Walking around the library yesterday I couldnt believe how many diet books there were.
Made me think of some that ive done over the years.

From programs, pills, books and chain letter style fads what are some that you have tried?

Me: weight watchers, scarsedale, atkins, cabbage soup, I took ephedra for a while in college.

There is a reason the word DIET has the word DIE in it

I've only tried WW, and I'm on it now.

I've only tried WW and it worked for me precisely because it's not a gimmicky diet. It's just about portion control and exercise.

So that's pretty much what I do now. I watch my portions, I drink lots of water, exercise and just don't worry about getting on the scale every day.

Oh I tried that lemonade with cayenne pepper fast thing for exactly one day. I don't even understand how people can drink it. So, gross.
I don't do any trends anymore. Screw the paleo. I just eat well, indulge sometimes, and exercise. Turns out that works!

I tried the South Beach diet for two weeks. It was really expensive AND I gained two pounds! :)

I really liked some of the recipes, so I kept what worked and decided to just work out more... I lost all the weight I wanted to and then some!

I can't "diet". I only lose weight by working out.

I did the cocaine/ecstasy/meth diet for a bit before I had kids. Does that count?

I took alli and it was disgusting. I did south beach and lost 60 pounds and kept it off for a long time. I tried paleo for a few weeks and it was too strict, so I'm doing a modified paleo right now.... I eat regular cheese and drink regular milk. I also have Greek yogurt.

I forgot to add slim fast.
No doubt eating healthy and balanced and being active is key.
I came from a family of dieters. Started in hs. im the only one in my family who isnt currently obese.
