My two picks are:

Weight Watchers the old program where you count food groups. Three meals a day and 1ish planned snack.

fruits - 2-3 (50 calories) so 1c strawberries, 1/2c peaches, 1/4c pineapple, 2T raisins
milk - 2 (90 calories) 1-2% 8 oz glass of milk, 1/2 cup yogurt, 1/2 cup sugar free pudding (max 1 a day)
fat - 3 (40 calories) olive oil, PB, 1 tsp butter
bread - 2-3 (80 calories) to include starchy veggies: potatoes, rice, pasta, peas, corn
Do NOT have more than 2 servings at once
veggies - non-starchy MINIMUM of 3 ... can eat all you want after that (30 calories)
protein - 6-8 (70 calories) 1oz equals 1 serving

water - 64oz minimum
optional:  50 calories a day and twice weekly an additional 100 for a total of 550 a week. Try NOT to eat total all at once.

Peanut butter - 1T equals 1 protein AND 1/2 a fat. Try non-sugar brands like Smuckers, Laura's

Hmmm ... back up plan??? Focus on lean protein, fruits and veggies with limited healthy fats ... nuts, avocado

Kabocha Squash - also called buttercup squash - one of my favourite squashes

Characteristics: The squat, green kabocha—the Japanese word for squash—has a nutty, earthy flavor with just a touch of sweetness. It's similar in shape and size to a buttercup squash

Kombucha is a pro-biotic drink made of fermented black tea using a SCOBY, a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast. I make kombucha and I love it, it is kind of like apple cider, it is tart and has a fizzy quality.

Kombucha pronounced (Combo cha) is a hard winter squash. I believe it is popular in Japan. To me it tastes somewhere between a pumpkin and a butternut squash. It's smaller than most pumpkins but about twice the size of an acorn squash.

My DD loves it and I to me it's meh as I prefer the other ones. If you like winter squash, give it a go.

Plan A: Ketogenic diet - low carb, high fat, moderate protein

Plan B: ADA, AHA recommended diets for diabetes, heart disease and/or Weight Watchers.


I've tried the Keto diet in the past and it worked really well for me. I hope it will work again this time, when I need it the most.

Hello again Di - we seem to be starting at the same time.

I've picked two diets that I've dabbled with before.

My first is Michael Mosely's Eight Week Blood Sugar Diet. Although aimed particularly at people with Diabetes, it's great for anyone who has trouble with sugar (me!).

It keeps you full. Very low cal, so quick start to weight loss.

My second is Weight Watchers. I lost three stone on it once (and gained it all back...). It's flexible with a lot of online support.

I pick the Sparkpeople heart healthy plan and for my second, ADA.

I need flexibility in the foods I eat. I do look at menus of the food plans to get ideas to what to eat.

My first meal plan I chose was a low carb plan ... today I switched to my second plan which added in complex carbs and a few more carbs.

Looking at my graph this evening on the app today I have 30% carbs which is 59 net carbs today, 25% protein and 45% fat. My calorie count was low so I will need to go through my meal plan book and make some adjustments there....

I weigh and measure food.
No food after supper.
Fruit eaten before noon.

I tried to find what I posted in the past, but couldn't find it and my connection is slow. So, no matter what I chose before this is what I am choosing this time:

1.) Dr. Greggor's Daily Dozen -- I have his app on my phone, so I'll be able to check off what i am eating and get instant feedback on what I need to eat.

2.) Track my food on Spark People -- I am synced with fitbit so this should be interesting

My first "diet" plan will be to eat 3 healthy meals and 2 snacks per day. I have a real problem with snacking after lunch since I work from home and the food is so accessible. After dinner when the kids are in bed is also a tough time, so I will really need to plan my snacks.

A few rules:
-No eating after 7 pm.
-2 snacks per day that's it!
-Don't give in to the "just one more it's only 50 calories" monster.

If this plan doesn't hold I will start planning my entire day by writing down my food.
I can't seem to track my food on-line via SP or other plans at some point I rebel, so I won't stress myself by doing it.

I've been raised vegetarian, so that isn't a struggle for me. I do have a weakness for sugar and crunchy items, so those are my triggers.

For a primary diet, I picked a diet that I have been able -for the most part- to follow for the past 2 years. I am a few lbs over goal weight, so I will track calories with SP and keep a 200-500 cal deficit on week days. On weekends I have less control over my day, so I'll strive for calorie intake to match the day's estimated calorie expenditure (no deficit). I will eat 98% home cooked, unprocessed, no-refined sugar added food: 3 meals and max. 2 snacks.

