    I follow the 80/20 diet.  80% of the tine I eat nutritious food (fresh fruit and veggies, lean meats,seafood that’s not fried, snacks that don’t come from a vending machine) and 20% of the time I eat fried food and drink beer.  I do count my calories.  I’m at a healthy weight for my height (168lbs and 5″10) and I don’t really care to get thinner or spend too much of my day worrying about what I eat.  Life’s too short.

    brideandblue :  I’ve been doing it for just over 3 months and I like it. I basically just skip breakfast 6 days a week and the have one cheat day.

    its easy and I don’t have to think about it.  It is slow going, but I have no deadline.  I’ve lost around 7 lbs in 3 months.

    brideandblue :  I count my calories so.i can see if it gets out of hand and adjust.  However,  there are a few days a year I don’t track  (like holidays)  I’m not going to pack on 20 lbs because I eat whatever I want on Thanksgiving.   (Just like I won’t lose 20 lbs in one day because I eat all low calorie foods for one day)  it’s all about balance and it’s been working for 5+ years now.

    Eta: I’m also fairly active.   I ditch the car as soon as I’m out of work and bike and walk everywhere and I lift weights.  (Although the lifting is on hiatus due to an injury) so I’m never really worried about eating too much because my physical activity seems to balance it all out)

    I eat pescatarian (no meat or poultry but not vegetarian as I eat seafood). I was vegetarian for several months- and have cooked vegetarian meals for family members for ages- but I found I was eating too much carbs and cheese (even with all the yummy veggie options out there, like Yves line), so I added seafood back in. I also do intermittent fasting as I tend to put weight on easily if I don’t watch it, despite being active. I try to eat fresh foods rather than processed but this isn’t strict and I try to watch salt and sugar intake (which is easier with fresh foods). My downfall is Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi which I know perfectly well is no good for me but am still clinging to and need to at least cut down.

    brideandblue :  Defintiely, there are also a lot more veggie options out there than there used to be. If you found it hard to stick to being a vegetarian, maybe you could aim instead for eating vegetarian dinners most nights and having a ‘meat day’- I have a close relative who does this and it works really well for her.

    I don’t diet, but I do watch what I eat (for health reasons, mainly hereditary cholesterol). 

    I limit cheese, ice cream, meat, fried foods, baked goods, chips, etc. I eat these things sometimes, but you know, moderation!

    I try to eat more legumes, beans, nuts, fruits, etc. I also indulge in dark (80%) chocolate. 

    I’m not the best at including grains in my diet. I mostly go for white rice/pasta but I do buy whole grain/wheat bread. 

    I’m not thin, I’m slightly overweight. I do this to feel healthy and worry less about my health. I’m comfortable with my body type.
