Hi Cancersweet, I think you're going to find that there is no one secret and that we all have found what works best for us. I did best when I tracked my food and drank water like I should (I've yet to make it to 8 glasses a day - even on the says I exercise). Also, check out the secrets of success under the community tab. Other sparkers have posted all sorts of suggestions of what helped them.
The important thing is to never give up - you'll have to keep trying until you find that combination that works best for you and that you can make a lifestyle.
Psalms 34:7 - Delight your self in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Before you ask God for Anything, remember to first thank him for Everything
