I have to be honest. I changed my lifestyle and now I eat whatever I want. The hard part was changing my mindset to make it want to eat healthy food. Once my mindset was changed it is a walk in the part to stay where I am. My diet was low fat, it did work. I did have 4 portions of fat a day including an obligatory FLax seed serving every single morning. The rest from nuts, dark chocolate and fish. I love nuts and guzzle down on them. They give me energy. I told my fiancee once I was low on energy and she told me it was because i lacked nuts... then the story changed.
I went from 230#s @ 28% fat to 161#s @ 5% body fat with the provided diet. I love it and whenever I "have to" eat a hamburger I get nauseous since I changed my mindset to think that lettuce and chicken tastes great therefore my tongue dislikes high fat and too many carbs. I threw all artificial sugar out the window and sodas, replaced with brown sugar if anything.
Link below of my progress from 182 to 161. Those are the tough 20#s.
