Diet Plan #1: In general, increase my fruits and veggies, decrease carbs, and limit the junk food.

As suggested by Judith Beck's book, Beck Diet for Life, I will try to eat 2 cups of fruit per day and no more than 200 calories of junk food.

Whenever I eat I will try to sit, eat slowly and enjoy , and will not eat after 7:00.p.m.

Diet Plan #2: 5:2 Diet

My diet is my food plan.
Eating 3 meaks and 3 snacks, reasonably healthy foods at set times, in prescribed amounts. The plan has 2-3 servings of fruit and 3 to 4 servings of vegetables per day. No meat as I am a long time vegetarian. Four slices of bread per day and 8 Ts of oats. Two or three special snacks (treats) per week and 1 or 2 special meals are 'allowed' (and recommended).

Can't and won't make a back up plan because this plan is what I am supposed to use at least until January.

Clean eating - minimal processed foods, minimal refined carbs, lower end carbs, higher end proteins, quality fats, nutrient-dense foods, "superfoods"
daily calorie limit

I track my food intake with MyFitnessPal, which allows me to enter my exercise and raise my daily calorie limit accordingly. My plan is to eat 300 calories below my calorie limit. I want to lose weight slowly and keep it off.

I use coconut oil and kombucha to counteract cravings and binges - only one binge in the 15 months since I started using coconut oil (thanks to GABY1948) and a glass of kombucha immediately settles sugar cravings. My biggest challenge is managing portions, they are a bit too generous on a consistent basis.

Atkins for me. I am a meat eater deluxe so it is a gimmie. You do have to add the carbs back slowly to see what ones are a problem. But staying super low carb long term is not a good option for anyone unless they are very carb intolerant.

Weight watchers would be a second choice

For the October 2016 Beck Reboot, my chosen diets are:

#1: Bright Line Eating: I have been doing this for several months
no sugar
no flour (except whole wheat rye bread which is apparently harmless for me)
three meals per day: breakfast, lunch, dinner and nothing in between
measure and plan all my food
plan meals in advance (I have a list 20 meals and I can pick any of them, all ingredients measured, calories an nutrients calculations calculated in advance)

#2 full tracking on SP Nutrition Tracker, following automatic maintenance calorie/nutrient recommendations - I did this for 18 months and found it very helpful in weight loss, and I know it works

Kriszta

Goal weight:
59 +- 1 kg /// 130 +-2 pounds
CET (Europe, Hungary)

Maintenance Lessons Learned:
-go on with the healthy lifestyle learned in weight loss phase
-just add healthy foods gradually to stop losing
-work out every day - 30-60 minutes is enough to maintain weight and good mood
-do not try to balance overeating by extreme workouts, it is not going to work
-avoid overeating, instead of satisfaction you get stronger cravings

Calorie counting is great, especially if the tracker displays macronutrients as well.

Rose. Kudos to you for setting a healthy plan for eating even though you "don't wanna". I know exactly how you feel. Have you read the introductory pages of the pink book. There's much there BEFORE we even get to Day 1 and Day 2.

Thanks for doing this with me. It's going to be a grand challenge. And we're going to succeed!!!

DAY 2

Diet...

I don't want to be on a diet. Whine!

My diet problem is that I sabotage myself.
I think I'm entitled for some reason to eat things I know I don't need to consume.
I get discouraged when the weight does not come off as quickly as I feel it should ...so then I throw in the towel for 3-4 months and undo what I just did.


#1
I will eat healthier, avoid processed foods, white flour and sugar, as well as portion control
Start with 1200 calories

# 2
adjust the # of calories I consume

I'm not picking another diet besides the Beck process itself. I don't have a problem figuring out what I SHOULD eat, it's the adherence part I have problem with, the sabotaging self-talk, saying "oh, just one won't hurt" kind of thing. So Beck is my ONLY diet. If I can stick to the day by day tasks in Beck, I'll be thrilled.

Beck Day 2 – Pick Two Reasonable Diets
1. A low fat vegan diet such as Eat To Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, which allows if needed, for an occasional bit of low fat fish and/or egg whites. And my modification to allow alcohol once a week. I belong to a dinner group and do not want to change my life entirely!

2. Calorie counting with emphasis on vegetarian.

First choice is weight watchers. Not liking how the points don't match up with the food chart here is spark. On the one I have points left, on the other I am over my limits. I eat fruits and vegetable that don't add to the points, but it doesn't translate.

My second choice is South Beach. I eat certain carbs and I am out of control.

I lost 30 pounds on Weight Watchers after my child. After the second, I dug up my old weight watchers materials and did it on my own. I have been doing weight watchers for the last few months but having too much trouble keeping on track. sooooo

plan #1 log food, count calories via sp. I'm also refreshing & reapplying BDS

plan #2 go back to weight watchers online. Maybe it would be better after BDS?

I'm 20 pounds heavier than when I was last on the Beck diet solution but ready to wipe out my negativity and just get on with it.

My 1 diet: I have an anti to dieting because I was only 5 pounds overweight when i started last time. Lost 20 pounds but then put them back on and more...so I need to do something that works. Having tried every diet you can imagine in the last year I'm going to do the following:

Modified Eat to live
3 main meals (mostly fruit, veg, beans)
2 snacks
2 cups or servings of grains or carb loaded veg
2 oz of nuts
1 treat in the evening if I feel I need it
1 mug of juice (either added as dressings/smoothies or as a drink)

2nd diet: Shredder nation by Dr. Ian Smith.

