I am on a diet recommended by a nutritionist, I walk an hour daily and I think I have already lost over ten pounds. I got two compliments at work. :banana

Great! :) What kind of diet is it? Anything 'special'?
What i do to is eat protein and whole wheat for breakfast, mostly omelettes with cheese..Then i'll have 3 servings of light yogurt throughout the day, and a slice of bread, fruit and salads, too, typical 'diet foods' and eat my last snack (whole wheat or good fats) one hour before sleep.
I tend to slack on walking and bike instead, i don't work out more than 30 minutes, most days and i still see results because of my "diet."
What do you do?

Daily I am allowed a certain portion of fruit, starches and proteins. Vegetables are unlimited. Also the dietician recommended an hour of exercise per day. This whole diet thing is truely amazing because there has been no diet that I could follow before. But what I am eating now actually makes me feel full and satisfied

Actually the nutiritionist says that you need to work out for at least twenty minutes. Because less than twenty minutes and you only burn sugar. More than twenty and you burn fat.

Really? So sugar AND water, right? Burning fat usually can take weeks so i've heard because you lose so much water (and sugar) first.
I manage to get by by eating all healthy foods, no sugar things like cookies, now its all so simple because you realize the facts about what foods will actually help you lose weight and they are pretty tasty too.
I always get confused over the 'right' way to eat..men and women's nutritional needs are different, and so there is no one size fits all way to do it.
