    Hey guys,

    Been looking at different diets to drop a few pounds at least (lock down pounds esp,) I have been reading a lot on the 1000 cal diet. Anyone have suggestions or comments on this diet?

    Not a fan of rapid weight loss schemes, Bro. The problem is that they digest your own muscle as you rid the fat. You can prevent some (but not all) of this with a concurrent, dedicated workout program that includes weights; but you got an Achilles problem to deal with, so that wouldn't bode well for preserving your lower body musculature. I would aim for a loss of 1 pound every 2 weeks or so. At the end of the 1st year, you're down 24 lbs and lookin' sharp. Additional benefit--you should have no skin scarring and should not need surgery to remove excess skin. Don't know if you eat out or at home, prepared foods vs. scratch, etc. It all makes a difference. A minor change in your lifestyle that occurs everyday will make a remarkable difference over time. For example, add a couple of miles a day on a hand cycle machine and slowly increase the resistance over time.

    As far as intake, no alcohol whatsoever; it's just empty calories. Likewise, no snacks. About 1/2 hour before dinner, enjoy half an avocado with fat-free Catalina dressing poured in where the pit was removed. It's incredibly good and it acts as an appetite suppressant. If your main course is something with a sauce, it should come out of the refrigerator so that any fat has hardened at the surface and can be removed before reheating.

    Humans do not have a very good thirst signal. Unless you are desperately dehydrated, you body will simply send a hunger signal. An old fashioned glass filled with unsweetened vanilla flavor almond milk and a few ice cubes is a real treat and it satisfies both issues with just 30 calories. I sweeten mine with a little stevia.

    Meantime, embrace your inner bear. Get some good-looking clothes that fit and feel comfortable, stand tall and be proud. You have the bone structure of an endomorph; you're not supposed to look like a scarecrow.
