Ten Diet Tweaks to Lose Weight for Life!

5:2 Diet
Posted by Rebecca (California ) on 04/21/2024

My weight has always been 110 since college. I'm older now when I went off plants based hormones my weight jumped from 110 to 121. I was also staying up late working on a project which I believe contributed to weight gain. Being sleep deprived changes glucose metabolism and alter hormones involved metabolism. The 5: 2 diet which is eating regular healthy meals five days a week and for two days you cut calories to 500. I would only eat, between 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Since I wanted faster results, one day out of the week I only drink water with lemon. This seemed so much easier for me. My naturopathic put me got back on my plant based hormones and I also began jumping rope for ten minutes a day. In a little over five weeks my weight is back down to 110. Intermittent fasting is very powerful and it has helped a lot of people lose weight and improved their health. Two very informative doctors are discussing the powerful benefits of intermittent fasting, Dr. Jason Fung and Dr. Pradip Jamnadas he is director of cardiovascular

It's because this combination can drop blood sugar quickly, so either lower the amount, don't mix lemon with apple cider or start healthy snacking.

I have mentioned something about Inositol in a post or two.

In four months, it took 20 pounds off me, it is still off. It helped my daughter's excess heavy bleeding from a fibroid to regulate.

Here is some basic information on this supplement. You will learn the different types of Inositol and take your pick for your health and situation.

The body creates symptoms for a reason...symptom suppressing drugs cause more harm...your body has high blood pressure for a reason...you need to get to the root cause as to why your body is raising its blood pressure...

Also, most pharmaceutical drugs are toxic. Developing headaches is normal when your body has an overabundance of toxicity...as the body detoxes ... toxins are released into the blood stream for elimination which will make many believe the treatment is making them sick when in reality, it's Healing. Symptoms are initiated by the body to remove excess toxicity.

An overweight body = Toxic body

It's perfectly normal as we're losing weight to develop headaches & other symptoms...as the body is losing fat... the toxins stored within the fat are being released into the bloodstream for exit out of the body...symptoms are initiated by the body to remove excess toxicity.

Neem Tea
Posted by HisJewel (New York) on 10/09/2022

O' My, Did I Write That?

As ORH once said, when I see some of my posts, I wonder who was that person. I decided to look at the weight loss posts and was surprised to see my reviews about Neem in the midst, they were from 2016. Life got much more interesting soon after that. Mother loved to go shopping every nice day, I would meet her and we would always have lunch out.

Anyway, I will see if this will happen twice. I will give Neem a few weeks and see if I can shake the weight off again.


Hi AC,

Don't know if you are still around, but you was asking if anyone had tried Fennel herb and whether it was good for weight loss or eyesight? I have always suffered with chronic constipation from a little girl and just over a year ago, it was seriously constipated for 6 WEEKS! I simply could not go. I tried 7 drugs from the NHS, none of them worked. I tried herbs, nope! I was desperate and my son Paul, was worried sick because he knew I would not go to hospital. I remember having a little jar somewhere with a powdered herb in it and thought "i wonder what ii bought that for?" It was Fennel and I found it hidden in the back of the cupboard! I took a flat teaspoon in my coffee, and a miracle occurred! Within 1 hour I went to the toilet, no pain, just went normally as though I had never been constipated! My son was releived and so was I! Now, nothing and I mean nothing works for me, despite my trying other stuff for constipation, but Fennel does it every single time. No pain, no diarreah, I just go normal within the hour to two hours of taking it in my coffee, incidentally I just ordered another 400 grams because I would be lost without it. Now I have been taking this for about 8 months virtually every day. Nope! No weight loss! My eye sight is pretty bad, and I know this for certain because April 2021, I had a very serious emergency operation for Diverticulitis and was rushed to hospital, within 10 days of being in hospital, I lost 14 lbs in weight! Simply because I couldn't eat a single thing the hospital gave me due to the most chronic acid reflux!! I was actually over the moon because I had desperately been trying to lose weight and I went from 9 stone 2 lbs to 8 stone!! Oh 16 lbs I lost!

Now I have put all the weight back on and am exactly 9 stone 2 lbs again! I am only 4 ft 9 inches tall and very petite, and although curvy at the waist, and quite nice figured for my age, 9 stone 2 lbs makes me look thick set because I am so short!! So of course, like you I came back to Earth Clinic to have a read up. Now it could be that Fennel will help you lose weight? But I have just weighed myself, and nope I am 9 stone 2 lbs, so the weight I lost last year has all come back on. I only eat 1 meal per day, and a salad or some fruit or couple salad sandwiches later in the evening, I doubt I even eat more than 1500 calories a day, but it could be because I don't exercise. So just wanted to explain that I do take Fennel powder every single day, twice a day, I regret I haven't lost any weight from it, but it is absolutely brilliant, if you suffer with constipation! It is for me anyway! Your message is a bit old so not sure if you still come online, or you've probably found your answer by now, but just in case anyone else is curious, it could help people lose weight but sadly not for me it never!

