    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    BTW, so I don't just rant, I just lost 18 pounds (mainly) with the Dolce diet since January.

    The presentation of it is incredibly Jersey Shore/Guido/tough guy bullshit, but it worked for me.

    I can't recommend a link, though, since they vary so much in quality, but there was a youtube channel that was essentially Dolce giving a cooking class, and that was really, really good.

    (Note though that I was never overweight, and very intentionally changed my diet when I had to cut back on training temporarily.)

And as I suspected the over consumption of protein is simply hype. I've been in the conditioning game as a career for a long time and fell for all the gimmicks and hype with diet. And no I'm not some animal loving hippie. I still hunt and still eat an occasional burger, but am convinced that fruit and starch fuel the body like nobody's business.
    What method did you have your body fat measured with?

    I have a friend do a 5 point skin fold caliper. Honestly I'm not crazy doing it all the time but I did it recently after noticing how much more definition I had gotten and also as a baseline to watch myself if case I was losing muscle mass. I'm not worried about it now and am convinced personally that I won't be going to back to my old high protein ways. It is amazing how pissed my friends have gotten accusing me of taking protein on the side or that just tell me your going to get sick. Everything has only excelled and not only in the area of exercise... And I want to help people, I kind of laugh at my friends and colleagues as they scramble to get their protein in and I'm chillin eating a whole pineapple. What really matters is training. Lift heavy weights for muscle, don't if you want to focus more on endurance sports. Simple

    The advice you're giving is unlikely to lead to the results that the people you're giving it to want.

    This post started with a dude wanting to lost weight (far be it why he wants to get to 120) so I chimed on what I did. Not really sure what you're talking about.

    You must try black tea in the morning. It helps loosing weight in a short span of time. Along wit this, continue with jogging, do not have fast food in a large quantity.

    Specifics of diet aside, most people fail IMNSHO because they just don't know how much they're eating and how much they are burning. There are lots of tools to help. I like myfitnesspal, they have a handy iPhone app (probably Android too), you can look up foods in their database, even scan bar codes. Once you have a handle on how many calories you are eating and how many you are burning you can set a deficit for a reasonable weight loss goal. 1 to 2 lbs a week is about the limit for most people, double digit losses are not feasible unless you are humungous or shedding water.

    As far as protein goes, you need it if you want to maintain muscle as you lose. You can get it from a vegan diet, it's just harder.

    Go post an intro in Newbietown and stop bumping multiple threads until you've read the rules of the forum and acclimated or all your posts will be swept into the abyss, no matter how helpful you think you are being.
