Default What eating plan do you follow?

Hi! I am new here, but not new to dieting! I have tried so many plans and always put the weight back on or fall off the plan before I see any results! I want to lose 50 pounds and keep it off!!!! Any good eating plan suggestions?

I am on a calorie counting/fat counting program. If you are interested in how much food you can eat, go to and she has a healthy weight calc in the left hand corner, just click and answer the ?'s and it will tell you how many cal and fat to take in to lose either 1 or 2 lbs a week. I have lost 90 since Jan of this year with this a 7 day a week exercise.

Good luck on whatever you try! Keep trying until you find something that works for you!

I count calories...but I am pretty healthy about it, meaning that I don't use my calories on Snackwell's cookies and low fat ice cream. I try to eat clean, with multiple servings of fruits and veggies each day, and when I choose cereals-they are whole grain ones with lots of fiber-like Kashi cereals, shredded wheat, Grape Nuts, etc. I also eat two servings of skim no sugar added yogurt each day-for my calcium as well as the beneficial bacteria that is good for your digestive tract. I recommend this to anyone with a sensitive or nervous tummy. I also make sure that I get my protein requirements in each day through lean clean protein, such as chicken breast and lean fish.
With making sure I get all of these nutrients in-there is very little room for junk calories. I truly think that this makes a heap of difference.
I also think that exercise is equally important as the diet if you want to change the looks of your body. You can lose weight but still have all the flab and "lumps and bumps" if you don't exercise.

I'm also following the South Beach Diet (SBD) and loving it. It is working for many of us and I find it very easy to do week after week. I love NOT having to count points, calories, carbs, etc. All you have to do is eat from the allowed food list and avoid the "not allowed" foods.

I am doing Weight Watchers, I have lost 55 pounds since Jan. 2003. I like it because no foods are off limits and it is a healthy lifestyle. There is alot of info here and in the WW magazines...anything you can stick with and make lifestyle changes with will work!

I'm doing old fashioned calories. It's just easier for me, plus that doesn't make anything "forbidden". If I want a cheeseburger, I make sure I budget for it. I keep track of stuff at, and just make sure that calories in are less than calories out. They are, by about a thousand a day, but even with my exercise, it is SLOW going.

I'm also a calorie counter. I like the flexability and banking of cals. Much easier than points IMHO.

I don't eat big meals. I eat small amounts of anything I want all day long. I know if I eat too much during the day, then no snack at night. If I'm a "good girl" during the day, I get to eat a little bit more after dinner. I'v been a very good girl the last two days