I actually receive emails from Earth clinic and I put them in my emails to keep and reply or read them when I have more time. I happen to check every email from Earth clinic as my email list was really piling up and saw someone talk about weight loss with eggs? So I came online to Earth clinic and so far I have spent hours reading about ACV and weight loss but nothing about eggs yet? However, I spent hours reading and noticed Stella mentioning she had a craving for salt? Which surprised me at the time of reading, because I don't know if people are aware of it, but I found out quite a while back on Earth clinic another reviewer stating that ACV REMOVES EXCESS SALT FROM YOUR BODY WHEN YOU SLEEP HENCE NO BAGS THE NEXT MORNING? OH BRILLIANT I THOUGHT LOL However, Stella's message was from 2012, and MC from Texas, kindly told Stella the reason even though she may not have returned to Earth clinic? I was very pleased to hear that NM Gave an explanation as to why Stella might be craving salt? And they say it is because Potassium in orange juice craves salt? So if you don't take orange juice you might remove excess salt when you sleep and if you use orange juice with ACV you might crave salt? Very interesting to know! Because I like Stella don't like salt either and never have. So I thought I would mention it here, because it seems you might lose the bags under your eyes! Another health benefit! Yup I am all for that. Thanks NM!! Rosina Lock from East London

Chia Seeds
Posted by ROSINA LOCK (east end of London UK) on 09/05/2022

I found Xiang's message about Chia seeds quite interesting, however whilst it sounded good, I cringed at their message for the following reason:

WARNING!! Xiang explained that Chia seeds expand 9 times their own weight in water and that is why they keep you full. and 1 tablespoon of Chia seeds makes 9 tablespoons of hunger fighting gel. PLEASE READ: I READ A STORY ABOUT A YEAR AGO WHEREBY A GUY KEPT POPPING CHIA SEEDS IN HIS MOUTH. THEY EXPANDED AND WAS RUSHED TO HOSPITAL, BUT HE DIED BECAUSE THE CHIA SEEDS SWELLED UP IN HIS WINDPIPE AND CHOKED HIM TO DEATH! Please be very careful because everytime I hear the mention of Chia Seeds I cringe! I won't even attempt to use them. You need to drink a lot of water with Chia Seeds, and there are a few other seeds that can swell up like this, not sure but I think Pumpkin seeds might be one as well. Just take a small amount of Chia seeds with plenty of water, due to reading about the guy dying because they all swelled up in his windpipe, I only buy any seeds in POWDER FORM! So whilst Chia seeds might be very good, be careful! I don't understand why some of these products don't explain any type of danger like this! It should be on the packets by law! Rosina from UK

Hello! That's awesome that it's working for you. Yay!

Just one suggestion on I've recently learned is don't wash your teeth directly after using acv. It'll wear the enamel faster. Wait 30 minutes or so before brushing.

It's 2022 but I'll go ahead anyway... I was pregnant when I started taking ACV and Molasses not only did I keep the weight off I was overall very healthy and my doctor was pleased after each antenatal visit. But for some unknown reason, I stopped taking them and before I knew it, I was adding weight, bloated and puffy face with breakouts. This time I looked very pregnant unlike before I had a gentle glow. Needless to say, I went back to ACV and molasses.

During the pandemic, I had gained eight pounds and for the first time my cholesterol went up. I read Cholesterol Down. Started eating doing the 5/2 then I went on to eat 500 calories three times a week it's so easy to do. I eat one meal a day around 2:00 pm and take my vitamins at the same time. I lost ten pounds, my cholesterol is normal, and I feel great.

Eggs +
Posted by Science (Cyprus) on 03/07/2022 21 posts

As a researcher, I found this the best way to work on my body:

1) 2-4 eggs per day

2) Light cheese 16% to 17% (do not use higher fat cheese)

3) Limited sugar (use stevia instead), limit potatoes, limit spaggetti, limit flour. This means that these should be used as less as possible.

Results were amazing for me, since I wanted to lose 6 to 7 kilos and this the only food combination that worked for me.

Hi Mama to Many -

Thanks for the update with your husband's weight loss.

Although, if he loses any more of his “insulation” and keeps feeling the cold, you may have to invest in some heavy-duty thermal long johns for his Christmas present!

