If you have ever dieted, is there a specific plan that has worked for you?

I'm pretty much of the belief that any of the more popular ones work as long as you follow it. But some are a bit easier, convenient than others. I've never been a fan of the Weight Watchers thinking, though, where you stay under a certain amount of points (points=calories) per day. It allows you to, for instance, eat high-calorie crap early in the day and then just eat less the rest of the day.

None of these work long term and many are dangerous to sustain for any length of time. Diets do not work they only continue the weight loss, gain more back cycle. The onky thing that works long term in a total lifestyle change. I suppose weight watchers comes closest to this.. but still.

I have to say portion control, exercise and limiting sugar consumption. This works best for me. I have have tried the others listed.

I suppose the bottom line is this:
Without sacrificing nutrition, just burn more calories than are taken in whether through consistent, varied exercise (the best way IMO), or through less food intake.

Fast metabolism is the only diet i have tried. Its a LOT of prep work but based on nutritious whole foods. Its pretty intereating.

Yes...that is true, however there is something else at work. Especially with men as they grow older. Their hormones and Testosterone levels start to decline causing the metabolism to decline.

Yes. This diet claims to speed it up because it has been slowed by our overall poor food choices. I think the aging component would not be included in that.
Still, Im not so sure the metabolism can be sped up. Maybe it can. But I like the fact that it is based on whole foods and that there is a scrict regimine.
I think the strictness is important for most people (myself included). If youre goal is to just "eat better" its too easy to focus only on what you do well, and unknowingly ignore the bad.

What happens when you slip from the "strict" diet? Or when your bodu can no longer sustain it?

Well, Im sure there would be some weight gain--depending on how much and long you slip for. But that would be the case in any diet really, I think. Right?

I mean. we get fat by eating the wrong foods (not accounting for age related things--unavoidable, and exercise--not as big as an impact calorie-wise). so if a diet directs us to healthy foods and any kind of eating guidelines, it only makes sense that there would be weight gain again.

I think that most diets are a lifestyle change. So its basically saying that if you fall back to the old lifestyle, youll see the old results. So that is sort of my expectation.

What I can say is that I no longer have any cravings for any kind of junk food, sugar, coffee, etc. If I slip back after losing 30 pounds or so, I'll take that (as long as I catch myself soon enough.

What do you mean by "when your bodu can no longer sustain it?" Are you referring to real low calorie counts and quantity of food? If so, I dont know the answer as the diet I am following that isnt a problem. I eat, literally, all day long. Only the foods changed, the amount of food has actually increased and I have not exercised (but still 14 lbs the first month) For anyone who wants to diet I definetly recommend checking it out (sorry if I sound like an advert :) It is a lot of work and if you are married or living with someone, it would be tough unless both are doing it--and gung ho about it. You cant do this one halfway, theres just too much prep.

I do know peolple that have tried various other diets with shakes as meal replacements and all that. Sounds miserable to me. That seems like a serious reduction in food quantity and I think in those cases maybe the peolpe hit a point where they just cant do it anymore and I wouldnt be surprised if there were a rebound from that.

The only thing that has worked for me is no carbs during the week. I ate what I wanted on the weekends. No sense of deprivation that way. It didn't cause me to lose a lot of weight, but I didn't have a lot to lose back then either...lol. these days? Life is short. Have dessert.
