Well like most of you, I decided to go on a diet for my New Year's resolution.  I pick Nutrisystem as my diet of choice, mostly because that is what Michelle picked.  We want to get down to our original weight (or close to it) before the wedding in May.  Well after 3 weeks I have lost 12 lbs.  With this diet, you have to eat pre-packaged food every meal and buy for food for a month.  Kinda crazy.  I am pretty happy with the progress and the food isn't that bad. 

Anyone else have positive progress on their diets?

Not frozen, but pretty good pizza. Actually nothing is refrigerated, so my cabinets look like a grocers shelf, the same thing in a single file line. :D

Never tried one of those diets as once you lose the weight and stop buying their food you go back up.

Easiest way is to learn what bad food you are eating and just reduce by a little bit each week and exercise more (exercise is harder but you end up having more energy to stay up later for coding).

I've lost 6lbs over last 2 weeks from just starting to exercise, cutting out 1 can of coke a day and not having mcdonalds fries when going their. Just get the burger without fries. Simple things work the best.

I prefer bulemia............but I always forget the purging part. I'm still searching for that fast food diet and so far my research has shown inconclusive results. I've tried cutting out little stuff too, like the mustard and tomatoes, but with no luck. I thinking of trying the reverse Atkins diet.........nothing but carbs. That sounds healthy.

My approach is one I learned in basic HPE in college, which is to reduce intake and exercise more. I really think the exercise is key, and you should pick something you enjoy. I enjoy tennis, so I play about three times a week now. I've also cut out sodas from my diet, which were tons of empty calories for me, and tried to eat better in general. I've lost over 40lbs. over the last 2-3 months and am still going.

Another pointer is to build up your muscles while exercising; this will raise your basal metabolic rate, which basically means you burn more calories just by sitting around.

I don't go for the fad or temporary diets because they either don't work, cost too much, or you gain it back when you're done. It really requires a life change, if you find yourself overweight and know you've just been gaining for a long time.

Did I mention exercise? :)

Iam a elder, living a nurse home. in my dinner, I eat more Fiber-Up with Whole Grains. Fiber is another important nutrient for the elderly. Getting enough fiber in your diet prevents constipation, may help lower blood cholesterol levels and aids in blood sugar control. Like fruits and vegetables, whole grains are also a source of fiber. Furthermore, whole grains also help you meet your daily B vitamin, iron, magnesium and selenium needs. At least half of the grains in your diet should be whole grain, and should fill one-quarter of your plate at each meal. Whole grain options include whole-grain bread, oatmeal, brown rice, whole-grain ready-to-eat cereal and whole-wheat pasta.
