The Quickest way to lose weight without exercising? Does the wheat diet work or the liquid diet?

Weight Loss Rules: There is not the quickest way to weight loss that does not include exercise. This bizarre question is a very common one. I cannot understand why so many humans think there is some fad or magic to weight loss. There is no magic. The only true weight loss that is able to be maintained means a full life change.
One must limit the calories, eat more protein calories than anything else and exercise! ...Read more

This lunch healthy for 18 y/o tryin 2 lose weight? 1 piece whole wheat bread, 1avacodo, slices of tomato/onion/bell pepper, & 4-6 oz chicken breast

OK but...: This is ok but if you really want to lose weight you might avoid the bread as fewer carbs will help; some feel gluten causes obesity so rice or quinoa might be better. I strongly advise organic chicken — see http://bit. Ly/19xax7e for the reasons.
My favorite diet for weight loss and overall health is dr. Fuhrman's nutritarian diet- see http://bit. Ly/1dhw9ht

Will I vet sick by just eating wheat bread with almond butter and honey? And just cereal? Will I loose weight?

Can I lose weight by eating only fruits and vegetables while taking considerable amounts of alcohol?

Can I lose weight by eating only fruits and vegetables while taking considerable amounts of alcohol?

Not safe or wise: Eating mostly (but not only) fruits and vegetables can help you lose weight but is dangerous because it won't supply enough essential protein- you must add beans, nuts, eggs or other proteins. Considerable amounts of alcohol undermines weight loss, as alcohol is converted into sugar. Large amounts of alcohol is VERY hazardous to health. See http://tinyurl.com/ownmrwq