I think you're right – one of the keys to success is having the odd non-diet meal. Everything in moderation (well, except for Thanksgiving and Christmas, heh, heh).

Speaking of which, have a very Happy Thanksgiving on Thursday!

Thanks for the info. I see it's about $90 and you need to prick your finger. So, I'll put a hold on it for now, but good to know. What's great is how you were able to do your own research quickly.

Dear Tessa,

You hit the nail on the head. I think teamwork is very helpful to weight loss....and lots of other things! "Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor."

My husband's weight loss had seemed to level off, but picked back up. He is now up to having lost 50lbs, in spite of a vacation in the last month! We took most of our food to an airbnb, but he had some planned diet splurges and did have seafood when we went out to eat. We went to the beach and he probably worked off anything extra between swimming in the ocean with the kids and taking walks with me. ;)

He has also taken the evening off the diet at wedding celebrations, etc. He still tries to be moderate in his choices and portion sizes.

One thing we have noticed now that the weather is cooler is that he is colder than he has ever been. He used to be hot natured. He has lost a lot of his insulation.

I have been trying lots of new recipes and a learned to make gluten free bread. (Minimalist Baker has a gluten free bread that is a bit of trouble but worth it! Not quite the same, but works well for sandwiches, toast, croutons, etc. She also has many other great sugar free, gluten free, vegan recipes that are not difficult to make. We have enjoyed all of them.)

Another teamwork story - a few years back my brother's friend wanted to lose weight. My brother is a marathon runner. He and his friend exercised mile for mile. His friend biked for each mile my brother ran. His friend did not make any dietary changes but over the course of many months he lost a shocking amount of weight. I suppose he burned calories and improved his metabolism with his cardio exercise.

What is the machine you use that measures cholesterol? You seem to have done your research. I've also read about sugar causing cholesterol, and that eggs don't create a "bad" cholesterol. My biggest problem is bread though.

2-3 Eggs Per Day
Posted by Jgny (Thousand Islands) on 11/12/2021

Do you eat any whole grain bread? I eat eggs daily at least 2 and it has not had any effect on my weight. I include one slice of 12 grain bread daily, maybe that is the problem?

2-3 Eggs Per Day
Posted by MissM (NY) on 10/21/2021

This would be considered a keto diet. If you eat protein and eliminate sugar you will easily drop weight. Keto is more balanced than just protein sources like eggs. It's proteins, good fats coconut oil, olive oil, not canola oil, and vegetables.

No sugars or low to no carbs, which means no white foods bread pasta, sugar.

You turn your body from a sugar burner to a fat burner.

I don't think it was just eating eggs that was the miracle worker, you were eating better quality food.

Hi Mama to Many -

What great results for your husband after three months on a gluten-free vegan diet - losing 40 pounds, almost no snoring, lowered blood pressure, etc. That is very impressive!

It was interesting to hear how he was able to adapt so readily to this diet after being a meat-and-potatoes sort of guy. Maybe there's hope for me :)

I'm sure his doctor will be very pleased with the results when he gets tested again in January.

Kudos to both of you - you're a very good team!

Take care,


Plant-Based Diet
Posted by Mama to Many (TN) on 10/14/2021

Hi all,

At a check up in July my husband had some bloodwork done. His bad cholesterol number was a concern. Due to a bad family history (his father died of a heart attack at age 37) the doctor wanted him to get a calcium score test done. Well the results of that were not good either. He had evidence of significant plaque in all four arteries of the heart. His doctor gave him two options - statins or a gluten free, no sugar, whole foods vegan diet.

Well, my husband did not want to go on statins. He is 55. We have seen what they did to our parents.

So he started eating vegan, gf, ns (no sugar). I, for the most part, have joined him. (Due to alpha gal allergy I can't eat mammal products anyway, and it wasn't much of a change for me.)

He has been eating this way for 3 months with very few exceptions. I have enjoyed being more creative with vegan cooking. I don't really feel like going to much trouble to cook for just myself, but I do love to make food for others.

He goes back in January for more bloodwork. I don't know how his cholesterol is or if this has improved the issue with plaque in his heart arteries. (I'll let you know, though! )

What surprised us both is that he has lost 40 pounds in the last three months, without even trying (about 15% of his weight.) He has had to buy new clothes.

This is the lowest weight he has had since our first year of marriage (1989.) He has been on diets before. He did the no carb/low carb diet 20 years ago (Atkins) a couple of times but he couldn't bear the diet long and he always gained it back pretty quickly.

My husband is a meat and potatoes kind of a guy. He loves a good burger. So he is surprised himself by how content he is on this diet. Eating out is harder but we have found options. He now loves Smoothie King. Chipotle works, too. There are lots of plant based meat substitutes that are close enough to the real deal that he says I could have fooled him. (I read a lot of labels as being meat free or dairy free doesn't necessarily mean it is particularly healthy.)

