Daily shots - were they human growth hormone? and 600 calories per day. Bad diet. I gave up quick.

Atkins Diet - super low carbohydrate diet that I did in 1974. after my initial week of dropping 6 pounds I didn't lose any more weight for 7 more weeks of compliance. However, I got to eat a lot. I ate all I wanted of eggs, meat (including bacon), 4 ounces of full fat cheese a day, real cream in my coffee, and a lot of saturated and unsaturated fat; limited freggies - virtually no fruit and even had to measure my lettuce. It was a very difficult time in my life and I didn't gain, but it's not appealing to me and it can't be healthy.

1,000 calorie diet the doctor put me on back in the '60s. it was hard to be accurate because things weren't labeled like they are now. also, the family kept lots of treats on hand and my social life as a teen had constant temptations and on 1000 calories I was usually hungry. I didn't always spend my calories wisely either

Curves Member Guide - there is a workbook with daily meals and lines for substitutions. There are 5-6 small meals a day with plenty of protein. There are higher protein and higher carb plans. The higher plan carb about equates to SparkPeople guidelines, although with the bread and deli meats some days are a bit over sodium. It works. I used it back in 2003 when I was 80 pounds overweight. I've dug it out recently. Great program when hunger is the real issue. Some good recipes, too.

I tried one diet once, that involved eating mostly veggies. I didn't pay any attention to the amount of protein I was eating and I was exhausted all the time. I ended up with anemia and had to take iron supplements. I wasn't morbidly obese then but I was trying to become a size 6-8 with a frame that was a 12-14. I made myself sick trying to be something I wasn't.

South Beach Diet - I liked the healthy carbs-healthy fats approach, but had trouble finding recipes that didn't take too long, so for me it wasn't livable.

I once tried the Slimfast diet. Two meals of Slimfast and a healthy dinner. I got bored eating the same thing plus I was hungry all of the time.

I've had great success with Weight Watchers. It's easy and the meetings are fun.

protein sparing fast using liquid cherry-flavored protein = extremely unhealthy; took me months to get over it and I'd regained the weight long before I recovered
