I want to thank you for making this site so affordable. With 4 children, our expenses are great and we don’t make much money. This site is so great and I’m so happy you’re not in the business just to make money.

Found my motivation going this week and reread the “Time to refocus” reasons I gave and I was back on track! This would normally be where I would have given up dieting for a couple weeks but now I’m still on track. Thanks Anne.

Thanks for all your support and encouragement. I feel like I’ve learned in one month a lifetime’s worth of information about having a positive attitude about eating.

Hello, just wanted to let you know how incredibly wise you are. I was hesitating to join your program until after New Year’s as I have a Christmas Eve dinner to attend and a party New Year’s. You answered everything by just simply stating that a little indulging two days isn’t going to matter in the scheme of things, it will only take me a little longer to lose the 10 lbs I have struggled with for a year. Thank you for advice I will never forget. I’ve already gotten my money’s worth…

… thank you for being so accessible, providing input and feedback so readily! This forum has been a Godsend for me!

… Anne, you deserve all this credit and more! You have believed in me like no one else and most importantly, you showed me how to believe in myself! You truly are a great lady Anne, even with your busy schedule of clients that you see in your office each week, you still take the time to be here for us whenever we need you. I think of you as more than my nutritionist and weight-loss coach, you are a real friend!

I’m starting to take control of my life… thank you Anne for your clear, no-holds-barred, honest, in-your-face help….It just may have saved my life….really!

This discussion forum has really opened my eyes. To be able to talk to so many other women who are my size (300 pounds) and losing weight, and who are SO supportive… it’s such a positive experience. Bless you Anne.

Many will be able to relate to your story. I for one tried LA Weight Loss years ago, but unlike you I actually bought some of the products – talk about stupid! But, like you I learned my lesson – I stopped because I realized like Jenny Craig and so many others, theirs was a short term solution that was not teaching me how to live in the ‘real’ world. I wanted to tools to manage my weight and Anne Collins gives you that.

I just wanted to let you know, I really love this forum! It’s helped me realize that tomorrow really is another day..even later in the day is a different part of the day. So if i’m bad this morning that doesn’t mean it’s ok to be bad tonight! I think a big part of my previous problems was that when i ate something bad i just said oh wel i’ll start again tomorrow and badly the rest of the day….not anymore!!!

I lowered my cholesterol from 250 to 195 by exercise and eating better (thanks to our team), Best wishes to everyone, your support is heartwarming!

Wow! I just inspired myself. That’s why I love this site – it truly makes you stop and think. I’ve had many lightbulb moments here!

For years I’ve gone up and down weight but there has been one weight (16 pounds above my target) I’ve never managed to get below and everytime I got near it I’d panic thinking I just can’t get below that, leave the diet go and head back up again. I broke that barrier 1 month ago for the first time in years … thanks Anne.

I just wanted to tell you I enjoy the recipes and diet suggestions I found here and I am losing weight. It is easier every day. less like dieting and more like “how I always eat”. I’ve also found that when I fall into my “old eating habits” of too much sugar, my joints and my arthritis seem to flair up. I’ve lost 21 pounds so far, and seem to have settled into a pattern of a two pound loss per week. I’ve very pleased with this, and your tips on motivation made a big difference. Once I focused on why I wanted to loose weight I found the process much simpler. Thanks for your advice and information.

My sister has had raves about this and said it is easy to follow if you follow the rules and she has had great success with it. That is the road I am going to travel on now too!

For so long I used shame to motivate myself. That’s why I check out Anne’s motivation tips at least once a day. They are not “shame-based”! They are great touch-stones to make me feel/think that I really can loose this weight and feel good about myself through the whole process.

I’ve only just joined but am already impressed, above all by the ATTITUDE everyone has, including Anne, who seems to live in the real world, unlike many other diet promoters, and is very supportive indeed.

Why Members Love it!

Hello,
…If Oprah had any sense, she’d devote a whole show to your program and what you have achieved for so many people… My husband joins me in thanking you for all your help…
Jerry W. (Ohio) (Lost 72 Pounds)

I found Anne Collins through my doctor! We had a long discussion one day about my weight and how many diets I had tried etc. He told me to go on-line and find Anne’s site. He was doing research at the time on on-line diets (e-diets etc) and said that Anne Collins was the only one that was always nutritionally sound and would make sure the weight would come off and stay off! The best advice I was ever given!

What Other Members Say About The Program

Here are just a few of the thousands of email messages I’ve received from Members of my weight loss diet program. They describe REAL weight loss experiences! As well as weight reduction, they cover weight-loss motivation, health and the feel-good factor from following a healthy balanced diet.

Hello,
“I’m writing to thank you for your wonderful weight loss program and your unbelievably caring support… I’ve lost 62 pounds but much more important – I’ve regained all my confidence…..You have literally changed my life… As I write this, my eyes are filling up with tears. How can I thank you?…” Louise B.

