Top Diet Plans - Which is Best?

It is the time of year when the latest and greatest diet plans are the topic of television and magazine ads, and time for those of us who tend to gain weight over cold winter months (if you live in such a climate) are thinking of Spring and losing that weight.

Personally, I try to keep things simple...walking is my favorite form of exercise, to which I want to add some muscle toning exercises this year, and I use simple tools to keep me focused on how much I'm eating.  As soon as I start tracking what I eat, and see how the calories add up during the day, I quickly realize how easily we get off track and eat more than we should.  It seems to be in our nature, and hard to control in a super-size-it society.  

I was listening to a weight loss ad just this week, I believe it was Weight Watchers, and the woman started out by saying she had gained weight when she moved here from Russia because a portion size is SOOO much larger here in America.

Let me provide you, once again, with a couple of resources I've taken some time to write that many have found helpful, in the order of their popularity:

Replacing Nutrisystem with your Own Foods - this is a loaded page with many tools and links to tools to help you, plus information about many of the popular diets that are out there all in one place.

Portion Control with Meal Measure - a very simple way to get a handle on portion size.  There are several portion control items featured.

Wishing you the best as you seek to keep yourself at a healthy weight. And be encouraged, you don't have to look like a toothpick to be a healthy weight...recent studies show that a little extra weight can actually be good for you.

  1. With dozens of diet books coming out every year, it's hard to figure which one would be right for you. But nutrition experts say people who are successful at weight loss often have a plan that fits their lifestyle and that they are motivated to stick with.

    Some people like to diet alone; others like social support. It's best to follow something that you can stick with for a lifetime.
