I would like to apologise for only answering your question today, but I was away and had asked for the DietDoc Message Board to be switched off in my absence, something that evidently was not done.
Your present BMI = 28,8 which is in the overweight category, so it would be good if you could lose at least 15 kg to get back to a BMI of 24 which is in the normal range. Because you have tried so many different diets and slimming pills to no avail and are constantly hungry, I would like to recommend that you consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will help you with a low-fat, low-glycaemic index diet which should assist in stopping the cravings and prevent the hunger pangs that always derail your attempts at losing weight. If you have problems with motivation to stick to a diet and to start doing daily exercise for 30 min on that orbitrek, then it may help to buy motivational tapes from organisations like Innertalk or Motivators, so contact www.innertalk.com or www.motivators.co.za and buy CDs or DVDs which can help you stick to your diet and exercise. The Cayenne and Maple Syrup mixture which the film stars use, is combined with a semi-starvation diet and it is the diet that causes their weightloss, not the mixture.
Do see a dietitian and start doing exercise today if possible.
