To be honest, I think that diets work differently for different people.  For
me, cutting carbs is the ONLY thing that has ever worked.  I have tried
cutting calories, quantities and just about every thing you can think of.
One time, my (then)doctor insisted that anyone could lose weight by cutting
quantities.  I disagreed.  He put me on a 3 day diet of 8 oz of V8 every 4
hours, insisting that I would lose several pounds by the end of the 3 days.
When I went back, he was astounded to see that I had not lost an ounce!

So...whatever works.  Try different things and when you find something that
works, stick with it.
