I lost 30 lbs in 5 months by switching to a vegan diet with no processed foods without even stepping foot in a gym. Then after I lost all that weight and was about 15 lbs away from my goal weight I decided to change things up a little bit. I workout everyday. I lift weighst and do cardio. I also do yoga and tennis on my days off. I am still a vegetarian but I allow myself eggwhites and certain milk products(whey protein . A diet high in lean proteins and unlimited veggies(steamed), low in starches and eating dinner earlier made a huge differance. The best lean proteins are tilapia, chicken, turkey, egg whites and super advanced whey protein(which i mix with water after each workout). Alcohol has a lot of calories, especially wine which has alot of sugar and can make you bloated. Jamie eastins(sp?) live fit trainer on bodybuilding.com taught me all of this. I am 5'3 also and a year ago i was 165 and now I am 120. I was about 135 when I started her training program.
