If so, are you following a specific diet plan?

If so, are you following a specific diet plan?  I do count calories.  But I believe pretty much everything in moderation, although I try to find healthier alternatives for some foods.
How is it working for you? Fairly good so far.  I'm losing weight, and I don't feel half bad most of the time.  I am planning on tweaking my diet soon, leaning more towards fresh vegetables and a few less grains.
What is your favorite/least favorite thing about the diet?  Least favorite is logging everything.  But I do it regardless.  And favorite?  That fact that it works.

I am on the Paleo lifestyle. I do 90/10 allowing for occasional cheats. It helps a whole bunch. My least favorite? I miss coffee sometimes with my creamer.

I don't diet! Diets don't work. Getting the right nutrition in your body is what works. I get my nutrition from the most dense botanical plant on this earth. The nutrition that you get from this plant has more nutrients than what's available in the most healthiest foods. Message me and I can let you know what it is. I don't think I can put websites on here.

No, I don't diet. Instead, I've just cleaned up my eating to include healthier foods & beverages while avoiding the crap/fake foods that are available today. I don't feel that it is realistic to follow a restrictive diet to lose weight and/or get healthier, then expect to be able to go back to your regular style of eating and maintain the weightloss and/or health benefits. The only way I would follow & stick to a specific diet plan is if I needed it for a specific health condition (i.e. food allergy).

I wouldn't necessarily call what I do a "diet," but rather a lifestyle/way of eating. I try my best to eat whole foods... no processed stuff. I work hard to stay away from bread, pasta and grains. I am not perfect, but this way of eating has helped me lose weight. I have lost 26 pounds and still need to lose 16.

I do well when I give myself some clear goals or ultimatems. Last year I challenged myself to a "2 ingredient diet" which for me meant that I could only eat foods that I either made myself from whole ingredients or processed foods that had no more than 2 ingredients. I lost ten pounds in three months, but mostly it just forced me to think carefully about everything I ate. I learned to make crackers because I couldn't find any store-bought with 2 ingredients. They were super yummy (especially with a glass of white wine).

This year I'm trying to follow these rules - drink a glass of water (8oz) before each meal, eat 2 fruits or veggiees with every meal, no unplanned snacks. I'm struggling, but when I follow the rules I have good days. It's hard this time of year because it's gray and cold outside, so I don't exercise enough.

Blessings to all of you.

Im trying again.

What works for me is drinking more water,walk,weights,and cut my food intake in half.

I don't believe in diets but I do believe in my Paleo lifestyle. Switching my eating habits has made me healthier in numerous ways as well as helped with my 75+ weight loss.