For a backup diet: I will not track calories, but still eat 98% home cooked, unprocessed, no-refined sugar added food: 3 meals and max. 2 snacks.

Nutritional intake is subject to review every week. I eat according to the five rules of the leptin diet which are as follows:

The Five Rules of the The Leptin Diet:
Rule 1: Never eat after dinner.
Rule 2: Eat three meals a day.
Rule 3: Do not eat large meals.
Rule 4: Eat a breakfast containing protein.
Rule 5: Reduce the amount of carbohydrates eaten.

I have learned in recent months that grains are not tolerated by my body. So, they have been removed from my diet. Otherwise, I eat to meet my nutritional targets which are as follows:

1200 - 1550 calories
30% carbs
40% fat
30% protein
25 g - 50 g fiber

The carb/fat/protein targets are a guide. For example, this weeks daily averages were as follows:

1357 calories
33% carbs
41% fat
28% protein
25 g fiber

... and there was no under or overeating for the week. I am also not rigid about the 3 meals a day. I sometimes eat 2 meals per day instead of 3. Even with 2 meals instead of 3, I do not snack and do not eat after dinner.

I have found that adequate meal spacing is more important to my health and well-being than the number of meals eaten per day. Without adequate time between meals, inflammation develops in my body. Generally, 5 - 6 hours pass between breakfast/lunch and lunch/dinner and 4 - 5 hours pass after dinner before retiring for the evening. So, 12 - 13 hours usually pass between dinner and breakfast. I am free of cravings and not troubled by hunger.

For those of you that may not know me. I have been in maintenance since June 2014 and have routinely tracked nutrition for nearly 3 years.

I only have 1 diet plan and it involves staying within the calorie range SP has set for me. I really struggle with tracking and I'm hoping this reboot with Beck will help me overcome this. I don't believe in eating any different foods. My meals are balanced with protein, vegetable, starchy carb. I use my daily fruit for my breakfast and lunch.

Besides struggling with tracking I am also challenged with eating 3 meals a day. I am more of a 2 meal person and at this time I haven't decided if I'm going to let missing lunch upset my progress as it as in the past because I felt like such a failure for not following all of the "rules".

One thing I had underlined in Beck's Day 2 was that treats should be planned for and included so we don't end up feeling deprived. This is something that I have failed to do in the past, but this time I'm going to try to do this and see if it helps me emotionally.

Diet Plan #1: In general, increase my fruits and veggies, decrease carbs, and limit the junk food.

As suggested by Judith Beck's book, Beck Diet for Life, I will try to eat 2 cups of fruit per day and no more than 200 calories of junk food.

Whenever I eat I will try to sit, eat slowly and enjoy , and will not eat after 7:00.p.m.

Diet Plan #2: 5:2 Diet

My diet is my food plan.
Eating 3 meaks and 3 snacks, reasonably healthy foods at set times, in prescribed amounts. The plan has 2-3 servings of fruit and 3 to 4 servings of vegetables per day. No meat as I am a long time vegetarian. Four slices of bread per day and 8 Ts of oats. Two or three special snacks (treats) per week and 1 or 2 special meals are 'allowed' (and recommended).

Can't and won't make a back up plan because this plan is what I am supposed to use at least until January.

Clean eating - minimal processed foods, minimal refined carbs, lower end carbs, higher end proteins, quality fats, nutrient-dense foods, "superfoods"
daily calorie limit

I track my food intake with MyFitnessPal, which allows me to enter my exercise and raise my daily calorie limit accordingly. My plan is to eat 300 calories below my calorie limit. I want to lose weight slowly and keep it off.

I use coconut oil and kombucha to counteract cravings and binges - only one binge in the 15 months since I started using coconut oil (thanks to GABY1948) and a glass of kombucha immediately settles sugar cravings. My biggest challenge is managing portions, they are a bit too generous on a consistent basis.

Atkins for me. I am a meat eater deluxe so it is a gimmie. You do have to add the carbs back slowly to see what ones are a problem. But staying super low carb long term is not a good option for anyone unless they are very carb intolerant.

