I focus my eating on these points, which the poster above articulates nicely:
Do I like eating this? Does it make me feel full?
Does it make my body feel good and give me enough energy?
Does it have any adverse effects, eg dehydration, high cholesterol, etc.?
Does it promote health through macronutrients, vitamins, etc.?
Personally, I don't feel that certain diets do this. I am not saying my diet (moderate carbs, lots of fruit/veg/lean protein, lots of whoe foods) is the only right way, but I have read about long-term negative health effects of diets that are good at making the scale drop quickly but not good for long-term weight maintenance or health..
My goal is long-term health. Yes, I would like to lose weight faster, but I have to relearn my whole lifestyle if I have any hope of keeping weight off, which is why I chose the slower route of fewer calories, more exercise (rather than pills, programs, fasts, rules or memberships). I try to get 40g fat, 80g protein and 120g carbs, though I have had a few days hitting 200g carbs. Regardless, I keep my focus on eating good food (less refined and processed) and staying at 1300-1500 kcal/day.
I hope that helps. And we ALWAYS try to have respectful dialog and encourage each other here at FatSecret, so whatever your choose, you can count on my support and kindness.
I am not losing weight. I am gaining health. Since April 24, 2012:

Absolutely and filled with GOOD fats! But they are also high calorie so you have to limit portion sizes. I usually go with 1/4 - 1/3 of an avacado per serving (like on a salad, sliced on a turkey san ...

It depends what eating plan you are on. You are posting this in the Atkins thread, so if you're in induction, 1 8oz container of plain yoghurt is 16 carbs, doesn't leave much room for your v ...
