Everyone talks about diets that don't work for weight loss.Are there any diets that made you lose weight?

i guess it doesn't depend on diets.my experience of losing weight rests with the reducing the pressure as much as possible.it only needs 7 days to be successful.try to be togother and live with the persons who are looked like being comfortable.in a word, relax yourself as possibly as you can.now i am trying another way to lose weight.it is called Yoga.

You're right,I heard that stress can cause weight gain and prevent you from losing weight.Yoga sounds very relaxing.I may have to try that.

I think the best thing to do first when you go on diet is determination to lose weight. Second, self-control over the food that you, the quality and the quantity that you eat. When you are on diet you can still eat your favorites but with minimum scope. If you used to eat 3 cups of rice, make it one. Ignore junk foods and unhealthy foods. Lastly, do your regular exercise at least one hour per day.

it is true that the world over, both in the reality as also in this virtual place, works out MILLIONS of DOLLARS, or even more, in suggesting DIETS for reducing weight. but, reality is, .. if you eat simply, properly, timely and healthily, .. you need not worry about any such weight loss or weight gain! This is not my quotation. Ayurveda, the Indian Traditional medicine tells about this. [quote] " Mitasi, Hitasi, Kalasi " [/quote] in sanskrit language means .. mita = small and simple, Hita= which is suitable to your body, Kala= timely. And, Dr. Brian Weiss of the United States of America, if I remember correctly, has written a wonderful book "Diet Wise". where more is discussed. Goodluck

I don't do any diets anymore.When you do lose,to maintain the weight loss,you would have to eat that diet the rest of your life.This is true for weight watchers and south beach,and I think it's very impossible to eat these diets the rest of your life.I'm starting to lose weight now,I'm not dieting,I cut out having a second serving and I get active all the time.I can't eat a certain weight loss diet.I also cut out junk food.

Count the calories as you eat. It’s a good idea to have an idea of the calories that most food items have. If it is a packed thing then the label is sure to have the calories that the substance has.

I would forget the word "diet" even exists. People usually fail at diets because they're trying to hard to restrict themselves, end up being deprived, and therefore end up overeating ANYWAY and ruining their diet (and probably GAINING weight). They say only 10% of diets result in long-term weight loss. I believe it. Don't diet. Don't count calories. Just eat healthy. Eat three meals a day, two snacks, and drink LOTS of water. Cut out soda and minimize your junk food intake. Exercise for 45 minutes to an hour a day, preferably cardio workouts. Strength train 2 times a week (to build muscle mass). And this works for a lot of people. Diets fail, I think, because people TRY to restrict themselves too much, or because it's a 'crash' diet, essentially made for short-term weight loss. What people need to realize is that they just need to change the way they look at healthy eating in general: it should be a life-long commitment to be good to your body. As with exercising.
