I heartily agree with LLV, dieting made me fat. I started "dieting" in high school when I weighed 140 lbs. It started a terrible cycle of restriction, followed by weight gain - I ended up miserable and 190 lbs. Over restriction has terrible long term effects on the metabolism, it sets the body up to regain MORE weight. I ended up hurting myself in the long term for a short term success. I wish I could go back to my 20 year old self and explain how uncomplicated long term weight loss could be - so much pain I could have avoided!!

In my opinion (based on 20 years of "dieting"), any diet you plan to start and then one day stop is doomed to failure.
SIX YEARS at maintenance weight!
