previously I was on a diet of 1000 kcal and I ate only certain vegetables and fruits, now I try to eat reasonably - a lot of protein, vegetables, fruit, meat and go to the gym. I don't recommend fast weight loss with 1000 kcal diet. This diet is very tiring - I had a very large deficiency of vitamins

I gained weight on WW so I got a WW coach to help me and I gained even more weight. eyeroll... It just wasn't for me.

I did Atkins back in the day. I lost weight but I looked sick. Not for me.
I went vegan for a while and really enjoyed it. Didn't want it for life.

Now I follow SP and strongly limit my sodium and sugar. This is making sense for me.

We become what we think about. I think I'm just amazing. :)


So are you!!

I eat a diet that is unprocessed and...

1) High in vegetables and berries.

2) Moderate in protein.

3) High in whole food fats.

4) Low in sugar, both added sugar and also naturally occurring.

5) Low in grains, especially refined white grains. 1 serving of grain a day unless I’m extremely active then I may have another one.


Oops I already answered this question. Lol emoticon

I would not say that I am on a diet for I eat what I want in moderation. lol Ok seriously I eat small meals throughout the day, like every three hours. I fill up my plate with half vegetables and/or fruit depending on the day. One fourth with protein and the last fourth with what I call "comfort" food, like potatoes, stuffing, etc. I do not deprive myself of anything nor do I feel deprived. Also, I have not needed to count calories, which is a major plus. I have lost a total of 77lbs and this has worked for me. Now I am not saying its perfect, cuz there have been slip up days but it has worked for me.

I am on a Ketogenic diet as recommended by my nutritionist - phlabs.com/. A ketogenic diet contains low carb and high-fat diet with an average intake of proteins.

According to my nutritionist when we don’t eat adequate carbs, your body’s ‘favourite’ source of energy which is converted into glucose, your body is placed into a metabolic state called ketosis which converts fats into ketones and they work as a secondary food for your brain, muscles, & other organs. This results in intense fat burning and losing weight quickly.

Low carbohydrate, high vegetable, high whole food fat, moderate protein.

Essentially just low bread/grains, 1 serving a day. And 1 serving of low sugar fruit (berries) a day.

No calorie counting.

Mediterranean Diet.
Very easy, colorful and delicious!
Found a forum for it here on SP. It's not active, but it's a very nice team!

The Mediterranean Diet is very well researched, well known and popular. Can't quite figure out why the team is so small.

Yes, I go along with what the last poster said: counting calories. Also drinking lots of water and making sure I exercise every day.

The best type of Diet for me is simply counting calories. It has always been the best for me.

When You Draw Close To God, God Will Draw Close To You.

Spark People Team Leader, GLITTERGIRL, from Team, "I Can't Do This On My Own", helped me reach my goal in 2012. I was able to maintain my weight for several months, but now I have to get serious again as much of my hard work I let go of, putting my focus on another issue. I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.

I've been an ovo-lacto vegetarian for about 27 years. However, I didn't pay attention to nutrients and probably ate as many (or more) sugars/junk/refined grains as a typical non-vegetarian. Last week I decided to try Dr. Fuhrman's Eat to Live approach (whole foods, plant based diet) and so far 6 pounds down the first week. I'm about to head out on a lot of business travel so this is going to be my first real challenge.

50% carbs, with 2 servings of starchy carbs & remaining fruits & vegetables, 30 % protein, 20% fat because of 2 operations this Friday I was advised this diet for the next 12 months to replace my hip bones that are being removed & not replaced, also high Iron as well and not to lose weight at this time until bones are O.K. I try to eat more real foods & very little packaged foods, a lot of healthy home cooking. Also advised to not have nitrates.

I am on the summer challenge now. I have pleurisy, 3 types of anemia from Iron,folic acid,other vitamins not working,chronic pneumonia,chronic kidney disease and low blood pressure & blood clots in both lungs for 3 years..I am 55 years old.

When I see a photo of myself and I look fat, the amount of shame I feel is overwhelming. I immediately feel horrible about myself and want to crawl into a hole. It's pretty unbearable and it feels the only way to combat that is to "do something about it" which I know is conditioning. Also I've only ever had any success by tracking my food intake and exercising (though it should've led to more success). Is there a way to do that and still be healthy? I suppose there must be. But I think the way we fat shame in this country and all the ways our culture deals with these issues is so toxic that the problems only perpetuate themselves. But maybe calling it a problem is the problem.

Within my calorie range. Eating everything, including beef. I sure do like having so many fruit and vegetables to try.
I also like Kimchi for that added kick.

Tracking my food, making healthy choices of whole, nutrient dense foods and being active. Choices I know I will be able to sustain when I reach goal. I've lost before, but was unable to keep it off because I did it using methods that I can't sustain forever. No more fad diets!

I've tried everything I've ever heard of and nothing worked. I couldn't stay on them very long. Even Spark People menu's don't really fit my lifestyle. I'm trying to eat less, listen to my body and exercise more (cardio and weights). Tracking food helps and this time I'm finally seeing and feeling some success. One step at time.

No diet. Diets fail 95% of the time in the long term, and I had to learn that the hard way. I don't count calories either. I eat mostly "clean" (whole, unprocessed foods), avoid sugar most of the time, and practice portion control. 30 lbs down in 3 months without exercise.