Hi,
Just wanted to say – from the bottom of my heart – your diet is simply awesome… Great value, unbelievable support… no other Internet diet program I’ve ever tried comes close… you are so unbelievably REAL!!!
Pat

HI,
A quick update. Saw my doctor first thing this morning. Scales showed a loss of 12 pounds for the month. A total of 92 pounds in 10 months. Next month I’m going to break the 100 barrier, and after that I just need to lose 19 pounds to join the 199 club! My heart is already jumping at the thought.
Mia (Texas)

Hello:
Today, I reached my long term goal of losing 30 pounds!!! I’m so excited and so thrilled. Tomorrow is my 17th wedding anniversary. My husband, is taking me out to dinner to our favorite inn… (first time I’m eating out since beginning my diet — I already checked out your eating out pages and will be very careful). Anyway, I had a black semi-formal dress in my closet that I haven’t been able to wear. In fact, the tags are still on the dress. Well, today is fits — beautifully. I’m going to wear it tomorrow. Thanks, Anne, for your lessons on healthful eating, and most of all, your encouragement. I intend to stay on the diet as I hope to lose a little more weight, but also because the diet has really become a new way of eating, a habit for everyday life. God bless you!
Cheryl (New Jersey)

Anne, … my doctor told me yesterday that he didn`t think I needed my zestril [high blood pressure med] He has lowered my thyroid med.to about half of what it was. And I`ve been off prednisone now since Aug. ALL THANKS TO YOU. Thanks so much Anne for all you’ve done.

Hi:
Just wanted you to know that I’ve continued to enjoy tremendous success with the weight loss program. When I first purchased your diet back in January of this year, I weighed 151.5 pounds (which was a bit much for my 5’4″ frame). I was very uncomfortable closing my size 12 pants and skirts and needed to either lose weight or start accepting the concept of wearing size 14. I arbitrarily set a goal of 125 pounds and to do it by my birthday on June 4th. By my birthday, I had dropped to 133 pounds and was astonished to realize that I really didn’t need to lose any more weight. I looked fabulous, that I was fitting into my old size 8s and 10s, the 10s were comfortably loose, the 8s a bit tight but certainly presentable. I’m now at 131 pounds; officially 20 pounds lighter than when I started. My cholesterol dropped 78 points, and my doctor is no longer threatening to make me start taking drugs to reduce it. I’m happily maintaining my current weight and having no trouble with that. I have no need to lose any more. I can now occasionally treat myself to fattier foods (like pizza or ice cream or a little extra butter on my bread) without worrying that I’ll never look good or be healthy again….Thanks again for having been there. It really helped.

More Comments on The Weight Loss Program
Hello,
Thank you for replying so quickly to the e-mail I sent you last week. I just thought I’d let you know that I weighed in this morning, having completed my first week, and I was delighted to find that I had lost 6 pounds!! I know I won’t continue to lose at that rate, but I’m thrilled because I found it so easy. I’ve been using the main meal recipes for 4, and serving my family the same meals (they just get an extra potato or a slightly larger portion) and my husband has not only noticed or commented on the healthier menus, but twice this week has asked me “when are you starting your diet?” You were right about feeling better after only a week on the diet – I’ve got so much more energy, so I am going to start taking myself off for a short walk each day and try and build up from there. Thank you again; it’s great knowing I can contact you for support whenever I feel I need it.
Jan (W.Virginia)

Hello,
I purchased your diet earlier this year. I am about 5 foot 9, and was weighing 182 pounds. My doctor had just told me that the constant pain in my low back was arthritis and that losing weight would be important to minimizing the effects of the disease over time. Last Friday I saw him for another purpose. He was stunned to look at my chart and see that I now weigh 150 pounds! He applauded my effort. Thank you for your diet. I never felt deprived, nor listless, and I’ve readopted healthier eating habits. I still have about 10 pounds to go, but I just had to say thank you for the help! By the way, my back is much better with a lighter load to carry…

Dear Hello
I signed up today and feel compelled to write to you after having read a number of your very fine weight loss motivational articles. They run contrary to the ‘good girl/bad girl’ stuff that I have been punishing myself with all these years. They are direct and powerful in their brevity, but they also communicate a sense of love and forgiveness. I know it may sound amazing, but I never realized until now the huge part that ‘attitude’ plays in the success or failure to lose weight.
Joan (Oregon)

Hello – You Are Wonderful!
My name is Michelle and I’m in the USA. I just started your weight loss program this week (first week of the rest of my life)! I haven’t run into any problems yet, but I’ve taken precautions (healthy snacks in my cubby at work!). I wanted to tell you that you have absolutely opened my eyes. I’ve done diet pills, fasting, Atkins, the different commercial diets, and nothing worked because I always felt deprived. When I found your diet, I almost passed it up, but I started to read everything you said and it made perfect sense. Then I became a member, and was almost in awe because I identified everything you said about that wicked cycle of feeling desperate, then dieting for a few weeks, then the hopelessness, the binge, and back to square one. I’ve always had a weight problem, when I was 12 I weighted in at 180 pounds. The thinnest I’ve ever been in my 26 years is 150 pounds, that was when I was 19 and had just stopped about 9 months of phentermine. Now, I’m about 240 pounds and 5ft 6in (was 260 pounds in 8/03), and haven’t been about to get past the 200 mark. But after reading I realized I’m the one who wants to lose 60 pounds in 4 months. I will not do that ever again. I’d rather lose 100 pounds in one year than 30 in a month to just regain it back and some. Your tips are fantastic! I’ve never read anything more truthful (the truth DOES hurt!); I feel enlightened! I will make sure to keep you posted on my progress; I’m so excited, more than I’ve ever been before because I know that this is it. I can do this. It feels good and healthy and I’m not starving!!
Michelle C

Hello!
I started your plan just over a week ago, weight last Tuesday was 236 pounds. This morning was a shock, my weight today is 210 pounds!!! This is a terrific flying start! So I shall raise my glass to you tonight! Cheers!
Judy (London)

