Please google "raw food diet" for dogs. There is absolutely NO commercial, cooked, processed diet out there for dogs. Dogs are carnivores and thrive on raw meat and bones and whole prey only.

I've experimented with this a ton and I'm certain that steak provides better satiety than any other meat. This would lead to fewer calories eaten over the course of a day if you eat based on when your stomach growls rather than time of day etc.... (more)

I'd say that there's no one way and what you might at one point think is THE way for you is subject to change over time. Eat real foods, minimize stress, maximize play and movement, sleep well. Tinker as needed.

Yeah you'd think right? Yet alcohol seems to slow weight loss for most. I'd try to go without if you can. Life is short, however, and a little tequila every now and again can be a very good thing indeed.

EAT MORE FOOD! Unless you are like 54lbs, 1000 calories a day is going to make your body think it's starving and retain fat. Quit counting. Eat real food. Walk. Measure. Watch inches go down. Admire self in mirror. Wink at self. Enjoy. (more)

Your fear of carbs is unfounded, no one develops diabetes from eating natural carbs, some doctors even cure diabetes with high carb diets. If your trying to maintain weight your doing yourself a disservice by limiting carbs.