I was low-carb for a very long time but could not lose, and was re-gaining.
I recently switched to weight watchers but I'm also keeping my carbs low(ish) - under 100g a day.

Hi, My name is Nancy and I have been put on the Paleo diet. Is there anyone else on it here. How do you use this site to help you with it. Any tips would be great. Doctor placed me on this diet and I will be on it for awhile. Trying to fight thyroid issues.

I'm not on any diet. I am calorie counting because I am a binge eater and diets don't work for me. Counting calories helps me by giving me variety and option to choose my own food but at the same time keeps me within a range so I don't over eat.

I tried them all, to various degrees of success, or failure, depending on how you look at it; until I finally gave them all up and devised my own plan. Unsurprisingly, that was the one that ultimately worked out for me in the long run. The principles of weight loss are universal, how we choose to apply them is uniquely individual, IMHO.

I'm kinda doing a combination of things. Counting calories, and trying to eat more well balanced. I'm fixing to start doing TOPS online which is about eating well balanced.

My diet: from scratch, everything in moderation.
My exercise: triathlon plus weight lifting (swim, bike, run, do each once a week plus 2 days of weight training 5 days of exercise a week! And I usually get 2 swim days in, so...)

I aim for a 1/3-1/3-1/3 calorie split between carbs, fat, and protein, with an emphasis on unprocessed foods, very little dairy fat, and high (natural) fiber intake.

I love to cook, so unprocessed foods are generally easier for me anyway, though I do make an exception for granola and whole-grain sandwich thins. I *can* make them, but it's easier to buy them.

Take life one day at a time - enjoy today before you worry about tomorrow.

Hi there, it's Megan! I'm reaching out because I just started a business with Arbonne! It's a vegan skin care and wellness company. I'm super excited and of course a bit nervous at the same time! As a part of my training I need to find 30 people who are just willing to hear a 20 minute overview about Arbonne. I get that it might not be a fit for you, but I'm just looking to spread the word and would love to buy you a cup of coffee if you could help me out!( or if long-distance: I would love to jump on the video conference with you for 20 minutes) I have a little goodie bag too for you with some amazing samples ! I know you're busy so I'll come to you! Would you be willing to be one of my 30?

counting calories, the point is lots of fiber, real foods. I don't waste my calories on coffee creamers or sweets.... I like whole grains, legumes, lean proteins and a pound of veggies daily, nonfat milk/yogurt and a piece of fresh fruit daily, nuts from the baking isle ~ because there's no salt, sugars added to those nuts.
+ hydrate! half-gallon (8 cups) water daily
+daily exercise a minimum of ten minutes

And I maintain a 100 day span between pizzas.... nice big loaded take-out pizza- any style any size from anywhere I want once every 100 days.

Pre-diabetic, wheat and lactose intolerant. I cut down dramatically on the amount and type of carbs and have lost 31lbs since 8/25/17.

Also counselling dealing with some long overdue issues has stopped the need to binge.

5:2 Intermittent "fasting" Eat healthy for 5 days but I don't count anything just try to not to gain and then 500 - 600 calories on the "fast days" Those days are mostly a lot of veggies and some lean protein and soup , lots of soup! Usually my "fast days are Mon and Thurs. So far its the easiest 'diet I have ever tried 8 pounds gone and I don't feel like I've been dieting!

Keto. Started out on Atkins but fine tuned everything and have had more amazing results in the health department since switching. Now that I'm sticking to my newer plan, the weight seems to be coming off a bit faster. That's not as important as how I'm feeling though.

I have counted calories for 7 years and eventually went Gluten Free almost 2 years ago. Best thing I ever did! Realized I was Gluten intolerant by trying it out and I lost more weight after that. Total weight loss has been 102 pounds so far!
Yes, I do exercise, but not at a gym, mostly walking is my main exercise. The worst thing you can eat is fast food, that causes me to gain almost instantly! I just eat healthy, watch the carbs and I am not strict on myself, I enjoy a treat once in awhile. You just have to realize it is just once in awhile and treat your lifestyle journey as a job you have to do everyday! NEVER GIVE UP! emoticon

I have been on it for 2 weeks...going into 3rd.... I lost 8 lbs then Thanksgiving was here... but I am back on the plan and waiting a few days to weigh again.

I try to have a meal every 2 1/2 to 3 hours ... I was never a big snacker. I can't exercise so my weight has crept up on me slowly... and losing is very slow because I can't ...exercise...

Good luck.. drink your water ... I use enhancers.

I am not on any diet, although I have pretty much tried them all in the past. My husband and I do follow a lot of the principles of the Mediterranean diet though because it is heart healthy. We eat lots of veggies, some fruit, lean proteins like chicken breast, fish, and beans and legumes, whole grains, healthy fats such as olive oil, nuts, and avocados.

Keto/low carb I found an anti-aging doctor who put me on Metformin (my blood sugar was 115 and my G.P said I didn't have diabetes which starts at 126, but this doctor said I was close enough and had me read the insert from the Metformin as I was Pre-diabetes) plus, a weekly shot of Bydureon, daily Armour Thyroid, and 3x daily Acarbose with meals. I have stopped with night time cravings and dropped 35# so far. I know I have to stay on low carb and avoid processed foods.
