruit is also a carb but they turn into sugar faster in your body than the complex carbs - even though fruits are better than simple carbs)

Fruits only 2 to 3 times a day(breakfast and midmorning snack preferably) :
1/2 cup of: Grapefuit, rasberry, blueberry, blackberry, peach, pineapple, or strawberry or
1/4 cup of: apple, cantaloupe, honeydew, papaya, pears, and plums
(if you have 3 times the last should be alone for an optional 6th meal: PM snack) REMEMBER that fruits are carbohydrates and each of the 5 meals should have 2 oz and protein and one complex carb and make sure you add to at least two of your meals colorful veggies *except starchy veggies like corn and green peas.

Here is the fun part: To burn fat only, your exercise consists of 30 to 60 minutes of walking that maintains a heart rate of between 55% and 65%. Here is the equation: 220 minus "your age" = MAX RATE. Then, MAX RATE times .65. (I'm 47 so my MAX is 220 - 47 = 173. 173 x .65 = 113) So I do not go over 113. Sounds slow but at this rate so you burn fat...faster and you end up buning glucose (sugar)!

I also have 1 or 2 days each week when I weight train to build muscle.

Supplements: Acai berry and colon cleanse.

Not ONE thing works. All together it makes a lifestyle change. :)

Keep one thing in mind, starving is not going to help you in weight loss in anyways, instead they bring you some more problem. Try some recommended diet methods.

WOW.. 30-35 pounds in a month is waaay too much. It will be way too easy to put that back on if you don't build up the required muscle to maintain that weight loss. Your new goal of 2 pounds a week is a realistic one and safe. You're also going to be experiencing serious binging wants. Stay strong to your new diet as it is a good one. I hope you are including exercise in your new plan?

I know this is just an example of one day, you should still keep varying up your diet to get a full assortment of fruits and veggies. Also dont forget about turkey, salmon, tuna, extra lean ground beef as excellent sources of protein.
