I have been eating fat-free for about 2 years. I lost 15 lbs. and have kept it off. In the beginning when I got a craving I would wait for so long
then give in. This seemed to help me in the beginning. In the past 6 mo. I have also went low sugar and semi-vegetarian. I have acquired new tastes
with my diet changes and I really don't miss the fat or sugar(99% of the time) It does take a committment to keep up with the changes. I also found
after the first 5 lbs I lost the weight loss was very slow.
