I'm counting calories and increasing exercise. That is the only hting that has ever worked long term for me. I've tried most of the fad diets -- and I lose -- and I gain with interest. Learning to eat well for life and getting active are my goals. I find when I over do it I can get back on track much easier than on a fad diet.

Everyone needs to find what works for them. I need to journal and weight daily. I do set two days a week that I record my weight so I don't have to record all the ups and downs. When i stop journaling I fall back into bad habits.

I find no increase in appetite with increased activity - in fact usually the opposite. And I like the reward of being able to journal the calories used up.

Using the forums also helps keep me motivated.

Good luck whichever diet you choose.
