I know, I know. You've tried dozens of diets and you still aren't happy with the way you look. Let's face it... you probably aren't following the right kind of diet for your personal eating habits. Which diet will actually work for you?

  • 1
    What's the biggest downfall of your eating habits right now?
    Sweet treats.
    I'm not sure what's really healthy... so I just grab whatever sounds good.
    Nothing... I eat a very balanced, moderate diet!
    It seems to take a ton of food to fill me up... I'm always hungry, even after a lot of calories.
    Just general junk food... everything I eat comes out of a cardboard box!

    Which line of faulty reasoning has caused to to spin out of control?
    "I'm not sure if I should eat the low-carb food, the low-fat food, or the low-calorie food... what a headache!"
    None... I'm pretty good about eating what I should.
    "Hey, these are the 'light' potato chips, so they must be okay"
    "I'm still hungry, so I should have seconds"
    "Just one bite won't hurt!"

    Which diet have you already failed at?
    Cutting portions... I don't want to starve myself!
    Low-fat diets. Eating that cardboard makes me miserable!
    All of them! Even when I follow all the instructions, I never seem to get results!
    Calorie-counting... it's too much work!
    Um, I guess switching from hot pockets to lean pockets didn't really help...

    What would the ideal diet for you be like?
    Not having to count anything or figure it out... it's too much work and too confusing!
    I don't care what I have to eat or not eat... I just want it to work!
    I have to be able to eat rich foods that I love... and be able to eat out and know which foods are okay and which aren't.
    Being able to eat as much as I want and not go hungry!
    Something with lots of variety that would allow me to cook and try new things.

    It's dinner time on your new diet. Which scenario sounds most appealing?
    Pizza, damn it.
    I get to include foods that I considered "bad" on another diet... like sour cream or avocado, maybe.
    A four course meal.
    I already have my planned dinner written out, with an easy to follow recipe.
    I can eat a well-rounded meal without having to cut out any food groups.
  • 6
    Which diet would you never try?
    A low-carb diet. Who can eat that heavy stuff?
    Anything complicated... I don't want each meal to be a battle of numbers!
    A vegetarian one--boring and bland!
    Anything gimmicky... after all, diets are supposed to promote health, too!
    Anything with too many "do's" and "don'ts"... after all, you're supposed to enjoy eating!

    Congratulations! You have successfully stuck to your diet... er, lifestyle change for a whole year now. Other than seeing the number drop on the scale, what have been some positive side effects?
    I've tried new recipes, learned about portion size, and now know what I can and can't eat... without having to tally everything on a calculator!
    My friends and family have all been impressed and approved of the changes I've made.
    I no longer even crave or desire the starchy or sugary junk I was once addicted to.
    I'm more active and more toned than ever!
    I've been able to snack all day and eat until totally full. I haven't felt hungry at all!

    Which diet downfall could you easily cope with?
    Friends and family members giving me a hard time about my food choices. I don't need them to tell me what's healthy!
    Limiting calorie-dense foods like beef.
    A little less convenience. I don't mind preparing food myself.
    A set weekly eating plan... as long as I have some say in what's on it.
    Waking up earlier... to jog off yesterday's Fritos.

    You're eating out. Which sounds most appealing?
    A large salad with lots of fresh veggies, topped with olive oil and vinegar.
    A turkey sub on whole wheat bread and an oatmeal cookie.
    Chicken fettucini alfredo... after all, you did run 15 miles this morning.
    Shrimp wrapped in bacon, then a big, juicy steak with some butter-topped asparagus on the side.
    A cup of broth based soup to start with, then a garden salad in low-fat dressing followed by a generous serving of chicken and vegetables. Plus some fresh berries for dessert.

    You're with a group of strangers who think dieting to lose weight is absurd. You decide to lie and tell them that...
    No need to say anything... pass the fried chicken, please!
    You just don't care for "heavy" foods.
    Your doctor gave you a set meal list to help lower your (blood pressure, cholesterol, whatever)
    You have unstable blood sugar, and therefore must avoid sugar and white flour.
    You think chemicals in packaged foods are dangerous.

    The best compliment you could from a friend who knows all about your diet plan is...
    I'm amazed that you can eat so much and be so thin!
    You've sure worked hard for your results!
    Wow, everything you eat is so... healthy!
    I can't believe how all the weight really came off your stomach and midsection!
    It's great that you've adopted such a moderate approach!

    You don't care what anyone says, you know that...
    You have to eat plenty of food to feel full.
    You CAN eat Twinkies... as long as you them it off!
    Those pre-packed "diet foods" are crapola.
    Having a set plan and sticking to it works.
    Healthy fats in eggs, fish, and avocados are NOT the enemy.