Again I just can't seem to follow any plan and I'm a work in progress...

I'm staying at day 2 till I get one full week (I usually screw up the weekends) under my belt.



The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your
life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on,
rely on, or blame. The gift is yours -- it is an amazing
journey -- and you alone are responsible for the quality of
it. This is the day your life really begins."

New goals:
Eat Positively
Exercise daily (that one is already achieved)
Experiment with 3-5 meals a day
Avoid binge for at least 3 weeks.

This is a hard task for me because I have been thinking I need to get with a program way before I thought of revisiting the Beck Diet Solution. Also, my husband needs to lose weight and I do not.
So, I am thinking of following the plan for McDougall Program for Maximum Weight Loss, with variations so the meals will meet both our needs. The second will be Eat For Health because that allows for more flexibility.

1) Weight Watchers online, with SP tracking at the same time when/if I see that I'm using my Points allotment on junk foods.

2) Weight Watchers meetings + SP tracking if I start to seriously slip up or feel unmotivated.

I've been revisiting this one a lot lately. Trying to figure out what works for me now with my life right now.
I'm taking an old diet I used in the 1980's called the Diet Center Program. I remember it worked very well. I have the book and I'm using it along with what I know from other diets I've been on and information we have now. It was a diet that in the 1980's was whole food based and discouraged processed foods.

1. Counting calories + tracking: this always works for me - until something goes wrong and I can't get back to it!!
2. I'm thinking of Atkins as a backup - never really tried it, but I've heard it's very good. Problem is feeling of deprivation. Perhaps I'll think of something else.

I read over day 2 again and noticed something that I did not see in the beginning. I am doing a dr order carb counting diet. and the dash diet as a back up but they both go hand in hand sort of. The dash includes fresh veggies, fruits and whole grains with lean meats It does not encourage eating sweets and limits fat intake. Becks speaks about diets that include indulgences within your diet.For me personally at times I can not do indulgences without going over board. WORK IN PROGRESS! A weekly treat may work??? Monthly would be better.. I'll see. She said that diets that put your favorite food off limits completely can cause you crave those foods sooner or later. TRUE! Yet if I start eating sweets or junk it is hard to stop and with betes I have to be careful. Deciding to have indulgences is not an easy choice for me. I've learned that I do better with prepackaged treats. I'll have to tread carefully with this. At restaurants I'd have to make a choice to have sugar free goodies (if offered on menu). Decide whether to give up rice, pasta or potatoes with my meal. Too many sweets can use up my carb choice at one meal. That is not wise and I am not going to give nutritious food for a treat. So I will attempt the monthly treat. If that does not work I will do twice monthly and etc.

I made a card about changing to different diets... so in case I start slipping into thinking that I must try this or that diet. When most of them work by you reducing your calorie intake and burning off more than you eat. No magic stuff.

Weight Watchers PointsPlus is my first plan. I also intend to continue tracking in SP at least one day a week on my saltiest day to keep tabs on my sodium. (My blood pressure came down from high when I lost weight and has continued low to normal.) Weight Watchers Simply Filling is my Plan B. I also have 3 weeks' worth of the Power Start Weight Watcher menus, but there are a few days I'd just skip because they have things on them I either don't understand (what is a steamed dumpling for one pointplus??) or don't care for. If I get totally fed up with WW I can go back to SP menu plans or tracking. They work for me, although WW is easier for me and works.


My Keys to Success = Tracking! Super Foods! Step Up Cardio! And most important: Quit Quitting!!

2 diets or life style changes does that sound better!


best life diet for diabetics/
dash diet
carb/counting exchange suggested by dr... so it starts... I like posting what I eat on line but it is not always possible ((still sharing computer with kids)) so I pen and paper it mostly. But I am not always no target when I pen and paper. I do not guess or estimate well enough just yet.

I think its working. The scale is going down. Now, I admit, I'm walking, too.I'm liking the approach. Its pretty easy to follow. One of the things for me has been getting out of control and rationalizing my snacks. Its taking care of the mindless eating I'd gotten into. And yesterday I did eat some candy, but it was intentional rather than mindless. My kids have a track meet today, so last night was our pre-meet type of dinner with pasta. I just ate a serving and stopped myself from getting more. Usually, I would have kept eating and have seen a gain on the scale today. Its giving me a structure and mindset to make my other programs work.

The No S Diet is my overall program. As I get better at it, I'll be using it with the Sonoma Diet and other programs that utilize the plate method of portion control. Not sure how much tracking I'll be doing. I'll use the tracker periodically to monitor my calories, but I like the idea of managing my food without being a slave to the tracker. I have to admit I've been struggling with the calorie tracking. I am still going to try to keep my calories around 300-400 calories a meal, most days.

I'm going to keep my food journal. I ALWAYS lose weight when I do.
I tried ww points plus, but really prefer Sparkpeople because then I know the sodium, and lots of other information. I will use SparkPeople and use WW as a back up.

My daughter had me doing mindful eating over Christmas, and I lost weight!

No regrets. I am who I am by traveling the path I've traveled. I'll just keep on traveling!
