You may want to think about what's causing you to stop and start and yo-yo before you try any other way of eating. If you've had so many false starts, I wonder if you've been WAY too restrictive then, because of the excessive restrictions (like M/E) set yourself up to binge\fail. IMO, until you get to the root of the problem, you won't be successful on any plan.
Good luck to you!
Sweat plus perseverance equals success!
