Tired of Thinking About Weight Loss and Diets?

Aug 8, 2008
We all have them, those skinny little mini friends who don't weigh more than a minute and who look great no matter what they put on. And then there we are in our ever tightening cloths, nibbling away at carrots, Melba toast and cottage cheese while we watch the numbers climb on our scales. I'm so sick of thinking about weight loss and diets.

I have 5 friends who seem to be able to effortlessly stay in a size 5/7 and still eat what ever they like. It's not fair. Oh, they'll give lip service to cutting back and watching their weight, but I rarely see them actually do it. Now admittedly, one of my friends spends more time entertaining everyone rather than eating the food on her plate, but another of them has a very healthy appetite.

Why were they so blessed and people like me left with all the fat genes? I go on the same diets, do the same things and still can't seem to arrive at a desirable weight.

Over the years I've probably tried every diet known to humankind and here I am still thinking about weight loss and diets. So I decided I'd approach this problem as I would any other and rationally solve it.

First, what ever the answer to my dilemma is, it has to be for a lifetime. I've found success on diets before - (I'm a world famous yo-yo dieter) - but I don't want to go to all the trouble of losing the weight if I'm going to put it all back on, plus 5 pounds, as soon as I reach my goal weight. I have to be able to maintain the behavior for the rest of my life.

The second point I had to get through my thick scull was different body types will react differently to any given diet. So if my friend starts counting calories and cutting fat from her diet and loses weight, it doesn't necessarily mean I will. Oh, I might force myself to stick to her perfect diet for a while and sooner or later I'd lose weight, but if it's the wrong diet for me, I may be miserable, hungry, grouchy and/or moody the whole time.

That's no way to live! You can't live the rest of your life feeling that way. So, I had to find a diet that would allow me to lose the weight, was something I could live with for the rest of my life, and something that wouldn't leave me feeling cranky and out of sorts all the time.

What makes some diets work beautifully for some, while for others it is just a not so subtle form of torture? The answer has to do with body types and ancestry.

Some bodies need more carbohydrates and less protein to flourish, while others need more protein but fewer carbohydrates. Why do some bodies develop high blood pressure and diabetes while others don't? Why does one person gain weight in the belly while another applies their fat directly to the hips. It's in your genetic makeup. You have to find the type diet right for your body type before you'll ever grow naturally thin.
