I've watched relatives, friends and co-workers try one fad diet after another always with no results or results that vanished once they tried to enjoy a normal lifestyle.
Fast food diets, cabbage-soup diets, liquid diets (think Slim-Fast), Sensa, Dexatrim, and extreme lo-calorie diets all have one thing in common-you can't keep it up forever.
SP makes sense to me. The only other "diet" I have ever used was WW when I was 12 or 13 years old (way back when it was like SP with weighing food and counting calories.) That minor weight loss stuck with me until I left home for college and had to rely on myself for food choices. I have honestly never dieted as an adult. Even now, I don't consider this dieting--I am just learning how much fuel I need to lose weight and then only eating that much--of mostly healthy choices.
I can't imagine any other way.

I read this article on yahoo http://health.yahoo.net/articles/nutrition
/photos/5-fast-food-diets-are-they-safe#0 and found it very interesting. Can you imagine losing weight with one of 'those diets' or would you (continue) do the 'spark way' again?
I can definitely say that I would prefer the 'spark way' over any other diet even though it might take longer to lose all the weight.