Hello,
I am a 51 year old woman, 5 feet tall and I weigh 148 pounds… I read about 8 of your articles so far, and what really impressed me is the thread that runs through all of them: MENTAL work has to go on in order to succeed. You don’t pepper them with little food tips or tricks — the most important dieting GOES ON IN YOUR HEAD. So, as I begin to apply the principles of healthy eating one more time, I think I see that I need to get rid of a lot of anger as well as the excess weight. Anger that I have directed toward myself. And they just may be synonomous. Thanks, Hello. I really feel hopeful I can lose weight this time.
Meryl (Indiana)

Hi Hello,
Getting back to you on my question and your answer. I did as you suggested and started working out on the elliptical machine every day 30 minutes and altered weight training to working on upper and lower on alternative days, and now I’m getting good results. So far I have lost 9 pounds. Your diet guidelines have really helped. I am learning to change the whole way I eat…..and it has not been nearly as bad as I thought it would….especially for someone addicted to Ranch Dressing. Now I will continue to do my daily work outs and stay on your eating program until I lose the 30 pounds I desired, and then modify my quantity to maintain, without adding fats and sweets back to my diet. You know, I don’t even miss them any more…..and feeling 200 percent better!! More energy, better mood and outlook on life. Thanks for your help. I have never been an exercise person….but have fallen in love with it………at 62. Neat! Keep up the good work. Thanks again for your help!! I am telling my friends about your diet.
Jean (NY)

Hello,
Just a note to say how much I appreciate your advice. I’m soon to be 58 and at 5’4″ have managed to lose almost 20 pounds since last July when my doctor told me my triglycerides were over 780 and cholesterol was 280 also (sugar was up around that to). At that time I weighed in at 206 lbs (so now I’m 186). I’ve still got a long way to go figuring I’ll be happy around 150. I was hungry a lot in the beginning but now I eat more but just watching for low or no fat, no salt and low sugar food. I appreciate your no spam email and best of all your free support. I think you’re a real life saver (I know I’m a walking heart attack if I didn’t stop my old lifestyle) so thank you again.
Lana (Michigan)

Hello,
I wanted to email you last week but didn’t get a chance. I have lost 10 lbs. as a result of finding your plan and following it. I have been on this for almost 2 and a half months and I am sure if I hadn’t found it I would have gained another 10 or at least been the same weight. I am happy to have lost 10 (even tho most people who have dieted that long would have lost 20 lbs.)and I am thankful, so thankful to have found your plan and I am determined to continue on. I am happy with your plan because it allows me the flexibility that I am not depriving myself of bread and other things. Some “diets” I have heard of do not even allow a person to have fruit. I have made it through Thanksgiving and am looking forward to more success after the new year. I will let you know then. Happy Holidays and thank you so much!!!

Hello,
Thanks to you and your assistance I have been able to seriously reduce my blood pressure medicine and hope to soon be able to be off all of it. I met a young woman at the gym today that was getting started and I told her about your web site and book. I hope she will check it out. She said she would. She left before I had a chance to get her name. It surprises me, how the work out has been such a tremendous boost to me eating less. I do not feel deprived, I eat what I want…and I WANT to eat the right things. Thanks again for your help.
Sylvia (Texas)

Hello,
Just to tell you I had another successful week on the program…and another two pounds gone! That is a total of 6 pounds in 2 weeks. I am feeling much better and was able to fit back into my jeans yesterday. I feel like I am in a comfortable lifestyle and not on a diet at all. I am starting to walk at least 20 minutes 3 or 4 times a week…and what a lovely autumn we are having here. I am always full and never crave sweets or fats…all seems to be coming into a balance. I feel less stressed and more physically well. I am so grateful you were out there with your wise plan to help me and others because I would never have believed that I could eat so much rice, bread, beans and potatoes every day and lose weight as well as on a high protein diet that is sparing, feels depriving, and leads to eventually gaining all the weight back. Thanks again for all of your help! I am looking forward to all the foods I can eat this next week of my program and the resultant weight loss. Even if I do not lose weight next week, I am learning to be patient and follow the rhythm of my body for permanent weight loss in comfort this time!
Yvonne (Ohio)

Hello,
I am 49 years old, and was gaining weight, entering a menopause nightmare. I have always been able to eat anything I wanted, whenever I wanted. All of a sudden, my clothes felt tight and my belly looked like I was pregnant. I am 5’8″ tall and wore a size 12 forever. When I plumped up and couldnt wear my jeans anymore, I decided it was time to do something. Also, I was going on a hunting trip in October and couldnt fit in my beloved cammo pants, almost stuffing myself into them for a test. I took your diet (every page), read it word for word, and followed it exactly as you said. Within 3 weeks, I lost the inches it took to fit quite nicely in my jeans and easily into my cammo pants for that hunting trip. I was energized and felt healthier than I ever can remember. Also, I was never a fish eater, but gave seafood a chance. I now crave it! I love my salmon. tuna and whitefish. Best of all, I was never, ever hungry or felt deprived. Today, 🙁 for the first time, I ate french fries. I can tell you that I felt like I was walking though thick mud for the rest of the day…absolutely no energy. You have taught me a new way to cook for me and my family and I thank you! I keep my notebook on the kitchen counter and refer to it 3 times a day, and I have decided that this is the way I want to nourish myself. Kids like hot dogs, pizza and fried junk food but I have made the decision to feed them the healthy way you have taught me, with an occasional treat. I cant thank you enough! Much Love and admiration :-)…….