Weight watchers would be a second choice

For the October 2016 Beck Reboot, my chosen diets are:

#1: Bright Line Eating: I have been doing this for several months
no sugar
no flour (except whole wheat rye bread which is apparently harmless for me)
three meals per day: breakfast, lunch, dinner and nothing in between
measure and plan all my food
plan meals in advance (I have a list 20 meals and I can pick any of them, all ingredients measured, calories an nutrients calculations calculated in advance)

#2 full tracking on SP Nutrition Tracker, following automatic maintenance calorie/nutrient recommendations - I did this for 18 months and found it very helpful in weight loss, and I know it works

Kriszta

Goal weight:
59 +- 1 kg /// 130 +-2 pounds
CET (Europe, Hungary)

Maintenance Lessons Learned:
-go on with the healthy lifestyle learned in weight loss phase
-just add healthy foods gradually to stop losing
-work out every day - 30-60 minutes is enough to maintain weight and good mood
-do not try to balance overeating by extreme workouts, it is not going to work
-avoid overeating, instead of satisfaction you get stronger cravings

I worked on Day 2 yesterday. My diets are the Mediterranean Diet and "No Sugar, No Starch, No Seconds."

Neither of these diets promote any processed food.

Rose. Kudos to you for setting a healthy plan for eating even though you "don't wanna". I know exactly how you feel. Have you read the introductory pages of the pink book. There's much there BEFORE we even get to Day 1 and Day 2.

Thanks for doing this with me. It's going to be a grand challenge. And we're going to succeed!!!

DAY 2

Diet...

I don't want to be on a diet. Whine!

My diet problem is that I sabotage myself.
I think I'm entitled for some reason to eat things I know I don't need to consume.
I get discouraged when the weight does not come off as quickly as I feel it should ...so then I throw in the towel for 3-4 months and undo what I just did.


#1
I will eat healthier, avoid processed foods, white flour and sugar, as well as portion control
Start with 1200 calories

# 2
adjust the # of calories I consume

I'm not picking another diet besides the Beck process itself. I don't have a problem figuring out what I SHOULD eat, it's the adherence part I have problem with, the sabotaging self-talk, saying "oh, just one won't hurt" kind of thing. So Beck is my ONLY diet. If I can stick to the day by day tasks in Beck, I'll be thrilled.

Beck Day 2 – Pick Two Reasonable Diets
1. A low fat vegan diet such as Eat To Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, which allows if needed, for an occasional bit of low fat fish and/or egg whites. And my modification to allow alcohol once a week. I belong to a dinner group and do not want to change my life entirely!

2. Calorie counting with emphasis on vegetarian.

First choice is weight watchers. Not liking how the points don't match up with the food chart here is spark. On the one I have points left, on the other I am over my limits. I eat fruits and vegetable that don't add to the points, but it doesn't translate.

My second choice is South Beach. I eat certain carbs and I am out of control.

I lost 30 pounds on Weight Watchers after my child. After the second, I dug up my old weight watchers materials and did it on my own. I have been doing weight watchers for the last few months but having too much trouble keeping on track. sooooo

plan #1 log food, count calories via sp. I'm also refreshing & reapplying BDS

plan #2 go back to weight watchers online. Maybe it would be better after BDS?

I'm 20 pounds heavier than when I was last on the Beck diet solution but ready to wipe out my negativity and just get on with it.

My 1 diet: I have an anti to dieting because I was only 5 pounds overweight when i started last time. Lost 20 pounds but then put them back on and more...so I need to do something that works. Having tried every diet you can imagine in the last year I'm going to do the following:

Modified Eat to live
3 main meals (mostly fruit, veg, beans)
2 snacks
2 cups or servings of grains or carb loaded veg
2 oz of nuts
1 treat in the evening if I feel I need it
1 mug of juice (either added as dressings/smoothies or as a drink)

2nd diet: Shredder nation by Dr. Ian Smith.

Again I just can't seem to follow any plan and I'm a work in progress...

I'm staying at day 2 till I get one full week (I usually screw up the weekends) under my belt.



The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your
life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on,
rely on, or blame. The gift is yours -- it is an amazing
journey -- and you alone are responsible for the quality of
it. This is the day your life really begins."

New goals:
Eat Positively
Exercise daily (that one is already achieved)
Experiment with 3-5 meals a day
Avoid binge for at least 3 weeks.

