I have a very negative view of traditional dieting, and here's the reason. A diet is a temporary restriction of what you normally do. After a goal is achieved, most people tend to drift back to their typical habits. I have two pieces of advice that I think are absolutely foolproof, and don't require any traditional dieting. Firstly, the easy one, don't keep any snack foods in the house. Snack foods are called snack foods because you eat them between meals, and they're essentially irresistible if you have them on hand (including soda); who can not eat a bowl of ice cream or a few cookies when they're there for the taking? If you don't buy it, you won't miss it after a couple weeks when it becomes the new normal for you.