Hello,
I wrote you almost 2 weeks ago that I am happy with this eating plan you have and was losing weight but a loss of only a pound had shown up on the scales after 3 weeks. Well, after that I lost some more and am steadily progressing. The scales so far show over 5 pounds but I have definitely made this my lifestyle and can go into the holidays without fear. I have already been in some situations where people were snacking around me (and now it is Halloween) but I did fine because I have my Hello Collins diet to help me and have a different attitude this time from times past. Before I had to lose weight quick or I wasn’t losing. I am happy to have held on with patience–your story about Barbara, I believe it was, helped. I am fitting in clothes I had not worn in a long time and some not at all. I don’t care whether anyone else notices it or even cares but I am happy to be feeling better and better about myself, not just from the health standpoint. Thank you, and I will email again.
Sara (Conn)

Hello,
It has been a little over two weeks now, that I have been on your diet. Thank you Thank you Thank you. I have been able to eat what I want and have enjoyed it. I don’t feel at all like I am on a diet. I just wanted to tell you that I have lost 5 and a half pounds and I am almost to my first goal. I hope to make it to it by November 6. I really want to thank you for the time you take to personally write me back. Your advice on cafeteria eating was so helpful. Here at college I eat down there and just alter your plan a little. I always make sure to eat low-fat, or non-fat foods. Thanks again.
Jax (Georgia)

Dear Hello,
I have been on your diet now for approx 4 weeks and the weight is coming off at about 3-4 lbs a week. I was very doubtful about a diet because of being on anti-depressants as they make you gain weight rather a lot. I feel so much better for eating 3 meals a day and my blood sugar level must have levelled out, as I don’t get the highs and lows in the day.
Audrey (Wisconsin)

Hello,
Lemme tell ya… Hello Collins diet is the best thing I’ve ever done – i’ve already lost 14 lbs in 6 weeks and i’ve never felt better. THANKS Hello!!! You are the best!!
Digby (NY)

Hello,
…I feel like I’m looking pretty damned good right now, even though my utlimate goal is still 8 pounds away! I was very excited to find out when packing for this trip that I could fit back into some of my old size 8s (comfortable to a little tight) and size 10s (pleasantly loose, not quite falling off me). I’m also thrilled that when it’s “that time of the month” and I’m at my most bloated — I can still fit into clothes that make me look good. Now that I’m feeling more comfortable with my lack of bulk, I’m more inclined to exercise. The dogs are getting longer walks, and the increased stamina is helping me with my golf game!

Dear Hello,
My wife and I are both on your diet and it is an excellent way to eat a more heathy way. It is not that difficult once you follow your rules. So far (it’s only been 4 weeks) I’ve lost 16 pounds and she’s lost 15 pounds – so it’s neck and neck! Thanks for the great support.
Tom (Missouri)

Hello,
I must say I really enjoy the diet, and although my busy and somewhat hurried life style interfers somewhat, I managed to lose two pounds the first week. You may find it odd that I am so pleased with two pounds, but considering I had to eat out and entertain three times, and I have a husband who doesn’t believe in “dieting”, I am quite proud of myself. I found the new “life style” changes pleasing and didn’t miss all the high fat items. One very positive thing I found…I had no desire to snack between meals. Must go but I am very positive for the up coming week. Hopefully, the two twelve hour shifts (nights) I have to work this week will not pose to difficult a problem.
Leila (New Jersey)

Hello,
I have been on your diet for 11 weeks. I am so thrilled with my success. I have lost 25 pounds. I only want to loose another 5 pounds and then maintain my goal weight. The maintaining has been my problem in the past. But with your support I’m confident I can do it.
Mary-Jo (Illinois)

Hiya Hello,
I found your diet web page in May this year – I think I’ve been looking for it for the last 10 years!!. I’m 30, 5’7″ and was nearly 200 pounds. I read everything and then started it, I found it really easy and have lost 22 pounds so far, with a holiday in between as well. I am so happy, I haven’t been this weight since about 1994/5. So, I’m halfway to my goal and I’m going to do it, your case histories and blunt advice have been great, just what I needed. I have to admit I used to be addicted to the weighing scales and had mood swings depending on what they said. I’m now fully cured and weigh once a week – haha.
Billi (Tennessee)

Hello,
…when I first started on your weight loss program my husband was very skeptical for the usual reasons, I would try a diet and then get really disappointed when it didn’t work etc etc – you know the story. Since he has seen how much happier I am, and also how successful it has been he has been really supportive. He now counts my wine intake and advises on best options if we go out to eat – it’s quite funny. I’ll stop there, it’s just a quick email to say how great I feel, and to say thanks very much!! Thanks very much (again).
DM (California)

Dearest Hello,
Good day to you! I just wanted to thank you for giving me the best thing in my life, an understanding of good food management. I have been on your diet for a while, still have a few hiccups, but have lost 7kg so far, (43 to go), and quite a few inches over my body. The point of my letter is that yesterday I put on an outfit that I have never been able to get into, and went to town with it, and even managed to turn my husband’s head with pride! I felt like a million dollars. I am returning home to Africa in about 2 months and my family and friends do not know that I am doing this. I have never been good with my weight management but I know that my mother is going to be so proud of me, and I have YOU to thank for it! I have always been overweight, since I was very young, and for once in my life, I finally feel in control. THANK YOU!!!!!

Hello Hello:
Just a quick update for you. As of today, July 22, I am down 90 pounds to 180. I have not been this lean since I was 18 years old. I will be 51 in 9 days! A couple of ladies here at work are doing it also. I think one, Karen, contacted you and bought your program and is steadily working away on it… Cheers!

