  1. DIetsLet’s be honest: fad diets never work. If you’re looking to lose weight and keep it off, these five diets – lifestyle changes, rather – are the most fool proof ways to lose the weight and keep it off.

    Cutting Complex Carbohydrates

    Those complex carbohydrates are the biggest diet thwarters. Chow down on a bagel for breakfast, a burger for lunch, and a pizza for dinner with a beer or a few glasses of wine and you’ve completed what they like to call it as a "carbo-load." Cutting out your complex carbohydrates including breads, refined sugars, candy, grains (yes, even whole grains), and alcohol will help you lose weight quickly. This diet is harder to stick to because complex carbs are a way of life. You can still eat fruit or order your meals "protein style" whenever you go out. It’s all about the dedication.

    Jenny Craig

    Jenny Craig is infamous for helping women make the lifestyle changing choices to lose weight. With a consultant and weigh-ins, Jenny Craig can really help you stay on track. Jenny Craig’s secret is that you eat every few hours to keep your metabolism high. You eat the food that they give you throughout the day. It’s a great way for people to lose weight if you’re too busy to discipline yourself.

    Everything in Moderation

    This lifestyle change really requires a lot of self-discipline. If you don’t want to count calories, and don’t want to join a weight loss program or cut out an entire food group, just focus on everything in moderation. If you want that piece of cake, eat 1/4 of it followed with a big glass of water. If you want that bready sandwich, remove one of the slices of bread, kick off the mayo, and eat it as an opened faced sandwich. Little lifestyle changes will make a difference.

    Weight Watchers

    Weight Watchers is an "easy" way to lose weight because it turns calories and fiber into an easy points system. It also encourages you to drink a lot of water and get at least 20 minutes of exercise daily. The hardest part about Weight Watches is that you need to document everything – which on the other hand creates accountability. Weekly meetings also make it easier because you can weigh yourself weekly, and have the support of a group.

    Counting Calories

    The most efficient way to lose weight is to cut calories. There are 3,500 calories in a pound, so if you cut 3,500 calories per week you will lose a pound per week. Say you eat a 2,000 calorie diet normally – if you cut 500 calories a day for 7 days a week, you will lose 3,500 calories per week. If you eat a 1,700 calorie diet normally, you need to cut it down to 1,200 calories to lose the weight. There are plenty of mobile apps that can help you count calories. You’ll be surprised how many calories are in things we take for granted like oil and butter. You’ll learn what’s healthy, and what you need to moderate.
