I am trying to find foods that are "for life". This is tricky for me because some healthy foods cause me to gain weight. I am currently trying a style of eating that has you eat carbs and protein meal or fat and protein meal but NEVER carbs and fats together except in small amounts. So I can eat carbs with fats but only if it's a very small amount...or fats with carbs if the fats is a small amount.

carb.....whatever you want to call it.  No grains, no sugar, no
legumes, no manufactured food products.  I eat meat
(beef/pork/chicken/fish), eggs, real butter, some cheese, LOTS of
veggies, bone broth, healthy coconut and olive oils, seeds and nuts (NOT
peanuts), and a few seasonal fruits.  I am semi-careful with portion
size, but not fanatical.  I don't have to count calories (I tried it for 3 days and consistently stuck to 1100 - 1200 calories with my normal paleo eating routines.)  I don't exercise as regularly as I should. 
I've lost a total of 25 pounds as of this morning, and I fit into
pre-children clothes (and my oldest DS is 26.)

I love this diet!  There's nothing I DON'T like aside from getting odd looks from people when I try to explain it to them.


Sounds good. am going to look this up. I may become a fan.

Am not currently on any diet, just eating healthy and taking Vit B Complex which helps with my metabolism and makes sure I dont add a pound even on a day I stray a bit. I've done the Master Cleanse before, I also tried out 3day/Egg Diet but I modified it to suit me and be healthy. I did and enjoyed Atkins too. Have also done atkins but all are in the past.

I just prefer to eat healthy over trying to 'diet'

Healthy living is a lifestyle and I don't think a diet is part of that.