I’ve been very motivated by you and I’ve lost 20 lbs. I’m not obese I just added a few pounds over the last 10 years . But now I’m sure I can control my weight better than before since I found you. thanks again.
Katrina

Dear Hello,
My name is Ginny and I have been on your diet plan since June 15th and have achieved my goal of a 20 pounds weight loss. Hooray!! I feel great. I have gone down two dress sizes and have lost 4 inches from my hips and thighs. My seamstress is very busy right now. My entire family now looks at the fat grams on packages from the market. It’s quite funny, we have all changed the way we look at food. My husband lost 10 pounds just from my change in the way I cook. I am a pastor’s wife of a good size church and you wouldn’t believe how many ladies have asked me how I lost the weight. I have been able to pass on your website to many women. I hope they check in with you and start. It has really been worth it. Thank you for all the encouragement, advise and help along the way. Sincerely,
Ginny

Dear Hello,
I’ve been following your plan for 5 weeks or so, and I’m very pleased with the results. So far, I’ve lost 3kg, I could have probably lost more, but I’ve had a couple of weeks of going up and down… but, I’m generally very pleased. Thanks SO much for the support.
Chrissie

Hi Hello!
I have e-mailed you before Hello and am happy to report that… I have lost almost 40 pounds. I work out six days a week in a gym and I feel wonderful. Thank you for making the diet so easy for people like me who hate to diet.

Hello,
I wanted to let you know that I’ve used your diet for about 40 days and have lost 20 pounds. And it seemed easy. After the first week when I hit the scales, I was prepared to be disappointed. So to my surprise the scale said 4 pounds were gone. After the next week, some more were gone. This was fun. I wasn’t hungry, could pass on breakfast biscuits and eating lunch out. I recommend to anyone starting your diet to keep a daily log. I did from the start and was able to quickly identify my cheat zones and keep them in line. I haven’t given up any food and my husband and I still eat out at the same places, same meals. I just don’t eat as much and don’t feel guilty asking for a people bag. I also exercise regularily using a treadmill. Thanks again for creating a smart, sensible way of eating.
Nicole (New Jersey)

Hello!
I feel much better already with my change of eating habits. No diet for me… just a change .. using your ideas. Sounds better that way. Lots of fruits, veggies, etc. Thanks so much for being there. So far it’s been the best $20.00 I ever spent… and its only been a few days!
C. (NYC, NY)

Hello,
I purchased your diet plan last june, and up to date I have managed with ease to loose 52 pounds, the weight came off very easily (although steadily), AND I FEEL WONDERFUL. Thank you so much for your wonderful plan.
WJ (Kentucky)

Hello,
This is my monthly report of progress as promised. To date, I have lost from approximately 265 pounds down to 198 pounds. That is 67 pounds since February 1st. I have resumed running three to four miles almost every day and back to using weights for muscle tone again. S has lost 34 pounds during this time also. She is now lighter than she has been since her early 20s. Since she is approaching 56 years young and is weighing now about 12 pounds from her high school weight, she is very happy and excited. Her goal is the other 12 pounds to weigh 120 pounds on her 5 foot 2 frame. She is walking and running and using the weights also. I want to lose at least 8 more pounds and I will feel that I have met my goal to get there and then begin my lifetime of STAYING there in the 190 area. We are feeling great. About two years ago my doctor put me on high blood pressure medicine as my BP was about 136/96 or so. He recently took me off it as my BP had plunged to 116/68! S’s is 113/68 and our doctor is very happy indeed. We have now lost about a full person in weight (100 pounds) and our bed seems much bigger now that the third person has been lost out of it!!! :>) We will endeavor to continue our pursuit of a lifetime of keeping fit. We both have made that firm decision that we want to get in shape and stay in shape as much as our health allows us the remainder of our LONG lives together. Our weight loss has apparently inspired several others that we commute to each day to work. Some have started diets, come to us to ask what we are doing, how can they do it, etc. I have endeavored to watch my fat intake very much. I think the huge reduction in fat intake has assisted me the most in my loss. I am eating plenty of fresh fish, chicken without the skin, veggies, fruits, yogurts, melons, breads, potatoes, and rice. I have not had a hamburger, french fry, slice of pizza, bowl of ice cream, candy bar, or coke since our diets started. Frankly, I have not missed them that much. We both know that after we get to where we want to be, we can on the occasion have one of those, but in moderation. I told S a burger would probably be a chicken sandwich instead and ice cream would be a purchased one at a store in small quantities instead of a whole gallon in a bucket in the frig. Hope this report cheers your day, it certainly has ours.Regards,
B & S (Mid West)

Dear Hello,
My wife and I chose your plan 17 weeks ago as the diet that we felt most closely compared to the way our doctor advised us to diet. My wife’s goal is to lose 80 lbs. and mine is to lose 50 lbs…. I am happy to report very pleasing progress and that we are very happy with the results and the way we are feeling. My wife has lost 23 pounds and I have lost 27.5. We have found the diet easy to follow and it actually contains many foods that we really like. Two other very positive changes we have found are the habits of always eating breakfast and always sitting down at a table to eat as a family. These practices have provided us benefits far beyond just losing weight.
G and D (Alabama)

Hello,
It is 14 weeks since I began your diet, and I’ve lost 25 pounds. My goal was 30 pounds so I only have 5 pounds more to go. My girls keep asking me “What’s the first thing you are going to have when you meet your goal and go off your diet?” Well, I’m not going “off my diet.” I don’t have a diet. What I have is a new way of eating — a new, healthier habit and attitude regarding food. Now that I’m in the “home stretch,” I’ve been thinking about setting a new goal. I began at 165 pounds, I’m now at 140. My goal was 135 pounds, but I’m thinking about setting a new goal of 130. Gosh, I can hardly believe it (and just in time for summer!). I’ve also lost 3 to 3 1/2 inches off each of my measurements. Just wanted to keep you informed of my progress and especially to take this opportunity to again thank you for your encouragement. Talk to you soon.
B.

