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.

I agree as said earlier that sticking to a strict regimen is not the way to go for most. I learned that "cheat meals and days" are not as they sound.

Lost 20 pounds in 3 months last year. ONe of the biggest things I attribute it to is Calorie Cycling which includes sprinkling in high calories meals and days inbetween your low calorie diet.

I attribute my success to it.

In order to have a good diet one must have a good lifestyle. One must be conscious of what to eat but not to the extent of depriving yourself. As for me, checking for the nutrition facts for that particular food is very important to me.

Mmmmh ...
Although it is hard to start and maintain a healthy diet, nothing is impossible if you really want to achieve a healthy mind and body .And we can combine healthy diet with you lifestyle .
Experts say that though basic principle of healthy diet is simple, most people are having a hard time sticking to it. Major reasons may include a super busy lifestyle, work that causes a lot of stress or even an environment that is not conducive to having a healthy diet.

Another issue I don't see raised here is that food that is good for you is often more expensive than junk. When I was young and single and broke, I could live for a week on well under $10 if I ate a lot of ramen noodles and cabbage. Up that to fresh spinach and baby greens, chicken breast meat, and toss in some fresh fruit and it can cost you that much per day. Fast food is one heck of a lot cheaper than a good quality restaurant. THEN if you're a person who truly believes in organics and such, up it a little more. Nowadays I can afford to buy the healthy choices, and my husband encourages me to do so (the fridge is full of fruit and vegs), but my grocery bills would apall some people.

Exactly. The sign outside McDonalds is advertising 50 McNuggets for 9.99. It would be really hard to beat that on price alone.
