I am 54. Went into pre-menopause and gained 40 lbs. I've tried several diets, including the 6 week body makeover. I just don't know what to do anymore.

As for as my experience being a health and fitness writer , You can't say this thing or diet is good for you because every person have different health condition and they have to eat according to their health position
i have written many articles on health and fitness that which diet and food is good for you health , you can visit it and check it according to your choice of selection .
Cutting sugars out!!! Other than that just changing diet to more veg, less fatty meats- I hardly eat pork anymore.
Eating more of Raw Foods and will power to stick to Diet plans
Planning meals ahead really helps me. I usually will do this for just a few days at a time, it's always better to eat the freshest food possible.
Also, portion control! Eating on smaller plates helps control the amount of food you eat. It also tricks your brain into thinking you are eating more than you actually are.
There are many ways to lose weight and it is true that there isn't a magic diet that will help you lose weight.

Good for you on your weight loss lindswalt
Your plan sounds healthy, sensible and realistic, I like it a lot! And it's clearly working !
1. Plan my meals in advance. That way, I don't end up grabbing something that's unhealthy just because I'm hungry.
2. I eat several small meals a day. I usually eat a light breakfast, a light "early lunch" (around 11), a light "late lunch" (around 2 or 3), and then a moderate dinner. If I deviate from that, I have a hard time losing weight, since this helps the metabolism go strong all day long.
3. I think picking a fitness plan that coordinates with your daily routine is key. I personally find that workout DVD's are perfect for me because that takes out a monthly bill from the gym -- and the convenience factor is perfect for my busy schedule
I attribute these key routines to my weight loss. I'm down 15+ since January, and have never felt better.
No single approach, formula, or plan for weight loss can work perfectly for every person. Use the method that works for your best. I share what made losing weight easier for me here:
Since I lost a significant amount of weight and kept it off, I believe I am in the position to be able to offer hope to others.
