Trying hard with minimal to no results
So in about 4 weeks time you've gone from Calorie counting, to South beach phase 1 to South beach phase 2. This seems like you are being impatient. Why are you switching so frequently? Do you not like the dieting?
If you go back to just counting calories, it will work. It is impossible for it not to work if you count everything and stay under. But you need to stay at it. Weigh yourself every other day at the same time of day. Use a digital scale to see changes of. 1 pounds. Get a digital scale that also measures water% muscle % and fat%. You may be losing fat but have excess water. If you don't measure it, how will you know?
Also almost every reply had great information, the community here is very good. Get involved and stay involved. Join a challenge with other members. But as with anything if you don't stay at it it wont pay off like you hoped.

How long does it take?
I did Atkins in the past, and it worked well for short term weight loss. You should see quick weight loss the first week or so, then nothing for a bit, then a steady decrease. Don't let the week 2 plateau bum you out.

It's really quite simple, but far from easy.
Count your calories. That's it.
Nobody has to tell you what to eat, or when to eat, or exercise. Count what you put in your mouth. Do it for a month. I dare you. You'll notice that after a few days you'll start to see how many calories you're putting in. Get a base line of how many calories your body burns in a day. (Calorie Counter for smart phones works good) it's probably in the neighborhood of 2000 calories. Stay under that.
If you're getting hungry, you're eating the wrong kind of calories.
You have 2,000 calories to spend a day, use them how you want, but don't go over. So you want that donut? yeah, it's 1200. Is it worth missing breakfast and lunch for? Your call. Your diet.
