Ahhh! but on those diets I wasn't eating cake....... on Weight Watchers I was tracking my points and eating only around 18 to actually be able to lose any weight. Virtually no fat, very low quantity food. Bfst typically a small low fat yogurt, or 1/3 cup of oatmeal with a sprinkling of sugar (never ever did the fake stuff) and a bit of 2% milk, or one slice of white toast with a tsp of jam. Lunch half a slice of toast mostly dry with maybe one scrambled egg on top, or the like. Snack a piece of fruit and dinner about 3oz meat with maybe 1/2 small baked potato and bit of corn. A touch of butter, but got to liking the sprinkled Molly Mc Butter. I did stop losing weight on this and was told I wasn't eating enough, so I added a bit more food and did start to lose again. But this was not sustainable for me and as soon as I reached goal weight I was on my way up again. I am pretty certain I eat way more calories on this, after all the diets I have been on I am well aware of what calories are in things. I now eat things like a stack of homemade chicken wings for lunch with skin of course. Coconut oil bark, ghee on everything. I don't believe from my experience it is that simple. I do admit though that I was very careful for a long time when I started this diet to keep my quantities down by eating slowly and stopping early and only having a snack if I got really hungry.
