What diet are you on?

Don't lie gurlfran, because I know you're all on a diet!

But seriously, I've been on sooo many diets it's ridiculous, and I think I finally found a good one. In one of my intro posts or whatever I talked about working for this new company called Chef's Diet, well I'm also on their program and I love it.

They make these fresh meals according to my diet preferences and they send it to my house, it makes life easier. What diets have you ladies (and guys) tried before? I feel like I've done them all, they're all gross.

But you guys should look at their site and let me know what you guys think! It's MOD EDIT, be serious now.

I always need an excuse to buy smaller jeans, I've lost like 5 lbs already! Looking forward to 15 more :P

I'm on the burgers, cookies and celery sticks diet! Ok... not really, I just eat whatever... as long as its not insanely greasy.

BUT, I keep hearing adds on the radio for (I think it's called) The Hollywood Cookie Diet! Seriously... they say you replace 2 meals a day with cookies... and I just about fell on the floor laughing.

I've learned through trial and error that diets do not work for the long-term so I dont waste my time. I eat healthy food and exercise.

same as all of these. Healthy food w/ small portions through out the day, minimal sugar, only whole wheat breads & pastas, no soda fast food, no heavy carbs for dinner exception is some days when I lift OR on days before I do a major run/hike. LOTS OF WATER.

I do heavy lifting 3 times a week, running/hiking up/downhill 2 - 3 times a week(although skipped hiking/running for the past month due to no time and to hot).

I eat whatever I want as long as it has a ton of fiber in it.

But seriously, I eat whatever I want one day per week (go out to dinner), other days, I only eat whole wheat carbs and only drink coffee and water. I work out every week day, and sometimes I ride my bike on the weekends.

It's really strange to me how we so often use the word "diet" as a verb.

Anybody who eats anything is technically on a "diet"...you're diet consists of what you eat, silly .

Anywho, "Diets", as they're typically thought of...you know, the starve-yourself-pretty-in-three-weeks sort of things only work to a persons disadvantage in the long run. Fad diets, atkins, etc, can work great in the short term, but at the cost of denying your body certain needed nutrients...and can be potentially dangerous.

double cheeseburgers without buns, whole plates full of bacon, "hey, it's OK, I'm on the Atkins diet!". Yeah, right. Keep yer heart disease.

The only way to lose weight is to adopt a calorie-deficit diet, but it has to be done in moderation. Crazy starvation diets only slow down your metabolism, making it more difficult to burn the calories that you take in. This understandably creates a lot of frustration...and can easily break a person's willpower.

The other thing to remember is that to a certain extent, it's not the quantity of the calories, but the quality of the calories that you take in during the day. Clone yourself, have one of you go on a balanced calorie-deficit diet, and have the other one consume an equal amount of calories each day in table sugar. You'll both lose a similar amount of weight, but the person on the sugar diet will lose more of that weight in muscle mass, and less of that weight in fat.

And losing muscle weight isn't a good thing for anybody who wants to decrease their bodyfat. The more muscle you've got...the more lean mass in your body, the higher your basal metabolic rate (The easier it is to burn calories).

So, with all this in mind, IMO, the most effective diet a person can go on is one that is high in protein (mostly from low-fat sources), moderate in carbohydrates (mostly from fibrous sources, use sugars sparingly), and low in fats (mostly in unsaturated forms).

This, coupled with an exercise routine consisting of some weight-training and a little cardio will give a significant boost to a person's metabolism. If you want to lose weight, cut back a little on the portions, but keep the foods the same. Remember that 1-2 pounds a week is healthy weight loss...anything more than that is a little shady.

And whatever you do, stay away from diet pills. They don't work, and they're usually so loaded with caffeine that you're on edge for the rest of the day.

i eat like a Trucker.
i have the worst diet ever and being in my mid 40's, i need to change it.
i've never been on a diet to lose weight, do not work out or even exercise for that matter... other than running around being a wife/mom...and have never paid attention to calories, carbs, whatever else should be monitored.
i eat mostly stuff that's high calorie and high fat..because it taste good
i drink coffee all throughout the day and i smoke. man, i suck.
however....recent events in my life have persuaded me to believe i need to live a more healthy lifestyle.
now i just need to figure out how i'm going to do it and not want to shoot myself in the head first.

Nola is your health okay?? I can't have you getting sick on me again; I even forgot my CC numbers by the time you got better

Maybe you can ease into a healthier nutrition plan, and I'm sure you do enough running around as wife and mom that you wouldn't need to do too much else as far as exercise goes.

I'm glad you put "IMO" somewhere in this paragraph.

yeah I work out a lot so I think a plate of bacon is ok sometimes. I think 2 times a week and a PLATE full is a bit of an exaggeration though. I would actually say it is 0 - 2 times a week and 4 pieces when I do. Considering the amount of work out I do I doubt it is really going to affect my health. I could understand if I weighed 250 and never worked out and ate a bunch of other junkz with it .. but my weight and over all physical fitness is pretty good.


As for the 2nd question I guess we are already going on this one and so we will stick with it.

Stopping at noon with the coffee may be a good idea. I allow myself one large mug in the morning, and then I can't have any coffee or soda (diet) until I get at least 8 glasses of water in. Eh, it's something.

well, if it's any consolation.. i do not drink soda or any other beverage containing caffeine.. and i drink water throughout the day.
probably 3 or 4 cups for every cup of coffee.
the only other beverage i drink would be juices.
i don't drink alcohol AT ALL.
