Update: Lost a few pounds by means of a proper diet. Nothing special, I just "read the manual" of how my body works and cut the crap on eating whatever and as much as I want. I loaded up on vegetables with every meal, can't handle drinking plain water though so I just make-do with non-caloric artificial sweetened apple juice and, this part is key, I eat healthy throughout the day at intervals short enough not to feel hungry. When hunger sets, there's the danger of the body going "starvation mode" and it gets into calorie saving. I'm not doing any strength exercise yet, just the same as always, about 6 hours of "Dance Central" (Xbawks 360 game) per week. Next week my feet will be completely healed and I'll get back to walk for hours playing Ingress. 94kg -> 89kg (210lb -> 196lb) It's a crash diet and it is NOT effective. Your body quickly adapts and gets into starvation mode, hindering any weight loss. I tried all kinds of crash diets and got no results. They seem to be working the first week then you stop losing weight.
