The "anti diet" Diet

If there's a diet out there that I haven't already tried then I don't know what it is and I don't think I want to know. I'm fed up with all of them. I've never been very disciplined, which is what led me to these diets in the first place but after several years with varying degrees of success I have found freedom in winging it. It always seemed to me that whatever the diet was, the principles were pretty much the same: eat lean protiens, eat more veggies, eat smaller portions, and exercise. I'm still doing that but what I am no longer doing is driving myself crazy over it.

Here, here! Following a strict diet only made me think about food. Even when I wasn't hungry. I'm still a member of WW but I don't go for the meetings and I don't track my points. I just go for the weigh ins. That way I don't need to keep a scale in my house but I'm still accountable.

This is exactly why I came here. I'm sick of all these companies making money off of people who are trying to lose weight. You don't need to buy their meals or pay for memberships or go hire a trainer. It's not rocket science and the information you need is available on the internet for FREE. I take part in the challenges here so that there is some accountability and that's something I am willing to pay for because it's the only thing that I really struggle with. Plus, I get all the support I need and I have the chance to win back any money that I do wager so ultimately it's down to me if I want to succeed.

This sounds a lot like intuitive eating which is considered by some to be a diet in its own way. I've been doing it for over a year now and have lost 23lbs but more important for me is the fact that I stopped thinking about food every waking minute!

I've heard that Intuitive Eating is good for maintenance but not so good for losing weight so I'm really encouraged by your story. Thanks for sharing!
