Simple carbs, refined and over-processed foods. I try to eat as much whole, organic, non-GMO food as possible!

I basically followed the diabetic diet but overate and did the seesaw bit for years, lost and regained the weight many times over. When a co-worker commented that she thought I was losing weight, I decided to actually do something about it. The only items I cut out were fried foods and rich desserts - and didn't feel obliged to empty my plate!!!! The first six months I lost 60 lbs, and the 2nd six months I lost approx. 30-40 lbs. In the following years I would lose some and then hit a plateau. Now ten years have gone by and I have lost a total of 170 lbs. and have never gained any of it back. In the past year and a half I have remained within two lbs. of my goal. Although due to health problem and old age I didn't regain my figure as I'm unable to exercise other than walk on a fairly regular basis, but I eat more natural foods and am content with the fact that I'm eating a healthier and more balanced diet and including more fibres.

i keep away from nything carbohydrate except for low carbo vegetables, one slice 100% whole wheat bread
and of course fast food, deserts, fruit except for an occasional green apple. A very occasional dietetic ice cream (t0hey are terrible where I live), a teaspoon full of someone else;s dessert,etc. No beans, lentils, pasta, etc. It;s hard but doable, if necessary.

I avoid fried foods mostly because of my IBS. I like them, but they don't like me. I have to eat mostly bland diets. I don't need to add sugar to my shredded wheat if I add a small can of fruit cocktail and/or a banana. I eat a lot of chicken and fish and avoid red meats like steak. Eventually, I'll avoid the fried chicken and prepare skinless chicken, baked or boiled in a stew mixed with frozen veggies and an onion. Adding brocoli and asparagus for cancer fighters.

Now that the weather is getting warmer, I've been outdoors climbing mountains on strenuous rugged trails. It's rough for us folks over 65, but more folks of all ages are met on the mountain trails. I met a 76 year-old woman on her monthly climb on Table Rock Mountain Trail in upstate South Carolina near the North Carolina state line. North and South Carolina share a large wilderness area with many long hiking trails (the Foothills Trail is 76 miles long) and plenty of hikers out running off weight.
