Most can only deprive themselves for so long before they crash and burn.
The last time that I took the weight off, I too swore that it would never come back. Well guess what? It came back. I got focused and dieted with willpower to spare, I ate only 1500 calories a day period, if I was out of calories, I was done eating for a day. I didn't learn a new way of eating just a way of losing weight, and when I reached my weight goal, I rewarded myself and old habits slowly came back, and so did the weight.
I don't think that I could live my whole life on that diet, it would be too hard.
