I just tried a high protein diet called Dukan Diet and after one day I was already feeling sick. Now I'm back to Weight Watcher's Flex Plan. It's a little annoying having to measure and track all of your food, but it allows me to eat whatever I want as long as I keep the portions in mind.

I did low carb for a while. What they say is true. Once you go off of it, you tend to gain it all back and quick! I lost 100 pounds in 6 months and it probably took me three months to put it back on. I finding diets don't work. A person has to change their way of eating all together.

Hmmm. I'm not very familiar with the actual dietary reccomendations associated with the Blood Type Diet, but the scientific reasoning behind the concept is extremely flawed. D'Adamo also has a lot of his facts wrong concerning blood types, specifically the evolution of blood types. I have a fairly strong scientific background and have been volunteering for Canadian Blood Services for over 3 years. I'm not bashing the diet itself, because I don't really know what it is, just letting you know that the concept is very much pseudo-science. I'm an O and could NEVER follow 'the hunter' diet, yuck. But if it works for you, then awesome.
That's great. I started this diet I heard about through a neighbor, it's the Blood Type Diet. With my blood type it said I should be a vegetarian, eating tofu, fish, veggies and fruits. I'm going to give it a try for about a week and see how it goes, I will keep you all posted on what come of this. I think it should be for more than a week to give it a real shot. I will say this I have not eaten meat for 2 days and I do have a little more energy than normal.
I don't really consider it a 'diet', I really see this as a lifestyle change, but the Eat-Clean Diet truly made eating right click for me. It helped change my mindset about food, wanting to feed my body good, nourishing, whole food rather than processed garbage. Also, I find it is pretty easy to adhere to.
What "Diets" have you tried? Were they successful? If they failed, what was the reason for the failure?
* I have tried watching my portions and eating better. The failure was on my part. My husband and kids refused to eat healthy. After a while of cooking not so great meals and tweaking them for me, it got to me and I simply tapered off.
