  • The safe limit for weight loss is 2 to 3 pounds per week after the first two weeks. Losing weight isn't about removing dairy, red meat, pasta or cabs from your diet, it's about moderating the foods that you eat, eating more complex carbohydrates and choosing the right foods. For example, eliminating artificial sweeters will actually help in weight loss because eating artificially sweetened food actually makes the body crave sugar. Eating a whole grain pasta in moderation will stay with you and burn slower than eating white wheat products. Look to increase your eating of healthy vegetables and fruits. Eat all meats in moderation and most importantly drink plenty of fluids because you need to be able to pee out the toxins in your body.
  • Damn! Make sure you get your protein from somewhere.
  • It really depends on how many calories you consume, not what you consume. In order to lose one pound you need to burn an extra 3500 calories. You can cut 3500 calories a week from your diet, or from exercise (the best is a combo of both). You could in theory eat nothing but red meat (although I wouldn't recommend it) and lose weight...as long as you have consumed 3500 calories less than your BMR (basal metabolic rate). You could also gain weight eating the diet you described, if you eat in excess of 3500 more than your BMR. The magic number is 3500 per pound. Create a deficit you will lose a pound...create an excess and you will gain. The reason some of the foods you described cause weight gain is because they are higher in calories than produce, lean protein and whole grains. You will eat a larger quantity of them to feel 'full'. If you eat a plate of veggies you will consume roughly the same amount for that feeling of fullness but will have eaten just a fraction of the calories.
  • It depends on other factors involved, such as what you ARE eating and how much of it. That's a good start though. Cutting out those things will definately help.
  • If you lose more than 2 lbs a week you'll be losing muscle mass not just fat
