What is your eating style? Do you follow one of the popular diet plans?

What is your eating style?  Do you follow one of the popular diet plans?

If you’re looking to eat healthy or lose weight in the new year, there are a lot of diet plans out there to choose from.  But how do you know which plan is best for you?  I’m not a fan of fad diets – Even when they work, they are often an unhealthy choice and any weight lost is usually quickly gained back.  But there are diet plans geared towards healthy eating and healthy weight loss.  Maybe you’re already following one.

In this post I thought we could take a look at some of the diet plans that also focus on healthy eating.  Because, in the long run, changing unhealthy eating habits to healthy ones is the only way to lose weight and keep it off.

Kirstie Alley on Oprah Talking About Her Weight Gain

Kirstie Alley on Oprah Talking About Her Weight Gain

Did you see Kirstie Alley on Oprah?  She was on to talk about her weight gain, and her desire to develop her own weight loss program.   The interview wasn’t at all what I expected.  She talked to Oprah about spending this past year researching weight loss (for her soon to be announced weight loss program), while gaining even more weight than she had lost on Jenny Craig.  It was a bit odd.

One of the biggest questions I got from my post on Valerie Bertinelli’s recent weight loss, was about whether or not she will be able to keep it off once she stops the Jenny Craig diet.  It seems that if Kirstie Alley is any example, the answer might be no.

What do you think?

I’ve known for a while now that Kirstie Alley had gained back all of the weight she lost on the Jenny Craig diet, and I have no judgment of her about that.   After all, most of us spend a good portion of our lives gaining, losing, and gaining again.  I’m no exception.  I just don’t understand why she didn’t seem to make any attempt at all to maintain her weight loss?  Even moving all of her high-end exercise equipment to her garage.  Why?   She obviously had the means to hire people to cook healthy meals for her, or trainers to work-out with her.  Why didn’t she?  I think I could understand a little better if she wasn’t also claiming to be developing her own weight loss program.  I just don’t get it.
