Thanks for your kind words
I think calorie restriction is a diet, its a low cal diet. Thats basically what I did, reduced calories and whole foods. Its not like a will restrict calories forever, so it is something temporary.
Diets get a bad rap because of the fad diets out there. And most of those dieters who opt for the fad diets just want quick fixes not an overhaul of their lifestyle, and that is why I think they ultimately do not succeed.
I do agree that those fad diets are a waste of time, but I don't think we should let words have so much power over our thinking.
