    Changing your lifestyle is better. Diets are temporary and tend to fail or they work but you go off the diet and gain the weight again. A lifestyle change is more permanent, it means you change what you eat and the way you eat it, get more physically active, disease/conditions management, and such.

    I think the concept of a "diet" is somewhat misunderstood. We think of a "diet" as a temporary change in eating habits, whereas if we want to see positive results, we should adopt permanent new eating habits. This doesn't mean that we should never eat cheesecake again, but in moderation. A whole food permanent diet allowing an occasional treat is a great way to maintain good health.

    I lost 30 pds on Phentermine. I had no medical problems from taking it like deanng did. It is a miracle drug but you have to combine exercise & diet with it & keep it up once you get off the drug. I was on it for 6 months & you actually forget to eat. No appetite & tons of energy. Make sure you get it from a Doctor though because I've seen it online & it wasn't the real thing. It's a prescription drug only prescribed under the care of a physician.

    I lost 30 pounds by cutting down severely on processed foods. Eating mostly fresh foods. If you cook your own food instead of eating out or eating frozen dinners, you're going to be healthier. Better yet, grow your own food!

    the best way to diet is to eat all your meals in front of a full body mirror. while your are naked. but please do this only in the privacy of your own home!

    I no longer diet, but if I did it would only be due to prevent heart disease, diabetes and other diseases of this nature

    Weight Watchers provides a balanced diet and helps you make the necessary life style changes to lose weight and keep it off. Unlike many other diets, WW is one that you can live with long term. Downside is the expense....the fresh fruits and veggies can be expensive compared to junk foods.

    The only proven long-term weight loss solution for the morbidly obese and obese is weight loss surgery. While over 95% of "dieters" gain back all lost weight plus more, those who undergo surgery have the statistic of 75% of patients keeping off 75% of their lost pounds. Of course, there are people who can "outeat" the surgery, but the statistics are startling. What's even more startling is the judgment people make against those who have surgery, calling it an "easy way out". It wasn't/isn't easy, you still have to watch what you eat and do, and I've been at a healthy weight for ten years. When did weight become a determining factor in a person's character, and when did the method by which someone loses weight become both a determining factor in their character and, quite frankly, anyone's business to judge? Just sayin'...

    Phentermine was a miracle drug. Lost 23 lbs in 2 weeks. But ended up with hypertension and an enlarged heart and kidney issues. Not worth it.

    the Atkins diet is horrible and no one should use it. It may work, but it deprives your body of necessary things. I heard this is about cutting carbs out and you need carbs because it feeds your blood cells and neurons which are your brain cells.
