I have been dieting for 15 years now and I can’t stop. I’ve tried every diet there is and, even though not even one has worked, I just can’t stop. I keep telling myself that one should work, so I try another and another. How can I stop? Please help!

Some people are addicted to chocolate and some to hot dogs. Addictions are part of our life, you just have to know how to act when you’ve reached the bottom. The good thing is that you have acknowledged the fact it’s not doing you any good and you’re asking for help. These are the most important steps. What you need to understand is that diets are not supposed to take over your life. A diet is just a guide that helps you improve your well-being and teach you about healthy eating habits. Listen to your body and give it the supplies it needs in order to work properly.
Eating healthy is always an excellent diet. Add exercise to that and you will feel the results. Use portion control or count your calories, whichever method is more comfortable for you. You can find lots of useful articles about weight loss and good advice at – for free. You can also find there a menu planner that makes it easier for you to calculate, in calories, what you eat. This way you can keep track of what you eat, without having to follow a strict diet.

My advice is to stop trying diet after diet and stick to a healthy life style. You can also check out this website:

I was like you, trying every diet out there.
I am over 50 and its even harder to lose weight.
I tried Isagenix and lost 19lbs and 22' in a short amount of time.
Some of the other benefits I got with Isagenix were, more energy, better sleep , thinking clearer and feeling like I did in my 20's.

Because this is a 'superfood' not a diet my body is now getting what it needs to be healthy again.

Nutritional cleansing ,cleanses the inside and shows up on the outside and I love it!

You should try and weigh in once a week, your body goes up and down in a day so you don't actually get the full picture. I tossed my scales so I could not weigh daily and go to a slimming club purely ...

I have to agree with gardengranny, the Doc should be the one telling you if you are ok to continue or stop taking a medication. You could end up doing more harm than good.
