    You can lose weight without the aid of a meal plan from a company making money by telling people that eating their crappy diet bars can drastically change their lives. Excersising, as simply as walking 30 minutes a day everyday, combined with watching what you eat, cutting back on soda and sugar, can make you drop pounds fast. People have begun to get a little lazy these days and have decided that making healthier decisions is a lot harder than subscribing to a money wasting diet factory that's not completely guaranteed to help them lose weight. Doing it naturally is a lot healthier.

    The best way to lose weight is watch the intake of calories - people overeat and take too many calories in daily.

    Not being able to stay away from foods you know are not good for you or from overeating is often much more than a lack of will power. It is often a real addiction that is a lot harder to stop than you might think.

    The reason I did not make dieting as a New Years resolution as I was already on one when New Years rolled around. I have been on Weight Watchers since July 2014 and am now down 63 lbs. I have 48 left to go. Nutrisystem also worked very well for me in the past. My Weight Watchers is my future. It's been amazing for me. Life changing for the better in every way possible. It's just what I need healthwise : easy, tons of positive encouragement, a healthy lifestyle (including exercise), and something I can stick to for life. I will be wtih WW forever. After done we go into the maintenance phase and become lifetime members and no longer have to pay. Its not enough to take it off, I am going to keep it off this time. :-)

    I actually have the opposite problem i want to gain weight but can't. However i'm not going to go out and eat a bunch of crappy fast food or buy a bunch of processed junk food from the store. Maybe this is why i don't gain weight ( obviously my genetics and metabolism are a huge reason for this too) although i eat a lot, the food i eat are fresh and not loaded up with a bunch of chemicals.

    I found that no diet works if you don't control portions .more calorie burn and a controlled amount of calorie intake. I lost 50 pounds when i actually started doing this. I hated Atkins diet.

    bonwit, your handle should be halfwit. You obviously no nothing of compulsive or emotional eating. Willpower doesn't come into the picture when it comes to such issues.

    Zyni has the right idea. All diets simply indicate on inability to exercise regularly and eat sensibly, not making excuses for slathering butter on everything, eating pints of ice cream on impulse, diving into the potato chips whenever. If you can choose when to answer the telephone or when to get up or if you can write the word "NO" on a piece of paper, you probably have enough common sense to eat sensibly. It's not called "self-indulgence"--it is called an application of will power. Like any human application, the more you use it, the easier it is.

    Long term, healthier eating habits are better than "diets."

    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.
