Thanks for the great article! :)
I don't think diets ever worked for me. Oh sure I could lose weight. But, as soon as I ended the diet, it came right back plus a little more. The only way for me to lose weight is to eat healthy and practice portion control.
Interesting to see the changes in the fads and the "easy" solutions
Oh my gosh I remember some of these; I've even tried some of them...Live ad learn...Thx
I had to laugh since I've tried several of these. Long term - count those calories and move more.
Interesting article with some laughing. Best diet for me is SparkPeople, tracking my food and exercise.
I credit all the diets I've been on for my weight and poor relationship with food.
Good summary of diets through the years. Enjoyed reading it.
That was a fun article to read. Remember the grapefruit diet but bacon was added to it. Now no grapefruit for me because of meds I take for blood pressure. Looking back, wish I weighed now what I did then - don't know why I was trying to lose weight! I also did Jenny Craig and it worked up to a certain point. The only diet that ever worked for me was Weight Watchers.
And I have done them all.
