    Weight watchers for me! I’ve lost 8 lbs in 5 weeks, and it doesn’t feel like a diet at all, I eat whatever I want just in moderation. It’s an eye opening “diet” when you start calculating points for foods you didn’t think twice about previously. Some stuff will surprise you how bad it is!

    I don’t pay too much attention to way I eat. I work and live in a city so for lunch its usually half a sandwich and a pc of fruit or I scratch that and have a salad of some sort.  About a month before our wedding Darling Husband and I did a crash diet: Protein Only.  No carbs, sodium, sugars, soda – – It was fantastic and as a result we totally watch what we eat.  We aren’t watching on purpose we’re just more aware of our intake, if you know what I mean.  As a result it has made us both feel A LOT better about ourselves Laughing

    I don’t eat any meat that comes from mammals, (poultry and seafood only).  Also I try to keep to a low calorie and low fat diet.  I keep a food journal and enter everything I eat and have a calorie range I try to stay under.  I also avoid fast food and junk food, (except ice cream which is my arch nemesis)

    Low fat, low calorie, and low carb as much as possible.

    Mine would be low calorie, but I generally like to think of it more as portion control and choosing healthier (lower calorie, lower fat, etc) options.

    Mostly not paying attention/monitoring what I eat.  I have had problems with being too controlling about what I eat in the past, so I try to subscribe to Intuitive Eating… basically eating when I am hungry, stopping when I am full, being especially careful NOT to worry about what is “good” and “bad,” but what makes my body feel good. 

    What I really love is that I can actually tell when I need more protein, when I need carbs, when I need veggies or whatever, and when I get cravings they’re usually for really healthy things.  I do tend to mostly eat “real food” but just because that’s what I like.  I also tend to eat a fairly high calorie diet that is a little carb heavy, just because that’s what my body runs best on.

    I usually try to eat smaller portions of a normal square meal.  I try to get all my food groups in and try to avoid saturated and trans fats.  It’s not always possible with my schedule, but I try.

    A balanced diet. I eat what I want but don’t go overboard with things like chocolate etc.

    My goal is just to make sure I eat a few veggies every day, haha, and I make a point of eating a good amount of fiber (I love me some Fiber One cereal and granola bars!), and try not to eat more than one sweet a day (sugar free chocolate pudding, or a piece of a rolo, something like that).

    We’re not the healthiest people in the world, but I honestly know I wouldn’t be very happy if I spent all my time obsessing over what I’m eating (and knowing my own personality, it WOULD be obsessing). 🙂

    WW–which IS a lifestyle and NOT a diet 🙂 (and no, I didn’t just drink the kool-aid)

    But while on WW, I generally avoid processed foods, refined sugars, and refined carbs. Darling Husband is a vegetarian so I don’t eat too much meat by default, but I LOVE fish, so I eat that a couple times a week. I’m not a saint–I love cheese and I do allow myself to have ice-cream maybe once a week or so and Darling Husband and I have pasta/pizza night once a week, but I do believe in clean eating and my rule (which I adhere to 90% of the time; 10% reserved for PMS cheetos) is that if something I didn’t make myself has more than 5 ingredients or ingredients I can’t pronounce, I don’t eat it.

    And I KICKED my soda addiction about a year ago and I am SO PROUD of that!

    I pretty much follow the “I’m going to eat whatever the hell I want” diet which is a major issue since I so desperately want to loose weight for our wedding. For some reason, I just haven’t been inspired.
