Have you guys ever tried no sugar or no carb diet?

something similar yeah - High protein, high (good) fat, lots of gym. currently losing a steady 2Kg a week. its hard man. I phased it out in stages. I started with no desserts, then no sugar in tea, then no fizzy drinks. at the moment I can have a cheat day each week and am on zero calorie/ sugar free fizzy drinks (team coke zero). 

the cravings are something awful. each time I crave sweet, I drink water or tea. 

the thing that keeps me going is that you do not go mental. if you start obsessing over how much sugar everything has, you will probably go crazy. avoid the major sweet stuff but dont worry too much about the confusing things, like porridge or baked beans or things like that.

take some good fats - the lethargy you are feeling is that you cant get energy from protein and low carb. fats are burnt readily as fuel so are a great source of energy. handful of walnuts? omega capsules? some boiled egg? whatever you fancy

Low sugar symptoms. It's terrible. Sugar is the major source of energy. Because we don't consume enough energy so we become fat. So you are not taking energy altogether. Either bear it. Or take a bit of that but work out like 30 min a day.

Avoiding artificial sugar isn't hard for me, I don't like tea, coffee and I am not that big on deserts. The problem for me is avoiding white rice and white bread, I love naan and unfortunately these basically turn into sugar so are not very good for you.

indeed. plus it gives you "ramadhan breath". 

people have been indoctrinated that all fats are bad and if you have even 1mg of fat, you WILL get cancer AIDS and die. 

in truth, (good) fats release energy faster than carbs. high protein, high (good) fat diet means you lose weight fast because your body is in a ketosis state, while feeling comfortable/ normal because you are getting your required amount of energy to function.

bro just try sticking to the diet you have currently, but taking your energy from good fats. see if it makes a difference to you. eg if you are feeling tired, eat a palmful of brazil nuts, or take some omega supplements first thing in the morning, or try and eat some oily fish

It's unecessary, Instead eat fish, It's rich in fat. Unless it is hard for you to get enough fats through your diet or you don't simply have time to cook.

Im hopelessly addicted to Pepsi and/or Mt. Dew. I once went 2 days without a can and it was one of the most miserable experiences of my life. Headaches, grouchy mood, etc..

I remember reading that a high sugar addiction is similar to a Cocaine addiction in that it triggers the same parts of the brain (Pleasure centers?) so people go into "withdrawal" when they don't get the fix.

I'm quite convinced that its the Soda lobby in the US that's preventing the FDA from declaring truly how harmful sugar Sodas are for the body. 

I'm prob gonna die of diabetes but hey at least I'll go with a smile. (As I crack open another can of Pepsi while typing this :D)

I did a low carb diet similar to what DU mentioned.

Biggest problem was the headaches so I took 2 spoons of sugar in my TEA in the mornings and that seemed to cure it.

If you live in the US, the soft drinks contain High Fructose Corn Syrup - that is the killer and deadly stuff...much much worse than sugar. Avoid at all costs.

natural is always best, but if (like me) you hate the smell of fish, you can just take 6 or 7 capsules and not worry about it.

I have heard some of the best foods are:

Garlic

حضرت محمد (ص) : سیر بخورید و با آن مداوا کنید زیرا که در آن شفای هفتاد درد است.

(For Farsi speakers. I need to write this quick so I will Insha Allah translate later)

Onion 

Proven to help against headache and toothache

Mutton

One of the favourite meats of the Propjet (saw). Full of good fat too.

Dates

Basically the best for gaining energy. Why else would we eat them with iftar?

Mushroom is also mentioned in the Sunnah.

I have started hard-core gyming and personal trainer has literally been massacring me but despite that I still can't live with one choco bar a day. I don't know how some of ya'll do it!!!

in stages. extremes are always a bad idea. 

for example I love biscuits with my tea, those paki plain ones that come in the "assortment" bag. I always drink a cup of tea when I eat after work at home. I used to eat those biscuits and cake rusks like they were crack. 

instead of immediately going cold turkey, I gradually ate less and less, until right now I only eat them on a weekend day. maybe do something similar for chocolate? 

you could potentially swap your chocolate with something else, like a banana or something maybe. or only eat them every other day

Also a hadith where one of the Imams (as) I think It was Musa ibn Ja'faar al Khadim(as) (I could be wrong) said If one eats an apple and takes a cold bath everyday he will never get sick again in his whole life.

    • Bismehe Ta3ala, Assalam Alikum  I would never celebrate the slaughter of a nation.  Curse be upon CC. Just like we hate it when people celebrate on Ashura, we should feel the same way towards this mass murdering day.  But every year I mention the same thing, just a reminder for the passerby. M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah 
    • Thanks the most relevant answer to the question i have got is given below:  Mirza Jawad Tabrizi سؤال: ألا يكره للمصلي لبس السواد؟ كيف نجمع بين هذا الحكم الشرعي وبين استحباب لبس السواد عزاءا على الحسين عليه السلام؟ جواب: لم يثبت كراهية لبس السواد لا في الصلاة ولا في غيرها، نعم ورد في بعض الروايات ما يستفاد منها كراهية لبس السواد، ولكنها ضعيفة السند، ومع الإغماض عن ضعفها، فالكراهة في الصلاة بمعنى أقل ثوابا، ولبس السواد في عزاء الحسين والأئمة عليهم السلام لأجل إظهار الحزن وإقامة شعائر المذهب مستحب نفسي، وثوابه أكثر من نقص الثواب في الصلاة، والله العالم. Question: Isn’t wearing black while praying Makruh? On the other hand, donning black is commendable during the mourning period for Imam Hussein (AS). What is the justification for the contradiction between these two points? Answer: The undesirability of wearing black clothes in the state of praying or in other situations is not proven as an absolute fact. It is only derived from a number of narratives the chains of transmission of which are unreliable and weak. Regardless of their unreliability, wearing black clothes while praying will lessen its spiritual reward. But putting on black clothes in grief for Imam Hussein (AS) is a religious rite and commendable. Al-‘Amili; al-Intisar, vol. 9, p. 247; publication, Dar al-Sirat, Beirut, Lebanon, the first edition, 1422. Following the analysis of jurists’ ideas it was finally revealed that wearing black in prayers is Makruh. Another question which may come into the readers’ minds is whether praying in black clothes for black-clad mourners during the month of Muharram or ceremonies held for the martyrdoms of the Aimma is Makruh as well. The question has been answered by Haj Aqa Mirza Jawad Tabrizi. سؤال: ما حكم اللباس الأسود في الصلاة أيام وفيات الأئمة عليهم السلام، هل هو مكروه ؟ جواب : إذا كان اللبس بداع إظهار الحزن وتعظيم الشعائر فليس بمكروه، والله العالم. It is not Makruh if the motivation behind the clothing is the expression of grief. Al-‘Amili; al-Intisar, vol. 9, p. 247; publication: Dar al-Sirat, Beirut, Lebanon, the first edition, 1422. The considerable point in jurists’ decrees is bad this kind the prohibition implies that wearing black while praying will only diminish its spiritual rewards. In other words, donning black while praying does not nullify the prayer. It only decreases its rewards. So, wearing garments in other colors is recommended for the state of praying. http://www.valiasr-aj.com/english/mobile_shownews.php?idnews=251
    • ^^^ A7SANTI sister, Mash'Allah.  God bless you. Allhoma sali 3la Mohammad wa Ahli Mohammad 
    • Are you asking if they are makrooh to wear in Muharram? No they are not.  They are only makrooh to wear in days that are not mourning days. Sayyed Al-Sistani said it is makrooh to wear black in a normal day.
    • My intention is clear as given in my questions. Wasalam
