They do not promote any special diets here, it is all about a healthy lifestyle. Something you can live with the rest of your life. Basicly, count your calories, exercise, & burn more calories than you take in. SP has all the tools to do so, articles on the latest health facts, trends, etc. Also, free videos, recipes, and online support. Even a one on one sparkcoach program. The support and friendship on this site is bar none the best around. If you post a page and share what you have gone through with your blogs, and join teams, make friends-it will help you on your journey- I have done it for 2 years and it works. Just look around and decide for yourself. Good luck!