This is a hard task for me because I have been thinking I need to get with a program way before I thought of revisiting the Beck Diet Solution. Also, my husband needs to lose weight and I do not.
So, I am thinking of following the plan for McDougall Program for Maximum Weight Loss, with variations so the meals will meet both our needs. The second will be Eat For Health because that allows for more flexibility.

1) Weight Watchers online, with SP tracking at the same time when/if I see that I'm using my Points allotment on junk foods.

2) Weight Watchers meetings + SP tracking if I start to seriously slip up or feel unmotivated.

I've been revisiting this one a lot lately. Trying to figure out what works for me now with my life right now.
I'm taking an old diet I used in the 1980's called the Diet Center Program. I remember it worked very well. I have the book and I'm using it along with what I know from other diets I've been on and information we have now. It was a diet that in the 1980's was whole food based and discouraged processed foods.

1. Counting calories + tracking: this always works for me - until something goes wrong and I can't get back to it!!
2. I'm thinking of Atkins as a backup - never really tried it, but I've heard it's very good. Problem is feeling of deprivation. Perhaps I'll think of something else.

I read over day 2 again and noticed something that I did not see in the beginning. I am doing a dr order carb counting diet. and the dash diet as a back up but they both go hand in hand sort of. The dash includes fresh veggies, fruits and whole grains with lean meats It does not encourage eating sweets and limits fat intake. Becks speaks about diets that include indulgences within your diet.For me personally at times I can not do indulgences without going over board. WORK IN PROGRESS! A weekly treat may work??? Monthly would be better.. I'll see. She said that diets that put your favorite food off limits completely can cause you crave those foods sooner or later. TRUE! Yet if I start eating sweets or junk it is hard to stop and with betes I have to be careful. Deciding to have indulgences is not an easy choice for me. I've learned that I do better with prepackaged treats. I'll have to tread carefully with this. At restaurants I'd have to make a choice to have sugar free goodies (if offered on menu). Decide whether to give up rice, pasta or potatoes with my meal. Too many sweets can use up my carb choice at one meal. That is not wise and I am not going to give nutritious food for a treat. So I will attempt the monthly treat. If that does not work I will do twice monthly and etc.

I made a card about changing to different diets... so in case I start slipping into thinking that I must try this or that diet. When most of them work by you reducing your calorie intake and burning off more than you eat. No magic stuff.

Weight Watchers PointsPlus is my first plan. I also intend to continue tracking in SP at least one day a week on my saltiest day to keep tabs on my sodium. (My blood pressure came down from high when I lost weight and has continued low to normal.) Weight Watchers Simply Filling is my Plan B. I also have 3 weeks' worth of the Power Start Weight Watcher menus, but there are a few days I'd just skip because they have things on them I either don't understand (what is a steamed dumpling for one pointplus??) or don't care for. If I get totally fed up with WW I can go back to SP menu plans or tracking. They work for me, although WW is easier for me and works.

2 diets or life style changes does that sound better!


best life diet for diabetics/
dash diet
carb/counting exchange suggested by dr... so it starts... I like posting what I eat on line but it is not always possible ((still sharing computer with kids)) so I pen and paper it mostly. But I am not always no target when I pen and paper. I do not guess or estimate well enough just yet.

I think its working. The scale is going down. Now, I admit, I'm walking, too.I'm liking the approach. Its pretty easy to follow. One of the things for me has been getting out of control and rationalizing my snacks. Its taking care of the mindless eating I'd gotten into. And yesterday I did eat some candy, but it was intentional rather than mindless. My kids have a track meet today, so last night was our pre-meet type of dinner with pasta. I just ate a serving and stopped myself from getting more. Usually, I would have kept eating and have seen a gain on the scale today. Its giving me a structure and mindset to make my other programs work.

The No S Diet is my overall program. As I get better at it, I'll be using it with the Sonoma Diet and other programs that utilize the plate method of portion control. Not sure how much tracking I'll be doing. I'll use the tracker periodically to monitor my calories, but I like the idea of managing my food without being a slave to the tracker. I have to admit I've been struggling with the calorie tracking. I am still going to try to keep my calories around 300-400 calories a meal, most days.

I tried ww points plus, but really prefer Sparkpeople because then I know the sodium, and lots of other information. I will use SparkPeople and use WW as a back up.

My daughter had me doing mindful eating over Christmas, and I lost weight!

No regrets. I am who I am by traveling the path I've traveled. I'll just keep on traveling!
