The simple way to lose weight is with a sensible low carb diet. The kind of diet plan that becomes a way of eating for life, not just something to do till your next vacation. I don’t think you need to be too regimented, counting carbs, calories or fat content. But you do need a sensible approach to eating, and to really think about why you are in a position of needing to lose weight today.

The perfect diet is one that can become a life-time way of eating, rather than a short-term quick-fix solution. That’s where many low fat diets fall down. They leave most of us hungry, and do not work as diets you might want to follow after you’ve lost the weight too. Now you might very well enjoy celery and not much else, in which case low-fat might be the perfect choice for you. Personally I like a little more variety at meal-time, which is why I’ve been following a simple low carb diet plan. It began with the Slow Carb Diet and ended up being My Low Carb Diet (not patented obviously! ;) )

It’s simple, easy to followvery flexible and doesn’t involve having to count things (who wants to monitor their food continually?). It allows me to still enjoy cooking (when I’m in the mood) and eating, and it means I don’t have to sacrifice any of the food I enjoy. Excellent!

So let’s get on with it then…

Hopefully the articles here will help you lose weight in a manageable, and easy to do way. This is dieting for people who enjoy good food, and don’t want to be a slave to pre-packaged crap. You can see the original diet plan via the link at the top of the page. But don’t forget to be sensible, and flexible. The main problem with so much diet information is that there is no one size fits all. You might need to tweak things a little, and you will need to take into account your eating habits, your weaknesses, and your own tastes of course. But start out following the rules for a few weeks at least to avoid your old habits and kick-start a new way of eating.
