Diet smhiet, which one do you use?

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Well, I promised myself that I would get to it after the semester was over, so here I am.
I'm ready for a change (again, but hey - at least I'm here, right?).

So now what?

I could go into the calorie counting stuff I've done on here before and had some success with, or I could do something else.

I've learned a few things in my psych class. We did a whole section on the body and weight. I also know that I'm a protein person. I have friends who swear by the low sugar/low carb thing. I just don't know what to do now.

What program/book/whatever do you do?

I should add to this that I received a Barnes and Nobles gift card for Mother's Day, so I'm looking for something inspirational, or directional when it comes to all of this.

Any ideas from Sparkville?

    I have the best success with the calorie counting because I'm not deprieved of anything, just have to watch the portions etc...

    I have a friend who is having wonderful success with the Paleo (spelling) diet, but I know it has a lot of restrictions. For example, if you are a coffee drinker coffee is a no no. Restrictions are bad for me personally because than I want.

    Weightwatchers can be helpful, I know it makes calorie counting easy with their point system. I just can't afford to do it. I hope that you find something that works for you.

    If you find a book that really changes your life in terms of weight control, PLEASE let me know.

    I am currently doing Weight Watchers (with very limited success, but my body is weird). That being said, as far as books for info and inspiration, I would highly recommend anything by Tosca Reno (Eat Clean books) as well as Volumetrics (basically, eat more filling foods with more volume for the same number of calories as more calorie dense stuff that won't fill you up).
