Joeywhat What I've found worked best was to take a couple weeks and experiment with healthier foods. I've not only found that healthy foods can taste great, but that they can sometimes taste better then unhealthy processed foods.

Whole grain (steel cut) oatmeal? Freakin' delicious. Put a small amount of maple syrup for a little extra sweetness if you desire. Real brown rice (and not the instant crap)? Again, freakin' delicious. I only eat white rice with sushi now. Cauliflower? Perfect replacement for potatoes. They're great mashed, and I also like them roasted with a little butter and olive oil with real parmesan cheese and panko bread crumbs.

Anyways, the point is that a lot of people fail because they think they need to eat food that doesn't taste good. While I still like a fair amount of sweets (which can be problematic as there typically aren't many good replacements for that...), I've replaced a LOT of the processed foods with healthier alternatives, and they taste better. I think many folks just don't know how to prepare healthy food that tastes good, so they end up only eating the off the shelf "health food" crap, which tastes like butthole.

Hoklo I dont think so that dieting is the solution of loosing weight. Only ten peoples loss their weight out of one hundred. We just eat normal diet like fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy item and do some proper walk after eating. That's enough for a healthy person.

Lia Fiorano I agree that a lifestyle change will be more beneficial than a diet routine. It's not simply about eating specific types of foods that won't impact weight gain - it's about LEARNING how to eat, LEARNING what to eat and LEARNING how to maintain good health. Humans are omnivores - we require meat and vegetation in order to have healthy bodies. All those supplements and food restrictions were not meant for our bodies to process. Go back to the basics... meat, fish, poultry, eggs, breads, cereals, fruits, vegetables, etc... stay away from the junk. I did this in high school, in addition to maintaining a high intensity work-outs (joined track and ran 6 - 8 miles a day), and went from 150 to 105 in a year. After 2 months, I didn't even have to think about what I was doing. It all became natural.

When I stopped following my diet in college, it was 2 years before I was back up to 150. It was amazing how lasting the lifestyle was. I'm back on it again... after many years of eating junk. So far, I haven't lost a ton of weight, but I feel better already. And I don't crave sugar or junk food - which was the biggest obstacle. Telling myself I didn't need it was harder than reasoning with myself and saying a little won't hurt. An intial 10lbs was lost in the two weeks that I did that. Now it's all maintaining and work-outs.

But good luck in whatever you do! The idea, I'm assuming, is that you'll be healthier in the end.

deezx5 You will crap like a wild animal if you eat nothing but fruit. I've looked into a lot of different diets and cleanse things people tell me about mainly out of curiosity. If you must do some kind of cleanse this is the best one I've seen

I have never tried this and likely never will. Similar to Joeywhat's advice my diet solution is to eat smaller meals, less meat, more fruits, raw vegs, nuts. Grilled instead of fried, wheat crackers instead of chips, dried fruits and granola instead of cookies, tea instead of coffee. Limit sodium intake, no fast food, no sweets, limited carbonated beverages and make them diet.

Rafal eat what ever you like in a moderation and exercise. That is the best diet.

mix1983 There's a guy at work that eats nothing but fruit. He spends more time in the bathroom than working.

Joeywhat I'm of the opinion that any 'diet' you choose will ultimately fail.

You need a lifestyle change.

I'm also of the opinion that there's no need to cut out a certain element of your diet short of the BS and processed crap...i.e. don't cut out most the fat, or most the carbs. Your body NEEDS these. Instead, watch how much of each you eat, and make sure what you do eat are GOOD. There is a thing as good carbs and good fat. Your body NEEDS these to function properly.

That and just not eating as much...there are people who lost weight eating strictly donuts and ice cream because they limited their intake to 1500 calories per day. That's obviously not healthy but it proves the point...don't eat as much, and eat better foods and the weight will come off.

But anyways my main point is to not diet...but change your lifestyle. Because if you diet, the minute you go off the diet the weight WILL come back. I know this, I've done more diets then most, with no results. It's about making permanent changes.