Hi Hello,
Just a quick update on my progress so far with your diet. It has now been 11 weeks and I have shed 20 pounds. The realization of just how much weight this is came when I grabbed two 10 pound bags of potatoes and jumped on the scales. Wow! I was carrying that much extra baggage?
Jack (New Jersey)

Hello,
I joined your diet plan about two weeks ago. I can’t believe I get to eat so much and lose weight! I’ve lost 5 pounds!!
Louise

Hello,
I just wanted to tell you that I started your diet on Monday morning, (and I put my husband on it too). I have never felt so good while dieting before. I know it has only been three days, but I really feel this is one I can stick to forever. It’s not even a diet really, it’s just changing bad eating habits.
Carmel

Hello,
I’ve lost 40 lbs in four months. This diet is wonderful…I have never stuck to one for this length of time!
Bobby

Hello Hello,
I’ve been following your diet and tips for almost 2 months and it’s been really great!!! I’m feeling better everyday, and the best part is I’ve been losing weight without even noticing!! What’s best is the part about surviving eating out… That really helped me a lot, especially since I travel frequently. I’m now convinced that the only way to make it is to change my eating habits… THANKS!!!
Helen

Annie,
Thank you for such a great diet. When you read it and practice it, it’s really common sense!
Elizabeth

Hello,
Just wanted to let you know how wonderful your weight loss plan is. Thanks so much for helping me start a new life as a healthier person!!!

Hi Hello,
I’ve only been on the vegetarian diet for one week but am very pleased so far. I love that you have a 14 day plan so I can just stick to that and get started right away while I am still reading and learning all the rules. I’m eating a greater variety of foods than I was before and I love it. Planning meals is always I challenge… I love that you’ve done that for me.
Amanda

Hi Hello,
Thank you for the great presentation. I’m a busy mom, and some of our poor eating habits and snack choices have crept up on us in the past few years. I was looking for someone who had put together a healthy diet plan that would work for the family and create healthy eating habits. Looks like you’ve saved me a lot of time and trouble!
Susan

Hi, Hello,
I just wanted to let you know how absolutely fantastic I think your plan is. I have been on it for one week and have lost about 4 pounds. More importantly, I feel wonderful. I am NEVER hungry and already notice a difference in my energy levels. I know this is IT. And because this isn’t really a “diet,” I WILL reach my goal, it’s just a matter of time. So, thank you for sharing this plan with the world and I will keep you posted on my progress in the near future.
Jackie (Florida)

Dear Hello,
I do not suppose you have the time to read all your mails personnally but I’d like you know your site and diet are the best on the net!
JeHellotte (Canada)

Hello,
I would like to thank you for your wonderful diet! It has given me a whole new outlook on “dieting”. Your tips are helpful, practical and entertaining! With your help, I know I’m going to make it this time! THANK YOU!!!
KC (Texas)

Hi, Hello,
Just wanted to send my first update. After 3 wks following your sensible guidelines, My weight went down from 202 lbs. to 194 lbs. and I feel much better already! Calories averaging about 1400 per day. I also do two days of weight/resistance training for 40-min. sessions and 3 days of step aerobics or power walking for 50-min. sessions, plus I dance whenever I can! I have cut out alcohol completely; other than that I just balance things out nutritionally, keeping track of everything I eat or drink. I think I can do this. I just wanted to share this good news with you. Best regards,

Hi there!
I have been on the Hello Collins diet for just over a month and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!! I totally don’t feel like I am on a diet, I am always in a good mood and I have noticed that my pants are fitting a little big now. As you can tell I am very pleased with the results and have vowed to keep at it and follow all of the good advice from your diet web. Thank you again for your amazing, life changing, diet.
TS (NY)

Dear Ann,
I am really enjoying your diet plan it’s the greatest thing I have ever found. I am trying to take it really slow, so I can change my eating habits for life. I have already lost 10lbs and feel great. I don’t feel like I am really even dieting.
Jill (Kansas)

Dear Hello:
It has been about two months…just under that I have been following your program now. I am so amazed to say that it is working! I must admit, it is slow, but definitely steady.It is so amazing because it made me realize what a horrible eater I was and how I was doing so many things wrong. I have had definite bad days and slip ups, which have delayed my progress a little, but the slip up advice you had on your program stayed in the back of my mind and I would just get back on track as fast as I could. In the past my “diet” would consist of a sleeve of crackers, and I am not kidding or exaggerating. Now I incorporate lots of good whole grains, lean meat, fruits and vegatables, I eat every hour or 2 hours and I feel so much better. I have not really been exercising though, and I know that would help me speed things up a little. I have about 11 lbs to go…hopeful by summer I will get there with this plan. I don’t really have questions this time around, I just want to say thank you for your site and thank you for being there to help educate people like me on proper nutrition…. I wish you could help me find a man too!!!!(Just kidding)
J. (Maryland)

Dear Hello,
Just to let you know diet is still going well… Once I have reached my goal weight I intend to use your plan combined with a healthy eating plan for life. Only wish I could give up the smoking, but one thing at a time.Once again thank you for your information on your diet site well worth the money.
Chris (North Carolina)

Hello Hello!
I just wanted to let you know that I’ve been able to follow the 14-day vegetarian plan for 10 days so far, and I have still lost 5 pounds (from 161 to 156) since starting this, so I am hopeful that I will be able to get past the last few pounds to my goal weight of 147 (after starting at 204) The plHellod menus make it much easier for me to control portion size. I’ve enjoyed the recipes – very easy to prepare and generally quite satistfying.

