    Hoping you guys can help. I am so confused with everything I read on weight loss. One diet says dont eat for 12 hours, another says to not go 2 hours w.o eating. One says to not eat more than 1000 calories and the other says not to eat too few. One says no carbs other then other reports say once you have carbs again you gain it all back plus some.

    So, here is my situation and give me ideas.

    I am 39. I am just getting over rupturing my achilles and haven't been able to walk on my foot for 6 weeks and have at least 2 more weeks before I can. Before the operation I was 256 and might be more now. I will have limited mobility for a but, until my leg goes back to normal. What kind of diet do you think would work best. Right now I was restricting calories to 1000-1300 a day but fear I might be working against myself. Looking for fat burners to help kick start things. Very depressed and need a change.

    Talk to a competent dietitian. Your case warrants it. If I were to depend on the advice of people who don't care about me, I would still be a skinny guy today.

    I'll be honest..youre always coming on here..asking about a magic bullet fat burner...That shit is garbage...If your indeed on a restricted diet under 1300 calories..The weight should be falling off..but it isn't..So your cheating...Be real and upfront with your realities..Stop looking for excuses and quick fixes for your failure to push away from the table...

    Cyborg is on the right track. See a dietician and ask about a balanced lower calorie diet to help you lose weight. Cutting way back is not going to do it in the long run and what you need is not some magic diet but a reasonable eating plan. Talk to the dietician about fiber, sugar highs and lows, how to eat to provide the right energy level.

    Also talk to the doctor about appropriate physical therapy and exercise routines you can use without being on your feet.

    The diets you are referring to are simply fads and not long term plans.

    I am not the best person for this thread, as my problem was being to skinny, but cyborg, and Ljay are correct. Also if you are cheating with your diet be honest and get it under control. You need to find a way to burn calories and take in less in order to lose weight, there is no other magic answers. It all boils down to that. You can incorporate boosts, but as long as you are cheating it will never work.

    Find workouts you can do and do them no excuses. Stop cheating on your diet if you are, no excuses.
