What are your thoughts on dieting?
Have you ever found a diet that truly works?
I don't believe in diets. In my opinion it is better to educate on how you eat and do everything yet, but not keeping a diet. Because after finishing a diet you will go back to old rabbits and in the end you gain nothing. But by re-educating yourself on how you eat, on how you think on food, on what to eat, I think you can improve your health and also the happiness on your life. I also think, that people who go on diets, are afraid to admit a change in your life. Also currently the term diet is very used, and many times it does more harm than good.
The term "diet" implies a short-term, temporary fix for an ongoing problem. Just as kknde says in the first comment, after the diet is over most people revert to the old habits that caused the problem which does no good. The diet that truly works is correcting the lifestyle, and that includes the food, the activities and the attitude.
Over the last year and a half, I lost 50 pounds following two different diets, a calorie counting one using the app MyFitnessPal and a program which teaches you how to eat what your body reallly needs called Naturally Slim. I've written about both of these in Hubs. My work (large private University) is sponsoring Naturally Slim (online program) and so I am watching many of my friends and co-workers as we go through the program. It works because it teaches you how to set your emotional, physical and mental programing to that of a normal sized person (the right weight for your body). The statistics of the program (about 1500 people so far) show an average 10-13 pound loss over a 10 week period, and the experience of the people I know personally (as well as my own experience) shows that if you continue to follow the principles of the program you can get whatever amount of weight you want off and not have to worry about gaining it again. Basically, it works because of what some of the other people have answered. It teaches you not to count calories, but how to train your mind to listen to your body and only eat what you need.
I think it's best to just treat your body well. Drinking lots of water, eating clean and whole foods, getting good exercise, and enough sleep is the key in my opinion. Human bodies are amazing and should be treated the way they deserve to be.

In the last few years, low carb diets seem to have become the "go-to" diet, especially for those looking to lose weight quickly. I'm thinking of reducing my carbs a little, but for me it's not a huge change - I simply want to try to eat more whole grains and pulses and introduce some more...

Would you use the K-E Diet that is also called the feeding tube diet?I'm researching this diet to write a hub and wondered how many people would pay $1499 to feed themselves through a tube for 10 days to lose 10 to 20 pounds. It isn't a diet that I would considered using myself even if it...
