This thesis will seek to answer the often perplexing question: "How should I eat in order to lose weight and feel better?" Is your goal to lose 10 pounds? Is your goal to lose 100 pounds? Or is your goal simply to live a healthy, pain-free lifestyle? In this paper I will examine two of the most popular diets today, The South Beach Diet and the Atkins Diet. I will compare these two diets to another diet known as The Metabolic Typing Diet. I will also explore the psychological impact of positive thinking and goals setting. Ultimately, I will be trying to determine if there is a program out there that will work for everyone.
