When can we stop dieting and just be "normal"? It's a sad state to me that most people that are overweight, me included, are constantly dieting. And we have all tried every one out there just about. Does it just seem paranoid that perhaps all of these diet experts trying to sell us the newest, latest, fastest, and easiest way to lose weight are not really trying to help us lose weight, just enough to give them more money? If we were all able to lose weight, and keep it off, the diet plans, books, videos, pharmaceutical companies, and self help gurus would be out of business. It is so hard to navigate which is the best way for each of us. It can't be as simple as "eat right." We've got good carbs, bad carbs, poly-,saturated-,unsaturated-, trans-fats, cholesterol, triglycerides, calories, fiber, protein, sugars, etc. The list is endless. And every diet out there is based on cutting out some of these. This one: reduce your calories. That one: eat no carbs. This one is high fiber, high protein. It is so completely confusing you just decide to eat whatever, because how can count it anyway? Even when you hate exercise, it is easier to find a routine than decide what to eat every single day, and you have to eat. I'm grateful for this site, that it is free, and it's a start!
