You’ve decided to lose weight. Great news! Now it’s time to choose the diet that will work for you. I’m not going to use this blog to promote one diet over another. That’s a decision you have to make, preferably with your doctor’s help.  Do you choose a diet that allows you to eat canadian bacon and eggs? Or do you prefer a diet that stresses fruits and veggies?

Personally, I had good results with Weight Watchers. This diet allows you to choose from several food groups….even sugary treats….as long as you keep to the daily “point” total.  I was able to reach my weight goal, even though I often added frozen fudge bars to my daily total. Those frozen goodies are too good to avoid, especially after a hard day at work.

If you’re deciding which diet plan to follow, check out the following from Webmd. You’ll find a lot of choices:

If you’re considering starting a professional or commercial weight loss program, Webmd says make sure it’s safe and that it promotes slow, steady weight loss:

Remember to include exercise.  Again, it’s a good idea to see your doctor before starting a diet, exercise or weight loss routine.
