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!

I am 5'2" and know I have a slow metabolism. I had testing done and I only burned 1000 cal in a day. I decided to do a test. I did my works outs with the help of an expert and after a month was only able to boost my metabolism by 100. I have since decided that cutting calories and only eating when I'm hungry is the way to go. If I went by this websites' recommendation, I would be consuming 300-600 cal above what I burn in a day. Translation.. I'd gain weight. I want to go down from 148 to 125 ( I weigh 148 because I ate what I wanted). Someone at the gym recommended this site, but if it doesn't take into consideration metabolism, what good is that? Right now, I live on decaf coffee, artificial sweetener with powdered creamer for breakfast, 3-4 crackers with 1/4 c skim milk when I'm hungry and a light dinner. As a result, I have lost almost 10 lbs. Unless someone can prove to me that the diet I have chosen isn't effective and another way is, I don't see any point to following what is promoted here. I am tired of trying to follow someone else's complicated and ineffective method for losing weight.
