So, since just "watching what I eat" doesn't seem to be working for me maybe you can help. I have a 14 month old baby and haven't lost a lb. since coming home with baby. Any specific diet that I should try? I am failing when left to my own devices and can't do the Jenny Craig thing (again) Maybe Weight Watchers is for me? Any advice on a plan that takes into account that I am an emotional night time carb eating fool?

I have been on Fat Smash for 10 days, and have lost 7 lbs as of yesterday. I haven't suffered at all, and you can eat all the fruits and veggies you want. The first Phase, Detox (don't be alarmed - it's nothing weird!) you basically eat vegetarian. I haven't been hungry, have a healthy snack in the evening, and have lost weight! I highly recommend it.

When followed exactly as instructed, they pretty much all work. It's more a question of what you like. For instance, if you like pasta then Atkins may not be the way to go. If you enjoy meat then Ornish isn't for you. They pretty much all work, it's just a matter of what you will enjoy and stick with long enough to reach your goals.

I like the principals of the Paleo Diet... Essentially eat what a cave man did... So all the lean meats, seafood, veggies (limited potatoes and corn) and fruits as you want, no quantity restrictions... No dairy, legumes or grains and severally restrict saturated fat.
