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.

1. The 17 Day Diet.
2. Sonoma Diet and Carb Lovers. Both based on the plate method of portion control.
All three diets are good carbs in the right amounts.
All along with Sparkpeople tracking my calories.

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.

Has anyone tried the Biggest Loser Club online as one of their diets? I'm thinking of using it as a back-up. I'm talking about the entire online program, not the type of competitions people often have at work.

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'm going to keep my food journal. I ALWAYS lose weight when I do.
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!

My primary diet plan: Weight Watchers Points Plus
My back up diet plan: Counting Calories through Sparkpeople.com Tracker (never used it, tho I have been a member of sparkpeople for a long time - under 2 different usernames).

I love W8W, and I hope it works for me! I love the flexibility & the science behind it. . .I just hate counting points and calories in general; but, I have to in order to make me happy!

I just received the green Beck book called The Complete Beck Diet for Life. It looks really good. It has some eating plans etc. I haven't seen it all yet but it looks good and I will probably use a combination of tracking my meals in sparkpeople and doing this Beck program. Trying to get into this all. Having a hard time reading everything.

My other options are also similar to my main one.

I have ranges set in SP for calories, carb, fat, protein. I will track my food and stay in these ranges.

I have two alternatives. One is more relaxed and one is stricter. It is not just about the amounts of food, but about my mode of tracking. For example, for the stricter weeks, I will track most of my foods in advance. For the relaxed weeks, I might just track in some "dummy" meals that are approximately the shape of what I am eating.

I had tried to put forth a non-tracking diet, a few weeks ago, and I have decided that this is just not going to work for me!

My Diet plan #1 is sparkpeople. Tracking my food and staying in my calorie range of 1500-1700 calories. I also plan on no fried potatoes, i.e hashbrowns or fries. On rare occasion only, sweets.
Lots of veggies and for the most part, whole grain bread but not much bread.

I really don't have an option 2. I don't really know what I would want to do differently than this as I really just want to eat healthily.

Option 2 may be an adjustment of option 1 i.e. change in calories or something like that.

It's a long story. I was already seeing a Life Coach before I started Beck. She was helping me with some diet things and also with business things (I'm a tutor and I also manufactured some educational placemats) and she also helped me with life things (like when my college friends were all going on a cruise and I was all nervous about the trip...)

So I had been seeing her for a couple of years on and off, and then her husband, who is a therapist, decided to start a teleconference group for the Beck Diet Solution. And his wife was going to sit in too and she offered a coaching option for people in the group if they wanted it. I did want it! So I met with her during my first few months of Beck. I did very, very well. And I kept doing well for a long time and then tapered off at a weight that I held for a long time. And I only saw my coach every few months to talk mostly about my tutoring business.

So I just emailed her and I said I want to meet once a week for the next six or eight weeks. It used to be $60 per hour and now it is $70. But thankfully, I can afford it, for something this important to me (and in general, her wise help makes me bring in more money in my business, so I don't even think of it as a cost.)

So, that's my story!

Sparkfully Yours, Judi

I am reconsidering my two diets. I did this whole big write up a couple of weeks ago, and then I did not do the diets. This week, I am starting to meet with my diet coach again. After I figure out my two diets, I will post here again!

Grace-- who are you on the Best Life board? I mostly post under the "100+ to Loose" thread but I know about some of the other active ones. I think the 50+ group is the biggest and most active (and you don't need to be 50 years old to join it, given how old your kids are I'm guessing you aren't there yet ;) Feel free to pm me about this-- I use the same name over there as I do here

I have only put my plan into effect "partway". I have been selecting the choices on my lists, but then I have gone off track, but still did not do the tracking then. I want to really fine tune my idea before the day I "start" and I hope it goes well...

I'm shifting for five days to an offline tracking system, focusing on hunger scale and portion control/meal balancing instead of counting calories. So I guess I'm switching my "diets"! Plan B will be to go back to the online logging

I am in phase one of best life for diabetes and I find tracking keeps me accountable and in cal range. I am not good at estimating when it comes to portions and or calories.

I have had incredible success with "Eat to Live" by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. Although my ticker doesn't show this, I have actually lost 48 lbs. on it since Jan. 1. It is the healthiest diet I know, it works, and it is not just a temporary fix but a lifetime plan. I am doing the 6 week plan in the book with the exception of not just limiting grains and starchy veggies but cutting them out completely until I have lost all excess weight. If I don't do that, I don't lose.

As for an alternate plan, I will use Dr. Fuhrman's book "Fasting and Eating for Health" to give myself an additional boost if I hit a plateau.

