I don't consider myself on a diet. I am trying to change my lifestyle. I find it troubling that this time of year everyone is trying to diet. I believe that diets to lose weight do not work. Yes, you can lose weight on them but once you stop dieting then 90% if not more people gain back the weight they lost if not more. I was talking to my grandmother about her new diet. It consisted of eating only certain things for only 17 days then move on. The once you lose the weight you want to, the book she id getting this diet from was like it is okay to eat healthy during the week and then splurge on weekends. This sounds like a bad idea. While it is okay to splurge once in a while if you plan on splurging on the weekends it will counteract the healthy eating during the week. Plus she hasn't really talked about adding much exercise. I am curious to read the book so that I can laugh at it. I wanted to try and tell her about sparkpeople but she is so not good with computers and her cellphone that I am not sure she would understand completely about how to track.
