Dieting

Are you confused diet-wise?  Most of us are…and if you noticed, I said “us.”  There are so many different diets out there and different ones work for different people.

Which ones have you tried?  I have tried Atkins, Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Paleo and am now about to try the 80/10/10.  I can tell you that I have lost weight with every one that I have tried, but still have not found one that I would stick to for life.  I’m hoping that this latest one will do the trick.
The 80/10/10 (80% carbohydrates, 10% proteins, 10% fats) diet looks similar to the lifestyle I have now adopted – eat a plant-based diet and stick with that permanently.  Not sure if I can do raw with some vegetables though.  Even nuking some of my veges a tad bit is what would work for me.
I can eat fruits all day long.  Most people can, I believe.  Being a Caribbean native where there was a plethora of fruits, there were days when all I ate were fruits – for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks!  Now for vegetables – somewhat the same except that they would probably go alongside a meal.  I was a skinny girl growing up as a result of this way of eating.
Now as a mature 50-plus adult, I’m heading back into that same direction.  It worked back then and I’m sure it will work now.
How about you? Which ones have you tried?  Which ones worked?
