I agree everyone is differant, I personally eat anything and everything but focus on portions. I found that if I cut out the junk/fast food ... I do not get nearly enough calories for the day. Just focus on smaller portions and go from there.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Each person is different. For me, I don't eat whatever I want- like junk food and stuff like that, but I do eat normal foods. I watch how much I eat, stay within my caloric, fat, carb, and protein ranges. I exercise at least 30min at least 3times a week, though I'm working up to 5 as of last week. I don't go to the gym because I can't afford it, so I do a biggest loser boot camp DVD and taebo. That's just what's worked for me. But yes, it can be as simple as watching what you eat, doing the calorie thing and exercising.

Good luck!

At 30 years old I am a professional dieter. I have done many different programs and many different fad diets.

But how does one go from dieting to creating a healthy lifestyle?

This may sound dumb. But I am confused with clean eating, low carb, no sugar, no processed food advice out there that it's making my head spin! How do you all do it?

Is it really as simple as eating whatever as long as you're within your calorie range, drinking water & exercising? Dieting has accomplished nothing for me, it's time to implement a healthy lifestyle.......something I can live with forever.

Thanks & sorry for the dumb question.
