Welcome to the team. The Simple Diet has been a great experience for me so far. I have been on just about every plan out there starting dieting back when I was 12. Now I am 40 and thanks to this plan I am at my lowest weight in 2 years. I am also about to move into a lower weight bracket. I have lost 42.6 pounds in 3 months and next week hope to be in Twotersville. Been a long time.
I can relate to becoming discouraged. You will love the book when you read it. Make sure to check out Dr A blog (click on the picture of the book here on the team it will take you to the website) Also if you are on FaceBook Dr A answers questions there and Nancy the dietitian is on Spark as well as Twitter.
If I can help in any way please just ask.

I haven't been on the diet long, but it works!! I'm so thrilled that it is so simple to do!! My absolute favorite thing is that I'm not hungry all the time like on other diets.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Also, while you're waiting for your book, browse through the forum and it will give you even more information that you will most likely find useful along the way.
I had been on a diet and lost a considerable amount, then had to have 2 surgeries and gained it all back, plus more! I know what you mean by "discouraged"!! Have no fear, the Simple Diet is here!
Running to the refrigerator is not considered exercise.
I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday!

Hi all! I was thrilled to find out there was a forum for "The Simple Diet." I read the article about it in the WD magazine. I will be purchasing the book soon, too. I had RNY gastric bypass back in 2005, and lost a great deal of weight, but have gained a lot back, too. I've been very discouraged about my weight gain, and have felt so out-of-control. I'm thinking this diet will be easy for me to follow!
