Some days I think my head is going to explode when I read about all the various diets that are supposed to help you lose weight. There's Weight Watchers, South Beach, Atkins, Paleo, Nutri Systems, Vegetarian, Vegan, Mediterranean, etc.... They'll all help you if you buy the book, attend the costly meetings, or buy the food.
You can eat fruits on some, but not on others. Bread on some, not on others. Dairy on some, not on others. Bacon on some, not on others. You get the idea.
A doctor even told me it doesn't really matter what you do as long as you stick with it. So that's the key? Pick something you can stick with?
Sounds simple as long as I never want to eat bread again. Or never want another hamburger. Or always want to count points/calories. Only want eggs. Give up everything but red wine.
It's all enough to make me want to biggie size my french fries.
