    I'm much happier eating 100-200 calories every 2 hours, with a larger dinner, than 3 meals a day. It works for me.

    I much prefer a work environment where I can choose how to do my job, including eating at my workspace, than being micro-managed, You must eat now in the breakroom, how ridiculous.
  • I am actually fairly happy about eating the same food every day. Takes the guesswork out of it.
  • Some great points in this article. I question the suggestion about smaller meals, 5-6 per day. A recent study has shown that subjects eating multiple, smaller meals have no greater success in losing weight than those eating three full size meals. I hope sparkpeople continues to base their content on proven or widely accepted research and steers clear of taking sides on debatable subjects.
  • Like Jshare this came at a good time for me. I have lost 28 kilos and have 2 more to lose to reach my goal. I am finding it a real struggle to shift the last of the weight and really feel like I have been doing this diet forever. I am following the Dukan plan which is very restrictive. I think it's time for a change whilst not returning to my old eating habits.

    Articles like this help keep me focused on the lifestyle issue, not the diet route. Thanks Liz!!!

    I found that trying to "Diet" only led to frustration for me. I found my answer in a book by Jorge Cruise called the "Belly Fat Cure". His program suggests that you watch your sugar intake and keep it @ 15 grams of sugar or less a day and to keep your carbs @ 120 grams a day. His book offers many food items that are filling while staying within the limits of the sugar and carb intake. It's not a diet but a life style change for me. As a result of following his sugar/carb plan I have lost 25 lbs and 3.5 inches off of my waist.
  • I have lost some weight but I suspect the next 3 weeks will be a real test for me as we are going on a 3 week long vacation. Please wish me luck as I absolutely must avoid fats and sweets to retain my weight loss success! Thanks for the support that is always available on Spark People!!!

    First off let me say I train people to get fit! One of the first things they ask me is what kind of a diet should I go on so I can look like you. My response always "DIET" is an immediate failure word! You must do a life style change with your eating habits! That means CLEAN EATING for the rest of your life. Lean protien,complex carbs,fruits veggies. Remember it takes two-eating and exercise! CALORIES IN-CALORIES OUT!! I have many success stories with clients who finally got it! Alife style change not a diet!!!