He eats oatmeal for breakfast nearly every day. I put bananas or fruit in it with erythritol/stevia sweetener. We have found that oatmilk in coffee is our favorite dairy alternative.

For lunch he eats hummus with sweet potatoes crackers, cashews, raw carrot sticks with guacamole. I send two apples with him and he eats them for snacks most days. Sometimes I have leftovers to send with him.

Dinner - chickpea pasta with a veggie marina, stir fry, beans and rice (with gauc and fried onions/peppers) etc. I serve lots of salads. I learned to make California rolls with brown rice.

He has a sweet tooth. I told him I thought it would get better and surprisingly it has. He does drink Stevia flavored carbonated drinks for a treat. He drinks a glass of wine with dinner a couple of times a week but has completely cut out beer (which went very well with burgers or pizza. :) )

His snoring has reduced by 90%, even when he ends up sleeping on his back.

His blood pressure has gone down and the doctor gave him the go-ahead to cut his blood pressure medicine in half. We hope he can get off of it eventually.

I have known him a long time. I have never seen him so faithful to a diet or so motivated. I am very proud of him. We are hopeful to move to sometime more Mediterranean down the road, as in, add in some chicken and fish.

I think there are many factors involved in the success of this diet for weight loss. He wasn't even doing it primarily to lose weight. He has not done any sort of fasting with it. He doesn't skip meals and eats when he is hungry. He snacks (on healthy stuff) when he is hungry and needs one. He has not increased exercise. He work in construction so he isn't sedentary, but he doesn't do much in the way of cardio. He may be eating less calories. The calories he consumes may be more efficiently used. It seems likely that he has less overall inflammation and perhaps that is a factor.

The weight loss has leveled out now, and that is fine.

Meanwhile, he said I could share his success story!

The headache is probably caused by the toxins that are escaping from your body during this process. Sometimes we get headaches or for the symptoms when we start to detox or start to get healthy. They shouldn't last more than 2 weeks maximum but it should start to feel relief quicker.

This guy ate like 6 bags of natural black licorice per day, excess in any estimation. And, since he was eating so much licorice, he did not eat other nutrients. What other obsessive traits did he have? Licorice, not licorice flavoring, is an herb that has definite reactions in your body. He self-harmed. He did not turn black, though maybe his mouth was black. As long as you don't overdo things, you should be okay.

Lol your comment to stop talking soy.... I thought the same thing. Read ages ago ted from Bangkok said to use soy capsules I think it was several times a day for weight loss and after fatty foods.

Green Tea, Garlic
Posted by Bee (Tampa, FL) on 06/03/2020

I would like to add a couple remedies for weight loss.

I am 38 years old and about 8 months ago I started gaining weight for no reason. I had not changed my diet. I went to the doctor to ensure nothing was wrong medically and they checked my thyroid and everything else. All was normal. The doctor felt my metabolism was slowing down due to my age. I tried cutting back on food and calories and still no weight loss. It was beyond frustrating. ACV did not help me and coconut oil was just plain gross to eat for me.

The only thing that was helping was a keto diet but as soon as I ate any carbs the weight would come right back in a couple of days. Who wants to live without carbs? Not me. I read about green tea and also saw a testimonial for garlic.

I know people take garlic to lower cholesterol but I had not heard about it for weight loss.

So I started drinking one cup of green tea during the day. And in the evening after dinner or before I go to sleep I chop up 3 cloves of garlic and swallow it with water. I am finally losing weight while eating regular food. Carbs and all. I have noticed that I lose more weight while doing the garlic/green tea combination daily, even though they both probably work on their own.

Posted by Holly (Atlanta ) on 03/13/2020

Does this cause any kind of jittery feeling? I have anxiety that I am managing fantastically with magnesium therapy but I need to lose weight. I'm wary of things that can raise my heart rate or give me that caffeine-like effect.

Posted by MTucker (Long Beach, Cali) on 07/18/2019

I started Resveratrol 3 months ago for weight loss in conjunction with a new diet (plant-based) and exercise. I take 200 mg capsules, three times a day. Lost a few pounds, but more remarkable to me is that my blood pressure is down, having good sleep, and super high energy during the day. I am extremely focused and getting a lot done because of it. Highly recommend.

Yacon Powder
Posted by Nat (Brooklyn, Ny) on 06/18/2020

Yacon syrup/powder helps support weight loss and helps improve intestinal motility.

The powder is much better tasting than the syrup. (bought it online from a nut/seed distributor).