Hi,
So far I’m into the diet by 4 weeks. I’ve lost a total of 8 pounds which I am really pleased about. I have also gone down a dress size and I’ve had to go and buy new trousers today as my others are falling down!! People have remarked that I have lost “loads”, which has made me feel good. I am really enjoying the diet and am eating a lot more healthily than I ever did before. I know that eventually I will achieve the figure I’m after so I have no intention of stopping.
KM (London)

Hello,
I have lost 12 pounds on your diet so far. I am so pleased with my success and love your diet. This is the only diet that I have had success with in several years. Thank you so much for your support and help!
S. (California)

Hello,
I emailed you last week about wanting to eat when I feel stressed and today I had something come up at work which was very stressful. The amazing thing was that I stopped myself from heading for food. Is there any scientific formulas in this diet that affect my saiety and blood sugars from dipping too low? I’m amazed at how much I can eat on this program and still lose weight. One of my absolute favorite things to eat is birthday cake with that sweet sickening frosting. We had some at our preschool today and I found it was no problem to resist….and today of all days when the stress level was high, I would have usually plunged in. Thanks for listening!
R (Iowa)

Hello,
Just a note to thank you for your diet. I don’t have any questions; I just thought you might like to hear another success story. I believed I could not lose weight, being 61 years old and not active at all. And except for all that evening snacking, I thought I ate pretty well. I had decided to try a healthy, smart diet and was thrilled to find yours. Exactly what I wanted and needed. Like many others, I had tried and failed over and over. But this is the perfect diet, I think. Normal, everyday food, balanced, healthy. There have been some setbacks, of course. A time last fall when life was too hectic and stressful. I stopped for a month and a half. And then later, my friend, a lively 75, got married in December. I spent a lot of time with her travelling, shopping, looking for the room for that special first night, etc. I gained 3 pounds. And lost it. I was 177 pounds when I started. I am now 155. I hope to lose a bit more. Ten pounds or so. And I am sure I can do it. I am looking forward to the summer clothes coming into the stores and a gigantic shopping spree. I have become more active. Your diet was extremely encouraging, and taught me how to eat. I am looking and feeling so much better. Healthwise I know I will reap the benefits. Thank you so much.
DD (Canada)

Hello,
I’ve lost 13 lbs!!!!! I haven’t weighed this little since before my daughter was born. It has given me so much confidence and I’m sure I can reach my goal weight of 105lbs. (I now weigh 113lbs) I’m really enjoying doing all the cooking as well as it means we’re eating much more adventurously than normal. Sunday dinner was an eye opener – my husband remarked that his potatoes weren’t as “soggy” as usual and the kids ate theirs – just shows you doesn’t it?! Favourite recipe so far was the goulash. Also I’m impressed with the desserts. I’m over the moon and really grateful to you and your amazing diet.

Hello,
Your diet is great! Safe, simple. Sensible and successful.
LM. (Washington DC)

Hello,
I am so excited because I’ve been on your diet plan now for three weeks and I’ve lost 6 pounds! I’m so excited and it just keeps me on the trail to keep going. My family was down for a vacation last week and I went out to dinner with them and I admit it, I splurged, but I stayed on track the whole day, splurged at dinner, and went right back to healthy eating the next morning. Normally I would’ve gotten really down on myself, but reading your material helps me to be good to myself and if I stray from the plan, it’s going to be okay. I’ve got my eye on the prize – a healthy me! So thank you again!
Judy (Florida)

Hi,
I don’t know if this email will be read by Hello Collins or not but I wanted to send my thanks for your wonderful suggestions. I have lost 13 pounds since November (I have gone from 138 pounds to 125 pounds!) and my husband has lost 13 pounds since December. We are eating much healthier now and our children are getting healthier snacks now. We have been able to do this without really being super strict. We put our own twist on the diet to make it suitable to our family. We take the weekends off, that way we don’t feel deprived and feel free to eat some junk without feeling guilty, We don’t go hog wild on the weekends either. We actually crave the healthier things over the junk food. My husband says that I have “ruined” his taste buds! Also, for me, counting my calories has been a good thing. I can actually see how much more I can eat just by making healthier choices. Its a real incentive for me to see how many more calories I can use after each meal – and usually its alot! I have tried diets on and off just to lose a couple of pounds and have never been able to last a day on them because I felt starved. I have lost more than I originally set out to and I am not starved with the Hello Collins Diet. We have been able to lose weight without exercise. Now my husband and I have agreed to work out together when our boys go to bed. This diet is a great incentive to live healthier! Thanks so much!
Lisa (New Jersey)

Hello,
I just thought I would drop you an e-mail and let you know about my progress. I started your plan as of five weeks ago and it has been working great. I lost 7 pounds the first week, 4 pounds the second, 2 pounds the third, 3 pounds the fourth, and 2 pounds this week for a total of 18 pounds. I started at 207 pounds and am down to 189 pounds. I still want to lose 9 pounds. I haven’t been able to follow your plan exactly because with work I have to go out to eat four or five times a week. But watching what I eat and based on the suggestions you have provided in your diet about eating out I have been able to lose the weight. Thanks.
PF. (Canada)

Hello,
I just wanted to let you know that I love your website. I have been following the diet for a couple of weeks now and am really begining to feel a difference in myself. Thanks again for your time and website! I love it!

