I’ve struggled for 3 years to lose the weight on my belly, thighs and hips. My left hip has so much more fat that the other it is obviously bigger.

I have been on a strict calorie diet consisting of lean protein, vegetables and grains/nuts and yogurt/cheese. No sugar drinks, no fruit juice. Water only and green tea.

I work out 5 days a week for about 1 hour, sometimes more. I’ve been to my doctor and he wants me to weigh in at 125 to 135 pounds.

I am so very sad and frustrated. The closest I got to that was 147 last summer. I feel like I just go up and down and up and down. This Easter I saw pictures of my face and realized I am looking fat in the face and bloated.

So upsetting. None of my clothes fit anymore without my belly hanging over. My bras are beginning to feel very tight and I don’t want to go up a size as I am already in a D cup!

I am beginning to lose hope but I don’t want to continue to gain more weight. I don’t have cookies or chips in my home and I don’t snack on stuff like that. No fast food. What is going on? Why can’t I lose anything?

My doctor says the tests for my metabolism is normal and maybe I am just eating too much. How can this be?

My usual food intake per day is one egg and whole grain toast and coffee, turkey with some carrots and celery and yogurt and water, chicken and rice with vegetables.

I read about your salad and protein diet…will that work for me?

I know that to some I probably don’t seem that overweight but my mother, and two brothers are diabetic and have high blood pressure. So far my tests have come back ok but I am worried because I don’t want to get sick like them and I have a fear I will just keep adding pounds. Can you help?

Thanks for listening,
California, USA

Hi Sissy, protein diet is the most effective diet and it always works, so try it and you will see fastest results. Try to eat simple and as natural as possible – this means veggies, meat, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, fruits.
