New to this Forum, The reason i have joined is because as of tomorrow i will consume only 500 calories a day. I often use myself as a human guinea pig. Ive tried many weight loss attempts from water fasts to The atkins diet. Whist doing the atkins diet i began to binge eat on carbs, Then i would retry the diet and once again i would binge, This caused me to gain 20lbs in a short period of time as i was eating around 4500 calories a day, more recently i have managed to maintain my weight by eating 2000 calories a day. Now im going to have 500 calories a day and hope to be my original weight by august 1st 2009. Any help or tips would be appriciated. could someone please tell me how i upload an avatar?
