People looking to shed the pounds seem to be bombarded with new and old diet strategies.

Some promise quick and easy weight loss, while others require a more long-term commitment and lifestyle change.

The word "plan" comes to mind when it comes to how I do what I do (23 pounds down). I prepare in advance what foods I want or need. Every week I go through the sale fliers, the coupons, my cookbooks, recipes to try, and I work out in advance how to save time and money and avoid waste (and waist). I have no set patterns for what I buy or cook or eat. I believe in variety! I think that planning (usually writing) is the best way to achieve any goal you may have.

I have an eating program. I do not diet. My program has successfully slimmed me down 50 lbs and got me off all meds. Last A1C was 5.5. That number shows the success of what I do.

If it promises anything quick, fast and easy...it is off my list. Actually, I very much agree with Harlen. DIET is a four letter word. We really have to look at our life style and change that. Diet is part of it, but getting together with a nutritionist or diabetic educator will teach you how to make wise choices that can go with you anywhere and stay with you for life. That is what you want. It is the only thing that works for me.