One teaspoon to one tablespoon can be taken before a meal (mixed into water or just taken as a sweet powder), a few minutes to an hour before the meal.

* Too much can cause intestinal distress/diarrhea, (sometimes noticed only a few days later) so the dosage should be adjusted accordingly.

Yacon also lowers hunger level, so that one needs to eat less. It is also a pre-biotic helping to grow good bacteria.

It has many other benefits. It helps against certain cancers. It is anti-fungal. It helps to lower blood sugar, to lower cholesterol, to lower blood pressure. It helps the liver.

Vitamin C
Posted by Anon (Anon) on 06/07/2020


I have been overweight since gradeschool. Nobody pointed out that eating icecream every night before bed would cause weight gain... PCOS began in my 20s, from coffee? Chocolate? Birth control pills? Don't really know.

BUT!! High dose vitamin C has been *excellent* for exercise resistant weight problems!!!!, which was aparently a detox/edema issue.

I mix a couple grams of vitamin C with baking soda and water, let it fizz, and drink it. I don't even need to exercise.

I realized it was reducing my weight when I mixed it up one day (maybe with fresh lemon juice added) and for the first time kept adding baking soda until it didn't fizz any more. A few days after I noticed my thighs were much slimmer and firmer. I suspect it gave me kidney stones, though, so I use less now.

The vit c is making the weight come off in all the hard to lose places - belly, hips, thighs, face. Not sure if the baking soda is necessary. It might be. I like to mix in fresh lemon or lime juice.

Lasix and Slimfast (w/ hunger control) were also very effective for weight loss, but less healthy. Regular Slimfast always left me hungry, but the hunger control kind I would drink and not be hungry or tired or even want food all day. I used it for about two years, went from an 18 to a 14. I quit because of the sucralose in it.

If you are *very* desperate to lose weight though I would recommend it. Just make SURE you eat some fresh fruit or veggies every day to keep your bowels clean. And drink water.

I also recommend lots of garlic, cilantro, parsley, and turmeric for their detox properties.

When I was in gradeschool someone gave me diet soda ( Diet Rite if I recall) for the first time and I have a vived memory of how fuzzy and foggy my head was after. It was like just like static on a tv screen but in my head. I was formerly very energetic and cheerful but ever since have struggled. My grandmother drank a lot of the same diet soda and died of Alzhiemer's.

Multiple Remedies
Posted by Karen (Whitby, Ontario, Canada) on 07/27/2018

I am currently 75 pounds overweight. I have all of the symptoms of having a thyroid issue yet tests are normal. I am acidic. So I am taking the following daily:

flax seed, greens, a good multivitamin for 40+ women, a digestive enzyme plus ox bile with every meal, adrenal support, I stopped eating anything prepared and eat fresh veggies, fruit and lean protein. I also take 5-HTP and an herbal sleep aid. I make a tea daily with 2 litres water, ginger root, lemon, baking soda, ACV and honey.

None of this is making any difference. I usually have a protein shake with 3/4 c almond milk, a banana, greens and flax for breakfast with all of my supplements- then I won't eat much all day until 2-3 pm because I don't get hungry. I have been sleeping a lot. I have a hard time falling asleep at night then I can sleep until 12-1 pm if I am off.

I have battled with depression but the supplements help. I need to lose weight and get some energy, or I need to sleep and never eat to lose weight. One or the other I don't know what else to do. Exercise makes me gain. Help

Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Janet (Ca) on 11/02/2017

I have hypothyroidism and for years I fought to lose weight. I tried every diet out there, exercised everyday for 2-3 hours a day. I would lose 5-20 lbs and gain it all back, plus some. I finally saw a dietitian and found out I was doing it all wrong. She explained that people with thyroid issues, can't digest food fast enough, if large volumes of food are eaten. So I was put on a six mini meal a day plan. I was also told no more than thirty minutes of cardio. I did this and very slowly the weight was coming off. I wanted quicker results and saw an article about ACV, baking soda, and lemon. I have hypertension and opted out on baking soda.

I started drinking 2 TBSP of ACV in 4 ounces of water, three times a day. Immediately the pounds started melting away faster with the program I was on. I went from 259 lbs down to 197 lbs in six months. Even my blood pressure dropped to normal, my cholesterol levels were normal, and the inflammation in my joints were gone. If not for weight loss....do it for your health. It's worth it!!

Activated Charcoal
Posted by Sharon (Middletown, Ct) on 08/10/2017

I have been taking a teaspoon of activated charcoal first thing in the morning since the weather got hot. It has reduced my appetite considerably, given me more energy and I have no BO! I have also lost a few pounds without trying. I love it.
