I've recently (for a few weeks) been doing Jonathan Bailor's Sane Diet. He wrote The Calorie Myth which is very eye opening about why calorie counting isn't a way to successfully lose weight long term. I got 5 weeks into dieting the conventional eat less -exercise-more method but I couldn't continue as I was so sleep deprived with my small child that I just couldn't also do something as hard as be hungry and do daily exercise. That just made me feel terrible. On the Sane diet I eat more and exercise less. Lots of protein and fats that have given me loads of energy, even though I'm still sleep deprived. And just 20 mins of high intensity exercise a week! And I've been losing weight and trimming up and thoroughly enjoying my food. I highly recommend Googling him. He's got podcasts on Youtube.