Hello,
Not a question but a comment. After trying “them all” I have lost 6 pounds in 8 days. I was overwhelmed when I got on the scale – at Lifetime Fitness in Woodbury Minnesota – and saw the results. Thanks for giving me a new life.
BB (Minnesota)

Hello,
I started your diet in Nov, Hello and I have lost 22 pounds to date. Your diet is so easy. I cook for all the family with your recipes. My goal is to lose at least 20 pounds more. I am planning a trip back home for August and this is certainly an incentive. Thanks again.
Hello (Pennsylvania)

Hi.
I started your diet 2 months ago and I have lost 20 pounds. I find it so easy. Thank you so much for this plan. I will let you know how I do.
Angie (Georgia)

Hi,
I started on the vegetarian diet about 20 days back, was doing great – lost about 5 pounds in the first 15 days. I think it is one of the most sound and practical diets I have ever tried :), and the Diet tips are excellent motivation stuff…
Cin (NY)

HI,
Firstly, thanks for creating such a practical and interesting diet. I started it in Autumn last year…lost 12 lbs then let my birthday and Christmas have their wicked way with me! Anyway, I am back on the wagon now and hope to stick at it.
Melina (Conn)

Hello,
Finished with week 1 of the veggie diet and all is well! I am very excited! All the other vegetarian plans have been rather difficult to follow…too many ingredients and too much TIME involved in preparation!! We had baked potatos with baked beans last night~~YUMMY The kids Loved it too! Thanks again for the GREAT diet! I have 3 young kids and the ingredients and ease of preparation make this plan a breeze to follow. I will update you on my progress.
Staci (Ohio)

Hi:
FIRST: This program seems like it is amazing…it sounds SANE! I just joined your program last night from my aol address: I never thought you would reply to my question yourself… and that fast! Thank you so much…I feel like I truly have support. I never ate right in my life and only decided to once I visited your very informative sight. I am telling my sister and friends to visit…its amazing. Thank you again!
P (Pennsylvania)

Hello,
I commend you on your diet program – it really is the best diet out there because it focuses on changing your eating habits.
Julia (Georgia)

Hello,
I’ve been doing your diet plan for 7 weeks. I’ve lost 10 lbs so easily I can’t believe it. Thank you for the diet, I no longer have heartburn or feel sick to my stomach and I sleep so well at night it’s a pleasure to go to bed rather than a dreadful thing.
JoHello (Maryland)

Hello,
Just wanted to let you know that as of this morning, I’ve officially lost 12 pounds! I’m feeling great, my clothes are comfy and I know that I can reach my weight loss goal of 25 pounds – nearly half way there already! Thanks again for your guidance and support.
Charlene (California)

Hi,
I started your weight loss diet plan 10 weeks ago. I’ve lost 18 pounds in weight, but more important – I’M NOT HUNGRY! MAGIC!
Kerry (Wisconsin)

Hello,
your diet is a real pleasure. I’ve lost nearly 15 pounds over the past 8 weeks, but the main thing is I’m beginning to feel as though I can fix my weight problem for good. Boy! When I think of all the money I’ve wasted on silly diets…
Ruth (Montana)

Hello!
I followed your advice about overcoming my plateau and last week I lost another 2 pounds! Yippee! This makes 23 pounds in 11 weeks!… Thanks so much for your help, Hello. Being able to email you for advice is SUCH a comfort.
Pat (NY)

Hello,
I feel renewed just starting on the healthy foods you recommend. I had been struggling with a low-carbohydrate diet since I lost a lot of weight on it four years ago. It’s nice to be eating balanced meals with no guilt again.
Lisa (Kentucky)

Hi,
Just a little up date, I have been on your diet for 2 weeks now and I have lost 8lbs Yahoo! I was one of your “I can’t do it” people because I was always about 125-130 pounds until I had my two girls, then my weight just went up and up. I got into a rutt of thinking that as a Mom I was going to be fat. I hope to get back to my 125 pound weight but before I started your diet I wanted that overnight, now I know I CAN DO IT but that it will take time and effort. What can I say? THANKS Hello.
Vicki (Washington)

Hello,
…what I’m doing is not a diet, it’s a change in my entire eating habits for life.
SuzHello (South Carolina)

Hello,
I am now starting on my third week of your plan. So far I have lost 4 pounds and my husband has lost 7 (only 26 more to go!).I can’t believe how great I feel from just eating the right foods…I have been using the recipes in your plan and have been pleasantly surprised at how great every one of them have been (you always think of low fat food as being tasteless – but I have found just the opposite with your recipes!) Even my kids have liked every thing I have made! Once again I am so glad I stumbled upon your web site I am hoping that you continue to make a huge change in my life!!!
CG (Oaklahoma)

Hello,
… I am a doctor and bought your diet plan about a week ago and have been religiously sticking to it. I was 12 stone 10 and have now come down to 12 stone 5 – in about a week! Cutting out all the sweets etc was tough, but it made me realise just how much of that stuff I was munching on a day to day basis. I haven’t done any more exercise than normal but already I feel better – presumably because I don’t feel “full” all the time. Thanks again – I just hope I can get my weight down to about 147 pounds (apparently my ideal weight). By the way – I am a man!
