I'm currently still searching.

I lost my first 8 pounds in a week by cutting out soda.

Wow! 8 lbs just for cutting out soda. Congrats!

I really don't drink much soda, if I do drink it I try to drink diet.

I need to do low carb due to different health issues (it was recommended) but I'm not sure which way to go. I can read all the books in the world about low carb but what I'd really like it what peoples personal experiences have been.

Weight Watchers. I lost 80 lbs with it in 2006 for 6 months. I restarted it on the 6th and I've lost 12.6 lbs. I love WW. It is easy to remember the points. It works with me and gives me choices if I am eating out. It encourages healthy habits for life that even when I was off plan, I still used. It is one of the few programs that encourages exercise which is integral.

I am a calorie counter. This is a reliable, flexible way to diet. All diets in some way restrict calories. Calorie counting is also free and a way to prepare yourself for maintaining your weight loss. I plan all meals ahead of time staying within my calorie allotment. I have done other diets and find Calorie counting works best for me.

Calorie counting. It gives you freedom to eat what you want, so you don't feel deprived.

I've been on this diet for just over 5 months, and I've lost 60+ pounds.

The last diet I paid for ended up costing me close to a thousand dollars after it was all over with and I never lost a pound. I vowed to never pay for another diet again. This is one of the reasons why I have not looked into weight watchers. I know plenty of people that have successfully lost weight on WW but I just want something that is free. Like what bargoo said, counting calories is free. I'm tired of spending money on "diets". I need a way of life.

So how many calories/day do you consume? Do you worry about fat too?

calorie counting also,It teaches you to eat what you have at home but smaller or healthier portions . I started 11-11-08 And have lost 31.5 lbs
I by far think the best thing is IT"S FREE ~AND I NOW KNOW HOW TO ALWAYS LOSE THE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF.(You are just teaching yourself how to eat normal Which IS A lesson I defintely needed to learn.)

I would like to add the additional question of what do you do to/ how do you exercise?

Especially for calorie counters. Surely you aren't losing all that weight by just cutting down, are you?
If so, that's amazing!
(If not, it's still amazing. Bravo!)

I'm a calorie counter. I eat 1600-1800 calories per day. Mostly fruits, veggies, yogurt, cottage cheese, whole grains, lean meats, healthy fats, very little processed food.... I drink a lot of water and I exercise 7 days a week (weight train 3x per week with a personal trainer + cardio). I've lost ~86 pounds since August first.

I actually just started weight watchers because I'm horrible at calorie counting but counting points seems doable.

My weight loss so far has been from switching to a whole foods diet, cutting out a lot of junk in my diet, monitoring how much I eat, cutting out refined carbs, eating 'good' carbs. I based a lot of my eating habits on the south beach diet. Last year, I decided to give up animal products, sadly it didn't result in weight loss but I like it.

I agree that exercise has helped tremendously as well.

Wow, first off I am so inspired by everyone here. I started a meal delivery plan today thru ediets. I have a busy schedule and I don't have a clue when it comes to cooking. So I am hoping that by sticking with this for a few weeks I can learn and see what the right portions are and what to buy in supermarkets. And hopefully I can become a 'calorie counter' cus the ediets is kinda expensive. But as far as calories goes i'm consuming about 1500/day.
