What is the longest time that you stayed on a diet?

Admit it, not just for health reasons, most people just love dieting to look good and feel great about themselves. I have attempted dieting for several times now but has never been successful. I am not that fat but I am not slim either and as my friend said "during summer, the only people who are not fat are those matchsticks". The longest that I have gone on a diet is I guess a month, that was when I don't have domestic helper that I have to eat the food that I personally prepared (which is not that good haha), meaning, I didn't have a choice. How about you?

Haha, 3 weeks. I counted, since my it was the amount of time I when I traveled. (Yes, dieting while traveling. It works for me). But then again, I gained it all back within 2 days. Sad. I really need more self control...

Hi keisey, I think we all do go on a diet at some time or the other.I too have had my fair share of diets and exercise routines to reduce weight. The best diet I went on was a fruit and soup diet as advised by a dietician and a friend which was great. In fact I started a discussion topic here on that subject here on mylot.I loved the very idea since I am very fond of fruits and vegetables , it was more like a treat than a diet lol....all the best keisey, have a nice day

It was at about 6 months. Well I have to admit I've started it because of health problems - I would never keep such hard diet if I had to do it to loose weight. The first 2 months were the most difficut ones. Then the diet starts to be just ordinary way of eating. I love sweet things, but when I haven't been eaten them for so long I didn't have the need to eat them and if I did it, they didn't bring me such pleasure as before starting the diet. I still don't eat so much sweet - I guess my eating habits are just different now.

good for you! :) but I beg to disagree, diet can also be healthy, it just depends on what type of diet program you are in. Foe example, fruits & veggie diet is healthy and the low sugar diet. :) I don't go for the not-eating diet haha
