Ginger! There are a lot of really good weight loss programs out there, and you definately don't need to just eat salad and broccoli!
There are a lot of members on the board whom are on different programs, WW, Jenny Craig, Nutri System, LA Weight Loss. Some members just to prefer to follow the food pyramid and count calories. You need to find what is right for you. On a personal note, I did Nutri System many years ago and had success with it (in that I lost the weight, did not keep it off though
). From recollection, the food is mostly freezed dried and/or canned. The plan works well in that it controls your portions. However, I did find after awhile the food started not to taste as nice. As well, it got monotous after awhile, not a great deal of varaition. When I did it, Nutri System used to have a location that I would go into for a weekly weigh in and consultation. I believe today (in the States, Nutri System is no longer in Canada) you receive the food in the mail, so I am not too sure about the support involved.
