Hi Susi -

When you say you have "quite a good diet" what does that mean exactly. My wife is 43 years old and recently lost 50 pounds by simply cleaning up her diet and getting rid of the bad carbs. She really watches her sugars and starches and tries to eat lean meats such as chicken and fish with vegetables. Its been about 5 months but she has progressed well.
