The Nutritionist

I need some suggestions on how to lose weight. I have tried MANY diets to no avail. I know that I didn''t put the weight on overnight, but would like to see something different on the scales when I weigh myself. I''ve tried Weight Watchers, all I lost was my weekly fee. After about 6 weeks I took off 1/2 pound. I''ve read that my problem might be from carbs, but I love veggies. I tried the Atkins Diet and it worked for a while but I found it quite restrictive. Can you suggest something that I can do to at least take a few pounds off? That might motivate me into doing something. Do you suggest diet dinners that are packaged? Help me if you can. Desperate.
