    It's been tough but I've lost 10lb in the last 2 months. I wanna lose another 10. It's hard to live with myself, all I have to do is cut out the duck fat :)

    A little bit of both. I've cut back a bit on carbohydrate intake, especially at night. I used to eat a giant meal for dinner but now it's a lowered carb and slightly higher protein diet with more salad greens. I think it's the lower carbs which does it. It means eating fewer calories also.

    Eating supper earlier in the day would help. It would allow you to burn off more of those supper calories.

    Kuan,
    Congratulations. It's not an easy thing to do, but it doesn't have to be difficult either.

    I have been in a program for the last 9 weeks or so and was going to unveil the before and after pictures in Mid October!
    I will do it again starting Oct. 7th for another 12 weeks and hope to have even more impressive before and after shots. (I hope anyway!)

    Keep it up and we can compare soon.

    So, if one were to subscribe to the Dr. Kuan diet, what one expect to be on the menu throughout the day???
    Thanks!

    Well, an example of my day would be...

    Breakfast: Bowl of cereal with 1% milk

    Mid morning: a banana or plum

    Lunch: Small bowl of noodles with raw garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil

    Mid afternoon: A Latte or Cappucino

    Dinner: Tandoori chicken with salad of some kind.

    And that's all folks :)

    dear kuan,
    did you cut back on caffine? or did you always only have one cup per day? i'm just curious as to whether that had any effect on the weight loss.

    Nope, didn't cut back on any caffeine at all. I drink it all morning... could be anything I need to cut back. I don't get Wendy's joke about being the wife of a construction worker... hrm. :puzzled:

    There's an excellent article at Waitrose where nutritionist Jane Clarke explains how choosing the right foods can improve the way you look and feel at every stage of your life.

    Healthy reading Kuan! :)
