Many people need to lose weight, and lots of them are always on the look out for diets that work. It’s not really difficult to find diets that work, but finding a diet a person can stick to is the issue. The diet industry is huge. Between books, diet food programs, trainers and nutritionists, spas, and all the other parts of the health and diet industry a lot of money, over 46.8 billion dollars in 2005, is earned not from people becoming healthy or losing weight, but rather from people trying to become healthy or lose weight. Because the money comes from repeat business, the focus is surely on the ping-pong reality of bad living followed by short periods of diets and health programs.

So you want a diet that delivers? Here’s one. Drink only water, eat only a thousand calories each day, and combine it with 30 minutes of aerobic activity five days each week. It’s a sure bet you’ll shed pounds. Only two small problems. #1 cravings will likely ruin the diet. 1000 calories and all that exercise will eventually lead to massive hunger and binge eating. One piece of cake, or just one bag of chips, or one extra hamburger will soon cause you to dropping off the diet. #2 the diet eventually ends. You eventually go back to eating the same old way. Next beach season, or next time to put on that dress or tuxedo, or next vacation, or simply the next time you glance at a looking glass on the way out of the shower it will be time to return to a diet to lose the unwanted pounds.

The best diet is one making a change to overall diet, permanently. A lifestyle change to healthier eating habits and more physical activity is the best way to lose weight and keep off the weight. Connie Guttersen created the Sonoma Diet which, as a base, focuses on 10 “power foods.” These are almonds, bell peppers, blueberries, broccoli, grapes, olive oil, spinach, strawberries, tomatoes and whole grains, combined with the diet of the Sonoma country, which includes Asian, Latin American and Mediterranean foods and dishes. The diet includes a wide selection of real, and enjoyable foods so it’s easy to remain on it.

Want a diet that works? Shift the focus away from a short term diet to permanent eating habits that go along with an overall healthy and active lifestyle. That way you won’t gain the pounds in the first place.