I am using the Beck Diet Solution because I found someone on Dr. Fuhrman's website who said it really works well with his plan to get in control of emotional eating which I really need help with. His plan only works if you can stick with it and I want to do his plan for life so I don't have to ever worry about gaining back all that I have lost.

The Best Life plan still really works for me (its not that different from spark) and it has phases, so my first plan is Phase Three where you track calories, my range is 1700-1850, and I can have small treats that fit into that range and an occasionally 300-400 calorie splurge. I will also work towards increasing my exercise again, especially in the areas of strength training and distance walking.

Back up is Phase One, which is slightly stricter in what kinds of foods you can eat but doesn't require logging or calorie counting and relies on portion/hunger scale instead. Its particularly useful when I'm traveling or otherwise off internet.

Those sound like good choices.

I'm still working on mine. I have already started "trialing" some ideas to see what I am ready to do. I'll write more as I figure it out.

I am somewhere between Day 1 and Day 2. On my Day 2 work of figuring out two diets, I am writing some notes and thinking right now.

For my first one, I am planning to track all food in SP and keep within ranges. I have some work to make this simpler so I will be able to stick to it.

For the alternate, I have been thinking. I don't just want to pick a second choice without thinking about when I might be using it. Beck talks about needing to have a second one in case you are not happy with the first one, not doing well, ..., so that you won't just give up. So, I have thought of three ideas about alternative diets:
1. If I just need a break from being stringent, I want to have one alternative that is slightly higher calorie and more relaxed.
2. If I need a jump start because my weight loss is not happening, I want a lower cal alternative that I can follow for about a week or two.
3. If I am just exhausted from the tracking, I want a simple, stable, uninteresting version that I can just throw into the tracker without thinking.

So, as I said, these are just thoughts. I am still working on all this.

Sparkfully Yours, Judi

I have picked calorie counting and the eat clean diet as my 2 diets. Is there another name for calorie counting other then just saying it that I do not know about?.

I'm trying to make this new lifestyle as easy as possible but having trouble keeping it simple which is why I usually fail. The silly all or nothing mindset rearing its ugly head.

And again..yep I am changing again. Still searching there is no magic cure for diabetes or weight loss it takes consistency daily. I recently checked out the bestlife Guide to managing diabetes and pre-diabetes by bob green. Restrictions and all. What I am currently doing is not working at all. Time to get serious and finally reach my goal weight. Interesting reading this will be my 7 books ordered...IF I ORDER IT!.


So again it the modified best life diet.
carb/counting exchange suggested by dr many times. LOL.....

I found it very hard to pick a back-up diet, however I'm going with Weight Watchers for my first one, and The Doable Diet for my second pick. This was basically your kilojoulles for the day broken up into a certain amount for breakfast, lunch, dinner and two small snacks, I'll have to look up the exact figures in the book.

Okay, so I have changed my mind on the diet plans. I am going to use Weight Watchers as my main plan. They have meetings here and I really think I need the accountability of the meetings to help me out.

My secondary choice will be the food mover....it is easy to do. I will only use it when I am out of town for extended periods of time or unable to make it to meetings or count calories for some reason.

Be blessed,
Dawn

Starting over,UGH! Pick two diets.#1 My favorite choice is counting servings and exchanges and getting 9 fruits and veggies,6 whole grains,3 dairy,two healthy fats and 8 glasses water and one cup of tea daily.I followed this originally from a Prevention weight loss booklet /article dated 2002.Works the best for me,I like focusing on getting my exchanges in instead of thinking of what I can't have..Back up will be the new weight watchers point plus..

For my primary diet I have chosen to count calories and track them here on SP. For my backup diet, I will switch to the 4 Hour Body plan if necessary to keep things interesting.

Either way, I will avoid eating sweets as much as I can because it sets me up for cravings for days afterwards. I will concentrate on eating more natural foods -- veggies, fruits, whole grains and clean meats (no breading, fillers, chemicals, etc).



Your life is not a dress rehearsal, it is the real thing. Do what makes you happy. Do it now.

I have tried diets before;
i now realize that i have to track my calories to stay around a 1630 cal intake average
i also realize that all processed foods will trigger my overeating
i also realize that this way of controlled eating has to be for life
i also realize that i have to be VERY cautious around sugar but i cannot imagine giving up sugar for the rest of my life

1. -- Tracking my food, making healthy choices, avoiding processed food as much as possible.

2. -- Weight Watchers as back up if I need more structure.
